Compensation Announcement Next Year
The BBC have produced a web page trying to explain the inexplicable tribunal decision today. As part of their explanation the BBC say that the tribunal will probably not announce the compensation West Ham are due to pay until the beginning of next year.
So that looks like West Ham are screwed for the next transfer window as well. West Ham won't be able to buy any players as they won't know how much compensation they will have to pay. And other clubs will be looking at West Ham thinking that we have to offload players on the cheap. So we will be screwed if we want to sell.
You have to ask is this tribunal doing everything it can to screw over West Ham.
