Clint shares his views on the Javier Mascherano and Carlos Tevez debate involving West Ham United and their fine as opposed to points deduction. As he points out it's not ALL about the relegation threatened sides!
All the talk of the Hammers has been centred around the likes of Charlton, Sheff Utd and Wigan but what about other clubs like ours??
A little while back we were beaten in a game that we should never have been beaten in at home to the Hammers, and not only was Tevez offside and the ball never crossed the line! But now it seems that the player himself was ineligible for the game even. Now am I the only one that considers this to be as much an injustice as the bottom 5-6 clubs have said there fight with the Hammers seems to be?
Yes they are talking about being relegated from the league when the TV money has gone up and this is lot of money, money which Rovers will receive I know, and I feel for these clubs that should not have put in this position as I believe that West Ham should be deducted points for breaking the rules, which they surely knew they were doing. There is an argument for past regimes and stuff but the club itself should be punished.
But for the point I'm making about MY team - Rovers, it seems a kick in the spools for our run towards a 2nd season in UFEA Cup and the extra money that this brings. While we are a smaller club in the league who have done really well with bargain buys and such when you get the opportunity to test your team against some of the best in Europe whilst making some extra cash then you have to take it.
The West Ham defeat, which was never a defeat at the time now takes on a new level, as Blackburn certainly lost 1pt and quite possibly all 3pts then this would have given us some more room in the tight run in for Top 7 and I certainly believe that should the other clubs, who have a case against the punishment handed out, then I think so do Rovers and maybe other teams that West Ham have taken points off this season whilst playing Tevez and Mascherano.
Maybe I'm wrong but.....................
