Yesterday marked ten years since David Moyes took over as manager of my favourite football team, Everton. I started supporting them in the heyday of Liverpool's successes (when I was about 12) as they hail from the same city but were considerably less popular. I've followed them ever since, through thick and thin. Over the years they have developed a wonderful habit of beating the top teams and losing to the poor ones. But, as you can see below, under Moyes' superb leadership we have been doing pretty well over the last few seasons, especially when you consider my team survives on a tenth of the budget of the big 4-5 Premiership teams.
So here's to ten more rollercoaster years Moyesy, my son, and let's finally get some silverware (...we get to the semis of the FA Cup if we win this weekend).
