At only 24, there’s no doubt that Pablo Fornals is a promising star, but will he reach the level of Dimitri Payet in our colours if we stay up and heavily reinvest around him?
That was the question posed by @COYIrons_com last Wednesday evening and it’s prompted a definite answer from loads of fellow West Ham fans – no.
It’s obvious that Payet was on a planet of his own when he played for us, the most talented and probably best all-round player to represent us in modern times.
We shouldn’t be putting any pressure on Fornals’ shoulders, just let him find his feet, which he’s doing fantastically at the moment, and bloom to the best of his ability…

Not a chance 😂Payet could do it without the investment

Only Payet can reach Payet level.

Not putting fornals down but no… payet was unbelievable, he could do it without the investment.
Payet, along with Di Canio are the best 2 players ive seen (In my life time) play for west ham
