    Yeah.
    2006 - Arsenal
    2007 - Liverpool
    2008 - Chelsea
    2009 - Man United

    Of course Chelsea lost to United in 2008 so they did win one too in that sequence.

    First one has to be an Italian or Spanish club.

    Someone like Fiorentina or similar. Probably a couple of Cup Winners cups in there from the 60s o 70s


    EDIT; ended up googling it. Good question

    Not Fiorentina. If it helps, they won them all over a relatively short period.

    I stand to be corrected, but I think only they and West Ham have won a European cup of any description without ever winning the national title.

    There's probably an argument for Liverpool too with the premier league / 1st division, but that's pretty much semantics.
    There is no emoticon for what I am feeling.

    I think they're both record championship winners in their respective countries.

    It's a team from one the big leagues. Mentioned in a Pats song circa 2000. "Babaz from the Uganda..."

    I reckon it's either an Italian or German side

    First thought was Sampdoria or Parma

    Yeah, it was Parma Stown Rangers. Won the Cup Winners Cup and Super Cup in 1993 (where they beat CL Runners Up Milan and not the Champions Marseille because of the Tapie scandal) and the UEFA Cup in both 1995 and 1999.

    Oleguer, stand up there so I can correct you! Real Zaragoza won the old Fairs Cup in 1964 and the Cup Winners' Cup in '95 (Nayim from the halfway line etc) but have never won La Liga.

    Shouldn't have let that one past me by.

    There are probably others if you count the Intertoto.

    David Seaman's exact words that night! Was shocked you missed that one alright.

    Definitely are but when you had 3 winners a year in some years that's inevitable...

    Malaga and Villarreal both won it for starters and haven't won La Liga.

    In one sense it was a pretty crap tournament but for fans it was deadly, being at weekends. Those trips to Rijeka and Gent were absolute class, the sight and sound of 2-300 Saints locked out of their bins in that stand in Gent will never leave me!

    Going back to that Nayim goal, always thought this photo spoke a thousand words.



    Remember all the wisecracks in the weeks after it about Nayim being the only man in the world who could lob semen from 50 yards away?
