West Ham United legend Julian Dicks has slammed the club's current players.
The Hammers have suffered three successive 4-0 defeats piling pressure on boss Alan Curbishley.
"These are all professional footballers, they are earning fortunes, but a lot of them are just going through the motions."
Dicks added: "At the end of the day the manager gets the blame which I think that is wrong. It's down to the players, they're the ones out on the pitch.
"Nowadays people give them (managers) eight months or a year and if they don't do anything then they get rid of them which for me is wrong.
"People pay a lot of money to watch the team play and we all have bad days, but it's when people don't try or there's no passion, that's what really gets fans annoyed."
