Everyone else is doing it, so why cant we?
Because your season isn't over yet! Do you think you are going to win tomorrow?
I think the majority of the country wants you to win.
I thought we would until agricola jinxed us by starting this thread before our season's finished!
On the plus side it doesn't have some ridiculous European reference in the title!
Thats the important thing.
God i hope we win and wipe the floor with Chelsea tomorrow, everybody i know who isn't a blue is willing us to win, even the red fans.
We deserve it
i hope you beat them but I'm not sure how you deserve it.
By beating the best side in the country on the way?
Yes, but he said it like it was the ultimate unfolding of their lifelong destiny or something. Like they'd donated the most to charity or dug the most wells in Africa, or gone through some kind of terrible crisis and got to the other side through pure force of will.
maybe they're going to donate the trophy to some starving orphans
well then, yes, they would deserve it.
Good interview with Moyes:
Ah well, the rebuilding begins. IMHO we need a right back, and a central midfielder with a bit more nous / strength than Osman.
An Everton XI will be playing either Asante Kotoko or Hearts of Oak this summer:
Yeah, because that would just be silly.
Is the Moyesiah going to break your transfer record for the fifth season in a row?
Well it is tempting fate. It would be like calling the RS thread 'The Liverpool with Alsonso and Barry 09/10 thread'
Re money sounds like there's an interesting review in tomorrow's Guardian about how far up shit creek Premiership clubs are financially:
We still have Alonso so I'm happy
Over 500m less debt than a club we came six points behind and over 500m less debt than a club we came ahead of, shows what a great job Benitez is doing.
Has anyone seen Everton's new shirt?
It celebrates the 25th anniversary of them winning the european cup winners cup(the equivilent of the uefa cap). How small-time is that?
About as small-time as you having to explain what the ECWC was.
And getting it wrong.
* for kopites - the equivilent (sp) of the UEFA cap (sp) was the UEFA Cup
Well it has been abolished for over a decade, all the more reason to celebrate it i suppose.
Wow I had a typo!
It was regarded as the second most prestigious cup in Europe after the European cup so yes it is the equivalent of the Uefa cup today.
I was under the impression it was the "least prestigious" cup, which is why they got rid of it when fixing the system for the big clubs.
Lescott off to Man City?
The previous equivalent of the UEFA Cup was the Fairs Cup wasn't it?
it was the third.
There is no modern day equivelent. it was merged with the uefa cup tho
Not for most of the time when the ECWC was around, no.
Nothing to do with the Cup Winners Cup. The Uefa Cup was previously known as the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup. Changed name in the early 70s.
Now it's going to be called the UEFA Europa League. Good luck in it.
Separate names with a comma.
