    Macclesfield points deduction reduced from 6 to 4 points.

    You know when you are a kid and you play spoofs and lose the first round, you then say, best of three! Feels a bit like that. To take a football metaphor, the goalposts appear to be moving.

    Stickied League 1 Transfer Rumours/Confirmed Transfers 19/20

    We had a virtual Fans Forum at the weekend. Our CEO and owner both said they wanted a salary cap linked to revenue. However, they also said they wanted there to be other teams to play. What I took from this was a veiled sign that a lot of clubs are in serious trouble without a hard cap -...

    Fair play, the two commentators did see the funny side in the fact that they are staying in the same hotel as the Northampton players tonight!

    They now appear to be complaining that the Cobblers were not following social distancing guidelines when celebrating the third. Tinpot commentary.

    Those watching on TV, was the sending off correct? The commentators on BBC Radio Devon think not. Indeed, they believe there was an earlier foul against Northampton not given.

    I see that the players respected Theo Foley before the game started. In the 1970s when he was Manager of Charlton they used to do their training in Avery Hill Park, Eltham and then he used to come over to the other side of the park and take us for our games session. Bit weird being trained by...

    Coronavirus and League 2

    We had another online fans forum today with our owner, CEO and Ryan Lowe. A lot of the answers began with we are planning a number of scenarios, so they could not always give precise answers. However, some key points: - they are being led to believe that football is planning to start end of...

    Cheers. One of our IKN posters (he is close to 100 per cent right) said both us and Crewe have made an offer, that Crewe might be the more favoured as it is nearer to home.

    Managerial Merry-Go-Round 2018/19

    They obviously tried Lowe, and at one point he was the bookies clear favourite. Suspect we would have wanted a lot more than £120k for a manget who has got out of this division twice, and was on a three year contract.

    Stickied League 2 Transfer Rumours/Confirmed Transfers 2019/2020

    Sarcevic has confirmed he is leaving us, for family reasons. As he comes from Manchester, does not take a genius to work out where he is going. Shame, but I understand with young kids why he would make such a decision, and he may even get a better deal at Salford. He is certainly a player who...

    Athletic Article: League One and Two Seasons to be abandoned next week

    We’ll lose him at some point, but not to Notlob. Why go from a well run club with a loyal fan following in League 1, to one that is a basket case with no money in League 2?

    Yes. He is very personable. At the beginning of the season we had an Open Day based around a practice session. There was a long queue with about 1,000 people and he made the effort to go down the line saying hello to everyone. Derek Adams would never had done anything like that - he would...

    Coronavirus and League 2

    Lowe did an interview this week where he said the rumour is that the Leagues may start in September. Therefore, he is planning for training to start in mid-July, that there will be pre-season friendlies but no fans. He hopes that if the league does start in September that there will be some...

    It was Baker with a local ex-player sitting on scaffolding that did me in.

    My memory was that it was on about 11.30 on a Friday night, so I used to get home from the pub and watch it. It is hilarious. If you have not seen it try and find a copy on YouTube or wherever.

    Athletic Article: League One and Two Seasons to be abandoned next week

    Well, our first season back in league 1 recently we did not actually start playing until December. It felt like the players were taking a break from football.

    Whoever is first to develop a successful and scalable vaccine will get untold recognition - Nobel prizes, research funding in abundance, widespread recognition, probably access to a lot of wonga and maybe even get laid. The pressure to be first Is huge. Some scientists have egos, this could...
