We'll never compete for that again, too expensive to find a plane it'll fit in.

The Intertoto at least related to matches in the UEFA Cup. The Texaco Cup and Anglo-Italian Cup were basically glorified pre-season tournaments - to the extent that it's hard to find online who even played in the final. I had to look in the NUFC Ultimate Record.

Intertoto is arguably the highlight of Scott Parkers career. Tier A without a doubt.

Intertoto Cup definitely isn’t Tier B, more like D.

It's still a trophy!
Strictly speaking it's a plaque. Or a big tile.
OK, so at the very least we've won a big tile in the past 50 years! <laugh>

Don't forget we won the Anglo Italian Cup in 1973 by beating Fiorentina. Quite an achievement really considering Swindon Town, Blackpool, Notts County and the mighty Sutton United were the only other English clubs to win this prestigious trophy.
There's a "tier" system of trophies we've won IMO:

Tier A: Top division titles, FA cups, Fairs Cup

Tier B: Charity Shields, Intertoto Cup

Tier C: Second division titles

Tier D: Texaco Cup, Anglo-Italian Cup

The Fairs Cup and the Intertoto Cup are tricky competitions to categorise. By 1969 the Fairs Cup was definitely the predecessor to the UEFA Cup, even if it isn't UEFA-sanctioned, but a Fairs Cup win in say, 1955 was very different than the way we won it. The Intertoto changed formats so often that it's difficult to pin down, and even then a trophy you win 'by default' (as we did) is a strange one - like a trophy for winning a group stage rather than a knockout.

Mbappe will fire us to the title next season.

I think we'll fluke a (formerly known as the Carling) Cup in like 8 years' time.

Within 5 years we'll win something. Fingers crossed they bring back the Texaco Cup.

At my age it has to be within the next 20 years as I haven't got another 50 in me! <wah>

Can't see us winning anything anytime soon.

Could all change with new owners but even then it is difficult. Man City and Liverpool are so far ahead of everyone else now I can't see anyone other than those two winning the league or a domestic cup in the next few years.
If they bugger off from the PL to an European super league.. maybe 'lesser' sides could win stuff. Have the super league for the oil billions and commercial powerhouses and have a league left with some competition.

Until someone takes over and spends a few hundred million on players (and have a good manager as well) then i highly doubt we'll see any trophies, unless we fluke one like Blue & Maroon said. <erk> <neg>
