    Goalkeepers

    One right up the guru's street and straight into his arms, only for it to slip through, but, why do the FA bother with trying to regulate goalkeepers. They are the protected species in the penalty box and also flout the rules without punishment. Three gripes that I have which are not being...

    Swindon Town V Exeter City Sunday 5/1/20 - An appetiser?

    The women's teams are due to meet on Sunday at Swindon (strangely not at the County Ground) or should I say Fairford. The women are currently lying in fifth spot despite having played the fewest matches in the division...

    Half way there!

    Prediction from 538 for the rest of the season, which I would take now especially if the scum then blow it in the play offs https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/soccer-predictions/league-two/ January will be interesting for Swindon and their Bradford goal machine, if Bradford recall him then...

    Exeter City V Cambridge Utd Emirates FA Cup 1st Round replay Discussion Thread

    Missed my first match of the season this weekend, and by the sounds of it didn't miss much apart from frustrations. I was in Cambridge watching my daughter row, on the way back I tuned into radio Cambridge and caught the last half an hour of their match with Walsall, by the sounds of it and...

    Cambridge Utd Versus Exeter City Discussion and prediction thread

    The first of three interesting fixtures which by the end of it should confirm whether we have changed and are up for the challenge of promotion or are just the same old Exeter City failing short just when it matters. Cambridge and Scunthorpe (away on Tuesday) are two fixtures where historically...

    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...

    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.
