Northern Monkeys Can't Give Up

Sheffield United lost their arbitration appeal and then decided to break the terms of the arbitration by not accepting its findings and taking the matter to the High Court. Now the High Court has denied them the right to appeal. You would think they would have learnt by now that they deserved to be relegated and should accept their fate.

But no. Speaking after today's High Court decision the club's solicitor said,

"Sheffield United are not precluded from taking further action whether against the Premier League or West Ham. We will consider our position with our professional advisers and make further statements in due course.

"We can’t go to the Court of Appeal on this particular issue and that’s all that we’ve been precluded from doing. Obviously now we have to go away and think about what we can do. As Kevin (McCabe) said recently we’ve got a long agenda of things that we can do with regards to this. We’re still on the first page and I think you can be fairly confident that the issue won’t rest there."

Sheffield United lost any sympathy football fans might have had for them a long time ago. It is now time for the Premier League and FA to tell them to stop or fine them for bringing the game into disrepute.
