Fresh Evidence for Blades - Bollocks

Sky Sports are saying Sheffield United have fresh evidence that will help their case. The story is based on this quote from McCabe,

"We have found out more. It has taken time because everyone is reluctant, but we have 'further information'. We have put it back professionally to the Premier League where we are still looking for answers. Sheffield United will not be pushed around.

"It is ludicrous. Do you expect a company that owns the economic rights to Carlos Tevez and was willing to pay £15million to get them from River Plate to walk away with nothing from his transfer to Manchester United? And do West Ham United expect them to get nothing?

"Behind the scenes we have been digging up information that will be embarrassing for the Premier League to answer. Whether that means we still have to take our place in the Championship, I don't know. This is business and the Premier League have to get hold of that idea - they have to get real."

McCabe was making exactly the same claims before the arbitration panel met. Much of the media fell for this rubbish, with Sky Sports, The Mail and The Times being the worst in reporting McCabe's rubbish as fact, and often attributing this 'news' of 'hidden evidence' to an unnamed source.

You would have thought that they would have learnt by now not to trust this man but I guess they think printing his sensational claims makes for a good story.
