To Be Confirmed's Achievements



  1. Salford will be leasing it from the council. meaning they will be responsible for the ground etc but also allow them to benefit from the commercial streams that come with that
  2. Any move to Moor Lane would also open up much more potential commercial value to the club. They would in essence be the masters of their own destiny when it comes to F & B, Naming rights to the stands, naming rights to the stadium. potential to have a club shop on site. Any other users of the ground would in essence have to pay SRD rent. whilst from the outside looking in it may look a very bad move, however the more you look into the detail it could well prove to be a very good move for the club as a whole.
  3. Construction costs have increased yes but not massively which i why I indicated an increase of circa £10m. no where have i said it iwll have come down.
  4. Costs would be nowhere near £50m for a stadium similar to Saints. probably talking £35m at worst case
  5. Yep, in typical salford fashion the times when we have the slightest bit of success we are unable to maximise the potential due to COVID and BCD games a month into the season. TO make it worse the first time the club reached the Challenge cup final since the 68/ 69 season no fans were able to go and thus once again the club unable to maxmise this.
  6. the club have a development academy now run in conjunction with Eccles college, the club are currently looking at eventually turning this into a fully fledged CAT A Academy, we were refused 1 last time along with Leigh. we also have a womens team for net year with trials held a couple of weeks ago circa 60 people turned up for trials and the club have selected a squad from those who participated. club are also now setting up both LDRL and PDRL teams aswell as the obvious reserves. the link up we have developed with the welsh RL has already resulted in 3 lads getting into UCLAN doing degrees whilst continuing paying for the Salford reserves, again all done through the current Salford directors
  7. The club are currently looking at options around Moor Lane, they have also confirmed that Park and ride schemes would be used. Re TV cameras, cub have confirmed that a gantry would be built on top of one of the current stands, both confirmed at the fans forum.
  8. lets also not forget that the club have said that this move it it happens has to satisfy them, it may well be that the move is temporary for a couple of years to consolidate take stock and grow, the Commercial side of the club is growing massively and they are looking at growing commercial revenue 4 times what it has been for the last few years. lets wait and see what is said at the Fans Forum on the 4th before the salford bashing continues
  9. The stadium company is currently circa £30m in debt, how would an extra 200k per season for the last 10 years have prevented that level of debt? regardless how you want to wash it up any club who rents a stadium runs this risk, wealthier club comes in and instead of buying the stadium is actually purchasing the stadium company including all of its assets allowing the lease agreement to be amended to suit.
  10. Maybe so, however the club is now debt free by all intents and purposes, have a competitive squad, Rent was still an issue when Koukash was in charge and despite the millions he never paid the agreed rental figure either. He also didnt pay off the CVA whilst he was in charge. He did however sell a number of players in order to reduce the money that he had to put in, he abolished the academy because he didn't see the benefit of it. So the fact that we are in the early stages of developing an academy, we are engaging more in the community and have no large debts hanging over the clubs heads means yes they are on a much more stable trajectory, granted the move from the AJ Bell if far from ideal but the club will deal with it they will be in a position to generate much more income from Moor Lane and move forward
  11. no he is doing it to protect his club if they progress as there aspirations are to do. If they get promoted they have to move out of Moor Lane
  12. Gary Neville and Co arent capitalizing on the Rugby clubs predicament, Sale Sharks are looking at buying the stadium so they can generate much more from matchdays, Neville rightly knows that if they dont move now and buy the stadium with Sale and they get promoted they will have to move out of the city which they dont want. They have already confirmed that this move is coming to early for them but its either move now or risk moving out of the city.
  13. Koukash left at the end of 2017, the current Board of directors have since put the club on a far more stable trajectory. the signings that have been made are in most cases an improvement of those who have left. If the club do move to Moor lane then this will allow them to make the stadium work for themselves, the likes of sponsorship of the stadium will go to the club, F & B sales will go to the club, currently the only income that Salford get from match days is ticket sales. the club have come out and said that there obstacles that need to be overcome before any move takes place and the likes of parking etc are clearly some of those but none of them are insummountable.
