Premiership Sheffield United

comment on the article

I am so disapointed by the f.a and am absolutely gutted by the way sheff utd have been relagated , they have been a hell of alot better than west ham this season and they haven't cheated to win games.

Not only is it clear in the rules of the f.a that west should of got points taken away but can you honestly say to me that sheff utd would be dwn if west ham would of got points deductiong?????

Plus if u take away tevez's contribution for the last 10 games west ham would be down , it is a pathetic stupid and most importantly very costly decision the f.a have come to and i would really like all the team the f.a dragged into the relagtion battle to sue them for being idiots.

I can say now that there will be loads of illegal signings next season.

Disgusted by the actions of west ham and the f.a , cost sheff utd the promotion they have finally achived after so much sweat and tears put in.

Ill personally be hoping west ham still get relegated becuase there is no room for cheats in the premiership

And i am a neutral!

And to think, I preferred either West Ham or Wigan to be relegated instead.

What a load of nonsense spouted by the now ex manager of Sheffield United. To suggest that United only got relegated because of the thickness of a post is ridiculous. United got relegated because the team simply did not get enough points over the whole season. The West Ham situation was always going to be tricky. I think Warnock banked on WHU getting docked points and when that didn't happen, it was all too late. If United had had the "run in" that WHU got over the last nine or so games, the team would have been nowhere near the relegation. Hence my point from which there is no escape. United simply did not produce consistently over the whole season. No I am not by any stretch a WHU fan - just a realist.

I think that the F.A were somewhat to blame for the West Ham sarger. Neil Warnock always blames everyone else. At the end of the day Warnock made mistakes and it happens to us all.doh I believe that Warnock resignation will be better for team and the club. Also the City.

I would like to add my tuppence worth for what it is but I always thought it right that who ever you are playing in the regulation zone is that you should put out your strongest team available no matter what, this is to be fair to the other teams who are or may be in trouble.Even if you are in a cup final at the end of season you still have that responsibility. Unfortunately some disregard this as Man U did against W.H. I looked back over the years and found that he 'Fergie'said of a certain manager of Derby that he was "my very good friend" and Derby scraped a win to stay up. I thought of this when the same 'Fergie' said of the W.H. manager" he's a very good friend" and them W.H. won there.Time the FA altered the rules for these end of season games and made these teams play the best side no matter what.

Thatís all very well, but where do you draw the line? Teams like Arsenal and Manchester United always field weaker teams in the Carling Cup, for example.

Also, Warnock himself fielded a weaker team when Sheffiled United visited Old Trafford because he wanted to keep his best players for matches he deemed more important to his team.

Exactly how is that any different from Ferguson saving his best players for matches he deems more important to HIS team?

You need to forget about who is involved but what has happened, A team played players who were not eligble to play. The points should be docked, they broke the FA rules.

Setting aside for one moment the question relating to the legality of the Tevez transfer to West Ham - Warnock and the others whining about how unfair it all is need to remember that Sheffield United were just not good enough to stay in the Premiership - it's a fairly simple equation, win games - stay up. As for the charge of cheating - I recall West Ham only ever having 11 players on the pitch at any one time and the referee being in charge of the game - if that's cheating then all are guilty.

SUFC went to ManU with a weakened team, expecting to lose.
WHFC beat them both times (and AFC too).
I know what team I'd rather see in the Prem next year.

Also, wasn't everyone saying the signing of the 2 argies put WHFC in the s**t at the start of the season anyway?
Didn't hear anyone other then WHFC fans complianing then.

Bad luck sheffield utd, i'm not sure they really deserved to go down and to so so by 1 goal diff is v hard.

However, i thought Warnock was above whining about what other managers do. Does anyone really think SAF and Benitez give a damn what happens at the bottom. If either of them had put out a full team you can bet your life Paul Jewell, Curbishley and Lawrie Sanchez would have said that they were doing it to help Sheffield.

Bottom line: Big clubs don't care about clubs at the bottom. They are never going to risk their best players in meaningless games.

He was right about what goes around comes around! Man Utd lost to Chelsea and Liverpool lost to AC Milan.
