Payet: Fans ready for the worst

Tony Cottee believes there’s a chance Dimitri Payet will soon be on his way from the Hammers in pursuit of medals.

The former Hammers striker makes it clear he really doens’t want it to happen but believes the two Manchester options represent a serious option.

Here’s how ClaretandHugh Facebook forum members @ย https://www.facebook.com/groups/363174467150521/ย responded to TC’s comments.


Payet4O Does anyone seriously think he will stay? Of course he won’t and who can blame him. He is far too good for us.
O Gulp!.
O Agree with TC I can see him going in January, not sure he is playing 100%. IF he goes we need to invest the money very well and far better than what we have done this summer.
Oย If he goes, that would be down to the owners for not bringing quality players in to complement his style of play.
O Seeing as he wanted to go in the summer but was persuaded not to because of season ticket sales, say he was a cert to go in January.

  1. As long as we get what he is worth, which we very rarely do,and invest wisely.I would love him to stay but no player is forever nowadays especially foreign players who have no geological or inherent loyalties. COYI

  2. I don’t think he will be sold until the end of the season if at all, he is also really good mates with Ayew so hopefully when they can play together his mood will pick up and we can see. I do think that unless we go on an amazing run and show that we are close to a top four team he will be off, but I think it is only Real Madrid he would move too because he wants to be managed by Zidane, then it will come down to finances and they haven’t shown any indication that they are willing to pay 100M for him.

    Really, I don’t remember him saying that,

  4. For f#ck sake.If he goes then he goes end of story.Instead of worry about it just enjoy watching him while he is ours because i tell you what we probably wont sign anyone like him again for a few years.

  5. Isn’t this all just idle speculation?
    “Payet: Fans ready for the worst” Are they? Some are… aren’t some always ready for the worst? Personaly I expect him to remain a West Ham player rather than warming the bench somewhere else. I love Dimitri, I realy, realy do, but let’s get real. What has he actually done? Would you say he has been as influencial as say, Steven Gerard… or Frank Lampard… or (I’m chocking even more when I say this) John Terry were for their respective teams? This is just press talk. Build ’em to knock ’em dowm. Look at Wayne Rooney. They’ll be saying Payet is rubbish, over rate, over the hill next week. Remember all the talk about Paolo and Manure? But he didn’t go there, did he?

  6. haha.. don’t worry, every time Cottee opens his mouth, exactly the opposite happens… I remember his wise words in the days of Hippo… He is like an oracle, only in reverse… lol ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. TC is a swinger.He is forever changing his mind about things.He was a very good player but as a pundit he has splinters in his bum most the time.

  8. If we are honest he possibly only has one or two seasons left at the peaks of his power.Who is going to pay big dollar to sign him.I dont see it myself.
    It was mentiond by Rick but lets enjoy him while he is ours.We dont get many players like him so enjoy every bit of magic he produces for us.

  9. lol… the wise conversation between Rick and me is gone… ok, so from now on It’s forbidden to write the word … clearly, it was getting international… message received… lol ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. hahah… I’m in the eye of the storm Tone, I got nominated, I could be expelled from the Big Brother house… loool ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. And now Tones comments disappears,this is all a little stupid.Grown men having comments deleted beacause we are talking like men do not monks or nuns ๐Ÿ˜›
