West Ham United supporters hit back at Noble over his dig at fans

Mark Noble has upset a few West Ham United fans for claiming that most spectators “don’t really understand the game”.

In an interview with Sky Sports News the club captain responded to criticism that he has faced of late, with many fans calling for manager Slaven Bilic to drop him.

The 29-year-old, who is closing in on 400 appearances for the East London outfit, has started all but two of the Hammers’ 28 Premier League matches this season.

In some quarters of the club’s following, Noble’s performances have not impressed, but the man himself has answered back by questioning the fans’ knowledge.

He told the broadcaster:

“If I am really honest, a lot of people who now go to football don’t really understand the game. Football is a game of moments now and if someone does four step-overs, they’ve had an incredible game. That’s not something I do. It’s just football, you’ve got to live with it.”

West Ham have had a difficult campaign, mainly due to issues off it, with the summer move to the London Stadium causing problems among fans.

In addition, Dimitri Payet’s decision to force a move away from the Hammers caused some disruption in January.

Noble’s frank comments have not been taken well by a number of West Ham supporters, who feel that their captain is insulting them.
