Moyes Down On Wembley Semis

Moyes Down On Wembley Semis

There's only one Wembley fixture that matters to David Moyes.

The fact that this year's FA Cup semi-finals will be played at the home of English football is of no significance to the Everton manager.

Indeed, he believes the games should revert to the traditional system, whereby neutral venues around the country were used.

Moyes believes semi-finals at Wembley are to the detriment of the spectacle of the final itself.

"Semi-finals should always be played at neutral grounds," he said.

"I think anybody who is in love with the FA Cup will tell you that's the way it should be done. Keep the games away from Wembley until the final.

"Wembley has no excitement to me at all unless it's a cup final. The semi-final doesn't excite me. The next game is the important one, so I want to try and win the next game."

Everton's passage through to the latter stages has got Moyes pondering the likelihood of securing his first silverware as Blues boss.

"It's important what it does to Everton as a Football Club," he explained.

"In the past they've had success - they've been in the FA Cup and they've won it - so it's nothing new. It's been a while though, so for us all it's something we would like to achieve and always try to please them when we can and let's hope we can get into the semi-final.

"Getting a trophy is never easy. Look at the competition and the money they spend to get those trophies. We are not in that league but we are certainly in the competition.

"In years gone by we've had good ties but got knocked out. We got drawn against Shrewsbury one year and got knocked out - so we have no excuses."

James DyasTotally agree all the London teams and fans get the advantage of being a bus ride away from the stadium. Plus i can remember when the whole country would come to a standstill on the day of the FA cup final have'nt seen that in a long time. COYB bring the country to a standstill
