The RFL/SL have been more than supportive - last example was last season when 6 points were deducted for breaking the CVA in a season with no relegation.

If Salford have got 5000 signatures then they have enough 'fans' to buy the ground at the discounted rate it is on offer at and take control of their own destiny - remember this is a club that completely overspends and bounces from one disaster to the next.

Koukash rescued them, the council bailed them out and even those interventions didnt stop the CVA being broken

First thing I would offer is share packages at £1000, £5m raised min straight away

So Salford add nothing ? Which Million £ game is the most talked about, especially with non RL fans? Which cup final was the closest and most exciting in recent year? Which play off att

I think he's a bit busy right now

Maybe they could groundshare with Dewsbury?

Well should the worse case scenario happen and I think we have to assume and prepare for that,then yes Moor Lane is the ONLY option anywhere within the boundaries of Salford City Council.

BUT that stadium is not big enough for Super League. And as such it is my understanding that it is not Super League standard.

So what are the options for Salford then?

There is a lot of if, but's and maybe's in that story, more than a usual Sun story. Why would Salford City FC, move from Moor Lane, after all the money that has been spent on it, and just missing the play-offs, spend £4m on buying Gigg Lane, ditto Salford RLFC?

They had to spend the money to get the Moor Lane up to football league standards or no promotion from the conference  and they will have to spend more on the ground if they move up the  football pyramid  bottom line is what plans have the class of 92 got for the club and would  a move to the AjBell turn out  be cheaper in the long run

the Terms of the CVA were always there to say that in the event of default a points deduction of 6 points will be taken in the season where the default happened. Given this how exactly were the RFL supportive on this matter? the RFL literally followed the terms of a legal document, nothign to do with being supportive.

Salford want to remain in the city where it has been for over 100 years, the stadium that you claim is on a discounted offer is not in the city of Salford its in Bury.

Whilst Koukash did rescue the club in the short term he also put them back multiple years due to his management and input he received which was less that ideal, eg disbanding the Academy

Do you honestly think it’s that easy?

What rugby league in general and Salford  specifically are up against is reported in the BBC sport website.

Sale  have 11 South Africans on their squad and it's said that 6 are in contention  to play again st the Lions.

Just think about that, on several levels.  Of course this is not just for our game; RU is not of much consequence to us but it does indictate what way the future of RU is going, even if its own fans might be wary.

No no it’s really easy for Salford to get 5,000 people to pay a grand.

Yes, move to Kersal, that's where the fan base isn't.  That will be the death of Salford RL

Where were you last Thursday?

And if they do move to Moor Lane, and Swinton are refused planning permission,  that will show bias against the Lions.

But it's a share package.

Me neither.

Typical corner shop RL mentality, you sell at 1k some may take 100, 5m is achievable, especially as you own the asset not the club, let’s say pay 2% dividend for 5 years which works out very cheap for the RL club and better than you get leaving cash in a savings account

I mean, incidents were more than just rumours. 

Many moons ago I played a junior cricket fixture at Weaste C.C. which, from memory, was in the shadow of the North Stand. Judging from the extensive alterations vandals had made to the clubhouse, it maybe wasn`t the best part of town for Salford RL to be based in.

The only place more dangerous for Swinton fans to visit was the old ground at Huyton. (not so much a ground as a few blocks of randomly-strewn concrete).

In the interests of balance and candour, it should be acknowledged that Station Road could likewise be a bit of an adventure for Salford fans. Mercifully we didn`t play each other too often.

If it’s that easy to generate cash in RL who’s done it so far?

It’s just the corner shop mentality stopping it happening, clearly.

The history of Liverpool City RLFC (a good read btw, link below) makes that ground sound appalling, vandalism going on during the match and scallies running about on the pitch etc.

Salford don't have the money to buy any ground, I really can't see them buying Bury. The Doc is responsible for the CVA failing as he didn't make payments.

The whole thing is depressing, every year it seems there is some drama and it has been this way for the last 10 years.

That`s how I remember it. No fences or fuzz. Complete free-for-all. Amidst the blocks of concrete. Could have been directed by Stanley Kubrick.

After one of our games there, Geoff Fletcher helped us escape by chasing all the scallies back up into the housing estate.

You’re portraying something as dead easy. I’m only asking if it’s so easy you must have some example of it actually happening? Surely you have one?

I would start off via the ISA, who take financial pledges and when sufficient are made conclude the sale and issue shares  based upon cash invested eg £1k blocks. The ISA could then rent the running/maintenace etc of the stadium company to the club for £x pa - similar what the RFL did for Bradford but at mates  

Portsmouth FC became the largest fan-owned football club in England, after the Pompey Supporters Trust (PST) successfully gained possession of Fratton Park in April 2013. In May 2017, the PST members voted in favour to sell its ownership, estimated to be at £5.67 million.

Once an investor is found you either do as Pompey did or carry on securing your clubs ability to play locally
