Rice on Noble and Noble on Rice; there is a little loyalty left in football
Deserved a new thread because of the depressing money stuff and lack of loyalty this week.

West Ham captain Mark Noble speaking to Sky Sports:

It was hard work. I thought we played brilliantly in the first half without an end product and I am delighted for this young man to score the goal. You could hear it from the fans as well. It has been a special six months for Declan, after signing his new deal with the club. I would be surprised if he sleeps tonight. He is a special talent and keeps working hard. If any young footballers across the country need someone to look up to, Declan's your man.

Declan Rice speaking to Sky Sports:

I can't put it into the words. The lads are always on at me to take the shot on more. I have been getting into the box more recently and I was gutted with missing the header in the first half.

I can't speak highly enough about Mark, he has helped me every day since I broke into the team three years ago with little pointers in training and whatever.

Fair point missed that you were comparing him to Moore.

Though you meant developing generally in the prem .

We were comparing Rice's development and career to that of Moore's. Now whilst it is not likely that Rice will ever emulate the career of "Sir Bobby" even if he does pick England. If Rice were to pick Eire he can definitely forget about captaining a World Cup winning team!

Also, I am surprised that anyone who supports West Ham thinks Roy Keane in any way matches up to Bobby Moore!
AIthough I concede that if Rice matches Keane as a player he won't be doing badly (it just means in a year or two's time he will have signed for Man Utd.)

If I may add, it's so good to know that in El Pel, we at last have a coach who knows how to build on that youthful joy rather that trying to coach it out of a player as so many still would (and be called great managers by many).

"But if Rice wants to really compete he will have to opt for England" Roy Keane seemed to do ok not that I am advocating him picking Ireland but I think playing for either makes no difference to how you develop.

The only thing we need to do with Declan is introduce him to a hairdresser that doesn't need a guide dog

Re: Rice on Noble and Noble on Rice; there is a little loyalty left in football
gph & lato

Just to clarify I wasn’t really making a big deal about their respective debuts. Just stating the facts of their careers.Of course there was no subs back in 58 but I suppose you could consider that Rice didn’t get a start. Unlike say Reece Oxford but it doesn’t necessarily say much about how players develop or not. But for what it is worth imo there is not much between them in their respective development at this time. But if Rice wants to really compete he will have to opt for England

I wish Nobles name was Noodle instead could you imagine the laughs we would have talking about Rice and Noodle respecting each other.

Re: Rice on Noble and Noble on Rice; there is a little loyalty left in football
Not at all - there was no way of gradually introducing players in the era when Bobby made his debut.

It wasn't a choice to give him the full 90 mins

Re: Rice on Noble and Noble on Rice; there is a little loyalty left in football
easthammer - subs weren't allowed until 1965 in the Football League.

The only way Bobby could've made his debut was for the full match.

I think you misread easthammers post.......he was referring to Declans 90th minute substitute debut.

The only thing missing from Declans game is goals, now he has got one lets hope it is the first of many in a West Ham shirt

Russ you nailed it I’m still buzzing from Saturday what an inspirational moment we had been waiting for that moment for months it was special and proper West Ham

Russ of the BML 11:06 Mon Jan 14
Re: Rice on Noble and Noble on Rice; there is a little loyalty left in football
I have to say that Rice's reaction to scoring that goal was one of the most beautiful moments I have witnessed as a West Ham fan. To see such genuine delight and pure and utter joy on a young mans face to score a goal has gone a long way to returning my faith in football.

In an industry that is now ruled by money, agents, player power, millionaire players, image rights and marketing; to see the simple joy of that young man warmed my heart.

He looked like a young boy over a school field scoring his first goal for his new under 11's side.

It was a truly beautiful and inspirational moment.

Re: Rice on Noble and Noble on Rice; there is a little loyalty left in football
Rice is special, very special. Our best passer in midfield, he reads the play best. Defensively minded he is the best. Breaks up and regains the ball so many times. Moves the ball quick, always picks the right pass. Hopefully now can add some goals but think if he keeps going like this end of next season he will be off to a champions league contender.

Good stuff...local lads and kids from the youth team are the life blood of any team...gives the fans far more pride than some typical foreign mercenary jumping on board...
