Neill admits being humbled by West Ham captaincy

"Even now it makes me tingle," he told WHUTV. "It is a great honour and you mention Bobby Moore and to put your name on a list with great names such as that is truly remarkable.

"I don't see it as an achievement - I see it as a privilege or an honour. It surprises me when I am leading out a talented squad in a big club. It is very humbling and very rewarding."

"I am trying to be the best I can be, trying to be a leader," the No2 explained. "I was trying to hard with some of the things I was doing earlier in the season. I was trying to be too much of a captain rather than just a player and letting people follow you naturally. I am working it out but I hope it is the first season of many."
