    I think it will.

    The novelty is wearing off slowly but surely. It took us a few seasons before an average of 16-17k in the Championship whereas the average in the first few seasons was over 20k IIRC.

    It would be even quicker if our fans stopped going and also if they have a bad season but I suppose that is impossible as they are the richest rugby team in the universe

    Given the trouble we are in no real fans would attend.

    That would be the equivalent if spitting on Jimmy Hills grave.

    Been admiring your work on the Cet site against the idiot Wollyback I don't believe there is a bigger twat in this city if he is real.

    Someone in the office wearing a Wasps shirt today.

    I want to throw sulphuric acid in her face.

    As you asked a question and not a statement...

    No

    Serious note though it does annoy me.

    The sooner everybody accepts that Wasps are here to stay the quicker we can move on. That includes Sisu if they still have any doubts.

    CCFC need to work within that constraint as there is no doubt that they will need to negotiate with Wasps in the short term on Stadium and Academy.

    Nothing will happen until the legals are dropped and Wasps will offer a higher but fair deal if the current deal runs out.

    They seem to be here to stay but it doesn't mean that I have to like it or help them to stay and the people who pay to attend their games are going that.

    Do you know what they will offer then? If not it is all guess work and they may offer nothing or something at to large a price.

    Can't help but feel if the crowds were under 5K people wouldn't be so sure stating they are here to stay.

    Folks look! Assume the worst - Wasps are here forever...then think what is best for CCFC from that point on.
    Personally I think that NOW we need sisu out of the equation.
    What comes next heaven knows!

    The sooner you get a different tedious drum to bang, the quicker we can stop these horrendously dull circles.

    The problem with making statements like this is they always come home to haunt you.

    Pretty poor for top flight sport, the richest club in Europe. That average is continuing to fall.

    So you are saying what? You are pleased this weekend that more supported the franchise than CCFC?

    You are proud of that.

    Fucking hell.

    What? With SISU gone, the club is dead and liquidated, unless there's a massive buy-out with subsequent HEAVY investment. Do people not understand this?

    Yes, we want them gone, as well as Wasps, IT ISN'T HAPPENING ANYTIME SOON. This is the hand we're dealt, it's shit and we're leaving the Blackjack table with security manhandling us out of the door.

    Reality, like women, is harsh and painful. Wasps, meh, let them have their moment.

    The only thing I'll say is that this is pretty close to peak Wasps. Stacks of money spent on the squad, tons of publicity, big name players, a season or two of giveaways to loss-lead fans in.

    Even if Wasps win the Prem this year, there's not much more that they can achieve, so ultimately attendance-wise things aren't going to get much better than this for them. What we're seeing at the Ricoh is the reality of a minority sport. I love rugby, but attendances and interest except for the odd big game are never going to stand up to football.

    It might do, if there wasn't already an established football and rugby team in the city. Although they might be able to get at least one of those blockages moved. That said, the people of Coventry, apart from a boom period in the 60s / 70s, have never really supported their teams in the sorts of numbers Wasps want.

    Then again, we don't know what their projections are based on. Perhaps 12k crowds is enough.

    I saw an article the other day about them building a hotel, do not know where but they have a strategy to expand as a leisure business.
    http://www.spaopportunities.com/detail.cfm?pagetype=detail&subject=news&codeID=320122
    and I just found this one about an indoor leisure centre near the Ricoh
