West Ham boast of one the best above-average squads in the Premier League.
As a result, it’s both shocking and surprising that a club that played Europa League qualifiers last season currently occupy 18th on the log with almost a third of the campaign gone.
New Hammers manager David Moyes was aware it would take more than tactics for him to change the club’s fortunes, hence his decision to hold discussions with 3 of the club’s senior players upon his arrival.
According to The Sunday Times, the Scot spoke to the trio of skipper Mark Noble, Andy Carroll Pablo Zabaleta during within his first three days at the East London club in order to find out the issues.
West Ham players have been generally poor at every department this term, but the senior trio assured Moyes there is an “appetite to turn things round”.
The former Everton manager has vowed to hold no prisoners in his attempt to get the players firing on all cylinders, and with drills, including double training sessions, targeted to push the players to the limit, a new West Ham side is bound to emerge.
The club travel to Vicarage Road after the break to face a solid Watford, before a tough run of fixtures in December which will see them play Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham.
