Fifth suits us just fine

So, Saturday saw Chelsea somewhat fortuitously crowned winners of the Champions League. Just as well we didn't get fourth spot, then - it would have been all the more painful to have an invitation to dine at Europe's top table in our hand only for it to be ripped away by Didier Drogba and UEFA. Commiserations to Spurs, whose manager's face will have sagged even more than usual at the news (and the prospect of some of his stars getting itchy feet)...

Anyway, back to us. I wonder what odds you'd have got pre-season on us finishing higher the winners of the Champions League, the FA Cup and the League Cup? Over the next few days, Paul will be looking at the secrets (now not so secret) of our success, while I'll be looking to the future.
