Payet gets his just desserts

PayetmiseryMarseille have slumped down to 10th place this week in the French Ligue 1 following back to back defeats against Monaco and Rennes.  Dimitri Payet has never regained the form he once enjoyed at West Ham and Marseille now have just 7 points and a goal difference of -3 after 5 games.  The Frenchman himself is a shadow of his former self and out of form, blamed by some Marseille fans for their recent slump as the team has been built around him.

He has made just two appearances for Marseille this season with the second being last week’s game against Rennes which Marseille embarrassingly lost 3-1. Payet has also been dropped from the French National team as they take part in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers to add to his humiliation.

The former Hammer gave a recent interview to Foot magazine claiming he left West Ham for footballing reasons to further his career.

Payet explained: “There were several reasons, but the first one was sporting: West Ham’s objectives were no longer the same from the season before, and I felt danger for my football and my place in the France national team.”

  1. They,ve got payet, the sulking little ####, ! They just don’t seem to understand 😂😂
    Playing 2 games out of 5 doesn’t put the blame on payet, that,s not why they’re playing shyte , bit better than us lol! But you forgot to mention his defence splitting assist pass for their goal !!!😂😂 naughty bitter Sybil, let him rot 😉

  2. I think it is really bad to see West Ham fans taking pleasure from the hard time being suffered by one of our loyal & loved ex players. A disgrace…..🙁🤔🙂😀😀😃😅😅👍

  3. One season wonder at the level he was,at least we got that season in our shirt.Undoubted talent,undoubted asshole 😂


  5. He’s getting everything he deserves, he’s like a sulky school kid who throws one when he doesnt get his own way.A waste of space.

  6. All true, but on Monday night the lack of a free kick taker was a bit of an issue. If you think how many of those points in 2015/16 resulted from direct free kicks….What I saw of Arnautovic’s attempts didn’t look promising. Lanzini? Don’t remember him having much success last year. But then I have blotted out everything apart from Hammers 1 Spuds 0 from last season.

  7. Resign him for what we sold him for and I won’t complain, he acted like an idiot to get his move as others have before and more will after but his quality is missed and was undeniable.

  8. Give them 15m and give him a contract with a compensation clause in it …..If he leaves while still under contract he has to pay us…..
