Not trying to rub salt in the wound, just curious. I would be outraged at that kind of ❤️❤️❤️❤️ if a player whom you had penned hopes and dreams on just gave my club the finger like that.

    And they could have made around £100M if he had been sold in the summer during the Euros.

    Understand his reasons yes, but not his actions.

    He has behaved terribly.

    Badly advised, but he had to do what he had to do. The West Ham board are absolute knobends, and I can imagine they acted such and wouldn't be empathetic of Payet's family situation, which would force such a scenario. End of the day, there's more to life than football and working.

    Gutted? No. Disappointed, yes. Bought him as a 28 year old for £10m. Had a great season and Euros, and returned home for family reasons, and we made £15m profit on him. If I was a Marseille fan, I'd have serious concerns spending £25m on a player who next season will be 31.

    Allows Lanzini to step-up now though.

    He still went about it wrong.

    His family situatuon isnt that bad, London to Marseille is a trip he could make once a week to visit.

    He should have sat down with them and and agreed to work his ❤️❤️❤️❤️ off till the end of the season and then leave on good terms.

    Agreed, he was probably promised that West Ham would challenge for Europe like the fans were but you can't come out and say you don't want to play for your club. Should've stayed until the summer and left a hero.

    Disagree.

    Moved to Gibraltar with my wife 3 months after getting married. I love it here. She's extremely homesick and not settling at all. I think its madness as the life here is miles better than London, and we're from the better parts too. We're going back as I can't bare to see her down and feeling isolated.

    Why would you stay in a job you're not happy in? You wouldn't. Family and your own happiness always comes first.

    Still think there's more to the story from West Hams end. Our board are infamous for ❤️❤️❤️❤️ everyone about and spinning the truth. You can see that with the stadium.

    no way, £100M for free kicks seems a bit too much for me. I think £40-60M would have been more reasonable.

    No way would we have got £40m+ for a 29 year old from Ligue 1, which is the only place he wanted to go.

    I haven't followed this Payet thing too closely, how exactly did he go from "I love West Ham and won't play anywhere else" to "I am refusing to play, please sell me immediately"? Is it just because West Ham is disappointingly terrible this season?

    He has gone to a similar club in his home town for less wages, behaved disgracefully but until we find out exactly what went on we should be careful to say too much.. One of his family may be seriously Ill, which, if true, would make Brady and co look like the set of C--ts we already know them to be. They need to take a leaf from my clubs board and get off social media and get running your joke of a club properly.

    Its not the same though, his family had already moved home, he could have flown to see them weekly while he came to a respectable solution.

    Football should be about fans, refusing to play is an insult to them.

    Get a grip of reality, i worked away for 8 months in 2015 going back on a weekend and it was a massive strain on my life/relationship, just because they earn good money doesnt detract from them being human beings.

    Football is at the end of the day still a game, and a job for payet. Family should always be your number one priority

    :joy: its not normal reality though is it.

    Its more than good money, its ridiculous money that makes the journey to see his family the same as a guy from birmingham working down in london during the week.

    The club and player could have come to an agreement to allow him a day a week off to see them. And gone about things peacefully ibstead if the ❤️❤️❤️❤️ that went on.

    He commited his future to West Ham last season.
    To then turn around and refuse to play is disgraceful behaviour.

    he deserved to rot in the reserves.

    I disagree, i earned roughly double my wage by working away, would i do it again... i would do my best to avoid it at all costs, work life balance was shocking and my weekends were spent solely with my GF so i didn't see friends/family at all and every monday morning was just should destroying, its s--t whichever you way look at it.

    And all that crap on Talksport about being in france within 30 mins after the game is rubbish, its at least a 2 hour flight to Marseilles with another 2 hours added on for airport time.

    The guy has been an absolute ❤️❤️❤️❤️ but at least he didn't do it then sod off to United or Real Madrid, he stuck to his word and for that we have to at least credit him for.. I've seen plenty of players claim the same then move even further away from where they live.

    I assumed last season was a disappointingly bad season as well (relative to the expectations).

    Do you similarly disparage clubs when they commit to players only to sell them before the end of the contract?

    Gaston Ramirez has been equally as much of a knob to us but we haven't all started crying about it.

    TBH as a fan there is most likely so much going on behind the scenes that you cant really make to much of a judgement but refusing to play is really just sad after what he said
