    Pre-season star and upcoming talent

    So we’re now into week 4 of pre season and we’ve all had chance to play some friendlies…From what you’ve seen/heard so far: 1. Who’s impressed you the most and you expect to be star player this season? 2. Also any youngsters coming through that you expect to make an impact this season? For...

    Exeter City vs James McKeown

    Last season Grimsby came away with all 3 points from SJP and James McKeown put in one of the best goal keeping performances we’ve seen in years, so I am hoping he won’t be in similar form this time around. To make things even more enjoyable we have the fat tub of lard, Brett Huxtable refereeing...

    Newport vs Exeter

    Tough game for us and I will be delighted if we’re still unbeaten come 5pm on Saturday. Newport fans must be delighted that Flynn is staying, as are we re Taylor so it’s a chance for both managers to show just how good their teams are. We’ve struggled at Rodney Parade the last two seasons and I...

    Exeter City vs Macclesfield Town

    Can’t believe the new season is here already, but I am really looking forward to this opening fixture. It looks, on paper, like a home banker. Macc are in a bit of turmoil and we’re looking solid and have made some decent signings. However, I’d be amazed if we steamroll Macclesfield and come...

    Questions re League 2 in 19/20

    So, with less than 1 month till the season starts, I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on the following questions heading into 19/20.... Key player - Signing you’re most excited about - The player you expect to step up this season - Fixture you’re most looking forward to - Who will go...

    ECFC v PVFC

    Not much excitement for this one. Despite our play off fate being in our own hands it feels like we’re on a bit of a downer following Tuesday’s loss. Vale have improved lately and are always a threat with Pope and Whitfield. I’m hearing Oyeleke is out isn’t he? That can only be a good...

    Westcountry derby - Cheltenham vs Exeter

    Other than Yeovil this is our closest away trip, just a mere 110 miles away. Think we’ve sold our initial allocation so will be travelling in good numbers. I just hope we can reward the fans with a good performance and a result. Last week’s debacle really shocked me as we looked so far short of...

    Playoff dress rehearsal? Exeter vs Mansfield

    So, with the mighty Mansfield faltering a bit of late and slipping out of the top 3, and now that we’ve gotten our act together this could be a prelude to the play off semi final in May.... However, a win for us would keep our faint top 3 hopes alive as we have a game in hand although we’d need...

    Flag burning derby - Exeter v Colchester

    Hard to believe we had a bit of needle with Colchester back in the 90s which started with fans fighting at Layer Road, one of our flags being stolen and set alight, and then our old club bar being smashed up in the return game at SJP. Those were the days... Onto 2019 and this is a big game for...

    2pm KO WTF??! Northampton v Exeter

    Anyone know why this game’s kicking off at 2pm? Pretty annoying. Anyway, hopefully we can bounce back from Saturday’s defeat but will need to be a whole lot better. Fingers crossed a few key players will be back starting and we can get a positive result. Was impressed with Northampton earlier...

    Exeter vs Tranmere

    Need to win today to atone for the last second equaliser on Tuesday. Looks like we’re still going to be without Law, Moxey and Lee Martin which isn’t ideal and expect Boateng to be on the bench. Tranmere are decent and their obvious threat is Norwood so we will need to keep him quiet. I rate...

    Alex vs Exe

    We need to bounce back after Saturday’s loss but this isn’t an ideal game to do that considering Crewe have a great home record of late, so we’ll need to be on our game to get anything. I’m anticipating a few changes, hopefully Lee Martin and Jonathan Forte will be back plus I’d be keen to see...

    The Tisdale, Oakley, Gwinnett, Perryman, Moore-Taylor, Harley, Simpson, Wheeler Derby

    Stupid thread title I know but it just shows the number of former ECFC staff/players that will be returning to SJP on Saturday. Just hope the game doesn’t descend into a bit of a circus due to the feelings some fans have toward Tisdale and the others. Apparently there were some idiotic chants...

    Bury vs Exeter

    Urgh, not optimistic about this one. Bury are flying and seem to score shit loads at Gigg Lane and we’re in a real slump at the moment. Could it be one of those games where we pick up the points against the odds? Would love to think so but just can’t see it. Have this feeling Maynard, Mayor...

    The Sol Campbell big match extravaganza (Exeter vs Macclesfield)

    I wonder if the big man will be at SJP to cast an eye over his new team tonight? Possibly not if he’s only just been appointed... Fuck knows what’s going to happen tonight. Will Macc turn in an impressive performance as so often happens when a new man comes in? Or will they scare him shitless...

    Colchester vs Exeter

    Not confident with this one. I actually think Colchester may well go up this season and I believe they’re decent at home? Norris and Szmodics are a big threat going forward so will undoubtably cause us problems from the off. We played pretty well vs Northampton last week and we’re starting to...

    Grecians vs Cobblers

    Christ knows what team we will put out on Saturday due to our current injury list but it’s a big game for us as we really neee a league win to edge back towards the top 3. We stopped the rot with a 2-0 win last night in the shit cup thingy against a second string Bristol Rovers, but hopefully...

    Tranmere vs Exeter

    Really tough one, this. Tranmere have done really well since coming up and they got a great win against Crawley who are no mugs. Obviously they have a huge threat with Norwood and I sometimes forget he played for us years ago when he was a teenager but was let go under a bit of a cloud...

    The Injury List thread

    Thought I’d start this as this is the time of the season where injuries seem to mount up for everyone. Do you have many injuries and if so are they to key players? We’ve got a couple of bad ones...Troy Brown is out for the vast majority of the season with a knee injury. He’s a big loss but he’s...

    Mariners vs Grecians

    The first of two away games in four days and it’s a long one up to Grimsby. Jolley looked like he was on the brink a couple of weeks back but a couple of wins later and Grimsby look much more comfortable. I’m surprised they struggled so much tbh. Hope we can carry on the unbeaten run and I’d...
