Spurs Set To Steal 4th Place?
Tottenham Hotspur have made an unprecidented attempt to have the match between West Ham replayed after Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, wrote an 'open letter' to the board of the Premier League.
10 Tottenham players allegedly suffered food poisoning after eating a meal at the Marriot hotel, Spurs were then ordered to play the fixture (note I say were ordered to play the fixture and not ordered to play those players) and lost 2-1, and with Arsenal winning 4-2 at home to Wigan, Spurs lost any hope of finishing 4th.
Now it seems, Spurs are making a last ditch effort to get the game replayed with Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy accusing the Premier League of an 'abdication of its duty'.
The Premier League quickly issued a statement saying the result stands but a meeting will take place tomorrow to disscuss the contents of the letter.
I feel Tottenham have little chance of being sucessful in their quest as, even though the events were a tad unfortunate, Martin Jol was not forced to select the players he did, hell, Danny Murphy was not effected by the 'food poisioning' yet still remained on the bench.
