Three Irons in the Shirt!!!

Not during Hodgson's watch!!!

Brave Mark Noble vowed to continue to produce the stunning form that he has displayed of late undeterred by England Boss Roy Hodgson’s latest snub ahead of the pre-World Cup International friendlies. It had been widely anticipated that his sensational performances for the buoyant Hammers would inevitably lead to him adding to his 46 under age International caps with a full England debut but astonishingly, he has been overlooked in favour of a variety of geriatric never-have-beens and some stunningly average newbies!!!
                                                                       33 years young!

So what is it that Hodgson thinks that Mark lacks – undoubtedly, his loyalty in sticking with the Hammers for a season of Championship football two years ago was admirable, but has impeded his international career. However, this year we have seen him operate as ringmaster for the buoyant Hammers – orchestrating the link between defence and attack, delivering set pieces and picking up the rating as the most energetic Premiership performer for Yards covered. 


One really wonders what it is that Noble has to do to get into Roy’s plans? Luckily for West Ham, the lad is Claret and Blue through and through and seems to get what he needs from club football. For now, he must remain the Cinderella but surely his time must come soon?

And if all that's not enough, his calm penalty taking might be an asset for a side that usually gets eliminated for cracking in the inevitable penalty shoot out.
                                                                          EEEasy for Noble!


  1. Which one is off Daktari???

  2. Top piece. Should have been a cert but real quality like Cleverly will no doubt nick one of the spots !!
