Villa Should Enter The Inter Toto

We asked, following on from the quotes by Aston Villa manager David O'Leary about fixing up a tougher pre-season, if Villa should enter the Inter-Toto cup.

Seems the vast majority who voted think we should, with 69% saying yes, 12% agreeing but only if we invest in a bigger squad over the summer, and the remaining 19% saying no way jose.

I guess the problem with entering it is if we win and do qualify for Europe. Without a better than average investment in the summer, we will simply stretch an already small (but honest!) squad.

What are the rules about entering? Is it the highest-placed team not qualified for Europe that chooses to apply?

I think the highest placed non euro qualifier has first refusal.

Yes, why not enter it again. It was popular with the supporters, we used to pull in some decent crowds. Surely it will be better playing some reasonably decent opposition than coming up against the no hopers we've been meeting in our earlier games over in Sweden?
