Moyes pleased with late win over Spurs

By on December 9, 2012

David Moyes Everton managerDavid Moyes is pleased that his side turned the tables on the opposition today and stole the points late on.

Everton have been the victims of late equalisers in recent weeks, and Moyes said it was about time his side returned the favour after watching the Blues come back from 1-0 down against Spurs to win 2-1 and take back fourth spot.

“After the few finishes like that where we have lost points we were due one,” he said.

“If Everton hadn’t won we would be sitting here asking how they hadn’t it. We played terrifically well and the attacking play we had was fantastic.”

“I actually think our poorest passage of play was in that last 10 minutes,” admitted Moyes. “We were trying to move players around; it was scrappy and we had tried everything to get ourselves an opening.

“But we kept at it and we got it in the end.

“I thought Seamus Coleman played great today but I’m not convinced he was trying to pick out Steven. But it’s a ball that gave us a chance to score and Steven’s header was terrific.

Jelavic’s finish was great as well because he was alert and alive. He could have been still but he gambled on something maybe nicking through and to finish it first time was excellent.”

    It was great to see the two players both needing to score scoring today, Jelly has been working his socks off but the chances havent been going his way,this will settle him down to go on a scoring spree. Stevie Pea who has scuffed a few chances of late will be over the moon to notch a good goal today. One thing i will say is the crowd have been quiet, the PARK end used to have a competion with the GLADY END on who where the loudest AND THE UPPER BULLENS USED TO BANG THERE FEET ON THE WOODEN FLOOR WHICH MADE A SOUND LIKE THUNDER,then all would join in its called The Goodison Rour, not just when we score,but other times in the game,we have got a great chance to get top four this season,so supporters lets get it on.

    The more i look at the Jelavic goal against Spurs,the more i belive what a great goal it was,not a thirty yard pile driver or a flying header,but to catch on to a overhead kick avoid the offside trap hit it in one stride was one of the hardest things to.
    A truely great goal.
