PL letter on way to Irons and Baggies

The Premier League are to write to West Ham United and West Bromwich Albion over the possibility they committed a breach of regulations during the Tuesday night game between the two sides.

They will be seeking to discover whether Sam Allardyce’s claim that the two clubs agreed that Robert Snodgrass would not play in the game following his transfer is in fact the case.

The Times has reported the PL’s actions following Sam Allardyce’s explanation to a BT Sport reporter before the game.

He then went on to say that should the Premier League get involved he would reserve his answers to any questions they may ask him to them.

However, West Ham have denied any written arrangement or gentlemen’s agreement existed.

West Brom’s explanation could well be put to down to Allardyce winding up his interviewer given that the Baggies boss often displays a somewhat odd sense of humour.

  1. Consider that snoddy himself preferred not to play against his West Ham team mates having only just left West Ham and you might be closer to the truth of it.

  2. Replies to any PL letter should be very short and brief. No point in digging any holes or allowing PL to ask further questions about something that is none of their business.
    ‘We confirm there has been no breach of Premier League rules’.

  3. Entertainment. That is everything about professional football. Would not be entertaining one little bit if answers to all questions were given by Gareth Southgate or his scriptwriters. But, he has never done anything wrong. But he has never done anything.
    Get over the forensics – let’s talk and have a giggle now and then.
