Phil Parkes believes Dimi Payet will go to an even higher level when the Hammers make their bow in the Olympic Stadium declaring: “Every match will be an occasion – it will be like a Wembley factor.”
And the former goalkeeper is convinced that the wide open spaces of the London Stadium and a 60,000 capacity crowd will see Dimi really turning on the style big time.
Speaking exclusively to ClaretandHugh Phil said: “It’s a magnificent place. I was there again the other evening for an event and it really is pretty breathtaking .
“I can see Dimitri having a ball and absolutely revelling in the atmoshere just as he did in the summer in France. He’s a big occasion man who can go to an even higher level.”
Parkes believes the lads wil settle quickly into their new surroundings which could hardly be more different to the Boleyn.
Parkesy said: “It will be a fabulous place to play. I’m sure other clubs will like the idea of playing here but our boys will adapt and I have no doubt our fans will very soon make it home and create a fantastic fearsome atmosphere.
“It will be an interesting adjustment for the players to make but I know they will and this manager of ours will leave nothing to chance. He will know how to gear the boys up to their new situation.”
Like everyone else I can’t wait for the new campaign to start , its going to be a blinder what with pep , conte , mourino and of course Bilic , if we can get off to a flyer v Chelsea it could create havoc ! I’m optimistic but I’m no fool to believe that its our given right to do really well and achieve C/L position through the league , we would all love to finish in the top 4 but its going to be no easy task , its going to be a special year in the prem with lots of shocks ,
Lubly Jubly !!
But we need to sort the striker and full backs scenario a.s.a.p. ?
No? Not moriniho** he’s not in the same bracket?? He only buys,and can’t form a team
Totally agree but they are all spending big bucks , its all about money , Bilic and west ham don’t come into this bracket ? Yet ? But Bilic is the classy one !!! He couldn’t lick Bilic boots but he has the dosh ??
