Surely mega rich players and former players and their agents could set up a fund and save this and other grassroots sides.
This is a one-off situation an opportunity to do something laudable which so far doesn't seem to have been taken.

Or they could let the club fail and then other ones which are better run can continue to succeed.

Nah, it's always easy to be generous with others people's money, You also need to consider conflict of interest which in football is huge. (Look at Newcastle's current problems, it's not as simple as just having the £££)

What have YOU kicked in BTW? You could take out a huge loan from the bank and buy the club? Your family could sell or remortgage their homes and put it all on the line? Maybe sell a kidney? After all, Macclesfield FC Is a well managed sure thing right? No possibility it's going to fall flat and suck all your money into a black hole whatsoever.

Sorry, I let my sarcasm get away from me. No, it's not a workable idea, if you're not willing to take the risk why would others?

Sadly their demise was not a surprise as they have been in difficulties for a long time. What I think we need is a different distribution of tv and other income in the game.
