Noble didn’t like what he heard from Hammer

Mark Noble didn’t like what he heard in the Hammers dressing room after the so hard to take defeat by Liverpool last night.

The captain and the team instead were left feeling sorry for a forlorn figure who sat quietly handing out apologies for the mistakes that he had made,

Inevitably, that person was Lukasz Fabianski who had the worst game of his career at the club after a series of often legendary performances which have ensured the Irons won points.

But after definitely being responsible for the first two goals and possibly the third he was left to reflect on errors which are building into season-long catalogue of disasters.

But on this occasion it also stopped us enjoying a victory which would go down as one of our greatest – it wasn’t to be and the Hammers stopper was clearly as low as a snake’s belly.

“There have been many a time when I have walked in the changing room and said ‘thank you’ for the saves he has pulled off,” Noble told Sky Sports. “As I said, it’s part of football. But this season individual errors have cost us a lot of points.

“He said to the lads [sorry], he doesn’t need to do that, everyone makes mistakes. It’s football. We all make mistakes in life and that’s what happens.

“He came in and said ‘sorry’ but, for me, I don’t like it. I don’t want him to do that because he has saved us many a time.”

  1. Exactly what I said to my mate who suggested he should walk home from Liverpool. I explained that if it wasn’t for him, we’d have been in a far worse position since he arrived with us. You only have to see what happened when he got injured. Everyone has a bad day. Nobody expected us to win – including us – so losing doesn’t bother me. I just wanted a gutsy performance – to stand up and be counted – and we got that. Great to see Felipe back. He was brilliant before understably tiring. Well done lads.

  2. Unfortunately individual errors are costing us dearly… Injury curse continues and Moyes should be grilled about Fornals saga and the fact he brought on Haller (disaster) before Bowen.. Here is a player with decent pace, loves to take on players etc… For pity sake stop this ” gradual” introduction theory for Bowen… He is a must to start every game… Still believe we need a miracle…

  3. What’s up with the skipper? You’d swear he does not know the game.
    The worst case is the player who does not feel he should apologise for anything.
    The one who does, is also the one who intends to correct his error. It also shows he is human, and mature.
    This also helps his team mates to understand how mistakes impact the teams results.
    And exactly this is what happened last night. Fab’s mistakes for the first 2 goals are the difference.
    Yes indeed, we also must applaude his awesome saves on the night, but must accept his apologies.
    Coyi. God bless Wes Ham.

  4. Happens to everybody at some point in a season.Unfortunately for us it happens in every match where somebodys individual error has cost us dear..Funny how adversity forces a managers hand too.Surely last night has taught Moyes Ngakia and Fornals need to start matches and Bowen has to be unleashed with games running out fast.24 points lost from winning positions is a worrying stat that shows little chance of changing this late on.Just seems this season is a cursed one,but last night at long last we could actually see a marked improvement.Must beat Saints with an error free display as i feel that is the match that decides our destiny.

  5. I think the team played well and he is a great keeper so get on play well next time out.

  6. Like it or not Nobes Fabianski would have been the elephant in the dressing room last night so good that he came out and owned up to costing us the game. Goalkeeping errors have basically cost us all season. Without the goalkeeping individual errors, Roberto, Martin, Fab, we would be much higher up the table and wouldn’t be fighting relegation in my opinion. Yes our defence has lost points too, but it stems from having confidence in the goalkeeper behind them does it not?

  7. As an add on to my previous comments though I have to add that Fabianski has also made some top saves to keep us in games and that personally I think Mark Noble should be the one apologising for his inability to keep hold of the ball, ineffectual passing and inability to create anything going forward in the way of assisting his team mates. I won’t blame him for the inability to cover the ground and reach the ball quickly enough though because that’s just down to declining athleticism due to his old age, and I won’t say he hasn’t got a lack of heart or desire because it’s obvious he’s doing all he is capable of.
