    Rocky mentioned that you lot had under pitch heating, is this true? Our deputy groundsman put an article up justifying the reason for cancelling the last match and mentioned the cost of fitting heating under the pitch (£400k) and the daily cost of £2k. So I was surprised that you can afford it and pay for any players. Or was Rocky just pulling our blue and amber leg?

    I think it was put in around the time the Waspies moved in. Probably used the first year's rent on getting it installed and every year's since then getting it maintained!

    The irony of getting it is that sometimes the pitch is clear but the games get called off because of the safety concerns of the car park being a bit slippery!!

    I'm sure Wasps paid for the installation themselves when they moved in.

    Why did QPR have an interest in it? Sorry don't know your full history.

    Wasps were groundsharing with QPR.

    Fulham had to leave craven cottage whilst it underwent construction to meet premier league regulations they wanted to use QPR but it already had a tennant. So they paid for the undersoil heating at wycombe to allow wasps to move in to adams park
