Mark Noble shared how he and his teammates have been keeping in touch via a group chat during the Covid-19 break, when writing his weekly column for the Evening Standard.

The Hammers last played on March 7th, and as things stand, the earliest they will be in action again is April 30th.

These are uncertain times for not only footballers, but every single person on the planet.

Peoples’ health is of paramount importance. Football has taken a back-seat over the past two weeks, and rightly so.

But that doesn’t mean that millions of people are not yearning for the return of the beautiful game. In fact, football should put a smile back on a lot of peoples’ faces when it does in fact return.

And Noble shared what he and his West Ham teammates have been discussing via a group chat during the coronavirus enforced break, when writing his weekly column for the Evening Standard:

“The West Ham players have a group chat thing going, so I’ve been speaking to quite a few of the boys this week. I don’t think any of us realised it was going to be this serious until the last few days, when the Government have begun to announce more severe measures to try to deal with this virus. As players, we know that, at some point, we are going to have to be back training and then playing again but, beyond that, we are just waiting and watching for developments.”

Everyone is currently in the dark regarding when life will actually return to normal. Hopefully that will be sooner rather than later.

West Ham have a real relegation battle on their hands whenever they do actually return to action.

And Hammers fans will be hoping that the recent break has done the players good. With some tough fixtures on the horizon, David Moyes needs all of his team to return in fine fettle, both physically and mentally.
