Moyes is in the final year of his contract at Goodison Park and he revealed earlier this week he was in no rush to sign a new deal.

Howard believes keeping Moyes is central to Everton's future plans and admits whoever does finally replace him faces a tough job, likening it to Manchester United's search for a successor to Alex Ferguson.

"Obviously for us to go forward and have what we have, we need him to be steering the ship. It's vital to keep him," said Howard.

"I remember talking about this the last time he signed a contract, about how important he is to us.

"The next person who comes in after David Moyes is going to have a very difficult job because the gaffer has done brilliant here.

"When you have longevity and success, it's hard to match. It's a very similar situation here at Everton to United and after Ferguson."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
