Relegated without kicking another ball?

I know this has been hanging over our head for a while and this is currently only paper talk but the Daily Express is claiming to have seen evidence and statements. Depressing to think that the 12 points from our last 6 games and any future heroics might be in vain...


WEST HAM are set to be found guilty of fielding two ineligible players and hiding incriminating documents from the Premier League, according to evidence and statements seen by the Daily Express.

Guilty verdicts on the two serious charges relating to third-party ownership of Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano will be a mere formality at the two-day hearing to be held at the end of this week, with points deduction a real threat and the only question remaining the severity of West Ham’s punishment.

Although an appeal is inevitable if points are docked, the Hammers could be effectively relegated by the outcome of the disciplinary hearing before a ball is kicked in this weekend’s key game against Wigan.

Inside information has been passed on to us about how West Ham held back documentation to the Premier League.

A Premier League source told me: “There are two very serious charges and in my view there is powerful evidence against West Ham, but of course the commission will decide. There is no doubt that the charges are so serious that points deductions cannot be ruled out.”
