Ask any Hammers supporter and I`m sure they`ll readily admit that they were disappointed the club crashed out of the FA Cup, in the 4th round, at the hands of the League One side Wigan.

Wigan, off course, have since gone on to reach the quarter-finals after beating Manchester City in the fifth round.

But, football is a game of priorities now.

Winning the FA Cup would be a memorable experience but if it were to be at the cost of our Premier league status then I`m sure serious questions would be asked.

This afternoon, David Moyes held his pre-match press conference ahead of a tricky away fixture, at Anfield.

During the press conference he gave an insight into his priorities whilst he`s in charge, remarking to the assembled media,

‘A hundred percent I would have rather been in the cup, but we are trying to keep the players fresh. The trap door is still not far enough away for me, let’s hope we can look up the table.

‘We are always going to be under pressure as we are expected to be in the top half and we want to be in the top half. We have done well, but there is a long way to go.’

Indeed, there is and dropping into the Championship is not on the agenda.
