Everton boss Moyes: Best moments still to come

Everton boss Dave Moyes has been reflecting on his best moments in six years at Goodison Park.

Ahead of their massive derby clash with Liverpool this weekend, Moyes said that among his favourite moments at Everton was the season they qualified for the Champions League by beating Manchester United in the run-in thanks to a Duncan Ferguson header.

He continued: "Then there was Wayne Rooney's goal when we beat Arsenal, and then beating Liverpool in the derby when AJ (Andrew Johnson) scored.

"The best moments are still to come though, that is how I always look at it. That is my look on life.

"I really hope that is true at Everton. I'm looking, I suppose, for perfection.

"I am always told that I am very intense, but when I was a young player and growing up I used to look at Alex Ferguson at Aberdeen.

"Intensity comes with the job because I am determined to succeed. I am doing everything I can to succeed here and I work hard and I am very determined."

Moyes, who will have close-season talks on a new contract, added: "I look upon Sir Alex, I suppose, as a role model, but mainly I look at him and wonder 'how can you have stayed in this job so long'.

"I am struggling and fighting to win, win, and win. And he (Sir Alex) just shells them out every season, that's why I admire him.

"But I also admire Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho. I could go on and on about them. I see these managers as successful and continue to be a success.

"For me it is getting to the Champions League. We had one taste of it, and that wetted my appetite. That is why it would be great to do it this season."
