Clive can’t contain his excitement of a full house
What? They playing Bingo on CWR now?
What's being said?
Only heard the first bit. Wanted people to phone up who haven’t been but are going to cup
Interview with Boddy as well, but mainly about the Birmingham game. Clive asked him briefly about any update on the Ricoh and what was said in the programme last week, but he said there wasn't anything to say at this point and they've been focusing on getting the cup game sorted.
Probably enough for people to get mad about...
Well he's a "useless gimp" according to Tim Kalns.
Ha! And there we go...
Graham Hawley on tonight about an idea for Blues?
Getting the Peaky Blinders down?
Play count the peaky blinders cosplayers in the Blues end next week.
Good caller on now
Said about the elephant in the room being Cov being in Birmingham, but why weren't the local media asking and continuing to ask Wasps the right questions about the indemnity and are hiding behind the usual answers of NDA's, etc after your call the other week. Also mentioned why Eastwood wasn't followed up about his comments in that 5 year anniversary interview.
Stuart said they are asking the questions but that Eastwood might not be the one at Wasps to answer them..
What did stuart say to that?
Pretty much what he's said in previous weeks. CWR are asking the questions, but the answers are that nothing has changed (changed from what?) and the NDA's in place from both parties. Still doesn't seem to be sure about if the indemnity is still there or if something has changed since the summer
It was me asking that question, taking Pete's lead from the last couple of weeks. We need to keep asking it - it is the fundamental question. We need to keep pressuring the local media into doing their job properly.
Would I be right to say this fuck wit didn't go to games when we were at the Ricoh anyway?
It sounded to me like Stuart was basically saying, between the lines, the indemnity might not be an issue anymore and something has been agreed for next season. Perhaps it was lip service to avoid the indemnity coming up every week or maybe something is afoot.?!?
Don't mind me I'm just shitposting Pete's statement on every thread again to make sure nobody misses it.
Sky Blues Talk forum statement
FUCK THE WASPS
You might be right, but I don't like these whispers and hints; if they know something, or have heard something, it is their duty as impartial local journalists (especially the BBC) to follow it up doggedly and report on it (i.e. not just accept the "NDA" excuse). Obviously I have no expectations that the Telegraph will do anything; that rag lost any pretensions of serious journalism long ago.
I think somebody from this forum should be on the CWR phone-in every week asking the questions and pursuing it. Don't let it be brushed under the carpet. Who is going to be next?
I think that sometimes he tries to leave things hanging in the air, almost saying ‘well, I know a bit more about this but I can’t really say’ when the reality is that he doesn’t really like the topic. He also changed the subject pretty quickly.
The truth is that no one seems to pin Wasps down. That fifth anniversary interview was the ideal opportunity to ask the right follow up question (as SBucks mentioned), but the useless interviewer didn’t do it. I think this topic needs to be raised on the phone in as often as possible.
Sorry, just read this.Sorry for repeating things you just said. (But great minds think alike!).
No problem at all . We're clearly not the only ones thinking that way, it just needs others to call in to keep hammering the point.
I thought you were really level headed and polite. It's great to see people like you and Pete from this forum put across sensible points in a very articulate manor. Some of the clueless frothers who go overboard when they call in, usually after a defeat, really do make football fans look like dribbling loonies.
Agree totally. May be just him trying to be the big I am, but Stewart comes across as he's in the know. He's broadcasting that via a public funded body and unless CWR have signed an embargo they should be passing on details that are in the public interest.
Thank you, appreciated. Stuart had asked me to come on the phone-in earlier in the week after we had had a fairly inconsequential Twitter exchange (which had started with me having a bit of a dig at CWR..)
I've been round Pete's house many times. It's a nice place but it's not THAT big.
Nicest thing you’ve ever said
Radio not working AGAIN!!! Fucking joke.... tried to put wasps on too instead haha the jokers
Clive almost sounds gutted cov rugby won and wasps lost.
What did he say?
Separate names with a comma.
