    A  surprising move. Just doesn't add up.

    This model will not work at the level Salford are playing at..

    The ongoing finances needed can't be raised from such a share issue.

    If it somehow hits the £250k threshold, the well will be empty & that temporary cash flow will not bridge the deficit until revenues increase sufficiently to cover expenditures.

    The owner model works perfectly well at many vlubs, why it should be so heavily criticised is a mystery.

    Why was the article published in what is very much a political magazine? I can't grasp what the thinking is or see the upside to it.

    I wish them well, but I get the feeling end is coming for Salford.




    This is a really daft and uneducated post.

    Salford, given a new stadium for free, left their crumbling dump, Hull FC, given a new stadium for free, left their crumbling dump, Widnes, still play at their original home, renovated by the council, Wire, benefited from the Tesco mega store period which no longer exists. Let's not rewrite history that these clubs were dragged kicking and screaming from their crumbling dumps, many were absolutely delighted with the fact, and both Trinity and Cas would've changed places with those clubs for the good fortune that found themselves in a heartbeat.

    And yet here we are 27 years later and only now are wakey getting there backside in gear and Cas are still in what is a delapidated tin shed. 

    I refuse to hide behind the woe is me attitude that they would swap place in a heartbeat. 

    27 years for god sake to invest in either existing or new stadium and nothing. It's just pathetic that it's been allowed to carry on for so long.

    I honestly can't get my head around the hatred on some of these threads for Cas based on people not liking their ground. It's old and could do with a new stand, I get it, but they own the ground don't they? A full Jungle looks great on TV with loud passionate rugby league fans. Isn't that what we want? Beats a massive football ground that's three quarters empty and you can hear a pin drop

    It's the fact that teams like saints, Salford, Hull, Warrington, Widnes all had to give up their traditional grounds. All owned by themselves, great when packed with brilliant atmospheres and loved by their fans. 

    They complied and had to move from these ground to their new ones in order to stay in super league. 

    Many a tear shed by lots of fans at each club having to leave. But was seen as the correct thing to move the game forward. 

    That's where the supposed "hatred"  comes from and why Cas and wakey should be both be removed from the league.

    Hi DS , has there been another announcement regarding Cas situation . As I understand it funds are in place once planning permission is given.

    We've heard that for years. You and Wakefield should both be demoted for the way you dragged out the stadium saga, whilst other clubs built new stadiums at the expensive of moving from there traditional homes.

    a warning to other SL clubs - NOW start learning the lesson of signing washed up NRL players like Kevin Proctor - utter waste of any clubs cash and resources 

    Lol, that's a hell of a thing to put on Kevin Procter shoulders. 


    Been coming for years and has just caught up with them. 

    Should have been forced to do the stadium like other clubs, but somehow dragged it out for another 2 decades. Finally caught up with them. 

    Castleford next please 🤞

    Nah keep it going. 😄

    Dupree and Wright excelled again and featured in SL team of the week after the Leigh win.

    Thought both were superb. 

    Dupree is really banging on the door for international recognition. He's having a blinder so far this season. And still a baby at 23, which is scary how much potential he has. 

    Wright has really settled into it this year and stepped up a gear as well. Looks more of a potent attacking threat to match the work effort as well.

    Start with this. I watched it back earlier and I will be honest those decisions were erm "curious." I was also unsure about one of the Leigh's tries as well and the Brierley sin binning, although in hindsight it could have ranged from a mere penalty to a red card depending on which ref was officiating.

    Salford looked more at the races from last week. They did the boring-completed the sets, ran hard, respected the ball and defended well. And at times there a revival of the unboring Rowleyball, fast and pacy. Dupree was outstanding, Croft and Sneyd playyed well. 

    I now enjoy visiting Leigh. Fans, staff are friendly, the away is ok and it's easy to get to and from.

    Elvis ersatz was great and the win was well erm celebrated latter as the sun descended.

    Victory four, six to go. Feel strangely optimistic. Next up is Castleford.🖐️😃🤟


    What happens at 10 wins?

  9. The play acting and constant arms in the air complaining is really waring thin and is embarrassing. 

    Every team does it now and I have no idea why it has crept in? 

    Bit of a whinge but seriously grinding my gears now and getting more disrespectful and like football, every season now. 

    Last whinge as well 🙂 do we constantly have to have back patting all the time? Can't remember the last time I saw someone get a mouthful off a team mate for a dumb play or mistake. Like a bunch of fragile prince's who need to patted on the back and told there still one of the boys. Just get on with it!! 


    Anyway happy Easter and glad I got that off my chest 🙂

  10. Thought we played okay but can do better as should have put that to bed earlier

    Defence wasn't the best and we missed a lot of tackles. 


    Think if we had a couple of props on the bench instead of second rows then we win that comfortably as we dropped off once replacement front row went on. 

    Big shout out to Chris aitkin who added some pace and urgency to the attack, his pass for one of the trys was superb and worth the entrance fee alone

    Bring on Cas.

    HOpefully we can start the improvement now the weather is getting better and follow this up with another win.

  11. Our discipline was terrible as it has been all season and has once again cost us so much field position and additional tackling to do. 

    I've now watched us lose 4 matches and all the 4 teams we've lost to I've though we could beat. 

    Hopefully as the season progresses Rowley can get this plenty count down as currently we are bottom of the table for conceding them and it's absolutely killing us.
