Brooking: West Ham stewards couldn't cope

Ugly scenes as West Ham lose home match

Struggling West Ham, Lille each have fans charge field in frustration on Saturday

Meanwhile, Noble said he can not see a way in which the anger from the fans towards the club's owners, much of which centres around the move from Upton Park to the London Stadium, will dissipate.

West Ham's defeat at the London Stadium was marred by several pitch invasions, scuffles in the stands and fans taunting owners David Sullivan and David Gold, both of whom were escorted away from the directors' box for safety reasons.

Sugar is pals with the pair and employs West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady on BBC show The Apprentice. "The level of aggression was something I couldn't believe a West Ham fan would get involved in".

Bad actions by a minority of fans at @WestHamUtd. We are going to lose games.

Noble, 30, said of Brooking: "He probably felt the same as me walking off the pitch".

However former Director, manager and player Sir Trevor Brooking revealed that co-owner David Sullivan - who bore the brunt of the fans' ire - was struck by an object during the second half.

In the last few months, that has not happened for him, and he was feeling that a bit with his self-confidence. And the England global believes he will be better prepared if he finds himself on the sidelines again.

It has been confirmed that Sullivan was hit by a coin thrown during the protests, with only the 69-year-old's glasses preventing potentially serious injury. Obviously we're not going to win every game. "Hopefully they will now rally together and get behind us".

Following the opening goal from Ashley Barnes, Hammers captain Noble was confronted by an angry supporter but referee Lee Mason witnessed the incident at the time and the issue is likely to be closed. "He ran on the pitch and I wouldn't say I felt threatened - but if someone approaches me I'm going to look after myself". Get some points and stay in the league and make some decisions in the summer.

"If I never play for the club again I'm still going to feel the way I do".

"That is why probably I acted the way I did today as I know there are a lot of people at the club who really care how we get on, the results".

"He's devastated. You never want to take matters into your own hands the way he did". It was a frightful, frightening scene and in the end, quite rightly, the West Ham staff coaxed people back into the boardroom before the final whistle because everybody was absolutely devastated by what might have happened.
