Noble - one more season?
On the back of his superb performance against Man City, there’s talk of Noble not retiring at the end of this season after all and giving us one more season.

It’s clear that he’s still got exceptional fitness levels, running rings around players 10 years his junior and I think he’s deputised expertly when called upon this season.

So if we get in Europe again next season, I can see him again being a valuable commodity as a squad player who can come in when called upon.

Thoughts?

If we win a trophy and finsih well why would he want to carry on. Especially as he will be guranteed a coaching position.
I did love his Cruyff turn , his ball to Yarmo penalty and some of his passes were class. Think his long ball out to Coufal for the cross to Perkins was Gerrard Class.

Re: Noble - one more season?
NO but we should keep him at the club in a coaching role of some sort

Re: Noble - one more season?
Obviously, Noble is one of our ‘own’, but I remember too often him being dispossessed and giving away goals or his lunges on the edge of the penalty giving away free kicks that have led to goals.

Power to his elbow but he should stick with his decision, otherwise his legacy might be tarnished, like Bobby Moore’s during his final season with us when he made one too many mistakes.

Re: Noble - one more season?
Noble looked good because Vienna was shit and Soucek bossed the midfield.
Should have played one from the u23 instead.

No but keep him on with coaching team.

Re: Noble - one more season?
He did a Cruyff turn against Vienna and surprised me with his pace to get away from the defender.

A few mins later, he tried it again and conceded possession in our third.

Playing a part with the club will be good, unless he fancies a bit of time off and return later

Re: Noble - one more season?
If he wants one more season, who can argue with that. He Will know it will be as a bit part player. He doesn't want to leave as things are at the moment and wants to be involved.

If handled and managed in the right way, I am happy with that and just hope his last playing game is at home in front of 60,000 West Ham fans.

Re: Noble - one more season?
Bossing the midfeild against Rapid Vienna ain't the same as against most PL teams.

So no.

Re: Noble - one more season?
Noble was excellent last night but best to call it a day on a high... would be fantastic if he and Declan can lift a trophy together this season.

Should definitely be a place on the coaching staff for him next season though, with the U23s perhaps.

Re: Noble - one more season?
So tempting to say yes. He has words in ears and is an excellent big Brother/kindly Uncle to Declans current relevant approach to keeping the team together.

But ultimately This season is proving to be just the right mix of practicality and sentimentality and I want to remember him like that as a player, not was loyal but tried to play too long and was ineffective at the end.

If he still wants to play someone mentioned MLS, think that would be a fitting finale but, ultimately badges and sticking around the backroom please.

⚒ thought you were watching the other game?

Re: Noble - one more season?
He retired 4 seasons ago

Lee Trundle 10:35 Fri Nov 26
Re: Noble - one more season?
I reckon a season or 2 somewhere like the MLS is pretty much nailed on, for him.

He deserves it. A nice top up for the retirement fund, and some decent weather.

A vintage performance by our captain last night.

Alfs 1:46 Fri Nov 26
Re: Noble - one more season?
He'll retire and move to the back room as a coach with an eye on being a future manager.

Re: Noble - one more season?
Should he do a Brooking?

Brooking retired from us when he thought he was too old, but played for a year for Cork City.

And then for ages as an amateur for Havering Nalgo.

Be odd seeing him play for someone else, even if not against us.

Re: Noble - one more season?
He should retire this season offcially.

However become a back up player/ coach

Imagine being a spurs fan who goes out of own way to create this account and spend half your day on another clubs forum. Seriously can we get help for him?
