West Ham manager David Moyes sends warning to the 'Big Six'
David Moyes has warned the Premier League’s ‘Big Six’ that his West Ham side are coming for them.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference [via the Daily Mail] before the Irons take on Tottenham Hotspur, the Scotsman revealed his thoughts on where his side are at and where he would like them to get to.
Ahead of the match on Sunday, the Irons sit in seventh place and are just outside of the top six on goal difference despite also playing in the Europa League.
Moyes said: “We’ve got a bit to go yet before we should get all the plaudits and recognition.
“We’ve had one season at it. I need to try and get consistency at West Ham; I’d like to try and qualify for European football again.
“There is a task because there are so many good teams in the Premier League at the moment, and Tottenham are one of them.”
Moyes is still ambitious.
This is great stuff to hear from Moyes, and it is clear that the Scotsman has huge ambitions for the Irons.
Given the financial strength of some of the other clubs in the league, if he could turn West Ham into a consistent top-six team, then that could be the best job he has ever done.
Certainly, he says all the right things and given the way his team play, they are clearly buying into his ethos and the way that he wants his side to go and attack games.
The fact they are currently competing on three fronts and doing well in all of them deserves huge praise, and we can’t wait to see how far the Irons can go this season.
Certainly, you would think that a trophy isn’t beyond the realms of possibility and every player who comes into the side seems to perform.
The London Stadium is a happy place at the moment, and long may it continue.
