Slaven Bilic was sacked and replaced by David Moyes who has so far failed to turn things around in East London, losing three and drawing one of his first four games in charge.
Many point to transfers as one of the biggest downfalls for Bilic during his West Ham United tenure.
Under Bilic fans were never sure who was making the signings and what the club's transfer policy was.
Indeed the blame for poor signings seemed to rest at the door of Bilic while the owners often took credit for any success stories, like Dimitri Payet.
The Hammers look short all over the pitch after signing just four first team players during the summer.
Supporters no longer trust the club's transfer policy and methods and are sceptical about what January might bring.
“I’ve only been here two or three weeks. To have done all that work, and be prepared, I don’t think anybody could do that (look at potential transfers) in that short time.
"But I do expect the staff that work here and the people in that department will have me plenty of people to look at recommend, and if I think it’s needed nearer the time I’ll go and see them.”
