Mr West Ham Takes His Bow, But Arrive Early!

Mr West Ham, Mark Noble the ex England U-21 skipper shamefully ignored by Roy Hodgson, will be filed with pride as he steps out in front of a full Boleyn Ground for his well earned testimonial. Once upon a time the ten year testimonial was a vital financial preparation ahead of a player's retirement, but times have changed and Mark, like others who now enjoy a very comfortable wage has elected to donate all the income received to three charities, the DT38 Foundation, Help for Heroes and Richard House Children's Hospice.

Apart from the Mark Noble for England debate, turbo charged by BT Sport and other TV shows, there has been little of substance to report.

Perhaps the opportunity to recharge the batteries will actually benefit West Ham United's home grown players enabling them to take on the remaining fixtures with renewed energy and vigour.

Chelsea And Their Ref Battle For Point Against Superior Hammers
