It seems typical of West Ham United to fail to make best use of the striker they have been so desperately trying to find for the best part of a decade.
Despite that Mexico's all-time leading goalscorer has still managed nine goals, a ratio which is consistent with his excellent career of finding the back of the net.
A lack of game time saw Hernandez linked with a move away in January and the striker confirmed he wanted to leave and still might this summer, as reported by the likes of The Mirror.
The bitter irony of the situation is not lost on West Ham fans, who have been frustrated with the way both Slaven Bilic and David Moyes have handled Hernandez this season.
After years of searching for a top quality striker the Hammers finally seemed to have landed a player fitting that profile when they secured Chicharito's services for a relative bargain £16 million from Bayer Leverkusen last summer.
While he has at times looked somewhat leggy, in the box he has proved as potent as ever. Before signing the 29-year-old the world and its wife knew that all 59 of his previous goals in England - while playing for Manchester United - came from inside the box.
Quite why Bilic and less so Moyes then pushed the poacher out to a wide position where he is expected to do as much defending as attacking in what has been a poor Hammers side is anyone's guess.
Hernandez's latest goal - again coming off the bench - secured the East Londoners a precious point away at London rivals Chelsea last time out.
"Chicharito is a goal machine - he gets one chance and scores," Noble told whufc.com.
"He's probably not played as many minutes as he would have liked but probably down to the way the season has gone.
"But when you can bring him on, as soon as it fell to him I'm standing right behind him and there were about ten bodies in front, but you know he will find that spot and that's why he's the player he is."
