Peers' praise for Moyes

great deal of respect for David Moyes."

Steve Bruce, Hull City manager: "He's cut from the same cloth [as Sir Alex]. It wouldn't surprise me if he got the job and I'm sure he would be very successful. He's not had huge finances but he has still managed to put an Everton team together that comfortably finishes in the top 10."

Everton colleagues

Tim Howard: "David Moyes has a real good recipe for success. He doesn't just bring in every good player available. He brings in guys who can play two positions who will also buy into [the club's ethos]. And then he guides them along. He's an incredible motivator. And he gets better at it every year."

Phil Neville: “His method is to push you to your limits in training and then the match is easy. He has developed as a manager too because he has looked at things differently. He’s gone from a British-based, solid team to a more foreign-based one with more flair. The DNA of a David Moyes team is clear: hard work, spirit, togetherness and fight."

Steven Pienaar, Everton midfielder: “He is one of the best, if not the best manager in the Premier League. It shows in the way we are playing.”

Former players

Gary Lineker, former Everton striker: “I think David Moyes will be an excellent appointment for Manchester United, but an awful one for Everton! He is hugely respected within the game and he will instantly get the respect of the players.”

Mark Lawrenson, former Liverpool player: "I think Ferguson sees a quite a bit of himself in Moyes.
