Can Everton gate crash the Champions League party?

Posted 03-26-2010 at 06:10 AM by evertontom
For Everton fans it was probably the most satisfying result of the season.

The 2-0 win at the City of Manchester Stadium made it an impressive double over the side that caused so much unrest in the Everton camp last summer and, if David Moyes is to be believed, directly contributed to the Toffees poor start to the season.

Since then the insults have flown between the clubs' supporters. The nouveau riche City fans have lorded it over their poorer relations, while Evertonians have reminded them that despite their millions, they have achieved nothing yet.

David Moyes, who is very careful with his words in the press, stoked the flames still further by acknowledging that City have spent money wisely but their expensive imports still don't have the collective team spirit forged at Goodison Park.

But that didn't stop the press from previewing this game as "the chance for City to go fourth" rather an opportunity for the Toffees to press their European credentials.

It was very different after the game though as Everton turned in the perfect away performance. City fans feel it was a smash and grab win and although I agree Everton's first goal was slightly against the run of play, they held their hosts at bay for the rest of the game, with City barely registering a shot of note.

In the past Everton have sat on one goal leads, but with the return from injury of players like Mikel Arteta they now have the creativity and spark to hit teams on the break, as displayed by a beautiful second goal, made by Rodwell's burst down the right, Cahill's dummy and Arteta's sweet low finish. The fact a player as good as Artea doesn't even get near the Spain side helps explain why they are favourites in the World Cup 2010 online betting.

The win opens up the door to European football again for Everton. Glancing at the fixture list this was one of their tougher games in the run-in and the fact it was won so comfortably bodes well. With the teams above them all playing each other, it is not beyond the realms of possibility for Everton to make fourth. Anyone who placed a football bet on that happening around Christmas will certainly be getting excited now.

Tricky trips to Villa, Blackburn and Stoke will decide their fate as their strong home form should see them pick up points there. Since the turn of the year only Manchester United have a better league record and with the other contenders showing signs of fatigue, it could be the time for Everton to launch an outrageous late bid for Champions League football.

This is a World Cup and in the morning, meaning no trapped in Spain after winning in celebration of flashbacks scenes. Although few goals, often tedious, can I still miss involuntarily group. At that time, was in a style, no one left, alive, are hard, all has the show was a mystery, let your curiosity and excited to guess, No one moved, like all my childhood was happy, sad part. However, we will grow, as the group will end, entered the knockout, like the adult world is cruel, only to win, so cruel, but also so fierce, let a person cannot bear the but again. But the final like? Old age? But as already to leave the glorious moment.

A World Cup, is a life, the same is irreversible and full of stories, different feeling, the World Cup is on the surface of the comedy, and life. But there is a big different, the World Cup, four years in our life, there are a lot of, can wait to finish. It's interesting that life often many games, to really make people feel dolorous, but life is dull and heavy, some itself. So, the World Cup, absolutely for the artificial game, but most truly happy to give fans and comfort. Although the time adjustable from South Africa to Beijing, will be hard, like two days before midnight, I didn't wake up at will. But except for, what more can I say? The World Cup ended the game, we started again, you and I are living on each of the athletes, refueled! And sincerely for the past month, you in my words to you in advance of the meeting. Said, wish you are moving in his World Cup well on all!
