West Ham to Sue Ashton and Green
West Ham have decided to sue Robert Green, Lucas Neill, James Collins, Anton Ferdinand, George McCartney, Yossi Benayoun, Nigel Reo-Coker, Mark Noble, Luis Boa Morte and Bobby Zamora for £30 million.
An FA arbitration panel yesterday ruled that these ten West Ham players contributed nothing to West Ham's 2006/7 season and that Carlos Tevez single handily saved the Irons from relegation.
Clearly if Tevez had received even a little help from the rest of the team West Ham would have qualified for Champions League football. Consequently West Ham say they have little choice but to seek compensation from the players for the loss of earnings incurred by not qualifying for European competition.
