Beyond Trebles

Forget about trebles as won by for instance PSV (1988, European Champions' Cup, Dutch League, Dutch Cup) and Manchester United (1999, Champions' League, English League, FA Cup) or quintuples as those of Celtic (1967, Champions Cup, Scottish League, Scottish Cup, Scottish League Cup, and the Glasgow Cup), Ajax (1972, Champions Cup, Dutch League, Dutch Cup, Intercontinental Cup, and European Super Cup) and Bayern München (2013, Champions League, German League, German Cup, European Super Cup, and FIFA World Club Cup), or even the sixtuple of Barcelona (2009, Champions League, Spanish League, Spanish Cup, Spanish Super Cup, European Super Cup, and FIFA World Club Cup).
