A rule that was always present and had been implemented by the Spanish FA to promote then 5th place Real and CL holders into the CL and drop the 4th placed club, into the UEFA Cup.

 

 

Almost. 
The rule was that, in instances where a league already had the maximum of four Champions League places, and a team from that league won the competition but did not finish in the top four domestically, it was up to the domestic FA to decide which of the two teams would play in the Champions League the following season.

When something similar happened in Spain, Spanish FA obviously binned Real Sociedad for Madrid. Everton were the opposite of victims; they could have easily been dumped straight into the UEFA Cup - there was an obvious precedent.

To be fair, Villarreal were hardly shite that year. They went all the way to the semifinals. 

 

Fair enough, but would the outcome have been different if they were playing against 10 scarecrows and a toddler? I'm not convinced it would.

It would have been exactly the same if that cheating cunt Collina was the ref of course.

The toddler would have been picked up and launched at the opposition.

They bang on about them being thrown out by Collina because UEFA didn't want 5 English teams in the tournament. They obviously have no reasoning why UEFA wanted this apart from the fact that Liverpool were involved.

 

They never said a word when 5 English teams qualified a few years ago or why all the smaller leagues have been given more hurdles to overcome since to qualify for the group stages by playing more games. 

They have no rational thinking. In every sport, even going back to jousting, a champion has the right to defend that title. Shower of cunts.

Evertonians can hold down responsible jobs, be normal rational human beings and make logical choices. As soon as it comes to footy and Liverpool FC in particular they just become irrational biased jibbering wrecks.

They played against 10 scarecrows and a toddler in the UEFA Cup and they got snotted.

Throwback to when Everton made the Covid 19 pandemic about Heysel. 

Denied the chance to be knocked out the Europeean cup in the 1st round?

It's like a competion for them.

Who can shoehorn heysel into the most random topic.

Next time you hear an Everton fan talking about that game, just say, "Collina was right. Bent was holding the Villareal defender". Then just sit back and watch the reaction. It's like throwing water on a gremlin.

Terry Leahy is a Scouser and famous Everton season ticket holder who ran Tesco for years. I guarantee if you’d been on a work do with him and he’d had a few drinks and he got to know you were a Scouse red he’d be calling you a murderer within two minutes.

Dunno about you? but I’m convinced the team who would go on to finish 11th in the league behind Wigan and Bolton with a goal difference of -15 were defo on the brink of European greatness till Collina cheated them out of another European Cup.

Kevin Kilbane was on football focus a while back and said that game affected Evertons entire season. 

 

He said every time they asked Collina about a dodgy decision he smirked and wouldn't answer. 

 

Funny the way everyone is against them and things affect them forever.

You can plot the route they would have had in the European Cup in 85/86, because a "bye" went into the draw in their place.

 

Anderlecht (a decent side back then, led by Enzo Scifo) got the bye, so Everton - who have only ever beaten one good European side in their history - would have had to get past them.  The second round would have been an easy tie against Omonia, before a rematch with Bayern (Matthäus, Rumenigge, etc) in the quarters. Assuming they repeated their greatest ever result, they would have met Steaua in the semis; needless to say, the real-world winners would not be a pushover. That would take Everton 1986 - that year's second-best English team - to a final against Barcelona (who had seen off champions Juve en route to the final).

 

And they've all convinced themselves that they would only have had to turn up to win the trophy. Nobheads.

While they fantasise that Everton in 1985/6 were the best team in Europe, in the real world they weren't even the best team in their postal district.
