Time to stand up and be counted, says Ayew

Andre Ayew says that he and his team mates need to begin shouldering responsibility for West Ham's below par performances.

The Ghanaian international started last night as West Ham were thrashed 4-0 by fellow strugglers Everton, leaving David Moyes' side firmly entrenched in a relegation battle.

And with Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal to follow in the next three games, Ayew says it's time the squad started to show a little fight.

"There are no words. We came here with lots of determination to do something," he said in reaction to last night's defeat. "We leave here with zero points and four goals conceded. Itís not normal.

"We need to stay strong, be men, take responsibility and move forward. Itís not going to be easy. It'll be difficult as we have tough games coming up - but we need to tune our minds, fight and try and get the maximum points that we can from those games.

"Itís been frustrating, but we need to turn our season around."

Last night's defeat left West Ham in 18th spot in the Premier League with just 10 points from their opening 14 matches - one more than Crystal Palace and Swansea, who could both rise above the Hammers this weekend with a point each.
