Everton's Wembley heartache at the hands of Chelsea still hurts David Moyes

29 January 2011 01:48
David Moyes reflected on the contrasting emotions of being an FA Cup finalist yesterday and admitted he cannot bring himself to look at his loser's medal.

Memories of being beaten by Chelsea at Wembley two years ago will come flooding back for the Everton manager when he faces Carlo Ancelotti's side for a place in the fifth round at Goodison Park today.

'The medal is in the house somewhere, but I've never bothered with it,' he said. 'I think I gave it to my son. Maybe he's opened it and had a look.

'That's not being disrespectful. It's just that I'd rather have a winner's medal. If we could go back there this season and come away with one, that would be terrific.

'When I think of that day, it reminds you of what the Cup is about. Walking out at Wembley was terrific and there is a level of achievement in reaching the final, but for all that you've got to make sure you win it.

'Getting there is one thing, but the really big part is coming away with the trophy. You don't look back and think, 'How about that season when we got to the Cup final and lost'.

'If we go one better I'll be having a look at the medal, no doubt about that.'
