Baines: Moyes needs backing

Leighton Baines tangles with Jack Wilshere in Tuesday's 0-0 draw between Ars

The Goodison Park club are currently sixth in the Premier League table, four points adrift of Arsenal in fourth, following their 0-0 draw at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Moyes, who is out of contract in the summer, admitted after the match that the Toffees may now need to win all of their remaining fixtures to have any chance of joining Europe's elite next term.

And England left-back Baines feels that the Scot's task of matching their Premier League rivals would be made easier if he was afforded greater backing in the transfer market.

He told reporters: "We've been steady over the years. We've been shy of challenging for the Champions League and are edging our way closer.

"We have not had that big push in terms of giving the manager that backing to buy the players that would put us in the mix.

"It is one thing having it and obviously you have to spend it wisely. You have to get the right players.

"So it would not be a given with a good amount of money but it would definitely help."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
