It has just hit the news that Hull have been charged with fielding an
unregistered player at the end of January '09.
Apparently when they signed Kamil Zayatte from Young Boys for £2.5M on 23
January this year, there had been some irregularities with the transfer and
he was not formerly registered when Hull drew 2-2 with West Brom. West Brom
have been awarded 3 points for that game instead of 1 but it has made no
difference to them, they are still relegated.
However Hull have been stripped of their point, which puts them on the same
points as Newcastle but with a poorer goal difference.
Newcastle have complained immediately and if our claim is upheld, Hull will
be relegated retrospectively and the Toon will stay up!
Carlsberg don't do e-mails for delusional Geordies but if they did they
would probably be the best e-mails in the world!
