    Who is saying it is still in place?

    Most would assume it's on the basis of a deal being done. It is mentioned when it's said a deal couldn't be done because of the legals.

    I think some people read too much into the reasons for our big support at the MK games. In my opinion it had more to do with joining a bandwagon of support and enjoying a good day out, than any protest against our owners, and if the same happens this season it won't be any different. I also doubt it will have occurred to many that there maybe a hypocritical element to attending the game, or even if it did, that they would care anyway. Also remember that we have won every game we have played at MK when we have taken a big support, so why would we not want to do that again?

    Do you mean, if the EU complaint is found in favour of SISU's complaint, they can get a share of (or buy into) the Ricoh?

    EDIT : Just re-read, I misunderstood. :woot:

    "If you want to watch City at St Andrews, just buy a ticket in the away end when they become available."

    Saw that the other day, tells you everything you need to about the mental capacity on there.

    I don't think anyone thinks otherwise do they? Certainly wouldn't expect SISU to sign up to something and then have Wasps walk away, they aren't that naive.

    Monumental bit of spin from the Telegraph to get this as their front page with what has gone on the last couple of days. Listened to the news on CWR and the start of Sport at 6 and not a mention.


    Assume where they've put trusted news is supposed to be ironic.

    No, and the mood music to me feels rather like they wouldn't want it in place for what's coming next

    I still think there is more to the timing of Oversons comments than meets the eye though I'm totally bemused as to what.

    Yes it's desgusting, two hedge funds and a local council ripping the heart out of the football club.

    Not sure how old you are, but that happened years before SISU and WASPs

    If it wasn’t for SISU not doing their due diligence (being duped by Ranson) and stopping us going in to administration...it could’ve been worse m8

    In Hindsight, if we knew then what we know now, we should have gone into administration.

    It wouldn't have bin any worse, a clean sheet and start again.

    Too many egos just wouldn't let it happen .

    I don't get how the value being raised means SISU get the Ricoh on the cheap. Would they not have to pay the new, higher value?


    Only thing that got my goat was wearing that dress and saying she's a Sky Blues fan. It's business and money, I get that and if you have to act in your investers best interests thats fine, but please don't try to kid us it's anything other than that.

    Her "first ever TV interview"?? Thats a big wow, my initial thoughts were deperation, we must be more important to the SISU empire than we thought. However, there have been lots of speculation and SISU bashing from our highy regarded local media so she's got to try and put the record straight. Radio silence is not working with the larger population.

    Looking at the continuous fluffs and contradictions coming out from Council HQ, it's been the right decision - she knows they have been sneeky themselves and it's the right time to try and take advantage of that. Am glad she went to Sky as this is a major national broadcaster which won't spin the story either way, although someone with more knowledge in the background to the saga could have delved deeper.

    She put across fair points and it was good to finally get the top dog to break silence after so many "Joy this" and "Joy that". She and her minions have a lot to answer for but for those that just blame SISU for all our woes, I hope she has opened a few blinkered eyes.

    Poor Katy, probably wasn't working there when the CT editor was "briefed". I hope she doesn't end up on the carpet tomorrow, could we have a local journo who actually paints both sides of the fence?

    We’d more than likely still be paying 1.3 million and being milked by the council. But hey at least ACL would be ok

    In a way I think everything is finally coming to a head here. Everyone is now coming out with what has really gone on behind the scenes, who’s been involved etc. So many characters in this tragedy now choose to speak.

    I honestly can’t tell what that means for us now. Everyone has drawn their lines in the sand. Wasps have their stance and won’t back down and Sisu obviously won’t either (we shouldn’t underwrite any losses).

    Either wasps will give way first or this could be a long haul trip away from Coventry for the club.

    Although I have a feeling that once the Eu decision is made sisu will now sell up. I feel there’s some damage control being done by the sole director of Sisu. She’s basically saying the club is available but for a price (in her head) as we’re on the up.

    The short snippet of interview about wasps felt like a sales pitch to me. She said something about £7m and the two parties moving away from agreement point (or along those lines). Nice platform on TV without saying explicitly it's up for sale.
    Overson is obviously still in the background - can he generate a new consortium?
    Just can't see how this ends up with us back (and owning) the Ricoh other than waiting they next couple of years out to how wasps shape up.

    Apply a little thought - you strike me as being at least average intelligence. I'm sure you'll get it in the end

    I think they might just be a possibility that they are more concerned that CCC might get found out if they have done something untoward. Hence their annoyance with SISU for filing the complaint...coz it may cause themselves having to pay money back into the public coffers or something?
