Since we started to clutter the General Knowledge thread with football questions and didn't quite follow the rules correctly, let's use this thread for football, or any sports trivia.
Similar format to the general knowledge one, if you get a question right, ask another one. Or just feel free to post a question whenever you like. Not too strict then.

To start with:

Which British football club has won the European Cup more times than its own top league?

No, not Liverpool. They have certainly won the European Cup in it's Champions League form more times than they have won the Premier League, since they haven't won the latter. But they have won the top English division more times than the European Cup.

Edit: Liverpool have won England's top division 18 times, and the European Cup 5 times.

Nottingham Forest is correct.
They won the league in 1978 and the European Cup in 1979 and 1980.
Abderdeen have won the league 4 times but have not won the European Cup. They have won the European Cup Winners Cup and the Super Cup.
