    Bury - build up and prediction

    Oliver : Absolutely agree with the change of style . Will stand us in good stead on Saturday and during the 'run-in'. City have been so unlucky of late with not 'putting away' several chances . It will turn and the key is that the team is creating chances . Forte, Holmes , Law and Collins to...

    February 2019 Points Prediction Thread

    Jonathan Forte has been so unlucky ...not to score ...particularly at Carlisle. He'll put that right on Saturday in what promises to be an absolutely cracking match . ECFC to win ..both teams to score !

    Jordan Tillson out on loan

    The proper chap : The former manager's machiavellianism / sycophanticsm makes Matt Taylor and Eric Kinder's performance even more remarkable. The new era is akin to a dark cloud being lifted over my club ....which was not saved by the delusional whining PT but through dint of effort by numerous...

    Exeter City AFC v MK Dons Official Match Day Thread. 2 Feb 2019

    Thank you IndoMike: Where I sit in the Stansfield Stand there has been a palpable change of demeanour and it aint all about winning . It's very much about going out and endeavouring to play with style , professionalism and tactical flair... . the aim being too beat the opposition and not wait...

    Exeter City AFC v MK Dons Official Match Day Thread. 2 Feb 2019

    Bittners a Legend : 'MUCH MORE ENJOYABLE TO WATCH' ..Indeed it is. City haven't won every match at home this season but I've never doubted the application and evident team spirit which Matt and Eric have engendered. That together with some excellent signings , highly effective scouting 'north of...

    Exeter City AFC v MK Dons Official Match Day Thread. 2 Feb 2019

    Wonderful atmosphere in the Stansfield throughout . Had the pleasure of speaking with Ryan Harley and David Wheeler before and after the match. Absolutely no acrimony. Speaking with DW in the lounge after the game it was very apparent how he loved his time at ECFC. A real sportsman. I suspect...

    Exeter City vs MK D*ns build up thread

    Billy the Fish : You could be right about your 1-1 prediction . Ash : interesting word 'decent' ...defined as 'following generally accepted standards of morality or respectability' On that basis I consider ECFC to be a very decent club which has to function in a football world that persistently...

    Penalty!

    Forte was unlucky ..however the 'miss' will probably dent his confidence. Why not give the responsibility to Archie Collins ? ...his maturity shines through...as did in the penalty shoot out against Ipswich.

    February 2019 Points Prediction Thread

    ECFC invariably play better against the top sides so it's 13 points for me . Won't even attempt to guess the individual scores !!

    Exeter City vs MK D*ns build up thread

    Red Bill : 141 went to Grimsby . Some very interesting threads developing on the concrete roundabout forum...very critical of team performance , concern over possible player departures and a dearth of PT supportive comments . Agree with many posters here in that a long overdue win against...

    Exeter City v Cambridge United Matchday Thread

    Think some of the player performance comments are a trifle harsh. Forte worked hard with little or no support...and was a trifle unlucky with the penalty which was a full blooded shot . 'New boys' did well particularly Wilson and Williams . Back four looked really solid. The disappointments for...

    Exeter City v Cambridge United Matchday Thread

    Wouldn't argue with your general comment as to predictable pattern of play David . Now is the time to play down the wings and the 'scrappy goals' ( STURTZ) will come as defenders panic. 3-1 to City ...if we do. If not .....a dreary draw is my prediction.

    David Wheeler

    Will make next Saturday's encounter even more acrimonious. DW was an excellent player. Has the injury sustained whilst at QPR affected him ? Time will tell. My real fear is that Woodman will be selected to mark him. Strange that PT hasn't tried to sign him for the Dons !!!

    Did Tisdale pick a team to lose?

    IndoMike : As an adjunct to my previous post I have no means of knowing or intention of pursuing the direct source of their comments. What I can say is that none of the three were party to any paranoid anti-Tisdale faction. Indeed quite the opposite ...which in my view gave their utterences a...

    Did Tisdale pick a team to lose?

    IndoMike : On the subject of 'projected onto the players' I was advised by three well respected Grecians ( I and many others will have known for some thirty years plus) , last Saturday en route to the match , that Tisdale had informed the players the night before Wembley encounter of his...
