Christian Calls For No Complaceny

AFTER 11 games and 18 points, Hammers can be satisfied with the strong start they have made in the Premiership.
However, Club Captain Christian Dailly said the team know there's no room for complacency and they must look to build on the progress that has seen them go into ninth place in the league table.

Christian said: "We want to keep the momentum going and there's no reason why we can't. It's an old cliche but we take one game at a time. We are already focussing on our next opponents and then once that match is played, we will concentrate on the next one.
"We've set ourselves the aim of achieving a result wherever we play and know we must work very hard to get it. But our supporters can always be assured that there will be no effort spared from any of us, in trying to make that happen."
Christian came off the bench to play a part in Hammers' 1-0 win over West Brom on Saturday when he replaced the injured Nigel Reo-Coker in the second half.
Apart from carrying out his duties in midfield and in defence, Christian also played a part in Teddy Sheringham's 57th minute winner when he  headed on Tomas Repka's free-kick, to where Teddy struck the ball home.
In recent weeks Christian has come on as a substitute in League games and put in a strong performance in Hammers' Carling Cup clash at Bolton last month. The Scottish international is always ready to play his part for the team when asked to and said that is one of the strengths of the squad this season.
"I just want to play and do my best. I keep myself in tip-top condition at all times, I'm feeling really fit which is important because you have to be prepared in whatever role the boss chooses for you. I keep myself fit and always ready anyway and am pleased with the way I have performed so far this season.
"We all want to be in the starting line-up, but you do need a big squad in this League and not everyone will always get to play. It showed in how we played against Bolton in the Cup, that we have players who will do a fantastic job when called upon. Elliott Ward, James Collins, Fletch, Shaun Newton and Clive Clarke have all done the job when it is asked of them so the gaffer knows there is cover there if he needs it. Bobby Zamora , David Bellion and Jeremie Aliadiere have also done their jobs in the League when called upon in recent weeks.
"It's good that we have this and I don't think you can fault any of the boys, those who play every week and those who don't, for what they've been trying to do."
