Sorry for being late but i am back,
Everton sealed their place in Europe with a 3-1 win against Newcastle United on the back of a few dodgy games such as a 2-2 draw with Aston Villa and a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal. Overall Everton finished 5th which gives the team an automatic place in the group stages of the UEFA Cup.
After the game David Moyes told the official team website,
“The performance was excellent. The first half was as good as we’ve played. It was exciting, it was good entertainemnt and we passed it well. We pushed reallly hard to try and finish fourth, we fell short so it was important to finish fifth. It makes me smile that we have got more European nights to come.”
But players have made it no secret that they want to finish 4th again next season Tim Howard told the official club website,
“We have quality so we were right there. We sputtered towrds the end which kind of solidified fifth and knocked us out of the race for fourth. If we can do that next year, and we have more depth we could be alright we could challenge.”
Hopefully we will finish 4th and i’m sure every Everton fan will agree with me.
