Our lot will probably offer to ground share with them while its being built. Wouldn't surprise me one little bit with this lot in charge, they would sell us out for a few quid

Are you sure? About the ground share at least 😉 As the trust own half the pitch Im sure they could veto that. Can you imagine the carnage if that did happen and we were in the same league? Fuck meeeeeee.

Current lease runs out in 2026. No idea if 3 years is a realistic timescale to get things done. Seems very short.

Will depend on how much they have done at risk in the background I suspect. Starting from scratch 3 years is no hope, but if they have a scheme drawn up with consultants well on with the planning submission package prep (which would have taken a commitment of a few 100K's at least) they may have a chance albeit they will need a following wind and a lot of political support I suspect. Worth bearing in mind that the planning lies in the gift of Cherwell rather than Oxford City Council?

I thought they had a legal timescale to start getting things done.

Believe so, but where do you see the money coming from?

Indeed, plus who is actually taking money out of the club at the moment to screw us over?

My Oxford supporting mate is of the impression that they were are already prepared for it to be passed today and stuff was already in motion to follow quickly after. I think their owners are well versed in building stadia, i think they built DC United stadium in Washington too. I think they can only use this land for a stadium too, so think that counts out pubs etc

Billionaires too, which will help somewhat im sure!

Dont think the Kidlington locals are too keen on the idea

Although there are a few complainers there are also a lot of fans here - nearly every shop has a signed shirt up and Josh Ruffels (now at Huddersfield) was a particularly well-liked player due to being from Oxford and Kidlington.

Obviously over the moon they've kept the 3 side theme going by purchasing a triangle but otherwise I hope it drags on for a little while at least.

I suspect that as we haven't played them for over 20 years is driving ticket numbers a bit, plus it will be a new ground for many younger supporters?
