Interesting quotes emanating from the East End today, if you find unchecked flattery from an opposing manager interesting, of course.
The West Ham gaffer told the press:
“For me, they are the team that plays the most attractive football. They are definitely one of the contenders to win the league. They have energy, they have patterns, they have individual quality, they have got pace and they have got the team that they are building up for three years now.
“They are improving as a team and as a squad with new players – mostly young ones – and that for me, personally, makes them the best team, or the most attractive one definitely.”
It would be foolish of Slaven Bilic to take pot shots at a Spurs side that hasn’t shown much vulnerability away from home this season having beaten Newcastle 0-2 and Everton 0-3 so far.
West Ham have had a diabolical start to their season conceding 10 goals in 5 games.
By stark contrast, Tottenham have conceded just 3 times in as many matches.
