Joyous Noble celebrates “100 touches”

Mark Noble is finding playing under Manuel Pellegrini a real “joy.”

The skipper was named yesterday (Thurs) as a very important player to the boss and has responded by talking of his enjoyment of being involved in the new Hammers regime.

Of the Aston Villa game he said: “You can imagine, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I must have had over 100 touches, which is nice. It’s nice to come in and play like that.

“It was a joy to play in on Wednesday night. It’s only pre-season and I’ve been through a lot of these now and it’s all about the players gelling together, as we’ve got so many new players coming in and they’re finding their feet. It’s just a case of getting the players ready for the new season.

“You know you can’t really gauge from pre-season how the season is going to go, but the big one is Liverpool away and that’s what everyone is working towards.”

And discussing record signing Felipe Anderson he added: “You know Felipe has got all sorts of ability and I told him just to go out and enjoy himself. He started a little bit nervous, but then he played some fantastic passes. You can see how much quality he’s got.

“With Fabian, (Balbuena) you see exactly what he is. He’s a proper defender and is good on the ball and really good at passing out from the back.

“The second goal summed the performance up, really. If I was sitting there watching it, I’d have thoroughly enjoyed it.”

  1. Rumours on the net that we have agreed a loan with an obliged to buy deal with Sampdoria for Obiang and another mentioning Dennis Praet going in the opposite direction. Hugh you heard any of these or know if they are true ?
