Moyes Takes LMA Award

Moyes Takes LMA Award

David Moyes has been named the League Managers' Association (LMA) Manager of the Year.

Moyes has now won the award three times, following triumphs in 2002/03 and 2004/05.

This season he has steered Everton to fifth place in the league and to an FA Cup final.

Despite having limited resources in comparison to his rivals, Moyes and his side despatched Aston Villa, Middlesbrough, Liverpool and Manchester United in the earlier rounds of the competition.

And in the league, the Scot overcame a tricky start to oversee the Blues' rise to fifth place for the second successive season.

The award was announced at the LMA annual dinner in Nottingham on Tuesday evening.

LMA Chairman, Howard Wilkinson, said: "Since joining Everton, David has not only transformed the club's fortunes, he has also created a huge fan base - including many of his fellow managers. 

"With only modest financial backing, he has shown what can be achieved through discipline, dedication and an innate ability to get the best out of every player."

Andrew NallyI am so proud to be an evertonian, we may not have lifted the trophy yesterday but in my eyes we were still winners!!! Well done David Moyes and all the players!! Can't wait for next season!!

Paul LyonsMoyes is already an absolute legend. In the dark days of Walter Smith it was pretty difficult to envisage the position we are in now. He has instilled a winning mentality into the club and a team spirit that cannot be matched! Well done Moysey!

Richard ReadingWell done David. You've eventually got some much deserved respect. Very much deserved. Thank you for once again a brilliant season even after such a poor start. Your limited funds have not helped but you still confound all critics and opposed to teams that have spent over 100 Million this season, you've spent little over 18. In the last 7 seasons you've taken us from relegation candidates and turned us into challenging the top four. Well Done David. Very much deserved, Everton legend for Years to come. Lets hope you can win the trophy on Saturday. Good Luck.

Amit BalagganCouple of years back when I told my friends in India to watch out for everton, most of them had not heard the name of club leave alone believe me. Not many people outside england had heard of the club. So much has changed since then, fans of other clubs also have nothing but good to say about the club and all the credit goes to Moyes, Bill and the entire squad who have given there best day in and day out. Next year we will play Champions league

Michael EdwardsBest manager in the world by far. Show me a man who has consistently done so much with so little in any league in the world. Living legend! My only concern is that if we don't get some major financial backing he will become the next Man Utd manager on order to fulfill his dreams.

Mohamed HumaiziYou fully deserved it Boss! First manager to win the award 3 times. What can I say, you are simply amazing. Who would have thought we could secure 5th with limited budgets and a stuttering start to the season? Only DM can do it!

Cathy CondronA well deserved award for DM this season. The man has done tremendously well and lets not forget the players too! With little money "he" & "we" have proved that you can get the best out of players who didnt necessarily cost mega, mega-bucks! The players have worked so hard and given back to the fantastic support they have, week in week out at Goodison and to the sell-out crowds for away games too. So i would like to think that this award also goes to not just David Moyes, but is a reflection on the players and the fans who support this wonderful club! Obvioulsy David Moyes has made this season happen but we have all contributed to him getting this award. So we can all applaud each other for this! Hip-hip hooray! C O U B at Wembley!

Giles EdwardsGreat to see DM once again recognised for his outstanding achievements. Whatever happens this Saturday (and I really feel we will win) he has got so much quality from so few resources he deserves the recognition shown by his counterparts. Thank you for what you have done at Everton FC,David! Long may you reign.

Thom LesterCongratulations David. This awards can usually go to the obvious choice ie the manager of the Premier League Champions or perhaps somebody who has done wonders with little funds, such as yourself in the past or Roy Hodgson this season. However this year's achievements of managing with limited funds against all adversity has raised awareness of your talents across the entire spectrum of football fans, sports writers and your own fellow professionals. But the story doesn't end there does it? The added touch of class was to continue the campaign with quiet dignity, without the complaints, the excuses or the outbursts. Just stoicism, command and the ability to man manage your resources into a unified force to be reckoned with. You deserve not only this LMA award but the gratitude of all Evertonians for a relentless improvement of our position within English football during the past 7 years.
