- 6 Dec 2017
All members should now be in receipt of two updates today, 6th January.
I tend to agree.I'd be interested to know OxVox's view on the viability of the four potential stadium sites. It is only relative recently that OxVox came to the conclusion that "the most sensible option for a long term, sustainable home for OUFC, is where it is now. The Kassam Stadium on Grenoble Road."
Is there something inherently different about these four sites which could possibly change that conclusion? No need to reveal the location of the four sites, but some sort of indication as to whether they are sensible or fanciful wouldn't go amiss.
Has your thoughts changed if today’s news is real?It's interesting to see the wider update regarding Tiger. Whilst there are still some questions to be answered, I think the situation around the HMRC has been reasonably explained but I guess it will really depend on what the exceptional additional spending was for. The fact that OxVox were comfortable with the reasoning and feel it could benefit the club in the future is enough for me.
Equally it is good to see that there are some real sites in mind for future development. Surprisingly after @The Hawk gave assurances that Bicester would be the new location, this seems to have been dismissed. Who'd have thought??!! We always knew that there would be commercial confidentialities with any site so I'm happy that progress is happening even if this will stay behind the scenes for some time.
I guess we just need to see how the next 3 weeks pan out in regard to getting the right players in and helping us to safety for this season when hopefully things will be in place for a more positive 2019/20 season.
It very much depends on the explanation of today's events and how they impact on what happened previously. As has been mentioned, this may be linked to previous payment plans and may quickly be resolved. Alternatively it might be an indication of bigger financial issues, but that doesn't mean that previous events weren't reasonably explained.Has your thoughts changed if today’s news is real?
