Everton are still fourth in the English Premier League table after vanquishing UEFA Cup hopefuls Portsmouth 3-1 at home on Sunday. Yet there is a small question mark hovering over their manager David Moyes’ long-term commitment to the club.
Moyes has been in charge of the Merseyside Blues since 2002 and has been one of the primary factor in galvanizing one of the also-rans of top flight English football to a side very much capable of finishing in the top six at least. His contract at Goodison Park runs out at the end of the next season but Moyes doesn’t want to sit for any contract negotiations at the moment.
In time we will get to the contract. I don’t want anything to ruin the focus.
The crowd is bouncing here. I think we now have the realisation that we can play against teams and cause them problems.
There’s a determination and a real desire to achieve things. We have a great team spirit.
We have been consistent and we are doing everything we can to make a real go of it.
David Moyes, you see, wants to focus on steering Everton to fourth in the table and then commence his contract talks. That is truly noble of the man and I am sure that all Everton fans would want Moyes to stay on as Everton manager in the long run.
