James Collins better hope he doesn’t run into Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy any time soon because we all know what happens when you chat shit…
“It is unbelievable what he (Payet) does,” said Collins. “When he is on it like against Blackburn, like we see in training, I haven’t played with or against anyone better.”
“He (Payet) is a magic player and the West Ham fans are seeing the best of it. We have to wrap him up in cotton wool and get him out on the pitch as much as we can.”
Payet certainly looks like a #baller with some #tekkers but better than playing against Gareth Bale, JC? Settle down.
West Ham fans, and the club in general, certainly seem to have a penchant for getting carried away with themselves and overhyping, well, everything.
When you remember that Anton Ferdinand was singing Sears’ praises, it’s crazy to think he never lived up to his hype: “I’ve been bigging him up since he started training with us. He’s special, even though it was his first game there were no nerves. I told him I had a feeling he would score, it was written for him.”
Guaranteed top four and could potentially challenge for the league, that’s what the Hammers faithful were saying around November time. They finished 12th – winning three of their last 19 games.
Anthony Gardner, Michael Ricketts, Seth Johnson, Jay Bothroyd, Paul Konchesky, Zat Knight, Gavin McCann and Michael Ball all have an England cap or two. However, Noble doesn’t, despite being the best player England have produced since Bobby Moore, apparently.
Date of failure: TBC
