More Delay In Tevez Case

Sheffield Utd have been told they will have to wait until Christmas before discovering whether their attempts to prevent the Hammers taking their case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport are successful.

The Judge at the High Court this morning told those present that he would take time to consider the evidence before reaching a judgement "at some point before Christmas".

west ham1 everton 3 highlights

in game which united where with out adoubt the better side but failing to take those
chances cost us dear for the second week in a row the Hammers' shaky defence - 25 games now without a clean sheet - fell apart in an incredible final few minutes to gift all three points to Everton who really should have been well and truly beaten
by half time.
Freddie Sears had our two best chances in the first half and should have put us 1 up after being teed up by Craig Bellamy following an excellent run on the left flank
hiting the target but tim howard pushed on to the bar.

in the second half much the same everton sitting back and countless attacks by the hammers came to nothing untill Matthew Etherington came on for the disappointing Luis Boa Morte.

That decision proved to be a good one as United took the lead just five minutes after Etherington's introduction. Another flowing move on the left flank saw Scott Parker fed inside the box. Without a thought Parker produced a clever backheel into the path of midfield partner Collison who bent the ball in to the top corner of the net.
but just as last week we let slip and totally collapsed it was 1-1 when Jolean Lescott rose to equalise with a free header from a Saha cross with just seven minutes left on the clock it was soon 1-2 when saha found the net and it was soon
1-3 when Faubert laclusterd pass was cut out allowing Saha to fire home from the edge of the box with West Ham defenders backing away this defeat is our 5th in the last six games relligation anyone.

To The High Court We Go!

West Ham are to take their case to the High Court next week in the latest attempt to overturn the decision to allow Sheffield United to sue for damages in the wake of their relegation.

our latest visit to the courts comes as an attempt to prevent the Blades from taking out an injunction which in turn would prevent West Ham from taking their case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Sheffield United say that as the fa do not recognise CAS and there powers to arbitrate in such matters.

but hope for westham is that fifa and uefa rulings bodies DO recognise the CAS, a point that the Hammers will make in their submission.

the moron (Kevin McCabe) said: this week

"we are determined not to be pushed aside over this sporting injustice. They [Premier League] are under-managed. They hide behind setting up an independent panel to penalise a club that's breached the rules and believe that alleviates their job to govern the game.

"We really need to get a restructure of the governance of the FA Premier League to stop what happened to us ever happening again."

i ask when will fifa step in and sort this mess out as it is quite clear one man cant save a team.

Zola Has Striker Worries

Gianfranco Zola has something of a striker dilemma ahead of Saturday's clash. With Dean Ashton (ankle) and Carlton Cole (suspended) definitel ruled out.
whilst new striker diego tristan is a doubt for this weekend's clash with Everton after suffering a knock during a Reserve team match against spurs this week and this leaves him Craig Bellamy, rookie Freddie Sears and veteran David Di Michele to choose from.

Behrami injury lay-off

Valon Behrami could be out for up to a month after injuring his calf during last night's 2-0 defeat at Old Trafford.

Behrami damaged his calf when breaking down the flank in the closing moments of the first half.
The loss of Behrami is just the latest piece of bas news for Gianfranco Zola, whose injury list is beginning to resemble that which Alan Curbishley suffered from last season

manchester united 2 west ham 0

West Ham United succumbed to a fourth successive Premier League defeat at Old Trafford, going down 2-0 to reigning champions Manchester United.

Ronaldo gave the home side a 12th minute lead with a close range effort the Hammers were always up against it.

When a second was added on the stroke of the half hour mark - Ronaldo converting a Berbatov centre from close range - we looked as if we might collapse to a heavy defeat this wasnt helped by Valon Behrami, who was carried off in the final minute of the first half.

however united took there foot off the gas and the second was an fairly uneventful affair.Craig Bellamy's dipping free kick on the hour mark was as close as the Irons
came to getting back into the game and showed we missed the suspended Carlton Cole.

At the other end Rob Green continued his good form by making a couple of crucial saves stoping the score rising and maintaing some dignity for the players.
