Below email sent to Joy Seppala, Dave Boddy, Nick Eastwood, Stephen Vaughan, Derek Richardson earlier today........

Dear all

In February this year we decided that, in the absence of adequate fan representation, we could no longer wait for wait for events to play out so we looked to speak to all involved parties, along with other local and regional individuals with influence, to get all parties to a position where an agreement could be made for Coventry City Football Club to play in the city that bears its name.

Today we are in the position where both parties have put out contradictory statements about why an agreement hasn’t been possible, and this makes it really difficult for supporters to know exactly what has happened and why an agreement hasn’t been possible for next season. So, in the spirit of transparency, we are asking both parties if they are prepared to waive the non-disclosure agreements so that supporters, local businesses and citizens of Coventry alike can be presented with raw facts to enable all to clearly see why these decisions have been taken.

Thank you

Pete & Mark

I'm sure I speak for every sensible person on here when I say thank you Pete and mark. We all owe you both a beer for all your hard work
Wait until the CCC hitmen find them.

Good job PWKH isn't involved now, they would have his bellend grandson or nephew threatening that they wouldn't like his family of lawyers when they get angry, like I did.

Hi if you are reading.

Not the biggest fan of sisu, but I trust dave b and believe he is telling the truth, as for joy she is starting to actually acknowledge fans and if they continue they may even win most of the city fans over.

Will be very interesting to see the reply from the other side. No response or insisting on maintaining the NDA would not be a good look.

I don't trust any of them. But I'm sure as hell not up for another year or more of he said she said.

Let's have some fucking openness and honesty here from all sides. Enough vague statements and PR air wars. I want everything out on the table as a CCFC fan and a citizen of Coventry (for now).

The only vague statement out of the 3 released this week has been the Wasps one.

The club will just break the NDA and deal witb the consequences i reckon. Its at that point now
They can't just break the NDA. They have other business interests apart from us, breaking it would not look good for them whatever the reason. Plus breaking the NDA would mean wasps could sue them for damages.

Interesting...

Disclosures can also be made to the press if a tribunal finds that the information indicates an exceptionally serious failing that the person making the disclosure reasonably believes to be sufficiently in the public interest, Mr Jackson added.

“In these circumstances, the person making a disclosure must reasonably believe that the information is ‘substantially true’ and not make the disclosure for personal gain,” he said. “There is another hurdle that it must be reasonable to make the disclosure to the press rather than anyone else.”
