Moyes Fumes At Shola Goal

Everton boss David Moyes was left fuming when Newcastle opened the scoring with a goal that he believes was a 'joke'.

Shola Ameobi was clearly offside when he fired the home side into a 14th-minute lead, although referee Steve Bennett awarded the goal after his assistant failed to raise his flag.

Moyes: 'I really am trying this year not to mention referees or linesman. We do try to run out for offside. Ameobi is the last man, the ball goes directly to Ameobi and he scores, so you cannot even turn around and say there was a mix-up.

'There was one of our players a little bit late, but not as late as Ameobi, and he is the one who scored. What do I do? Do I just stand back and say, 'Yes, that is fine'?

'I am passionate about winning for Everton and my job is to make sure we do it. We got a bad decision there. I actually thought the referee had a good game today, but I did not think both the assistants had a good game.

'We came here and made enough opportunities to score some goals, but I have got to say, Newcastle made some opportunities as well. At the end, it was end-to-end. Somebody would get an attack and then the other team got a chance to attack. It was quite open. It was like a training game in the end.'

I have a lot of time for David Moyes, but he's big enough and experienced enough to know that these things happen in football. Where I sit I was right behind the linesman - the Everton defence moved out quickly as a line and actually they left 3 or 4 United players behind. But it all happened so quickly I'm not surprised the linesman didnt raise his flag - it was Everton who moved........difficult to judge in the time a linesman has to make up his mind
