The American international believes the current crop of Hammers players are better than that which stayed up four years ago, but will have to work hard to avoid it againJonathan Spector believes that the current West Ham side has more quality than Alan Curbishley's team which managed to avoid relegation on the final day of the season back in 2007.
The American was part of the squad that included Carlos Tevez and Yossi Benayoun four years ago, but is of the opinion that the Hammers' squad now is better and can avoid the drop again.
Spector told the club's official website: “It is a very different team from the one we had that stayed up four years ago.
“It is a strong team that we have right now, probably stronger than we had back then. It hasn’t happened for us this season but now we have to come together as a group and get some points.”
