28 March 2010 10:59
The demands are unrelenting. To become better at every element ofthe job. To bring more from others. And those are just the demandsDavid Moyes puts on himself.

'I think the manager always looks at himself first before he looks at his players,' he said.

'I look at all the areas every week: Can I become a better coach?Can I become a better man-manager? Can I become a better motivator? CanI keep on instilling the belief I want the players to have on thefield? Can I keep good discipline?'

Not that he is satisfied just yet. Four months ago, whenback-to-back defeats to Hull and Liverpool left Everton just outsidethe relegation zone, Moyes vowed to do more.

He added: 'I think it's got better but I've got a lot to do yet sohopefully I'm going to keep learning and get better every game.'

Everton's excellent run continued at Molineux where only acombination of the woodwork (which was rattled by Louis Saha), defiantdefending (with Jody Craddock clearing off his own line) and two superbsaves from Marcus Hahnemann denied them.

Hahnemann kept out Leon Osman at the start and Dan Gosling in the last minute when he came out to take both man and ball.
