Moyes Wary Of MLS Progress

Moyes Wary Of MLS Progress

David Moyes is wary of the ever-improving standard of the MLS.

The cream of America's players will line-up against Everton on Wednesday for the All-Star game.

And Moyes, who has brought his squad to the United States for the fourth summer in a row, says he's seeing a definite improvement in quality.

"It will be a tough game to face the select players from the entire league," said the manager.

"I think the MLS has improved greatly over the years. It gets better every year and many of the clubs have their own stadia which makes a big difference."

Moyes said he sympathised with opposite number Dominic Kinnear, who has the job of gelling players from all over the country in a very short time.

Nevertheless, the Scot is urging his own squad to show their pedigree and begin a run of winning form that will continue towards the new Premier League season.

"Pulling people in who you haven't worked with will be difficult but in the mast the MLS All-Star teams have had a very good record so they seem to know how to work it," said Moyes.

"Every player in our side is a present international, a former international or they are on their way to becoming an international.

"Football is always about winning, it breeds confidence and gives you confidence to continue. We finished last season really well and we want to keep that going.

Stewart LoweI have seen the interview with Moyes, Neville and Howard and for me if im honest, they really dont look happy at all. For a team who is delighted to be in the US and has been treated to great hospitality, when interviewed they look very unhappy. I think its evident from their body language and when asked about progress, you can tell that they look cheesed off that they have not made any additions to the squad. If the so called lesser teams of birmingham, Fulham, Sunderland have spent big so far this season, why hasnt an Everton who attributed the most premiership money behind the big 4? Add the fact that they reached an FA cup final and also a 32m contract from shirt manufacturers and you can see when not spending a bean this summer is rattling many Evertonians.
