West Ham supporters are not expecting – or necessarily wanting – to see lavish amounts spent on star names. After all the club has been there, done that and seen it does not necessarily work in the not too distant past.

But West Ham fans do want to see Moyes backed to sign the players he wants with the club pushing for the top four, in the last 16 of the Europa League and still in the hat for the FA Cup.

With 20 days left of the window, there is still time to get deals done.

But some West Ham fans have bemoaned the fact the club did not have targets lined up ready to move at the start of the month.

Indeed a number of recent media reports claim West Ham may not bring anyone in this month.

After the Leeds win on Sunday Moyes delivered a brief but positive update on West Ham’s January plans, saying he has the board’s backing to sign new players.
