    Speculation has been
    a) Concert
    b) Naming rights
    c) Armegeddon
    etc.. etc..

    You never know it might even explain why Fisher is attending a forum..

    Anyway.. bullshit away, I know nothing.

    Can he at least not say if it is CCFC related or not?

    Naming rights - Nowt to do with us.

    Seat colour change - Nowt to do with us.

    No deal after next year - Very much something to do with us.

    Giblet? He'll undoubtedly include that in his next batch of hilarious tweet messages.

    I am salivating as we speak.

    If its to do with the Ricoh going to be one of these

    1) naming rights
    2) either deal done to stay or CCFC are leaving
    3) JR2

    1) not important to CCFC fans, 2) no talks going on so unlikely 3) I would guess its this

    If it was anything particularly interesting they would be releasing the news immediately in case the Observer got in on it first. You don't sit on major news no matter how tinpot the organisation.

    Strange that none of the other local news outlets have mentioned anything.

    Pretty much, it wouldn't be scheduled for 5AM if it was massive important news.

    What was it the last time he hyped it up like that?

    Yep.

    I notice he says the news will get lots of us talking. He doesn't say 'all of us.'

    If it were no deal, or new deal, or kicked out we would all be talking about it.

    Either naming rights (but surely only a few of us would be talking about that), or it's changing the colour of some of the seating. That would get a few talking, but not everyone.

    Let me guess, Wasps have joined up with a new football club for next season: SISU Rovers FC.

    In all seriousness, whenever Gilbert posts something like that it makes me want to do anything but click.

    The problem is he's such a fucking narcissist he's happy we're talking about him even if the majority are calling him a lego c**t who's about as good a journalist as sisu are football club owners.

    Hope it's JLR as sponsors, expect it to be major Tupperware convention coming to Cov.

    There will be a few punches thrown this week. Fisher outside the meeting and Gilbert outside the telegraph at this rate. Both cunts and playing us along. About time these fookers stopped making money from our misery.

    Wasps are lowering expectations of their worth regarding naming rights so they at some point will get their way with that. However it seems somewhat inconceivable that they would not have a global press launch for that.

    I have heard they are looking at doing some significant re-branding work on the stadium. Could be an exclusive on that I suppose

    Or perhaps Englebert Humperdink is having An Evening With there.

    Probably some shit about a pie and a pint offer at Wasps games.

    If it is the seat colours it will be sisus fault and people will lap it up.
