I did, of course, start this thread tongue in cheek but following a number of events recently (and the back-end of last season) I'm becoming disenchanted with premiership football. Especially heightened by hearing the PL boss say that they have learned from the Tevez saga that West Ham were not honest and open with the PL when this transfer was arranged. What is this man doing in this job. Wasn't it obvious to everyone and now it's escalated almost to court level. The PL thought that the hammers would go down and they would not need to make a decision about loss of points. That backfired ...ha ha.

Then we get Newcastle upping the price for Dyer AFTER everything was agreed and the player had had a medical. On comes big Sam and says, "we undervalued Dyer and obviously West Ham don't value him the same". HELLO, price agreed, medical held?????

Anyway I won't be keeping up with what cards get what PL games .... but look at a few on Sky if I get the time. Of course I'll look at Championship football but even there with Leeds at -15 points that league is not whiter than white.

I reckon the business side is overtaking the actual quality of product and the need to stay in the PL to satisfy the paymasters is making clubs push the boundaries of decency .... if not legality.

Can't disagree with any of that Jimbo, I have said all along that West Ham should have been given a points deduction, as they were deliberately dishonest and time has proven it.
