Moyes wants to go all the way in the cup

07 January 2011 04:30
Everton manager David Moyes has promised not to hold anything back in the FA Cup this season. Moyes believes winning the competition is a realistic objective for his side and will not be replicating the approach of other teams and resting players. Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has made clear he intends to make wholesale changes for his side's third-round tie as he prioritises his next Barclays Premier League game. Other top-flight managers are likely to follow suit to varying degrees but Moyes insists he will not be one of them. The Scot led Everton to the FA Cup final in 2009 and wants to go one better to bring silverware back to Goodison Park for the first time since 1995. Moyes said: "Ian Holloway is entitled to play whoever he wants. Whether the purists like to hear it or not, the Premier League is too important because of the financial importance. For the overall future of the club, if you want to keep signing big players you have to stay in the Premier League. That's why a lot of managers have to keep their best players for the games that really matter. "The money we earned from reaching the FA Cup final was minimal. But the prestige and the chance to win the competition is something we are desperate for. From our point of view I will put out as good as we have got. I have done that in just about every competition and I don't see myself altering. If you are at a club like Everton all cup competitions are a bonus and the longer we stay in them the better."
