At the start of the year we were making

It might explain why Moyes was so unusually animated on the touchline at the Stadium of Light as Everton took Martin ONeills side apart. It meant so much to me and the players,  he said.  We have had better performances, actually. I made the decision to rest players because I felt we had to try to get to the semi-final. I didnt know who we were going to get, but the Cup was really important to me and I felt we had to do it. This match might let Everton escape the shadow of Liverpool that has hung over them pretty much since the last time they met at Wembley, the 1989 FA Cup final Fifa 16 XBOX One Coins .

Nevertheless, Moyes is sanguine about what one game can achieve. Three years ago, Everton beat Manchester United in an FA Cup semi-final and lost narrowly to Chelsea in the final. I thought that would have drawn people back in, brought Everton back into fashion, but nothing came from that day,  he said.  But if your profile is high and you get plenty of media coverage, it can only help your club. I have always been keen to take Everton back to the days when they were a great football club, something like they were in the 1980s. I keep changing. One year we think we are getting close, the next we drop away.

At the start of the year we were making little progress, if anything we were fading away. I dont think the semi-final does decide if we are successful this season. I thought at the start that if we finished in the top 10, it would be a good year. We still have to maintain that position but I dont think [today] decides if its a success now. Its the difference between a good season and a great season.
