    if you could time travel what era would it be?

    1930s. Would travel across the USA. It would only be a few generations on from the Civil War (150th anniversiary this year) and America was on the verge on starvation and greatness. Across the pound, the Nazis were well on the way to blitzing Continental Europe and beyond. In Britain, the...

    Jonesy's 200th appearance

    Poultice. Airfix model or Kate Moss? Come on, give us the benefit of your wit and insight. I always look to you as the intellectual barometre of Exeweb.

    Jonesy's 200th appearance

    A great achievement. Would be nice in some on here would acknowledge that. At times, he's been utterly fantastic. Great shot stopping ability and MoM on many occasions. A time to reflect on his positive contribution, rather than the areaS where he needs or can improve. Well done young man.

    No snow and ice. It's getting lighter, Christmas is over and we've hammered the Aussies in The Ashes. Also, City have the opportunity to go to Wembley and thanks to an 18-match unbeaten run, we nip Southampton at the post to claim second spot in League 1. Harley stays with the club and turns...

    Norrie stewart resigns....

    A good point well made. If there was ever an issue it was about clarity of purpose. Personally, I believe we need a seasoned and successful professional to push the club onwards. In the CEO role it is about strategic policy, working downwards. Where do we want to be in five-years time, how do we...

    Southampton v Exeter City Prediction thread

    I reckon 2-2 with Troy being brought back in to give us extra pace to deal with their two tricky wingers. Also, Noble to start in the middle as this big game on a great surface in front of a packed house is made for him. Ryan Harley and Sercombe (or Dunne if Sercs not fit). At least 1,200 City...

    Positivity. Some peace and Goodwill would be nice.

    Sometimes, given the perochial sniping on these sites, it's easy to forget just how far we have come. In the 40 years I've been a fan I cannot remember a team with so much quality. In Cureton - brought in as a last minute thought - we have the best striker since Kellow (praise indeed), three...

    Tis, Dunne and Noble

    Noble has the ability to be City's best midfielder. He has skill, vision and physical presence. At the moment, he is inconsistent and finding it hard to find his place in a team with three other fantastic midfielders. Personally, I think he will click sometime soon and then he will soar. It must...

    'One heck of a manager...'

    There is a distinction between the real fans and those chumps who turn up for a fight, whether they be from Argyle or Exeter. Remember, we have enough idiots - see City centre on a Saturday night - and I doubt whether they go to too many games each season.

    local football in the old days

    Played for Foxhayes U11 and U15... both on the same day. Would finish one game at Marsh Barton, nip home for lunch (full Saturday fry up) and then pile into the former ambulance for the trip to some god-for-saken place miles into the countryside, playing against farming lads who used to kick the...

    'One heck of a manager...'

    The two sages of Exeweb...... Glad Tis is 'alright.' God, for a minute, I didn't quite know if he was any good or not. I think, given time, the good footballing people of Exeter will realise quite how fortunate we - and Tis - have been to come together at this point. Usually, it is only with...

    Reggie T42 speaks his mind.

    And don't you go on about it. Give it a rest and just post. Preferably, something interesting and not intertwined with swear words. I am sure you will give it large and I shouldn't bite, but god, we have Argley in the league on Saturday. Haven't you got something to say about that? I mean...

    Express & Error (renamed the where's AU and/or let's whinge at the mods thread))

    Re: Express & Error It's down to money. The newspaper industry is in the mire and The Express and Echo are no different. Updating etc costs and they are keeping those down to a minimum. Trying to be a good journalist in this day and age is exceptionally hard.

    Happy Birthday Scot Bennett

    Bennett has a chance, but will have to knuckle down hard to make it with City. He's growing up - has a girlfriend in London - and there's a lot that can knock a young man off his stride, career wise. Scott can dominate in games and has not been helped by being played in numerous positions. I...
