Sinclair On Start

Trevor Sinclair says he is enjoying life enormously under the new regime - even though the Hammers have picked up only one point from two games.

"I think the gaffer has got us organised - in the past we have played Leeds and Liverpool and we have been beaten four or five nil," he says.

"And that's been because we didn't have the discipline or the organisation.

"But Glenn has brought that in, working on the training ground, and got us organised.

"He has made us determined and given us a good team spirit and we are all working in the right direction.

"It is a lot harder for teams to come and break us down - and I think that showed against Liverpool and again against Leeds.

"We want to turn Upton Park into a fortress again and that started with the Leeds game.

"Unfortunately we didn't score but I think it was an all round decent display.

"We are off the mark and we can build on that.

"All the lads are working at 100% and you can't ask for much more than that - hopefully better times are ahead."

"Credit to all the boys; everyone looks fit."

He has no qualms, either, about the new look ground, and adds:

"I didn't find any problem with the atmosphere, and obviously when it is finished off it will be even better.

"You can still hear a lot of noise from the upper tier."

He does, however, feel West Ham might have nicked a win against Leeds, and, referring to the disallowed 'goal' when Toddy was adjudged to have fouled Nigel Martyn, he says:

"Everytime you make a challenge on the goalkeeper the referee seems to blow up but I couldn't criticise the referee; I thought he did well and it was a good game of football."
