David Moyes: I've got no time for any nonsense players

David Moyes: I've got no time for any nonsense players

After getting all of his squad back following the global break, Moyes got to work laying down the law as he talked about how there will be no favours.

"He has to be a team player, and the clips I have seen at times he's not looked a team player".

That same message was relayed to the group at Rush Green ahead of their trip to Vicarage Road on Sunday.

"I can't comment on the earlier games, I can only go on what people tell me and they tell me that they didn't think he's come up to the standard which he'd set when he was at Stoke City", Moyes said.

'That's the sort of responsibility.

But he was in bullish form, saying: "I've not got any time for any nonsense". I hope we can pull that together.

Murray, Lendl Split Up Again
But Murray is focused on a return in the New Year and released a statement on his website announcing the split. But Murray will now be without the 57-year-old in the coming season.

Winston Reid, however, is likely to feature at the heart of the Hammers' defence on Sunday despite suffering a knock whilst representing New Zealand in their World Cup play-offs with Peru, as is West Ham forward Diafra Sakho.

As he prepares to take charge of his 500th Premier League match, Moyes believes he is now a better manager following his experiences with Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland. I don't know any manager who doesn't want players like that. "If you look at managers in the Premier League, most have managed 10-12 clubs". At United you have to win all the games and I totally accept that.

The Scot continued and said that he has "laid it bare" to the players who he found to be "responsive and willing to take responsibility". We do the job. But I'm only going to get results if they give me a chance to.

'Both of those choices were the right choices. But if you want to judge me on the grass, I will challenge most of the time. Not quite, but they weren't disastrous by a long way.

"I told him on Friday, "You'll play in the team if you make goals and score goals, but if you don't run for the team, then you don't play". I've got to try and get my players to over-achieve.
