Snodgrass takes a swing at Payet


snoddy1Robert Snodgrass insists he is not a Dimitri Payet replacement.

The Scot arrived at the club just 48 hours before we got shot of the on strike Frenchman who was determined to perform his own form of Brexit for Marseille!

Now Snodgrass has pledged that the irons will have no troubles with him as acting in such a way would never enter his head.

He said: “I’m totally different to Payet because he was playing like an individual towards the end of his time at West Ham and the lads weren’t too happy about that.

“The rest of the team were coming in every day and working as hard as they possibly could and wanted someone alongside them who was giving everything.

“That is exactly the kind of player I am. As soon as I came through the door they could see that I don’t leave everything in the tank.

“That’s the way I have always been and it’s the reason I’ve had good relations with the fans at all my clubs.”

    Like the look of snods he has impressed me,and his doubters have gone quiet. Still needs his first goal but he looks at home and hopefully got to know the lads a bit better in Dubai.COYI

    Very few have the skills that Payet has, but your value to a team is based on so much more than that. Whilst I can’t see Snoddy making my jaw drop, I’m much happier with him in the side than le teletubby.
