I recently turned 35 and in my time supporting us ('96-'97 season to the present day) I've seen us win the Intertoto, the Peace Cup and the Play-offs.

Glory days, the Peace Cup.

Actually, didn't we win some random pre-season thing in Qatar or wherever it was last summer?

I was always disappointed we never won the Makita Tournament.  But then again I donít think we took part in it.

We did in 1990, I was there both days

Me, too.  How well those games prefaced Dr. Joe's tenure...

I was there as well. We slept in the car on a service station and had a kickabout with some lads from Cheltenham in the car park.

Seems Ajax might have been lucky last night.

Didn't think that was a penalty. His arm was down by his side, the ball was blasted at him from close range and he tried to move his arm behind his back.

Well VAR decided to not have to make any decision on whether he was moving his hand behind his back or to block the ball, because the keeper was breathed on by an attacker. (Actually they were calling back for the pen, then decided the foul beforehand).

100% a deliberate handball for me
