Judge Delays Tevez Case Decision

Over the last two days West Ham and Sheffield United have been in the High Court. Sheffield United have been trying to injunct the Hammers to prevent them taking their appeal on the Tevez case to the Court of Arbitration. On the face of it, a delay in the Judge’s decision until Christmas is a good thing, as it indicates that the Judge believes West Ham have a real case. But the law moves in mysterious ways…

    Meanwhile, Lord Griffiths has ordered that forensic examination of Sheffield United’s accounts should be commenced …

  2. It also keeps us in limbo-land and I doubt that any Club buyers would like to have a £50 million uncertainty to come with a purchase.
    I was (naively) hoping that the hearing would give some kind of hint on were this was going.

  3. Kim says:

    And Lord Griffiths has given the go ahead for us to examine Sheffield United’s books. We have until March to work out how they got to £50m. Now wouldn’t it be wonderful if we uncovered something untoward!!!!

    Areed iain this is positive news,I think the judge realizes we have a strong case.

  5. persona non grata says:

    A rather daring use of “injunct” as a verb. Shocking! I like it.

    Keep up the good work.

    sheffield utd made a prediction of how many points it would take to survive in the premiership, they didnt reach this total and got relegated, if west ham lose this case are they to sue the officials of the blackburn game who gave them a goal that didnt cross the line, of which without we would have lost the game thus not having enough points for survival.
    can i sue maradonna for his blatent handball and get my tenner back that the bookies took, + the winnings which id have put on a horse that eventually won at fifty to 1 blah blah blah.

  7. Roshi says:

    Well it’s 3.45 and still nothing about this on the WHU website.

  8. NotRayWinstone says:

  9. chris says:

  10. the headmaster says:

    I’ve never understood why we have never responded to this one by arguing the reverse. That is to say how many points we would have ended up with that season if the two Argie boys hadn’t have come along!

    If you all remember following their arrival (which was pretty much at the start of that season) there was complete player unrest and turmoil. There were other things going on as well but Pardew obviously wasn’t happy with their arrival and neither were some of the players. I can’t remember the precise stats but at one point just after the new year we had no more than a dozen or so points. Their arrival had a prolonged negative impact to the whole team for a long period.

    I think we could argue that if they hadn’t arrived at all we would have ended up with more points than we actually did! This would be in the same category of fact as the “3 points” Tevez was alleged to be worth to us don’t you think?

  13. Roshi says:

    Excellent point Mike, you are spot on!


  14. James says:


    I doubt that, Pardew had is favorites such as Reo-Coker that is why the team were demoralised in my opinion, I also have the feeling that Pardew had not the slightest clue what to do with players of Tevez and Mascherano’s talents, the amount of times he benched them showed that!

    I still wish to this day we had Tevez and Mascherano in the squad, Would have been a dream seeing Zola managing us with then included

    Another thing, the delay gives me confidence also, i agree

  15. NotRayWinstone says:

    Frankly, i am past caring. What’s £30M to someone that loves to shoulder personally any financial liability of every firm he has an interest in (mug or what), someone that continually lends himself money, through the numerous pies he has fingers in, to keep afloat his (many) failing interests. This says to me his semi downfall is indeed his own doing, Plus i find it hard to have even the remotest speck of sympathy for someone that can countenance the pressure of gullible mugs to pay for shirts bearing the name of a long dead former player. Then again if you are buying those shirts, surely you are just as much a part of the problem for making it possible for them to exploit the name of the dead. Or are we too dim to donate to a charity off our own backs, oh sorry there’s no cut in individual donations for the club to take, silly me. On second thoughts this could be a great way to pay off that £30M, there’s many other dead icons we can exploit. I personally am looking forward to the Ron Greenwood voiced SatNav and the Johnny Lyall glow in the dark pack of condoms.

    Cheers jon.london colney – superb read. Recommend it to all.

    I’m gonna do some fence sitting on the Tevez/Mascherano judgment. Could go either way.

    Not going to sit on the fence when I say I still reckon the club will be sold at a knocked down price when BG’s hand is forced.

    exellent point mike you genius.

  20. Roshi says:

    Why on earth would we want a “big, strong, quick defender”.
    If the report had said “big, strong, quick defender who can tell the time” then I think we should keep him.

  21. Keith says:

    Report in the daily express claims tevez cannot leave man u for madrid in january as his “loan” contract forbids it, is this not again 3rd party interference.

  22. Exasperated of Buenos Ares says:

    How can one ugly Argentinian cause so much confusion and trouble. He and his slaveowner need stopping before they bring the whole of British football crumbling down. I strongly suspect Ferguson realises this and quite rightly just wants shot of him quick time. Any club interested in him is absolutely crazy.

  23. irontc says:

    I cant understnd either why our legal team did not argue the point that Mike makes.

    Its plain for everyone to see – if Tevez and Masher hadnt of been ‘forced’ upon Pardew, the club, most likely would NOT have got off to such a terrible start to the season.

    Tevez didnt score till the Spuds game when two thirds of the season had already gone.

    Surely after a very promising previous PL season, not to mention a cup final appearence, the Tevez influence, as a whole, can only be seen as negative one?

    Having said that – watching Tevez in that Bolton game (3-1) with Noble was better than the cup final itself.
