Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher has once again taken aim at West Ham United and vice-chairman Karren Brady.

Carragher is continuing his crusade to ensure the Premier League season is not voided.

And that appears to have put him on a collision course with West Ham and unpopular vice-chairman Brady.

West Ham’s battle against relegation has been on hold since the beginning of March after football was shutdown due to the global health crisis.

The country will find out if lockdown measures will be eased this Sunday.

Prem’s Project Restart sparks widespread debate

The Premier League is working on Project Restart to get the remaining matches completed.

But that will only be possible behind closed doors and at a set number of neutral venues as dictated by the government and police (The Mirror).

Brady made it clear in her latest column in The Sun, that West Ham are not fans of the neutral stadium idea.


West Ham – via Brady – have become one of the most outspoken clubs of the crisis. Only Brighton have joined Brady in making their stance clear.

Brady was savaged when she became the first Premier League club official to break ranks and declare the season should be ‘null and void’ at the start of the outbreak (The Sun).

Carragher gunning for West Ham and Brady once again

Carragher took aim at West Ham and Brady in particular to make in his recent column in The Telegraph headlined “The season must finish – clubs threatened with relegation cannot be allowed to postpone game’s return.”

And speaking on Sky Sports’s Football Show yesterday, Carragher was at it again, this time accusing the likes of West Ham and Brady of contradicting themselves and self-interest.

“The thing that disappoints me is that a couple of weeks ago I wrote a newspaper article about the bottom six clubs being vocal about reasons the league shouldn’t go on, and they were legitimate reasons,” Carragher said on Sky Sports.

“What really got me off the back of the last meeting was that it has since emerged that the clubs weren’t opposed to neutral venues; because as soon as relegation was taken off the table, it was fine to play at neutral grounds.

‘They’ve lost their argument and sympathy’

“Those clubs around the bottom lost a bit of their argument when that came out. For so long they’ve been vociferous speaking about reasons, and that’s what we want.

“The teams at the top find it very difficult to talk about the season going on because it looks insensitive, whereas it’s completely different for teams at the bottom. But a lot of that, when they said it was OK to play at neutral venues when relegation was scrapped, I just thought it really ruined their argument.

“I think they lost a little bit of sympathy, the teams at the bottom, who have been arguing about different, legitimate reason why they shouldn’t play. But as soon as relegation was taken off the table they were fine with it. That doesn’t really sit well.”
