who knows. The club will certainly have more chance of recruiting good players with Nobby on board.
I think they will be wise to restart their academy and try and sign a few youngsters on the cheap, however I don't have a full understanding of the academy structures and restrictions on signing players from other clubs.
Any talented kid and his parents would see huge benefits by joining a newly established Salford Academy, providing it is well managed with talented coaches.
Bring in a few journeymen and a couple of stars for the short term, but the academy to me seems the cheapest and most fruitful option
