Far too sensible a view point.
People don’t like facts, they like an angry rant because he played for Macc 7 years ago.
Forget his time at other league clubs!

He was replying to a post in which I clearly said I didn't care about his time at Macclesfield.

Comment wasn’t aimed at you then... I was merely commenting on how much I liked his post

I think the general point some are making is a fair one - in that we were perhaps expecting 3-4 better, automatic first team players to arrive this summer and at the moment we've only got the one, Amoo, and it's debatable if he's better than Monty. 

I share that disappointment and thought we'd see a few more established new players in our first XI. 

It would be good to see if we can get Cullen in the side alongside Pope but our midfield isn't strong enough to do that, particularly with Oyeleke out. If we had the likes of Griffith and Grant there we could probably play with two strikers but not with Conlon and Worrall as midfielders.  

Plenty of time yet to strengthen but fans are fickle and have been battered from pillar to post in the past three seasons.

Embarrassing now this is. What is our scouting team doing? It literally is has he played for macc at some time? Yes. Sign him then. Not one of these ex macc players is in the starting 11 and are all back up (probably not particularly good) and we just keep overloading the squad with them. Be lovely if we actually tried to sign a first team player and someone who could heaven forbid improve us! 

Your embarrassing...7 (Seven) years ago he played on loan at Macc,he had a career after that,for Christ sake.

Close the club. The only person who has done well out of the club in recent years is Smurfwaite. Extorted loads of money out of the Shanahans, who have saved us, but we are left with a club struggling to survive.

It makes sense for us to sign a lot of ex-Macclesfield players for a number of reasons:

 1) Of course, the manager used to manage them in a successful side so he knows them, they know him and they've had success together before.

2) Macclesfield are local, so the players will be local.

3) Macclesfield have had huge financial problems, so are a good club to easily pick players from

4) The budget is quite poor, so we need to sign players as cost effectively as possible.

Yes if his signings aren't making the team and results are poor then Askey will rightly be criticised, but the logic is there for the huge Macc connection.

Yeah it’s fine let’s just keep signing ex macc players. Don’t care if it’s 7 years ago or not the others weren’t 7 years ago. And there’s one think they all seem to have in common.... they’re not good enough for our first team.

Better than overloading the squad with premiership loaners with absolutely no experience though.

It’s exactly the same. None of them will play just as none of the loan players played. At least with them there loan wages were covered.

Close the club? 

Struggling to survive?

2 points and yet to lose having played two of the division favourites!

4,000 season tickets sold.

Do you think you might just be being a bit over dramatic?

How did he play at Macc? Was he any good?

How did he play in his 39 games at Peterborough in the championship? A move he earned after playing at Macc?

What did he add to Notts county the year they finished 5th?

the Answer is you don’t know, all you have done is seen he used to play for Macc and started moaning your balls off. 

We get it, we Have over indexed on Macc players. But Wrex’s post explain we’ll why that’s happened and why it makes sense.

To just use the Macc label to bash the club and player without understanding anything about him or what he could bring is just lazy and blinkered.

Ok... name a first team player you would have signed on Ryan Lloyd’s wages.

If you pay peanuts you get monkeys.

Is Lloyd good enough to play in the first team?

Durrell is.

Bennett has scored. Already better than Quigley, Harris, Elliott in the leaguegoal charts.....

Only one of those was on loan and Bennett hasn’t played for macc so no idea what your point is?

I am saying that we have a better squad than last season.

It’s extremely similar. Filled with back up players who won’t play. Other than amoo no new players start. Cullen and Bennett have been used a bit of the bench. It’s very similar and like last season it’s hard to actually comment on half of these squad players because they never get on the pitch

Name a player you would have signed on lloyds wages.

You are clever enough (I hope) to understand a budget.

Bennett is better than Quigley... we wouldn’t have got him unless we balance the budget by signing cheaper players like Lloyd.

what about that don’t you agree with?

You sound more and more like Ernie every time you post.
