Does anyone know when the final decision on Macclesfield's punishment will be made? My friend at work hates Stevenage with a passion and is desperate for them to be relegated.

Could be legal challenges being heard in private, but can't go on much longer.

Alternatively they have decided but await the National League vote on Monday.  If the National League vote to scrap the season, only Barrow go up to replace Bury and no other relegation from league 2

Think your mate will be disappointed. Reckon they will deduct more points from Macclesfield and they'll go down. Quite rightly as well, they've been taking the urine and are clearly insolvent.

If Macclesfield are relegated I can't see the National League accepting them.

I thought that the EFL had stated that no clubs will be relegated to the National League unless the N.L. confirm that next season will be started so there will be a place for the relegated team to play so if the N.L. will not accept Macclesfield then they may end up not being relegated and only one team (Barrow) come up.

My point was more to do with the National League having more of a backbone when it comes to financial problems.

I understand that, my point was that if the N.L. don't accept them they may not be relegated.

I think the NL jumped the gun a little but also, just had the balderdash to make a decision, unlike the EFL and PL that have just allowed this to drag on and then based their decision to play on entirely on financial decisions rather than for the good of the game and health of players and so forth.

It’s hard, in a points based system I have no doubt Stevenage would’ve gone down. They have been woeful all season but, Macclesfield have clearly flouted the rules, have loved beyond their means and have found themselves in serious financial trouble. It may be excrement for the fans (although I’m sure they enjoyed their promotion season, again, a season they clearly overspent in) but the EFL needs to grow a pair and enforce the punishment they have outlined in their rules.

I can see that being Stevenage’s saving grace...it’s a mess though and although Macclesfield isn’t a bad away day, I’m not sure anyone will be disappointed either will go.

The NL have a bigger decision around start dates, which naturally will impact the decision, but also we know the NL has a spine and won’t accept clubs in Macclesfield’s position so they could go down again...


'the poor and the needy are selfish and greedy'...well done Mozza
