Considering Mohamed Al-Fayed’s love of lawsuits, this was inevitable.
Basing our lawsuit as we have – on the findings of Lord Griffith’s original inquiry – seems to give us a stronger case that I would have thought. If there is, indeed, ‘no doubt’ that the inclusion of Carlos Tevez gained West Ham at least three points, then we are owed the prize money we would have achieved.
As the boys over on TIFF have already pointed out this morning, it looks like a clear case of breach of contract as West Ham have contravened the Premier League’s rules. One for the lawyers to argue – and make plenty of money – over.
