Rio Ferdinand discusses best-ever West Ham team-mate on Twitter... mentions John Moncur

The former West Ham centre-back picked his best-ever Hammers team-mate - and his funniest.

Ex-West Ham United defender Rio Ferdinand says John Moncur was his funniest team-mate at Upton Park.

But, he was asked to pick his best-ever West Ham team-mate and Ferdinand didn't hesitate to name Frank Lampard when it came to the quality of his football.

West Ham's current side could end up making history in terms of their success in east London - if not this season, then in the coming campaigns.

And it'll be interesting to see how the current crop ranks in terms of the Hammers' greats.

When England won the World Cup, West Ham's top players ran the top flight. More recently, Ferdinand, Lampard and Joe Cole have been some of their most famous exports.

Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano, albeit briefly, were top-class West Ham players and, these days, the likes of Dimitri Payet and more could easily leave their mark on the history books at Upton Park - and then the Olympic Stadium.
