West Ham fans far from impressed with shock Mark Noble stat

Embarrassed West Ham United fans on Twitter have been reacting after a shocking stat about club captain Mark Noble was posted by a fan account.

The figure centres around the defensive midfielder’s placing in the club’s list of top Premier League scorers, an eye-opening third.

Despite being the chief penalty-taker in east London for well over ten years now, Noble poses very little threat of scoring goals from open play, apart from the occasional worldie which arrives once in a blue moon.

It’s for this reason that Hammers are so irked by a glance at the list of club top scorers in the PL, with Noble on 40 strikes, three ahead of Scott Sinclair and one behind cult hero striker Carlton Cole following his penalty in Saturday’s thrilling 4-3 Premier League win over Huddersfield Town.

Some supporters have simply stated that the list makes for “embarrassing” and “upsetting” reading, while another has taken aim at the ownership at London Stadium – with their lack of quality attacking signings contributing to a defensive midfielder finding himself so high on the list.
