Moyes: Fans make Everton what it is

Dave Moyes has paid tribute to Everton fans after Wednesday night's superb victory over Zenit St Petersburg.

He told "I think we are getting better, stronger and getting noticed as a Club - and a big factor in that is the fanbase.

"We were in the hotel before the game in Nuremberg and I was trying to conduct my pre-match team talk but you could barely hear yourself speak because of the level of noise coming from the fans on the street. We went through the tactics and then I said 'do you want to hear more from me, or do you want to listen to the people out there'.

"That was a great moment and showed what a big Club this is. You fans are so important and if you go away it is not as big a Club. So keep coming in your droves and if you do that it makes my job easier and the players have no excuses if they are playing in front of a full house every week."
