H/T regards breaking even or making a profit I am surprised you have not looked on companies house and seen the latest accounts for the club without the bonus of Wembley / old Trafford and extra sky money it appears more clearer that the on field team have been disguising the off fields performance COYF
We made a small loss in 2018 of around £40k. It's near enough break even and far better than a lot of our rivals who are losing £150k+ a season (e.g. Wigan).

And it's a damn sight better than 10 years ago that's for sure!
they lost £1.4 million in 2018, the year they won the grand final and received the bateman money. thats on top of losses for previous years.

It's amazing we can be in the top 5 on a regular basis and keep making a profit with the corporate being relatively small. A new ground would mean marquee. We just need it to be built.

H/T I was pointing out your misleading statement regards the clubs finances
I hope we all support Castleford Tigers I do not get any comfort that our club did not lose as much as other clubs for any one to do so is a recipe for disaster in my opinion COYF

It isn't misleading. We have made a profit or have been break even for the past 5 or 6 years. Doesn't matter how we did it, the fact is we did it. And arguably with higher costs too.

2018 didn't see us make either final and we lost around £40k.

We can always do better but in the context of RL and sport in general, anything that is a profit or remotely near a profit is a decent result.

There are a number of areas we can improve significantly and digital is one of them.

I’d love to see a master plan spreadsheet/job tracker of areas In which folks feel the club are falling short and manage it through with some job/project software,

The then master database would make interesting reading, especially if it was all ignored :hand: :) :)

Anyone dare to estimate how much we currently have available on the cap as I sense a new signing soon.

HT?

If that was to happen what position, I think the side is lacking a strong no nonsense prop but where they can find that type of player is a big ask

Back up half back?
As has been mentioned elsewhere, I would like to see Jordan Lilley brought in.

Hard to estimate without knowing contract upgrades and changes.

Must have at least enough for a new player with Ellis going though.
