Macclesfield Town have been wound-up for owing around £500k. That’s about a week’s wage for a top Prem player. I know they’ve been badly run but it was always a friendly place to go with decent fans and even better pies.

Shame really as am sure the wealth of clubs in proximity to them (and bury) could’ve helped out at some point, but I suppose there’s so much controversy surrounded by it. It’s a shame, because as you say, some great memories there.

Just a shame it couldn’t have been Stevenage

Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

Why do you think other clubs should have to pay for somebody else's mismanagement?

When you see how badly (financially) some clubs are run it makes you appreciate Mr Fenty a bit more for running a tight ship.

What I mean is the £Bn’s that is thrown about in the premiership, it’s bad seeing any club food. Especially when it’s down to poor management or whatever you want to call it at the top

Southend's next court date is 28th October.  They are nearly £500,000 in debt too.  Could be going the same way.

Other clubs' downfall shouldn't be used as a yardstick for our success, yes there are other clubs that have been run worse than us, but there also those that have been run better than us. Very sad that Macc have gone under but it should not been seen as a positive for GTFC.

The question you should be asking is have we grown as a club under John Fenty's leadership? (the answer is zero progression only regression)

Another way of putting your statement would be to say thank god I wasn't bathed by Ian Huntley while being baby sat by Michael Jackson.

Meanwhile Gareth Bale is on £600k a week and spends most weekends on the golf course.
