Does anyone else feel like we have won an Ultimate Treble? I know the Fa Cup is alot harder to win that the WCC,but,How many teams have been crowned Champs of the country,champs of their continent AND champions of the WORLD!?!?! Not many if any!!So if we wanna play the scousers game of racking up trophy counts and making up thier own little leauges/cups whatever then we can now say we have won a treble twice in a decade.....let them get out of that one:p

While the Treble will always be the league, domestic cup, and continental level cup.... could the WCC be included into the Quadruple?

as ian brown once sung we could be the heavyweight champions of the world .

now we have won it it is a mighty trophy worthy of respect
much as the mickey mouse cup will be if we win it .

now ive got more front than blackpool but that would be one double i would have trouble crowing over :eek:

There are a few different stories floating around about how we got that name, but the most common one is in reference to the "false promises" brought forth by area politicians during the early 19th Century (something continues today). Along the lines of "the pols are so full of hot air it makes the city even more windy".

I'm quite partial to the name "The Second City" (in reference to the fact the most of the original city was burned down in 1871 and a second city was built) but Windy City seems to be more wildly known.

Its hard to put into words just how little I care about your theory, so I don't think I'll bother.

But does Hartlepool's wind have a name? The wind here in Chicago is called "The Hawk" :cool:

if the locals could talk i am sure they would have a name for it but they speak in a cave man like string of ugs . chicago looks to be a great place to visit - do you have more skyscrapers than new york ?

NYC actually has about double the number of skyscrapers (inhabitable building more than 500 meters in height) than we do (120 vs 68), but Chicago had the first and still have the country's tallest (Sears Tower)...

Until this is finished....

Yes but it was impossible to win this last season BUT the Champs League title is what got us here so for me it can be included with last years haul.

That makes good reading

Champions of England

Champions of Europe

Champions of the world

If this was Boxing terms I think that would make us undesputed champion .

And another thing if we are to win the carling cup which the final is in early march I think it would read like this .

Fa Premier league champions

Champions league Champions

World club Champions

Carling cup winners

Community sheild winners

I say we should have the squad photo retaken would look pretty wicked wouldnt it !!
