    As far as I know the following have been contacted by legal people working for Sisu.

    Coventry City Council
    The Higgs (Charity)
    The Trust
    Mary Mungo Midge
    PWKH
    Football League
    The Guardian

    Not sure about:
    ACL
    The Higgs Centre
    Trinity Mirror/Coventry Telegraph
    CWR presenters
    Gary Hoffman
    Bob Ainsworth MP

    Have I missed anyone else??

    I was just wondering that, but I guess he doesn't pull any punches when it comes to these scumbags !

    All national and regional newspapers who do not reflect sisu as saints.

    Wasn't MMM "accused" of being an "ACL plant" - I looks very odd reading that back by the way

    Easy mistake to make when the real PWKH hides behind such a cunning name :)

    Strange, they could have just asked me and I could have told / shown them that RFC is clearly PWKH.

    Surely they must have taken action against the Guardian after what they said to the Trust about Conns article? Or are they just bullies who only take on people they think won't be able to defend themselves?

    I would suspect that the reason that he doesn't post anything at the moment is because of the legal cases. Quite a good way of shutting people up it would seem - maybe that's why we are hearing from the non executive Mark Labovitch and not Tim.

    That's a real shame because Tim has far funnier jokes and better comic timing.

    When I win the Euro big one tonight I will pay for someone like Andrew Caldecott QC to take sisu on, then we will see who gets battered in court, thinking though there are a number of well heeled fans who could club together and get a top QC to have a go on AHT's behalf sort of a no win we will pay basis.

    I imagine even if the AHT were to win the case, the cretins would appeal and re appeal in any vain attempt to get out of paying their dues. Oh and these extortionate legal fees that will have been incurred, are they to be loaded against the clubs mounting debts?.............

    There were strong rumours (when the Trust were sent a letter) that Trinity Mirror/Coventry Telegraph had been sent a letter in the past, but I doubt you'll get anyone from Trinity Mirror to confirm it.

    I'll have to nip out at lunch and buy a ticket if it's a big jackpot. I'll do the same if I win the top prize - can you have more than one QC working on a case?

    Yeah I heard that rumour too. Not so much lawyers but certainly threats of being cut off from the club.

    I'm sure there was another poster who said he'd been contacted, but I may have been thinking of MMM.

    I want a lawsuit :(

    i seem to remember that when Les Reid covered the Trust/Guardian story he put a link up to the Gaurdian site and then later that day it was no longer there (someone started a thread on here about it at the time) and not long after Les seems to have gone on an extended holiday.

    make of that what you will

    If memory serves me right I am sure it was around the time the Chinese deal blew off, could be wrong though.

    Didn't SISU or their lawyers contact PWKH directly accusing him of being someone else on here. Think he posted about it on here if someone wants to trawl through and look for it.
