Lots took issue with a segment claiming the club’s owners didn’t want things to distract on-pitch performances, something they feel SISU has been doing themselves throughout their time with the Sky Blues.
This comes days after they unveiled plans to find a new home if they were forced out of the Ricoh. Lots of supporters seem to be incensed that this is a distraction in itself, calling their owners slimy and that the statement was rich.
Other individuals were frustrated with the statement calling the bid for the club low, expressing that for a team who could be left homeless it was good value.
However, one Sky Blue urged people to get a grip claiming that SISU were in things for the long haul.
Here’s the best of the reaction.

We’re potentially homeless and the club as we know it could cease to be in a matter of weeks.
Wouldn’t want to distract from the teams efforts though would we.

Low bid? A League 1 club, with no stadium, a stack of accumulated debt and a training ground the owners are already eyeing up to sell off for housing.
What exactly are they thinking someone is going to offer?
And talking of distractions, this nonsense about a new stadium…. ?

If a legit bid then it’s great. But as always sisu not interested. I think it would take a stupid amount to get a deal done. V frustrating as a fan.

Surely SISU have ploughed so much money in, they’re only hope of remotely breaking even is to stick with ownership until the club is back in the big leagues? My guess is they are in too deep to sell up for £7m+

Low bid – £7mil for a club that doesn’t own its own stadium and could be playing non-league football next season seems a cracking offer to me!

Get a grip you lot!!! SISU are in for the long haul now. We won’t be homeless and we won’t be kicked out the league ??
