    So you win £169,000,000 Smackeroonies tonight. Would you put any towards the club? Contribute to a new stadium? Make a donation but stipulate it is only to be used on transfers? How much would you give them? Would you buy the whole thing off SISU?

    Personally I would contribute to a new Stadium, probably to the tune of £10m

    Friday dreaming...

    I'd definitely offer to build the club a stadium F.O.C on the basis they agree to make it the club's home.

    With that sort of cash, surely you'd buy CCFC and Wasps...
    I would.
    Easy come, easy go...

    I'd build a stadium only if I could name it the FkoffbacktoLondonWaspsJoy&TimAreCuntsCouncilCanGoFuckThemselves Arena.

    I'd build the club a stadium just outside the city boundary so that the council couldn't get involved at all. I'd then sit and watch the rioch white elephant fall apart over time and send amusing emails to lucas and duggins.

    When I win it tonight, I'll do the following:

    * Buy Wasps.
    * Send Wasps back to London
    * Buy the club off Sisu
    * Build a new ground for CCFC just outside the boundary as per eastwoodsdustman above
    * Let the council work out what to do with the Ricoh (although I'd probably ensure the hotel is safe)
    * Set the club up under fan ownership with OSB as FD

    I'll respond to this thread next week from the Maldives to let you know how plans are progressing.

    Laters.

    I would buy Wasps then I would move them to Bury as they have a stadium going spare that they could share with a Football Club that gives a fuck - Steve Dale would sort them out!. I would then re-lay a new pitch at The Ricoh and gift it to CCFC to play in for free.
    Think I had better go out and buy a ticket!

    This is a question that I have often pondered.... I think i'd do the following:

    - Buy the Football Club (Golden Share) from SISU
    - I'd then give it to the fans to run and have full control over, my stake would be something like 20%
    - I'd buy the Ricoh Arena, negotiate with new sponsors so the the 'Ricoh' is no more (at least in name anyway)
    - I'd let Wasps stay but it would not be cheap! Otherwise they'd move on...
    - I'd build a new state of the art training complex for for all levels at the club

    I'd then get over the fact the council are useless and Wasps came to Coventry and enjoy watching the football club rise up the league and dream about Premier League!

    Don't let SISU know if you win the Euro-millions tonight, they will put another 100million on top of the 500million that they already value us at!! Good luck with the bidding

    Buy land, gift it to a supporters charity set up for the specific purpose of keeping CCFC in Coventry in their own ground.

    Offer Robins £20m transfer pot, no strings attached.

    Rest on hookers and blow.

    Buy wasps, liquidate them send an email to all Coventry based ticket holders labelling them cunts.

    Also buy Coventry rugby and pump millions in to make them better than wasps, and allow CCFC to rent the ground for £1 p/y on the proviso that they invest in the club

    EDIT:- If I was to buy the club, id ban the sky blues trust and the mad hatters, then build a new stadium and attempt to steal as much business from the RICOH as possible

    Need to get a few ribs removed too. Not that I'd ever try that of course.

    Train as a jet pilot, buy that old "City of Coventry" Vulcan bomber from Cov airport museum, renovate it, drop a shit load of Sky Blue Paint on the Ricoh.

    I would tempted to make it known that I would be building a new arena far superior to the Ricoh and give them the chance to sell me wasps which I would immediately shut down and have a big bonfire with all their junk with Grendel holding the matches

    OnceI had the Ricoh rename the stands after club legends and one of the toilets after Ann Lucas cost a pound a shit in that one.

    The club can have all the income from the ground but it would be owned by me and a select group of fellow supporters.

    Wouldn’t go anywhere near football club investment. Always seems to go tits up eventually.

    Oh any money is being thrown away. I’d never buy the club because you’d have to fund a loss making business with mental customer expectations.

    Even if you bid the whole lot to buy from Sisu they would still say it wasn't enough.

    No, no, you should go to that tax haven, the Cayman Islands and become the major shareholder in Sisu and then SACK Joy Seppala and Tim Fisher.

    Oh well you can only dream .
