West Ham's Cole swipe at Liverpool: You're more Forest than Chelsea

West Ham United midfielder Joe Cole has taken a swipe at former club Liverpool. Cole believes Liverpool are living in the past.

He told cfuk: "When I joined, the guy interviewing me said 'you've joined the biggest club in the country' and reeled off the trophies they'd won.

"I just said 'yeah, if you put it like that, I suppose you're right' and Liverpool used that as the headline to the interview.

"I didn't want to upset anyone so I just went along with it. But obviously they're not the biggest club in the country any more.

"How do you judge how big a club are? Nottingham Forest won the European Cup twice but they're not a bigger club than Chelsea."

 Is Cole right about the Reds? Or has he gone over the top? Give us your shout below...
