Hammers duo hail support over land and sea

Wherever the Hammers play, the Claret & Blue army follow.

West Ham United's legendary away support is a key feature of the Club's matches on the road and its impact does not go unnoticed on the pitch.

Speaking at the launch of the Hammers' black 2017/18 Away kit, Mark Noble and Jose Fonte both hailed the travelling support as the best possible.

Skipper Noble said: "We take [large numbers of] away fans wherever we go - they're fantastic. When we're winning it feels like we're playing at home.

Portugal defender Fonte added: "They go the whole game supporting the team, being loud and passionate - that's what we want. We have the best fans.

"For us it's massive to have this support and we want to thank them for their commitment to the team and to the Club. Hopefully we can give them more reasons to smile, to be happy and more wins."
