Following an appeal from a very long time ago by Sheffield United, they have now been allowed to join the Premier League at the expense of Burnley.
This appeal was made following the Tevez saga, in which Carlos Tevez, signed illegally by West Ham, put Sheffield United to the sword in the 2006/07 season. Originally, Sheffield United received compensation from West Ham United, but that was it. No points deducted, and Sheffield United remained in the Championship.
However, in a shock twist, the original appeal (that was considered thrown out by the English legal system) has now been accepted, putting Sheffield United back into the Premier League.
It is unlikely that Sheffield United chairman, Dave Green wanted this for the club, but he has not appealed against this decision. Nigel Clough has since resigned, and a new manager, unknown Thomas Donaldson (an ex-Blades player) will take over.
In the event that Sheffield United win the Premier League, a person who bets £1 will get £1000 in return with SkyBet. Even their survival will earn the same person £400.
