Lost In Translation (Revisited)

Julien Faubert has today refuted comments suggesting he has been unhappy with the training methods at West Ham United since joining the club last summer from Bordeaux. The under-fire winger gave a candid interview to French radio channel RNC a few days ago in which he discussed his experiences of living and playing in English football. Subsequently, certain aspects of that discussion- which was reproduced in detail here on Tuesday- were taken out context by the English media and subverted into a scathing criticism by the player of the club and his team-mates. Speaking on the official site this afternoon, Faubert reiterated: "I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here so far and I am really enjoying every minute. Everything here is very professional and my team-mates are all top-class players who have been totally supportive. I hope between now and the end of the season to make a big impact and help the club finish as high as possible."

Elsewhere, The Independent has rehashed the story that broke yesterday concerning the £7million writ filed at the Chancery Division of the High Court by Kia Joorabchian. Jason Burt suggests the saga surrounding Carlos Tevez's controversial season at West Ham United is now set to rumble on for up to another nine months with Sheffield United among the interest parties who are watching events closely. The Blades tried unsuccessfully to get West Ham United demoted for fielding Tevez after being found guilty of breaching the rules on third-party ownership. A Football Association arbitration panel is due to rule next month on their claim. Referring to this latest legal action, Burt claims Joorabchian is bullish about his chances and is also prepared for the issue to go to court if necessary. Yesterday, a West Ham United spokesperson insisted the club would contest vigorously the claim as they believe no verbal or written agreements exist to back up Joorabchian's stance.

Nice photoshopping but a picture of Scarlett Johansson would've been better.
