?Chadwell Chatter – Dimitri Payet

Hello everyone, 

What a week it's been! Saturday’s another big game for us and it's always difficult to play at St James' Park. Manchester United drew there on Tuesday night and it's definitely a difficult place to go to and win.   

But we're going to rest up, rest the minds, rest the legs and prepare as best we possibly can to get a result there. 

We were perhaps a bit below par in the first half on Tuesday but thankfully we were able to turn it around in the second half with three goals and we were delighted with that.  

We were up against a good side, we saw that in the first half. If you let them play, they can hurt you. In the second half we were a lot more aggressive, we played as a team, we played on the floor, which enabled us to score three goals and to be a lot more dangerous. 

I think there was a slight deflection on my free-kick but it didn't change the ball’s trajectory and the goal really brought me into the game.

It's great for Enner as well. I'm really pleased that he's hitting the back of the net again!  

We’re in a good position in the league now. We're picking up points and when you win three on the spin you can rise up the table. But we can slide down just as quickly if we're not careful! We have to continue working hard.   

The love affair with the fans continues and all the better for it! You show me your love and I try to repay it on the pitch, with hard work, goals and assists, so that it continues. Apparently my song’s going to be the next big single!   

Come on you Irons,
