Noble looks back on best day of his life!

Looking back on the momentous occasion at Old Trafford at the weekend, where the Hammers clinched their Premiership status with a 1-0 win, Mark Noble said: "It was the best day of my life."

"It was unbelievable to come to Old Trafford and win to stay up," he added. "It's never been better than this. The boys have dug in and we've played as a team for the last three months.

"We're over the moon and we're going to enjoy a nice break. I can't wait for next season now! We showed we can dig in and defend against Arsenal and when we've played other teams we've showed our flair.

"Against Man United you have to fall back and defend. We did that after Tevez scored a wonderful goal and we're still in the Premier League.

"All I wanted to do was go out there and keep it simple. I just played the holding role and let Yossi and Boa Morte do the things that they do best. It's not about me; it's about the team and the Club. Everyone's buzzing."

With Curbs pinpointing the 4-3 defeat to Tottenham at Upton Park as the turning point for the Hammers' resurgence, Mark reflected on that game.

"It was a day of mixed emotions for me, I was crying afterwards but that's how I showed my emotion," he said. "I wanted to win so badly and it never happened. Obviously I scored early on and it was a rollercoaster game. But it was all worth it and we can look back on it now and say it was the catalyst for what we've done."

Premiership status secured, Mark admitted he could breathe a sigh of relief. "We're not worrying about anyone else now and next season we can prove ourselves," he said.

"We've got out of the sticky patch of the difficult second season in the Premiership and we can push on a do well and hopefully do as well as we did in the first season - or better.

"I was looking up to the fans, we had a bit of eye contact, me and my friends. It was a fantastic day, they were as happy as me. But everyone knows how important it is to this Club, being in the Premiership, and the East End is a happy place to be now."
