West Ham captain Mark Noble has issued a rallying cry but the fans don’t seem too happy with the message from their captain.
The Hammers are back in the relegation battle after a stunning 3-0 defeat at home to Burnley. Pitch invasion and fan protests added to the chaos on Saturday afternoon.

West Ham are currently 16th in the Premier League table, just 3 points above the drop zone.
It will be interesting to see how West Ham regroup and bounce back from this situation. Mark Noble’s message to the fans seems like an attempt to calm them down. The West Ham star explained that the players will always try to do their best for the club.
It is clear that Noble wants to bridge the chasm between the club and the fans during this crisis.
However, things have not worked out as expected and the Hammers fans have reacted to Noble’s message saying that it’s uninspiring and embarrassing.
Here are some of the reactions from the West Ham fans on Twitter.
About as motivational as a cold bath

After the worst week of the season you’d think they’d make an effort to get it right.

You can’t even convince yourself to be motivated, embarrassing!

Poor attempt at appeasing the fans this one. I’ve a feeling this will have the exact opposite effect of what it was planned to do.
We’re fed of hearing “get through this season and try again in the summer”. Learning form mistakes requires not continually repeating them.
