League Tells Clubs They Have No Case

The Premier League has written a letter to Sheffield United, Wigan Athletic, Charlton Athletic and Fulham, which it has also copied to all other clubs warning them that any legal threat is doomed to failure.

The letter states that any challenge by them "would fly in the face of the disciplinary structure that the clubs themselves created and we consider would, as a matter of law, be bound to fail". The letter also points out that all the clubs agreed to the procedure of the hearing into West Ham before the hearing took place.

According to The Times this should ensure "that relegation will be decided on the pitch rather than in the courtroom."

I can't see it myself. Sheff United are not safe yet. They can't really do anything but go for a win or they might find themselves relegated.
