    How he even has the balls to post on here any more I don't know.

    I actually pity the creature to be honest. Such has been his indoctrination he actually believes the drivel he writes.

    It is all good saying to work with Wasps, with the intention of getting the Ricoh at the later date, but the longer they stay the more ingrained into the city they become. At the moment, they own a single asset in Coventry the stadium. If they are allowed to gain access to the Higgs, this will just make them even harder to get rid off.
    If Wasps are willing to work with us fine, but clearly they aren't, and at this moment it seems to me like there is only going to be one or the other in Coventry, in the near future

    Yeah fucking City of Rugby, not for me pal, the sport is only suitable for people of a certain build. Unlike Football, Cricket which can be participated in much more widely. By its nature Rugby is a very restrictive sport only playable by a small minority.

    Besides that it is my view that there should be no money budgeted by the council for professional sport, that applies equally to Rugby as well as to Football or Tennis etc. The budget should be to promote sport participation for the benefit for all Coventry residents and allocated in approximately in proportion to each sports popularity as a participation sport.

    Has anyone done a FOI about Rugby funding by the council.
    There was a FOI response I found about sports funding but it doesn't itemise each sport. I suspect the question, though asked, has been deliberately avoided.
    The link about pitch strategy they provide is broken it goes to 404 Page Not Found, how convenient!

    Do you not think we are dying now, if SISU leave we have a chance,
    If they stay we have none.

    The football club won't die just let it drip along with Wasps not negotiating a new deal to use the Ricoh until legals get dropped, that will be the straw that breaks the camels back I believe. The FL will threaten to withdraw the golden share that will leave sisu a problem, basically a worthless asset and maybe, hopefully, someone out there will move in with a take it or leave it offer , far fetched ? maybe but sisu are definitely squirming and tried using the Acadamy as. ruse for the bigger prize in my opinion.

    Blah blah blah. Waffle waffle waffle.

    Honestly can't be arsed any more outside of the football. Two sides up their own arse with conspiracy theories and utter bollocks. Club is going nowhere. Owners going nowhere. Anyone that wastes any more time on this has serious issues quite frankly.

    You should read the stuff you lot write some time, no one gives a fuck about us mate, there's no massive multi agency conspiracy to fuck us over, were just not that important and have burned more bridges than the Maddison County arsonist. The other side is just as bad "oh, it's evil Sisu plotting" plotting to do fucking what? Lose a shit ton of money in a pointless endeavour? And then worst of all is the "it's everyone's fault" because yeah, why not, fuck it if you can't figure it out blame everyone.

    None of you have changed position in years, the position of the club hasn't changed in years, we are in fucking stasis. And you, an apparently successful human being, spend a not insignificant chunk of your time on this planet arguing the same point over and over with more and more venom. Like some bitter old man in a nursing home.

    Fucking pathetic.

    Or accepting the status quo , trouble is with that ,the quality of football declines as people drop away and find better things to do on sat afternoon. Sisu will not bank roll any improvements . That's the top and bottom of it . The only chance of us getting the goal scorer we want is to buy him ourselves . Sorry lads I've got kids and grandkids to support so I'm out

    I'm sorry but I still think you're being lined up to be Franchise FC 2. Probably in Birmingham but maybe elsewhere.

    Also still think you should boycott the Franchise FC away game, not take 7, 500 with you

    It's shit,we all know it's shit and there is nothing we can do about it.mtalk of boycotting is probably from the NOPM lot who don't go anyway so that's an easy decision but others seem to accept it and crack on. Watching the class of 92 Salford documentary and it showed shots of Valencia after losing some games, fans were going crazy whereas we just don't have that fight (myself included). Not sure if it's been slowly kicked out of us through the years but it's sad to see. We all have a common goal which is for the betterment of CCFC whatever side of the fence you sit on.

    Personally I cannot see anything fundamental happening until the Ricoh lease is up, then parties will be forced to make moves (positively or negatively).

    Wasps have said they want us to stay so what evidence do you have to the contrary?
    Or is it just opinion quoted as fact again?

    Totally agree with Italia. I've not seen one piece of written or spoken word to say they don't want us at the Ricoh.
    Edit* no way shape or form am I a wasps lover.... Just doing a "Nick" for the sake of balance ;)

    I don't doubt they'd want SISU out, I certainly want them gone. As for a thriving CCFC, that is another matter.

    As with most things, it is not a simple black and white. To 100% blame the council is totally bonkers, as is to put ALL the blame on Sisu.

    People have clearly become too entrenched in their positions now and I really don't see the point in some on here trying to bang posters' heads into submission.

    Haven't people got anything better to do other argue all day and all night, day after day and week after week on the same point over and over again?

    As Hackers said the other day, he'd been away for a while and he came back and finds that no-one has changed their stance.

    It's all very futile.

    I would say we are now at a time where there needs to be unity amongst fans and a common purpose of saving Coventry City FC.

    Clearly we are not going to get it though.

    I really try and steer clear of these endless ramblings and frothing at the mouth posts and threads. They go on for an age and at the end everyone is still in the same position they were right at the very beginning.

    :)
