    6:the one thing i can understand! we are home one week,Tigers at home next.
    But we won't have a home, and never will again because half of it will forever belong to the Leicester Tigers. 120 years down the pan...the 'celebrations' have all of a sudden turned into a wake.

    If we carry on the way we are we will one day own the Stadium for LCFC and LCFC alone...the quick fix is just a new way of selling our future out!
    our new home is the same as everyone elses new home, IMO we should have stayed at filbert street and deveolped that. walkers stadium has no character, yes it's our home, but put in red seats and it's southamptons home, put in white and black seats and it's derby's home. we sold our heritage, history, etc to the developers of the filbert village flats!

    just got read this on the OS boards from Shummy(who has posted on here in the past)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ...... I've just spoken to a 'Man' in the know at Welford Road...

    a) It's more or less a done deal (Stadium naming rights causing issues)

    b) City will fund this as it will be easier than carrying on the way they are currently paying back the creditors (?)

    c) At least this way they actually own 50% of the stadium

    d) The picth is big enough under the rules of the RFU

    e) Stadium will be kitted out 50/50 of colours of both sides

    He is supposed to ring back later, so will try and get more.

    I wanna know about ticket office, megastore etc.

    I'm afraid this is looking likely to happen, no matter what WE (the important people) think.

    Shum

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    We met with City last night

    1) Naming rights belong to Walkers for 10 years - so not an issue, the fact that Walkers will now get more for their money & therefore should cough up more is something we raised last night.

    2) The exact financial set up is not finalised

    3) Certainly not agreed on 50/50 colours

    as far as i can see, the nearest precedent is the Madejski Stadium

    correct if i'm wrong but:-

    1) Reading FC get priority over fixtures (and London Irish play a lot of sunday games)
    2) the seats are all Reading colours
    3) the pitch holds up ok
    4) no-one moans about lack of identity
    5) everyone always goes on about Reading as one of the most financially best run clubs in the land

    But don't Reading own their ground and the Rugby team just pay them to play there where as here it would be a third party.

    The ground belongs to the football club, has always been owned by the football club, and will always be owned by the football club

    NB for "football club" read Mr bankrolling Madjeski (hence the financial staus of the club)

    Might as well compare beer with cesspit scum water - me and Highland will confirm that there really is no comparison at all
    I'm not sick, but I'm not well....

    I've been to the Madejski a few times (Reading's my closest club), and as I far as I can remember it's basically all Reading there. The rugby club just play there, it's not got any of their stuff there..

    thats because reading FC own the stadium. we will only own half of it therefore only entitled to half of it.

    i used to work next to the stadium, it is all Reading

    but like foxfan says, it's because they own it

    it's a double-edged sword, because we don't own the ground we need a lodger and for the same reason we might well get a red/green away end

    personally i don't think they'll change the seats, too much cost surely
