No, you put the - across the top of the second vertical line to make it say 10 TO 10... ten to ten being 9:50

In other words: l0 T0 10 = 950

Spot on, Jack. Your turn for setting a teaser!

Can I just set a quick teaser?

If you have a stick which is one metre long, how many times can you cut ten centimetres off it?

Okay, it's either one (because then it's not a 1m stick - pedantic sod) or it's infinity (because you can repeat the task over and over again with different sticks).

If you'd said what team NAME can't you colour in, it would have been a lot easier to understand.

Who was the only barefooted player to score a hat trick past Pat Jennings?

Clue: It was televised.

Hey, get off! I'm next. And stop asking football questions! How am I supposed to know the answer to them? Who's Pat Jennings?

I don't have a television. You did this deliberately, didn't you?

Yes, I have a complete inventory of all your household electrical items.

You forfeited your right to fair play by misrepresenting your question, which I would've got easily, no bother.

Why do I get the impression that you're making these rules up as you go along?

Bare-footed makes me think of the singer, Sandy Shore. "Always Something There To Remind Me".

Was it her?

The answer is one.
I got the puzzle off a premium-rated TV phone-in channel though, and they tend to change the processes quite a lot to come to their answers - so really, any of those you said could have been correct. :-\

Clue: It was televised.

The only bare-footed player I can think of is Zola Budd, but she didn't play football.
