NEIL ATKINSON, Mike Nevin, John Gibbons and Rob Gutmann look back on 2000/01, otherwise known as the treble season.

In this first part they look at the summer business, discuss Phil Babb and examine the first third of a landmark season for the club.

Tons of discussion around Leeds and Sunderland too. A more patient discussion rather than the usual rushes but...
