Cracking player. My Dad saw him play a few times but not myself. They're are the kind of players that are but a memory now days.

 I once went to a party at Noble's house, which was a club house in Wigmore Avenue, later sold to stave off HMRC. Lovely fella, would have been about 68.

Back then the homoginisation of accents hadn't really started... couldn't understand a word he said.

As Chalkies says.... the rendition of the Noble song by the TE when he returned with Blackpool was a thing of beauty.

Likewise I remember Peter Downsborough's reception when he returned with Bradford City in the late seventies.
Saddened to hear of Peter Noble's passing, I have very fond memories both of him playing for the Town and that glorious era.

RIP to a Swindon legend who went on to prove himself in the old first division

A key component of the all conquering 69 squad. Scored and made many goals with his deft, glancing headers.

A genuine Town legend, RIP Peter.

"Fools," said I, "You do not know:
Silence, like a cancer, grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you.
Take my arms that I might reach you."

But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon God they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
And the words that it was forming

You always knew what you were getting with Peter Noble which was 100% effort, high workrate and the ability to score goals, the sort of player that any team would be glad to have. Great memories of a legend. RIP.

What a player. King of the near-post header, usually from one of Rogers' crosses. I remember idolising him almost as much as Don as a kid.
Scored 27 penalties from 27 attempts at Burnley. How many players these days have a comparable record?

Noble, Noble
He's off to Mexico
Cause Francis Lee has got VD
Noble, Noble, Noble, Noble
etc.

RIP

Jeez that brings back memories, I can still vividly remember when Downsborough came out for the second half and started running towards us in the town end.  Have I remembered it right that he only left because we wouldn't give him an extra 5 a week?

Sad news about Noble. 72 is no age.

What sad news. A genuine Town hero. Thanks for '69, Peter, you helped give a generation of Town fans one of their best footballing experiences. RIP.

There was a nice tribute to him on Radio 4 this morning, around 1:28 at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08qxd00
