Arsenal cannot do it unless Arsene Wenger leaves,
Man Utd have done it more than any other British club,
Liverpool have done it once but not in the usual way,
Everton, Oldham and Charlton have all done it once but Wimbledon will NEVER
do it unless Crystal Palace go
bankrupt.

OK, I've had half an hour to think and I can't. Some stadium move meets foreign manager malarkey innit? (with a bit of something else thrown in besides)

Liverpool in ?Dublin
Wombles - if CP goes belly up, Wombles as tenants will have to move.


Cannot remember all the answer, was too busy remodelling the kitchen at the time.


Sounds good to me, but what's all this about if Arsene Wenger leaves?

Apparently it is about playing home games away from your own ground.

Wenger has said they'll never do it again whilst he is manager (Wembley)

Man utd were at Maine Road in the forty's

Liverpool did it in Dublin

The other three have all done it

and, of course, Wombledon don't have their own ground.

So how does that tie in with Wimbledon NEVER doing it unless Palace go bankrupt? Surely they do it (play home games away from their 'home') all the time?

Everyone at work now on to this...

How about they've all played their home games at other grounds whilst their own grounds still exist.

The exception being Wimbledon as Plough Lane has gone, and they could only own Selhurst if Palace go tits up.

Just a thought.

Because if Palace go out of business then Selhurst will become Wombles ownground. Man of Kent's answer sounds good too

I obviously need to take a course in logic but...

If we're saying that the answer is about playing home games away from their own ground, then going back to the original question...

Arsenal cannot do it... yeah, ok, they won't play at Wembley, etc.

Man Utd have done it more than any other British club - this can't be about number of games then, must be about different grounds...

Liverpool - what's so special about their one, then?

Everton, Oldham and Charlton - ok, don't really know, but I'll live with this one.

Wimbledon - the question says they'll NEVER do it (i.e. play a game a home game away from their home ground) unless we go bankrupt. But they could buy another ground now (e.g. Milton Keynes) and not play at home there. We don't have to go bankrupt for them to do it.

So either the riddle isn't written very well or we still haven't got the right answer!

Do you see why I'm confused?!

Do you know the answer Gaffer, and if so could you please post it! http://www.cpfc.org/ubb/biggrin.gif

The answer above cannot be right. It says, that Charlton have done it once, well they played a couple of season's away from home.

The key is in the Wimbledon question; What does CP going broke have to do with Wimbledon?
Palace are also tennents of Altonwood, so, if Palace went broke, Altonwood could work directly with Wimbledon. But, surprisingly (sadly not true), most people think Wimbledon are tennents at Palace, but, really both Palace and Wimbledon are tennents of Altonwood!

Surely, the answer must have something to do with having less fans in the area you play in, hence, if Palace go bust, Wimbledon's local support would go down as all the "joint" supporters (all 2 of them) would probably give up football :-)

That all makes much more sense! Thanks for reassuring me I wasn't being too stupid!

How about this for an answer

Arsene Wenger said Arsenal would never share with any sporting teams.
Old Trafford hosts the rugby league premiership final every year.
Everton, Oldham and Charlton have all (we think) hosted rugby league while
Liverpool has hosted a rugby union match.
And assuming that Wimbledon would share with a rugby club if Palace went
bust and they kept Selhurst Park as their own ground.

Arsene Wenger has said "no" to a proposed move of the Silk-Cut Challenge
cup
final from Wembley to Highbury.
There have been loads of RL games (usually Silk-Cut Semi's and
Internationals) held at Old Trafford.
In the recent RL World Cup, Anfield staged a friendly game for the
Aussie's
to get some practice in (so a non-competitive game and hence not in the
usual way).
Everton and Oldham have staged RL games.
The London Bronco's used to ground share the Valley with
Charlton.........Wimbledon wanted to ground share with the London
Bronco's,
but forgot
it's not their ground anyway....... and Crystal Palace said NO!
