Robert Snodgrass has turned his West Ham United career around and has set a bold new target for the club.
Snoddy, as he is affectionately known by fans, feels West Ham can compete with the likes of Manchester United and Everton higher up the league.
Snodgrass has become the most unlikely of cult heroes at West Ham this season.

Watch out Man United, star sets bold new target
Brimming with renewed confidence, Snodgrass has set West Ham a bold new target for the rest of the season.
Speaking to the club’s official website he has a clear ambition.
“I have just tried to do my best and do my job for the team the best I can and if I’m getting assists and goals that’s great but it’s about points,” Snodgrass told whufc.com.
“The fans need to see the work we are doing behind the scenes because we are working hard, the manager works us really hard so it’s great for him to start seeing the rewards as well and all that hard work leading to three points.
‘Driving forward to mix it with big boys’
“We have a great squad here. I don’t want to get too carried away but it feels good to get back-to-back wins. We are driving forward to try and get in the top half of that table and try and mix it with the big boys.”
West Ham are just three points off seventh place going into Saturday’s game at Fulham.
There is a big gap between the top five and the rest of the league. And West Ham have already proved they can compete to be the best of the rest come what May.
The Hammers have already beaten both Manchester United and Everton 3-1 this season.
If West Ham show some consistency for the rest of the campaign there is no reason they can’t finish above one or both of those clubs.
Do that and they will surely qualify for the Europa League.
