    Matt Taylor Leaving? Has left!

    Apparently in his drive North to Rotherham, Matt Taylor got to the same roundabout in Swindon that Sweenz failed to negotiate in summer 2021 and, like Pierce, he's now had enough and is chugging his way back down the M5 as we speak.

    Matt Taylor Leaving? Has left!

    I think you are going to be disappointed Taylor has already made up his mind. It was Taylor who brought up the propect of him leaving in yesterday's interview when he could have said nothing. I suspect he told the players after the game and just wanted to buy a little more time to make some...

    Sides on the Bank

    Talk of sight lines reminded me of life in the Old Grandstand. When my son was much younger and was happy to still sit with his dad, we attended yet another dismally dull Tisdale-inspired 'Exeter nil...' home game (it was during that long run of no home wins which seemed to span two seasons)...

    My favourite Richard Duffy memory came at SJP. Can't remember who the opposition were, but Duffers found himself as the last defender against a pacy forward who was sprinting in on goal.

    I'd add Kite to that list too. On Tuesday night he burst into the Shrewsbury box and was clipped by a defender. Rather than go down, he stumbled and stayed on his feet but lost control of the ball. This was when we were 1-0 up and in control. I rather admire this but I'm not sure it will win us...

    The Shrewsbury Town v Exeter City Official Matchday Thread

    I was stood right behind the goal. No blame can be attached to our goalkeeper. Hope that clears it up.

    Key has been warming up alongside the centre backs.

    Yes, any coracle operative outside the Montgomery Waters Meadow would have to negotiate a Next, Pets at Home and Pizza Hut on ball collection duty.

    Looking forward to my fist visit to the Montgomery Waters Meadow (and a 0-1 City victory).
