Koukash true to his word

27 posts in this topic

One of the priorities of Dr Koukash on taking over Salford was to retain the young players from our own academy.

 

This is now starting to happen with both Sneyd and Evalds signing new deals both 2 year deals.

 

In the past we would have lost these players.

 

Since the takeover we have

 

replaced the board.

replaced the coaching set up

signed Griffin

 

tied up 2 of our young talent

 

Sent out 2 players that simply didn't fit the plans on loan for the season and received 2 better players in return.

 

It will take time but at least things are happening.

 

 

 

 

New thread just so Parky can't derail with the same ramblings as the 8 page one on the cap.

Do you see signing Darrell Griffin on reputedly over £100k per year as a positive step?  No wonder he wants to break the cap signing dross like him on that kind of money.

I'll derail it instead then

 

I honestly thought you meant he'd just overspent on the cap :laugh:

I'm pretty confident that Griffin cannot command a salary like that.

Griffin will be on nowhere near that kind of money.

In a market woefully short of props, signing for a club completely cashed up and desperate for him?  He certainly isn't worth that kind of money.  I know Trinity started talks with him and walked away, and the issue was Koukash's skewing of the market.

I think he'd have got short shrift from Wakey fans if he'd come back to Trinity.

I'm having a senior moment, Howarth is one, who is t'other?

I think RW has (perhaps) posted this to counter all those posters on here who claim that Dr Koukash is "all mouth and no trousers".

 

I know he wants "instant success", but some of you lot are even more impatient than he is. :O

 

Give him some time, he's only had 3 months in charge at the worst possible time of the year for signings. Patience is a virtue! :)

Not sure why Salford wanted Howarth, I nearly fell off my chair when Saints took him, and I thought my house would fall down when they played him in the halves.  I just don't see it with him as yet, although he'll no doubt be better for the experience he's got this year.

Lack of choice due to lack of money is the reason we signed many of our players

I'm both pleased "things are happening", and pleased to elevate this sinking thread to a higher place.

I guess the next step is to increase the spend/quality of the academy system itself, to produce more of these guys and even attract rising talent from other clubs.

Depending on how the league structure vote goes there could well be more juniors looking to move out from relegation threatened clubs. I guess Salford want to ensure that they are in that spot comes the end of 2014, hence the overspending on marginal players?

Simple solution to Salford's salary cap quandary is to simply allow Dr K to 'pay off' some of the dead wood he's been saddled with without it counting on the club's cap allowance.

To me, that isn't affecting the integrity of the comp, it's simply allowing a new investor to take the club forward without being saddled with the baggage of the previous administration's mismanagement for the next 2-3 years.

All good stuff, Question for you, Are the locals sitting up and taking notice, are the home crowds rising ? hope so.

Crowds aren't increasing at present but there is still a huge amount of disillusionment with the fans we do have.

I hope that the end of the season will bring a re launch of the club.

We have a curry night for the Bradford game, and I'm sure other things are in the pipeline. Hope to get more fans once the football season is done

Did you steal the curry night idea from london broncos?

It'll take time and, contrary to some opinion, more than a winning team to switch on the local population.

The club has been mismanaged for as long as I can remember and, despite the quality of the venue, the location of the stadium presents as many challenges as it does opportunities.
