Even when they won the National League title a few years back they were creaking and players were not getting paid - heading the same way as Bury and there are likely to be even more - Southend United ?

Should the football world bale them out ? there are enough big clubs out there paying astronomical wages to individual players.

Esther Rantzen was on Breakfast TV talking about the BBC and pointing out Gary Lineker is taking a £400,000 pay cut whilst pensioners over 75 no longer are entitled to a free TV licence - it's a similar situation down on 'the grass' - the Football League could surely band clubs into a preservation society to help out those in financial trouble - but there again I suppose some would abuse it - football stinks in reality - the only possible saviours are probably the fanbase of Macclesfield Town itself - and perhaps aided by supporters of other clubs - however they would have to find a way of standing on their own two feet eventually.

Macc have been in trouble financially for years , lets face it their fanbase is small , therefore income is low. Sol Campbell probably fleeced them ,if he ever got paid in full.
We are relatively sound financially , but that could change at any time this season.
I'm coming round to the idea of outside investors but they have to be the right people.
well said

Asking Premier league clubs to provide monies that can be used to pay players wages etc is fine for me. But that is just emergency help. Asking them to prop up clubs that basically mis-managed their way out of our league while we were trying to do it right is just plain wrong.
I don't care what prem players earn - good luck to them.

Point taken - and a very valid one.

You / we could theoretically hand money over to Macclesfield Town and Bury forever more - and it be squandered by mismanagement and a gambling policy of spend, spend, spend and hope we gain success - however, it's the grassroot fanbase that ultimately suffers - perhaps the League needs to have more control of clubs / their income and expenditure - they shouldn't have to in reality but the knock on effect for the rest of the league members is catastrophic - looks like we now have 2 free days over Christmas and the new year before a ball has even been kicked.

Happy Xmas and New Years Day to our players - no match therefore enjoy yourselves with your families boys! Might go some way to making up for the atrocities of some of the away day fixtures earlier in the season!!

In all seriousness though, got to feel for the Macclesfield fans who have fallen foul of an owner who hasn’t allegedly paid the bills.

Macclesfield wound up for the sake of half a peanut.
Technically, a quarter of a peanut, but then I had to resit maths at to get into Yale.

would they promote the loser of the play off finals, up the pyramid, doesnt seem right in a new season to have one team a week with no fixture?

Looking at this I cannot see any other club being promoted to fill the gap. I also don't see how Ebbsfleet could return as they have budgeted for NLS, the fixtures are out and, if they did gain a reprieve then it would leave NLS 2 teams short so a team from NLN would have to swop leagues. That is just a mess and impractical*


The downside is we don't have the money from the Christmas/New Year games but there will still be a question as to how many fans will be allowed into games anyway, so the loss may not be so bad. The upside is that not having those two things, squad wise, may be a real bonus. Including a Cup weekend there are SEVEN matches in December and that will take a toll on players. We will have over a week's rest before we play Stockport on the 28th; they will have played Alty on the 26th! We then have a break until 9th January when we play Woking at home.


I think the plus point outweighs the loss of the fixtures looking at it; of course, if we are bobbing around in lower mid table it won't matter at all.


**We have seen how the NL act; they will probably do everything I have said they shouldn't!
