Leeds Source Confirms West Ham are NOT linked with Champions League Match Fixing Scandal

(Submitted by an anonymous Leeds United fan. Grammatical errors have been corrected.)

UEFA has moved swiftly to shift any blame away from West Ham in the Champions League match fixing scandal. A UEFA source, who did not want to be named for fear of ridicule, stated: "I can confirm that West Ham United are not in one of our avenues of investigation".

This comes as a massive relief for bookmakers who stood to lose a fortune should West Ham ever qualify for the Champions League then fix a match.

When approached at home, co owner David Sullivan came to his letterbox and shouted through it, "Leave me alone you big bully", apparently mistaking our man for a football agent.

Leeds United have also been cleared. Apparently, records do not go back that far and, unlike Nottingham Forest, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and even Aston Villa, Leeds have never won the trophy anyway.

The same unidentified UEFA source confirmed, "Leeds United under Revie cheated their way to many victories through professional fouls and kicking opponents, but there is no evidence that they actually tried to fix a game. Mind you, questions are still being asked about that England game against Poland. Why, exactly, did Norman Hunter stand on the ball out on the touchline allowing Poland to break away and score?"

However the source confirmed: "It really doesn't matter now. Unlike West Ham who are in the Premiership, Leeds are so far away from qualification for European competition that they can do what the hell they like as far as we are concerned. The decision to part with their leading scorer in the January window confirms the lack of ambition at the club so we will not be wasting our time investigating a club with an average home gate of less than 20,000 and a squad of old men who only ever saw marginally better days."

    1. Back yet again! How many times have you visited today? Do show the article to all your mates, tell them how you have contributed to Hammersfan's site. Why not identify yourself then you can gain full credit for your efforts? Thanks again.

  4. No problem at all, that's why I'm carrying this article submitted by a Leeds fan. OK, I corrected his English and added a little to the original, but if I had a problem with the club, I wouldn't give this sort of exposure to one of your fans would I? And bless him, he visits this site every five minutes to post comments and regularly looks in on my West Ham site too so he deserves his 24 hours of fame. I do like to reward my regular readers.

    2. Yes billy bremner in heaven,if he was english he would of been lifting the world cup instead of gobby moore,if hobby was as good as u think he was he'd of played for a top team like bremner and john charles,true greats

      Delete
    3. He only got 54 caps for Scotland! Wouldn't have got as many as 30 for England! Like his mates Norman Hunter (28) Allan Clarke (19), Paul Madeley (24), Paul Reaney (3) and Mick Jones (3). In fact, add that lot to Charlton's 35 and you end up with 111, three more caps than Moore won alone!

    4. Bremner was a true legend in engish football and played in a great team,gobby never played for a great club, he's basically like mat le tisser

    5. the thing that really warms my heart about Booby Moore, was that he got to see Leeds lift another title before he died :-)

    6. Your encyclopedic knowledge of the Revie team is truely amazing.
      Why don't you listen to your friend(s) and go join Gazza in the clinic. Your addiction is equally as disturbing as his.

    7. whilst I have every respect for Moore, Hurst and Peters, all magificiant old school players. Your further attack on Revies sqaud is rubbish. Leeds leading up to the 1970 World cup finals had 12 international players, English, Scottish, Irish and Welsh.has there ever been another squad of players ever to carry so much Talent. as for your attack on Bremner his era was for hard men, the game was different, all Legends as for Madeley, the only outfield positon he never played was goal keeper, after his footballing Career he became a miilionaire he excelled in life and on the feild of play.

  6. just had a quick look on wet spams wiki page and found this little nugget of information.....

    West Ham has never won the league title. The club's best final league position is third place in the 1985–86 (old) First Division.

    hhhhmmm not that good is it, not even 2nd best.....

  14. know your history pal....
    Bobby Moore wanted to sign for Leeds in 1966, so much so
    he refused to sign a contract for West Ham.
    The only reason Moore signed was because Alf Ramsey threatened him that because he was out of contract he could not play for England, so he signed for West Ham. Check the record, check the guys track record

    2. Ron Greenwoods Biography

      At the end of the 1965-66 season Don Revie, the manager of Leeds United, attempted to buy Moore, who wanted to leave the club. Moore, whose contract with West Ham came to an end on 30th June, 1966. Moore, who refused to sign a new contract, went to see Greenwood about the move: "There was no way we could negotiate. West Ham said they would not let me go in any circumstances. Ron and I had it out for hours. Finally we agreed to let it ride until after the World Cup."

      He wanted to leave for Leeds and was blackmailed

      Delete
    3. Revie may well have wanted him, who could blame him, but Moore wanted to join Spurs - and believe you me it hurts to say that. Why would Moore have wanted to Join Leeds in the summer of 66? Leeds had won nothing at that point. And anyway, Moore was a London lad, he didn't own a flat cap or a whippet.

      Delete
    4. He wanted to leave WH for Leeds (he refused to sign a new WH contract bungholio)...you seem to have completely conveniently missed that FACT

    5. Flat cap and whippet
      is that a flippant racist comment?

      "defined as views, practices and actions reflecting the belief that humanity is divided into distinct groups and that members can share certain attributes which make that group as a whole less desirable or inferior"

      Rather disappointing chum

      Delete
    6. Yeah Moore did really well as a manager, whatever you say about Don Revie at least he got a reply from the FA!, He was contacted BY THE FA. He didn't have to write a begging letter like Moore!........whooosh..........bin

      Oh you bring out the nastiness in me....haha

  15. a quote from the great man himself

    Bobby Moore argued that: "When we won the two cups Ron had a good team because he had a majority of good players. We could have gone on to dominate the game for a period, the way Leeds did"

    Nah never happened pal and it is now 2013!

  16. And for those who didn't think that the armchair hammer was obsessed,the 20.14 comment has arrived at the station. Commendations for the painstaking research though. Armchair was mis-diagnosed with ringworm a few years back until careful analysis revealed it was indeed Leeds United that had got under his skin. He's sitting actually counting the hits now,he ran out of fingers and had to use curtain rings. Let's await the predictable reply.

    2. I'm afraid i pissed all over your paulista article and every other article you've written and it took me 5 mins on a monday morning. You writing is akin to a scoolkids contribution to a school magazine except your west ham blog has fewer readers and comments. Your attempts at humour are tragic,how many time have you used the "get the hump" line whilst referring to camels? Or the fact that your "wind up" has lasted almost a year. You are a piss poor writer who knows next to nothing about his subject. I suggest you go back to your armchair,cheap beer and cheap food, you sad lonely person.
