Moyes Feeling Pressure after Derby Defeatby Sean Raymond / 30 November 2009, 10:07Tweet
David Moyes is starting to feel the heat at Goodison Park following the Derby to defeat to Liverpool on Sunday as the Toffees terrible week ended with another loss despite a better performance, Moyes who is the third longest serving Manager in the Premier League behind Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger looks like a man under pressure as he tries to take Everton to the next level. Moyes has worked wonders at Everton since taking over in 2002 leading The Toffees to top six finishes in several seasons but the wheels do appear to be coming off so far this term, the Scot was fuming following the teams performance at Hull last week and that coupled with the 2-0 loss to rivals Liverpool has left them in 16th place and facing a relegation battle in the face.
All of this follows the governments decision to reject the clubs attempts to try an build a new stadium in nearby Kirby which looks to be a big blow for the club and in particular Moyes who is trying to take the club to the next level, it does appear though that he is fighting a losing battle and the Sack Race believes he has achieved all he can at Goodison Park. Moyes is bound to be frustrated by the clubs struggle to build a new stadium and that coupled with the fact that he is unlikely to get a top four job means his career appears to be stuttering despite building a fantastic reputation during his time at Everton.
Paddy Powerhave slashed the odds on David Moyes to be the Next Premier League Manager to be Sacked following the on and off field troubles and the Scot is now as short as 7/1 to be the next out of the door in the Sack Race, we believe that Bill Kenwright is unlikely to sack David Moyes has they have a great relationship and Moyes has achieved enough to warrant plenty of time to turn things around. The team have been struck by injury and Moyes will be desperate to get the likes of Phil Neville, Phil Jagielka and Mikel Arteta back in the squad asap, these are the sort of quality players that would help any team and should be able to lead them away from the relegation zone.
