The artificial economic bubble bursting surrounding football and the grossly inflated sums exchanging hands will no doubt change the face of football for many years to come.

Do they have any decent wingers?

Anyway, back to the matter in hand. Sad day for the football world


Macclesfield Town Football Club has been wound up in the High Court over debts totalling more than £500,000.

Judge Sebastian Prentis made a winding-up order during a hearing in the Insolvency and Companies Court after being told £190,000 was owed in tax.
In addition, a solicitor for John Askey said the former Macclesfield manager was owed £173,000 and a financial lender was also owed the same sum.

The club's owner Amar Alkadhi had asked for a further eight-week adjournment.

The petition, which had been adjourned for a 12th time last week, began in January 2019 and was scheduled to be heard again on Wednesday after Alkadhi claimed that a sale to Robert Benwell was at an advanced stage.

Benwell, who previously tried to buy Bury, was not mentioned in court on Wednesday by Alkadhi's lawyer, who asked for a further eight weeks to allow a sale to go through.

The court was told that Alkadhi had made a late offer to pay an initial £20,000 of the debt owed to HM Revenue & Customs and had made available a screenshot of a bank statement with £1.1m of funds to show that creditors could be paid.

However, Judge Prentis said he would grant a compulsory order having seen no evidence of the club's ability to pay its debts and said that Benwell had also not provided a business plan for the club should he take over.

So essentially a club has gone to the wall for the equivalent of two weeks wages for Paul f**king Pogba?

Not Pogba's fault of course, but surely the game as a whole needs to have a good hard look at itself.

Bust.
Breaking news. Been wound up by high court

went up there in sams reign on the rhonnda ugly bus just before xmas and we stopped outside macclesfield in a pub that was doing xmas dinners amongst other food . two of the lads went around the back of the pub and into the kitchen and stole two large turkeys that hadent long been cooked and we devoured them between us on the way to the ground. thinking back i think it was our over exuberant playful antics like that that made every other football club dislike us with a passion. :fedup:

having now moved on from those times of being a naughty forty into a sanatised 60 i suppose i should be having pangs of guilt about incidents like that but strangely enough i dont so feck them :warnock:
