Some supporters sided with Noble, reiterating his status as a club legend and eluding to how much he clearly cares about West Ham.
However, others adopted a different tone, asking the 33-year-old to get off his high horse, damningly criticising his leadership skills and taking aim at his footballing abilities.
Noble has only failed to start in three league matches this season – clearly he hasn’t been able to do enough to prevent Moyes’ men fall into a relegation scrap.

Club legend ⚒️
Comments on here saying the interview is big headed, it’s the opposite! He’s saying that he shouldn’t be a guaranteed 1st teamer at his age, but he is, because our recruitment is so appalling.
Speak to the board @Noble16Mark and demand they spend some money!!!

People talk about Noble being a club legend, he is and has been average at best.
Cannot motivate players on the pitch
Best we move on and concentrate on getting a team that we get us out of the championship

Noble needs to get off his high horse. He is largely part of the problem. Only motivates the team a few games a season. Slow as a dinosaur and been well past it for over 4 years. Slowing the game down alot. Another one well overpaid

We never relied on him when he was 20-30 in fact he relied on Parker so wouldn’t say we rely on him now, if case then players would relyon him for performance at Leicester, Burnley etc which never happened which is his failure as captain to realise he ain’t good enough anymore

Shouldn’t have been relying on him full stop. Average player. Poor leader
