As predicted by Vital Arsenal (and most of the Western world) Tottenham Hotspur have failed in their attempts to get their controversial fixture against West Ham replayed.
I won't bore you with the incidents leading upto the request as everyone has heard them all a million times, but needless to say, their efforts were futile.
The Premier League board believe that there was 'no grounds to stage a replay' in a statement issued earlier today.
The statement said,
'THFC did have the option of not fulfilling the fixture and will have made its own assessment of the risks associated with that decision.'
'It would have been for an independent commission to have decided the merits of your case; rule on any sanction and/or the appropriateness of a replay.'
'The board does not wish to jeopardise the respect and excellent relationship that exists between us and THFC.'
'We remain very sympathetic to the unenviable position you found yourselves in and hope that neither THFC or any other club will suffer the same fate again.'
'However, we believe we expedited our responsibilities effectively and with due care and consideration based on the facts available to us.'
'We of course realise that for THFC a feeling of unfairness at the ill-fated events of last Sunday will linger, but trust that you will put this behind you and concentrate on domestic and UEFA Cup success next season.'
Justice is served and we can all get on with enjoying the summer and the forth coming world cup.
Oh wait, hold on, we've got one last match to play haven't we!!
