Cole: We are not safe yet

Carlton Cole has admitted that West Ham United still have a lot of work to do to secure their Premier League survival, but believes it is important to look up rather than down.

Carlton Cole: Happy with West Ham's form but insists there is a lot of work

Carlton Cole: Happy with West Ham's form but insists there is a lot of work

The Hammers were in deep trouble just a few weeks ago but a run of four straight wins has catapulted them into the top half of the table.

However, just seven points still separate Sam Allardyce's men from the bottom three and Cole insists there is no chance of thinking safety is already guaranteed.

The striker is staying focused on Saturday's clash with Everton and hopes West Ham can continue to climb the standings.

"We're not safe yet, we just need to keep winning games," Cole told the club's official website. "We are looking upwards. At the start of the season, we were looking up too and it is good to do that rather than looking over your shoulder, because that can lead to mistakes.

"We now have to look towards Everton, which will be a hard game.

"They are a good footballing team so we just need to nullify their attacking and try and get a goal, because the form we are in at the moment, we can notch against anyone."

Cole netted his sixth goal of the season in the 3-1 victory over Southampton and is delighted with his form, having returned to the club on an 18-month deal last year.

"I didn't have a pre-season, but I have been playing and that is what I need to do," he said.

"Training has been intense. There is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes to keep me fit. I feel wanted because I got re-signed.

"When you are not feeling wanted, it is always hard to take, but when you feel wanted it is a big difference to your game and your attitude."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
