Them moving to Kidlington would be like us moving to Highworth.
Only difference being that Highworth is still within the borough and Kidlington is outside the city council area.

The vote was non-binding and pretty insignificant. There's nowhere in the city it could be built and putting it right next to the newish train station (Oxford Parkway) and the park & ride would make a lot of sense. Unlike the current site there are also shops & pubs already there, it's not in the arse end of nowhere, or on the edge of a huge council estate, or next to a sewage works.

Ah, so that's where Oxford Parkway is.
Yeah, that would make sense as a new ground location, short of knocking a couple of colleges down which won't happen.
Would boost the local economy as well.

Someone posted a link to a website that had the details for all teams, based on that ours was about 2m last season

That list has Cian Harries as our fourth highest earner and Morgan Roberts on more than Khan. It seems like guesswork at best.

Dukes comments yesterday would suggest that 2m is still too high.

Around 1.6m

As for Williams reportedly on over 4K per week laughable.
