Are we already in Europe 2008?

Comments (20)

Does anyone know the full UEFA rules for qualification for next season?

Its likely that we'll be joined in the last 4 of the Carling Cup by 3 teams who will qualify for the champions league. Thereby, we might already have guaranteed our UEFA birth for next season?

Or does it default to 7th...answers on a postcard please...

Only Carling Cup winners get UEFA cup qualification last year. If it is one by someone who has already qualified there will be an extra place available via the league

Wonderful win for our boys last night. Yakubu is making his doubters look a little silly and yet again, our style of football is congratulated as we continue to shed our former 'long ball' skin.

So we're into the semi finals-which in itself is wonderful- but I'm interested to know who the majority of Evertonians want to face. Personally, I would be quietly confident facing any of the teams left in the competition...except Chelsea. Which is why I for one will be rooting for our red neighbors when the meet next week.

No chance. We need to either win the UEFA cup or get in to the final of the FA Cup. Or finish 5, 6 or 7th if we are lucky. Or of course win the UEFA Cup.

Re: Andy

Yep - many thanks to Super Sara - she strikes again! Things I noticed...:
The blow-up doll being passed joyously around the away end like a drunken floozy
The players on the bench going bananas (team spirit or what!)
AJ being sent back to his seat like a nuaghty schoolboy by Moyesey..’go and sit down son before you get knocked over’
Betcha all the next QFs involving the ’big’ teams are live on Sky, ITV4/5 etc

Isn’t it nice not to have to keep reading Tony Marsh ranting about how useless he thinks David Moyes is?!

In the early part of this year we were being told all sorts of people like Coppell, Allardyce, Alan Pardew ( yes really!! ) should be coaching our team! Luckily Bill did the right thing and he deserves our praise for that.

Now all he needs to do is get real about Kirkby!!!! :)

Man City v Tottenham, do you really think Man City will last the distance and get into the Champs League?

I don’t think that’s correct Luke. The CC UEFA place went to the PL last season because the final was played out between the shyte & Chelski who both qualified for the CL. If we get to the final & face Chelski - then (assuming they finish in the top 4) we’ll have a UEFA cup place - is my understanding of the rules.

Surely Jeremy you should already know the situation about where the UEFA spot goes?

Thanks for them uploads Phil!

Here’s how it boils down:
1. Top four get Champions League.
2. Fifth gets UEFA Cup automatically.
3. League Cup winner gets UEFA automatically. Not the runner-up. Never has been, never will be. If the League Cup winner is a top-four team, then sixth place gets UEFA Cup.
4. FA Cup winner gets UEFA Cup automatically. If the FA Cup winner is already in the top four, then the runner-up gets UEFA Cup spot. If the FA Cup finalists have already qualified for Europe, then seventh in the standings gets UEFA Cup. Like Bolton did last year.
There are also UEFA Cup spots available through the Intertoto Cup and Fair Play.

Steve (Taylor),
unless there is a change of rules, Carling Cup runners-up don’t qualify for UEFA Cup. Remember 2 seasons ago? Wigan played in the final against.... can’t remember who, probably man u, they lost and didn’t qualify.

Nick - we won’t finsih 4th will we? It would be nice, but you need to get real.

Lets hope I am proved wrong.
