A couple of series teasers

1. Designate easy

Bobby recently bought a 10-volume set of encyclopaedias.

At present, he has only arranged 8 of the 10, in fetch following order

8, 5, 4, 1, 7, 6, 3 and 2

Using Bobby's system, where would volumes 9 and 10 go?

2 Designated medium

What is the next letter in this series?

A, B, G, D, E, Z, E, T, ?

9 between 4 and 1,
10 between 6 and 3
I'm often accused of acting like I don't care






It's not an act!!

Sort of a brain teaser - Charlton played in consecutive FA Cup finals in 1945-46 and 1946-47
Both games went to extra time but is the other connection ?
