PostSubject: Fylde v Salford   Fylde v Salford EmptyThu May 09, 2019 10:32 am

So I'm bored in work, had a look at the teams coming up from the conference (or whatever it is now).

Orient up as champs fair enough.

But look who will be joining them! Fylde or Salford. I mean Christ, this is our level now  cheers

I can just imagine us finishing 15th in the league whilst Salford piss it. The usual calls of 'we can't possibly compete with the likes of Salford' and 'be grateful we still have a club' etc ringing though the usual channels.

Depressing isn't it....

I hope its Fylde then some people might realise just how crap we are and how low we have fallen. Some of the names being mentioned on PASOTI as next manager are laughable. An ambitious League 1 club might have attracted some of the names but we are going to be a basement club with a half decent stadium for the league. Whooptyfuckingdo.

Someone else mentioned the season ticket early bird extension which must mean that only the fans with more money than sense have renewed for next season so far. I can only imagine a new managers announcement is imminent and the club are hoping this will bring a flood of renewals.

I reckon if we were playing either of those teams on Saturday we would lose.

This is why they ought to have released early bird prices actually, ya know, early. If we were 12th or whatever in March, a big chunk of fans would have signed up straight away out of habit.

Thing is if we stack our squad full of "good league 2 players" like we know we will, it's going to be at least another partial or full rebuild and any squad coming up to lge 2 will have a settled squad used to winning matches. I'll be amazed if we piss the league next season.

like we pissed it the year relegation to the conference went down to the last game of the season. A long miserable 7 years I predict sustainable Argo will spend in L2.  Pioneer anyone?

Both financially doped though - particularly Salford. Their owners have more money than some Premier League owners. Peter Lim alone has a net worth of £2.4 BILLION.

If past form is anything to go by they'll at least try and pay for players at a much higher level, if they can find a way around FFP. There's even more incentive for them to continue obliterating the budgets of their rivals if they have four places to aim at. I'd expect them to finish above both of us, no matter who owned our clubs.

The attendance today is an utter farce though and shows how pernicious financial doping is.

Looking forward to their programme editorial.

Thanks to the £20m naming rights deal we look forward to the manager obliterating his rivals

yep Jibba jabba, who needs Peter Lim, Gazza Neville, and their money when you can have top owners like Jimmy and Tash.

You really shouldn't be holding up the Class of 92/Peter Lim Property Development Empire as an example.

I suspect Salford are trying to do an RB Leipzig - given the fact EPL riches are predicted to become even more eye-watering, spending vast sums trying to reach the promised land probably looks a decent gamble. If their plan works, it will be highly dangerous for everyone - especially those of you who dream of a rich owner to take you to the EPL. You should object to what they're doping as much as anyone.

If you're a billionaire looking for a Trojan Horse to take you to the top table and you see Salford do it, what lessons are you going to learn? That you should get involved with an established club with lots of baggage and a fanbase large enough to be awkward, to raise objections and give you grief if they feel disrespected, or that it's far easier in the long-term to buy a NL no-hoper - a blank slate where the couple of hundred existing fans can be told to like whatever you choose to do or eff off, because there will be more than enough plastics to replace them once the club starts shooting up the leagues and so "f**k tradition"? After all the latter is exactly what happened to Salford when the hardcore quit in disgust. Their fanbase hasn't so much grown as been replaced.

The whole circus is a kind of FC Franchise MKII  scenario - and one that is even worse than MK Dons in some ways. After all they only shafted one club and steps were take to prevent a recurrence - Salford's model could undermine a host of lower League clubs in the long-term while the media and starry-eyed EPL followers praise them for doing it.

""I'm bitterly disappointed to admit that we lost a number of regular supporters following the Class of 92's takeover. The reasons cited for this varied from "It's no longer non-league football", "We've changed our colours from tangerine to red", "I'm not watching a team managed by Manchester United players", "We've lost our identity" , "We're going to be a Manchester United feeder team" and so on.

I was vehemently against the colour change and made my position clear in no uncertain terms but we're no Cardiff City. Meaning that we didn't have enough numbers to mount large scale protests.....

It does disappoint me that we've lost some of our more 'passionate' fans as they were also some of the more vocal supporters that made for a great atmosphere at Moor lane which is certainly nowhere as good as it has been in recent seasons."

The sadly predictable level of Jizz is being spilt over the trip which will last right up until they consult a map and see where the ground is.

The Peninsula Stadium is in a non descript residential just off the Bury new road, about as far north as you can be in Salford before you 're in Bury.

Salford Quays and MCR city centre are a 15-20 minute taxi ride. Its not on the metro link, its nowhere near a railway station and the nearest pub is over a mile away.

Jabba nails exactly what is wrong with th Salford model.

In an area overflowing with clubs at all levels of the pyramid the one chosen for the vanity project is the one that stuggled to get three figure crowds, bumbling along quite contently in and around the NPL level. Meanwhile, just five miles up the road Bury rock from one crisis to another while nearby Bolton are crashing with no end in sight. They're probably too far gone for any sane person to take an interest now. Slightly further out are Oldham resplendent with their own financial woes and Macclesfield have been slow paying staff players for the last few months. On top of that, the team created as the protest to all things Manchester Utd seems to not only have plateaued but is now craching back down, mired in political in-fighting and a big hole in the accounts. Salford seems like a massive two-fingers to all those other clubs in the Greater Manchester area.

I thought I heard a stat recently saying that the three leagues below the EPL had the highest number of fans through the turnstiles since 1959, which is pretty amazing if true, but ultimately there really is only a finite number of fans to go around. Fans that will ultimately by nicked form Bury, Oldham and the others while Salford rise up.

They are no more special than Forest Green, Fleetwood and Rushden and Diamonds before them, whatever the media tell us otherwise.

This certainly makes interesting reading about how much of a money pit the club is.
Even with all of their multimillionaire benefactors they still feel the need to apply for a grant from the stadia improvement fund.

Beggars belief doesnt it. We're at the arse end of the country and have nowhere near league standard souting network. You'd think it would be crucial

Even when things were good we only had John James and wholly reliant on a network of hints and tips. Considering how well loved Adams is within the game its no wonder the level of dross that we've had to endure in a Green Shirt
