Brady's mobile phone records were obtained during an investigation which centred around the bidding process for the Olympic Stadium.

Tottenham asked the firm PKF to investigate that process.

Howard Hill, Richard Forrest and Lee Stewart all pleaded guilty on 8 November to illegally obtaining confidential information on West Ham directors and officials from the Olympic Park Legacy Company.

Tottenham strongly deny any claims of spying and it was said in court one of the investigators had told the club he did not believe he had been acting illegally.

Hill was fined £100,000 as the main investigator, with Judge McCreath saying: "You had full control over this project. You engaged others to do your dirty work for you."

Stewart was fined £13,250. The judge said his involvement was limited to two of the victims.

Forrest was fined £10,000. The judge said, like Stewart, he had acted on Hill's instructions.

As well as Brady, victims included fellow joint-chairman David Sullivan and Ian Tomkins of West Ham, along with a number of Olympic officials and the Mayor of Newham, Sir Robin Wales.

David Gold, another joint-chairman of the Hammers, was named as someone who became the focus of attention.

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
