Howard: Everton Fans 'Unfair' to Moyes

MOST COMMENTED

Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard criticized his team’s fans for booing David Moyes and targeting such chants as “you’re getting sacked in the morning” at their former manager as Everton beat Manchester United 2-0 at Goodison Park on Sunday. Moyes was booed before kickoff on Sunday, which came in stark contrast to the standing ovation he received last May during the final home game of his 11-year reign at the Liverpool club.

After the game, Howard, who was signed by Moyes, urged Toffees fans to be more respectful. “That is unfair on him,” the USA international said. “We have brilliant fans, but it's unfair. He was the second coming, the messiah 12 months ago, and I don't think as Evertonians we should ever forget that. He wouldn't want me feeling sorry for him. I love David Moyes. I think he is a brilliant manager. He was here for us and I will be forever grateful.”

The win left Everton just one point behind fourth-place Arsenal with three games remaining. Howard is convinced his team can pip the Gunners to fourth and qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season. “We have to play Southampton away, Man City here. We want to go into that last game [at Hull City] still feeling like we are 90 minutes away from Champions League football. That's a lot of pressure on us, to get the results right against three top teams.”

He added: “If you can't concentrate now with Champions League football on the horizon, then you will never be able to do it. Hopefully Arsenal can drop a point for us and do us a favor. But we still have to do our job and there is no question in my mind that we will.”
