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.
