    And the financial soap opera known as West Ham United had a good new episode today

    http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story ... et&cc=5901

    Seems that when the former CEO was fired by the owner, he was promised about 1.2million quid, and has received 100k so far.

    Interesting quote about the overall viability of the club:

    Wow! The financial instability of the current ownership PLUS their complicity in the Tevez/Mascherano affair should be worth some point deductions -- now I'm not saying they should be docked 45 points or anything [that's only for malfeasance of PREVIOUS owners of LOWER DIVISION clubs], but certainly some Premier League board has to be taken to the woodshed.

    If the FA is going to punish them I'm sure it'll just be due to the financial instability; it'd be unseemly to hand out punishment relating to the Tevez/Mascherano stuff and potentially cast aspersions on Man United and Liverpool, who we all know are beyond reproach. :roll:
