Silencing the Blues’ boos
JOHN Askey has put the call out for supporters to stick with his young team, and recognise how well they’ve performed in the season’s early stages.
While he was marginally disappointred by only getting a point from Saturday’s home game with Kidderminster, one of the division’s more-fancied teams, he was left scratching his head by a minority of supporters jeering the Silkmen.
Askey admits that it was Macc’s fourth unbeaten game and that perceptions and expectations change with such runs, but he’s calling on those at the Moss Rose to do their bit and ‘back Macc’.
“People have got to realise that when they’re criticising us for not getting the ball down and playing,” he said.
“Do they realise what we’re up against? We’re getting players who we can’t pay money to and God knows what some of the players we’re up against are on.
“You pay your money and you can come and shout and do what you want.
“I can’t complain if they turn up, they’re paying my wages, but I think they just need to realise that if they can get behind them a little bit more it makes a big difference. We’ve all got to stick together.”
