Everton FC fans letters: Blues are a match for any top team

DAVID MOYES said "on our day we are a match for any team.' A tremendous result against Manchester United.[LNB]A thoroughly deserved victory due to exceptional work rate and specifically, movement of the ball in the attacking third.[LNB]Without Cahill the Blues were more fluent as an attacking force, with the ball being moved quickly, culminating in Saha having his best game in an Everton shirt.[LNB]Equally, Donovan has proved to be an astute signing, exhibiting his versatility by playing left and at a pivotal moment of the game in a central position, confirming his international calibre.[LNB]It is a shame the Blues cannot keep him longer.[LNB]Osman and Pienaar looked so assured in a central role and it was a sublime finish from Bilyaletdinov. The best will come from him next season.[LNB]Importantly, my men of the match were Heitinga and Distin who were colossal at the back resulting in Rooney having an ineffectual game.[LNB]Everton are in touching distance of a top six place and to have a realistic chance of Europe need to beat the teams above and sustain this form to the end of the season.[LNB]Fundamentally, for certain away games I would like to see Neville in the centre of midfield for his combative qualities, with Heitinga at right-back with Sendoros/Yobo alongside Distin.[LNB]David, Aintree
