Surely Salford are just an ego boost for the ex United players. They have no supporters.
Salford had an average home attendance this past season almost 50% higher than that of Aldershot. If they have "no supporters" where does that leave us?
There attendances fluctuated especially when United played at home on the same day.
They got around 1600/1700 on on those occasions and also bare in mind that this was a team in the top four playing reasonable football and scoring plenty of goals and entertaining !!!!
Not a side in the bottom four scoring less than one goal a game.
Fans pay to be entertained , hopefully we will be next season

Lanternhall may be confusing Salford City with FC United of Manchester.

Salford City have been around since the 1940’s so they’re not a new club :- https://salfordcityfc.co.uk/the-club/

AFCW and FCUM are both newly formed clubs, AFCW in 2002 :- https://www.afcwimbledon.co.uk/club/history/ and FCUM in 2005 :- http://www.fc-utd.co.uk/history.php

Heard a great quote from a tweet that was read out on Talksport .

"The romance of football: little Salford City, owned by a billionaire and six multi-millionaires, losing the thick end of £2m a year in England's FIFTH tier while paying players up to £200,000, winning promotion to the EFL. Underdog tales."

I know this comment is probably very naive but I think clubs should be made to show that they can sustain themselves without huge investment. Aldershot have genuine supporters. Salford have lots of money but no support and no history.
So a club which has gone bust twice in the last 30 years has shown themselves to be sustainable?

With a few million thrown at us I'm sure we would be....... Not too far off Forest Green either..

One of the 7 "Deadly Sins" is envy. There is a lot of this on here about Salford, but does it really help?

My old boss always had a saying that "we are where we are." We may not like this, but it is the truth, however unpalatable that may be.

I am fed up with football this season!!
The last paragraph has to be the understatement of all time!

So, the scenario is....a group of recently retired London-based Premier League players decide to buy up a local non-league club and choose Aldershot.

The fans’ reaction....no thanks, it wouldn’t be fair to our peers.

Not a chance!

In football, as in life, there will be rich and poor. Any one of us could win the lottery and become rich overnight but does that suddenly make us a fake or just the same person at heart but with lots of money? Salford were the club who won the football lottery.

I would have loved it to be us but it wasn’t. Am I envious? You bet.

Just wanted to add that the supporters I chatted to in the Crimea before the Salford home match were great and clearly loved their club as much as any other fan I’ve met from any other club. Hope those boys are enjoying the moment because in a few years it may well have all come to an end for them with some other club being the next Salford.

The amount of money required to get a club to steadily climb up the leagues, gets bigger every time, we are now getting into serious money, if the ambition is to go further up the leagues. It will be interesting to see where the owners will want to settle, due more out of finances than desire.
They are approaching the level where they will be just another club and like Wimbledon will settle into mediocrity with the will just to survive.
A lesson for them to learn, Aldershot with all their history are not given any favours, you have to pay your way.
Celebrity has a habit of diluting with age.

Supporting a football is ultimately pointless and needs to be kept in proportion..... anyone hear the Scouser on TalkSport crying his eyes out? What a wombat!

Lesson... even if you are Man Utd, some investors can pitch up across town and blow you away!!

This pair of plastic clubs could only muster 8049 last week for a place in the football league. Orient have already sold 23,000 for the tinpot (in comparison) trophy final on Sunday. I expect Fylde will be outnumbered by the neutrals.

Of that 8049 , 2000 Salford and 700 Fylde.
The rest sponsors, corporates and neutral

Could there be a chance Chertsey or Cray Valley out sell Fylde?
