    I agree the social media posts don’t really mean anything was just pointing it out. I doubt any of the players would sign under a Ricoh condition as bright has said himself that the players hate the pitch anyway.

    True, I'm impartial whether it's a legitimate rumour or not, just speculating. Didn't know Bright had come out and said he hated it! Although it doesn't take a footballer to notice the Ricoh pitch is about as flat as Katie Price's chest so that's hardly surprising.

    It was in a CWR interview after the Bradford game. Basically said all the players hate the pitch and moan about it all the time.

    Yeah, said something about not being able to play how they want to.

    How would the frothers feel about us offering some cash/extra rent to get the pitch up to scratch?

    Maybe that’s the goalposts that moved?

    I agree. Perhaps we can get The Wasps games moved to The Higgs Centre, or even Woodlands?

    TBH, it would be a sensible investment, I'd be offering extra cash to invest in the pitch in lieu of a rent reduction.

    To go back to the silly analogy about not suing your landlord, you don't usually maintain and invest in their property for them either.

    Fine if we have to pay for it once but then if it fucks up again they have to bring it back to standard.

    If it doesn't effect MR's budget too much, if at all, I'd be more than happy with a new hybrid pitch ( better than what we have)!

    Rochdale spent £500K relaying a new pitch in 2018 just before the Spurs game. That's a huge investment to make by a League One club. If we were to front the cash or even offer to pay half of that, it will have a significant effect on budgets across the board - undoubtably this will include the playing budget.

    It already was a Hybrid pitch. Andy Turner got an exclusive interview about how great it was and that it would do both football and rugby.

    I know Nick, that's why I wrote "(better than what we have)"

    I really can't see a purely grass pitch being able to sustain rugger and footy, unfortunately. Hope I'm wrong if they proceed with grass.

    Guess it depends if it's looked after or not.

    I think ours was a cheaper version of the hybrid pitch, as the next level up is the one that Bristol City have at their ground which is incredible. Basically Wasps went for the cheaper option

    Yeah, the owner bought Bristol rugby moved them to Ashton Gate and runs them together as ‘Bristol Sport’. The pitch is always immaculate.

    Was it not looked after the season just gone?
    Also, I really don't think purely grass is the way to go with a rugger team playing and cutting it up the day before we're due to play.

    Only if it was deducted off the rent. We’re already paying rent, it’s not expecting much to have a half decent pitch. Other teams who groundshare don’t have these issues, at least not to the extent we do.

    It’s supposed to be state of the art anyway. Remember when we were all supposed to be thankful to Wasps for sorting it.

    And what happens when we pay to sort the pitch and Wasps hire it out for a monster truck show and destroy it?

    State of the arse more like.....

    I would like to think there's some kinda comeback on the company that laid the Hybrid pitch in the first place eg. Promises of quality, not up to standard, not fit for purpose!

    Getting some compensation would appease the Cuckoo Insects and help reduce the cost of rent and pitch renovation, perhaps?

    I’m firmly of the opinion that these pitches are supposed to be maintained using certain ‘specialist’ programmes (and hence the pitch is sold with what is essentially a service plan), whereas I believe Wasps are trying to do it off their own back to save costs and don’t understand what needs doing.

    Edit: this opinion is based on absolutely no evidence.

    I'm sure I read somewhere that Wasps were blaming the state of the pitch on some junior groundsman feeding it wrongly.

    I’d be making any rental payment contingent on the pitch being at a certain level but I guess that’s hard to define (as opposed to “you must do x y and z each week to maintain it”).

    Need to get it right, it’s be worth as many points as a good signing if fixed.

    No but a reasonable assumption based on the interview with the company that laid it
