David Moyes: a fighty stare that is harder than any man’s fist
Okay, here we go again, this time in the shoes of Moyesy. Remembering that this is just a harmless bit of fun, I want you to pick Everton’s best starting XI for the coming season.
I’ll go first.
The formation: Moyes loves a nice drop of liquid 4-1-4-1, and who am I to disagree with that stare… okay, I am going to change it slightly, and go for a more attacking 4-4-1-1 formation.
Seamus Coleman – Phil Jagielka – Sylvain Distin – Leighton Baines
Mikel Arteta – Jack Rodwell – Marouane Fellaini – Steven Pienaar

I can’t tell you how tough it was to come up with a satisfactory XI for Everton, especially in midfield, where they have so much talent. Even now I can’t find room for the likes of club captain Phil Neville (I like Coleman a lot at RB), John Heitinga, Joseph Yobo, Diniyar Bilyaletdinov, Leon Osman and Victor Anichebe.
Without P-Nev in the team, I’d give the armband to Cahill, who is a natural leader.
I’ve shown you mine. Now you show me yours…
