    Two Claptons but only one Indian Gymkhana!

    Worst Ever Performance

    Not the worst ever, but one that sticks in the mind is a 1-1 draw against Droylsden, April 2007 I think? Some seriously negative vibes on the Big Bank that night.

    The Conference and non league football thread

    I went along to Ebbsfleet v Torquay last night. I was impressed by the visitors, they looked very good going forward. Reid took his goal very well- great control and then smashed it into the corner.

    The Conference and non league football thread

    Thanks- I ended up looking into it as I was unaware there are now two Claptons! I went to their game away at Indian Gymkhana Club on Saturday which was an interesting experience. Free to get in, didn't have official assistant referees. Lots of goals though (5-4) and a good atmosphere.

    The Dinner Bell Has Rung - new ep. of The Big Bank Theory podcast

    I love it and it is becoming increasingly close to my favourite podcast! The section on the Echo really got me this week, I remember their campaign against the samurai sword well!

    The Conference and non league football thread

    I was going to go and watch them this Saturday but I didn't realise they were no longer playing at the OSD! Anyone know where they are currently playing? It states in the article Walthamstow, but Wiki says otherwise. I appreciate this is quite niche! Went to Boreham Wood V Notts County last...

    Newport County v Exeter City Matchday Thread

    Have I read this incorrectly or have you criticised Richardson for not taking advantage of the situation and winning a penalty, whilst also criticising a Newport player for doing exactly that?

    Argyle tickets

    Just a reminder that the season started with an Exeter fan racially abusing Hiram Boateng on Twitter and pro Tommy Robinson songs were heard at a home game a couple of weeks ago. I'm not sure we are in any position to be taking the moral/cultural high ground. I don't see the point in trying to...

    Argyle tickets

    That’s hardly a radical opinion is it? If I was attending the other 22 away games including Carlisle etc I would like to think i'd be priortised over someone who may have a ST but doesn't do any of the away games. It's about rewarding time and loyalty, not about money (or at least it shouldn't...

    Come of it! That touch and turn was ridiculous, glad to see him doing well down there.

    What was the last pub you visited...

    O I work on TCR! Not sure I’m familiar with the Flying Horse but I’ve definitely walked past the John Horner. I tend to drink closer to Warren Street.

    Welcome Tom Parkes

    So we got very lucky basically? No wonder their manager was livid

    Has anyone got an accurate figure on how much the Academy costs per year to run?

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

    Well i'm looking forward to it at least! I reckon we will sneak it 2-1.

    Coventry away

    I’ll be there. Last time I went to St Andrews I walked from New Street which took me roughly 25 minutes and that was at a decent pace. From memory, not a lot around the ground in terms of pubs etc. I’m interested to see how many we will take.

    Big Bank Theory podcast: Dressed For Snooker

    Only just discovered this but I wanted to say how much I enjoyed the first two episodes! Strikes the right balance of ECFC discussion and random tangents IMO. Looking forward to the next one and keep up the good work!

    Little things that annoy you

    Weren't you mortally offended earlier in this thread because a Tommy Robinson fan wasn't allowed a pint in a pub?

    Weston-Super-Mare friendly (Tues 16th)

    Have a Southend supporting colleague... they are down this way (playing Weymouth I believe) and fancied a game. Presume it will be at the Cat & Fiddle?

    Flybe Struggling (as ever)

    I really, really try not to get wound up by your posts but I just can't help it. Surely you must have some sort of moral compass and there are certain companies/industries that you wouldn't want embedded on your club's shirts? Again, surely you must be aware of the damage gambling addiction...

    Largest away followings at SJP

    Anyone know the exact amount the away end can hold now? From memory it's only just over 1000. There would definitely be a few clubs in League One who could potentially bring a lot more.
