Just been reading the thread about the Calder area and wondered if it's time for a similar idea in the east of Manchester? I personally want Oldham to be that team , but the way things are going my grandkids will be lucky to see that team. So..... would s new team encompassing the east of manchester be successful? I know there will be cries of derision and some abuse. But .... what do neutrals in particular think?
Twelve months ago, I may have agreed with you. Salford were struggling and there was a potential gap in the market to rival them.
Not now though. Lots has changed already since The Dr and Ed Farish have arrived and more changes are in the pipeline. Now's not the right time.
Rugby league struggles in the Rochdale/ Oldham area as it is, the last thing that is needed is another entity to rival them for players and revenue. The sport needs to be united, not to continually split itself in two.
