Well if IL was to put the boot in it'd mean he'd have to fund Nobby's departure. Knowing a) IL's desire to run the club as a business and therefore not fund it out of his chequebook and b) Many Wigan fan's displeasure at Nobby: Whip round at the next home game?!


Given Noble is out of contract at the end of the season the longer he stays in 2009 the cheaper it gets to fire him as IL would have less of this years wages still left to pay.

So here is a prediction.

IL won't fire him until at least half way through the season regardless of results assuming we play badly.

Then with not long of the season left IL will act. It will look like he has done what the fans have asked and got rid of an under performing coach so his standing with the fans goes up and Nobby takes the blame.

In reality all he will have done is wait until it's cheap enough to fire him!

Cynical me?

Of course a miracle could happen and Sunday was a mere blip and we go one to win the win the CC or the GF having blooded several youngsters along the way. Now where is that emoticon of a flying pig?

I agree with Nobby. Cut out all this passing that way the fools on the pitch cant drop it! Get the opposition into a forward orientated arm wrestle.

We dropped the ball because we didn't pass it.
The opposition knew who was going to take it up and met him with a gang tackle whose impact made us lose the ball.
I only remember us losing the ball in the tackle.

I sometimes what some posters are sniffing?! You are bang on the money, we did not drop ball by not being able to catch we generally lose the ball in contact, due to garbage technique, something that could and should have been sorted by the coach and also because the defence knows exactly who is getting the ball and is able to pressure them/fully comitt to the tackle as there is nobody else running a support/dummy line!


As for the arm wrestle we always engage them in this RHJ and 9 times out of 10 we lose that arm wrestle and that is the problem Noble does not know anyother way to play than this.

RHJ I would suggest the next step for us in your opinion would be to have 5 scoots and a kick as that is the only simpler game plan than we are employing at the minute.

The next few performances are key i think he can get away with losing if we perform to a reasonable standard.

I appreciate i will get slated for this but i hope the next 3 or 4 games we do under perform and get snotted so that IL's hand is forced.

I was all for giving Noble a go this year, but the indication is nothing has changed.

I did have to smile on Sunday at 2 attempted moves that were put on when the ball was spread from the right to the left, they were the slowest, most laboured "moves" i have ever seenwith the people involved not knowing where the hell they were meant to run or who to draw.

Enough is enough in my opinion.


And what if we play brilliant rugby tomorrow and thrash Hull 40-0?

fantastic, so long as it is not followed by a run of garbage performances, which sadly seems to be the case at the moment.

Noble cannot continue living off out of the blue 1 off performances.
