You will all be absolutely shocked to learn that, despite having their appeal on their Olympic Stadium bid rightfully shut down, Daniel Levy and the Tottenham Hotspur board are not going down quietly. Nope, they're going to continue to press this like the rich kid who didn't do their homework, got a B, and then won't stop harassing the teacher for unfairly ruining their chances of getting into Harvard. We will now be making oral arguments in front of the high court, because we think West Ham United are big stupid doo-doo heads or some other such nonsense. Here is the official club statement on the matter:

The Club has today (Wednesday) applied to the High Court to renew its application for permission to bring a claim against the London Borough of Newham and the Olympic Park Legacy Company, the Mayor of London and Government Ministers for judicial review of their decisions underlying the bid process for the conversion of the Olympic Stadium after the 2012 Games. Under this process the Club now has the opportunity to present its case at an oral hearing at the High Court.

I think we're being big babies about this, which I've written about in the past. Everything I wrote in that article I just linked is still applicable. Stop embarrassing yourselves, guys.
