    Totally agree - seems to be a ploy SISU would use judging on past experiences! I wouldn't trust them an inch.

    Struggle to think any supporter could object to the three points put forward. All things you would expect a local council to do as a matter of course.
    Good that its SISU rather than the club / Fisher and having someone independent overseeing things and the FL involved as well can only be a good thing.

    If the council have any sense they should agree to the three points. In the unlikely event SISU are serious then everyone should be behind it. In the more likely scenario that its all part of some plan the council coming out and saying we're 100% behind the club would give SISU a problem - they'd have to move forward or admit it was all BS. In either scenario we move closer to the end game.

    Wonder if his 'exclusive' will be the same story spun from a council / Wasps perspective or something setting us up for being kicked out and it not being Wasps fault. Can't imagine its something totally unrelated given the timing.

    The CET dont have access to CCFC so I guess the Observer gets all the info first.
    From what I see at the expense of having to be a Sisu mouth piece.
    Mind you for a few on here it looks like they are pushing against an open door.

    Everybody needs to start again, the legal action needs to be exhausted and if we are still at the Ricoh then proper long term discussions for the only option at the Ricoh can then start. Until then we just need to wait as any discussions will be pointless.

    Minutes of the October 7, 2014 meeting of Coventry City Council – in which Labour and Conservative councillors in private approved the deal to sell the Ricoh to then London Wasps Holdings Limited – show one condition of the deal had been that the football club’s “future and security” would not be compromised.
    I hope this part of the original deal is printed and handed to everyone involved.
    Ccc put those conditions in , let's hope they ensure they are adhered to.

    That's the question that the council should be getting hammered with. Even if its not in writing its what we were told.

    No the only paper that Tim will speak to see that as you will.

    I fail to see how giving a London rugby franchise a 250 year lease on the Ricoh does anything for the football clubs future & security

    .... because CCFC could not afford to buy and run the stadium from D1. I think TF would agree.
    .... because putting a viable concern into the Ricoh may just give CCFC the only chance it has.
    However, I don't think Sisu and a few on here realise this and still think CCFC could just take it over and run it.

    CCFC are stronger with Wasps and Wasps are stronger with CCFC. Neither needs Sisu.

    I would say the local media, CWR, Telegraph and Observer.

    Anything I've enquired about has always been batted back as commercially confidential. Easy to do to a member of the public, bit trickier if you have the media on your case.

    I have spoken to my local councillor but it needs everyone to do it, they cant keep on fobbing us off if they realise it is a big issue at the moment it seems like the same half a dozen lunatics asking.

    When you read it does it all sound relevant to you as precursor for starting talks?

    Nothing wrong with borrowing money if you have a plan to pay it back.
    The juries still out on the long term business case but its got off to a flying start.

    SISU mouth piece? Hello pot, kettle here!

    This is a bit rich from someone who benefits financially from Wasps and then posts on a daily basis that the Wasps/Ricoh option is the only option.

    So I'd take a long, hard look at yourself before trying to accuse someone else of being a mouthpiece. I don't think anyone's accused Reid of taking money from SISU, whereas you're clearly making money from Wasps. Using your own logic, why should anyone take what you say what you say at face value?

    As for the true intentions of SISU here, it's perfectly fair to be cynical - who wouldn't be. But at least talking would be something, what's to lose.

    I like Andy Turner, he's a good journalist and cares about CCFC. The very reason I don't like Gilbert, so it's not a whole CT thing for me.

    Wasps will go bust as there is no way they can pay back the £45m debt they have around there neck.

    You can keep on re bonding or what ever it's called but eventually the debt will catch up...

    Whats benefitting financially from Wasps got to do with saying CCFC at the Ricoh is the only option? It makes no difference financially to me whether CCFC are here or not.
    Hardly a Wasps mouthpiece posting on here.
    You need to show me where I talk Wasps up as well. My reasoning is what is realistic for CCFC.
    If slagging off Sisu and pointing out there shit policies is the reason the I'm guilty as charged.
    Love to be advised how discussions can take place between all parties when Sisu are taking CCC and Wasps to court ?

    I have simply said that entering discussions to stop legal wranglings must be a good thing for WASPs ( if they are intended to be involved in such )
    I assume you disagree?
