    Agree and I voted A for the same reasons.

    Yup.

    Totally agree.

    One more season at Northampton and that would have been me done with the club and I know so many who felt exactly the same way. So many were close to quitting the club completely.

    I have quite a few City supporting neighbours in my street and all of them have said they won't go if we move any sort of distance.

    All 3 options are terrible. Truly awful and the notion that we can just come back after 3 years is utterly ridiculous. If the legal challenge is still ongoing (entirely possible), Wasps still won't deal with us and the 3 years would have to be extended anyway.

    Don’t worry m8. If voting was actually effective, I wouldn’t be watching a mentalist run the country where I live and you wouldn’t be going through Brainexit

    Looks as if people aren't understanding it.. Would have been easier to just do it as :

    Option C : No groundshare allowed as a last resort, expel from football league.

    Thankfully I don't think the EFL will be making decisions based on it.

    Nothing. That's why I can't see the EFL deciding to kick a club out of the league based on it.

    Agree Tony, its barmy. 50 miles is unrealistic and I am sure some whizz will pull a 50 mile radius of the city in graphical format to show us what grounds tick that box. My head says B but I feel like we were at B when we were in Northampton, years went past and still nothing was done to find a permanent home so this just feels like we will sit outside of Coventry for 3 years then we wont have a plan at that stage and be in exactly the same position again.

    Should have been an option D.

    Kick out Sunderland instead of Coventry City?

    If people don’t want Sisu to drop the legals because that gives Wasps the upper hand

    And don’t want a groundshare because it’ll kill the club

    What the fuck do they want?

    The parallels between this and Brexit are uncanny.

    If you like it or not is irrelevant. Either we get a rental deal at the Ricoh which doesn't look likely, we temporarily move out of the city or we cease to exist.

    Fair enough if you wouldn't follow them out, entirely up to you, but to vote for C or to refuse to vote because it isn't the same to you is potentially denying the rest of us a chance to continue following the club and keeping it alive while we get rid of London Wasps sisu and any other parasite.

    Not sure if serious but obviously the thinking is it’ll force a deal in Coventry. Same as how May thinks remainers will blink in the face of no deal and vote for her stuff.

    It might be mental and risky, but it’s a strategy.

    I would personally like to see no-one vote for any of those options.

    They are all ludicrous to my mind.

    Can I go for, I want sisu to drop the legals but can understand why they aren't and don't want a ground share but will accept it as a last alternative.

    To summarise without the pearl clutching:

    Vote A if you think we need a new ground and a deadline wouldn’t be met and Wasps won’t blink on a Ricoh deal

    Vote B if you think it’ll all be sorted in 3 years and Wasps won’t blink

    Vote C if you think Wasps will blink and a ground share would kill the club

    so if EFL are prepared to consider 50 miles as a limit how does that square with it couldn't possibly be more than 6 ?

    Was the 6 mile thing on a ground share, or a new stadium?

    I just wonder what sort of crowds we would get 50 miles away. 1,000 maybe?

    The question is when do you decide there’s no other alternative. It’s a game of chicken and a groundshare is jumping out the way. Are we sure Wasps won’t blink? Then we’re at last resort. If not, we’re not.

    Who has actually said a groundshare needs to be within 6 miles?

    Well it started off at least as an absolute limit for ground share or stadium according to the club ............ was never enforceable though as far as i can see

    People would rather us get kicked out of the league than throw some sand to make Wasps blink. That is the worrying thing.

    It has been obvious from the start a groundshare would be a last resort.

    If we go groundshare we need actual action on a new stadium and not just hoping to wait it out until ACL goes bust like last time.

    No more can kicking.

    That's where option B comes in.

    A stadium built and moved in within 3 years isn't viable but it needs actual action and plans to get it in motion if that's the plan.

    I just can’t believe it. Sixfields wasnt 6 miles away. Where has this rule come from?

    I’ve heard it for a new ground, but not a groundshare.

    But we all know a new stadium won't happen.

    The only good I can see coming out of this is that it will devalue the club and then maybe the likes of Hoffman's bid will be accepted and Wasps will have us back.

    We go 50 miles away the club is going to be worthless.
