Salford City: Ryan Giggs and ex-Man Utd pros agree takeover

Anyone any background on this - are they 'doing an Ebbsfleet'?
Interesting development.

Now THAT would be a feeder club!

  • Scholes, Giggs, Butt and the Neville brothers will be the owners of this Northern Premier league Div 1 North side if approved. Maybe Beckham has encouraged them, he is very good mates with Gary Neville. No need to spend any money on a manager or coaching staff, may even see the odd appearance from some of them :-0
  • Feeder club for becks new mls club. Get to spend a year abroad playing in England for the youngsters.
  • There's a 2 billion pound consortium that those guys are meant to representing and involved with to buy man utd from the glaziers

    Becks and co and the royal family of Quatar (spelling)

    No u in Qatar NLA.
  • Damn your answers are good
  • Looks like they are intent on blowing their money as quickly as they earned it.
  • Think you will be so so wrong.
    Doubt it cost very much.
    Their connection will push up crowds and attract young talented players.
    I can see them in the football league within 5 years.
  • And that's when the losses will get even bigger. The last thing they should want (financially) is promotion.

  • Do you think over on SalfordLife, or whatever their version of CharltonLife is, there are posters moaning about this takeover, knowing for sure that all their best talent will be sent to Old Trafford, and that they will be lumbered with Man U cast offs?
    Just a thought, like.
  • the takeover by the Neville Brothers, Butt, Scholes and Giggs has been approved

    Giggs would be better suited to managing Salford rather than Manchester United methinks. I guess that the chaps have big plans for the club. It helps that their 'partner' in the venture is a billionaire from the far east. He has just bought Valencia F C .. expect a few loan signings probably from the east coast of Spain to the dockside of Manchester
  • I don't think Paul Scholes should be allowed to manage Oldham while he's a shareholder of Salford.

    Why??

    10% or less is seen as an investment only.

    There are rules that no players can move between clubs.

    And If they play each other next season and 1 of them plays a weaker team I am sure the FA will look into it.

    As long as he's not a shareholder at Oldham then I can't see a problem.

    Eh? You're suggesting it's ok to be a shareholder of one club and the key employee of another; but he can't have shares in the same club he manages? 

    Or are you saying something else?

    Why? Simply because he may have an influence over two clubs in the same competitions next season. It's a dangerous precedent.

    I think he's saying he can't be a shareholder in both clubs, which the rules confirm.
