The Noble critics, meanwhile, might be interested to learn that Noble has already covered 26.95 miles in the first four games, the second highest total in the division! With that level of commitment, perhaps it is no wonder Allardyce rates him.
Noble has also made him self so available to team mates that they have passed to him 172 times already this season, the highest for any player in the squad. If nothing else, this proves that Noble is the glue that is holding the team together. Glue may not be glamorous, but without it, things fall apart!
