West Ham’s Mark Noble has tipped new manager David Moyes to lead the club towards success in the future, but has insisted that impressive performances mean nothing with the results to back them up. The Hammers have won just two of their 15 league games this season, and sit 19th in the Premier League table, needing two wins to left themselves from the relegation zone.
The appointment of David Moyes as West Ham manager remains a contentious subject amongst fans, yet reports from inside the London Stadium suggest that the players have adopted a more positive attitude in recent weeks.
Captain Mark Noble has now opened up about changes within the West Ham camp, and the effect that David Moyes has had on morale.
“I’m not going to stand here and say it’s been fantastic because, for me, football is not enjoyable unless you’re winning games,” said Noble.
“I love to win. We’re in a results business now where you have to win games and we haven’t done that.
“What I will say is that it’s been good under the new manager, he’s set a stall out for how he wants to play. Some of the performances have been really good but the results haven’t gone the way we wanted. You can slowly see it turning around. If you don’t stick together you’ll be in trouble.
“I’ve been in dressing rooms where the atmosphere has been much worse. We’ve got a good bunch of honest players that it hasn’t gone for them this season. I can see the small changes in the things we’re doing that hopefully, the results turn around.”
West Ham are set to take on Chelsea on Saturday (Dec 9), before hosting Arsenal on Wednesday (Dec 13).
