Official Club Statement on Sheffield Arbitration

19/06/2007 19:15
The following is an official Club statement in relation to the Premier League arbitration hearing in London this week:

"West Ham United are and remain a Barclays Premier League Football Club. There is no scope for this to be changed by the Premier League's arbitration panel and West Ham United's status can not be called into question in relation to next season.
West Ham United were not and are not a party to the arbitration and our standing as a Premier League Club is not in doubt as a result of the panel's hearing.
The Club are well advanced in preparing for the new season and are taking further steps to strengthen the playing squad over the summer. We will not be deflected in our goal of achieving success in the Premier League next season."

Wie ich immer sagte: West Ham United ist nicht Partei des Verfahrens von Sheffield gegen die Premier League! Und es kann bei diesem Verfahren nichts herauskommen, was das Ergebnis des ersten Verfahrens - und damit West Hams Premiership-Status - ernsthaft in Frage stellen könnte. That's it!
Thank you very much for this statement.

From the Sunday Business Post:
"The panel have to determine two matters: whether the decision by an independent disciplinary commission on April 27 to fine West Ham rather than dock points was so legally flawed that a fresh disciplinary commission needs to sit, and whether the Premier League acted unlawfully by not de-registering Tevez.
Even if a new commission is set up, and that appears increasingly unlikely, there is no way the full process could be completed before the start of next season.
The longer the saga continues, the more remote are Sheffield United’s chances.
League insiders believe that if United’s lawyers had been confident of success in a court battle they would have sought an injunction to prevent next season’s fixture lists being issued last week.
Furthermore, the Premier League have confirmed they are investigating the transfer of Kabba from the Blades to Watford."

Should there be a Salary Cap in Football?
Personally I think there should be! It’s just getting to be stupid money in football at the top of the premiership!
It’s always the same teams at the top proving that football success is based purely on money which ruins the idea of it being a sport! They’ve done it in rugby, basketball, hockey and American football and it makes the sports more competitive and better to watch!
I like to Bet on Football from time to time and most matches don’t hold much surprise who is going to win, its boring! Football Betting would be so much better if you saw a team at the bottom pulling off an amazing season and beating last season winners in a close fought battle for the title!
Make things fair! It shouldn’t be about money!
