Recommended Posts

Big piece in the Independent by Brian Viner, an Evertonian himself....

(...Moyes is not without his critics among Evertonians. On some of the unofficial websites there has been plenty of carping these past few weeks, with some impressively deluded individuals even calling for change at the helm. "I'm not aware of that," he says, when I bring it up. "If people are dissatisfied, I find that strange. This season we didn't look out of place at any stage in the Uefa Cup [which Everton exited in a last-16 penalty shoot-out against Fiorentina] and our style of play has improved no end. It sounds to me like those people need educating. If we do qualify for Europe, it will be three out of four years. I'm not sure that happened prior to my arrival, not for a long, long time.")

 

Take that!!!

 

There's also this in an article about the transfer market (http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/footbal...uys-821647.html

 

Good shoppers: Three managers who got it right

 

HARRY REDKNAPP (Portsmouth)

 

ALEX FERGUSON (ManU)

 

DAVID MOYES (Everton)

Buys:

Buys: Yakubu (Middlesbrough, £11m), Phil Jagielka (Sheff U, £4m), Leighton Baines (Wigan, £4m), Steven Pienaar (B Dortmund, £2m), Stefan Wessels (Bayern Munich, free).

 

Moyes has limited funds but he has largely spent them well. Yakubu's early run of goals provided impetus, Jagielka has played 46 matches in various positions. Pienaar, whose permanent transfer has been agreed, has impressed. Baines' impact has been limited, but he is only 23.
