It does occur to me that if we did nto have the salary cap, all the money would go into Salford.  It is better for the game this way.

Fortunately, it's now 2014 and not 1894, so your old fashioned rubbish rather misses the point.

It is not old fashioned to see Koulash as the éminence grise in this.

What happens if they get divorced? Obviously that hopefully wouldn't happen. But if it did wouldn't they both potentially be part owners of two clubs?

She would get the clubs, but he would get to take them to the game at weekends.

Be a Good Cup Final wouldnt it?  First time the 2 Chairmen walk out holding hands!

 

Great news if she pulls the deal off & thats from a Salford fan.

[Pedant mode]It wouldn't be the first though. Gary & Kath Hetherington walked out together as respective chairs of Leeds & Hull for the 2005 cup final/

It's an easy kick for the lad but, as we say in Rugby League, there's no easy kicks.

Anyone who comes in would have to work hard and smart to win over the wounded Bulls fans.

 

I think we'd be warm and welcoming, but certainly wary of bad news for a good few seasons.

I'd be slightly worried if I were a Salford fan! With the investment Salford have had the Bulls would be pulling in 15000 now at Odsal .How long before Koukash realises hes going to lucky to get half that at Salford and decides that Bradford is by far the better option long term?

I can't see a problem. Bradford need a rich owner and its appears there is one waiting in the wings.

And I know I'm firmly in the significant minority in this one, but I find it difficult to buy in to the hype surrounding Koukash and his money / aims / motives & dreams. I have an in built suspicion of the "saviours" that miraculously appear when a club is on its 'arris and put forward spectacular plans which generate media & supporter interest proclaiming a life-long love of the game. Then when the initial hubbub settles you usually find out that the interest isn't really that strong and the motives are somewhat less than philanthropic. I hope for everyone's sake that I'm wrong - and I'd be happy to be proved so, but I can't get over the feeling that something isn't quite what it seems.

Can't see it being a problem. If he was just looking to buy big clubs, he wouldn't have bid for Swinton. He surely realises that they are a club that will be lucky to get attendances a tenth of those Salford get.

I take it then you were equally skeptical when McManus and his buddy arrived at Saints' door in 2002?  We were over 2 mill in debt and on the verge of administration.  They came along and saved the club.

 

His buddy returned to the far east, but McManus is still here.  And we now have a shiny new stadium.

 

Sometimes saviours do exist and they do stick around.

I'm still sceptical - is there any Bulls fan out there who isn't with what has gone on in the past two years - but if she has put a bid in then this, for me, is the only option for the club. If rumours are true of the other people who have their hat in the ring, (including two former recent chairmen - good look with that if you take over lads...!) then this is far and away the best of a very bad bunch.

Also, Bradford need an owner that can come and give without taking, so Mandy is perfect.

Perhaps Dr Koukash is interested in Swinton as he might intend to use it as some kind of feeder club for Salford.  Swinton supporters will be in a better position to comment.

Hope this all comes about, It's the best "and probably the only thing" that will get the Bulls back where they want to be, All a bit early days of course but if it does go through I hope there is a plan to leave Odsal, Lot easier said than done but still i hope it does happen.

 

 Bulls fans deserve some good news, and to be honest i have never seen them as bad news as regards games, crowds etc.  It has been getting silly lately but that's hardly the fans fault.

Not at all and I'm struggling to see past that (although I'm not convinced that's a bad thing).

 

Nonetheless, it's not really a reason to patronise his wife.

When first buying Salford and saying he wanted to buy the stadium as well, he added that he only wanted it if he could have the retail development too. And with Swinton, his proposal to build a new stadium was only if he could also have the retail development. Seems to be a common thread to me. Bradford appears to be a different kettle of fish, but maybe he wants to get into the landfill business............
