His legs have gone. He was a split second too late to the ball and in the tackle.

.. a little village in Herefordshire
My lasting memory of him playing for us was in the last game of our promotion season at home to Stevenage. We were comfortably winning in the 2nd half and everyone was in a party mood. The ball ended up in the paddock where a fan thought it would be a great laugh to control it and do some keepy uppys! .. McComack came running over to take the thrown in and screamed at the poor bloke “give me the f****** ball” in the angriest mood ever! 😂

Played well last night in controlling the middle of the pitch for Northampton.
Very disciplined in winning the ball and then passing it on accurately, so he didn’t have to carry the ball too much. Saved his legs for the final at Wembley, which may well be a very fitting end of career finale, or close to it.

Good to see him as committed as ever to pushing his team forward to the win!

Interesting to see that he was given betting odds to get a card, prior to the match. That reflects his continued commitment. In the end it was the player who came on as substitute for him, who got the card!

Never gave us less than 150%!!!

What did shine through was how blinkered some players are at that level to a simple pass or how direct the managers tactics are. Countless times he laid it off and offered himself as a simple option but the ball was then lumped forward. I dont miss that level of football at all.

In fairness, regardless of the scenario or the scoreline, anyone that tries to get a cheap laugh from the crowd by heading the ball back or doing something like keepy-ups deserves to be told they're a pillock.

He has the experience you want at a club to help the younger members of the squad ..and can still play a bit to..
The type that will go into coaching.

Looks like his reward is to be released
Hope he finds a club for as long as he wants to continue playing
Some reward ..... he'll want to play on, but then he is 36 & his game is one dimensional ..... maybe not conducive for L1 (?) - maybe another L2 team needs "bolstering" or he helps coach/assist younger players (?) - good luck to him though whatever his future brings

Not easy for him with clubs having to streamline.

He signed a 1 year contract and only played 15 games, he’s injury prone and 36 now, his release is no doubt not a surprise to him.

In the wrong
Or his choice to run down contract. Still living in Essex so back to Southend or maybe Colchester
How do you run down a one year contract?

I hope they last long enough to keep him employed for the rest of the season.

They got somebody else in yesterday as well. Didn’t realise that players could still be signed if up before the beak for debts/tax. Macclesfield owe £500k and get booted into the bin. Sarfend owe £499k and get time to pay...
Just saying like (I know Maccy have many previous...)

I wish him all the best, but I fear he maybe looking for another club before the season is out.

Its only a short term deal until January, so you could be right, although its just as likely he'll be manager/coach there before January!! they are in desperate straits and could well be non league or non existent as next stop.

Southend United midfielder has signed a contract extension.

The 37-year-old’s new deal runs until the end of the 2020/ 2021 season.
Good luck to him, always gave 100%, and will probably end up in a coaching role somewhere.

Loved Alan Mac.
When I finally cajoled my daughter to come to GP on a regular basis Alan was part of the attraction. She used to say ‘I just love Angry Man, he’s always so, er, angry.’
Wish him all the best and would love to see him back at BFC one day.
