Former West Ham midfielder John Moncur has claimed he has very little fear over the direction of the club, instead claiming the Hammers could be on an upward trajectory very soon.

Still reeling from leaving Upton Park, the West Ham faithful have hardly been the happiest of Premier League fan bases over the last few seasons. 

From regularly protesting those in charge of the club, to tensions reaching boiling point and overflowing into on-pitch incidents, it has felt like one catastrophe after another at times for the Hammers.

Whether it be in the boardroom or on the pitch, the Hammers have arguably under-performed since they swapped the old Boleyn Ground for the London Stadium. In fact since they made the Stratford-based stadia their new home, West ham have had four different managers, if you include David Moyes' two stints in the dugout separately. 

Moyes is the current man at the helm, re-appointed after Manuel Pellegrini's failed tenure was cut short in December of last year. West Ham currently sit 16th, but are level on 27 points with 18th placed Bournemouth who occupy the third spot in the relegation zone.

Despite winning just one of their last five, valiant showings in defeats away to Liverpool and Arsenal have gone some way to quieting the voices of discontent among the Hammers fan base. 

Speaking to the West Ham fan show on Love Sport Radio, Hammers star John Moncur conceded he understands some of the fans' concerns, but called on unity from those on the terraces to drive the club in the right direction. 

"You can see the disappointment in what they're saying, and there is some truth behind it obviously. You know, when you're saying they've been promised something with the same token, we are in a healthy position, you know. I wouldn't want to get on the air and slaughter the owners because I think they have put money into the club.

"It's a tough one because when the team ain't winning always, you know, you always direct your frustrations. I can totally understand the West Ham fans, the disappointment that's there.

"But I think as I said before, the thing is now we're in it, it's happening. We've just got to try and help the boys on the team, and I think if we can get behind them as a club and get through this year, I still think we're in a great position.

"You know, I think the club is in a healthy position and I do think that if you give him [David Moyes] time and give him some money at the end of the season, we could have a real upturn next year."
