Dropping Mark Noble will prove to be a good move for Hammers in the long run

Dropping Mark Noble will prove to be a good move for Hammers in the long run

After a summer spending spree which saw the club bring in 11 players for £93.47 million, the Hammers faithful will be expecting to have a season much better than their torrid 2017/18 campaign.

The Hammers broke their transfer record twice over the summer on Issa Diop and then on Felipe Anderson.

With Manuel Pellegrini at the helm, West Ham are hoping to enter an era of success to fit their move to the Olympic Stadium.

Under the introduction of a new era, West Ham must be prepared to cut away some of their old stalwarts.

According to the Daily Mail, Pellegrini is considering dropping club captain Mark Noble, which may come as a bit of a shock to the West Ham fans.

The Breakdown

Since breaking into the first-team in 2004, Mark Noble has remained a mainstay in the team and is an incredibly popular player among the fans.

However, after two games, the long-term West Ham man’s role is now uncertain. In truth, against Bournemouth and Liverpool Noble looked like he struggled to get around the pitch and was constantly exposed.

With Carlos Sanchez and Pedro Obiang waiting in the wings, there is no doubt that Pellegrini needs to switch Noble out.

West Ham need two mobile central midfielders to sit at the base and cover the defence of midfield in order to allow Wilshere the time as a ten, something Noble doesn’t provide.

The Hammers play Arsenal this weekend and need to pick up their first points of the season. Removing Mark Noble from the team might just do that.

What do you think West Ham fans?
