Where Were Ya? is a test of your football transfer knowledge of players who play for a club in one of the Big Five European leagues. The 'Big Five' represent the five most successful football leagues in Europe, which are made up of the Premier League in England, La Liga in Spain, the Bundesliga in Germany, Serie A in Italy and Ligue 1 in France.
This is a challenging game and not for the faint hearted. Do you think you’re good enough? The game opens to show a box telling you that this is your 1st guess of a certain specified number. This number depends on how many clubs the footballer has played for and been transferred from and to.
The mystery footballer's first club will be shown in a Wikipedia style table before you begin. Start typing in the surname of a footballer who plays in the league or leagues that you have chosen. When you enter just two letters of the player’s name, a list of player name suggestions will appear. Utilising this function, you can just click on the name of the footballer to confirm your guess. Every guess reveals another club that they used to play for. The feedback is all based on their current club and age.
Well done, you have guessed the correct player and you can now share your score with your mates on social media. A dialog will appear displaying your stats to examine and showing a ‘Share’ box. Click on this button and ‘Game copied to clipboard’ will flash up. You can now paste your results into Twitter, WhatsApp etc.
You can check your personal stats at any time by clicking the bar chart symbol in the top right corner of the screen.
The mystery player will have made at least one appearance for a club in The Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Ligue 1 or The Bundesliga in 2021/22.
