Ten things about Crewe on Saturday!!

Wow. Now that was an ‘El Cheshico’ derby to savour and remember for a long time and just seeing the size of the crowd and the atmosphere generated by both sets of fans, makes you realise that the English Football League is where we need to be next season and beyond! The minutes applause in…

Ten things about Mansfield on Saturday!

1. If those who were not at Saturday’s game looked at the scoreline bearing in mind the respective league positions of the two teams; they would have understandably asserted that it was an expected and altogether routine win for the Stags next to top of the league against the Silkmen who are next to bottom…

Ten things about Cheltenham on Saturday!

First of all congratulations to Cheltenham who thoroughly deserved the three points on the balance of play. Whilst accepting that we were down to ten men for eighty odd minutes (there were ten minutes added on at the end of the first half for an injury to one of their players!), they simply wanted it…

Ten things about Oldham on Saturday!

Over the course of the last two weeks, we have now witnessed the best away performance of the season against Grimsby, and then just a week later the best home performance on Saturday against the Latics of Oldham. This is even more enjoyable to note when considering that they have been on a very decent…

Ten things about Grimsby on Saturday!!

First of all my sincere apologies for the delay in getting back to you on this one earlier. I could easily give you a plethora of corny excuses as to why I haven’t sorted this out before now, but the simple truth is that I simply haven’t got my derriere into gear I am afraid to…

Yesterday’s game against Swindon Town!

Firstly, I would like to say how surprised and disappointed I was that since the onset of the transfer window, there had been NO incoming players to a squad so decimated by injury. I have to be honest, and state that I fully expected Sol (Campbell) to have already lined up at least several players…

Let’s do it for Etch: An update!

Less than two weeks an article was published that encouraged people to donate towards a very worthwhile cause in supporting former loyal servant of the club, and all round nice guy Paul Etchells aka ‘Etch’ and his family to raise money on behalf of Clare Etchells who has several chronic and debilitating conditions that have…

Ten things about Tranmere Rovers on New Year’s Day!

First of all he admin team here at SLE would like to take this opportunity to wish each and everyone of our members and Silkmen fans across the World a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR and sincerely hope that the grown ups amongst you were not  nursing too severe a hang over during that tough fixture against local North…

Ten things about Carlisle United away!

Brunton Park is a ground that can best be described as ‘one of character.’ Much like places like Grimsby Town’s Blundell Park, it is a stadium that has most definitely seen better days, but  is one that you would much prefer travelling to than soulless ones such as Chester City’s Deva Stadium, because you can…

Ten things about Notts County away!

First of all another huge thank you to young Will McGinnis for his excellent chauffeuring to and from Notts County on Boxing Day. Notts County have a fabulous history as the oldest professional football league club, and one of the twelve founding members of the English Football League in 1888. Meadow Lane is certainly quite…

Ten things about Port Vale on Saturday!!

First of all a huge thank you to  everyone who contributed towards the very worthwhile cause that was in support of the Etchells family, and also to Steve Mundy, Andy Mellor, Helen Davidson & Julian Bramhall who worked so hard around the ground in encouraging people to donate. Because of work commitments over the weekend, PBJ…

Let’s do it for Etch!!

Paul Etchells (aka Etch) provided seventeen years devoted service to Macclesfield Town Football Club in his role as a doorman (initially) but then as a kit man for twelve years, where his friendly, hard working and dependable approach made him a hugely popular figure with players, management and fans alike until his retirement at the…
