    Teams we've not played.

    Great knowledge. I knew West Brom and should have guessed at Wolves. I never knew we'd played Forest in the league.

    Teams we've not played.

    Of all the teams we've played in the football league, I believe there is just one we have never beaten (in a league game)...

    "If you want to play football, recruit footballers"

    Great video. It does pose the question about our own philosophy and style under MT. I've never been able to work out how we are trying to play.

    Clear out?

    Absolutely. Particularly in the current environment, where there are going to be hundreds of players out of contract with the possibility of picking up some very good players for a fraction of what they would have previously been earning. A few hundred grand could go a long way.

    Who are the 8 players out of contract?

    It's just not practical or enforceable IMO, especially for 'next' season whenever that is. I suspect a number of clubs have existing players under contract for next season, that would break that threshold already. I'm thinking Bradford, Salford, Mansfield.

    Exeter City v Northampton Town - League 2 Playoff Final at Wembley Stadium

    Sheff Utd and Reading have both lost 4 finals. I'm assuming that's in the EFL, so I guess our Conference final defeat in 2007 does count for us.

    Exeter City v Northampton Town - League 2 Playoff Final at Wembley Stadium

    Of course they did, but the money goes to the EFL.

    Team for Wembley?

    So SJP is 6,656 metres squared whilst Wembley is 7,140 metres squared. So Wembley is 7% bigger than SJP. I'd say that's significant.

    The pitch looks great, I think we have a bigger crowd than normal!

    What did you do for the Playoff final two years back?

    Colchester v Exeter City Playoff MDT

    For exactly the same reasons, I think this could finish 4-4, riddled with errors. We'll hopefully have some quality off the bench which should be to our advantage, but I think the fittest and strongest team will ultimately prevail.

    Exeter City face 20 hour round trip !

    By law of averages teams will get promoted 1 in 4 times in the playoffs. They should reach the final 2 in 4 times. For me the 4 second leg playoff matches we have been involved with, probably all rate in my list of favourite ECFC games. 3 of the 4 finals however have been some of my low points...

    Exeter City face 20 hour round trip !

    One more point and we'd still be in the playoffs. 4 more points and we'd have finished third. The distance between Exeter and Colchester, IMO actually makes being away in the first leg a disadvantage. We're going to be knackered after a 20 hour day, with a game of football in the middle, with...

    I've not seen any pictures from the training ground of Nicky Law!
