Because outside the top 6 everyone else is hopeless :lol: Burnley have been good in patches, Leicester too, but Everton in 9th have been diabolical this season, yet are still in contention for a Europa League spot again.
Injuries have played a huge part for many sides , I know WHU for example have only had 16 players available from their entire senior squad twice this season and even last start both they and Watford only had 17 senior players available

I know this is a lot of coulda , woulda and shoulda's but I wonder how we would of gone if we could have kept Reid , Noble , Obiang , Arnautovic , Lanzini , Antonio , Cresswell and Masuaku all fit for even 33 games this season

The 4 games we played v the Top 6 sides with close to our top side we had an unlucky loss to Man City , win against Chelsea and Arsenal , and a draw v Spurs

After Liverpool we have virtually no excuses , Lanzini and Masuaku are both back and the only possible starters missing will be Obiang and Carroll

Everton are missing some players (especially Lukaku ) and you have left some top notch players go as well

Its funny , if you had told me we would of ended up with Moyes and you would of ended with Big Sam a few years ago we would have laughed ourselves to death :lol:
Moyes' last game in charge of Everton was against West Ham. The West Ham fans chanted "Where's your Moyesy gone?" The Everton fans responded with "You've got Sam Allardyce"

IN all seriousness, our season has been a disaster. No Lukaku replacement signed, stuffing around replacing a manager and employing Sam Allardyce. Despite all that we could still finish 7th, and start over. I think you have your top 6, who are miles ahead of the rest, followed by Leicester, Everton & Burnley fighting it out for 7th-9th, although Burnley are slipping, with everyone else essentially in a relegation battle. The true test of ambition for these clubs will be who shuts up shop when they hit 40 points and who keeps going.
40 points get you out of trouble ....... ??

I reckon you may need 41-42 with a lot of lower ranked sides hitting some form

If we get all our players back in the same form that a few of the others coming back from injury have come back in I'm not ruling us out making Top 9
Awesome

City make up for losing to a league one side in the FA cup by minnow bashing in the Carabao Cup final.
