It would be wrong to say that David Moyes is not a good manager. In short, he is. He took over as Everton manager on March 14 2002.

During his Everton reign, he has bolstered the squad adding quality players all over the pitch. He has led Everton to not only a mid table side, avoiding the ever present fear of relegation, that existed when he arrived, to a side that are challenging in the top six of the Premier League table. 

For the first part of this season, Everton had a fine run of form. Week after week they heaped masses of pressure onto the teams around them. Most notably Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal. At the Christmas break 2012 in fact, Everton lay in 4th place, level on points with both Arsenal in 3rd and Tottenham in 5th.

Why can they not maintain it?

As it stands today Everton are in 7th place in the Premier League, level on points with Liverpool in 6th. Everton seem to have 'run out of steam'. 

As well as their drop down in league position, Everton this weekend, went crashing out of the FA cup in a shock 0-3 defeat by Wigan Athletic in the Quarter Finals. 

This means that David Moyes search for his first trophy with Everton continues. During his time as manager they have had some good cup runs, their most successful was getting to the 2009 FA cup final, which they lost 2-1 to Chelsea. Everton's last cup victory was the 1995 FA cup, which they won 1-0 against Manchester United at Wembley. 

Will David Moyes have the money to spend on bringing new players in during the summer of 2013? In order to progress with the club, this is a necessity.
