Grant upbeat over Hammers future

BY foxsports • February 14, 2011

Avram Grant is confident of realising his "long-term vision" for West Ham despite the prospect of relegation from the Premier League.

The club were delighted to be named as the preferred bidder for the Olympic Stadium last week, a step which owners David Gold and David Sullivan believe could usher in a bright future.

Grant is also working towards that, but accepts their perilous league position means they must for now focus on one game at a time.

The Hammers are just one point above bottom club Wolves, who have played one game fewer, but Grant is refusing to be downbeat after coming back from three down to score a 3-3 draw at West Brom on Saturday.

He told the club's official website: "We are thinking positively. We have a long-term plan here at West Ham.

"We knew this first year would be difficult but our vision is that every year we will do the right thing.

"When we come to the (Olympic) stadium we will have a good team in the Premier League. We have a long-term vision but in football that has to start with the next match.

"We built a good squad and if everyone is fit, or even in 90% are fit, we have a good team. If you make a table from the last 10 games, we are in the middle of the league."
