I talk to a Macclesfield Town fan, finding out how they will do with a new manager in charge after Paul Ince’s departure.

Tell us a bit about your season last season firstly. Would you say it was a success or failure? Did you achieve anything throughout the season, and were the fans happy with the end result?

We were very happy with the end result after such an appalling start, overall though it was a disappointing league season. Bringing in Paul Ince was a gamble that paid off, the only achievement was playing Chelsea.

Obviously every close season sees players leave. Who left your club and were you happy with the decision to let those players go by your boss?

We lost our manager and we all feel very let down and used, as for the players the only disappointment was Murphy leaving.

So obviously, with players going out, some have got to come in. Who has come in for you, and do you expect them to do well? Tell us a bit about these lads?

We`ve made some pretty decent signings although up front we look very poor, Martin Gritton, Franny Green, Richard Edgehill, Terry Dunfield, Simon Dimech all signed.

Who are going to be your star players this season then? Who`s going to get the goals, and who`s going to stop them?

We will not have a prolific goalscorer this season although Danny Thomas has looked good in Pre-Season, also Dunfield looks excellent.

Season ticket sales help the club at the beginning of the season to stabilise the place and give it a bit of extra income. How many season tickets have your club shifted these season so far, and what do you expect the average attendance to be throughout the season?

We don`t have a massive support and will probably sell around 500ish season tickets, we hope our attendance will be around the 2,500 mark.

Tell us a bit about your gaffer and his backroom staff. Do the fans like the gaffer, or can you see him being out of a job after a run of bad results?

We have appointed Ian Brightwell and Asa Hartford, so far he seems good and the fans are happy with him. When the season starts we will get a better idea.

This question is split into two. What do you BELIEVE your club can achieve this season, and what do you HOPE your club can achieve this season?

We will hope for anywhere away from the bottom 2, we believe we are better than other teams in our position and hope for a comfortable season.

Finally, whom do you expect to win the division, who do you think will go up with them and who do you think will be relegated?

I believe Dagenham and Accrington will go down, Also Bradford, Peterborough, Chesterfield to go up, County will be strong this season, and I hope that MK Dons fail!

  • I think Ince did a good job last season but I think they will struggle again without him this season.
