The Crazy gang go to Lincoln today with old boy Gary Simpson touted as a contender for the job by Jove! But then football, so blurs the line between fact and fiction does it not?

Simmo himself feels he is a third of the way through a job few in football would take on, given the budget. Yet in reality even fewer could have pulled off what he has in as shorter time. No this young up and coming manager is set for great things at the Moss you feel and plans are afoot for a fundraiser to build bridges with local businesses to fund our towns proud institution.

Mindful of the big man ahead of todays fixture, for the figure of Keith Alexander will always loom large of matches between these two sides, the links between the two sides are everywhere. Indeed the number of ex Imps wearing Macc colours toady, even with Simmos rebuild, beggars belief. So perhaps the hopes and minds may be forever entwined, but the destiny you would have to feel is not.

This moves us onto the spear of destiny, fashioned by Simmo a lad from the steel City, a bold 4-3-2-1 formation that has vexed many a home side this season as the Silkmen stormed to third in the away charts and 16th overall, after a tough start.

Simmo however kept the faith and built a crazy gang spirit despite a small budget, injuries to key players and young and unproven, yet mouldable prodigal sons. No one knows talent like Gary Simson, the perfect man at the perfect time for Macclesfield.

Gary Simpson is his own man, always with Keith in his heart, but one who looks forward with common sense, charisma and clarity, suggesting he is an Imp no more.
