The Toffees are still bitter about the way Moyes allowed his contract to expire before being lined up as Sir Alex Ferguson’s replacement.

The beginning of the David Moyes era was the dominant storyline for Manchester United today. Well, that and the Wayne Rooney saga. (The fact that Rooney didn’t enter the game until well into the second half, and didn’t celebrate with his team on their third goal only made people talk more about the disgruntled stryker).
However, Moyes taking over after the reign of Sir Alex Ferguson...
