'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Post Everton: Moyles on Nolan

Speaking to Sky Sports after today`s 0-0 draw with ourselves, David Moyes cleared Kevin Nolan of any malicious intent in his challenge on Victor Anichebe, that led to the Nigerian`s substitution and Nolan`s sending off. Moyes said:

"It was undoubtedly a sending off and undoubtedly a bad tackle and we've certainly got a sore boy in Victor Anichebe but I've not known Kevin Nolan to be that type of player. Whether he mistimed it and ended up with his two feet in or whether he got there late, it was a bad tackle.

We always accept apologies. That's football. I would like to think no footballer would actually go out to harm anyone else. I've been there before and played myself and don't think players do that. But you have to hold your hand up and say it was a bad tackle. You can't do anything else."

Moyes was just being polite. It was a shocking, disgrace of a tackle.
