Everton are now the EUFCC champions having won 4-0 against Fulham at the weekend. This is their 155th win in the competition and is the first win since they beat Manchester United 3-1 back on 20 February 2010.
For the first time in five years, the team ending the season as unofficial English champions is neither Manchester United nor Chelsea. The honours go to Everton at the end of an exciting season which started with 2011 summer champions Man United holding on for two months, and has since seen the title change hands as follows:
23/10 Man United 1-6 Man City 12/12 Chelsea 2-1 Man City 31/12 Chelsea 1-3 Aston Villa 2/1 Aston Villa 0-2 Swansea 21/1 Sunderland 2-0 Swansea 11/2 Sunderland 1-2 Arsenal 18/2 Sunderland 2-0 Arsenal (FA Cup 5th Round) 25/2 West Brom 4-0 Sunderland 11/3 Man United 2-0 West Brom 11/4 Wigan 1-0 Man United 21/4 Fulham 2-1 Wigan 28/4 Everton 4-0 Fulham

Everton continue their great run with their 6th consecutive game in the English version.
The next opponents are Leyton Orient in the Capital One Cup 2nd round match on Wednesday night. It will be Leyton Orient's first game in the competition since February 2011 when they drew with Arsenal in the FA Cup.
Can Leyton Orient take the EUFCC into the third tier? Watch this space!
Time for the annual update. Everton began the season as champions. The title then changed hands in the following matches:
01/09 West Brom 2-0 Everton 15/09 Fulham 3-0 West Brom 29/09 Fulham 1-2 Man City 09/12 Man City 2-3 Man United 01/04 Chelsea 1-0 Man United (FA Cup quarter-final replay) 14/04 Chelsea 1-2 Man City (FA Cup semi-final, Wembley) 21/04 Tottenham 3-1 Man City
The unofficial championship, just like the official one, was thus dominated by Manchester, with the title staying in the city for over six months in a row from September to April. However, it is Tottenham who take the honours into the summer break, for the first time since 1975. As a Spurs fan, I can say that that is a minor comfort after narrowly missing out on Champions League qualification yet again!
The English championship is now heading into the slightly uncharted territory of League One this Saturday following Sheffield United's win at Aston Villa in the FA Cup 3rd round. They will be playing against Notts County at Meadow Lane this weekend.

Following the run of Wolves has champions we had a new champion following their loss to Crawley Town a couple of weeks ago. They in turn have now surrendured the championship to Oldham Athletic following the 1-0 win at the weekend.
