    I seriously don't remember anyone ever claiming Mark freaking Noble was going to be better than Cesc.
    And I've been on various West Ham forums for a over a decade.

    Noble (like James Tomkins around the same time) was hyped a lot early on. I agree he should have been capped, because for my money one of England's problems has been their tendency to try and stack their midfield with players who want to run the show rather than finding a balance between stars and supporting players. Noble, I suspect, would have been happy to have fulfilled the latter role and comfortable in it. At his best he has the virtue of keeping play simple in order to ensure possession keeps circulating. There's much to be said for that style, particularly at international level.
