CandH Exclusive: How Irons will vote at crucial meeting

West Ham will not be budging from their no neutral grounds unless relegation is removed from the Premier League’s position when chairmen vote on Monday.

The PL – allegedly backed by the big clubs – is seemingly trying to pile pressure on the bottom six plus two to accept the proposal .

But the Hammers will not be complying with their wishes when the chips go down on Monday UNLESS the PL once again changes its approach.

But with the Prime Minister set to offer what is called a ‘road map’ marking out ‘ milestones’ – perhaps it would be easier to call it a timetable chaps- for an end to the current restrictions it seems reasonable to expect a vote to be taken.

However, with nothing reasonable in this process so far, a further wait for a vote could be on the cards if as is possible the plan is kicked further down the road.

However, the Hammers position would remain unchanged in all circumstances whenever the vote is taken  with a well placed source making it clear to ClaretandHugh this afternoon (Fri).

He told us by e mail “The only circumstances we will vote for neutral grounds is on the basis that there is no relegation because it remains entirely unfair to us and the others.”

  1. I can imagine that the clubs at the right end of the table want to conclude the season by any means necessary to their benefit, but it is NOT the same competition that we are looking right now so from a legal position it is legally unfair and morally wrong.
    But on top of that, it is also morally wrong to subject the players, their families and everybody associated with what it takes to go ahead with this plan to the dangers of contracting COVID.
    For all those selfish self-interested people wanting to conclude this season by any means, I’m hoping that they cancel the season to their disappointment.
    The EFL seem to understand what is going on worldwide right now. As this country death wise is still in the thick of it.

  2. I don’t understand why the Top 6 or whoever want games played at neutral grounds. Does that mean the fixtures will be rearranged so that no club has a home fixture? Why don’t the powers that be just keep an eye on the Bundesliga and see how that goes. The Bundesliga is playing out the fixtures as planned at the start of the season and obviously with no fans in the stadiums.

  3. The bottom 6 will vote against neutral grounds but as we know, it’s all about money. Any remaining doubters will receive brown envelopes and the proposals will be passed 14/6.
