    Re: Exeter City Ladies

    Messi is 1.70, same height as me. But you can't base a whole argument on a small number of exceptional individuals. I was average height when I was a nipper, now I'm well under.

    It's something...

    Re: Exeter City Ladies

    I like watching women's football up to a point, it has many good aspects, but agree with those who say it's futile to compare it to the speed and athleticism of the man's game.

    IMO the woman's...

    Re: Kabongo Tshimanga

    I'm relaxed about this. Unless Matt plans to change to 4-4-2 (no evidence I've read) there is no regular spot for a second target-man type striker, particularly one who wants some kind of guarantee...

    Re: Former Players

    Yes. They got over 6550 in L2 and should add 1,000 or more in L1 plus more money from TV etc., total over 0.5m increase, so will be OK.

    Re: Ethan Ampadu off to Chelsea

    As Chelsea have a transfer embargo, since Cahill has gone (and even if Zouma returns) I expect he'll stay and be a regular bench-warmer as CH and DM cover. Otherwise a mid table PL team like Palace...

    Re: Summer 2019 - Possible signings

    This time last year Matt Jay had been written off by many (I was one of the doubters) and Archie Collins was barely on the radar. Assuming Forte is not going to play, I certainly would give Seymour...
  7. Re: Hopes and Expectations for the coming season

    Pretty much how I feel. I don't expect us to get promoted, but would like to see a few more home wins, even if it means a few more dejected trips home from away-days.

    Re: Wage structure

    This is I believe broadly correct. As a matter of pure arithmetic with +/- 30 professional players and a P1 budget of 1.5M the average (mean) salary including NI must be +/- 50K.

    Re: Wage structure

    No the players' wages budget (called P1) doesn't include the manager, coaches and backup staff who are part of the larger P2 budget. P1 has to be reported to the EFL twice a year but not, I think,...

    Re: Ollie Watkins

    Also, I imagine his agent will get a percentage of any fee so will be pretty hot on ensuring it is recorded accurately. But Ollie had a mixed season and I suspect his value has not shot up as far as...

    Re: Nigel Atangana Signs

    True. And this is such an important position, protecting the back 4. It demands concentration and reading the game, not pinging 30 yard "oooh..." passes.

    We haven't really had a specialist...

    He has also posted the match day income account for their game with Argyle. More income from away than home fans. Only 345 from programme sales. How Accies survive and thrive is a miracle.

    Sticky: Re: Transfers in/outs 2019/20 and Retained list

    I'd also be v. happy for Seymour to be given a chance. But the manager will need first to see him in PSFs and training to see how much he has developed, no?

    Yes but the rugby games bring in crowds in the 000s which more than pays for the cost of putting on the games and extra work on the pitches. Also, have you seen the state of their pitches - Notts...

    No-one has the "right" to play at the home of the club they represent. It's a decision for the Club concerned and they have to take a range of issues into consideration.

    In principle, yes it...

    Re: Summer 2019 - Possible signings

    Dunne will presumably go to someone in the London area - Orient, Crawley? Not sure if he could resurrect his career with us, might be worth a try if Tillson isn't coming back. Still only 29.
