For at the stage when most Premier League clubs actually join the competition they ONLY have to overcome FOUR rounds of competition, before the winner gets their hands on the gleaming silverware. (Contrast that with the year Thistle won it, when they played precisely THREE times that number of games (12)! (This modern day paltry number of competitive rounds for most top tier teams to win a national trophy could well be a record! Wonder if it is in European/World football.…‘Guinness Book Of Records anyone’?) NB: It also surely (even, ever so ‘slightly’) takes the gloss off those teams who like to bask in the wondrous achievement of winning… the glorious ‘Treble’! We know who you are! Who can miss you?) It depends on what you call "a national trophy". Many nations have preseason trophy played between the league and cup winners (eg English Community Shield or whatever it is called this season). Arguably that would be a national trophy won by winning one game. Also, Scilly Isles have a national football league with just 2 teams. They play each other many times for the league, but again the cup is over just 1 game. Would that be a national trophy ? Are Scilly Isles any different from Scotland/N. Ireland/ Wales/England when it comes to "national trophy" Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
