I have been very critical of him in the past

However past couple games he been top notch

For me it highlights yes rice is class but that it isn't keeping him fit that's key it's soucek

Noble doesn't look off the pace or lost with the big man acting as his wing man

That saving tackle which caused his injury, was the sort of tackle a captain makes.

So glad he'll be here next season.

I’m holding on to my season ticket in part to make sure I get to see him off in person.

Club captain and legend.

Bit harsh really. He’s played two really good games in a row. A few loose passes but mostly a very good replacement for Dec. I’ve said for a while he needs to play when Dec and Souchek can’t, not with them.

He was very good today. At this stage of his career he is much more suited to the deeper lying role. His lack of pace is much more prevalent when playing the Fornals role, which I don’t think he is up too any more, I really hope we get a hand ful of penalties in the next few games. It would be wonderful to see him hit 50 premier league goals.

Excellent game today however a lot of that will go down to the front three pressing and stopping Leicester playing through the midfield. Against other side he will still struggle, today we were compact enough to allow him to get into positions and pass the ball forwards. Other games I am afraid he will still get found out, but better to have him in there currently than an U23.

The guy is a club legend and has showed what this club means to him. He will always put it on the line but is certainly more effective in the position he has played all his career.

He deserves so much more than 'humble pie' after the fact after all this time, he deserved some faith and respect from the start in my view.

Well played by notes let's hope the arm us ok.
Proper hammer no rolling around unlike son at spurs who nearly died after that vicious attack. That is the difference between our two clubs !

We need noble back as moyes clearly doesn't rate Coventry?
Johnson coming on fir noble and plating another position !

We are due some pens fir sure . What is it, two all season?

Maybe because we aren't a diving cheating club?

PROUD OF MY HAMMERS

Why is it crap? If you take 5/10 as an average performance then 6 is above average which is what I would say he has produced.

Pleasantly surprised over the last couple of days. Think that time on the bench has got him stoked.

Well done Nobes. I've loved him over the years and I want him to do well in his final year, so I was a bit disappointed when personally I thought he was a bit off the pace against Wolves. But against Leicester he returned to the old Nobes, bustling around midfield, marshalling the troops and putting the body on the line when needed.

He's not as good as Rice or Soucek, but as has been said ^^ when we need to replace one of them, his experience and level head means he's a better alternative than an inexperienced youngster right now.

Agree he played well but Leicester also suited him as they wanted to pass through the middle rather than run/dribble through. That's where he struggles most - if Madison(who is more inclined to run with the ball) had played in their middle t might have been harder. Still that's their issue and loss.
