Dmitri's poetry in motion

So Slaven Bilic has said of Dimitri Payet, "I have to get poetry lessons to describe his importance to us." It's not often that West Ham and poetry are mentioned in the same breath, though that William Shakespeare did knock off a few sonnets in Stratford. It's possible of course that T S Eliot (Ward) was an Iron who wrote The Wasteland after a bleak away trip to MIllwall. Kipling might have penned If after an aborted Cup run while W H Auden's Stop All the Clocks was quite possibly a reference to our dodgy scoreboard…
