    Exeter City Versus Leyton Orient prediction and discussion thread

    Matts up on twitter saying Nicky Ajose has picked up a knee injury so he won't be available for the next two games not that we have needed him at the moment, I do think though that he will come good and come the end of the season he could be vital to our success. Also out is Gary Warren Lee...

    Premier League Cup 2019-20

    This may have skipped people's attention but next month we are due to play away to Cambridge Utd in the qualification round of the Premier League Cup, after they beat Bristol Rovers away in the first qualifying round.

    Coventry City V Exeter City Carabao Cup 1st Round - Matchday Thread

    The excitement can obviously be cut with a knife on the anticipation and expectation of this match. An away day(evening) in Birmingham (despite the Title) and the possibility of playing a premiership 2nd or 3rd team await the winners of this tie. A win is a win and will keep up our good start...

    Start of the Season - Macclesfield at home

    With Macclesfields' precarious position both financially and with their squad, I just can't get excited about the first game of the season. I'll be there among the 4k+ looking for 3 points and an emphatic victory, hopefully scoring at least four (revenge for last season) and our side setting out...

    What responsibility do agents/players have when signing for a club?

    A tadge Naive of me I know, but after the season just gone, with any number of football clubs in dire circumstances for one reason or another, and us possibly losing out to sign a player to a side with average attendances of 1500 (may not be for financial reasons I know that we lost out), I was...

    The Run In

    Although everyone seems to have an opinion who's a shoe in for the Autos and who's likely to slip into the play-offs, this year currently has the promise to be one of the most exciting finishes to a season for a long time. With clubs currently standing in twelfth having the potential of putting...

    Carlisle Utd v Exeter City prediction thread

    Moving on. Time to see whether last Saturdays result was a one off for a big game or if we can continue to challenge and force our promotion contenders into as many errors as last week. Home fixture was as exciting as Saturday with our goals coming from debutants, and similar scoreline. This...

    Port Vale V Exeter City Prediction thread

    Does a win in the tinpot trophy add to our current league winning streak of three? Port Vale currently 14th in the division having won 4 drawn 1 and lost 4. So a mixed start for the Valiants, like their opinions on us. Some see it as a win for them and some see us as one of the teams that are...

    Is there going to be a cull?

    As the season moves into the final quarter and all appears up for grabs, with the potential of playoffs or even automatic promotion a possibility, I question whether the squad we currently have is strong enough to challenge in league one or heaven forbid should we fall short again will it be...
