"West Ham is a top club and I want to be a success".
Now 54, Moyes is not one for casual, high fashion hoodies and sneakers like Pep Guardiola, and wore a sombre, yet nonetheless probably very expensive blue suit, with a spotted claret and blue tie.
"He likes to play good football".
"My ambition at the moment is only short term, I have to win games, get us away from the wrong end of the table - and the squad is good enough". "It's good for me because I'm back in, it's what I do and want to do well".
"I would like to thank the Chairmen and the board, for offering me the chance to manage this great club, and for the support they have given me during my time in charge".
"If you are asking me where my best attribute is, it's out on the grass training with players, but we need the players to show it", he said.

"It's good for me".
"I have a point to prove".
I promise to never do any sinful things in my life if you find a way to put the Interlull where it belongs: chained up, screaming with a rag stuffed in its mouth, as it falls off the side of a large ship on its journey to the bottom of the sea.
Bilic, the trained lawyer, often gave long-winded answers in which he would tease a conclusion from himself after several minutes of considering the issue, often with great humour and self-awareness. I've probably got one of the best win records in the Premier League.
