This one threw up a few laughs here in the Football Transfer Tavern…
It has been a tough couple of years since leaving Everton for David Moyes.
He was touted for greatness by many here in the Tavern following his Merseyside departure, with Sir Alex Ferguson personally choosing the Scottish manager as his successor with the Manchester giants.
Since that moment it has been all downhill for Moyes, with his Man Utd tenure considered by everyone here in the Football Transfer Tavern as an undisputed failure, whilst a short-lived spell with Real Sociedad also failed to wow any of the punters in the Tavern.
He embarked on a new journey with Sunderland over the summer, and whilst his start has been far from ideal; he seemingly hasn’t lost any of his confidence.
Explaining why he felt that the club did not break into the top four during his tenure, Moyes explained: “We just couldn’t break the top four because we didn’t have the finances to buy a centre-forward.”
Discussing how good his side could have been with a top class striker, Moyes said: “I think with that we would have been close to winning the Premier League, we were that good.”
Even the Everton fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern can’t get their head around this!
This is the same David Moyes that was battling for a mid-table finish with Manchester United; despite having a squad that won the league the season before his arrival.
Our landlord thinks that whilst Moyes is definitely a good manager; he is definitely over-egging himself here…
Everton fans – do you think he could have actually won you the league?
