Moyes: Cottagers Improving

by Daniel Alston @efc_danalston


David Moyes believes Saturday's opponents Fulham are showing signs of recovering from their troubling form on the road.

The Cottagers visit Goodison Park at the weekend, a ground where they are yet to earn a single league victory.

In fact, the Toffees have picked up all three points in the last 19 league encounters between the two on Merseyside.

But it's not just Goodison where Martin Jol's side have struggled to emulate their Craven Cottage displays. A victory at Tottenham Hotspur last month was only their third away from home this term.

"I think Fulham have improved in recent weeks," Moyes noted in an exclusive interview with evertontv.

"They've had a few very good away results - winning at Spurs and I think they were a bit unfortunate to lose at Newcastle.

"They have one or two dangerous players and we'll need to be mindful of that."

Half a century ago, a 4-1 victory over Fulham was enough for Everton to clinch the 1962/63 league title.

As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations, several members of that winning side will be in attendance at Goodison Park on Saturday.

For Moyes, who celebrated his 50th birthday on Thursday, it is pleasing to see the heroes of yesteryear inspiring the Club still today.

He said: "Everton are a great Club for what they do with their former players. It's always good to see so many of them. I see a lot of them in the corridors before and after the games.

"We're always glad to see them. It's a great club for how we look after our ex-players.

"50 years ago when I was born, these players were playing for Everton and it's great to see them still active and around the Club."
