    Home leg prediction

    With ittle in the way of change: 0-2. (3-0 loss on agregate). Get caught out chasing the game. With changes: i.e Maxted; Sparkes (right wing attack - I saw Sparkes play that position in Weymouth and Dorchester PSFs ages ago - magic); Jay (starting); Randall - Taylor on bench 3-5-2...

    Wort zur Brunnerstraße

    Yep. I remember watching Keagan play for Hamburg when they came to Berlin in March or April 1980 - playing Hertha BSC in the Olympic Stadium. the Hertha manager had a fool proof system published in the newspapers on how to stop the Hamburg machine ....... man-to-man mark Keagan off the pitch...

    Anybody know the current state of our pitch? it was starting to get quite badly cut up and boggy in parts what with all the rain February. Is it starting to look better? Are there any photos plse? (Sorry if there is a more appropriate and up-to-date thread, but this is the best I could find...

    Portsmouth V's Exeter City EFL Trophy SF Official Match Day Thread

    Looking forward to the team selection tonight? Last 16 = generous mix of youth. But now, winners of next game goes to Wembley ...….so generous mix of elite youth and hardy fringe players like Jay, Randall, Fisher, Holmes et al?

    Exeter City v Stevenage Mental Health Awareness Matchday Thread

    I was not at the game, so not qualified to comment on the performance overall - and of individuals. However …….. I notice once again that our two main strikers were not on the score sheet. Do we have an issue here? If so, do we (MT) have a slowly emerging problem?......…. and if so, what can...
