QPR's Barton to West Ham, Noble to Sunderland?
West Ham fans who have campaigned against Noble for years may be about to get their just deserts with rumours that we have revived interest in signing Joey Barton. The deal would only make sense if Allardyce is considering cashing in on Noble.
Di Canio, of course, has seen a lot of Noble, watching West Ham games over the years. He understands Noble's qualities and knows that he is a leader on the pitch. Allardyce has been a fan up until now, but he has worked with Barton before so it is hard to dismiss the story out of hand. That said, we have been linked with Barton more often than we have been linked with Beckham, so this may still be lazy journalism. I hope so!
Just imagine Barton, Carroll and Morrison in the same dressing room. Never mind Hull City Tigers, we could rebrand as West Ham Fight Club or West Ham Total C**TS.
Of course, the logical move would be for Barton to link up with Di Canio at Sunderland. They are both big on fascist salutes after all!
