Redknapp: ‘Noble’s a Hammers lifer’

Mark NobleHarry Redknapp has this evening paid tribute to Mark Noble declaring: “The boy is claret and blue through and through  – I don’t believe he will ever leave the club.”

Speaking to ClaretandHugh exclusively, Redknapp  paid tribute to the Canning Town-born Hammer and explained why no club had ever made a serious move for him.

Redknapp-managed Queens Park Rangers arrive at Upton Park on Sunday with Noble facing a fitness race on his shin/calf problem.

But the former Hammers boss was keen to pay tribute to a player for whom he says he has always had a great admiration.

He said: “Mark is a throwback to the days when club loyalty was everything and it’s really refreshing to see.

“People have often wondered and asked why no club has come in for such a good player but the answer is obvious, he’s a Hammer to his backbone.

“I believe at one time I was told there was some interest from  Fulham but I just don’t see it happening.

“For me he’s a top player. I have a lot of admiration for him and his game. I can’t ever see him moving on.”

  1. Heis alifer because no one else wants him . He is loyal but of very average ability .

    • SORRY bubbles think your way off beam here.. Has a lot more ability than you and many others fail to recognise. Leaves everything on the pitch. I can’t understand why so many are willing to give him stick, yeah there’s classier players, BUT when fit he’s No1 on my team sheet.. Still if we all agreed on everything and every player would be a sad world.
      ONE thing we can agree on!! COYI. heres hoping for a great season.

  2. I rate him as good as any,showing loyalty to a club is a rare quality these days.His work rate is second to none,the only thing i wished was that he shot more,but this season,early doors,he has done just that.Keep up the good work Mark. C.O.Y.I.

  3. You are as dull as Noble . He is average at best .. one paced..SLOW … cant pass forward .. cant shoot … cant tackle …. wastes free kicks and corners . In fact he is awful .
