    All this St Andrew's stuff does raise some questions surrounding other issues that remain at the Ricoh.
    They'd better leave our Jimmy where he is .

    If our bricks were real we could build a new stadium with them

    Best place for it is in the city centre as a permanent reminder, seen by everyone.

    Loads of places it can go.

    I hope that happens Otis. I do hope that as the season progresses Wasps don't suddenly decide to remove it. That would be very insensitive . It would also send a message to the supporters that we're not coming back.

    Could put the statue on the roundabout on the a444 nearest Highfield road. The road is named after him after all!

    Surely better to let all the people of Coventry see it. Not everyone heads down that way, but just about everyone goes to town at one point or another, even if hardly at all.

    Best bet is probably the cathedral - nothing to do with religion more as its a symbol of Coventry. Although there was a multi denominational service when the grass was moved form HR to the memorial garden so you have to be careful not to exclude people.

    Like they can afford new seats! Could maybe move them around, not sure how much work that is.

    Absolutely. I hate the thought of the great man and his association with that current horror show of a location.

    I think it’s worse that some of his ashes are left in the memorial garden !!! It stinks as that was done because of the football club and the history of everything he did for the city of Coventry, yet a London rugby club keep guard of it.....

    Put him on the steps of the council house and let the cunts cringe every time they go past him and remind them of their total contempt for the people of this great city.

    Put it on the centre circle at the Ricoh so those egg thumping Neanderthals can get a good reminder of why the fucking Ricoh was built

    Hang on, they've gone back to saying stop legal action now. There is no legal action so we're all good - when is the return being announced!?!
