Nice work with the stats. I have always enjoyed this column.
I think as far as the champions league era is concerned, Inter are the only team to not start with a single Italian, Materazzi in for just the last minute.
Interestingly it was Jose Mourinho who started with almost an entire Portugese Porto team(10 out of 11) that triumphed in 2004, I think should be the highest in Champions league.

What happens with Community Shield when the same team wins the FA Cup and the League and when more one player scores the same number of goals at the end of the season?

Hey Martin, samuel eto'o won the treble with barca last season and also with inter this season. Is he the first player to do so or has anyone achieved this before.

Hey Martin . . .
Now the season is over, I was wondering if you went back through History of the Football Leagueand awarded points for how teams finished (ie. 96 points if you won Premier league, 1 point if you finished bottom league 2) how a league table would look and who would be the most successful teams in history?
I hope that question is clear, thanks for the columns every week!

Inter Milan recently won the European Cup final without a single Italian in the starting lineup. Are they the first team to win the final without a player from the clubs country starting the match. It is certainly an extraordinary stat and i cant think of any other team.
