Legally they are on very weak ground

Their owner is a crackpot so he’s trying to strong arm compensation out of us and avoid paying Silva. We may get a fine but only if they can prove an illegal approach. If we & Silva shut up then unless they have written evidence it is all hearsay as we will just say we made two formal approaches. They rejected both. We tried to change their mind. They said no. We appointed Sam. Watford’s Case is weakened as they not we leaked the original approach to the press and we can prove that apparently. Messy but unlikely to cost us more than a bit of money to make Watford shut up.
