Recharged West Ham face tricky test against Middlesbrough

Slaven Bilic says he refuses to take away from West Ham's win by talking about Dimitri Payet.

West Ham's season has taken a most unexpected turn.

On the face of it, in refusing to play for the club, the actions of Dimitri Payet should have led to dressing room chaos and fan unrest. It appears as if the exact opposite has happened.

The atmosphere generated by supporters against Crystal Palace in last weekend's fine 3-0 win worked on many different levels. Firstly, the songs and chants directed against Payet made it quite clear to the board that fans were appalled by the actions of the French...

The Exploding Heads preview the huge game between Man City and Tottenham, and the Dembele-go-around.

Another weekend of top Premier League action is upon us, and it's a big one for Pep Guardiola as his Manchester City side take on Tottenham. City have struggled in recent months, while Tottenham are on the rise, but who will come out on top at the Etihad?

Meanwhile, Chelsea have Diego Costa back in the squad but don't seem to need him that much as they take on lowly Hull City seven points clear at the top of the table.

Don't expect loyalty from players like Dimitri Payet, football is a business

As the Dimitri Payet saga continues, Gab Marcotti gives his views on player power and whether it is affecting the game.

While it is not uncommon for a player to force his hand when he wants to move to pastures new, Dimitri Payet's refusal to play for West Ham, in an attempt to force through a move to Marseille, undoubtedly leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

Among the howls of indignation, however, it is perhaps worth remembering that it is players, more often than not, who are on the end of poor treatment from their clubs whenever the roles are reversed.

If an unwanted footballer wishes to stay with his club, to honour...

Unhappy in England, Payet just wants to return home to Marseille

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop explains why Dimitri Payet is out of line, while Gab Marcotti predicts how Payet's future will play out.
Former West Ham goalkeeper Shaka Hislop says West Ham would be best suited to let Dimitri Payet leave.
Slaven Bilic confirms that Dimitri Payet won't play for West Ham for the time being, after asking to leave the club.
Janusz Michallik thinks West Ham's convincing 3-0 win was a direct response by the squad amid the rift with Dimitri Payet.

Dimitri Payet is still a West Ham player. For how long, though? That's a different question as things are changing pretty quickly. Last week, when Slaven Bilic revealed to the world that the Frenchman was refusing to train and to play for the club and insisted he would not be sold at any price this month, it looked as if Payet would be there until at least the summer. Today, things are different. From "non-transferable," Payet has become "transferable." West Ham have indeed opened the door on...

Andy Carroll's wonder goal steals the show as West Ham roll Crystal Palace

Andy Carroll scored a goal for the ages as West Ham rebounded with a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.
Slaven Bilic praises not only his squad, but the fans, for urging them on to a commanding 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.

West Ham eased to a convincing, 3-0 win over Crystal Palace at the London Stadium on Saturday as supporters made their feelings known about wantaway Dimitri Payet. Payet's claim that he didn't want to play for the club anymore actually worked as a catalyst for supporters who gave their side some vociferous support.

Goals from Sofiane Feghouli, Andy Carroll and Manuel Lanzini made it a comfortable second half for the Hammers after a dull first 45 minutes. Michail Antonio provided the assist for...
