Mark Noble is putting a brave  face on the Hammers plight and claiming spirit on the training ground is top class.

The buzz word appears to ‘togetherness’ as the midfield loyalist speaks of team spirit still being top class.”

Sadly words are all a little cheap right now wherever they come from with Noble declaring the issues are the same as the last time (the Hammers were relegated.).

He said: “It’s the same with not scoring enough but I believe the team spirit, the squad, the chairmen, the manager and the staff this time are a lot more together.

“Obviously, we are having a tough time at the minute but it doesn’t feel like that at the training ground. We’re still bright and bubbly and I’m pretty sure we’ll turn it around.

“We had a great season last year but there were times then when we needed to win to give us a bit of breathing space.

“We were only three points above the relegation places at one time and that was after we had started the season so well.”
