    Gold for Exeter City (again)

    A certain irony that Scunthorpe United are amongst the Gold winners.

    The Official Title Deciding Exeter City versus Port Vale Matchday Thread

    Too good to be sitting at a computer typing. Currently 19c, with the wind having shifted round to NNE, but cloud bubbling up, though nothing looks rain bearing. As mentioned earlier the UV is high (6 at the time of wrting) and the grass pollen count is also very high. Time methinks to wander to...

    The Official Title Deciding Exeter City versus Port Vale Matchday Thread

    It's 15c on a bright sunny day in Exeter (Devon) and it's going to get warmer. There's a N breeze which is very gentle, and the barometer indicates that it'll shift round to NNE during the rest of the morning, which shouldn't make much difference at all. There's been a trace of rainfall during...

    Cameron Dawson {signs on loan for Exeter!}

    For me, one of the most affecting scenes of a season (in which there have been many!). Cam was obviously trying to stay 'in the zone', but the singing was loud, sincere and he must have been aware of it. That said, as many others have posted here, he was sent out on loan to try and improve his...

    Exeter City vs Barrow Matchday Thread

    After three glasses of Albarino, trying to make sense of tonight is impossible, except to reiterate what people have said about the collective togetherness of the team and the way that the manager (er!) manages them. Overall it was a very nervy performance, but one that lifts a load from the...

    Exeter City vs Barrow Matchday Thread

    Earlier than promised, due to the need to fortify myself ahead of the game. It's been a glorious afternoon, and the wind has gone round to SSE and almost (but not quite) disappeared. It's going to be sunny into the evening and should be a great evening for a game of football. Personally I...

    Exeter City vs Barrow Matchday Thread

    Gloriously sunny Exeter; 14c with a SE breeze that can gust to 3-4. No appreciable rainfall in the last 24 hours. nd indication that the wind may be moving round to SSE, which should mean that the breeze will subside. Downside is that the pollen count is high (but down from very high) and the...

    Exeter City vs Rochdale match day thread

    The sun is making an effort to come out from behind the grey clouds, but although it's 13c, it still feels colder in the persistent NE breeze. There are still flecks of rain in the air, and all this is not helping to establish my newly acquired apricot tree. I hope that we make a good start to...

    Exeter City vs Rochdale match day thread

    It's a dull, windy day in Exeter. It's 12c, but the brisk NE wind makes it feel much cooler. There's also a hint of drizzle in the wind. There was just a trace of rain in the last 24 hours, and rainfall for April is way down on what I've plotted in previous years. The cloud cover is light grey...

    Exeter City V Tranmere Rovers Matchday Thread

    What has ever been 'rational' about watching Exeter City play?

    Exeter City V Colchester Utd Matchday Thread

    It's 12c under a light grey cloud, and mist that is quickly burning off. There's next to no wind, though it's notionally blowing from the S, with occasional drift to SSW. There was a trace of rain in the last 24 hours, but nothing significant. I'd expect it to at least partially sunny by...

    Why Are So Few Other Clubs Trust Owned?

    Fair question and one which I hope to answer in my book on 20 years of Trust Control at Exeter City (not the finished title - just a working one!) which I've been commisioned to write by a well known publisher - who have also given me a dedicated Editor. It's due to be finished by late January...

    Why Are So Few Other Clubs Trust Owned?

    Your point about a collective affort is a good one. I was thinking more of those who played an important role, and who yet, for one reason and another are left out of the general narrative surrounding the forward progress of the Trust and the Club. Since I am going to name names, I'll ponit out...

    Why Are So Few Other Clubs Trust Owned?

    Unfortunately, Rob, not true. The two Man U games did not "wipe out our historic debt" - it helped substantially, but it was also down to incredible cost cutting, and money saving, which continued into the next season. Indeed Eamon Dolan (RIP) produced a hard hitting document for the Club Board...

    Exeter City vs Stevenage Match Day Thread

    I'd say that that statement applies to all the remaining games. I think that it's pointless looking at the form, or otherwise, of what is happening around us, it's down to Exeter City to win as many of those games as we can. A notable difference today (when I didn't think that we played...
