Not a done deal yet, I heard the report on Manchester Radio twice this afternoon, but they only said, "Had made an offer". So we will have to wait and see how fickle the RFL can be. But the quote from Dales statement I think says it all, " Secure Spotland so the Football Club can be there for the next 100 years, oh and by the way we will give Hornets a lease.ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD OUR BOARD AGREE FOR THE RFL TO SELL THE SHARES
I am a supporter of both the Football Club and the Rugby Club. I want them both to survive and blossom using Spotland Stadium. However I feel that I am in a minority so far as the Football Club and Fan is concerned.
If the current debt of the Stadium is £670k I would be amazed if the Football club are prepared to take that figure on in a grand takeover. I would also be very very concerned as to the continued presence of Hornets at Spotland with the Football Club as a landlord.
If the pitch is now able to sustain Football and Rugby how come that we still have to play away for six matches on the trot around the month of June. We are currently tolerated by the Football cub but with a change in ownership we would be doomed.
I am concerned that we have had nothing but silence from the Hornets Board on this absolutely crucial situation.
The offer to the RFL by the Football Club may only be an offer but HORNETS SHOULD BE ADDRESSING THIS HERE AND NOW.
