Moyes may have put neck on line


David Moyes reported no injuries from last night in a very brief Everton pre-match presser following last night’s clash in Greece.

He was naturally disappointed with the outcome but with things still very much in our own hands as far as qualification is concerned not seemingly over so.

With the Hammers still at the top of Group A and the home leg to come against Olympiacos he remains confident of the team’s chance of progressing to the next stage of the competition.

In his post match summary of the game he made it clear the club had a bigger issue on their minds last night – Everton on Sunday!

Having done so, he may have put his neck on the line, for anything other than a win will be seen as a failure with The Toffees currently sitting in 16th place with just seven points.

Commenting on the job in hand at the London Stadium the manager said: “Everton are a hard nut to crack, they’ve probably played a bit better away from home this season.

“I don’t see teams beating them easily, I see a resilient team who keep at it and they have players capable of scoring goals.”
And he assured the fans that no spirits  need to be lifted within the squad after the two losses this week.
He explained: “The spirits are great, we don’t need to lift the spirits as they are terrific.”

    If Moyes doesn’t get the sack after the way we have played for pretty much two years in the league and this latest insult to the supporters then I am not sure when they will get rid of him.

    We have signed quality players have brilliant youth players that are leaving in their droves because there is no chance of representing the first team, if we are not careful we will lose these players over the next couple of seasons.

    Get in a manager that can play multiple different ways such as a De Zerbi or a Frank or Alonso from Leverkusen anyone but Moyes, we have the nucleus of a great team and they are being sold short by a manager that is incapable of coaching teams to play possession, he has been a great servant and it is risky but in a season where there is a lot of relegation candidates it’s as safe a time as any to make that transition.
