Moyes grateful to Jamie

David Moyes says he is grateful to Jamie Carragher for finally saying something positive about him.
The pair have always been rivals via their time at Liverpool and Everton but Carragher the boss has done a remarkable job at West Ham.
And speaking recently he declared that Moysie was now on the brink of achieving his greatest feat as a manager.

Speaking to reporters on Friday the West Ham manager said “That is very kind of Jamie Carragher that he’s said something positive – we’ve been rivals for many years.

I have to say I always admired Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher because I always thought they were the heartbeat of Liverpool.

Every time I went to play them, it was if they were driving the team on and being leaders at the club. They were really good players.

Would it be my biggest achievement? I think it would if we got the Champions League but I think the Champions League is probably just a stretch at this moment in time, not to say we can’t do it.

I even think European football would be great. I was at Everton for 11 years and only managed the Champions League once. So I would say that any form of European football for West Ham, if you’d said that at the start of the season you would have all started laughing.

I think now you’ll be a bit like me, if we don’t make it you’ll be a bit disappointed that we didn’t get there. We’ve done well but it’s not well enough yet for me, I am banging the drum behind the scenes for us to win these last three games. “

Claret and Hugh say: A lot of pundits have had to eat their words and swallow their pride, many wrote David Moyes off and suggested his return to West Ham was a mistake. He has proved a lot of people wrong and long may it continue! And fair play to Carra. Many don’t particularly like the guy but this time he has got it spot on and well played to him for coming out and saying ehat he did.

One comment on “Moyes grateful to Jamie

  1. Carragher, Savage, Ferdinand, Jenas and all the rest of the gang on the punditry gravy train would last about 10 minutes if they found themselves in charge of a professional football club. Neville and Shearer have both got big mouths, which frequently spout nonsense when given the opportunity to do so in TV studios, and have given it a go and failed spectacularly. It takes a special set of skills to manage a football team. Moyes has got them. Of all the managers we’ve had since 1989, only Curbs, Harry and BFS have the required set of skills.

    Each time he opens his trap to criticise managers, I always think that a look back at Shearer’s disastrous spell in charge of Newcastle would make a great MOTD Special!
