ParklifeSport took a look at some of the fan’s tweets following the sacking of former Cheltenham boss Mark Yates at Macclesfield.
Some fans were disappointed to see the former Robins and Birmingham City man depart Moss Rose.
Feel for Mark Yates, tough job in tough circumstances, no matter who it is that takes the Macclesfield hot seat, they will find it tough!! @BBCRMsport

Team selection seemed to be a problem…
Mark Yates wasn’t a bad guy. He made mistakes (leaving out Lowe, playing Smith over Bliss, random formation changes etc) but he only wanted a hard working team to win for Macclesfield. Imagine if we’d held out at Swindon.. 🔵⚪️

Bit of a fall guy really in all of this but made too many wrong decisions re team selection for him to keep his job. Irony is we have probably improved in the last three games. Let’s see if Danny and the Kaiser can sort us out and play some decent football

Others were glad to see a managerial change leave following the winless start to the season.
probably the nicest guy you’ll meet off a football pitch. Shame it couldn’t work out for him.

About time. Now appoint someone who can help secure our league 2 status and we can think about building and challenging again next year. pic.twitter.com/o89juOHdF2

Macclesfield fans are already looking for potential replacements…
Right so basically we need the safest pair of hands we can find. Having said that, and given how Chesterfield are doing, I have always liked Mad Dog Martin Allen.. wonder how long he’s got left.

Steve Bruce and Alan Pardew are available

ParkLifeSport Reaction: It was a tough decision that the Silkmen made however after 12 games without a win it was clear that they had to act before it is too late. Yates however will have a number of suitors in the National League following his successful run at Solihull Moors.
