David Moyes has claimed that his current West Ham team are well on the way to becoming even better than the group of players he had at Everton at the end of his Goodison Park reign.
Moyes has worked miracles since taking over as Hammers boss for the second time back in December 2019.
The Scot has proved a lot of West Ham fans wrong, me included, and long may it continue!
The Hammers boss enjoyed a wonderfully successful 10-and-a-half year spell in charge of Everton.
During that time, he guided his Toffees side to eight top-seven finishes including a fourth, two fifths and two sixths.
It would be great if West Ham could emulate that kind of consistency. And there is every chance that we can.
David Moyes makes exciting West Ham and Everton comparison
The Scot was talking to WHUFC.com about the current crop of players he has at his disposal at the London Stadium.
And Moyes made a very interesting comparison with the squad he built at Everton:
“This is as good as I’ve had. This is right up there. By the time I reached year ten at Everton, I had real quality players, international players, and a balance with a team who understood me. But in year two at Everton, I didn’t have the same quality of player as I have now at West Ham.”
Those comments from Moyes really are encouraging. They also offer some kind of explanation as to how the Scot goes about his business.
He has a long-term plan at West Ham.
Sometimes as fans we want loads and loads of players signed every transfer window. That’s not how Moyes works though.
He slowly adds to what he has whilst keeping his best and most important players at the club.
We really could be a very, very strong side in a few years. In fairness, we already are.
And here’s to Moysie carrying on the good work he has already done at West Ham.
