Noble: ‘We will have to get used to new boss’

nobesRealist Mark Noble is coming to terms with the presence of a new boss in the dressing room.

However, after the 3-3 draw against Peterborough the midfelder made it clear they would take a while to adapt to Slaven Bilic’s footballing philosophy he said: “We’ve got a new manager and new ways and the lads will have to get used to it.”

He told the official site: “Once the lads get used to it, the new manager will drill in to us how he wants us to play and how we’re going to gel together.

“Slaven is an approachable man and he has made it clear that we can approach him. He’s been fantastic up until now but it’s still pre-season so it’s not normally well into the season that you see the real character of the manager.

“We had Sam (Allardyce) for four years and he did fantastically for the club after getting us promoted and then three more years in the Premier League.

“But there are now a bunch of new staff and new players and I’m looking forward to working with them all.”

  1. Noble took his goal really well yesterday, but then gave a really bad penalty away. Lucky it’s only the first freindly lol
    Samuelsen also got a peach of a goal, and I’m already dreaming of a new Devonshire. If only……..

  2. Nobles ,s missing Hippo,probably keeping his options open because of Hippo comes back it might open a door,
    Slav was happy with him that’s all he should worry about,

  3. Why the hell does Noble keep on praising the dinosaur

  4. We keep being told to move on and not bring up BFS,
    How can we do that when players like Noble keep bringing him back to mind,
    He owes Hippo for his nice big long contract,

  5. It does seem strange that he comes up with it again after we started pre-season. perhaps he will be told off.

  6. Of course Noble will keep praising the Slug . No other manager would have picked him or agreed a ridiculous 5 year contract . He is hoping the Slug gets a new job and comes back looking for him … If only … mind you not sure Div 1 will suit Slug and that is about Nobles level .

  7. I can’t see the issue here he’s done the bog standard praise the bloke who picks the team and complimentary quote about the former manager interview. There are players who slag off past and present managers but they’re few and far between and I can’t imagine Mark Noble ever being one of those especially on the official site.

  8. Bloody hell thats a bit harsh on Nobes that he is league one lvl,if you had said Nolan fair enough,lol

  9. Five them a chance to get BFS out of Their system, couple of weeks with Dicksi chasing them around the training ground he will be gone and forgotton,
    Really looking forward to this season.
    First time on this or any site come to that. But spent many a happy hour reading the comments for a year or two, happy times

    • Welcome aboard beachbum,we’re a friendly lot really…..umm mainly lol
      Anyone who’s positive is alright in my book

  10. Should have said Give them a chance, hate spell checker!!
