Manchester United manager David Moyes has stated he expects to receive a mixed reception from the travelling Everton faithful tonight, which is sad considering he was adored by those same supporters at the start of the year.
Yes, football is a fickle old game - but you should surely treat someone who has played a big part in the history of your club with a certain amount of respect.
Moyes, who took over the reins at Goodison Park back in 2002, was a fantastic servant to the north-west club.
The 50-year-old Scotsman, who was at Everton for 11 years, led his former side to eight top-seven finishes during his spell at the Toffees.
Moyes even managed to help his side seal a spot in the Champions League - despite the fact that they were competing with sides who had the financial muscle to sign which ever player tickled their fancy.
Everton fans should remember it was Moyes who pieced the majority of their current squad together.
He spent wisely by signing the likes of Tim Howard, Phil Jagielka and Tim Cahill for minimal fees, while Everton's rivals were able to spend money like there was no tomorrow.
I am not saying Everton fans should go out their way to to give their former manager an emotional round of applause, but they should avoid jeering the Manchester United chief.
