Noble suggested that the main aim for the Hammers next season will be to get into a position where Europa League football is possible for the move to the Olympic Stadium, ahead of the 2016/2017 campaign.
“It’s great, affordable for everyone – it’s just one more season at Upton Park and then onto a new chapter for the club,” said Noble.
“A lot of the players haven’t been in the new stadium yet – I think once you stand in there you realise how big it actually is – the Champions League is still a long way away but the Europa League is (achievable) for sure – I’m sure that will be the aim.”
Hopefully Sam Allardyce, or whoever replaces him, will be backed in the transfer market this summer to improve the squad so West Ham are in a better position to cope with the problems they have experienced this season.
European football will create a number of benefits which West Ham don’t currently enjoy, which show why it’s such an important aim for the club.
It would allow the Hammers to target a better quality of player as well as creating extra financial opportunities, which make the future look even brighter for the club. They just have to make the right decisions to ensure they get there.
