I've just seen this on the Star Lane End website!!

"As a team, we would like to make people aware that we have not been paid our January wages.
Whilst this is alarming what disappoints us most, is that we were not notified by the owner or the Chairman of the situation and have not been contacted since.
All despite numerous attempts for clarity from the players and management.
It has been well publicised that we have one of, if not the smallest budgets in the division and yet despite this, we are top of the National League.
Throughout this season the team, management and staff have always and will always be 100% committed to the hard work and endeavour of gaining promotion to the Football League."

We need to get this to viral. We need exposure and one of the big social media accounts to get on this. Nobody will know about it unless we spread the word online.

I have noticed that AA has been present at recent home games. Surely he must realise as the majority shareholder/owner that he has the responsibility to ensure that all employees get paid on time?
I did wonder why such a generous offer was being made to generate a players fund. It must be to bridge a cash flow problem.
Why were we signing thee new players if we cannot afford to pay anyone?

This needs sorting asap. We can only hope there's been a genuine admin error and it will be resolved tomorrow but I'm not holding my breath.

Whoís to blame for this? Why hasnít the Chairman told the players whatís happening?

This is typical, we are going to mess up any promotion chance. Standard from our unprofessional club.

The communication to the fans is absolutely shocking and now this? The clubís own staff and players not being kept in the loop. Itís amateurish, itís unacceptable.

Maybe the 6-0 defeat at Fylde was the players way of protesting about not being paid?

Embarrassing on every level. With this kind of owner and some of the money flying round non-league itís a miracle weíre not marrooned in the bottom four. Only Sir Johnís ability to find players year on year keeps this clubs head above water.

Shambolic from AA and Blower... Need to stick their hands in their pocket, get on the mic in the centre circle on matchday and make a public apology in front of the playing squad and 1400 regulars. Neither have the minerals for that though, all we ever get is these written statements with cryptic suggestions/promises that are utter b0llocks

I hope by now the immediate problem has been resolved. For fans the best reaction is for everyone to get behind the team and ensure a bumper crowd against Guisley.
If ever there was a time for a fans forum it is now.
Unity is strength.

It's beyond belief but let's face it with the current Owners and their total ineptness way of running the club nothing surprises me, wasn't their a similar thing Last season?

What's worrying is the unrest it causes,its a distraction we don't need so I'm saying it needs addressing now, the lack of communication and lack of clarity at the club I know causes us fans concern.

Us fans need to rally around the team as usual,back Jon's plea for support and we win lose or draw together, show the team we fully behind them and fingers crossed it hasn't already derailed our promotion bid.

Amar/chairman please ask yourselves why you would want to create this situation? Some simple reassurances and communication would be all that's needed, no one at this club is expecting miracles and were very grounded lot, we do deserve the club to be transparent when it comes to commutation. So please sort this out.

An absolute disgrace.This needs sorting immediately and I second PB's call for an immediate fans forum. It would be heartbreaking if having assembled a squad capable of pushing for promotion, everything went down the pan because the club ends up going into administration and has 10 points deducted.

Firstly, you do not know when they get paid. I am paid on the 15th of every month, so not everyone is paid at the END of a month. The player may have been skint for a while now.
Secondly, I cannot believe we are top of the league, due to the hard work of the players and coaches and yet MTFC cr@p on them.
This must be sorted immediately and a public apology made to the players by those responsible.

£350 per player seems a conservative estimate.

The current minimum wage for over 25s is £7.50 per hour (rising to £7.83 in April 2018).

I know they don't work 40 hours, but, on this basis, players could earn £300 for 5 days of shelf stacking, or burger flipping.

The players have signed contracts which the club are now in reach of no wonder they have kept the campaign fund open they are treating players and loyal fans as nobodies I suppose we will get the usual lame duck excuses the players deserve so much more respect heads should roll

"In a statement, squad members and coaching staff said they had not heard from chairman Mark Blower or the owners regarding the wages issue."

This is very very poor. Where is Mr Blower, someone who claims cares about out club greatly...

Where is AA's statement on this? Someone else who claims to care about our club.. BS.

There is a huge disconnect between the clubs and the fans and it seems to be now to with the players too. These 2 groups ARE the club.

The Club are great at communicating when they want the fans money, well enough is enough.
