So, in the last week, the Sky funded Salford have signed James Wilson and drunk driver Darron Gibson, how can this be allowed on home gates of less than 2500?

Gary Neville is DEMANDING they make the playoffs. It’s time the EFL sorted this shambles out, but you know they won’t.

Peter Lim buys lots of shares in the club doesn't he?

Owners should be able to invest/bankroll a club as much as they like so long as it doesn't result in the club being saddled with any form of debt that might endanger the club. Who knows? One day it might be us with a mega rich owner with deep pockets?

We all know that Neville et al don’t actually care about Salford and use it as a way of brokering deals to invest in property across the city.

Let’s face it, it must get at Neville being ‘a manc’ and seeing scousers buying up precious investment opportunities and huge swathes of the city.

Fact is, Salford is a play thing much like many other things. Nobody actually cares about them in reality. If they went down aside from the BBC and sky who would go a bit flaccid, 99% of folk wouldn’t even bat an eyelid.

They’re a weird club that exploit rules but then only people who need to take that blame are the rule makers for allowing them to be flouted and exploited.

I don’t see it as any different from Crawley (a few years back), Fleetwood, FGR, Chelsea, Man City.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

The player contracts are debts in themselves. Unsustainable should the funding be pulled. I don't know how they are getting away with FFP but it can't be right, even if it is borderline within the rules.

Which goes back to my point of the rules being simplistic to manipulate or circumvent.

If they can be flounced and exploited, expect them to be flounced and exploited. Until the rules are genuinely robust this stuff will happen...

What is borderline within the rules for Christ's sakes?
The same as only just the right change from a tenner?
It's within the rules or it isn't.

If a "fish billionaire " came along and started throwing money at Town would your point of view change?

But do you believe it’s the right thing to do regardless of whether it’s within the rules?
