Just the one will do
He was there a bit longer, 2017 as Commercial Director and then they split the rugby and non-rugby stuff and put in a Chief Exec for each in 2019. It was around the time Lawrence Dallaglio complained they were a business with a rugby bit attached. They've now gone back to one and put the remaining rugby guy Stuart Vaughan in charge of both. Stuart Cain had a long history in the industry, not surprising they haven't replaced the role post-Covid but they'll have less expertise running it. Stuart Vaughan is the same guy that didn't give a shit when the rugby activities were being played against the CCFC memorial walls.
'Every club makes a loss': Wasps chief on adapting to rugby's new normal | Paul Rees
"survival at this point is the ambition"
Genuinely starting to feel sorry for the.... am I fuck, I hope their slow death is as painful as it can be.
Read that yesterday,
What do we make of this quote...
"The business was growing and we were having a record year in terms of events and conferences while the priority on the field has changed since the club first moved to Coventry."
should have stayed isolated at home in Wycombe.
Don't worry guys according to wasps forum users. All the objections for the training ground come from SBT trolls who have never been to Henley in Arden.
The fact you can see people addresses on the objections shows most are from the local area. With the little support for it from people outside.
Also Sports England position is currently Holding objection due to a number of points. (obviously this will change depending on information given to them)
Yeah. Saw that.
I read it as that they think the whole scheme has been cooked up by "SBT trolls"
Richest club in the world if they move to Coventry though
They've claimed every year that its a record number of events and conferences yet the diary of events on their website is increasingly empty, as is the car park whenever you drive past. Also has never reflected in the accounts. Surely if we believe each year they are attracting a record amount of business yet still make huge losses they are just showing that the business isn't viable.
Saw this posted on Facebook
Not sure why Warwickshire County Council are involved, thought the application was to Stratford District Council.
"```We have very little revenue coming in and we are spending considerable time looking at parts of the business, including the playing side, and how we can be more efficient when we are able to open the doors again.````"
It does look like the 'Titanic' is sinking and it is everyone for themselves.
The plans for Lifeboat 'C' on the other side of the waters seems to be by invite only.
How much money "could" they generate from selling off part of the training ground land to housing developers when/if that purchase goes through?
Think that may be a plan for them. Think that the guy who submitted their application had something to do with a housing developer....
Vile club and fans, hope they disappear for good soon.
These cunts not dead yet? Promotion, villa relegated and wasps bust. Would that get any better!
It must be getting to the nitty-gritty of Richardson's desire to see this through. Anyone can see that it's unsustainable the way they've gone about it so far.
How deep are his pockets?
deeper than mine unfortunately
Wonder what this is about?
Illegal aspect of their planning?
I think they're on about the conflict of interest in that Eastwood was on the WCG board
Oh. Knew about Eastwood and the WCG board.
Thought it was deemed to not be COI.
Cheers though Fernando.
Wasn't "deemed" him saying "I didn't know, it wasn't me"?
Saw you on the college governors- it wasn't me!
Saw you meeting with the trust - it wasn't me.
Saw you saying drop the legals- it wasn't me....
Saw you meeting with the council- it wasn't me!!
Your language is an utter disgrace you should be ashamed of using the word W***S!
I apologise for any offence!
Have Wasps gone bust yet?
The bond price is holding up recently (although at a paltry 50p)....hoping to see more of a slide - here is hoping.
Holding up is a very glass half full way of looking at t considering if you bought them now at that price you'd be expecting to receive double your investment in two years as well as an interest payment in between. Nobody wants them because they're already worthless.
Talking about if they want us back or not
DrunkenWasps.com - Do we want Cov FC back at the wasps nest next season?
Some fun snippets
"I'd welcome them back once the legals are dropped."
(or if in the mean time the latter agrees to indemnify Wasps against any potential losses resulting from a possible EC investigation)

They’re a virus - now we’re about to increase our income significantly they want a cut... no doubt the trust will be calling them to do that
Cock Womble 222 and his bunch of idiots thinking they are in a position to dictate things, no rush on our side to get back let them keep drowning.
Also who are Coventry fc
I wonder how the new stadium naming rights are going.
Paying to get in an expert in selling the naming right seems to have done the trick
The Tudor Shoe Bar Arena has a ring to it if anybody can remember that old local shop
I loved the fact that he said he'd thought long and hard about the title, and then came up with 'Cov FC' FFS.
Cov FC have played just once at the Ricoh (hopefully never again). Just shows the knowledge levels of these clowns.
like a red rag to a bull.
Welcoming back the football team to our stadium, pie in the sky rent figures as if they are entitled to capitalize on football team doing well to push themselves backinto the black
