Sheffield Utd Reap What They Sow

It is being reported that Barnsley FC have decided to take legal action against Sheffield United for the injury sustained by Iain Hume after a shocking foul by Sheffield's Chris Morgan. Hulme fractured his skull in the tackle and has consequently missed much of this season.

Patrick Cryne, Barnsley owner, said in the Yorkshire Post,

"We are looking at the legal hurdles in the way of seeking to recover damages from Sheffield United. Our action will not be dependent on whether we are relegated.

"Our argument is, simply, that we paid a lot of money for Iain Hume in transfer fee and wages and we have lost his services through a violent, reckless, or intentional act. His loss to Barnsley FC had a serious impact on our season."

This is almost the inevitable outcome of Sheffield United's attempts to ruin the beautiful game over the last two seasons and there will be very few people in football who will sympathise with the Sheffield club.

Get in Barnsley......

However i am sure it will come back on us somehow with some other frivolous law suit.

I imagine that the Sheff Utd player was so upset by his demotion to a lower league that he snapped and hit our at Hume. WH to blame again.

I hear that a WH Player has been over in Mexico causing an world wide epidemic.
