"I could do all that, but I think now it's time to stop talking like that and start talking about what's coming next".
West Ham's new manager, who has been tasked with pulling his team out of the bottom three after replacing Slaven Bilic on an initial six-month deal, has made it clear to the left-sided forward that he did not work hard enough under the previous management. David Moyes has arrived mob-handed.
It did not go well. The only way I am going to get results is if those players give me the chance to get them.
The young Hammers were without injured winger Nathan Holland, but the scale of the defeat was still a big surprise.
Unfortunately for the young Spaniard he failed to capture some of this momentum, and his goalless show has given Moyes reason to suggest he is still not ready.
In fact, the omens are good for Moyes this weekend, as he has never lost any of his landmark games on his way to 500; winning the first, 200th, 300th and 400th, and marking his century with a draw. If anybody says they can't get back from worldwide duty, well, don't think you will be coming in and playing Saturday. But within that they have to take their own responsibility on and off the field. "I am certainly not pussyfooting around with them". "I still remember the team coach trying to get down the streets near Upton Park", he told the London Evening Standard. The surface we're training on at the moment is very good.
David Moyes has warned West Ham's record signing Marko Arnautovic to start pulling his weight for the team. If you want to judge me on the grass, I'll challenge most.
"I could talk about the old days or I could talk about the future", Moyes said on Friday.
Earlier this season West Ham players were revealed to have made the fewest sprints and run the fewest miles of any Premier League team. I was nervous on my first day at Everton and I'll be really nervous here as well.
