AD : yes it's shit. Modern football is shit. it's ruined. broken. fucked. SISU /Otium are ****.
Trust me - I've no love for fucking hedge funds, they're amongst the fuckers that have dropped this
country & most of the world into an economic shit pit. I hate fucking Sky TV & Murdoch...Saudi oil Sheikhs &
all the rest of those **** that have ruined football.
But, right here, right now, for the fans of Coventry City football club it's a very simple, polarized choice : do you
want a club, or not ?

I seem to remember it was the same council that shafted the club with the Ricoh deal before SISU even arrived.
NOPM, KCIC et al have has zero impact so far and won't have any in the future - from a financial perspective at least.
They have alienated their fan base by moving to Northampton, that will be their main obstacle going forward - but the financial implications of the move will barely touch the surface.
As for your conspiracy theories over what they'll do if they get the stadium... They're exactly that. They'll know that if they could ever get the club back to the top flight, they will be able to get their investment back and then some.
And no matter how much of a **** you think Fisher is - he is still the only person involved in CCFC that has ever produced or demonstrated an intention to instigate a plan the means the football club will be self sufficient and can break even.
Well now we know the other option, administration, however unpalatable it seemed, would have been much better in the long term. You fall for it like a mug again if you want, but I for one will not be fooled again.

you're right - administration back then would have been better. Probably. Who knows ? Hindsight is a wonderful thing...
as for recent administration : better off are we ? solved it all has it, like all the mugs calling for it thought ? Has it fuck. all it's done has crippled last years tilt at the playoffs & will similarly knacker this year I'd imagine in the end. SISU are still here. Hmm...lets think now...maybe actually a winning team, getting promoted a couple of times in the next 2 or 3 years..would that help our plight ? No. course not. I'll stand on a fucking hill in Northampton with a placard scrawled in crayon instead. that'll work.
We are where are we are. Joy & Co are in control. deal with it.

You can continue to exclusively blame SISU as much as you like, and make excuses for the councils actions... but whoever the owner was we would have ultimately ended up here one way or another as long as the club stayed at the Ricoh under the original terms. It doesn't fucking matter how nice the facilities are, how much of an improvement on HR, or potential benefits etc -if your main client can't access it due to the financial constraints you have put in place you've got a big problem. ACL and CCC seem incapable of even acknowldging this. And if it was such a brilliant stadium, and a great package then why haven't they replaced the club already???
People are complaining about SISU wanting the Ricoh for peanuts.. but the only people devaluing the stadium are ACL and CCC. The longer the stadium stays empty the less it's worth. So if SISU do ever pick up the Ricoh on the cheap, it will be down to the naiveity of it's current owners.
SISU might be ****, but they know how to run a business.. can you say the same for ACL?
Burf wrote:ACL & CCC are now the major obstacles to this club moving forward. Fact. Our only hope is that Joy decides to stay the course, build the new ground & move the club forward. We're fucked otherwise. No one else is coming to the rescue. Deal with it.
