West Ham fined £5.5m

Recommended Posts

Who were the last team to be fined points? Boro?

 

In the PL yes. Quite rightly imo, cheating bastids.

 

They obviously didn't want the headache that would be caused by a point deduction as West Ham would appeal.

Yes, I guess their worst case scenario was a point deduction and West Ham only getting relegated because of the deducted point. It would have created a huge uncertainty. So yes, I think they have chickened out...

 

But to be fair, the penalty is really hefty and probably equates with the sum of all fines for wrongdoing from UEFA and FIFA of the last two decades...

£5.5m is very fucking steep, especially considering that it will be the new owners paying it and not the guys who actually signed him.

 

Now if UEFA would only follow suit with the racists.

Although I don't mind West Ham, it would be canny funny if they now went down anyway (which they probably will imo).

Aye, £5.5m for not declaring something on a transfer, a couple of thousand pounds if you racially abuse players/fix matches/hoy burning mopeds at away fans..

On a related note how unfortunate have West Ham been with Upson? He's played 41 minutes for them since signing for £6m and reportedly has a relegation release clause in his contract. :lol:

From a purely toon point of view I'm happy when any Southern club exits the prem tbh. Should have whacked them for points as well. :lol:

Just said on Talksport that the fine would have been £8m-£9m had West Ham not pleaded guilty to all charges.

Kin of puts the 300k Chelsea were fined for tapping up Ashley Cole into perspective.

 

Whilst clearly the clubs can't control racism, it would only take a fine of similar magnitude to stop it dead. It would probably cause security to be tightened in the San Siro, to stop the moped getting in there in the first place..

Dean Ashton injured for Ingurland as well. Unlucky season, to say the least. :o

You know why they fined them so much don't you, to cover the cost of what Shep's trying to get out of them in payment for crocking Owen :lol:
