The Blades became the final-day fall guys as they succumbed to a 2-1 home defeat to Wigan who, along with West Ham, leapfrogged their opponents to pull off a miraculous escape. However, McCabe remains furious that The Hammers were given the chance to avoid relegation following their controversial signings of Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano. The East Londoners were handed a £5.5 million fine rather than a points reduction and the Sheffield United supremo has once again called for The Premier League to reconsider the punishment. "What leaves a bad taste for football is that it (the relegation battle) has not quite been played on a level playing field with the West Ham issue," McCabe told Sky Sports News. "The FA Premier League should have a good night's sleep and think `is what has happened fair?' "The fans of one club are in despair because their club has been relegated. To have the kick in the teeth of losing our (Premiership) status because we have played by the rules when another club hasn't... it ain't cricket. "We have played to the rules and one club hasn't played by the rules and the FA Premier League should do something about it." Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
