Hammer-Tastic Special - We hate Warnock

Dear God we're bored of reading about this whole affair. Tevez doesn't play for West Ham any more, the club got peanuts for him... why are we subjected to this whole hoopla? (Yes, hoopla.)

And now we have to put up with the bile from Neil Warnock. No offence chap, but we really, really don't care what you think. We don't care about anything you have to say any more.

"Even West Ham fans know, if you ask them why they stayed up, there is only one word and that is Tevez," he droned to Sky Sports News.

No, we don't know that, any more that he doesn't seem to know that if Sheffield Utd had a) managed to maintain their considerable points advantage over the drop zone or b) not lost to Wigan on the last day of the season at home then the club wouldn't have been relegated.

“I just feel very bitter than I am not a Premier league manager still,” Warnock said. “If you only knew how much hard work it was in the seven years to get the team up to the Premier League, it was a bitter disappointment knowing Tevez shouldn't have been in the team the last few weeks."

If that was the case, how come you didn't manage to get the Blades back up again with the considerable parachute payments? How did you not stop conceding goals when you had one of the best up-and-coming centre backs in Phil Jagielka?

There's no scientific evidence that Tevez's presence kept the Hammers up, and at the end of the day, the Hammers have paid the money and that's it as far as we fans are concerned. End of.

Leeds want a slice of the pie

Oh, but it's not. Now everyone wants a piece of the action.

Leeds missed out on additional payments for striker Rob Hulse, defender Matthew Kilgallon and goalkeeper Ian Bennett after Premier League survival would have guaranteed a greater payout.

Bates said: "We sold a number of players to Sheffield United with contingencies. When they got relegated on the last day of the season we missed out on a substantial sum.

"That's what we lost and if they are being compensated for their loss we believe we should be compensated for our loss.

"There are other clubs in the same boat who have similar claims. Our's is the biggest claim and it would be nice to collect that and strengthen our squad. We are currently taking advice on it and won't be commenting further at this time."

Dear sweet Boleyn, this is just the most annoying thing to be dealing with. It's like someone coming along and saying that the club should pay compensation for originally being called Thames Ironworks FC 110 years ago.

Let's just let it die. If you want compensation, go get a piece of Sheffield United's money... Upton Park is not an ATM for everyone.

You'll all be happy to know we won 4-1 last night against Paris Dijon (We don't think it's a good name either).

However the sight of Steve Turner grabbing the bum of another player after he kept trying to kick him... that'll stay burned on the retinas.
