The League's Letter

The Premier League has sent a six page letter to all the teams in the league explaining why West Ham were not deducted points.

One part that Sheffield United need to read very carefully is the bit that says,

"At no point were West Ham United charged with playing an ineligible player".

Even today Sheffield United issued a statement complaining that they were relegated because of a team who "fielded ineligible players." The club's continual inability to understand what West Ham were even accused of seriously undermines any attempt they make to have the verdict re-examined.

The letter also says that,

"The League could not function if other clubs could effectively intervene in an attempt to overturn decisions not to their liking."

This also does not bode well for the Blade's attempt to take the decision to arbitration.
