It's a win-win situation for all the Gary 'White Dhinsa' Hoffman fans - as he wil finally be able to invest his £1 in a club that matches his ambition AND investment

I'd change the name of the club to Coventry Cobblers in honour of our new home ground and so we can sing "what a load of cobblers" for 90 minutes every week.
Have fun

silly really as it would be a lot closer for most of their fans ;-) Anyway I always have and always will support all teams that play in Coventry same as I follow Tenerife as I now live here. If Tenerife moved to Madrid I would not. What would be the point as I may as well follow Madrid.

On another point I had a reply from the footbal leauge today. Utter bollox, as I expected.

Agreed - smart bit of PA that one.


Make an offer that the majority of fans want that is unlikely to be accepted. Then when its turned down you can ramp up the pressure on the current board. Have to applaud him for that one. Would have been interesting what would have happened if the board had accepted the offer. Not that it was ever likely to happen.

Definitely an interesting move. As you say he knew it would get rejected, he could release that to the media and say "look, even with a rent free stadium, no extra costs from broken agreements and access to higher ticket revenues they still take the club away"

my reply from the FL;


Thank you for your email. We have received numerous emails and telephone calls from Coventry City fans concerned at the on-going situation at the club. We can assure you that your email has been read but given the volume of emails, we cannot always provide an individual response.



As background, it is worth clarifying the administration process and explaining the role of The Football League. The administrator is an officer of the High Court and owes duties to both the Court and creditors. It is the administrator that controls whatever assets an insolvent company holds and he has to determine the sale process in accordance with principles of Insolvency Law. The League plays no part in this and ultimately has to try and work with the administrator’s nominated purchaser. The Football League’s role is to administer and regulate the competition that it’s members play in and only has the power to do so within its regulations. These are available to view on our website here: http://www.football-league.co.uk/page/R ... 94,00.html.



The administrator sold the assets under his control to Otium Entertainment Group and The League currently remains in discussions with Otium and the administrator to determine whether the Club can exit from administration in accordance with our Insolvency Policy.



Each Football Club is a business in its own right and The Football League has no direct influence with regards to negotiations over lease agreements, stadium ownership etc. We regulate the competition that our clubs play in and ultimately aim to ensure that they all retain their membership of The League within the competition structure.



The club’s owners have for some time been in dispute with the owners of the Ricoh Arena – Arena Coventry Limited (ACL) with regards to the playing of matches at the Ricoh Arena. It is The League Board’s view that it is a matter of regret that to date it has not proved possible for both parties to reconcile their differences. Otium made a request to the Board of Directors of The Football League to play it’s home matches at Northampton Town’s Sixfields Stadium.



In considering this request The League has stated that it believes that clubs should play in towns and cities from which they take their name. Nonetheless, from time to time, the Board is asked to consider temporary relocations as a means of securing a club’s on-going participation in our competition. With no prospect of an agreement being reached between Otium and ACL, the Board was placed in an invidious position - with the very real possibility of Coventry City being unable to fulfil its fixtures for next season. This would inevitably call into question the club’s continued membership of The Football League.



With the new season less than four weeks away, the Board required certainty as to where the Club would play its matches from the start of the new campaign. Reluctantly, the Board of Directors of The Football League has approved the application to relocate on a temporary basis only. The League has set out certain requirements of this consent in order to ensure the best outcome possible for the football club. Otium must provide a Performance Bond of £1m with The Football League as an assurance of the club’s commitment to return to the Coventry area. In addition, the Board's approval remains entirely conditional on the Club ultimately exiting administration in accordance with The Football League’s conditions and achieving a successful transfer of its League share.



The League continues to urge both Otium and ACL to continue to explore every possible opportunity to resolve this dispute, for the good of the City of Coventry, its football club and people living in the local community.



Thank you for contacting The Football League.



Kind Regards



Amanda

Me and Haggis must be thick, we were talking about Hoff's offer this morning and couldn't work out what was in it for the club? Don't have to pay the 400k per year ricoh rent but then lose the half the ticket sales but still don't get any beer/pie money. Surely even the biggest mong could see that a) the bottom line for the club/sisu is probably worse than projections at sixfields b) the Hoff's investors more than double their investment based on his forecasted sales, so he's basically screwing us out of money c) SISU have no wish to stay at the ricoh so why is this load of shit deal going to persuade them?
