Man of the Match: Northampton Town (Home)

Saturday saw a day that Silkmen supporters will never forget as our beloved blues picked up our first three points of the season against Carlisle United. Three days later, it was a day that we will want to soon forget as Northampton Town claimed an emphatic 5-0 victory on a rainy night in Macclesfield. Before…

Ten things about Northampton!

 It breaks my heart to do this because I NEVER wanted to write this about a performance like this from a Silkmen team that two Silkmen legends in Danny and Neil are managing, but I am afraid I am going to have to! The team tonight provided us with an early Halloween nightmare because that was…

A View From The West: Tranmere Rovers (Away)

Ryan Cawley provides The Star Lane End with his thoughts following Friday night’s 1-0 defeat at Tranmere Rovers: Taylor – 8.5 – Superb performance from the Silkmen’s number 1. Kept Norwood out from a one on one. Needs to work on this kicking but to be dropped (again) after that would be criminal irrelevant of…

Ten things about Tranmere!
