Once again you have to feel sorry for the loyal fan base, while asking YET once more what, if anything, the FA are doing to ensure that clubs are run by 'fit and proper persons'. I'm not sure the FA, the EFL or even the Premiership themselves are being run by fit and proper persons - but who monitors the monitors?

It’s the VAR ref who monitors the monitors.

BBC
"Crisis-hit Macclesfield Town suffered an FA Cup first-round upset at the hands of seventh-tier side Kingstonian as the Silkmen's first-team players continued a strike over unpaid salaries.

League Two Macclesfield fielded five loanees and six youth team players and were outplayed by the Isthmian Premier Division side as home fans staged protests against the club's owners".

Umm Good to see the FA (&EFL) aren't devaluing the FA Cup Further.So thats two byes in R1 then! Cant wait for the Mid week 5th round!

BBC
"Macclesfield offered little going forward as they were eliminated at the first round stage of the FA Cup for the third consecutive season, with Kingstonian taking £36,000 in prize money for progressing."

The players striking for the FA cup means a possible £36K missed out by the club which just might have paid some of their unpaid wages.
Turkeys voting for Xmas possibly ?

Are you blaming the players for taking action over not getting paid?

"Are you blaming the players for taking action over not getting paid?"

Er ... NO ..as you well know!

Just think a a 'threat to strike' in the FA cup (gaining publicity) but retracted at last minute (for the integrity of the competition), followed by an actual strike in the EFL a week later, if no wages forthcoming, may have possibly benefited them better.

Who Knows the FA may have insisted the £36K (had they won) went to players wages .... but then again its is the FA!

Now seems the players were NOT insured to play in the FAC (and still not!) which is why they withdrew their services. If correct we can't blame them. Sad state of affairs.

So clearly not Turkeys voting for Xmas as I presumed, but they are clearly getting stuffed by the club it would seem ?
Paxo anyone?

Meanwhile....at long last the EFL are to investigate this fiasco - BBC https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50389723

Macclesfield have until 16:00 GMT on Wednesday to satisfy the EFL's request for information, with the threat of beginning disciplinary proceedings "if matters cannot be resolved". In that eventuality, an independent disciplinary commission could impose financial or sporting sanctions.

Expect more dither from the EfL.

I love the EFL are just crossing their fingers for the Joe Sealey takeover and then pray he's not another wrong 'un. So laughably impotent as an organisation.

As well I know? I was asking a question, no need to go all defensive.

Points to consider:

- £36k won't go very far.
- Points deductions for forfeiting fixtures are potentially more harmful to the club in the long run.
- This situation has been going on for ages. Unpaid wages and money mismanagement were the main reason for Sol Campbell leaving in the summer.

If it was used for that and wasn't siphoned off elsewhere. If you'd been unpaid for months work you wouldn't trust it to come your way would you?

By which time Joe Sealeys offer (if true) would have had time to be considered by the current owner.

Must be very hard for the players, who I have great sympathy with, to know what to do for the best.

Again lack of any action by EFL at the end of last season hasn't helped!

Hindsight is a wonderful thing in deciding who is a fit a proper person. How is anyone supposed to guess in advance whether they are or not? Things change that cause these issues.

Was Max Griggs a fit and proper person to own Rushden after what happened to them?

If Phil Wallace decided he was bored of pouring money into us, couldn't find a new buyer who'd do the same and so we ended up in the shit was Phil a fit and proper person?

Rarely is it that black and white in advance whether an owner should own a club or not.
