David Moyes’ nasty programme notes have the desired effect

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.

    Being so nasty in program notes is unheard of. Breaking the rules if you like.
    It shows that Moyes has no class.

    Jealousy is such an unbecoming trait.

    Didn’t he force through his own move away from Preston North End when they clearly did not want to let him go. What a sad little man, should stick to acting i.e Lord of the rings

    it’s easy. if he shuts up about it now, it was a well judged attempt to create an atmosphere, win the game, and put everton back where they were at the end of last year.

    if he goes on about it any-more, it’s an obsession, a pathetic attempt to cover up the mismanagement of the sale of lescott, and the dreadful start to the season that followed.
