Iron goes back to the future

Hammers boss David Moyes insists that Nikola Vlasic is a far better player than he was when he was at Everton, and believes he has matured.

Moyes shrugs off “best of the rest” tag

David Moyes has refused to compare West Ham to Everton in the best of the rest category within the Premier League.
The clubs could be seen as battling for the best of the rest title this year biut Mooyesie is having none of that as he sees the Hammers very much as a top four club.
Asked by reporters on Friday whether he would include Everton and West Ham in that list he responded:
 “I can’t speak because I’m the manager of West Ham and my plan is to challenge the top four. I’m hoping I can challenge the top four and maybe catch one, maybe topple one. That’s what I want to do. That’s what I’ve let the players know in terms of where I’m aiming.”

“I can only speak for Everton as an ex-manager. I can’t speak for Rafa. But Everton is a big club, with big traditions and they’ve challenged the top four, certainly in my time there. There was a constant challenge.  It was really difficult to break in, but we did it on one occasion. So I think Rafa might be thinking the exact same as I did at the time, he may be thinking even more. 

That was the Irons week that was!

In terms of an international break week when – let’s be rampantly honest – every day was a slow day, one story dominated that Irons week that was.
