Irons told they have better players than Arsenal!

Tim Sherwood would hardly be anybody’s first stop when attempting to get a considered view of West Ham’s summer and their chances this season.

But the former diehard Spurs midfielder – whilst perhaps wanting to take a pop at his former north London rivals Arsenal – has given it large in terms of the boys in claret and blue this time around.

He spent four years at White Hart Lane as a player and another season as a manager but his words can’t help but bring a smile to our faces as we start life under Manuel Pellegrini.

Speaking on Sky Sports he said: “West Ham have had an amazing window. I can really see them pushing their way up. On paper, and I know nothing is wow on paper, Arsenal have more firepower but over the rest of the pitch I think West Ham probably have the better players.”

  1. I would love to have Aubameyang for sure and Cech, even though it is definitely a case of Sherwood stirring the pot for some soundbites, if at the end of the season or next season people are comparing us to Arsenal I think we will have reached the next level, Arsenal have been there for the entire PL era and pretty much thereabouts since Michael Thomas scored that goal against Liverpool, lets hope we see one of our players doing a head over heels as we go 2 – 0 and win against Liverpool this weekend COYI !!!

  2. I love this made me chuckle , but wouldn’t it be nice to be up there withArsenal challenging . I wish Pelligrini and all the players the best of luck , love to see us do well. COYI . Ps well done to the board for backing Pelligrini ⚒
