Venables says Moyes has become synonymous with Goodison Park and that the Blues are still making tangible progress under his stewardship.
"As an outsider looking in it appears everything is going well. I know Steve Round is an excellent coach and, of course, they have good players. I think David has done some great shopping, made some good buys and they have a spirit which is second to none. They seem to really love working together, which is something I heard Tim Cahill mention a while ago and I totally agree with him. Team spirit is so important."
