"I'm in a hurry and they need to be in a hurry too", he said.
The 54-year-old said it was a simple decision to take over at West Ham, despite only being given a contract to the end of the season, and accepted he will need to rebuild his reputation.
"She didn't discuss it at all with me", he said.
"All the best teams have the best defences".
"We have to get ourselves clean sheets, get bedded down".
In his unveiling video on West Ham's Twitter account, Moyes attempted to rally the fans, saying: 'I'm really looking forward to meeting the supporters, being in the stadium with them. Let's see if we can find a way of stopping conceding goals.
Slaven Bilic was sacked on Monday, along with his backroom team, after a awful run of form saw West Ham battling to get out of the relegation zone. "I want the football to be entertaining".
"During the summer, the board invested heavily signing the players Slaven believed would complete the squad he needed to push the club back towards the level we had reached in his first season, and we believe we have the players capable of doing that". They certainly shouldn't be in the position they are in. "The job now is to win games", he told talkSPORT after being announced as West Ham boss. Once they know they are not performing they need to take responsibility.
On Bilic and West Ham's players: "I'd never criticise another manager, it is not my style". I am well aware we have a lot of tough games coming up.
"I am sad that it hasn't worked out in the way we wanted this season".
West Ham said Bilic's coaching assistants Nikola Jurcevic, Edin Terzic, Julian Dicks and Miljenko Rak have also left the club with immediate effect.
In fact, Moyes is so confident in his own ability that he claimed that he's got "one of the best win records in the Premier League".
