I fail to see how this can possibly succeed. I understand their bitterness and all that stuff but to want compensation from West Ham is being blind to reality. Do Sheff Utd really feel that West Ham, Tevez etc was the only reason they went down? Good grief, had they beaten Wigan on the last day of the season, they would have stayed up regardless. That in itself is evidence enough that there is no case for West Ham to answer.
Blades fans, try to understand, you went down because throughout the whole season, you did not score enough points. It has precious little to do with West Ham. There is no sense in this legal action. It cannot and must not succeed. The precedent is so dangerous. What next, sueing a ref for making a decision that cost a game and hence the points to stay up when the season was done? Sueing a player who broke your player’s leg because your man might have scored 20 goals and saved you?
Seriously, we need to worry about this. West Ham have been punished under the rules. Enough is enough.
