EFL charge Macclesfield Town with misconduct following unpaid wages 19:12 - Nov 14 with 1033 viewsTimTtam

They can't afford to pay their players. So the EFL has fined them.

That will happen in the near future.

What I mean in the first post is that the EFL have watched the club fall into a heap like Bury & Bolton and done nothing to prevent it from getting this bad. How is adding fines on top of a shortage in cash going to help them?

What should EFL do though? Financially support them?

The root problem is that imo there are too many clubs in England to support. Outside the big clubs, all fighting for same small pot of money re sponsors etc.

FFP breaches have for the most part been light punishments, nothing on the scale of Saracens in egg chasing.

The other question I'd have is why should a sporting authority help clubs? Breach FFP, fail to pay, then that club should be punished. Help them and you've instantly got every other club who abided by rules pointing out they did it without EFL helping them...

I'd like to seeless clubs at pro level, indeed some merging.

It’s not new though.

They had payment problems in their promotion season, problems last season, apparently don’t have a training ground etc. Etc. Winding up order over unpaid tax and allegations regarding the running of the club set out in a petition that supporters started today.

After the Bury backlash I suspect the EFL would be loathe to kick them out as it may lead to too many people asking wtf is the EFL doing.

Good idea about merging, you lot and Newport, but Newport play the better football.

Perhaps the EFL should act like the highly paid organisation they are and prevent clubs getting into this situation in the first place. The writing was on the wall years ago regarding clubs like Bournemouth, Portsmouth etc. The authorities have sat back and done heehaw to prevent it happening again.

Exactly, but the stock answer is leave our legal team to deal with it, morally bankrupt club with no scruples.

The EFL needs to remove owners that are not fit for purpose. They have relevant rules and guidelines, but they refuse to use them. How many sh!t owners are there around? Newcastle, Swansea, Hull, Bury*, Oldham, Macclesfield & Walsall just to name a few.
* Will be liquidated in December

The breaches surrounding FFP and sales of grounds are totally warranted. I actually agree with the EFL deducting the 12 points from Bolton. But it's owners like Steve Dale who slowly and publicly destroy clubs that is the problem.

Our neighbours could merge with their rivals the Wurzels and play their home games in the middle of the Severn Estuary.

Newcastles owner has backed managers without spending squillions they don't have. Hardly a sh1t owner.

As ever depends on the definition of a sh1t owner.

The emperor was a sh1t owner to start with his red shirt nonsense but seems to be being more sensible now.

With Ashley it’s his relationship with the fans what he says to them how he behaves etc. Etc.

Our owners have no relationship with the fans and don’t give a flying one about the area.

Then you go to the owners of Bury, Bolton, Macclesfield and you start moving to a different level.

The first line is spot on, take our Yanks, they are criticised for not spending but there is an argument they have stabilised us financially and we are still competitive. Whether it's more by luck than judgement is the question but they haven't ruined us like other owners have ruined so many other clubs.

I still say chasing the elusive EPL dream is causing several clubs problems.

Wednesday have been punished and other clubs have been investigated for breaching rules, yet more clubs will be in trouble for their spending this season, I'm thinking Stoke are one? The imaginative way some clubs have raised money to try and stay within FFP rules has bitten back on a few of them.

I agree there are too many clubs but maybe we should allow natural conditions to thin them out whilst the EFL tighten up rules, make rules that actually protect clubs.

Just my opinion, but WTF do I know anyway?

I guess that's going to be the risk when we eventually get new owners. I'd say at least a slight majority of fans would want them replaced (including myself), but there's the risk that we get a leech like the Bury & Macc owners or like the former Bolton, Blackpool, or Notts County owners.

The EFL are not fit for purpose, and I almost think they WANT certain clubs to fail. I followed the Bury and Bolton sagas very closely, and the incompetence by the EFL is mind-numbing. They gave Bolton a loan to help them avoid liquidation, but left Bury to die. There were also some instances where the EFL Twitter account would make sly references to Bury in their generic posts (I would show evidence if I could remember specifically what it was they said).

They'll come down hard on Sheff. Wednesday. I wouldn't be surprised it the penalty is more than the standard 12 points. They love making an example of one particular club only, but letting others get away with things. They aren't the only club to sell their ground to their owner. Meanwhile I fully expect no other clubs to be punished. Not even Stoke.

The above also applies to the scum. If they don't pay up, the EFL will go at them hard.

Can't the EFL invoke a transfer embargo?

I know FIFA are predominantly involved, but I assumed the EFL would be the ones handing down the punishment.

Whats with the merging nonsense?

At the end of the day Clubs should only pay wage levels that they can afford and if that means £75 a week part time then that's what you pay your players.

And if another team down the road can afford to pay £200 a week then presumably they might well attract slightly better players and overtake another team in the league structures.

Come what may there's no need to merge anything, clubs just find their level in whatever division / league and survive due to adhering to a sensible affordable and achievable budget based on income from gate / social club/ sponsor / benefactor / advertising money.

Its not really rocket science is it?

Macclesfield v Crewe has been called off by the players due to emotional and mental stress. Players' wages are still delayed. Now Sol Campbell says the club owes him 182,000 as well. Winding up petition has been postponed for an 8th time I believe.

With this impending misconduct charge on top of the old misconduct charge, they can expect two 3-point deductions at a minimum.

Poor b@stards...
