Mark Noble yellow carded on 400th appearance, to miss Sunderland & Everton games

Mark Noble marked his 400th appearance for West Ham with a yellow card that will see him miss the club’s next two games against Sunderland (away) and Everton (home). Noble’s 39th minute foul on Swansea City’s Leroy Fer (a rather unnecessary one at that) saw him collect his 10th yellow of the season, which according to the current rules, earns him a two match ban.

The more frustrating fact- the league’s yellow card “amnesty” kicks in on the second Sunday of April (April 9, 2017 for this season), and if Noble had got through this game without being booked, he would’ve avoided the ban.

Noble’s foul came just seconds after Michail Antonio injured his hamstring, leading to the latter being stretchered off and replaced by Jonathan Calleri [Read more…]

Mark Noble agrees new West Ham contract

Reports are coming out today that Mark Noble has finally put pen to paper on a new deal with West Ham United.

Noble is in the final year of his contract and West Ham needed to get this contract signed as a number of Premier League clubs were thought to have been keeping tabs on Mr. Noble with the idea of getting him for a minimal fee in January or on a free transfer next summer.

Noble, 25,  who has come through West Ham’s famous academy, has already notched up over 200 games for West Ham since making his début in a 2-0 win over Southend in the League Cup as a 17-year-old.

Last season was a stand out season for Noble who really started to shine in West Ham’s midfield and he found himself picking up West Ham’s Player of The Season gong for his efforts.

West Ham have not confirmed this news as yet, but Sky Sports are reporting Noble is to sign a three-year extension to his current deal.

This will be a huge boost to manager Sam Allardyce who would loathe to lose one of his best midfield players for nothing at the end of the season.

Great news for West Ham as Mark Noble is a local lad and has been outstanding for West Ham for a while now, who could forget his 98% pass completion ratio against Fulham!

Looking forward to the cup game against Wigan tomorrow and I hope Jarvis, Benayoun and Maiga all get a start as we need something different up front.
