West Ham Go To Court Again

West Ham say that they "are taking legal action in relation to allegations made in today's Sunday Times." The legal action is being taken against The Sunday Times and Tottenham Hotspur.

The action seems to be based on The Sunday Times statement that Tottenham Hotspur employed investigators who obtained private information illegally. The Sunday Times, in an article titled Olympic Boss Paid Secret Cash, claimed that West Ham paid a member of the OPLC £1,868 to try and influence the decision over who to award the Olympics Stadium to.

The money was paid to Dionne Knight, the OPLC's director of corporate services. West Ham claim that the money was paid to Dionne Knight for her work for the Legacy Stadium Partnership (LSP) owned 50% by London Borough of Newham and 50% by West Ham. This work was in relation to the procurement of a construction partner after the Olympic Games.

West Ham say that "the OPLC has confirmed that Ms Knight had absolutely no involvement in the bidding process." They further claim that the money paid to her was not 'secret' and that 'her work was very transparent and the bidding process was never compromised'.

Yes that's right Tottenham and the Times. legal action is being taken against you substandard pieces of excrement.

Get used to it. Your tired rears are going to be sued repeatedly. And we'll keep doing it until you learn to keep your mouths shut.

Want to talk tripe,and spread lies and falsehoods?
Then we will make you pay the ultimate legal price .because that is exactly what you deserve.

And that is exactly what you are going to get.

Treat us with contempt,and we will shove it so far up your rectum that you scream for mercy.

Big club my rear. Big clubs don't make bids for stadiums that they never intend to use. Nor do they attempt to make their supporters go from one end of london to another to watch their team.

Big clubs don't continuously fail to hold on to big name players like Luka Modric.

Big clubs don't constantly try to convince other clubs that they are big. Because they don't need to. Because they're not insecure.

No smoke without fire. No one questioned The Sunday Times when they showed the corruption in FIFA, so why moan now? The Porn Barons are either bent or inept in the extreme.

If it is true how inept, it should have been plain brown paper bags ie no paper trail. If it bought them the votes at 14-0 it was cheap though!
