What a time to be a West Ham fan.

It’s been one hell of a start to the season for us as we continue to defy all odds away from the Boleyn Ground. Saturday’s 3-1 victory at Palace really did prove that we mean business this term, with many people touting us to come undone away from home for the first time this season.

But the lads were absolutely superb once again, and it was Dimitri Payet who grabbed the headlines once again.

The last time we had a player this exciting was back in 2006 when we had the pleasure of seeing Carlos Tevez in the famous claret and blue, but the instant impact Payet’s had in east London surely elevates him to the best signing we’ve made for decades.

Five goals and three assists already, and sometimes you wonder whether he’s even reached 100% yet.

Understandably, us fans have fallen in love with the Frenchman and have a new hero to worship as he continues to put in match winning performances that are just a pleasure to watch.

But the feeling’s mutual. Payet took to Twitter recently to reveal his happiness with life at the club so far, and also told the fans that he loves them, too.

Now if you didn’t love him before, you’ve surely got to love him now…

What. A. Man.
