I heard from someone (with connections to the club)that a a buyer maybe imminent and that they are also a current owner of a football club.
Obviously Worcester City!

Don't mock! .... all will prevail

Presume you mean ďbe revealedĒ. Any timeframe?

One of these days, somebody, somewhere will buy a soccer club and have the idea of also buying a Premiership rugby club at the same time to play on alternative weekends at the same venue. The jargon word for that used to be synergy.

The RFU etc could well be persuaded to accept this if Prem rugby was being taken into a geographical area where it is not already represented and where it could hope to attract new supporters to the game.

Whilst some on this board would condemn such a move (especially the Hon Member from Lea and Perrins) there are elements of business logic here and whilst Wasps' move to Coventry is not an exact precedent its success will not have escaped attention.

I am not for a moment suggesting that such is likely to happen to Worcester but Worcester is not the only rugby club up for sale if rumours about the likes of LI are true. But Prem rugby is getting more and more expensive for even the Sugar Daddies of this world and it would not surprise me if amalgamations were not to happen in the medium term.

Yeah he normally does. The NUFC investment has gone really well....not even with the current alleged purchase by Qatari investment.(Sm100).

Obviously, meant Ashley with irony.

Could argue that Bristol are already doing this.

This has already sort of happened with Bristol, who are owned by the same owners of Bristol City, although the geographical move was a small one from the mem to ashton gate.

Without sounding like I'm still drunk from last night I'd heard a local business consortium were interested, if one of those was also involved in a Football club perhaps they think football could also be played at Sixways?

Pure conjecture

Quite right. I had almost done the impossible and forgot about Bristol although I was really thinking about the possibility of a more radical geographical move away from one location into, say, a much larger conurbation.

I'm wondering if it's more local....a consortium may include people interested in developing the football.

Pure speculation but I am sober!

Villa and Wolves are absolutely stinking rich, particularly the latter who are owned by Fosun, some sort of chinese consortium i think worth billions. They have aspirations to get in the champions league and expand the stadium to 50,000+. Doing both of these will probably cost them upwards of 200 million.

Not sure that a large club owner are looking to purchase us to build a 40k stadium, or generate some losses to offset against profits they may have from football interests.

Many of the bigger investors in football at Prem or Champ level are now from the Far or Middle East, with the occasional American thrown in. TV money alone, makes this happen.

With due respect, i am not aware that these regions of the world are so into rugby that they would invest even £30 million in Warriors.

Steve Morgan is my pie in the sky given his similarities to CD in terms of Industry background, love of sport and philanthropy. No basis for it, but has dabbled with higher end sport in the past, and may be interested in doing so again.

Appreciate Ashley was meant as an ironic suggestion.

However he claims to have spent £250 million on Newcastle during his tenure and the opening bid was £300 million so it seems he will yet again make money. Seems to be a horrible person but a successful and shrewd businessman

Good on you, so nice to hear of people still making things! Iíd missed the Defender relaunch somewhere along the line, probably something to do with JLR deciding to leave a 4 year gap in production.

Steve Morgan, as in Redrow Homes?
Arenít they a club sponsor.
Would be interesting as he likes to focus on detail and he is known to be a bit of a perfectionist

I donít think Steve Morgan is going to get involved with another professional sports team, think he enjoys his spare time holidaying in the Carrabien too much for that.

Residential building land isn't so scarce that they'd need to take such a convoluted route to obtaining it.

This obsession over the land - you'd think it was the only viable development site in the county!

It is probably the main thing of value in the purchase proposal for the club, so unsurprisingly people will look to see who might be interested in buying land as a by product( or maybe the jewel?) of buying a loss making rugby club. Just maybe.

As for Morgan holidaying in the Caribbean- CD spent half of his time away from the UK, and the Allenís appear to rarely be visible at Sixways, so not sure that would hamper potential interest from the likes of a Morgan type figure.

Ah yes, but there is still the underlying interest in the club there isn't there? Ok it would help balance the books - but it's still be as part of buying a club

If you just want land - as some imply - there are plenty of opportunities - cheaper and easier ones - for house builders and other developers
