By West Ham Zone speaking to Frank McAvennie

We’re delighted to welcome former West Ham United striker Frank McAvennie as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at the London Stadium

Frank McAvennie has shared that he has been told there was a “big argument” in the West Ham dressing room after the 4-0 loss to Brighton.

The Hammers were well beaten in the Premier League which left David Moyes under huge pressure and fighting for his job prior to a win over AEK Larneca and then a 1-1 draw with Aston Villa most recently.

But McAvennie says it all kicked off in the dressing room after that defeat, and claims it may have been a good thing as it shows the players care about the club and what is happening on the pitch.

“I heard there was a big argument in the dressing room after the weekend (loss v Brighton), so if that’s starting to creep in…” he told West Ham Zone.

“But how long can you leave it? I think he’s [Moyes] under pressure, but David knows that. You can see the way he’s talking.

“If the players are starting to have a go in the dressing room like I heard about, and they were all involved, coaches as well. It may not be a bad thing because it shows that they care. I don’t know who, I don’t know if the manager instigated it or the players, I don’t know.

“But if it’s true I’m quite happy about it because it shows that they’ve got feelings about the club, so hopefully it’s true. They don’t become spoilt little boys, because they need results for the fans.”

The Hammers face another Europa Conference League clash with AEK Larneca on Thursday (17 March) before a break in action until 2 April when they face Southampton in the Premier League.
