Ray Parlour believes that West Ham need to develop a “team ethic” if they are to improve under David Moyes.
Parlour was talking on Alan Brazil’s Sports Breakfast show (talkSPORT, Monday 9.15am) and shared his opinion on how Moyes would fare in his new post.
He said: “They need performances now, it’s more of a team ethic they need, they’ve got lots of good individuals.”
West Ham are 18th in the Premier League with just nine points from 11 games and are looking for Moyes to turn things around.
The Hammers have not won any of their last four league games, and in this run they suffered a heavy defeat at home against Brighton.
The dismal start to the season saw Slaven Bilic given his marching orders, with the 4-1 defeat courtesy of Liverpool being the last straw.
Moyes was quickly hired as his replacement and will be in charge of his first game when West Ham travel to face Watford on November 19.
The Scottish manager has been without a club since resigning from Sunderland in May 2017.
During the 54-year-old’s reign at Sunderland they were relegated from the Premier League after only achieving 24 points from 38 games.
Before an unsuccessful spell as manager of Sunderland, the Scottish manager had a dismal spell at both Real Sociedad and Manchester United, and Everton fans will be hoping he can buck this recent trend at Goodison.
