They should hold those meetings, you're right. If they did, I'm pretty sure they'd consist of you and about a dozen others (not having a pop, I'd probably be one of the others). And we'd learn the square root of fuck all from them like we used to from AGMs. But that doesn't mean you should just dismiss/ignore all the other good work they're doing in terms of genuinely engaging with the community, which is what matters far more to most fans. And no I'm not going to give you the list of all the stuff they've done this season again, go read back in all the other threads where you've moaned about "lack of engagement" and people have listed loads of examples you continue to ignore.

I've looked at the Community page on the official site...

They do have more options under the News section than we do.

New Premier League CEO has apparently been sacked before he's even started. Wonder if he'll get the £5m apiece whipround like Scudamore?

Macc players threaten strike action again.

Not looking good for them.

From yesterday, no news if it has indeed been paid yet or not.

Players at Macclesfield Town have issued an ultimatum to the club's owner that they will not train, or play on Saturday, if they are not paid wages they are owed by 18:00 GMT on Monday, BBC Sport understands.

Silkmen owner Amar Alkadhi told the BBC on Monday morning that arrangements for payments to players had been made.

A further update is expected from the League Two club on Monday afternoon.

Macclesfield are at home to Crewe Alexandra on Saturday.

The club's first team have already gone on strike over unpaid salaries this season, missing the FA Cup first-round tie at home against Kingstonian on 10 November.

The financially-stricken side lost 4-0 to the non-league outfit as the Silkmen fielded a team of youth players and loanees.

Macclesfield were subsequently charged with misconduct by the English Football League, and referred to a disciplinary panel after failing to pay their players on time.

A potential takeover of the Moss Rose club by local businessman Joe Sealey stalled last month.

Macclesfield also face another hearing for a winding-up petition on Wednesday, which was brought against the club by HM Revenue & Customs over a £180,000 unpaid tax debt.

The case has already been adjourned seven times, with club bosses telling the High Court on their most recent appearance on 20 November that the outstanding debt had been paid.

HMRC said the payment had not cleared.

There is something very fishy going on as there have been a number of legitimate bids from funded people to buy the club, but the owner will not sell, FL not helping for a bloody change.

More racist abuse in English football yesterday, this time incidents at Forest Green and Man City. TBF both clubs seem to have reacted swiftly to take action against the perpetrators, (although City need to have a look at their stewards who were stood right next to the moron but took no action) but racism is steadily creeping back into the game as a broader reflection of the way it has started to become more mainstream again in wider society. Neville and Redknapp are right on this, both about the hypocrisy of the English media calling out racism in Italian and Bulgarian football while stoking racism here, and about the wider societal problem coming right from the top

I dunno it took Forest Green 2 hours to publicly acknowledge it failing to mention the stoppage on their Twitter feed and no mention in their own match report. Itís only after about 2 hours of criticism on Twitter that they put out a statement, probably realised that they couldnít just hide from it. This is the 3rd incident involving them in a month with one of their players abusing a disabled Plymouth fan, the alleged Cooper comments about Justin Edinburgh and now this incident of racism. They are clearly a toxic club from the very top.

This is a very different incident from the previous two, which involved staff, this is one fan. We had 30-40 fans singing "Tommy Robinson" songs at away games last season, no statement from the club about that at all. Are we toxic? Don't think you can condemn an entire club on the basis of one idiot. If they had repeated instances of racism and did nothing about it, then you might have a point, but I think you're just jumping on a bit of a bandwagon there. The incidents at FGR, Man City, Yeovil and Southend earlier in the season are part of a pattern of racism in England, and so English football, rather than a problem specific to FGR

Highlights a trend doesnít it, poor behaviour by staff at the club showing that disabled and the dead arenít off limits and all of sudden fans follow suit with this. I donít believe in coincidences and this has all happened within a month of each other. Vince has long pedalled the Ďrest of football versus usí agenda so fans crossing the line is an inevitability.
