Collison: Nobes England call-up is no brainer

NobleFormer Hammer Jack Collison has said that Mark Noble’s call up for England should be a no brainer and says if he isn’t called up there is definitely something going on.

Speaking to MooreThanJustaPodcast as part of the Claret And Hugh interview series,  Jack told the West Ham podcast:

Nobes has been fantastic, he has probably played under seven or eight managers now and he has always been a regular and even more so this season.  After his goal (at the weekend) it just shows that with a little push over the line he might get an England call before too long, you never know!”

“It’s a no brainer, especially with the type and brand of football West Ham are playing at the moment. I think he would slot in there very easily considering that midfield is a very competitive place to try to get in with the likes of Dele Alli and Ross Barkley. I think Nobes has shown he can hold his own at any level with the amount of games he has played and the way he is driving West Ham forward at the moment and if he doesn’t get a call up there is definitely something going on there!”

  1. I love Mark like all our players but no brainer are you sure,
    He is a plodder with a big heart,but does not have international class,Ali and Barkley would gat in our team before Mark,
    Yes if you compare him to Milner or Henderson then he is in with a shout but with Sterling,
    Ox Chamb,Walcott Delph alongside Rooney with Kane up top by himself
    Mark does not fit in to that style of play,
    Sorry do not agree there are loads of players like Mark and most are slightly better plus Big Roy love Liverpoor players and Milner must pick the soap up in the shower as he is rubbish and offers England nada

  2. Yes, hardly a non-brainer – there’s Henderson, Milner, Barclay, Delph, Shelvey, Sterling, Carrick, Oxlade-Chamberlain umm that’s all I can think off the top of my head – I’m afraid that they all would be ahead of Mark Noble in the pecking order!

    Oh, yes there’s also the guy from Leicester whose name escapes me at the moment!

  3. Noble is ahead of Drinkwater imo, but sadly not the rest, he’s our good old mark simple as…

  4. l think that if Obiang, Kouyate and Song (Noble’s competition at WHU) were English, they would all have been capped already.

  5. Noble is not in the top 10 English midfielders . Recently he has upped his game to 5/10. Before that he was consistent …consistently the worse player on the park . He is slow and cumbersum . ( good goal but how often ?? ) He wastes free kicks and corners and only passes sideways or back . He is poor .

  6. Mark Noble deserves a call up for England , even if it’s only a friendly . But the fact that Hodgson is ignoring him completely is more proof that he is determined to stear away from any West Ham representation in the England squad . He has consistently shunned West Ham . . Hell , Tompkins , also deserves his chance . The problem here is pychological ; he does’nt want West Ham because through West Ham England won their only World Cup and he can’t live with the idea of it happening again . No matter how well ( and I challenge anyone to say that Noble & Tompins are not playing consistently well ) our players are playing Hodgson will for the spite of it refuse to select any of them . The memory of 66 must be a nightmare for Hodgson for some inexplicable reason .!,
    I say Sack him before it’s too late because he most certainly won’t leave of his own accord .
    There is no solid reason to ignore players who have played consistently well in the Premiership for years and select fresh faces who have only been playing for a relatively short time . It makes no sense at all . He is a mess of a Manager with no clue what so ever.

  7. Remember how England had a massive problem on the right with injuries and no-one believed Trevor Sinclair could cut it?…Then wallop: He turned out to be a revelation, and lit up the team. I reckon Noble should be given a chance. Nothing to lose; everything to gain. His massive consistancy demands that at the very least. Give him a go; then it is down to him.

  8. Thanks Kevin …Your conspiracy theory made me laugh on a wet cold morning … REALLY?????? get a life . Noble is no where near good enough and Tomkins isnt in our best team . .
