Nobes may have left Moyes in a selection quandry

Mark Noble did himself a massive favour at precisely the right time against Chelsea  and may, as a result, find a place in the team in what would be the biggest night of his Hammers career on Thursday.

Mark captained the team against the Blues and was bitterly disappointed to come away from the Bridge a loser.

However, such was the level of his own appointment it was something of a shock to see him substituted in the second half.

Despite that it’s more than possible that he has left an indelible mark on David Moyes’ thinking ahead of the game of our lives.

The level of his form was also such that one wondered whether he may re-think his decision to retire at the end of the season when there is clearly still much in the tank,

UEFA appears to believe that he will be involved from the start against Eintracht Frankfurt having named West Ham’s likely team to face the Bundesliga outfit.

UEFA West Ham reporter Matthew Howarth  believes Moyes will elect to play Rice in central defence on Thursday night and captain Mark Noble in midfield.

“West Ham: Areola; Johnson, Dawson, Rice, Cresswell; Souček, Noble; Bowen, Lanzini, Fornals; Antonio,” UEFA has posted as Moyes’s likely starting XI to play Glasner’s side.

Not sure we can agree with that but trying to second guess the manager is a pointless exercise although after his own performance at the weekend it’s more that reasonable to see Johnson involved.

Interesting one for sure!

  1. Seriously Noble starting, did u not see how terrible he was against Chelsea ?

    • Please stop, everybody I have spoken today said he was good and I thought so. People who have such emphatic and numerous views as yours are normally wrong on 50 pc of them. Calm down

      • Really? He was below average lol felt sorry for him at times, so out of his depth. Would be a huge mistake to play him.
