    How old is she? Maybe we have to wait until she retires and the new issue ceo will let us go.

    They or anyone for that matter on any court verdict have to have grounds to appeal, just disagreeing with the verdict isn't grounds. This judge has said their appeal was too late so where would any grounds be on that ? If they did appeal the other party could counter sue for frivolous action and that could cost sisu a lot of dosh if they lost that one, we might just might be looking at the end of sisu here.

    very few options left for SISU and none are very palatable for them.

    The action they brought for JR2 missed the point of a judicial review, was poorly constructed and misunderstood the facts procedures and process. You cannot just throw reams of "evidence" around painting a half picture hoping it might stick. Lot of reputations other than Seppala damaged by such poorly constructed/founded arguments. It just amounts to misuse of the legal process in my opinion

    Time they stopped wasting everyone's time and money, time they stopped damaging our club and its reputation, time they were gone and good riddance

    I doubt it. They've clearly flown by the seat of their pants the whole time they've been here, including the takeover itself.

    How long do we have left for this to run? The judge was stressing the amount of delay being detrimental to wasps, when they inevitably appeal, does this mean it might be hurried along a bit quicker?

    CT reckon that the SISU QC is assuming there will be an appeal... I guess we will see what they decide in due course, is there a time frame to apply to the court of appeal? I can't see the point given that there surely can't be any more evidence, and what would they be appealing the JR or the ability to change the claim and include "expert" evidence?

    Please just piss off and let me support a football team without this shite...

    Sisu QC says he anticipates his clients will seek permission to appeal. Judge says that should be made to court of appeal

    Bloody great

    Have they settled the JR1 costs? Now they have to settle JR2 also

    Those that are liable are
    ARVO - not based in the UK
    CCFC holdings Ltd (wound up years ago)
    SBS&L - only "asset" is the shares in Otium
    Otium - essentially CCFC - only assets Ryton, the trademark, players .............. all charged to ARVO in the Cayman Islands

    Does SISU Capital owe anything? Can Seppala or Coleman be held personally liable?, I wouldn't think so.

    I dont know mate - I'd wager her legal team are probably paid regardless and therefore budgeted for, but do they have to pay the other sides legal bill? Have they had to pay out for JR1 and the like?

    Regardless, the cost is quite high in reputation and "face" I would think.

    Her face is desperate for more botox. Shall we have a collection for a new blonde wig for her?

    Are you suggesting that they just won't pay any costs? Surely SISU wouldn't dream of that...

    I would hope that paying costs would be a precursor to any appeal. Is there risk that they could just not pay and risk being put into default, thus putting CCFC into admin? They would also be in contempt of court wouldn't they?

    Didn't they eventually pay something like £400K on JR1?

    Pretty sure you told me non of this JR business affects Wasps at all.
    Hopefully you now understand how much it did potentially affect Wasps.
    It would have destroyed them as a business.

    You can't keep trying to destroy people on the one hand. They also demand a good working relationship with them when you need them on the other hand.
    Just common sense and a very bizzare thing to do.

    That's the two options in my book.
    Try for the championship play offs
    Or Asset strip.
    I think the championship has now moved to another level unfortunately.
    The time to have done that was the last 5 years.
    So I think it will be one go at promotion this year followed by an asset strip and sell Hoffman the bones that are left.
    No stadium, no training facility, no academy facility and any player worth a dime sold.
    Effectively the Hoffman consortium will be buying the Golden Share.

    He has encouraged this type of approach ever since we stopped paying rent then reneged on a hand shake.
    He has been wrong on every action he supported so far.
    Let's hope he is finally right about something this time that there will be no appeal.
    Unfortunately I feel he will be wrong once again.

    Said this years ago. There comes a point where the council will have a solid case.

    Three years ago I could give you the benefit of the doubt, but now it's just delusion.

    At every step you have been wrong.

    Time to accept it and move on. You backed the wrong horse and let your hatred of the council cloud your judgement.

    The shit the likes of you Nick and Grendel have been spewing towards anyone that didn't join you has been ridiculous. Be a man and accept you fucked up.

    There is no conspiracy, there are no plants, we just have shitty owners.

    Joy Seppala's statement was very interesting because it shows what her true intentions have been all along. She described the 250 year lease as a game changer because it made it economically desirable to knock down the stadium and use the land for other purposes with CCFC moving to a new location.

    This is exactly why I and others on here did not want CCC to sell ACL to SISU (or Wasps). Joy viewed the ground as a land redevelopment opportunity while CCFC would be either homeless or moved to a smaller cheaper ground most likely even further away from the city center.

    That's an interesting take on it. I never really thought of her comments in that way before reading your post and I have to say it's possible. Maybe the vail slipped a little there.

    That's what i've been trying to tell people I know, it hardly changes anything with SISU and the club, they don't invest in the club anymore, they'll just keep growing the debt against us and bide their time.

    Could also apply to the other side too, Wasps that is.
