    What do you people reckon? What's our chances of being moved there next season?

    was told by a very unreliable source that it's almost a dead cert though I's say with the ongoing legal proceedings that it's fairly likely. I'm not sure I'd mind it too much in fairness

    Unlikely in the extreme.

    One straight after the other. If we start the day off at 11 am City can kick off about 8.30pm.

    The Butts pitch will easily take 5 games in one day.

    Although we thought we would never go to Sixfields, I think being at the Butts NEXT season is even more unlikely.

    Something is deffo ticking away behind the scenes though.

    What would be funny is if we HAD arranged to play at the Butts next season and then we get promoted.

    Never has been an option for me. I think it was used as a pawn to both placate fans that there were options, and in negotiations with the Ricoh.

    0% - Wapsies are struggling for form - still need to fund the interest on the debt they have - CCFC makes the stadium ( Ricoh) more viable - with our timely progress back up the leagues * its a distinct possibility for a deal to be had for at least one year more

    * disclaimer - absolutely everything

    Can't see it. Think we're more likely to be back at Sixfields and I don't think that'll happen.

    Yeah be great getting a full house of 3,000-5,000 in League One when we could be getting 15,000 plus at the Ricoh.

    Agree with him on the Ricoh though. It's shit.

    After Sixfields I'm wary of saying no chance. I think the Butts or Nuneaton could be brought up to the required spec very quickly if needed with temporary facilities.

    Think it will be another short term deal at the Ricoh but if Wasps play hardball there's every chance our owners will just walk away from talks.

    That's Sisu economics for you. But it'll feel like home,the atmosphere will be better, I can drink myself to oblivion in the loads of pubs nearby, we can sell 10 more pies a game my God the champions league waits with baited breath. Barcelona have changed their minds about increasing the capacity of the Nou Camp to 5000 now following this great new business model

    With 7000 in it yes like any stadium would be at only a quarter full and who's fault is that?

    ha ah 15000, when was the last time we got an average attendance of 15000? Certainly not in league one

    Wish this would come to a head, but I believe nothing will be resolved while court cases rumble on and on and on...

    and that is my point - a small stadium at full capacity will have a better atmosphere then a 32,000 seater less then 1/4 full

    A responsible business would try to maximise a 32000 seater stadium. I as a supporter would be appalled if my team were playing in front of 5,6,7,8000 people but I guess that's just me.

    But you've already witnessed those figures. (Excluding the first one with the 3 and the 2 and lots of 0's.)

    Who said average? And besides, we were a losing team constantly in League One. We get promoted there would clearly be an increase in gates.
