According to John WIlkinson the RFL are heading the negotiations with a potential investor.

Utter cobblers.Drop the dog in a manger attitude while you're at it.
Bradford raised 500k in a short space of time from fans, indicating a decent level of backing/affection. I genuinely hope the same sort of thing can happen for Salford but at present, the signs don't seem good in that respect.

Don't start stamping your feet and being offended on behalf of Salford or berating the RFL for your perceived injustice. You've no more idea what they may or may not be doing than anyone else. So put a sock in it!

I appreciate the thought, VW, but there is so little information out there that nobody knows what is happening. It was the same with Bradford, if you remember, lots of assurances that a buyer was in negotiation, but no hard facts at all. Add in the fact that it is close-season and there are no games for fans to get together, and you can see why we are in the dark. As for the "fans raising money" idea, well in-season it might be possible, though I doubt it, out-of-season we just don't have the structures needed to get the word out and the dosh in.

I do hope there is a buyer in the wings, but I'm resigned to Salford going out of existence on Jan 7th. It'll be a sad day for me, but I'll get over it eventually.

I hope not, but who knows? I certainly think it could be that serious. What I expect to happen is that Salford will survive in some form or other.

I ask myself if I would buy the club (after winning tonight's lottery of course) and I don't know. In its present form, it is not a viable business, so only someone with a great deal of business acumen should even consider it. I hope such a person is out there, but I'm not confident.

I agree with Tony. I just wish they would get it over with, I am sick of it all.

We are stuck in a terrible "no-mans land" - we are insolvent, so can't sell seasons / membership and facing winding up, but still have two thirds of a super league team to pay. We are not strong enough to play a SL season, but can't go to Champ 1 in this format. Folded up and chucked in the bin awaits unless something happens soon.

Your friend Mick just texted me this news. He is keeping well in case you're interested.

Mick is still alive then?

I'll let John M know so he can stop worrying. :rolleyes:

In 'The Game that got away', Salford were depicted as one of the better off clubs with a casino and plans to add squash courts,
having the BBC re-locate was said to be a shot in the arm too, what has gone wrong? should they have stayed at the Willows?
If this club is allowed to go under as Wakefield, Bradford and Crusaders before them, isn't it time that fans had a say in the make up of the RFL? Their financial checks which form part of the granting of SL franchises need looking into at the very least.

They had Squash courts. That ramshackle building next to the Doctors- no, not the Willows- used to be 3 squash courts owned by Salford RLFC, I know I played there for the School, but as with everything under the GREAT GOD Wilko, it was sold off, they used to have training facilities in Davyhulme, and owned the Willows Club, but it was all asset stripped over the last 30 years. They used to OWN the best facilities in the RFL, now they own a stadium that the Council wants nothing to do with.

Why on earth do you say this after all the posts explaining the financial checks are there to find the 14 best clubs, and are NOT there to guarantee the 14 picks are all financially sound.

As all the posts passim explain if you want a financially sound Superleague then it's a matter of a six club Superleague playing each other five times.
