James Collins showed he remains a firm favourite with the fans after they invented a new take on the Dimitri Payet Song. Supporters in the Sir Trevor Brooking lower stand sung “We’ve Pele, Ginger Pele! I just don’t think you understand. He’s Super Slavs man, he’s better than Zidane. We’ve got Ginger Pele!”
The Ginger Pele was warming up at the time in front of the Sir Trevor Brooking and West stand. When he stopped to tie his boot laces a young Hammers fan approached him to chat with him and Collins immediately gave him his training top as a memento.
Collins came on for a cameo role in the 93rd minute as Bilic ran the clock down to the Hammer’s 3-1 win over Watford.
