Maybe get nobes to have a word with Prince Albert of Monoco to invest in the club as he was in a box at Sundays game thru nobes invitation :D
Wonder how that actually came about. Apparently MN said that Prince Albert had contacted him and said he'd like to be at his last game. I never suspected MN had friends in such high places.

Hi, Mark, it's Albert here, any chance of a ticket for the game on Sunday mate :smiler:

I'm sure they said on the commentary that they're both friends with Payet, and Prince Albert contacted him via Dimi.

I stand to be corrected if that's not the case - but I'm almost certain that's what was said.

Something along the lines of he started following West Ham when Payet was at the club and has been a fan ever since.

I now have images of them as a pair of heads in jars, like in Futurama, watching on from the box as Noble's grandson looses a foot race.

Correct - so we can add His Serene Highness to the long list of Royal Irons...

Mark went into a beauty parlour recommended by Rebekah Vardy and asked for a Prince Albert.

Think it got lost in translation.

Meanwhile, West Ham are still rumoured to be interested in Lingard.
