Can I be pedantic and say that none of the London teams are based geographically in the city of London.

Might need to check, but I think that United are geographically in Salford.

Technically Old Trafford is in Greater Manchester, but out side the boundaries of the City of Manchester. Being pedantic, the question was What are the 7 cities… so there are only 5 as the cities of Manchester and London can’t !

We have the terms “brace” for scoring 2 goals in a game, and “hat-trick” for 3. Does anyone know the terms used in UK for 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 goals scored in a single game ?

Is four ‘quadruple’? Is eight ‘impossible’?

Nope to both. (Although 9 is known as “match fixing”)

Nope. Our John Simpson scored 9 in our Scottish Cup win against Royal Albert.

9 in a match should be a Simpson!

No. I didn't google it. I did cheat though. I asked my mate who knows all this kind of stuff. Hehe.

I am sure that I have heard the expression "nap hand" or "going nap" being used, but not being a card player, I am not sure what it means (without cheating by looking it up). Could it be 5?

I’ve heard it for 5 wins in a row. I also suspect it is poker related

I remember it being used in newspaper headlines when a team scored 5 in a game for example  "Jags go Nap" after a 5-0 win
