I had to smile after Messi’s exit from Barça, as it meant that Mark Noble is officially the longest serving one- club player in Europe. Us West Ham fans know he’s far from being the best player in Europe ( fun as that would be), but I think it’s an achievemen­t that deserves a bit more credit than it’ll probably get. You can’t just stick with one club for so long because you feel like it – it’s a two- way process – so well in, Nobes. Now, if he can just convince Declan Rice to do the same, that’d be much appreciate­d in east London...
