In Topic: Salford money issues again (merged threads)

26 August 2015 - 08:02 AM

The previous club and it's debts run up by Wilkinson are part of a CVA, the loan from the council is part of that. This deal prevented Salford from having points deducted. I am not sure what the RFL could do if he walks away from it in the off season.

 

The new loan is nothing to do with Salford, the council are supporting their own business but the rabid Garido crony tories don't want that to be true so spin it.

 

Has Marwen invested? I'd say yes, the new gym, the under 19's winning 7 games on the trot before the weekend loss are evidence of it.  Sheens coming in. The players, some of which have turned out to be a waste of money (Locke)

 

Some Leigh fan approached Marwen in a pub  and accused Salford of losing to Bradford out of spite to hurt Leigh.

 

Why he is the target of quite so much abuse is hard to fathom, yes he is outspoken and lacks PR skills, although this seems to be finally reaching him. May be fans want another team to fail.

Typical Salford, we always have to make it harder than it ought to be. Bradford played well from the commentary I heard.

 

Then again so would say Salford did it just to P off Leigh,

Is Jodie still working part time, if so I assume his new wage will cover that.

 

He had a reasonable strike rate at Salford.

Surprised by the score. Leigh have some great backs but the forwards seem to be lacking. Don't think the ref impacted on the score, some Salford fans were unhappy as well.

 

I think the difference was the defensive efforts by Salford. In the cup game Salford played most of the game without 2 or 3 of the bench and lost Dobson leaving Patterson to play at standoff.

 

I did wonder what the impact of all tough games would have on the Championship teams, no week off in this comp,

 

Glad to get this game out of the way.

Frantic game watched it with a bunch of Wigan fans (although they were Salford fans for the day)

 

Not sure what next week will hold, hope Rangi stops gifting tries. Let him off after the length of the field try.
