After this weekend, Everton will, at best, be seeded 7th in next season's Uefa Cup 1st round, but could fall as far as 16th - based on the latest figures from our favourite Uefa Cup Seedings site.
By the way, Metalist Kharkiv will definitely be unseeded ? anyone fancy another trip over there?

Can’t imagine we’re gonna get anyone of Kharkiv’s ability this year.
Bout time we got some Moravian farmers. We’re due an shoo-in draw.

Greg is right that AC Milan will be ahead of us and now so will Ajax after their defeat in the play-off game. I reckon that the only other team that can get past us is Stuttgart who are in the Intertoto.
This means that we will be seeded 9th or 10th and will almost certainly be in the top pot for the group draw. Last season a team with our present coefficient would have been seeded 11th and subsequently been in the top pot.
However, I agree with Glenn that there are no pushovers and we’ll have to play well to make progress.

Paris Saint Germain
Stuttgart (and Besiktas) start in the qualification rounds of the UEFA Cup so there is a chance they could be knocked out early in which case Everton would move up 1 place.
However please note that the losers in the Champions League 3rd qualifying round will also be transferred to Uefa Cup R1. So if there are any upsets and a team with seeding higher that our 43.914 loses in CLQR3 then they will come into the Uefa Cup seeded above us and push us down a place.
In summary I think we will almost certainly bee seeded in Pot 2 for the Uefa Cup group stage (provided we win in R1). In order to reach Pot 1 we need 2 teams seeded above us to lose in UCR1 AND no teams seeded above to lose in CLQR3.
