Just as bad as their immediate neighbours. Feel for any other team trying to get out of the National League this season as they're essentially playing for one promotion spot now.

The bad feeling will increase. To my mind they're as soulless as MK Dons.

So in the unlikely event a group of former Town players buy us out, invest heavily in the team and take us to the Premier League you would hate us too? Or is it because it is former Man. Utd players you don't like it?

It’s all fun and games till they become bored and Salford will fall faster than water. £4,000 a week at that level is ridiculous. I think even when Brodie went for £250,000 he was on £1.5-£2k a week. Imagine Rooney would of commanded a big transfer fee as he was playing quite regularly for Aberdeen. Their wage bills must be absolutely huge I wonder where it would rank amongst lower league one budgets.

Exactly. I am thoroughly drunk off with the constant messages knocking all clubs in general and Salford in particular that are throwing cash about and signing expensive players. Also fed up with all those criticising the Premier League

It is nothing more than pure jealousy, if it happened at Town everyone would (or certainly should) be delighted after all we are swift to complain if the manager doesn't get a decent transfer budget

Good luck to them, they have ambition (sadly lacking at many clubs especially our own) to build a club that is going places, of course they happen to have the cash which makes a big difference and we don't.

Envy is a terrible thing.

Frankly I hope they urine the conference, look forward to testing ourselves against them (hopefully in Div 4!)

Was thinking the same myself. Money has always talked in football, it's just that now, it isn't secret brown envelopes being handed to players behind closed doors.

Is this any different to Arab oil Sheikh's pumping billions into Man City, a team that was going nowhere for years? It may well rankle with some, but it has always happened in one form or another, and will continue to happen. Like it or not, there is a massive amount of money now in football.

No it's not. And for the record I also think that stinks too.

Why?

Why do we seem to take such pleasure in being on our arses cashwise and dislike any other clubs who aren't

Does being the poor run down old club make us better than everyone else, why are we so proud of it?
