"The one thing me and Tim (Cahill) haven't done is win anything yet. I think for us to get that name we are going to have to do something about it."

Quotes of the week

The Toffees last won major silverware in 1995 when they defeated Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley.

And although Moyes has significantly improved Everton's league performance since taking the helm in 2002, an FA Cup final defeat to Chelsea is the closest any of his sides have come to winning a competition.

Everton are currently preparing for the upcoming season with a tour of Australia, where midfielder Tim Cahill has been given a warm reception.

But despite the reputation the Australian has built since moving to Everton from Millwall six years ago, Moyes insists that they need to win a trophy for their time at the club to be truly memorable.

"It has been great to come out to Australia - so many Everton supporters, a lot to do with Tim Cahill but a lot to do with the English Premier League," he said.

History

"We have been a decent team in the Premier League for quite a few years now.

"If you know about the history of Everton - Everton have won championships and European competitions.

"The one thing me and Tim haven't done is win anything yet. I think for us to get that name we are going to have to do something about it."

Everton secured a 1-0 victory over Sydney FC in their first match of the tour and will face Melbourne Heart on Wednesday in a contest Cahill is adamant his side will not be taking lightly.

Cahill said: "I didn't want to bring Everton here and have all the kids playing - not to disrespect them but I wanted to have the main players and show respect to the people that are coming to watch the games.

"The manager has been really focused on how hard we train.

"It has been non-stop training. Everyone has been saying can you show the lads the city but I don't think we've got time.

"This is for us to get fit, not to have a good time."
