    Macclesfield Town FC wound up

    What a sad, sad day. 😥

    One of my all time favourite away trips, Macclesfield. And whilst few in number, let us never forget that to a fan of the silkmen their club is just as precious as our club is to us. Just as precious as Liverpool FC are to their supporters, etc, etc.

    A club liquidated. A town and community loses its sporting focal point. All for debts which are less than what some footballers earn in a fortnight. Just let that fact sink in.

    Professional football will one day eat itself. Like the giant greedy monster it has become. The only question is how many clubs will have fallen by the wayside when it finally does.

    A very sad day for football. Unfortunately it won't be the last over the coming months

    Always had a soft spot for Macclesfield...real shame this but like some have already said, won't be the last one to go to the wall.

    Excellent and heartfelt summary GKW. I fear the domino effect the longer Covid-19 goes on. Even TV coverage which is the paymaster to the big boys looks sterile without fans. really sorry for the Macclesfield fans. Small club yes, but life and soul to supporters.

    Had to laugh when there were opinions that this covid-19 would change everything. Smaller wages and transfer fees. More even share of the tv money. Same old, same old.

    yes very sad
    I once took my cat to the Moss Rose and he watched the match sticking his head out from the top of my coat....until he fell to sleep

    The ironic thing is that there is a huge amount of wealth around Macc and Cheshire so it's a shame someone couldn't have stepped in.
    That's perhaps where the Neville Bros and N Butt should have ploughed their money into instead of Salford
