That’s not what his game is built around regardless of whether you think he’s good enough. One thing is clear and consistent - every year people are convinced his time is up and he won’t be in the first team but he proves you wrong. This may well be the year that he is ousted from the first team but you can’t say I told you so when you’ve been saying the same thing for 5 seasons.

Not sure I can see that. I agree that it would make us more solid in the middle, but that would leave us playing three centre halves, Manny tends to go for four across the back, no ?

How Noble fits in with the new manager is an interesting one. He’s been a automatic first choice for all our managers since he broke through. I personally think he has been struggling since we arrived at Stratford.

With zero evidence I have had a hunch he might be a problem. As a former manager of teams I have seen mostly productive teams with good morale. People that would literally risk their lives for each other. Occasionally I’ve seen awful teams. A small cluster of bad eggs ruining it for everyone else.

Since that last game at the Upton Park the squad has been ****ed up. Dysfunctional. I have witnessed what I believe to be a poor culture with divisions. The way Antonio was hung out to dry after palace was poor show. Nobel’s attack on one of our own fans was awful. All that bollox of shaking everyone’s and their mother hand Every Day in training? Laughable.

As I said. I have zero evidence other than a hunch and 30 years of managing teams that Noble might have to go this summer. Possibly winston as well.

noble is a good squad player. no one will buy him 31, slowing down, poor last season. He is also on a long big contract for another 3 years so he wont be in a hurry to leave either. keep and play in cups and as a sub.

The Noble small gang out again, no one knows yet how players we bring in will mix, you need a real steady hand on the pitch to keep control! Mark still has an important part to play, and its rubbish he has been poor since we moved, he played such an important role keeping us away from the relegation fight! More important players to move out first, not even fit to be in bench at the salary on!

Noble has a hugely important role to play next season, clearly a few more ins & outs this summer, need Noble to knit the dressing room firstly, and maybe on the pitch for us.

I am pretty sure Pellers will know how important Noble is to us next season, even f we buy 6 more players and he thinks Noble is a sub, Noble is an integral part of next season on & off the pitch.

He’s out best centre mid but I think that has a lot to do with the massive underinvestment we’ve made in that position under the Dave’s. Kouyate and Obiang were what, 12 million combined? Was hoping for a change this summer but I expect Noble to be starting by Christmas.

if we sign Wilshire Anderson and a def midfielder noble wont start premier games but will cup games. as stated he has a big role ahead but not necessarily on the pitch.

Is it time for the annual “Sell him to Stoke for 8 million” thread, with the Mystic Megs proclaiming him done, despite the last 24 managers here selecting him?!?

Comes around faster every year!

Will be interesting to see what role Pellegrini wants Noble to have. I'd put my money on him being placed slightly behind the main enforcer in midfield, the player our centrehalves would be looking for when we play out from the back. Can't see the manager dropping him in the coming season.

Good point, it will be interesting to see Noble's role under Pel boy.

I think that for this season at least he will still be involved regularly. End of the day Nobes is a decent Prem midfielder with a strong affiliation with the club. Pellers will need someone with a connection to the club at least for the interim. If he came in and got rid of him I think that the general feeling would be a negative.

I do believe we will sign a decent midfielder but I don't think it would be at detriment to Noble. Maybe next season....

I don't think we should ever sell Nobes unless he wishes to leave. If we ever get to the fabled next level then I don't necessarily he would be a starter but be is more than decent squad player for a top 10 team.

If he doesn't have to do the work of 3 men, we might see the best of him this year.

Considering that we're not in the market for a DM, and at the same time planning to play an open attacking game, I don't think that's very likely. He'll have his work cut out.

Whilst he wasn't in the running for HOTY I thought Noble had a very good season once he was back in the team. Whilst he's getting older and can't last forever I have seen nothing to suggest he should not be in the running for a starting spot next season. It's an unglamorous but essential position that he plays and he fills it well...plus there are all the club skipper related benefits of having him in the squad.

Eventually all the naysayers will be right, but I hope he has a couple more seasons in him. If we sign someone better, great, but that will be costly and I don't see the need right now...the budget would be better prioritised towards a creative midfielder and a striker to replace Chicarito (I just don't rate him worth the huge wage costs) and those players will be expensive. Let's not spend money replacing Noble where it isn't needed (yet).
