‘Tough Call’ ‘His Influence Is Vital’ Fans On Twitter Discuss Whether Moyes Should Drop West Ham Talisman

West Ham captain Mark Noble is getting near the end of his career. At 33 years of age, it is fair to say that he doesn’t have much time left at the top.

With Tomas Soucek and Declan Rice both able to play in deeper roles, there has been some debate on Twitter among fans whether the Hammers legend should perhaps be benched for the final nine fixtures of the season:

Considering West Ham are in a relegation battle, it would be a massive surprise if manager David Moyes opted to keep Noble out of the starting eleven.

While the midfielder may not necessarily offer the dynamism that the likes of Soucek and Rice may provide, his experience and leadership skills will be crucial in the battle for points.

There may be an opportunity next season to gradually reduce his minutes but for this closing run of games, his presence will be needed on the pitch.
