Well well well, our man Dimitri has been nominated for the Ballon d’Or. Can you believe it? I think he’s quite possibly the first ever West Ham player to be nominated for something so prestigious and it’s something we and Payet can be very proud of. Little West Ham United finally have a player that is recognised around the world as one of the very best.
Although it’s incredibly doubtful he will win it, I think his colleagues around the world are aware of his capabilities and I look forward to seeing how many votes he gets.
Another positive, Arsenal and Chelsea didn’t get anyone on the list and Spurs (although I think quite rightly) had Lloris on the list.
What do you think of the news? This is great for us as a club and Payet as a player. Come on you irons!
