    It is a bit of a cruddy cup, but I dont get the England reference. Which cup are you talking about?

    At least England has a league of its own!

    Maybe this is the second 19 year-old thread that has been revived recently!

    This is getting a joke now.

    In case anybody is wondering where the stupid name for the equally stupid competition came from, it's to do with football pools or "toto" being another name for them. The tournament was created by football pools people in Switzerland to keep football pools running during pre-season, then UEFA took it over and maintained its name.

    Nothing but a joke tournament UEFA kept running using Bordeaux getting to the 1996 UEFA final as an excuse.

    How dare you! HSV "won" it in 2007 (together with 10plus clubs :D ) and could therefore qualify for the UEFA Cup the next season. ;)

    But seriously. You're right. Some joke tournament and rightly disbanded.

    Intertwobob Cup it was sometimes mentioned as in results listings!.

    I recall Spurs putting out weak sides at the Goldstone Ground (Brighton's old ground), including a young Alan Pardew in a thrashing by Köln. That match is recorded as a friendly by Spurs themselves, although UEFA record it as an official match.

    "Gerry Francis was the Tottenham manager but he left control of the team to his assistant, Chris Hughton" - 2015 retrospective report on the match in The Guardian before Alan Pardew was to manage Crystal Palace against Spurs.
