According to a report by the Evening Standard, via West Ham News, the gentleman’s agreement for Robert Snodgrass not to feature during the Irons’ 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion was ‘never committed to writing‘ – with many Hammers reacting to what one fan hailed as ‘good news for West Ham‘.
This comes as the Premier League investigate West Ham and GSB for a potential breach in competition law, with the agreement over Snodgrass now at the centre of intense debate.
Following up on these allegations, the Evening Standard report that the Baggies and West Ham never disclosed their Snodgrass arrangement on paper and it was more of an informal deal – leading Irons to react as this potentially ‘good news’ emerges.
This update also hints at the verbal agreement holding a boost for GSB, with the league outlawing any ‘formal’ agreement by the letter of the law.
Indeed, some supporters now believe this may hand them an advantage, whilst others simply dropped their array of opinions.
