one of the many things that get me about Macc is that they are in a false position as a league team - they do not have the support base or the finances to sustain league football, and now chickens are coming home to roost. Not paying taxes, their manager and their players is a disgrace and a club like that does not deserve league football  - they are the authors of their own downfall because they spent money they have not got to get back into the football league.

In comparision, we are on a financially sound footing, and if we do get in a position to go for promotion to the Football League, which I believe we will, we have a growing fanbase and bags of potential to grow more and I think we would be fine.  As I have been saying for years - we are a bigger club than Macc and always have been.

Another thing i really hate about Macc is their mini 'firm' which comprises of about 3 40 something year old fat saddos who should know better, and about 20 15 to 17 year olds who can't hold their drink. I wonder how they are getting on steaming into the home fans bars at the likes of Grimsby, Swindon, Carlisle, Crewe, Bradford City and Plymouth.  I sm sure they are tearing it up every where they go  Grin Roll Eyes

What they didn't spot was that we got through three more rounds than they did....

Great sympathy with the players and staff who haven't received what's owed to them.

But anyone with an once of intelligence could see how this was going to play out from months ago. The EFL really needs to be held accountable for letting this run and run

I'm not sure how this is the leagues fault......this is down to the management of the club. Keeping your "head above water" whatever league you are playing in, is the most important aspect of the club.

As with Bury it's not the league's responsibility to run clubs properly, that is the boards concern.

The league has a duty to other members that each club can fulfil all their fxtures. Fixtures = income. That process seems a bit flimsy.

The League's fit and proper test is not fit for purpose. They needed to come down hard on Macclesfield's owner.

The problem is that the EFL doesn't currently have the powers to do that. To get them would require the majority of clubs to vote for the change. Its probably not in the interest of some clubs to do that. A lot of league clubs are in a perilous state.

Oldham fans were holding a protest before their game and an optional boycott
