I'm already looking forward to giving Mr Fenty a celebratory lift on the pitch on April 25 (exactly 11 years since the last one, coincidentally)

Quoted from buckstown
I think those in charge will genuinely be praying for Macclesfield to go belly up to save us this season. I might be completely wrong but I suspect JF enjoyed our time in the conference, being a big fish in a small pond, Wembley appearances etc. etc. and probably saw it as a success.
I do hope he maintains his stance of only selling the club to the right people, because the thought of Mr. Dodds and his cohorts taking over really sends a chill down my spine


You are correct imho...he did enjoy the time down there and thought the Wembley trips signified success yet it was his abject failure that put us in a place we should never have gone down to in the first place....
Remember those rallying calls of "be there or be blue Square"...well once again " it's another drama that will lead to Vanarama" thanks to one mans incompetence in running a football club and treatng it like his pet toy...

Quoted from TownSNAFU5
We could get better or worse.

We can be above the next 2 teams that we play at home.  IF we win our games in hand.  We also (surprisingly) have a better GD than both Crawley and Salford.

We have to start scoring soon.

On the other hand we could continue in the wilderness, rudderless, alienating more fans.

My biggest concern is next season.  Without money for a clear-out and new players, we could struggle again, This season is very similar to when Luton had 17 points deducted and saved us. We did not heed the warning.


Can I just edit that slightly...:

I really don’t know why we talk about this anymore. Nothing has changed at this football club since 2005. The same people doing the same stuff in the same way.

I’ve said it before but the funny thing is they expect a different result.

Every senior member of staff at this football club that includes the board, have to be held to account.

Doubt it

More than likely waiting for 12th night when legend has it there’ll be three wise men on the horizon bearing gifts for the messiah

There’ll be certain someone rubbing his hands if they do come up with the goods....

Their view of “something positive” is an insert in the programme.

Quoted from Freemoash88
1) Haven't Won a game since September and  now 4 places above the drop
2) Sacked Jolley
3) We've still not appointed a Manager
4) Get beaten at home by PH with a very poor Scunthorpe Team.
5) Fenty kicks off with a gobby fan.

Surely the next step is to have a fans forum get Matt Dean down and watch it all kick off?

Can't believe how far our Club has gone backwards since we got promoted and all the feel good factor has been ripped out of the club. All the togetherness we had during our non league days seems like a distant memory.

I really can't blame any investor coming in because our club is in a total mess.


I agree with most of that, but I am not sure the "togetherness" in non league is what I remember. Six years of a living hell, being ashamed of this great club being given the run around by clubs I had never heard of, and playing Guiseley on a park pitch on a Tuesday night away, and pleased we got a draw is what I remember.

I remember saying at the time that the spell in  non league would wake Fenty up, that he will know he has to invest, or rather get more inward investment into the club to ensure we did not struggle again. As with everything else though, the board did nothing material to improve our chances of being competitive even in division 4. Just when it was going quite well, in the first season back, we managed to lose the manager that had just got us up to a smaller club with horrendous on-field problems.

And here we are again a few years later; same position, same problems, same stadium, same apathy just with different players occupying the shirts.

Agreed. People remember the last 2 games of Conference football and think it was all sunshine and roses. Think back to the last non league game at BP - it was fucking shite!

I have to admit that when I walked out of BP soooo despondent after that 1-0 loss to Braintree, I wondered if we'd ever get back in the league ( and half expected Hurst to be on his way for "failing" yet again )

Those next two games changed all that of course but why the board are now resting on their laurels defies any logic....

Still the powers that be know best don't they....we're just keyboard warriors aren't we?
