    With the same financial restrictions we already have. We'd be a nice little club that wasps could keep in their pockets though.
    I really hope it doesn't come to that.

    Isn't that what WASPs have done?

    This is the best possible outcome at present.

    I think you are confusing reasoned argument with a desperate need to try to prove me wrong? ;)

    The trust deciding??? I think they are entitled to a view, whether we think it's right or wrong is up to us.

    it's either needed or it isn't?? Are you sure about that? Things never change then? What if a new owner came in and did a deal for 1/2 the ricoh? would another new ground still be needed?
    I needed a BMW 330i convertible years ago, but then got a call to say my daughter was expecting. I then needed an X5.... Things change.. :emoji_smile:

    We've already agreed the trust didn't need to add that bit.

    Why are people referring to the trust as "they"? Surely they are representing the members? If it is just giving the views of 4 or 5 people and some in the background then why do they speak like they represent the fans?

    Of course things change, as it stands at the minute things like a new stadium shouldn't be ruled out as "not needed" ;)

    I guess they represent the views of the fans that go to the meetings?

    There is zero chance of a new stadium, so you might think it's needed, but, contrary to all the bluster from SISU, they clearly don't.

    Do they actually represent members? I'd disagree with that, which is why they should just keep things simple.

    I'm sure they would love a new stadium. ;)

    We could take the seats from the Ricoh and then London Wasps can put their own in.

    Cost saving already.

    It was built by the time they got here yes but they didn't set out with the express intent of getting somebody else to finance a stadium for them. Obviously I could be wrong about SISU too but I don't trust them to be genuine in their dealings and I doubt any of the other parties do either.

    I got multiple verbal assaults for asking if that claim rang true. I did not even state my opinion, though you might be able to figure it out.

    Don’t get this.

    A tactic is needed by Sisu for the overall aim of continuing the distressing of CCC/Wasps or getting the Ricoh on the cheap (delete as appropriate).

    What is dropping the legals a tactic for? Isn’t it just then end goal? Do you think talks wouldn’t happen if legals were dropped?

    I personally would love a new stadium if it came to fruition. It should be plan A ideally if funds existed for one. At minimum then carrying on at the Ricoh would be fine. Although I'm actually surprised the seats haven't been turned to yellow and black yet to be honest. Its a statement of their opinion which is ok. I doubt SISU will read it and think it reflects the general fan base opinion and scratch off the idea based on that so i dont think we need to worry.

    You can't see why they wouldn't give things up like that BEFORE any talks even start? Where the council and wasps could then do whatever?

    They have said they are willing to drop, of course it's not gospel but we won't find out

    But the initial finance to buy the stadium was in place - the Council rolled over the loan until WASPs raised their own
    This was a sweet deal that trebled the value ( allegedly ) to enable WASPS finance to find £36m of Bondholders. The monies raised provided funds to clear the initial debt, the Chairmans Loan account plus some change to pay the Bond interest back to the Holders with their own money.
