Everton skipper Phil Neville is convinced they can use their FA Cup final defeat as a launching pad for competing regularly for trophies.
He said: "I agree with the boss (David Moyes) who said it is only a matter of time before start winning trophies, I do feel that too.
"We are heading in the right direction. We have our top players all tied on long-term contracts and we all feel we can achieve something together.
"We have to come back for pre-season after a summer break determined to go again, to make sure we do better than this, but it has been nothing short of a miracle season."
