    I have lived in Coventry for a long time now and both my brother and father in law are season tickets holder and have followed CCFC to Northampton and Birmingham, I also take both my boys to Coventry games and while by allegiances will always be to Wasps I have more than a passing interest in CCFC and although i can't help pulling the tigers tail every now and again I would still like to see CCFC back in Coventry

    TBF to peaches and cream, I can't stand Wasps but he comes across reasonably well on here.

    When you're calling out someone's intelligence, it really is essential you don't make silly mistakes like that. First rule of internet shithousery.

    Have I missed something? Assume you're a lifelong Wasps fan who moved to Cov from London?

    You will find that he is clearly trying to push an agenda.

    It happens all of the time. Accounts pop up to try and push something.

    Not really pushing anything to be honest, I can totally understand the hatred and ill feeling towards Wasps and everything to do with them even if i think it more the councils doing than ours. any comments made I've tried to answer honestly but only from the stance of my opinion, I've never stated Wasps are blameless in the what has happened or that I agree with everything they have done, I am passionate about the club I support just as much as anybody else on here but I also have a vested interest in CCFC as members of my family are season ticket holders which means there are regular conversations about what is going on at the moment.

    I don't think that there should be a problem with fans of other clubs coming on here and adding to discussions providing they are not just here to abuse or wind up. This chap's posts, after the first few, have been polite and reasoned and give an insight from the other side. As far as I can see he is doing no harm and as mentioned, adding to the debate. At least he seems to have a genuine reason to support Wasps, unlike most locally based 'fans'.
    That said, I sincerely hope that in the very near future he and others Wasps fans can support their club somewhere in the southeast and not in the stadium conceived and built for our team.

    Lost your Academy Head Coach today I see.
    That surely won't help the development of young players (which you seem to be implying that you really need).

    Common theme through that rugby club and that’s to get out while you can as the ships heading for an ice burg. Any remaining talent will be off soon.

    A good coach offered a chance to work with England's up and coming players so can't blame him for taking the chance, as it stands at Wasps he had already moved to first team coaching to help the transition with academy players that had moved to the senior squad. what does make me smile is every time somebody leaves or there is a bit of bad news concerning Wasps it's flashed up on here as if these things only happen to us, these things happen at every professional sporting club when somebody excels at what they do they end up moving to bigger and better things, didn't Robins leave for Huddersfield at some point when he thought he was getting a better offer or Dublin to Villa? also i'm not implying that we really need to develop youth its a fact we need to develop youth.

    Can't remember the last time we had a player trigger a clause in the contract about facilities so they could leave?

    While players have left which for some reason you seem to think is a unique to Wasps we actually lost what would be considered 6 first team squad players while 11 signed new contracts so saying "Any remaining talent will be off soon" is stretching the facts somewhat.

    I have no reason to doubt you are correct in that fact, Daley wanted to leave before his contract was finished so that he could earn more money, have a chance of winning things and be closer to his family and i actually don't have an issue with that but is that any different to Dublin refusing to play at Luton I believe it was because he was forcing through a move to Villa may not have been about facilities but almost certainly to do with money and profile.

    Is it not a bit worrying that the player has that clause in the first place? It shows how much faith they had in it.

    Your new training ground facilities are getting even less believable than our new stadium.

    players from all sorts of sports and clubs have clauses inserted in their contracts, the facilities one is granted somewhat unusual but if that was important to him so be it i'm certainly not going to get bent out of shape about it. As for our new training facilities I actually agree with you like your new stadium i'll believe when i see it.

    The approach to wasps was before any breaking of a lease. You really are moronic.

    It was indeed. But what's awkwardly true is that breaking the lease was done to try and bust ACL and get the Ricoh on the cheap. It assumed that nobody else would swoop in-big mistake.

    Don't let the facts get in the way of anti council/wasps rant. As I've said before-always the victims.

    It's also true that ACL were looking at this pre rent strike. The council don't come out of this smelling of roses.

    Yes we know but that's before some crap hedgefund vacated the ground. A move that was oddly encouraged by some on here.

    Didn't ACL apply to put the club into adminstration, which was what broke the lease?

    It would have yes but it didn't in the end, those running ACL were the same morons on the council, the ones who built a £113m asset that has made no return in 14 years. That's all to do with SISU of course.

    We ran up a bill of unpaid rent. They called in the administrators but got caught out when SISU called in their own ahead of time using the ARVO debenture.
