#3051048 Salford Red Devils

Posted by Red Willow on 02 January 2015 - 09:40 AM

Salford are usually low on season ticket sales, fans usually like to roll up and changing this mentality has been hard.


This year shirts have arrived before Christmas, all the players arrived for pre season before Xmas and went to Scotland for a team bonding. The club are opening an outlet in the Lowry centre there are now large adverts on the bridges over the East Lancs Road.


There has been a link up with all the local clubs and this has included teams I Manchester (as mentioned above) and Bury as well as Salford.


It is small steps but hope things will continue to improve.


Will any of this affect the on field performance, who knows

Isn't this just a holding contract before he joins the Black and Whites?

Theo has matured physically during the last year, put on weight in all the right places and has impressed defensively. Salford have actually done a good job bringing him through.


I believe boarding him with a local family helped him settle after leaving home at 16. I am hopeful Ferret will also benefit in the same way.

Flower to serve a long ban for hitting a prone man on the floor.

#2965399 Salford launch Season Tickets

Posted by Red Willow on 25 July 2014 - 05:16 PM

What the hell is going on, it isn't Christmas or New Year, and Salford manage to launch season tickets for next year!!! Shocking display of professional marketing not something we are used to.



Advert is very game of thrones      http://www.thereddev...on-ticket-info/

His manager should be embarrassed for not briefing him before the presentation.

Rich owners of Chelsea, Man City etc have been ridiculed for years and rightly so - what have they done for football, in particular the national team.


I don;t want RL to go down that route and applaud the RFL for keeping this idiot at arms length



Man City are doing a lot for the local area, building facilities which may result in young english players coming through.


Koukash can defend himself and does invite some of the comments. However the impact on this type of programme and ridicule on other potential investors  is the main problem for me.


The RFL haven't managed to progress the professional sport outside the traditional areas or support. We are too insular in our appointments and the people who have managed to acheive all seem to have moved on.

Any one who resorts to petty name calling is already undermining their argument.


Expecting anyone regardless of their wealth to construct an academy, feeder clubs and a service area within 12 months of taking over a basket case of a club is epecting a little too much I think.


In 5 years Salford need to be regularly bringing through more of their own players. This season alone we have had Fages, Evalds, Walne, Walne, Walton playing but of course Salford don't produce any talent.

The biggest problem for London will be to build a squad in such a short space of time. In previous years clubs have complained about the unfairness for promoted clubs, next year London will face the same problem of assembling a squad.


News today George Griffin joins his brothers at Salford next year.

#2959624 Gareth Hock

Posted by Red Willow on 15 July 2014 - 07:03 PM

Hock hasn't been bad whilst at Salford, I've not had a problem with his behaviour and some of the comments on here are rabid.


any contact with a ref has to be treated as if intended and in this case 7 games lies within the guidelines and he has previous. No argument from me.

I think Koukash has made some good points which have been undermined by the dramatics he seems to enjoy.


The RFL seems to be an inward looking company, we need to broaden the board and attract the best business brains we can. We will not grow the sport without new blood and here is where Koukash could be a positive force but needs to temper his outbursts.


A marque player could be a huge benefit in selling the game but there needs to be some safe guards to stop abuse of process. Maybe some sort of scheme where the amount exempted has to be equalled in an academy which should grow the local game.

10-36 final score and the last 20 mins with 12 men!!


Amazing what a little pace can do.


Maybe Harris isn't a rubbish coach after all.

What a debut for Locke, 60 m try and kicking the goals.

The Doc does prod the rabid animal though. Saying we have signed 2 more tigers isn't endearing him. The whole internet appears to be inhabited by 10 year old boys at times. Just look at The turkey on rlfans, full of fans from other clubs telling Salford fans what they think.


It bores me so I ignore it. If Cas fans think the abuse will help Marc Sneyd obtain a release hey need to be certified. The Doc is more likely to dig in his heels
