David Moyes expecting better from Real Sociedad despite first win

David Moyes secured his first win as Real Sociedad manager against Elche.

New Real Sociedad coach David Moyes said he was pleased with the result but not the performance after his side beat Elche 3-0 in his first home La Liga game with the club.

La Real attacker Carlos Vela was the match-winner with three well-taken goals at important moments during the game and, although Elche dominated possession at times, the final whistle brought a second clean sheet in two games in charge for the new Txuri-urdin chief.

The former Everton and Manchester United boss said in the Anoeta...

Three Points: Real Sociedad vs. Elche

Carlos Vela showed his class as David Moyes' home debut ended in a comprehensive win.

SAN SEBASTIAN, Spain -- Three things from Real Sociedad's 3-0 win over Elche as Carlos Vela scored a hat trick in David Moyes' first home La Liga game in charge of the San Sebastian club.

Carlos Vela struck three times for Real Sociedad against Elche.

David Moyes enjoyed a dream home debut in charge of Real Sociedad as a Carlos Vela hat trick downed Elche 3-0 at Anoeta.

The Mexican headed the Basques in front with less than three minutes gone and then doubled the lead after half an hour, later clinching the match ball early in the second half.

Even though Elche began the game in the relegation zone, Moyes will be feeling pleased with his side after recording their biggest win of the season to move onto 13 points from as many games.

David Moyes wants 'exciting' football from Sociedad in first home game

ESPN FC's La Liga correspondent Sid Lowe believes David Moyes can transform Real Sociedad back into a more aggressive and intense side and possibly sneak into the top eight if results fall their way.

David Moyes says he wants to see his new Real Sociedad team play "exciting, fast, dynamic" football as he prepares for his first home game in charge against Elche on Friday, while the club have announced the appointment of former Blackburn player Billy McKinlay as the Scot's assistant.

Jon Ansotegi: David Moyes already making impact at Real Sociedad

ESPN FC's La Liga correspondent Sid Lowe believes David Moyes can transform Real Sociedad back into a more aggressive and intense side and possibly sneak into the top eight if results fall their way.

Real Sociedad's Jon Ansotegi says a solid defensive performance in this weekend's goalless La Liga draw at Deportivo la Coruna is evidence that David Moyes is already having a positive influence on his new club.

Moyes' debut as La Real coach was a lacklustre affair played out in grim weather conditions late on Saturday night, but his team did emerge with a point after keeping what was a first clean sheet of the season.

Long-serving backup Ansotegi -- who captained the team at Riazor after coming...
