'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Whelan At It Again

Once again we are a little bit of a laughing stock due to our loud mouth chairman.

This whole business, with Tevez and the point`s deduction fiasco, is surely detracting from the forth coming match with Middlesbrough.

If we are going to sue then lets do it. No fuss, get the solicitors in and make a case.

At the moment it seems like sour grapes because we got thumped at the weekend, and if I am thinking that, then surely many more from the footballing world will be making the same conclusion.

I am eternally grateful to Mr Whelan; he sorted the club out and got us promoted from the bottom division to the Premier League in just ten years.

But at times I feel a bit embarrassed by him.

He does not come across as very intellectual, and for such an astute businessman, the marketing strategies of our club leave a lot to be desired.

Dave Whelan is a lot like my dad.

What you would call old school. Speak as you find and if you don`t like it then bugger off.

He also seems to have an opinion on just about evrything.

But this is a modern age, an age where the right image needs to be projected.

Bleating on and on about how West Ham have got away with murder does not, for me, project the right image.

He`s said his piece; now for goodness sake let`s get on with preparing for Saturday and sort things out, where it matters, on the pitch

Simple case of Interpretation of the rules.... This crime comes with the following penalties. 1. A Fine 2. Deduction of points The FA chose the first for the simple reason its easier to fine a club than remove 3 points. Two scenarios..... 1. Fine the club, the club pays the fine, done dusted. 2. Deduct points and the club which is under new management refuse to accept the penalty citing the rules were broken by the previous management. The FA say they will enforce the points deduction anyway. Gollum the new owner of West Ham tells the FA he is taking them to court. The FA are left in limbo, next seasons fixtures can't be finalised, the club finishing two points above West Ham would have to be relegated (assuming a 3 point deduction) The whole league would have to be put on hold till the court case was sorted out, this could take months and at the end of the case the FA may lose. 3. If they forced West Ham down and they won the legal case it would be a complete cluster***** all round. WHU would have to be reinstated in the Premiership, 2 extra fixtures for each club and 3 clubs going down with only space in the Premiership for 2 clubs to come up. In all honesty it was the best of a bad job but the FA have known about this situation for 6 months and have done nothing to resolve it. Months ago they could have deducted the hammers 3 points pending appeal. This would have been the best soloution as if WHU proved they were innocent the points could have been reinstated. The FA left it too long and too late, they appointed Steve McClaren for fecks sake, proof if any were needed the Football in England is run by incompetent *****s.
