Cole: I always want to have Mark Noble on my side

West Ham United striker Carlton Cole has suggested Mark Noble is someone he'd always want to have on his team.

West Ham United striker Carlton Cole told the club’s website that teammate Mark Noble is the sort of player he would always want to have on his side.

Noble is one of the most experienced midfielder in Sam Allardyce’s squad and a player who has been used extensively by the boss throughout this season.

Cole has suggested that he has all of the qualities any team could hope for in a midfielder.

“He’s (Mark Noble) a quality player. He twists and turns, he gets a lot of work done in midfield and he scores goals so you always want to have him in your side,” said Cole.

Noble signed a new contract at the Hammers earlier this season, as confirmed by the club’s website, which suggests that he’s going to be a regular fixture in the middle of West Ham’s side for the next few years.

He won’t be at all pleased with the form that he’s personally shown this season as well as the form the club have displayed since the turn of the year.

West Ham have dropped down from a position where they looked as though they would be competing for a place in Europe, but it’s important they don’t let the season fizzle out.

Noble is someone who can set the standard in the middle of the team and someone who will be important in the final two games against Everton and Newcastle.
