According to a report from the Athletic, West Ham owners David Sullivan and David Gold were unimpressed with Mark Noble’s tweet on Friday night. But they allegedly have no plans to discipline the club captain.
The 33-year-old Hammers man took to Twitter following the sale of Grady Diangana to West Brom to vent his anger and frustration.
Noble was followed by the likes of Declan Rice, Issa Diop, Arhtur Masuaku and Jack Wilshere who either commented on, replied to or retweeted the skipper’s tweet.
West Ham are a club in crisis at the moment. Everything seems to be going wrong before the start of the new season.
Everything could change of course with a few astute signings. But as things stand, tensions are running extremely high in east London.
Noble’s tweet was perhaps unprofessional, but many would argue that it was exactly what was needed.
The Athletic claims that West Ham owners Sullivan and Gold were unimpressed with the skipper’s tweet, but at the same time, they have no plans to punish him.
The Hammers play host to Newcastle on the opening day of the new Premier League campaign on Saturday.
And it is an understatement to say that we are desperate for three points. A win would at least bring back some much-needed positivity to the club as a whole.
It is very hard to find positives in what has been a sea of negativity so far this summer. But perhaps Noble’s tweet will end up being the kick up the backside that the owners needed.
