Pardew Supports West Ham
Alan Pardew, in marked contrast to Wigan chairman Dave Whelan, has said that he hopes West Ham are not deducted points by the Premier League,
"All things considered, it is best if football decides. On the pitch is where it matters."
Alan Curbishley has defended Whelan, who led the calls for an investigation into West Ham. Curbishley presumably does not want to rankle Wigan fans before tomorrow's game. Whelan however has obviously suspected for a long time that Wigan's football alone wouldn't be enough to keep them in the Premiership and that their best chance of survival is a points deduction for West Ham.
