‘Ginge’ brutally honest on Nobes’ future

James Collins has thrown a big cloud of doubt over Mark Noble’s West Ham future under Manuel Pellegrini.

And he believes that the Irons are in for a very tough season as the new boss gets to grips with the size of job he has taken on.

Ginge has wasted no time in sitting down in the pundit’s chair and was interviewed by Jermaine Jenas on Radio 5 Live this evening

And whilst admitting his fondness for his former club captain he was frank in giving his assessment on the 31 year old loyalist’s future at the London Stadium

Answering a question from Jenas he said: “I don’t think he fits what Pellegrini is looking for if I’m honest, not sure, Noble will obviously disagree but yeah it’s gonna be a tough season for us, I really feel it will be.”

  1. James Collins should have been kept at the club to help with our leaky defence. I’m sure there’s a role for loyal players of his calibre.I know Pelle has his own staff but it was shameful the way Collins was terminated.Maybe after the next 4 matches there might be a rethink.at the top?

    • About Ginges assessment of Noble? Spot on but it’s been aired on this site and others for some time that Noble is past his best.Something to offer the club? Yes again but mainly from the bench. IMHO

  2. One thing that I liked about Moyes was that he looked at how to get the best out of the players at his disposal – e.g. what he did with Masuaku by moving to a wingback system

    Older less mobile midfielders have done well in the Premier League (e.g. Gareth Barry, DUncan Fletcher and previously Gary McAllister) – so I believe there is still a place for Noble – but maybe Ginge is right not in a Pellegrini team
