    I wonder if this was another case of SISU attempting to force someone's hand and it backfiring. It wouldn't surprise me if SISU said to Wasps give the club a fair, long term deal at the Ricoh or we'll continue with the legals and take the battle to the European Commission.

    You make that sound like it would be an unreasonable request.

    It explains why the usual council social media accounts had been fired up ;)

    Wonder if a statement will come out?

    Not unreasonable at all. But if SISU or the club didn't expect Wasps to demand a pound of flesh after years of involving them in litigation then the powers at be are either stupid or in complete denial.

    FFS. I'm sick of this shit now. Was hoping we could just move on and start thinking about football again but, nope, there's always got to be some fucking sideshow going on.

    From what I understand, it'll make no difference as this pre-dates us leaving the EU (even if we left tomorrow). I don't pretend to be any sort of legal expert though.

    The European Commission isn't a court, does Simon mean the European Court of Justice?

    What do they expect the Commision to do? I would have thought that the European Court would be the place to go. Maybe Martcov could say if I'm right or wrong - he seems to be an expert on the EU.

    Could it be a tactic to get Wasps to agree to SISU's terms on the Ricoh deal? Just clutching at straws here.

    All sounds like a ploy to stop the protests at the last game, and it worked! If this is to be believed, there should be a riot at the first ‘home’ game but most will sit back and accept the ground share because we were ‘forced’ out by the council and wasps. Look who the main perpetrator is again!

    I think Sisu have gone into talks with the angle of “give us this deal or else” wasps have probably not agreed and this is now to force their hand plenty of twists and turns yet I feel.

    And those kind of bullish negotiation tactics have placed us in the shit time after time.

    Polite reminder that ACL/CCC tried to buy the Cunts in 2011/2012 a whole year before Sixfields, thanks.
