This is all becoming a real side show with at the end of it no winners. I feel for MC and CB as from what I read they have invested loads into the club. I feel for everyone involved at whatever level including players, officials and supporters.
Not one of you is going to like this but in order to save a great club for the rest of its days, A Ground Share has to be looked at NOW.

Settle down, think of the future.

Yes I am a Cas fan but I have always stated Wakefield are my second club so save the club. Realistically are there any winners in this and if Wakefield were to win in court I fear it would be to late for continuing SL status.

Sorry if this post offends

I guess if we go halfs with Cas, that means we get a ground for 50p?

Simple. both clubs need a ground. It looks like there is only one option at the minute (Junction 32). If that is Castleford as tenants, so what. I'm sure financially MC can negotiate a better deal than that that is offered at the moment.
It is the Wakefield clubs future that has to be secured otherwise the next nail in the coffin will come from the RFL.

People are going to have to stop sounding like they are delivering ultimatums or appearing to push people in to corners.
You realize its 50/50, or it ain't happnin, Wakey can stay handicapped to hell financially where they are, they don't need to go to Cas for it on the basis that they have no choice.
There are choices, one of them isn't playing 2nd fiddle in Glasshoughton, we both share the same Council, Cas are no more deserving than Wakey, whilst Glasshoughton is a massive compromise, its not unthinkable provided the footing is equal.
Dunno how that's gonna work though.

Actually, now that you mention it, Glasshoughton is a massive compromise for one club, how much of a compromise is Newmarket for Cas, and how high would the will levels be to build it, if both clubs shared it

Like I said before on a previous post this is what Box and the council have always wanted, but it's a no for me if it happens it's the end of my interest in trinity.

Newmarket is 5.2 miles from the current home of both clubs, that is the only logical position for a groundshare. I'm sure it could be done on equal terms through the community trust too so that both clubs had equal benefit
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

Have the club clarified where we will be playing next season.

88M say we have no tenancy at Belle Vue beyond January because Carter served notice to quit last January. So have the club arranged to play and operate from somewhere else have they begun clearing out the offices, made provision to resite the hospitality block etc etc

When I read Manny Hussain’s statement I still thought there was room for us to do a U-turn and stay at Belle Vue but there’seems to be zero chance of that now.

Once the deadline is passed I won’t be surprised if 88M padlock the doors and start charging the club for everyday that they still have buildings on their land.

Also, if their actions once securing the Super Bowl site is anything to go by they’ll have the demolition team in and start tearing things down straight away.
