Get over it, and get on with it!


Sheffield United are to sue West Ham for the cost of their relegation from the Premier League.

The Blades were relegated after the Premier League opted not to dock West Ham points for fielding an ineligible player in Carlos Tevez.

Sheffield United have estimated the cost of their relegation at between £30m-£50m.

A spokesman said: "After discussion with legal advisors, we will be seeking substantial compensation."

The Blades recently failed in their High Court bid to force the Premier League to take disciplinary action against West Ham.

Sheffield United took their case to the High Court after an arbitration panel rejected their claim against the Premier League, who failed to deduct points from West Ham over the transfers of Tevez and Javier Mascherano.

Instead, the Hammers were fined a record £5.5m by the Premier League.

The Blades claim West Ham gained an unfair advantage by signing an illicit player in Tevez.


OK, so this has been going on for a while, it's been ruled on by the premier league/fa - the chaps that make the rules, that all clubs have an input to, and everyone has signed up to the law that they dictate.  They were not happy with the response.  It was taken up a level, they were not happy with the outcome, as it was not in their favour.

Come on, get on with it, you are a football club, surely the best way of getting back into the premier league is to do a good job on the field, if you had done that last season, perhaps you would not have gone down.  At the end of all of this, over the course of a season, you were not good enough to stay in the top flight, and as such went down.  Don't bitch fight other clubs, the buck stops with you, shut up and play football.  If you don't get back to the premier league this time around, who are you going to blame? West Ham? Carlos Tevez? Tay Zonday? It seems almost immature, shoulder the blame, play better football, get your message out through the medium of football, not moaning off the field.  Football is full of prima donna idiots, with egos the size of a city - at the end of the day, the majority of these people get paid stupid amounts of money to play football, the least they can do is earn their money - don't go bitching about it Sheffield Utd, you did not play well enough over last season, if you had played better in any of the 38 games you had to do so, you would not need to resort to this, and you would just get on with playing, and trying to avoid relegation once again this season.
