Noble: “We’re no longer a circus act”

NobleMark Noble reckons that West Ham is no “lo longer a circus act but a proper football club” and that under Slaven Bilic it can go to a different level.

Noble was a mere kid of none when the manager arrived for the first time as a player and said: “When he was at West Ham, I was a young pup looking down from the stands.

He added: “I still think I am 22, but I am not. I have been here a long time now and with the likes of Julian Dicks here now and knowing Johnny Moncur, Steve Lomas as well, they have all spoken really highly of the boss.

“We are still all getting to know each other, both me as a player and him as a manager. He came in on the first day and said we will train hard, but  also with a smile on our face.

“To me, as one of the experienced players, the future is looking bright. I think now the boys are more comfortable now that the majority of the squad, plus the new signings, are together and getting to know each other.

“There is no better way to do that than to play games. West Ham is no longer a circus act but a proper football club”
