    Books you’ve had unread on your shelf for more than two years.

    I’ll start with The Practical Way to a good Memory ( seriously) by Dr Bruno Furst.Well ,I have stared at the title a few times , must remember to drop it down the charity shop sometime. And , to my shame , the three Troy books series by the late great David Gemmell. They are the only Gemmell...

    Given our inconsistency on the field this season ,

    but bearing in mind our budget and the wages we are able to offer and that some players may not renew their contracts anyway , what changes would you like to see next for season ? I'll kick off with a well worn one at the moment , that I'd hate to see our midfield moulded around what I see as...

    Have we gone about as far as we can go ?

    Quietly musing on the Harley dabacle , I wonder if we've now reached the heights as far as our league status is concerned. We've done very well lately and if we can establish ourselves in League 1 then this is , of course , an excellent result. However , because of our limited finances and our...

    The irony !

    Two conflicting articles in today's Echo. Key trio miss training as bug hits Exeter City again Exeter 'fitter than rivals' thanks to Tis's training Maybe we're training too hard , tiring the players and decreasing their resistance to bugs ? Just a thought , it seems to be happening a lot...

    Some jokes for the ladies

    One day my housework-challenged husband decided to wash his T-shirt, seconds after he stepped into the kitchen, he shouted to me, 'What setting do I use on the washing machine?' 'It depends,' I replied. 'What does it say on your shirt?' He yelled back, ' Liverpool .' And they say blondes are...

    So after today's result do we need to strengthen ?

    Once again , after a great win last week we have shown our frailty in what , on paper , should have been a far simpler game to get a result in today. Regardless of what Tis says , do we need to strengthen the team in the window before it's too late to have any chance of competing and staying up...

    1. The roundest knight at King Arthur's round table was Sir Cumference. He acquired his size from too much pi. 2. I thought I saw an eye doctor on an Alaskan island, but it turned out to be an optical Aleutian . 3. She was only a whisky maker, but he loved her still. 4. A rubber band...

    Always playing catch-up

    Here we go again. A very average Wycombe side that was seemingly there for the taking , give away a goal and spend the whole game playing catch-up. I don't care how much pretty pretty football we play , up , down and around the Park , how many shots did we have in the first half? One! This is...

    So what is our best combination?

    After sitting through last night's cup tie with Swindon , I came away thinking ( as I did when we played them in the league ) , that we could and should have beaten them , they were not that great. We got our wish and started with three ( yes three ! ) out and out strikers up front.As I listened...

    Worse linesman ever?

    Probably not , but the bald headed twerp running the line on the Stagecoach side must have come very close to that title last night. Failure to keep up with play and spot blatant offsides culminating in the one where he failed to blow and Oscar got hurt making a courageous save. Where do they...

    Should we sign a permanent winger ?

    I see from today's Echo that Craig Noone may miss the Charlton trip.Also , as discussed on other threads he could well be recalled after one month anyway , especially given the perilous...

    Will it work for us ?

    With Argyle apparently in the s**t , they have let us have Noone on a three months loan . One would have thought that they might need him themselves in the circumstances , but will he transform our team? Has Tis finally cottoned on that we have some more than capable strikers but no supply to...

    Which striker will go out on loan?

    After the euphoria following the arrival of Fleetwood , which of our strikers will be farmed out on loan now we have seven established strikers (including Norwood but excluding Stewart) on the books? Unless we are now going to play three up front of course !

    Exeter and the transfer deadline

    Given that the transfer window closes ( I think ) on 31st August do you think we really need to make any further signings before then to strengthen the team in any position? It seems that as our last four points have been gleaned from an own goal and a penalty ,an out and out striker might just...

    A man with a bald head and a wooden leg is invited to a Xmas fancy dress party. He doesn't know what to wear to hide his head and his wooden leg, so he writes to a fancy dress company to explain his problem. A few days later he receives a parcel with a note: Dear Sir, Please find...
