Everton’s David Moyes acknowledges lesson of Sheffield United’s plunge
David Moyes has warned Everton that Sheffield best mens canada goose jacket United’s rapid descent into League One provides a salutary lesson of what can happen “if you don’t do things correctly”.
Everton entertain Danny Wilson’s side in the Carling Cup on Wednesday with serious problems on and off the pitch at Goodison Park. Barclays best place to buy a canada goose jacket Bank has capped the club’s overdraft at 25m for the coming season, resulting canada goose coat 1000 bulbs garland in Moyes being unable to make one addition to his squad this summer and all monies raised being handed to the club’s creditors. On the playing side, Everton opened their Premier League campaign with a 1-0 home defeat by the newcomers Queens Park Rangers on Saturday and head into the second-round tie with injury doubts over Tim Cahill, Louis Saha and Jermaine Beckford.
Moyes has so far resisted an approach from Arsenal for Phil Jagielka and said he does not have to conduct a fire sale of major talent to safeguard Everton’s future. However, ahead of facing a club who operated in the Premier League only four years ago, he admitted Everton must heed the lessons of Sheffield United’s demise.
“This is a difficult tie, a really difficult tie,” the Everton manager said. “They are a big club in their own right, they are playing with confidence and passing the ball well, they will bring decent support with them, and they will see it as an opportunity. But it also shows you what can happen. You can be canada goose coat 1000 a big club, but if you don’t do things correctly and don’t do things right you can find yourself in League One. It wasn’t too long ago that they were in the Premier League, so that shows that if you don’t do things correctly you can get yourself in trouble.
“Sheffield United best canada goose jacket review are there any canada goose outlet stores are a big club with a big fan base from a big city, so it can be that things go quite quickly wrong. I am sure they didn’t plan it to go that way, I’m not sure whether their financial situation had anything to do with it, can you pick the most expensive canada goose parka but that’s football. We have to make sure we are not one of the big sides who can quite quickly slip away.”
Moyes did not say whether it was the chairman Bill Kenwright’s failure to attract new investment, pressure from the banks, or both, that raised parallels with Sheffield United. But he did identify the players at his disposal as the principal reason why Everton should avoid a similar fate.
He added: “I think we can you machine wash canada goose jacket have a good enough squad to make sure we are healthy enough. I think we have a good group of players and I would expect them to come together. Everton have canada goose coat 1000 calorie a day meal plan been in the top flight for as long as anyone cgjo, but we have to be aware that we need to keep working hard. I said that first of all this season we need to get to 40 points and then push on from there. I think between 10 and 14 clubs in the Premier League will be saying the same.”
Moyes’s downbeat assessment contrasted with his defiant tone on the eve of the QPR game, when the club’s financial problems had been made public via a transcript of Kenwright’s meeting with The Blue Union pressure group. But he said financial constraints are not an excuse for Everton’s poor start.
“I don’t think the situation with the finances changed the mood of the club,” Moyes said. “The players were aware of it. They knew the situation. We have said amongst ourselves that we are not going to use it as an excuse or even a reason for if we don’t play well, because it is the same players as last season. We won’t be feeling sorry for ourselves. When we went on to the pitch on Saturday it was nothing to do with can you pick the most expensive canada goose parka what had or hadn’t been done. We just didn’t perform well enough on the day to get three points.”
Kenwright has tried to broker an agreement with Barclays to allow Everton to sign a player should the club conduct any further sales this summer. Moyes said: “If something moved it might allow us to do something, but I think it would need to be someone biggish probably.”
