    In the BBC article about 'Why we should care about the European Super Cup'...

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49316920

    "Liverpool had started the season with the chance to win an incredible seven domestic trophies but were denied a first piece of silverware for 2019-20 when they lost to Manchester City in the Community Shield.
    Still, six trophies would be unprecedented in England. The best previous haul was Manchester United's four of Premier League, League Cup, Community Shield and Club World Cup in 2008-09."

    I thought we won 4 trophies last season, but maybe my memory is playing tricks again.

    There aren't 7 domestic trophies are there, 4 is the magic number and we completed that task last year. The BBC aren't a news operation any more and I doubt their football journos are real journalists either.

    I agree 100% mate, but you’re wasting your breath on here.
