Captain Fantastic is a nickname usually reserved strictly for Steven Gerrard.
But at West Ham they have a skipper who truly lives and breathes the club.
Because Mark Noble is Mr West Ham and has embodied everything about the Hammers since his debut 12 years ago.
So who would it be to score the goal that effectively clinched safety for West Ham for another season?
Noble has his critics, slammed for his lack of creativity and an undeniable lack of pace in his latter years.
But today he rolled back the years with a thumping volley against Leicester.
After Joao Mario’s free kick was headed away by a Foxes defender, Noble was perched perfectly on the angle 30 yards out.
Even the most ambitious of West Ham fans won’t have predicted what happened next, with the captain firing an unstoppable drive back across Ben Hamer in the Leicester goal and into the far corner.
In true Gerrard style.
Noble immediately ran over to the travelling away fans to lap up their adulation on a momentous day for the club as they clinched a 2-0 win.
On the plane to Russia? Probably not, but Noble will savour this moment for years to come.
