Man City leave Goodison Park with no class AND no points
Everton boss David Moyes used his programme notes for Saturday’s game against Manchester City to take a pop at his opponents over last year’s pursuit of Joleon Lescott.
He said: “There is no doubt that Manchester City Football Club treated us with little respect and broke rules in the summer transfer of Joleon Lescott. I found it very difficult to accept that a club that until recently had so many similarities to Everton should suddenly start acting with no class.”
But Moyes ended up with a double triumph – getting all that off his chest in a very public manner and pulling off a comfortable victory to bring Roberto Mancini’s unbeaten run to an abrupt end.
