It doesn’t look good from either side at this point. Wasps have made a complete dogs dinner out of a move that They claimed would have made them the richest in Europe, and should have seen them pick up trophies.

They moved mid season to a town miles away which already had a club, waving goodbye to thousands of fans from the south east in the process, have failed to build any proper links with Coventry RFC, are still without a proper training base and are now p1ssing off an entire village by replacing their sports centre with their own training centre, have millions in bonds still to repay, have (whoever's fault it is) failed on their promise to have Coventry City remain at the Ricoh, have fallen drastically down the table, have fallen out of the Champions Cup, haven’t won a single bit of silverware since the move, have crowds that are reducing by the thousands and are now annoying seemingly every Coventry man and his dog with their social media activity.

All of this coming about after Derek Richardson claimed the move was, in part, because the debt couldn’t be managed in Wycombe. That is the same debt that continues to rocket season after season at the Ricoh despite income improving massively and owning their own Stadium.

Whereas SISU have not helped at all, it has been, and continues to be, an absolute car crash of a move.

I can’t argue with any of that WS, I hated the idea of a club just upping sticks as Wasps did, and felt desperately sorry for their fans at the time. I thought it was the first tentative steps towards franchises and would have been gutted if the same had happened to us, i.e. “Warriors” playing somewhere with no link to the club.
Sad to see the way this has all gone, but not altogether surprised.

Nearly everything you said is factually incorrect and a bit embarrassing given the amount of time it prob took. Speaks to nothing but your own slanted agenda. Stick to what you know

So which bits are factually incorrect, H? It would be good to clarify, provide sources if possible.
