Thought I'd put this out there due to all the comparisons between the 2 players.

I'm not seeing any similarities myself. So can orgers explain where this has come from.

For me Paqeuta plays in the same position as a 10 I guess to use modern terms. But thats about it for me. I remember Payet as a magician, dribbling, close control, bliding free kicks a really dynamic force.

I'm not seeing that in Paqueta, although he needs time and looks the real deal but no Payet..

Pacman not so much...he has the skills no doubt and he was unlucky not to score yesterday but still think he needs to toughen up...on the other side of the coin i loved Scamaccas passion and the way he is demanding better from the players around him that can only be a good thing.

I also agree 2 pints could do with toughening up a bit,his first couple of games he did give the ball away quite a lot but I've seen enough now to suggest imo he will be an asset...

I think for me it’s not so much they play like each other it’s more the quality level. I don’t think since Payet have we had a player at that level, Rice aside. If you think about how we courted Lingard and he’s nowhere near Paqueta’s level. He certainly would t claim the 10 shirt for Brazil, just about gets the Forest one these days.

I think in fairness his choice was related to his wife not wanting to move house so when forest came in with 200 k a week it was an offer he couldn't refuse ,i think we might have dodged a bullet tjere, he definitely looks like hes not interested there .

Nothing like each other, think Paqueta will prove himselve but in a completely different way to Payet. Feeling optimistic :o)

Was allegedly from a comment by a deluded David Moyes a couple of weeks ago
https://www.hammers.news/club-news/west-ham-boss-david-moyes-makes-big-d... If he genuinely said that then he is totally off his rocker as there is no comparison. When Paqueta starts dribbling, doing rabonas, scores regularly and takes unbelievably obscene free kicks AND does all that on a regular basis then I might listen to Moyes, Until then.........

Did you read it? I assume you did as you bothered to post it. He says a player like that. In my view he’s saying a player of that quality Gazza was a different player to Cantona but they both had the same level of quality. I know it’s not a black and white answer but some time you have to be honest and think outside the box, even if it does go against the agenda
