David Moyes: Stunned at Cottage draw

An own goal after seven minutes from Tim Howard was cancelled out early in the second half by Marouane Fellaini.

The Belgian then put the Toffees ahead on 72 minutes, but a late equaliser from Cottagers substitute Steve Sidwell in the 90th minute meant the Premier League match ended level at 2-2 at Craven Cottage.

Afterwards, Moyes said: "It feels like a defeat. We controlled all the game, but gave away a terrible goal at the end."

Everton had 27 shots in the match, and Moyes added: "We had total command going into the last few minutes. We should have done more with the chances we had."

Steven Pienaar returned to the side after suspension and was lively, but Nikica Jelavic's failure to turn home several good opportunities was not lost on Moyes.

"He's in a bit of a dry period at the moment," said the Everton boss.

"If he scores, we win the match comfortably. As it is, we give away a shocking goal at the end to make it two each."

Everton are up to fourth as a result of Tottenham losing at home to Wigan, and Moyes added: "The performance was as good as anything we've played this season, or last season. But it's incredible we didn't win."

I

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

W

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
