And a number of fans have urged owners David Sullivan and David Gold to bring back Sam Allardyce on a short-term deal to save West Ham from relegation.

West Ham are in the relegation mire with seven games remaining.

David Moyes is under massive pressure from West Ham supporters, many of whom were against his return following the sacking of Manuel Pellegrini.

The Scot has been questioned and ridiculed for his team selection, tactics and in-game management.

After a three-month break, Moyes still appears clueless as to how he can get the best out of his West Ham side.

Now there are growing calls for the club to act before it is too late.

Many Hammers supporters want former manager Allardyce back.

Influential Hammers fan Dave Walker, who co-hosts the popular West Ham Way podcast alongside reliable insider ExWHUemployee, is pushing for the change.

And got plenty of support.

Some fans feel Allardyce would get an instant reaction from the squad and would do enough to keep West Ham up.

Fans call for Moyes to be sacked and replaced by Allardyce

Others feel going cap in hand to their former boss – who divided opinion among fans towards the end of his time at the club – is not an option.

“I would love to have this man (Allardyce) back for the last seven games,” Walker said on Twitter.

“He’s out of work and loves a pound note so pay Moyes off (which would be about 75 quid) and offer big Sam a fat bonus to keep us up.

“That bonus would be silly money in comparison to what we would lose if we go down.”

Here are a selection of responses to the suggestion from West Ham fans.
