Who'd have thought we'd all be sweating on his fitness for the following weekend now. The general mood when Rice was first crocked was "anyone but Noble", but he's come in and looked very solid in the defensive mid position. I think the issue comes when he's put in midfield alongside Rice and Soucek. It's obviously too defensive then.

Hopefully, his elbow injury isn't bad and he'll be okay for Saturday. The fact he wasn't moving his arm though suggested to me that it looked something more than an impact injury, but I'm obv no doctor.

Mark needs 1 more PL app to equal Kevin Nolan's record of most premier league games for an uncapped Englishman (401).

The most PL apps for an uncapped player of any nationality is Sylvain Distin (469). Doubt Noble will get anywhere near that. Can't see him staying in the PL beyond next season.

Disgraceful he has never got a cap, in an age where 12 year-old players with little or no senior appearances seem to get picked the fact he never even got to play in a friendly is just wrong.

When he finished captaining the under 21s there were just too many favourites - Gerrard, lampard, scholes etc later, briefly, he had a chance on form but not on age.

Still. Good company with bonzo and dicksy.

If we make European football, I think our Mark would have one hell of a swansong.
Given the much slower pace of European football, he would have a lot more time on the ball to able to ping accurate passes about, and his lack of pace wouldn't be such an issue as it is in the Premier league.
Playing behind Rice and Soucek (we will keep them both), with Lingard (we will get him too), and two other 'attackers up top, he literally will be able to play the 'Cockney Pirlo' role, and I think rather effectively.

I owe you a huge apology Mark, saying you were finished and not even Championship standard. You did deserve much more respect than that. I thought you were brilliant against Leicester City and Wolves. I won't be so worried about you starting for West Ham again, bravo. :crest:

That’s fair enough, but Winks, Huddlestone, Cleverley, Loftus-Cheek? Scandalous.

Tom Cleverly somehow won 13 caps.

Mark was never truly international class, I think his physicality let him down, but he absolutely should've picked up 1 or 2 caps, especially when you consider all the midfielders who've won caps during his time: Cleverly, Livermore, Huddlestone, Chalobah, Rodwell, Barton, Jarvis all spring to mind. I'm sure there's more

This is why I think he would have been brilliant for England, his footballing intelligence would have shone in international football... That's why we were after him, his grandparents are from Cork & I know he had alot of family pressure to take Ireland up on their offer after he had been overlooked by England for so many years..
In fairness to Mark, his reason for turning us down was that he wouldn't feel right taking an Ireland shirt off a lad that grew up dreaming of representing Ireland when his heart lay elsewhere... I respected him even more because of that...

Noble as Captain of our team in Europe as we charge to glory would be a hell of a way to finish his career...and nothing more than he deserves.

‘Look, boss, I’m never going to be banging on your door at the age of 33, 34, asking why I’m not playing. I’m here, I’m your club captain, I’m here to support the players, you, and keep driving training.’

That's brilliant all round and shows everything that is good about the club at the minute. I love that it's a real mixture of different countries and cultures there too. You regularly hear about fractured dressing rooms, divided by nationality or cliques. Admittedly it's a very short video but that doesn't look the case, even more so when you look at the togetherness on the pitch.
