Ahead of the FA Cup tie with Oldham, David Moyes once again refused to be drawn on the question of his future.
'I've spoken with the chairman and I want to see how the team do, I want to see how we do in the cups and the league and it is more than likely that I won't make a decision until the end of the season.' he told Sky Sports before adding 'You can ask me every week but I will probably give you the same answer.'
The 49-year-old's current contract at Goodison Park expires at the end of the season, it's not the first time we've been in this situation and the relationship between Moyes and Bill Kenwright has always been so that I'd have never questioned whether Moyes would leave Everton.
With this season potentially being the best since he stepped through the door it seems strange then, that now I'm probably the least confident that I've been in regards to Moyes still being manager come the start of next season.
We're in the hat for the quarter finals of the FA Cup and we're well placed in the Premier League to either put on a late assault to qualify for a Champions League place or get back into the Europa League.
The team are playing with flair, with great young players who will only improve the longer they stay at Everton.
But it all feels like its coming to a crossroads.
The likes of Moyes and players like Fellaini and Baines have ambitions to better themselves and that's the Champions League, we're on the brink of making it a reality here, but if it doesn't come this year, will they move on a chase it elsewhere?
Fellaini's been linked to all sorts of clubs, Baines has been linked to Manchester United, if Moyes has to watch another team drift away will he be that inclined to turn down Chelsea if they do come knocking in the summer?
