I think you're reading it wrong. Firstly, there doesn't even seem to be a bid on the table from the Methven consortium. Just a general desire to provide an alternative to the other bid. Secondly, OxVox clearly state that they want more information from all parties, and are not happy with the (lack of) communication from any of them. They've also made it clear that they'll fully consult the membership once they know enough to be in a position to do so. Though their/our opinions are likely to be of little consequence unless the RTB is triggered, and possibly not even then.tomoufc wrote:OxVox committee appear to be favoring one bid over the other. Yet at the same time they're calling for clarity on all sides. If true it doesn't make any sense to me whatsoever. And if they are favoring one side they have no business doing so without a consultation of members.
Apologies in advance if I'm reading this wrong.
I suspect that Charlie's lot are hoping to join forces with OxVox at that point to scupper a stadium deal for Ashton. But it's unclear whether Ashton's bid involves the stadium at all!
Having said that, some of the committee presumably know Charlie through their mutual Yellow Army work so there must be a bit of chumminess there already. But fwiw I think OxVox are handling this as well as can be expected.
