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

Moyes 'It Was Handball'

In this day and age, with catfights between managers commonplace, it takes a brave man to say that the referee should have given a penalty AGAINST his side. But full marks to David Moyes, who admitted Everton were lucky not to concede a crucial penalty when James McFadden handled almost on the goalline as the Merseysiders claimed a priceless 1-0 win at Goodison Park.

Moyes: 'I have now seen the handball incident and it looked handball. I have seen it on TV because you can't be sure from the dug-out.

'But you can tell from the reaction of players, and all Newcastle's lads went up for it. But what about us last weekend, West Brom's penalty was outside the box and their goalkeeper later picked the ball up outside the area. Either of those decisions going our way would have changed the outcome.

'It was an old-fashioned game of football, some challenges got found out, some didn't. But I felt we deserved the points and I enjoyed the performance of my players.

'I've no comment about the Shearer incident, people can write what they want about that. And I didn't think the incident between Babayaro and Cahill was worth any cards, they were just tussling together.'
