Macclesfield

Postby excessbee » August 15th, 2019, 11:47 am

Have parted company with Sol Campbell. I suppose he wants some guarantee that there will be a regular pay cheque coming through. Also, after a relatively 'successful' outcome last year, perhaps he feels another offer of work won't be long coming.

The same day six recent former players were revealed to be behind a winding up petition over unpaid wages. I wonder if Campbell was also going without at the same time.

Coupled with the Bury situation, it's possible that there will be no teams relegated from League 2 this season.

Apparently Campbell hadn't been paid in 4 months

I don't many could blame him if the club hasn't been paying him or his players properly for months.

Someone in League 1 or 2 will probably sack their Manager within the next few weeks and Campbell would be a decent candidate for any job at either level based on what he achieved in 8 months under the circumstances he had to operate.

Considering the poor start to the season Macclesfield had, Campbell did a creditable job keeping them up. The decision to part ways has been described as ‘mutual’. Seems somewhat unlikely.

It's like when your girlfriend dumps you. She tells you it's over and you have no option but to agree.

Not that I've ever been dumped of course. And if you believe that you'll believe anything. :grin:

Having had the pleasure of our directors' company at Macclesfield last season, I wonder what the Macclesfield owners will do without use of the 10 or so pictures of Sol Campbell which had bizarrely sprung up which were propped against the walls in their directors' catering area (I hesitate to say Boardroom, I think that was across the room).

That guy has some ego.
