According to the BBC, Everton have no chance to qualify for Europe!
I'm not a conspiracy theorist so it's probably just bad journalism but no mention of Everton as one of the Intertoto applicants (we did didn't we?)
And when they mention the Fair Play place they say Man City are in the driving seat but when you look at the Fair Play League , we're 2 places above City.
You'd think the Beeb didn't want Everton in Europe again next season?

The UEFA website now confirms that Aston Villa will play an away leg on July 20th and the home leg seven days later. They'll play the winner of games between teams from Northern Ireland, Finland or Denmark. How jealous we'll be at those Brummie boys playing in the Arctic Circle, legoland or Linfield. I think we should let them know before Sunday. Here's hoping!

Any scenario in 6th we are in the Intertoto.
Pompey win the cup and finish 6th: We finish 7th we are in the InterToto.
Cardiff win the cup: We have to finish 6th to guarantee anything.
So if we are sitting in 7th at the end of league season, seeming like we have blown our chance of Europe, it could all change after the FA cup final!
Every cloud has a silver lining!
Thats also barring Man City getting 9pts from 9 and Pompey losing all their remaining league games!

It is an absolute disgrace to think that way (Providing you are serious).
My god !
How Moyes lovers will stop at nothing to put a positive spin on the garbage we are playing. And the spineless capitulation that we are witnessing is beyond me.
The inter toto is for losers for christ sake !
So come on then.
Tell me again how good we where early on in the season and how our football was fluent and wonderful to watch.
Oh ! Then tell me about the trophies and 4th place finish and how we strolled to victory against cannon fodder opposition.
Like Fulham etc etc.
Im’ sorry lads but i’m sick of this. But we have improved argument.

We all know we have run out of steam, but let's just see if we can beat Villa, hang on and secure 5th and build again for next season.

Cast your mind back to the first half of the season, if you can remember that far, and how would you describe our football then??

Up to the Fiorentina 2nd leg, this season was really enjoyable, but now we?re sweating on 5th and possibly even 6th place. Unfortunately we can?t have a successful 3/4 of a season and unless we beat Villa this weekend, I?m afraid they?ll have undone ALL the good work that came before our exit from the Uefa Cup.
