It looks like they overspent their budget last year expecting better attendances in League 2. Now they're struggling to survive. All too common a problem in our division.

I know he's entitled to it but he's hardly skint.

£18k a month seems a bit extravagant for Macclesfield! (Not that they ever paid him by the sound of it)

It's rather unusual what Sol is doing. He doesn't get any priority with his claim by becoming a supporting creditor to the winding up petition but he does get the right to attend the winding up hearing and make representations to the court. Obviously he feels very hard done by and wants to kick the Club while it is down. Macclesfield going into liquidation would sort out that relegation place.

I would have thought a big chunk of the 180k is a bonus for keeping them up.

I had heard he paid for their travel to get them to matches several times and various other things just to keep the club going. It wouldn't take long to run up 180k if that was true.

According to their former commercial director 50k of it is and Bumble is right some of the rest isn't actually wages but things he paid for on his cards and was supposed to be reimbursed as expenses.

The word is that they're totally [censored] and short of the owner finding someone to buy it and clear the debt they will go under. And at that point their assets come into play and i think thats SC.s motivation.

Somebody is allegedly trying to buy the club, he was on a Talksport this morning. He says the current owner is impossible to deal with and has asked him to put £500k in a holding account. The potential buyer said he’s willing to do this but wants guarantees as it will cost him £40k to do so.

Jim White has interviewed the current owner but he wouldn’t let him broadcast it.

Well that wouldn't be very good if Macclesfield went under for them and for us because we would lose three points.

In that scenario it wouldn't really matter as I would guess that there would be no team going down.

It would be us Stevenage and Morecambe battling to avoid the wooden spoon of finishing bottom.

Oldhams owner is another of those self-important arse holes who thinks he can come over here from god know where and think he knows more than people who've been watching their club for 30 40 or 50 years.

One of the best adverts going for fan ownership Shame when they are a club whos fans could easily put way more a year in than he is if they just got their act together.

I can see his point about the money.

He pumps the money in and saves them from relegation meaning the club is more of a sellable asset, I wouldn't like someone else to then come in with a clean slate using my money to achieve it.

Not like Sol is a Macclesfield supporter but he did save them and should be paid the money owed to him for doing so, it is hardly like they got relegated and he is chasing his money which would look far worse as he would be wanting to be rewarded for failure but at the end of the day the money is still owed to him regardless.

Under this method Pressley walks away with money for complete failure and Sol gets bugger all for success.

Any half-decent solicitor working for a new owner will get this overturned

The precedent was set with Bolton whos points deduction was suspended

We might as well stop trying to win games and concentrate on grassing other clubs up and then getting Nixon to dock them points to ensure our safety.

Unless they can sort out some safety issues today I'd say the suspended deduction and a further deduction could be incoming as their game v Plymouth tomorrow is currently in doubt

I’m not usually one for hoping teams are kicked out of the league, but times are hard after Steven Pressley’s 10 months of team/squad destruction, so them getting the boot or a further points deduction would be seriously welcome to us with our football league status currently at risk. I would be able to relax a bit watching the woeful team Pressley has left knowing that no matter how shit we are we won’t be going down this season.

Don't want them , or any other club to go out of business.
Once it gets to the stage where fixtures are being cancelled, though, it would seem unfair if someone else gets relegated and they don't.

A load of bollocks the FL seem to have decided that they want to reduce the number of clubs.

It's just a repeat of what went on at Workington when these SAG safety clowns turn up on a Friday lunchtime with a bloody great long list of nothing things that have to be done in 10 minutes or they will issue a nil attendance certificate. Let's hope they are one of the bunches of useless [censored] that Boris shows the door to.

Macclesfield's ground hasn't changed in 10 years so how the hell was it fit to use last week but isn't today? I .ll tell you why because that bunch of arseholes will have turned up demanding immediate view of certificates we used to get it when I had the pubs. Not physically being able to produce a piece of paper clearly doesn't make a ground any less safe than it was the week before and no reason earth they cant be given 14 days to physically produce the piece of paper.

But I smell the stench of FL involvement here they've clearly got some sort of agenda going on they're supposed to protect their members not conspire with some bunch of council jobsworths to persecute and close them down.

And anyone like that shit Phillips on the Radio who thinks it would be clever to stay up because the FL effectively expelled one of their members really need to take a good look at themselves.

Southend were already in the clart before he went there, just like Macclesfield were.

I reckon Sol thought that he had the magic touch and could pull the same trick off again, unfortunately for him League One is a massive step up from League Two.

Another club in crisis would be hard to judge him on, I would say that he will get a crack at another club perhaps League in Two but I would imagine Sol's ego will tell him that he has done his apprenticeship and it is his turn for a Championship or Premier League role.

And there's now a growing clamour in Bury to approach several high worth individuals who earlier offered cash should someone decide to take it legal but the status of the entity and Dales continued ownership of it could still be the sticking point but if the guy whos willing to buy the shell could get it and the money men fund the legals they.ll have a good chance of starting next season in league two [ they're talking about engaging the legal team who Valerie Belokon got to rip that hole in Owen Oystons arse.] and if they were to win and get awarded damages against the league taking into account the monies the league withheld from them as well it could come to 10 million Enough to sort out all of the debts and if the council got on board probably buy Gigg Lane as well.

Interesting times I can't see the relegation places being decided on the last day of the season.
