What do people think the best way to date the European Super Cup is? I noticed on Liverpool players such as Steven Gerrard that the 2001 European Super Cup was said to have been won in the 2001/2002 season. (Liverpool won the UEFA Cup in the 2000/2001 season).
As such, I dated their recent Super Cup win as occurring in the 2005/2006 season (they won the Champions League in the 2004/2005 season), although someone changed it to being the 2004/2005 season for the Super Cup.
The more I think of it, the more I think it should probably just be listed as the single year in which the Super Cup took place (so the most recent Super Cup would be called 2005, rather than 2004/2005, or 2005/2006). That seems to be in keeping with the dates in this particular article. However, I don't know whether UEFA has any specific dating/naming for the year/season the cup took place. Does anyone know?

I would be careful about dating it by year. Taking 1985 as an example - due to fixture congestion the game now normally played in Aug 1984 didnt take place until February 1985. The game that didnt take place between Everton and Juventus would have taken place in November 1985 i.e. two 1985 games. It is unlikely to happen in the near future but not inconcievable.
When Ajax won this trophy in 1972 & 1973 there was an altogether different trophy which must hve preceded the plaque, this trophy was huge, bigger than either the UEFA cup or even the European Champions Cup. So there have been more than three trophies to represent this honour. I have pictures of this trophy if needed
Link in Records and Statistics
This is a small thing. In the records and statistics section, the link to Milan leads to the city of Milan, not A.C. Milan. I'm not really sure how to change that, but somebody can. Thanks! 18.104.22.168 (talk) 17:49, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
