Noble: “No reason why we can’t do United”

MarkNobleMark Noble believes Man United have “probably flown a little bit under the radar” as they keep nicking wins and is looking forward to the game tomorrow.

He said: “Our place is a bit of a fortress now and everyone is looking forward to it.We’re not afraid of any of the big teams and we know if we play to how we can play, we have every chance of winning the game.

Speaking to www.whufc.com he said: “It’s a long way away from last season when we went into these games in the bottom three and a little bit worried about what the score was going to be.

“We can enjoy these games now with the points we’ve got. Man to man it’s not much of a gulf these days compared to a couple of years ago.

“Hopefully we’ll get our players back out on the pitch and ready to go and we can go out and give them a proper go.

If we get them out there then we’ve beat a lot of big teams at our place and there is no reason we can’t do Man U as well.”

  1. Ill give you a reason Mark – BFS

  2. If nolan starts against man u then we have no chance..

  3. So the players believe,shame the manager doesn’t. Typical allardyce

  4. Im sure Nolan will start.In Sams world he is undropable,which will totally screw up the chances of sakho & valencia up top,assumimg they play together.Because instead of having Downing behind them they will have that sluggish lump & Downing being ineffective on one of the wings.Mind you it wouldnt surprise me to see Cole start with Sakho or Valencia.Nothing surprises me anymore with BFS & his great team selections & formations.Most frustrating thing is the fact that Sam is so stats driven,but clearly turns a blind eye to Nolans stats.Everyone can see he is caring extra weight & has no mobility anymore.Maybe BFS only looks at the stats involving Nolans mouth,because thats the only thing that actually does anything each match.His turbo gob never stops snarling at referees & assistants.Pity his legs & feet cant do as much work as his mouth.

  5. My first instinct is to say that Song and Kauyate must start in midfield and Downing must command the game at the tip of the diamond.

    Then I would be happy for Sakho and Valencia to frighten the manc’s defence with their pace. Then when they tire or Valencia’s poor form continues AC can either come on or start and absolutely batter a very poor back line.

    But all this relies on our defensive injuries as I fear a very winable game may be decided before a ball is kicked due to the injuries to our central defenders.

    Heart says 2-1 hammers! COYI!
