I always like to see a new thread for an academy player who makes his debut & Alex's performance in today's, quite extraordinary, match certainly merits one IMO.
I thought his performance was excellent, even though Grimsby clearly tried to test him out in the first 20 mins of the game with their...
I don't really do social media, but my oldest son tells me that there is something on twitter about this guy being lined up to sign for us in January.
He's a 22 year old midfield player with Blackburn Rovers (possible Eric Kinder connection then) & has apparantly already been training with us...
Listening to 606 on the way back to Bude & the first caller is Steve, talking about our remarkable come back today.
No idea who Steve is, but he represented our club excellently & explained the joys of watching lower league football very well.
Is it possible to become an ECFC 'Legend' at the age of 20, after not much more than a dozen games & half a dozen goals ?
In view of the importance of the game, the opposition, the timing of the winning goal & the fantastic nature of it, I'm starting to think it may be.
With the NDG's mini bus not travelling & the supporters coach fully booked, I am struggling to find transport on Saturday.
If anyone has a spare seat I would be geateful to hear from you. I am happy to meet at any pick up point, at any time & contribute whatever is required towards petrol costs.
Ok, I think we're all pretty much resigned to Matt leaving us for bigger & better (?) things in January, but as of yet I'm not aware that any particular club is a favourite for his signature. So how about we have a bit of fun & see who can accurately predict where he'll be off too.
Me, I'll go...
The boy deserves a seperate thread, I think!
I was caught completely by surprise when he was named in the side today, having not made the bench in the previous league games, but what a debut!
Fantastic passing ability; I can't remember a pass going astray & has very quick feet, which enables him...
Apologies if this has already the subject of a thread, however I have just been looking at the thread about the shortest player to have appeared for City.
LLL mentions Nicky Jennings & for some reason whenever I think of him I always remember the game v Halifax Town, then managed by Alan Ball...
There's a cliche that decisions will even themselves out over the course of a season. If that's the case then we must due a significant number of favourable decisions over the next few months.
This season to date, we seem to have been on the wrong end of more bad decisions than we usually get in...
I am aware several exewebbers have justifiably had real doubts but have the last couple of games answered the question of whether they can play alongside each other in a back three ?
I accept that we moved to a back four for the second half yesterday, with TAH in front of them.
3 quality goals all in the space of a minute during the half time break:)
After much thought my vote goes to Codi. but only just.
Fantastic to see all three Stanno juniors out there yesterday; just as I thought I had moved on, another tear jerker, but of the best kind.
With the emphasis on 'realistic' these are my hopes for next season:
Stanno makes a full recovery & is back training towards the end of the season.
The new pitch turns out to be everything that Tis wants.
A top half finish.
Our average home gates tops 6000.
We do the double over the side down...
