IMG Does the club have a Plan? : Mon Sep 25, 2023 1:00 pm  
Yesterday was another depressing experience and today I still don't feel any better!

Now that the season has concluded and the dust has settled I now feel it would be a good step in engaging with the fans to provide some details of how the club is to go forward. We have already signed up to IMG regime. It must have some merit for the club to agreed. I for one would like some assurances on why they signed up for the IMG, and a statement on how the club plan to progress and prosper in the new IMG era. Do the club have a `Plan` going forward?

The club will not be using this forum to provide the answer to your questions so any comments on here won’t be official unless they are direct quotes coming from the club.

Options are looking back on what they have already said, waiting for future announcements or asking / contacting them directly at the next club / fans open meeting at the Shay.

It looks like the club is in a mess at the mo. Still very unhappy about the hike in admission by 15%, paying over 20 quid to watch lower tier RL is bonkers and won't attract new fans, if anything it'll lose existing fans.

For the first time in over 30 years I'm knocking a season ticket on the head and will just attend the meaningful games next season ...... I'm not paying over 20 quid to watch the likes of Whitehaven (unless of course they make some signings and become a contender). In fact you never know, we might shed some players and become a relegation candidate then Whitehaven will be a meaningful fixture! Is there relegation?

Not sure where all this IMG nonsense will take the sport, will there still be a top 6 play off next season but no promotion? RL is a shambles, no idea whether we're coming or going from one season to the next!

I’m don’t think IMG know what plans they have in place.

Unfortunately the club and directors are going around the same financial problems for the last 20 years. The business model trying to run the club at a place it doesnt own and trying to fork out 50k plus rent a year with no bar receipts and diminishing crowds is never going to add up . The club exists and has survived by the goodwill of individuals . Personally i think they need a fresh piece of paper that means they play at a local rugby club and have the means of running and benefiting from a bar and functions . Ovenden park for me could be an option as could heath old boys but its all down to if a deal could be brokered. I think the club needs to step back before it can ever go forward. Currently its running way above its means . Tough choices .

Connecting a few dots on IMG the club and stadia.

How come there is this rumour of a failed bid to buy the Shay by the current board at the same time when there’s a rumour that they haven’t get any money?

There's a big difference between buying something cheap you could potentially make millions on and pouring a couple of hundred grand away on bad debts..
See there's now a proposal to merge us with league one..

So did the current board try and buy the Shay and if so for how much?

I have no idea,I was speaking theoretically.

I mentioned last year about the rumour of a take over and them trying to buy the stadium. Obviously i got the people who were taking over wrong but there sounds like there could be some truth in them trying to buy the stadium. And as faxcar says if they can get hold of the sought money they would need to try and buy the stadium then they can not be as bad off financially as some may think.
