A lot of questions being asked about whether we are adhering to the Salary Cap.

Quite frankly... how dare they! (Sm6)

I know we are using the CVC money to purchase our players... but will our squad be sustainable under the Salary Cap?

Gotta love a "news" story that is "people say stupid stuff on twitter".

The 8 they highlight probably come in at an average of £250k-350k each and two of them can be marquee signings So they add £1.5m-2.1m. Take off what we're losing and you're probably up on last year by about a million. Can't imagine we were anywhere near the GP cap while we were in the Championship - although we were obviously comfortably north of all the other teams (possibly combined).

As far as the cash for them is concerned it's my understanding that we have a new backer (although no-one is saying who yet) rather than spending the CVC cash.

Thats very interesting... that would be a hell of an investor if they're willing to flash that sort of cash and actually have the hunger to sign some top quality players.

We do have an American investor onboard very recently within the last 3 months and I believe we are looking at the American market for investment.

Hadn't seen much of Mick Crossan lately. Is he still as involved as ever?

Done some digging and it may be associated with Nigel Northridge, who seems to have been a member of the Board a few years back and was appointed again in January as per Companies House.

He is chairman of the Hogg Robinson Group which was bought out by an American Express subsidiary last year.

Putting 2 and 2 together...?

That's what I wondered when Companies House sent out the notification of his appointment: The Club has been rather silent about it..

Rugbypass do write a lot of junk. I generally don't bother reading anything from them unless it's by Alex Shaw

I've been told there are 2 new investors, not 1 winking smiley and not Northridge.

Mick had heart surgery and took a while to get back on his feet but was on fine form at the Richmond game.

Thanks for update. Glad to hear Mick feeling better.

I saw & spoke to Mick Crossan as, right in front of us; he was denied access into the stand at Ealing just before the start of the cup final. He took it very well, even after I suggested that he tried the ďdo you not know who I am??!!Ē tactic.
Top fellah, even if he is a Chelsea supporter!
