    I doubt it very much. Spoons locate in high footfall areas with a lot of constant passing trade, they cater for the daytime shopper crowd as much as any. I can't see any reason why they'd set up on an awkwardly accessed plot next to a busy roundabout, but, you never know..

    Yeah, pubs are closing, but those that are restaurants too are doing well, you know, your Sizzling Pubs, Harvester's, Hungry Horse's etc.

    If you had a pub and restaurant combined I think it would do okay, especially if it had a function room too for weddings, engagements and parties etc. You have to think outside the box now these days with pubs and don't just make them pubs only.

    There's no way that's true

    Not true. Site hasn’t been sold since 1995 as it’s not registered with Land Registry. There’s a long leasehold out on the social club owned by the social club. None of that land has been sold recently. (I work for a land information website so just checked it)

    don't think they'll want to take on tenants with a ad track record when it comes to paying rent. Aren't the FA monitoring this though? Hopefully they'll see this as the last straw for SISU and might actually do something if it starts to look any shittier

    As long as we are fulfilling fixtures, the FA couldn’t give a flying fuck what our owners do.

    I have four boys, all now grown up. The elders two are big sports fans and come with me to the football when ever they can. The younger two hated sport and hated football.They both now take part in sport ( runnning and badminton) but still have no interest in football and Coventry City despite me bringing them several times when young. As far as I can see I treated them all the same. No idea why two love it and two don't.

    Does it matter? They are who they are.

    Not at all. I love them all! Simple comment on how children brought up in the same way will develop in their own way.

    Grendel is correct. My company do lots of work for JDW and they have never had an interest in that site.
    Somebody is bullshitting about being offered a job.

    I've been to plenty of games where the atmosphere at the Ricoh was brilliant. Blackburn 1-0, Newcastle 2-3, Leeds 2-3, Chelsea 0-2, West Ham when the fans were cunts, 1-0 on our return to the ricoh.

    Difference being the turnout was huge and we were higher up the pyramid and/or further in the cups. As Otis has said, we've been on a decline for years.

    The club need to improve match day experiences though.
