Its a sad state of affairs.I wouldnt want to see them leave sheffield,but if needs must on a temp basis then so be it. Could The Dorothy Hyman stadium in cudworth be an option as a temp home ?

Lets be honest here, they could surely see it coming. For many years there has been problems with playing at Don Valley for them. Whether this be because of athletic meets or other events. The ball should have been set into motion many years before the announcement of the closure of Don Valley. It was never a good option for a ground in terms of it feeling like a 'home' and also for spectators and fans.

Play the big games at Bramall Lane, and play out of town for the smaller games. If, for example, they played the smaller games at Fev, and let their season ticket holders in for half price, the money they got off Fev fans would pay for free busses for Eagles fans to travel from Sheffield. Might even get more away fans, cos Fev is nearer to most. Wakefield is also another option if you want to slum it.At least it would give the Eagles time to get another stadium ready!

What was the supposed deal with Bawtry Road (Sheffield Hallam University's sports complex)? I've looked at the redevelopment plans and it didn't look anywhere good enough for the Championship, let alone the proposed second tier of Super League

Looking at it and trying to turn it into a possitive ive looked at possible venues for home games next season in a totally different light having given up hope of a local venue.I think south leeds stadium should be consided sharing with the hawks if possible from s1 to ls11 is around 35 mile nearly all motorway.If we were to play the west yorkshire sides there thats batley,dewsbury,halifax,keighley and featherstone taken care of.Maybe take the crusaders home game to south wales arms park on the new i pitch if poss.The doncaster game may be give up home avantage and play it at the keapmoat.The three cumbians sides id take games if poss to fleetwood town highbury stadium 5,327, morcambe globe arena 6,476 and southport haig ave 6,008 capacity.If they could get them spread out three weekend by the sea might appeal to fans.That just leaves leigh , swinton and possibly oldham again the south leeds stadium if possible.Could maybe have a couple of double headers with the hawks especial in cardiff with eagles playing crusaders and south wales hosting the hawks .

What's the case with Rotherham Titans? Have they said no, or isn't it suitable?

Youre saying we should play home games in Morecambe?? Might as well just play them all down in Limoux if we are going to do that. We'll be at Owlerton next season.

Cricket is played in the summer at Clifton Lane. The club had purchased stands to put up at Bawtry Road but the University pulled the plug at the eleventh hour, which is why this situation has come about.

So they should drop the Sheffield name altogether, just become the Eagles and turn up at random non-league grounds and hope to draw some fans and make money?

Should we ask the suburb of Owlerton to be renamed Eagleton?

 

Owlerton isnt acceptable at the moment, but the club has stands that were ready to be used at Bawtry Road that can be used at the stadium, there are still issues with the pitch and changing rooms but one plus point would be the excellent corporate areas at the stadium.

mmmmm Morecambe... they have won the best pies in football award and featured heavily on TV because of the homemade pies they make at the football stadium.

 

Seems a good fit to me because I've always wanted to try their pies since hearing about how good they are on TV.
