Dare I say it but you have to feel sorry for Macc. Second bottom and belted 8-0 by West Ham. Just demonstrates how much they overachieved last season.

And Askey's not pulling up any trees at Shrews either.
You can just see the writing on the wall if Maccs are still looking for a win when they come here!

I don't dislike Macc, even though their title celebrations weren't very classy. They haven't adequately replaced departing players, their chairman seems a bit iffy and even at this stage of the season, don't rate their prospects of staying up. However, they're still capable of taking points off us...

I agree with Boz, aside from his final comment. They seem to have been shafted by their Chairman, who undermined Askey and allowed key players to leave.

I think with Askey in charge and the core of their title winning squad, they could have survived this season.

Their best hope is for Shrewsbury to sack Askey and Macclesfield to reinstate him. But this needs to happen soon so they can get more players in during the next transfer window. However, after what happened, would Askey or any decent manager want the job?

Mark Yates has gone. Hopefully this doesn't have a positive effect on their players for Friday!

From BBC: "The Silkmen are on the brink of equalling an all-time English league record for consecutive games without a victory - although their winless run spans seven years, dating back to when they were relegated in 2012.
Their barren sequence currently stands at 35 matches, which is just one short of Derby's winless run of 36 games between September 2007 and August 2008."
Well that pretty much guarantees us a defeat on Friday!
