    Whilst accepting SISU are largely responsible for the situation we find ourselves in, Coventry City Council are not without blame. The Council could, and should, have done more. Maybe it is now time to double our efforts and put pressure on the Council as well ? PUSB NOPM ! Sisu Out

    Certainly writing to our councillors is a necessary holding to account vor

    Would like a clear message from the Trust that ACL should state their best offer publically so we can cut through the crap.

    Not sure what people want the Council to do, unless they want them to sell the Ricoh?

    But the ball is not in their court now is it? All this only came about with a long drawn out refusal to pay the agreed rental contract in full, that was SISU's biggest mistake and revealed their allegeded intentions of distressing ACL. If they had kicked up but still paid the rent at the same time then the bitterness and resentment may have been kept out of negotiations.

    No VoR you are wrong and they'll be many posts telling you so.

    ACL/Ccc are cool.

    I always pay the council tax online, but invariably forget to do it until a day or three after the due date. Sticking the needle to them bit by bit, y'all.

    It's because they can't see recognise the owners of the club who have been hitting the ball from the otherside of the court allegedly, yet when they're happy to recognise SISU for there own benefits they mysteriously manage it..

    Hey guys !!!!
    I have an idea !!!!
    Get the council to sell the Ricoh to Sisu !!!
    " Joy how much are you prepared to pay for the Ricoh?"
    Answer from Joy " Nothing ! "
    That's the end of that then close thread !!!!!!!

    Your screenplays are enthusiastic John, but lack suspense.

    Council have screwed up on many fronts, but ask yourselves what you want the council to do?

    If its sell to SISU, they probably would, but not at a price that SISU would accept.

    What would the quarter of a million ratepayers in Coventry who don't give a shit about football think if they virtually gave the place away, so SISU could have their pound of flesh? How many complain about how far their rates go these days, with cuts to services .... and then the council virtually give away a prized assett.

    they wrote off 600k when they didnt sign CVA so i dont think they care about that

    i want them to sell ricoh to ccfc, they can keep council and other sutff but give stadium to city

    for reasonable price,not expensive

    go public about it too, so people cant make assumptions that sisu refuse to pay it etc.

    why on earth dont SISU just come out and say what they will pay per year to temp stay in Cov until their arena is built ?

    Why do they need long term assurances to temp rent the Ricoh, yet happy to temp rent Sixfields without long term assurances ?

    Well the pro-SISU brigade keep talking about the council's "cash cow" so I assume they must be raking it in.

    I agree there mate: it should be out in the open; it should be reasonable; it should belong to ccfc.

    Not sure about the 600k though, would the flip side of the coin be signing the CVA and kiss goodbye to the £1.?? million owed in rent and god knows how much in future revenue?

    Nice theory. But actually it's just that I find the way you post very annoying. Simple as that really.
