Why is there nothing from our club.. Yet!!

Is it just me or is anyone else puzzled why Phil hasn't made some kind of announcement about yesterdays hearing?

Does he know something that we don't?

I would have thought he would be singing from the highest mountain right now. But.. not a word!!!

Seems a bit strange to me.

"Stevenage escaped a points deduction regarding the postponement of a game against Oldham"

Thats.....because we were found not-guilty? How on earth is that relevant!

Survival of the fittest would suggest that a shithouse like Macclesfield FC will struggle with avenues which involve paying money on time or even up front. Better call Saul??

It’s sad as it shows it’s more of a business than a sport. You get one particularly poor chairman even for a season and you risk losing your club forever.

Alkadhi‘dnt play by the essential rules - so no matter how terrible we were on the pitch - they had no place to be competing in that league whatever points they got.

We would all be pulling our hair out like Andy Worth too if Big Phil had gone all “bollocks in a crocodile’s mouth“ on us too - flirting with rule breaking and risking Boro as a club altogether.

Macclesfield fans should feel hard done by. The outgoing chairman is to blame though - not the EFL.

To be fair most of their fans know he is the problem. Blaming anyone else and hoping to stay up so he can continue to milk the EFL payments is missing the point.

Yet he would still probably pass the fit and proper persons test along with Steve Dale at Bury. Thats the main gripe with the EFL/football in general and it could be us with a dodgy owner next time.

Phil makes the case for it being ludicrous for the panel to decide not to deduct enough points on the basis it would result in relegation, but then seems to say the deduction would only be worthwhile if it was enough points to result in relegation. Sort of contradicts the first idea that you apply the deduction regardless of the consequences.

Not that bothered though.

It’s a pretty awful situation for Macclesfield and it’s best for us not to harp on about it in case it’s seen as gloating....

There’s been a twitter post confirming we’re in league two which is enough for me

We are staying classy. They've done a little post on social media to confirm League 2, job done.

At the end of the day, it's between Macc and the EFL, we are just bystanders.

There was a short and simple message that we’re staying up on Instagram yesterday. Managed to do it without shitting on Macclesfield or making out that our survival was of our own doing. PW will undoubtedly comment officially when he’s good and ready.

I’m sure Phil is currently toasting to the EFL with a glass of red as we speak. Might even be joined by some of the panel. Heck, G Wezzle is probably there taking the credit for the win at Cambridge which kept us up. What a party.

I think it’s a good thing. The Facebook generation of changing relationship status (is that still a thing) is just asking for trouble.

The statement will come and will mean more with the passing of time imo!

He'll know we've got away with one and I can't imagine shouting about it and dancing on Macclesfield's grave is the best look. Would expect some kind of statement nonetheless once we've had time to digest the impact.

I'm not saying he should be rubbing Macclesfield's face in it as no one should. But, I would have thought something on the website along the lines of...

Now we know we are still in League 2. We will carry on building for the new season.. More news to follow...

Something like that really :-)

Just an acknowledgement of the news. As it massively affects the club.
