    They appeared too although I don't understand how a company being liquidated can actually do that.
    Also the value that Wasps bought it at was about right. After all it was a stadium where the tenant appeared to not want to buy it and had a deal to return to Sixfields at anytime and had done it before.
    Who knows what happens in that situation if Wasps bid had been swatted. I can understand why CCC took the deal.

    So there was nothing wrong with SISU's "charitable" offer then was there if it was about right?

    There is more to an offer than the money.

    Good post Dave.

    You will be waiting a long time for Italia to reply, as he tends to ignore posts he cant answer, and is probably right now researching if its raised Sunderlands profile.:whistle:

    If not he is probably already planning his trip as Rihanna has now put Coventry, Sunderland, Manchester, Cardiff and London on the map. I bet London are pleased their profiles been raised so much. ;)

    Really you think you are so clever. What dont you understand about the fact I like taking the piss out of you. I enjoy it.

    I dont need bait, I just think you are an arse, and will happilly post whether you think you have left a cunning trap or not. (akin to Baldricks cunning plans)

    By the way I recall meeting you quite a few years ago. I thought you were an arse then as well.

    Anyway will you be going to the concert ?

    No you were talking about yourself. Bloody hell it was boring. (Joke)

    If you talked football occasionally you would probably be more interesting. (Joke) I might even enjoy a bit of banter with you, rather than tediously arguing with you.

    Perhaps we should try civility. I respond to your posts because I disagree. You havent netted me, I just disagree wholeheartedly. Perhaps I could try being more polite. Perhaps you could. I could also tone the language. Do you concur?

    Haha. I have been a bit off the scale recently, and need to reign myself in. I can debate a bit better than I have recently.

    Its probably going to make a more valid point on a subject if I am not mud slinging, and name calling, and to be fair to Italia, I wouldnt speak to him like it in real life, and have been acting like a keyboard warrior.

    Everyone does it mate except OSB, he's far too polite. It would cheer me up no end if one day he lost it and were to tell someone to fuck off.
    Italia is very good at grinding people's gears tbh. All part of forum banter though.

    Seems exactly the same to me as before we left for Northampton, or did Ricoh never get big concerts, snooker, davis cup tennis, olympic football, international football before Wasps arrived?

    Whilst italia is busy creaming himself over the Rihanna concert, the reality is that old ACL didn't do that well out of the other massive concerts held at the Arena. It's obviously a coup for them but it isn't necessarily the money spinner he thinks it is. I think the concert promoters effectively take over everything or nearly everything and pay the venue a flat fee, might be wrong.

    Think you are right, and with the plethora of arenas now available to the event organizers as well as the obvious competition from Birmingham I'd hazard a guess the Ricoh would have had to offer its services and facilities pretty cheaply to beat Birmingham to the gig. All about perception and image for them at the moment rather than the bottom line.

    And the Ricoh had to "bid" for the event too. Let's hope they didn't bid too much...

    While posting in another thread of Wasps throwing money at additional entertainment on match days it got me wondering how their Marianne Faithful show went. Quick google tells me it got cancelled due to poor ticket sales (strangely didn't seem to be a problem on the rest of the tour).

    Of course at the very least the artist will have taken a 50% fee deposit, although in all likelihood a cancellation for poor sales will mean they are still liable to pay the full fee. Oddly enough I don't seem to recall much press coverage of the cancellation.
