Congratultaions Macclesfield
14 April, 2018 17:47
I just wanted to congratulate Macclesfield on becoming champions of the national league. They fully deserve the title and have proved they can hold there nerves under pressure. Now just the formality of going down to Eastleigh to get 3 points and have their victory parade. The fat lady is singing

it is not beyond wit that Macc might get just one more point or that we win all our remains games. Long odds but far from impossible

It looked as though Orient were the better side and certainly had a great chance to snatch it at the end!

yes, I thought orient were the better side and it was some heroic defensive blocking in the 89th min from the macc defence to prevent orient from getting what could have been a deserved winner. its not maccs title yet.

It will be theirs if we don't beat Dover on Tuesday.

If we beat Dover pressure is massively on them, it’s not done til it’s done, conceivably they could loose the last 2, how often do you see golfers, snooker players, teams get to within one and then fold.

If we beat Dover we are assured of a semi place and that leaves us free to take chances in the remaining games in pursuit of maximum points.We Would have no pressure. In contrast Maccs would go into the next game with considerable pressure. Following their win against us they have had no real pressure with a points cushion and Sutton falling away. Ofcourse they would remain favourites but a win on Tuesday could create the kind of anxiety where a team imploded

Macclesfield are not champions yet, and until they are it's still on smiling smiley.

Three games ago we knew we had to win seven out of seven. Three down four to go. Yes obviously it's a tough ask but we've risen to the task admirably.

Remember Macc have been unconvincing winners in a quarter of their games this season (either coming back from behind or getting the winner after the 85th minute. If we got our results like they did the negative brigade here would be saying we've blown it.

Keep the pressure on rovers.

Interesting to see if we rest players if we don't win Tuesday or keep the winning formula/ mentality.

The fat lady isn't singing, but she has her costume on and has done the vocal warm up exercises. Teams can falter in this position, If the positions were reversed how confident would we be? history tells us not very.

At 7 games to go I thought we would win all and Macc draw the last three so as MM philosophy of take each game as it comes we will see
Theirs to lose ours to win in a photo finish especially believable if we beat Dover
I think we must keep going with our best team to whatever end
Macclesfield will only deserve it if they get more points than us although Askey did a great job
The Daggers are still in it and may surprise Macclesfield if they have a chance of play offs on last day

Your mission Jim, if you decide to accept it, is to congratulate Tranmere on winning the championsship due to winning all their outstanding matches and Macclesfield getting no more than 2 points from theirs.

Queue lighting of match and the MO theme.....................(Sm80)

We had our chance and threw it away when we played them. Unlikey they will drop points that are needed. So I say well done to them, they deserve it they battled to the end.

Neither do I. Are Macc players reading this? Whilst there's a chance we can still push. Is the suggestion that because it's unlikely we can win we shouldn't try?

Tell you what - a win tonight and it won't seem as much of a statistical impossibility.

A draw tonight would just about keep us hanging in there, albeit by the thinnest of threads.

it neither unusual for a team, even at the top to lose two successive games and not that uncommon for any team to win the next four in succession.

The unusual thing would be for those events to come together to our advantage

I think that given the start of the season that we had and yet where we find ourselves now, that in itself is enough to worry any other team including Macc.

They're only human after all and if a result doesn't go their way then the nerves may show but if they hold it together then at least we gave them a chase that no-one (even i) thought was possible and why i'm proud of this set of lads this season regardless of where we finish.

Reverse psychology; lull them into a false sense of security.
As we approach the final furlong we are strong, like a Red Rum; let's hope they are brittle, sorry Crisp!
It ain't Dover yet!

Dover come into this game with more pressure than us. Even a defeat would still leave us with a realistic chance of a semi place. in contrast Dover really must win as they and Wrexham seem to have a mini competition to see which one can row backwards from a play off place

Row row row your team gently down the league,
Miss out on a playoff place, with cramp and mild fatigue.

Fair play to Macclesfield.

Stitched us up good and proper at PP in the crunch game and held their nerve.

We didn't deserve to go up automatically after that and we haven't.

Roll on the play-offs. Didn't have a good feeling last time against the scumbag FGR; time-wasting cheats who didn't even give us the ball back after we put it out when one of their mob got injured.

We lost Vaughan, Harris and Wallace in the last few games through injury and, if I had put my name forward, I reckon I could have made the subs bench at Wembley last year.

This time we go in there with a fully fit squad, bar Tollit but Cole is more than adequate.

Just hope Clarke and Wallace can make it out of intensive care to make the subs' bench.
