According to the FT.
Sorry, I don't have a link, but in today's Financial Times, although not yet officially announced.
Apparently Alianz can keep their name there at the stadium, should they with to.

And in the Grauniad (you'll recognise the spelling if you're my age), RFU slashing the funding of the Championship, so don't know if that also hits the Sorries, as well as tho other Championship clubs, But it will have repercussions such as effective ring fencing of the Premiership, and surely unintended consequences. If this whole saga was in a novel you wouldn't believe it!

If I was in the Championship, I would set a budget of no more than £1.5M for clubs to stop the likes of Falcons & Sorries bouncing back, as the RFU fund massive drop payments.

Truely shocking what the blazers at the RFU are doing to Championship clubs, the grass roots should put a vote of no confidence in the RFU board.

Clears the way for the EAs to partner with VW> They could also put Lance Armstrong in charge of strength and conditioning

It's only a continuation of what the RFU have done to the National and lower league clubs I'm afraid. The grass roots clubs gave a vote of no confidence in the gin-soaked parasites years ago but they didn't take any notice at all.

I reckon it's an excellent opportunity for this company.

If the championship agree to a 2.5 million cap next season as is being suggested I would expect every team to stick to it (and yes bedlington if it was us I would still expect that as well). I know Sarries and honesty, integrity, humility are not comfortable bed mates but they will have to abide by it, after all they chose relegation over opening their books and giving their ill gotten trophies back.

Interesting to see how many of their “static London centric fans” stay with them. Suspect a major haemorrhage
Used to glory, never travel, my experience on several visits to AP was it is very much a corporate and “nouveau “ glory centric crowd.
If they are subject to a tiny salary cap in the championship they must surely disintegrate.
Much as I loath their management and feel their fans are new plastic trophy people, it’s sad to see a genuine old club go to ruins
Hoping they can come back into the fold but doubt it . No one wins

George states he will stay.......What for free? Some of the others turning a blind EYE STILL to their ill gains. Still pathetic, arrogant attitude. Hope they sink.

How would a championship salary cap work for a relegated premiership team?

The relegated club would be operating to a premiership budget and salary cap and will have contracts and commitments to players and staff. How could they adjust to the tune of -£5 million in a summer?

You could put relegation clauses in player contracts, i.e. a player could look for another club in the event of relegation or drop salary by 75% if they want to stay.

Doesn't help the situation for the next 2-3 years until current contracts are renewed. And no top player in their right mind would sign for Wasps or Leicester at the moment, if (ignoring Sarries for the moment) the club is fighting at the bottom of the table.

Ignoring people's desire to see Saracens suffer for evermore, there are practicalities that need working through.

More woes for Sarries


Saracens: Barnet Council considered ending £22.9m stadium redevelopment loan

Reading the report I wonder whether Barnett council wanted to pull the plug altogether, however a hold to give Sarries a chance to show their future plan is likely more effective, as the council can then say the conditions have changed from their original agreement thus allowing recovery of the 3 million already taken.
