Noble Out for a Month
Mark Noble has been ruled out for a month after having surgery to remove his appendix last night.
This is really bad news for West Ham. Not only has Noble looked really good in the last couple of games West Ham are also really light in central midfield. Thomas Hitzlsperger is also ruled out until the new year which leaves West Ham with the hapless Kovac to partner Parker.
West Ham really need to pick up points in November. That task now look a lot harder. I'm beginning to think that we are doomed to relegation this season.
