I am not sure about Clague, but Wilky has no money problems at his other businesses, so he said at the fans meeting. I guess they have taken enough losses?
I can understand why fans would not ask a question that basically says "why don't you spend more of your money on us", but this beating around the bush doesn’t really answer some very important questions.
One is at this point in time with the Barton ground agreement and a 5,200 fan base how much a year are the club short of being a competitive club that can attract fans and quality players. Neil Hudgell was clear at HKR that sum was £500,000 on a fanbase of 7,800 for Rovers. A fag packet calculation says Salford are £600,000 short a season being competitive
So to me the answer seems to be that Mr. Wilkinson & his partner are capable of £600K a year, but as the fans haven’t come to Barton in enough numbers he’s not going to do that forever more. whether he knows anything about the likely make up of SL 2015 and that’s colouring his judgement who knows?
As for going forward the other key question is answered, Salford can’t play at Barton if they are not in Superleague. If that’s the case where do they play and if at the end of the day Salford will have to do a Swinton then surely the fans money should be for that and not propping anything up that’s destined to fall down
