Moyes: We must start from scratch
Cape Town – David Moyes knows that in order to make a success of his time at West Ham United he will need to solve the club's defensive problems.
In 11 games, the Hammers have conceded 23 goals while scoring 11 for the worst defensive record in the league.
Their two wins has left the club in 18th place with nine points, just clear of Swansea on eight and Crystal Palace, who have four points.
Moyes' first game in charge is at Watford on Sunday, and admitted he has paid close attention to the goals they have shipped this season.
He said: "We would be stupid if we didn't look back.
"We've looked at the goals we've conceded and we have got the worst defensive record in the league. We've got to try and find a way of stopping that."
Moyes added: "Ultimately, they've got to be a bit more humble for each other, work for the team, and score goals together and defend together.
"We must start from scratch and give the players a chance to start again.
"I can only do that by getting the players onside and making sure they are doing the right things," he added.
"They're telling me they want to work hard, be organised and disciplined. I hope once I've done that, they won't be complaining."
