Irons find Payet’s “equal” at free kicks


snoddyRobert Snodgrass was told today that his free kicks are currently quite the equal of Dimi Payet’s.

The £6 million window signing arrived with a big reputation as a dead ball specialist and has already shown what a handful he can be at both free kicks and corners.

One effort from around 20 yards against West Brom forced a truly magnificent save from Baggies keep Ben Foster as the left footed low effort dipped wickedly in front of him.

And David Gold speaking exclusively to ClaretandHugh: “You would have to say they have been quite the equal of Payet’s. Robert has produced some really effective free kicks and corners and at £6 million looks a fantastic signing.

“He gives you everything he’s got and I am really pleased he joined West Ham. When you consider we signed him and Michail Antonio  for a total of £13 million you have to say that looks outstanding business.”
