Mark Noble calls upon West Ham fans to stick by club

Noble is keen to see the Hammers fans support the club to the end of the campaign.

The East London club have endured a torrid 2015, but Noble has issued a rallying statement through the official West Ham website to the fans for the remainder of the campaign.

The midfielder said: “Stick by us, we've had a good season, it could have been a really good season, but it wasn't meant to be.”

After starting the campaign in great form and blowing away all opposition with attacking football, the club have returned to form in 2015, and won just two games.

They have never been in fear of a potential relegation, although their fourth placed position at Christmas gave hopes of a European qualification - rather than the mid-table finish they are now set to secure.

There have rightfully been some criticisms of the club, and head coach Sam Allardyce in particular, as a change in style to long-ball has been laid to blame as the reason for the downturn in form.

However, that is not entirely behind the struggles, with injuries and fatigue playing a key role as the Hammers posses a small squad in relation to their rivals. The fans have no right to complain when it is these issues behind the slump that could see them drop into the lower half of the table, and Noble is right to issue a rallying cry for the Hammers faithful to stick with the team who represent them on a weekly basis.
