"I'm definitely a better manager because of my recent experiences", said Moyes, 54.
Such was the backlash against Moyes' appointment at West Ham United that the club nearly had second thoughts, and yet nobody connected to Everton is questioning the fact they have offered £10 million in compensation to try to take Silva from Watford, just 12 games into his Vicarage Road career.
"But he has to be a team player. The other players also have to do the work for the team if they want to be part of it".
Moyes expects defender Winston Reid and forward Diafra Sakho to be fit after returning from global duty, but striker Chicharito is out for up to two weeks with a hamstring problem. "I've always said that I have Chivas in my heart, but I have never asked to leave West Ham at any time".
"Don't be asking for anything else because we are not changing it". Because of the level it's at we're not sure. "But the players have responded and they've been good".
He added: "I actually think there's quite a lot, you'll have heard that they've already come in [under Bilic] and locked the dressing room and said "we better sort this out amongst ourselves". Don't wait for the manager - you need to do it". It's bad if that is what it is, but players need to be the ones who take more responsibility.
"Players want accountability and I will give them that". And I will give them that. But within that they have to take their own responsibility on and off the field.
But while getting the Hammers out of trouble could be his biggest test yet, Moyes is determined to prove himself all over again. "They are all well-paid individuals".
The new manager is acutely aware that he must seize the opportunity he has been granted in returning to the Premier League's coalface following the dismissal of Slaven Bilic, and his own hard spell at Sunderland, and there is a renewed determination to make his mark. "I've got to try to get them to overachieve".
