    It’s simple, by winning a court case and then leaving.

    Anything else and we are always in the same fight with the council we have been for years. Wasps having the ground has introduced another party we are fighting against.

    It’ll all be sorted at the Ricoh I’m convinced of it, wasps can’t turn the easy income imo.

    It depends on what outcome they want ? If they are worried about the legals, you could easily argue they can’t afford not to let us go as it may cost a lot less in missed rent than SISU winning a court case.

    Been thinking it’ll end up a ground share. Not ideal but better a short term ground share than liquidation. Hopefully somewhere closer to Coventry than Northampton.

    Lost £10m this past year plummeting attendances players want to leave could well be relegated next season I think a year ground share is fully on the cards.

    I suspect the owners are relying on many others saying / doing the same thing. The feeling around here and elsewhere seems to be tha this time it’s someone else’s fault, but last time it was the owners fault ?

    Wonder how much the lease will be available for in a year’s time? Obviously with the condition that the secured lending is paid off.

    Yes
    But also a legitimate plan B at this point.

    Ground share again looks like a possibility but this time it’s different to the Northampton time. Then I was always confident we would be back there was at the time an empty stadium to come home to, this time however there is nowhere to come back to so either sisu do find land and build a new stadium or we stay out of Cov for a long time.

    And if they go back down the groundshare route again suggests to me whatever the result at this forthcoming appeal Sepalla intends to carry on the legals either through Europe or the civil courts.

    We thought we were going back to an empty stadium. How wrong we were.

    I know but it seemed to get us scurrying back a bit with our tails between our legs and was somewhere to go, this time can’t see how we’d get back unless we build our own and if it all started tomorrow I’d say it would be a minimum 3,year project.

    I think the difference is that this time the club has tried to distance itself from the owners, and has openly said they want to stay at the Ricoh. If we don't, then it looks as if we're being thrown out of the city. This wasn't the case last time. But that argument becomes obviously complicated by the 'SISU are the football club and can stop legal proceedings to solve the problem' viewpoint.

    I think your right , that that is SISU plan, however last time we told the efl that it was Tempary till the ground was built , this time are they saying its Tempary depending on winning a court case that they have already lost so many times , would the other teams agree to allowing sisu to dictate to them ,where they want to play , and for how long , just my thoughts , don't think its as clear cut as just moving again

    I think that is sisu’s big problem last time there were promises and assurances to the EFL from Tim Fisher about building a new ground, we know how that panned out, we don’t know to this day where the land was. Fisher is still here don’t think that helps dispite him saying this time he’s not with sisu.

    Yes and no.

    I think the feeling is that its more complicated this time and it's not solely down to the owners, and that the club is being used as a pawn by all involved. The club have said they wanted to stay, it's not the clubs decision to move out.

    You can argue whether sisu should drop the legal, however there is nothing stopping wasps from doing business or even having talks. Plenty of businesses have legal disputes but carry on working together. O2 are taking Ericsson to court over the network drop out a few months a go. They will continue to work together.

    The other thing, it that the assurances that the council gave when they sold the ricoh, yet now they are saying that it was only for the initial 4 years.

    You can also add in the whole "washing its face", "build bridges then we can discuss possible sale".....whilst already agreeing the deal with wasps.

    If wasps and the council were playing with a straight bat, many would be feeling the same as before and sisu would be getting 99%+ blame like last time.

    Apparently Rugby Town's f.c. Butlin Road , holds nearly 6k, half of those spaces are under cover with 740 under cover seating.

    That's better than Nuneaton f.c.

    Mr Boddy has said he is in talks and has two options.

    Frothing, or just really fucked off ?! You really make life easy for SISU . Who the fuck wants to go through that farce again and how do you know just how temporary it all would be ?! SISU will take this club down to extinction at this rate and you will be partly culpable if you don't fight the wankers !

    Absolute bullshit. None of this is down to me, you or any other fan. Lets not go down the scab route again. This is down to sisu, council, wasps and Higgs, plus Richardson et al.

    And no ones wants to go through that again, but no one wants the club to be expelled from the league and put out of existence!!

    The ground share will be until wasps go bust can anyone really see wasps here 5-10 years time ? I think if we move now it won’t be a quick return...

    I think Sisu have known it will be a ground share for a while they know wasps won’t back down they will sit this out away from the Ricoh problem is how long will it take for wasps to break and where will the groundshare be...

    And ccfc won’t go bust ? Wherever we go our current regular 10/11000 gate will reduce by about 75%. I’d give us two seasons max.

    Well... can reduce costs too. Sell Bayliss, not offer new contracts to anybody, bring through da yoof...

    Depends what the strategy is though. Moving away last time was a loss leader. Is it this time?

    exactly. If anything this move could be more important than the last one, as we may not have anything to come back to (if the same parties are still here).
