Any dream will do

The long wait is over: we can finally looking forward to lifting some silverware.

The trophy in question? The Intertoto Cup...

You may be wondering how exactly we've won it in December when we played our last Intertoto fixture back in August. Well, the trophy goes to the last side standing in the UEFA Cup that has made it through the Intertoto qualifying route. And that's us. The trophy is due to presented at our next UEFA Cup home fixture, the second leg against SV Zulte Waragem on 22nd February.

It'd be easy to scoff, but really it's better than the usual kick in the bollocks we're used to every season. If you don't count the old First Division trophy we lifted in gaining promotion to the Premiership in 1992/3, then it's the first silverware we've won since the Fairs Cup in 1969.

That said, I've not heard anything about plans for an open-topped bus parade yet...
