Skipper Nigel Reo-Coker fears for his West Ham future following the departure of manager Alan Pardew.
Reo-Coker has failed to match the form he showed last season
The midfielder, 22, has been criticised this season and worries he may be shown the door in the transfer window.
He told The Sun: "Whoever the new boss is, it will be down to them whether I will still be here next year.
"I've no idea what is going to happen in January. Everyone keeps saying I should be sacked and it's all my fault we've been doing so badly."
Now Alan Pardew has gone it's only going to get worse for me with people pointing the finger
Pardew was sacked on Monday by new chairman Eggert Magnusson after recording just one win in six games.
Magnusson has seen his club spiral into the relegation zone and score just one goal in his four games at the helm.
Former Charlton boss Alan Curbishley is expected to step into the hot-seat but Reo-Coker is concerned he is going to have to field more criticism from disgruntled fans.
"Now Pardew has gone it's only going to get worse for me with people pointing the finger," he added.
"Alan's departure was a shock to everyone. Alan is a really great bloke and I can't believe it has happened now."
