    I think Sheffield United’s way of thinking seems to be that it’s better to stand on the moving train and piss on people on the platform, than it is to stand on the platform and try piss at people on the train.

    Well now they’re definitely on the platform, I hope they’ve absent-mindedly got their mouth open.

    It’s obviously the case that Sheffield Utd wouldn’t have pursued this had they not ended up relegated, and the fact that nobody else really supported them speaks volumes of the “look after number one” mentality of the clubs, but this makes no difference to the rights and wrongs of the case. And reading both reports it is clear to most readers that West Ham got out of jail free on this one – not docked points because it was at the end of the season, not docked points because it might upset their poor fans, etc. The conclusion that West Ham are a club with more influence than they deserve is hard to escape. Or at least its hard to escape if you’ve spent your entire life watching the media lick their balls and tell, us how wondercful they are.

    Sorry, I’m letting my hate for WHU cloud my arguments here. I’m happy the blunts went down. I’m just not happy that they couldn’t have taken West Ham with them.
