The season is basically over for Everton after two games in a desperate week all-but ended their hopes of European qualification.

A goalless draw at Aston Villa on Thursday left things on a knife edge, but another galling home defeat, this time against relegated, rock-bottom Sheffield United on Sunday, means Everton will surely not qualify for even the Europa Conference League now.

Geno and Matthew discussed the games on the latest episode of SOS Radio. Together, they looked at what almost certainly missing out on Europe will mean for Everton’s preparations for next summer, and where things went so badly wrong for Carlo Ancelotti’s men on Sunday.

Matthew and Geno then previewed Everton’s next two games which round the season off - the home clash with Wolves on Wednesday, and the trip to champions Manchester City on Sunday.

Matthew is one of the (un)lucky 6,500 in attendance at Goodison Park on Wednesday - what is he expecting? Will things be any different with fans back in the stands? Everton did, after all, win two out of two when 2,000 were at Goodison in December. And do they have any hope of getting a result at Champions League finalists City?
