West Ham United co chairman has named Hammers captain Mark Noble as his Man of the Match in Sunday’s victory over Manchester United.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side cruised to a fantastic 2-0 victory over the struggling , with Andriy Yarmolenko and Aaron on the scoresheet.

But it was Mr. West Ham who caught Gold’s eye: “Good morning all, just come down to earth,” he wrote on his personal Twitter account on Monday.

“David Kidd sports writer of the Sun wrote “ found themselves overwhelmed by a cauldron of noise” Home support at its best. For me. Man of Match, Captain Mark Noble. dg.”


Gold is right about the atmosphere on Sunday. It looked like it was absolutely terrific. Games between West Ham and Man United are always feisty affairs, and faithful ensured that Sunday’s game at the was played in a fervent cauldron of noise, as Kidd wrote. As for Noble, he was tremendous. The captain has gone underrated for so long, appreciated in east but not so much elsewhere. However, this season it appears that those outside the West Ham bubble are finally seeing how good Noble actually is. He’s not just a starter because he’s the skipper and he’s a one club man, he’s in Pellegrini’s team on merit. The Englishman showed what he could do against , bullying the visiting midfielders and showing them how to operate in central midfield. Declan Rice and Noble played  Solskjaer’s team off the park, and the captain deserves recognition from the co chairman.
