Do you lot consider charity shields as trophies?

Obviously it's not considered a major trophy but you still have to qualify to play in it by either winning the league or the FA cup and then play a team over 90 mins for a prize.

For me it should be considered.

The reason I say this is because when I see these trophy tables it shows us having won 15 major honours, which is correct, 9 titles, 5 FA cups and the cup winners cup.

But we have won 9 charity shields which should see us on 24 really

Just wondered if others counted charity shields or not.

Used to count a lot in the seventies when liverpool used to win it, but not since. In fact the first I remember of it was when Howard Kendall referred to it as, "A pre-season game and a chance to get fit."

Never really counted.

If it wasn’t for Forest or Palace in the Simod Cup things would look a whole lot better..

Palace was the Zenith Data Systems Cup, was the Simod Cup the year before i think

Southall refusing to go up the Wembley steps to collect his losers medal still makes me laugh

And the ScreenSports SuperCup, beaten over 2 legs by Liverpool in the final

About 20,000-25,000 for Anfield and Goodison!

City will surpass us this season and Chelsea in the next few I imagine.

Won’t be long before nine league titles and five FA cups doesn’t seem that impressive
Hey there mister can you tell me what happened to the seeds I've sown
Can you give me a reason sir as to why they've never grown

It doesn't now to be honest. Nobody cares except us, and most of us probably don't.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Think Villa have only 1 league and 1 FA cup post ww2.

EC as well obviously but as with everyone bar us, they’ve a handful of league cups.

Final: beat Barcelona 2-0 (Lineker, Mountfield)
