1. Wasps come to AP as tenants and do their own thing on their own day without bothering us. Fine
2. Wasps decide that they are renting somewhere that is not to their needs and find somewhere more suitable. Whether that is by building somewhere of their own or finding another landlord, it's not our problem and it shouldn't bother us. Fine.
What we have had though and what has indeed threatened our demise is:
Wasps come to AP as tenants and find things not to their liking and propose that we sell our ground so that we can build them something more to their liking. Not fine.
All the whys, wherefores and whos are merely adornments to these basic facts. The ideal scenario would be the Reading/London Irish model although Reading is nigh on a city with a major railway station, subsidiary local stops and a well designed multifaceted mass transport system. Wycombe's council have never supported the professional sporting clubs of the town to anywhere near the same degree and Adam's Park is not big enough for the RFU's requirements even if it were big enough for Wasps'.
Also with a shiny new 17500 seat stadium up the road and mounting maintenance costs to keep Adams Park afloat, how long before the owners of WWFC (who ever they may be) decide that the only option is ... more
They are a negative impact on the football club no matter that the monetary benefit allegedly is. If WW prospective new owners come out with pro Wa*p* propaganda then they will lose my support in one ... more
For me, the problem with the Booker debacle was the way that Wasps, Hayes and WSDL tried to IMPOSE their project on the football club and the town without proper consultation, with a crappy proposal... more
I completely agree. Unlike some others I think that stadium sharing MAY be the most pragmatic option in this day and age, though I wholeheartedly concur with Benny's view that a) it should be clearly ... more
How good, or bad, have London Wasps been for WWFC? I'm not sure it is even possible to produce meaningful figures and reasonings to make a case either way? Moreover it is not in anyone's interest to... more
I see the latter being a problem because Wasps home games could coincide with Wycombe home games, which would have a direct impact on attendance. At least at the moment, home supporters can choose to ... more
The further out of Wycombe the better in my veiw for Wasps, but thats just my opinion. Wycombe will never demise. The club will alway function in one way or another at what ever level it best adapts... more
Not what others may claim it to be. This isn't based on heresay (although it could be considered heresy!). It was as a result of writing to RFU for a definitive answer. They were exceedingly helpful... more
If the sale goes ahead (and I say IF because there doesn't appear to be anything definite yet and various reports in the press keep putting the proposed decision date backwards) then it will depend... more
Dont no about that i would be more worried that reading in the premiership and possibility about the franchise being in the championship the not so loyal fan could easily go and watch them instead of ... more
