Bilic…Collins…Carroll so chuffed

bilicSlaven Bilic reckons the Irons gave him and the fans everything that could possibly be asked for in the win over Liverpool as the team completed an historic double over the Reds .

It was the first time since 1964 we have achieved such a moment and Bilic could barely contain his delight after the game.

As the team hit fifth place the manager told BT Sport: “When we have our players back we are a very good side.

“We were dangerous, we scored two goals, created many opportunities and kept a clean sheet – there is nothing more you can ask of the team.

“What was so great is that we did it at home in front of our own fans – the guys played really good. They controlled the game in the right area. It was tremendous.”

And Andy Carroll – who grabbed the second goal of the game and his third of the season added: “I was just delighted to get that goal and should have had a second.

“You can’t to win every game – the fact that it was my former club is neither here of there. You just want to win. We won’t get ahead of ourselves and take it as it comes.”

But James Collins declared: “We are playing with great confidence. We had a couple of dodgy results early on but we have been keeping clean sheets and now winning games again.

“West Ham has the feeling of a club on the way to European competition and I’m delighted to have got a new deal. Everyone knows I love the club and I’m so pleased for myself and the family.”

  1. Carrol Collins Noble Antonio Cresswell and Tomkins all immense today. The flair players are great. They add the icing on the cake but it’s the hardworking British backbone that Won the game today.

  2. I agree totally, you need that balance. Lots of positives, hope Lanzini will be back soon. I think he is class. I also think Valencia is something else, I just cant wait to see him team up with Sakho and Payet. Great to see Obiang get more game time. Song we need you back to your best soon.

  3. Stella performances from everyone,i was a 3 year old the last time we did the double over liverpool.Antonios goal,awsome work rate-ginger pele-diamond defender-payet twinkle toes dances like a butterfly-noble,right place right time clearance-carrol,the comeback king strikes again-Billic,tactics,selection spot on,plan B not required this time and we won by playing the west ham way.

  4. How Lucky we are to have a cool headed great leader in Slav and not a over emotional erratic German who is fast joining the manages who blame their players the officials and everything but do nothing to change the problems
    Rodgers left in came Klopp who has done nothing,
    Hippo left in came cool hand Slav and his gang and we become the club I love again
    Bring on 2016 and the next record are you watching Wenger what’s going to be your excuse
    What’s the score going to be Keown your next

  5. got a feeling of great confidence . Like i said earlier we have weathered the storm COYI X
