    Warrington are done. Excellent, decided I wanted Leeds to win when I see half of facebook just crowing about Wigan not being there, truly hope they are crying now.

    http://www.london-gazette.co.uk/issues/60301/notices/1690816/recent=10;category=corp-insolvency-winding-up-court;subcategory=petitions-companies

    Super League club Salford City Reds are the subject of a winding-up petition, BBC Radio Manchester has learned.
    It has been presented by club sponsors and management consultants, Steuer Gregsson Limited, and will be heard in Manchester on 29 October.
    The Reds have appealed throughout the season for fresh investment, following their move to the Salford City Stadium at the start of the year.
    Salford have said the matter is "over a small amount of money".
    On their Facebook page, they commented: "It is being dealt with. The club have brought people in to sort it out and it will be."
    Salford have been forced to reject several claims throughout the past year that they have been on the verge of administration.
    An outstanding five-figure tax bill, owed to Revenue & Customs, was paid in April.

    Salford City Reds hoped to attract attendances of around 8,000 to home fixtures in 2012 - their final average gate was just under 5,500

    Earlier in the month, they had announced a groundshare with rugby union side Sale, with the Sharks playing their first competitive fixture there in August.
    Before moving from their former home at the Willows to their new £26m stadium in Barton at the start of the season, the Reds had stated that they needed to average around 8,000 fans for every home match at the Salford City Stadium.
    However they fell 2,500 short of that figure on average for their 12 home games in Super League, as well as the final match of the season, which was played at Leigh Sports Village because of a schedule clash with their new tenants.
    In his final programme notes of the season, following the fixture mix-up, Reds chairman John Wilkinson said everyone at the club would begin a "relentless" pursuit of success.
    "It is vitally important to the club and the city that it's only standard bearer has a solid base in Salford," he said in September.
    "We cannot become nomads, as this has fatally wounded other once great rugby league clubs.
    "It will not happen to Salford City Reds, not on my watch.
    "It is fair to say that this whole season has been something of a trial for staff, players and board alike.
    "My promise is that we will be better, we will work smarter and we will bring reward and satisfaction to you all [the fans]. That process begins now. Not tomorrow, not next week - right now - and it will be relentless.
    "Actions will speak louder than words here, and is our intent that our actions will grow to become deafening over the next few months and years."

    I and many other Salford fans are just not surprised by this.

    We have one week to find an investor or we go in to administration.

    I have heard many rumours today on a few potential buyers so here's hoping!

    I can't even be bothered with the next season yet. Rugby league regular season is depressing, it's completely pointless because it only matters in the last 4-5 weeks. They need to change it, maybe the top spot should get an automatic spot in the GF to make it worthwhile.

    The council have rejected giving Salford a 750k loan.

    That's terrible if true, but I think you might still survive.

    Shit if that new ground just goes to Sale.

    Sale are dogshit, they'll get relegated from the Premiership so it'd be daft them having a nice new ground. Should give it to Stockport County and let Sale keep their shit ground!

    I really hope we do survive but in the long run there are still going to be a major problems with Peel only wanting to take over on a temporary basis and have the fans run the club from next year..

    As for Sale with working at the ticket office I know how many free tickets they give away and its a fair few. If Sale got relegated it would be fucking hilarious and they wouldn't have a load to pay for the rent of the ground.

    Went to a fans meeting with the chairman tonight... If anything I'm more annoyed by the excuses and we have to somehow raise £600,000 by February. Neutral

    It's probably based on the fact that he had a good end to the season, coupled with the fact that he's never really been given a big award before. No way is he the most talented or useful player in the whole game.
