Let's just remind ourselves we've limped past the mighty Oxford and Barnet so far. One game at a time, please.

We limped past them with style and swagger. The hard work in laying the foundations for this phenomenal cup season is already done. The rest should now be plain sailing.

Haven't seen the trophy room on the Susan plans so guess it goes on MB's mantlepiece.

We'll need another thread on how many games from proper European competition we are. 4 cup games plus how many qualifiers?

No qualifiers required. Straight to the group stage for winning the FA cup.

Six group games in Europa League to reach the last 32. So when we win in the final it will have been 11 games to qualify for the following season's Champions' league. Looking forward to all the away trips already.

Won't be that easy. Those knockout games would be 2 legs making it 15 in total. But we could probably do it by winning as little as 8 out of 15 games ;)

I know a really good bar quite close to the Bernabeu. Wonder where the Europa League final is being held in 2020, and the Champions League in 2021?

Zero is the technical answer.

Huddersfield made it up without winning, didnt they?

And dont argue a penalty win is a win, cos its a draw ;)

Surprised nobody's mentioned the World Club Championship match....

If we supported one of the "big" clubs in the Championship we would have done.:)
