Everton: Moyes: We can keep going

The difference between Everton and Chelsea - apart from one billionaire owner - is just one solitary point at the moment.

Everton are unashamedly basking in third place in the Barclays Premiership, a position they can hardly believe possible with a quarter of the season already gone.

Surely it cannot go on like this, the critics insist, but Everton's manager of the month boss David Moyes is having none of it.

His side racked up their fourth 1-0 win of the campaign thanks to Leon Osman's late goal at home to Southampton and Moyes has urged his players to savour their success.

"It's great that we have expectations here now, because nobody expected anything so let's get a bit giddy, a bit high," he said.

"Everybody should enjoy it. We are up there on merit and moving forward."

Like Chelsea, they could soon have some Russian money of their own, coming via the complicated route of the Dubai-based Fortress Sports Fund in a few weeks, but it will be more like 20million than the 200million-plus Roman Abramovich has spent on Chelsea.

For now, though, Everton are happy to demonstrate that you can still challenge the mighty by spending buttons and being organised, brave, confident and committed.

it goes to show that you can build good teams without having the largest sums of money being available. i think moyes is a good manager, he had a good track record with preston and last time i checked, craig brown hasnt maintained the standars moyes set.

although, i dont think everton will stay in the top 8 by the time the season ends

They was one of the teams everyone fancied going down, esp after selling Rooney. The way some of these other sides are playing, they have a good chance to get a high position.
