The Hammers appointed David Moyes as their new manager last week, following the sacking of Slaven Bilic, and the Scot's arrival in east London was not greeted with much optimism from the West Ham faithful.
The 54-year-old's reputation within the game has taken a battering following his failed stints at Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland, and it seems as though he has been offered somewhat of a last chance saloon at the London Stadium.
The hammers are currently embroiled in a whole world of trouble, and sit in 18th position in the Premier League table after their woeful return of just nine points from the 11 games they have played thus far.
If they are to excavate themselves from trouble, Moyes will have to hit the ground running, and he has taken steps in his attempt to do just that by appointing two assistant managers.
And the news didn't go down too well amongst Hammers fans.
Here are a selection of tweets from the West Ham faithful, reacting to the two new appointments:
@gigzz_ nice to see West Ham going for a proper hard Brexit approach.— Rory (@Rory_Watt) 12 November 2017

At least he’s replace one of the most talented and hardest full backs with another, past his best when he joined us as a player but if anyone can stir up our mob psycho Pearce can— John Wood (@johnw299) 12 November 2017
