    Exeter City v Port Vale 17/9/19 Match Day Thread

    It's easy to forget how great it is to see these kids getting their chance! Seymour, Sparkes and Collins were all born within 18 months of each other. They have grown up playing football together for probably at least half their lives. Dan Green has coached them for most of that time. Last...

    Indeed, it was a stark contrast to Saturday. Not only did he get most of the decisions right his handling of the players left them no doubt he was in charge. To be fair, with the exception of Saturday, I've been impressed by all the referees we have had this season.

    Exactly. All those who've ignored his all-round contribution and focussed on his missed chances should be happy tonight. He struggled to get involved all night so that Ben Seymour had very little service but took his goal well.

    Like the Carlisle game this will go down as a comfortable win but just as at Carlisle this didn't feel that way while watching. After 80 minutes of a stuttering performance it felt like we were going to drop more points at home and maybe have to admit we are not as good as our league position...

    Story of a season so far. Calm and reasonably untroubled in defence, dominating possession but not creating enough chances, although their keeper has pulled off two very good saves. Richardson and Sparkes have looked very lively but we really need to get Bowman more in the game. Seymour has done...

    When Jay has played this season it has been in centre midfield in place of either Taylor or Law so if Lee Martin is rested the logical replacement would be either Seymour or Fisher. As for Richardson we've barely seen him since his stunning debut against Oldham and reports suggest he hasn't been...

    Are we really still paying Jonothan Forte? I assumed that there was some sort of insurance payout so we didn't have to pay him anymore.

    What is the keeper doing for Sweeney's goal? Did Nicky Law's decoy run put him off that much?

    Which is why it was such an inspired substitution to bring on Ben Seymour. Having handled the big strikers so well Coulson couldn't adapt to the different challenge of a small, nippy striker and gave away the penalty.

    The way the game was reffed was somewhat reminiscent of Brett Huxtable. Lots of fussy, look-at-me decision making in the first half but getting the key decision wrong followed by not having the bottle to send any Orient players off in the second-half.

    After the red cards for managers were introduced there seemed to be a brief period when there was less abuse of the fourth referee. However, that didn't last long and you wonder what the point of having rules for disciplining managers is if they are not going to be used.

    That's some serious re-writing of history. We went 8 league games without a win with Aaron Martin playing in seven of them. The run culminated in the Bury game after which he was dropped and then won four of the next 5. I know there is a lot of love for Aaron Martin and many fans think he has...

    The combination of conceding some unfortunate goals, weak refereeing and several senior players not quite at their best meant that this was a game that would have been easy to lose. Will be interesting to see how we react against Port Vale. If we have another off day then it might be time to...

    We have a strong squad this year so there is going to be competition for places. When you have a player as good as Tom Parkes on the bench then the players who are keeping him out of the team are going to be scrutinised. As for the others you mention, Lee Martin wasn't at his best today and we...

    Martin Ling is Orient's Director of Football so presumably he was back at the park. And apparently the Orient right back who was so lucky to stay on the pitch is his son.
