For me the North starts when you enter Yorkshire and when you leave North Yorkshire then the rest is Scotland....

Just as well you weren't routefinding for Capt. Cook Tonto:)

Their players as well were shocking that day. Celebrated like they had won the World Cup at full time in what was a nothing game for them. Absolutely no sympathy from me whatsoever. 

So Stevenage stay up, having amassed three victories all season. Surely this is some sort of record for a league which normally relegates two teams?

I reckon that could be Macclesfield finished as a Football Club and I haven’t forgotten the day they sent us down so no love lost from they can go under for me.

Maybe that should rephrased as "True North", then we get rid of those counties who are confused as to whether they are East Midlands or not. Above Yorkshire on the map who cares....

Shame we cannot do anything about those to the west of us...

Missed opportunity in 1461, after the Battle of Towton. 

A very interesting piece of history and mostly overlooked. I live not far from Tadcaster and one of the nice country walks is around the old battlefield, although you would not know it now. Not sure of the exact number but I think more soldiers died in that battle than in any other battle in history in the UK.

There is a "God" case indeed, as it is often referred to as God's County. When I was still a boy and at school, there was an annual debating contest and one year the subject was "The Case for Yorkshire Independence". That was over 50 years ago so although times have changed, opinions have not changed much:D

I have next to no time for Macclesfield personally. 

Every time we play away they try to cram us down the side of the pitch with a crap view - twice in the past ten years our fans have simply pushed their way into the empty stand behind the goal as our away support was too big for the 200 or so seats they gave us.

Add in to the way they sent us down a few years ago - and celebrated like they had won the world cup, on top of the time their local bellends tipped up at the end of a game on bikes with planks of wood to attack town fans, well yeah, screw them. 

A pathetic away support too for a team only an hours away.

The EFL is a bit of a joke, to have Stevenage finish bottom with 3 wins and not get relegated is crazy. If not for financial problems Macc would have been comfortably mid-table. Not to say that they shouldn’t be punished for breaking the rules, as they absolutely should, but there is no consistency being applied. Some of the teams in the Championship were facing financial problems with covid and from what I’ve seen some are having deductions applied at the end of this season and some at the start of next - why? I saw for one of the Championship clubs it was dependent on where they finished in the table - if they’d finished in the relegation zone it would be applied next season and if they finished above the drop it would be applied this season, thus relegating them. That just doesn’t seem fair to me, whoever the club is. Have a rule and apply it consistently when it’s broken.

It's to stop teams going into administration when they are already relegated. If already relegated, accepting the points deduction makes no difference, and they effectively avoid any punishment. Can''t remember who it was, but one team went into administration just 5 minutes before their last game ended (when they were getting walloped and relegation was certain) to use up the points deduction and start the next season with a clean record.

As someone who’s lived in the south now for a while this always comes across as properly bonkers.

Anytime anything happens, there’s some bloke shouting at the sky that refs/the FA/national league “always favour Southern clubs”

A victim complex that makes no sense when it comes to football.

Typical Southern shandy drinker victim complex response

I'd forgotten that Sol Campbell was there for eight months last year, during which time their results improved to save them from relegation. Seeing as (according to Sol) they short-changed him to the tune of £182.000, did they really deserve to stay up then? Just delayed their fate by 12 months.

What is intetesting is if Sol is being truthful, that means he was on at least £5K a week if that is what is owed for 8 months work - and that is assuming they never paid him a single penny whilst he was there. 

If that is anywhere near accurate then Macc’s spending is ridiclous and they deserve everything coming to them.
