West Ham have turned a corner under David Moyes but know they are still very much in the relegation mix in an increasingly congested Premier League.

The Hammers squad has been devastated by a glut of injuries to key players of late just as they embark on the most crucial run of fixtures in their season.

Marko Arnautovic, Manuel Lanzini and Andy Carroll are all out medium to long-term joining the likes of Michail Antonio, Winston Reid, Diafra Sakho, Andre Ayew and Edimilson Fernandes on the sidelines.

Moyes has made no secret of his desire to bring in new players during the January transfer window and that need has now become acute if the East Londoners want to give themselves every chance of staying up.

The Hammers have been linked with more than 40 players this month alone, much to the bemusement of an unimpressed Moyes who already looks exasperated with the situation and remarked earlier this month 'I'm beginning to find out a bit about West Ham'.

West Ham fans and pundits like Jamie Carragher have been critical of the club's owners David Sullivan and David Gold in the past for the very public way they do business.

The owners have maintained a much lower profile this time around but supporters are far from happy.

Fan groups have been set up to campaign for a change of ownership after what they feel have been broken promises from Sullivan, Gold and vice-chairman Karren Brady over transfers, spending, ambition and the controversial move to the former Olympic Stadium.

There is a groundswell of apathy from the Hammers faithful who were promised big things as a carrot to leave their beloved Upton Park.

Many are threatening not to renew season tickets next term unless there are changes or the club makes good on its pledges to compete for top players in the transfer market.

Another transfer window failure between now and Wednesday's deadline could see Sullivan and Gold with a revolt on their hands.
