    If anyone thought Harley got some stick on here...

    ....they should go onto the Brighton site, " North Stand Chat "' where he is being absolutely hammered after yesterday' s performance...usual mindless b*ll*cks about lack of effort, not trying, being a bottler blah blah...I saw Brighton play Burnley last week and he started the game very well...

    Maradona Vs Hungary 1982

    Worth eight minutes of anyone's time on You Tube. Poor quality film and totally unlistenable accompanying music so has to be watched silently but it is forgotten just how good he was before " that " World Cup. All his genius on show here. Only 21 in 1982 but he already had astonishing skill...

    Arsenal v Man Utd

    Graeme Souness : " Arsenal have been fabulous ." Redknapp : " Arsenal have been great..." Really ? Am I watching the same - frankly pretty dull - game ? Arsenal are by far my favourite premiership team but I think they have been pretty ordinary - no shots on target and the usual...

    Real madrid v Tottenham

    Barcelona v Arsenal

    Very very well done to Exeter but as i wasn' t there and would rather chew off my own head than invest in Grecian Player given its apparent never ending problems i watched Barcelona absolutely destroy Arsenal. For anyone to dwell on the ridiculous sending off for Van Persie is to completely miss...

    England 2 3 Scotland 1967

    Got the DVD of this famous game for Christmas and watched it yesterday. Great to see the full 90 minutes of a game from so long ago rather than a couple of minutes on Youtube. Absolutely fascinating as well. It pointed up a number of differences with today' s football, some of which were to be...

    Does anyone know status of David Noble fitness ?

    I seem to recall reading that when we signed him, it was hoped that he would be fit to play by the end of March. Given that is exactly where we are I wonder if we can expect to see him in the squad shortly ?

    Do we get a cut from away league games ?

    I am very ignorant about how some things currently work and would appreciate it if anyone can enlighten me. Do Exeter get any cut of the gate receipts from away games in the league ? In other words are we financially better off from playing away to Leeds and Norwich as opposed to Forest Green...
