Why do some of you lot think it's ok to class protesters as nobheads?

Is it because the media keeps banging on about it being unacceptable?

Since the events of Saturday afternoon this single, peaceful act of defiance has been picked up on by those of us who already knew exactly what it symbolised and also by the press in several, very well judged and informed articles that brings the current treatment of our supporters by past and present 'custodians' into sharp, history repeating relief.

The stadium might not be iconic but that single act of defiance inside it most definitely was. In time, and as this situation's cards fall where they may, I hope you'll come to appreciate that

Those who keep banging that it happened solely because we were losing the game then explain why these fans haven't reacted this way on numerous occasions in the past at the London Stadium when we are 'losing the game'?

They can't because it wouldn't fit this stupid idea that West Ham fans support West Ham because we win every game and that we all want results all the time over anything. Obviously the reason we became West Ham fans is because of our success, I am 26 almost 27 and we haven't won a real trophy since 10 years before I was born.

Exactly. They just dont get it. Losing games we're used too but what happened on Saturday was the straw that broke the camels back.

As for HongKong hammer ****ing off the likes of Bubbles for what he did. :lol:

Genuinely surprised with how this poll is going. I've only seem the few seconds of Noble throwing the bloke across the floor so i've not seen the build up to it, but would have thought most would back him.

Personally i'm on the fence. I can see reasons for and against what he did.

Nobes lost his temper, the fan lost his mind...in my humble opinion.

I have the utmost respect for the guy (Paul) with the flag. He knew his history and he knew the impact it would evoke, plus he did what he did peacefully and with great humility. I think the guy who Nobes jostled to the ground deserved everything he got. Taking a piece of A4 paper onto the middle of ANY pitch (even Upton Park or Loftus Road) was always going to have zero visibility...let alone doing it in the soulless bowl. He didn't think it through, and - in that moment - he 'assisted' the second Burnley goal (or, at the very least, gave our players the perfect excuse for conceding it).

Many of the protestors on Saturday were heroes...but not every single one of them (IMHO).

No.

He acted like a twat and spoke like a **** who is in the pockets of the chairman.

Absolutely plummeted in respect levels.

I don't understand that the actions of the first invader are treated as fact that he directly caused the second goal because it is not like we don't go on to concede more than one goal in matches very often lately, I appreciate that it didn't help but prior to the first goal Burnley were on top and had just had a goal disallowed that we failed to react to as a warning and with the introduction of Wood, Burnley were starting to carve us apart something Moyes did not look to change until after the second goal.

It seems to be epidemic at the club and some supporters in blaming others rather than those who are directly responsible and for the 2nd goal it was the players and Moyes not some pitch invader who are to blame especially when they have been capable of conceding plenty with the full support of our fans most of the season.

part of Mark noble...captain, leader, legend...died for me saturday afternoon. I was ****ing furious with how he reacted. i get he wanted to get on with the game and i have sympathy for that....in hindsight a better thing for him to do other than usher the fan off would have been to gather the boys together and get them motivated that the games isnt over...something he has failed to turn around on too many occasions....instead no of course he jumps recklessly into challenges for the next 2 minutes proving hed lost his head and of course we lose the second goal. I dont hold the fans coming onto the field responsible for our loss saturday... Sorry mr west ham, this ones on you!!!

It just doesn't look good does it? Like most stuff that happened on Saturday it wasn't as bad as people make out, but we could just do without it to be honest.

I don't believe it's right to question what he did.

Let's say that someone thinks it's right to be able to go onto the pitch where they aren't supposed to be.Why then adversely should the same person think it's wrong for a player attempt to chuck them back off, especially as said player wasn't expecting the person to be there on the pitch in the first place.

It's effectively their place of work

If some went into a banks back office and started picking up a printer and placing it somewhere else all because he didn't like the way the bank was run, they would expect to be chucked straight out and couldn't complain if it was by one of the clerks and not the security guy.

Don't try and make a villain out of someone who doesn't deserve it just because they happen to disagree with you.

Quite interesting that those posts which have been most disparaging about Noble, especially the ones who mock him for being "Mr West Ham" or "One of our own" are nearly all from posters only in triple figures, and many in just the few hundreds.

I don't know if that is coincidence, age related or some other more agenda driven reason....
