West Ham SIgn Joorabachian!!

West Ham have persuaded Kia Joorabchian to drop his High Court claim against the club for £7.1 million. As part of the settlement Joorabchian will act as a consultant for West Ham on future transfers, for which he will be paid a fee. In this way it is likely that Joorabchian will recover the money he says he is owed in the next few years.

Arbitration proceedings by the FA between West Ham and Sheffield United begin on Monday.

Joorabchian's employment by West Ham on the eve of the arbitration proceedings is a huge coincidence. Sheffield United have often hinted at evidence that Kia Joorabchian has against West Ham. I guess Joorabchian won't now be appearing for the northern club.

No, just appears corrupt. Frankly, given the hatred a lot of football fans felt for WHU after the 2006/2007 season, this is flying in the wrong direction. It won't earn the club any sympathy.

No joke I'm afraid. It was in The Times this morning.

I quite liked this take on the deal by KUMB,

"... the Iranian still maintains a healthy interest in Carlos Tevez who is currently on loan at Manchester United, leading to the possibility that he may return to West Ham one day."
