Noble hails Hammers turnaround
Mark Noble says West Ham fans have accepted the London Stadium as their new home and the whole atmosphere of the club has changed.
The Hammers faithful were less than happy to be dragged out of their legendary Upton Park home to be plonked into their new stadium.
That, coupled with a loss of form and the team not playing in any sort of style that could be described as the 'West Ham way', led to the on-pitch protests which made all the headlines back in March last year.
Noble says the board buying better players and the support of the Hammers faithful have been key to turning things around.
He told the Evening Standard: “What a welcome transformation (it has been since the protests) and much credit has to go to the board, the staff, the players and the supporters for all helping to get this great club back on track.
“The situation has improved massively since that dark day — March 10, 2018. First and foremost, fans now seem much happier about where they are sitting in the stadium.
“We’ve come a long way in the last 12 months. We’ve made the London Stadium a good and exciting place to play and watch football — and long may it continue.”
