Mark Noble has stated that although West Ham have endured a rather frustrating pre-season to date, he believes the club will improve on last seasons 13th place finish.
Noble, who also admits he only enjoyed two months of the previous season said: ”I’ve been through pre-seasons where we’ve battered everyone and then lost the first three. But you need a good start.
‘’We’ve got two weeks to knuckle down and do what we need to do to become a proper team. Hopefully we can get another couple of signings in and enjoy this season.
‘’A cup run would be a bonus,’ he conceded. ‘For the club, what with the new stadium coming, the main concentration will be the league. We want to improve on 13th spot.’’
