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 evertonfc.com: "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."
