Everton have confirmed they have applied for entry into the Intertoto Cup this summer.
The competition provides an alternative route into the Uefa Cup if David Moyes' side do not win a place via the league.

The top five teams in the Premiership will qualify for Europe, although that could increase depending on who wins the Carling and FA Cups.

Everton and Blackburn are the only English clubs to have confirmed their participation in the Intertoto Cup.

However, Newcastle and Manchester City were also thought to have been interested in the competition, which has changed its format this year.

There will be only three rounds instead of five, with the 11 successful sides going through to the Uefa Cup second qualifying round instead of the first round proper.

Talk about being desperate. :googly:

Everton are only 5 points off a UEFA cup place, anything can happen.

And you're 9 points off a UCL place, if you keep up your amazing form then who knows.

You have to apply in advance for this, even though we may very well automatically qualify.

What you want another chance to embarrass the country in Europe again?


edit: sorry thought I was in the Man Utd forum.

Everton were only this week complaining that their European run had affected the league form so why apply for a comp that would see you start even earlier?

Moyes has stated that because of the new format and the shortened pre season due to the World cup they will be using these ganes as their pre season training session.
