Salford no longer have a money man to back them with Marwan’s departure and have the lowest crowds in Super League, they don’t own their stadium so have to pay rent on this. Their financial situation must be dire.

Salford already had the smallest squad in Super League, no reserve grade and no academy. They have since released Levy N'Zoungou, Luke Burgess, Lama Tasi, Weller Hauraki, Ryan Lannon and sold Craig Kopczak.

The only signing they have made is Jackson Hastings whose wages have been paid by former owner Marwan Koukash.

We’ve seen Featherstone and Leigh unable to field full teams in the Championship this year, if Salford hit some injuries they may be in the same boat but in Super League. Or worse still could the club collapse mid way through the season.

They've just made a big signing in Ken Sio so it's hard to say if they have any issues.

Salford play some good stuff and will be fine. Besides, the standard of SL is such that we're not too far away from a time when a semi-pro side could survive in it.
"The problem when you play Leeds is that they are a huge 'confidence' side. If you get on top of them, they will cower and go away, but when they get in front their chests puff out and they start whooping as they make tackles. " (Jon Wilkin)

Funny I find it far superior now to what it was ten years ago.

From a Salford POV it’s very worrying. Personally I can see them going down the Leigh route of administration and a points deduction. That said, Leigh would have a better chance of bouncing back as they have a decent backbone of support and a town that actually likes rugby league. For Salford I’m afraid this isn’t the case and I feel the writing is on the wall for them.

Why are you concerned Sir Kevin ? :lol:
Pointless topic started by an expansion lover.
Right now they are in Super League, and because it annoys you....I'm so glad that they are. :BLAH:

Nothing to write about expansion today pathetic Trolling it should be stopped.
Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry never fixes anything.

One likes people much better when they're battered down by a prodigious siege of misfortune than when they triumph.

To be fair kevs point is valid we average crowds of 8000 but our owners still put £500,000 a year in so how on earth will Salford survive with no sugar daddy
