Payet to West Ham just feels like a typically scattergun West Ham signing, with no real thought or plan to the way they operate. Just another name on big money, a generic attacking player to appease the fans.
Can well imagine a scenario when Bilic gets sacked within the next 18-24 months, that they're offloading Payet for less money than they paid for him to get him off the wage bill just to enable whoever the new not-very-good-manager they've appointed is to get his marquee overrated, overpaid signing in.
Their squad is just a mishmash of different types of player with no real plan or identity. Sunderland and QPR operate in a similar way.
