A 16 year old from Cambridge United has signed for AS Roma. They paid only £70K in compensation.
I wonder if we are vulnerable to this sort of hoovering up of talent?
About time. Rail seats are MUCH safer than people standing up in conventional seated areas. Especially at grounds like Luton, Pompey and others...
Assuming the turnout on Boxing Day is at least 5,590 (which looks a pretty safe bet) that will take the average for the first 12 games of the season to 5,000. That is of course bumped up by the Argyle game but it's nonetheless a pretty healthy increase. The only really below-par gate was for...
Now that the PL / Championship window is closed, loans of younger / less favoured players from the top clubs to us riff-raff now come into play. We still clearly need RB cover.
I don't expect we can attract Wilson back from WBA, they probably want him to go to a L1 club. But Matt is one hopes...
We have been discussing these elsewhere on Exeweb, but they probably deserve a thread of their own.
The IFAB (amusingly, stlll run by the 4 home football association rather than FIFA) who decide the laws of the Game are making more changes to the rules for next season, especially to handball...
This doesn't carry over the layouts properly but the numbers are unaffected.
So far the official numbers form the away grounds reveal that we have had 9,306 away attendances for an average of 443 a game, ranging from 123 at Lincoln to 1328 at Yeovil.
Assuming we get say 400 at Stevenage and...
These are the fixtures of the top 9. A lot of banana skins for everyone, but we only play 2 of the others:
23.03. Crawley Lincoln
30.03. Lincoln Macclesfield
06.04. MK Dons Lincoln
13.04. Lincoln Cheltenham
19.04. Carlisle Lincoln
22.04. Lincoln Tranmere
27.04. Newport Co...
This is an interesting piece.
"I still speak to Alex Inglethorpe (LFC Academy Director) quite a bit,"
Amusingly, if the rumors are true he was offered the job of manager at MK in...
Half of Block A now released for sale, as the rest of the stands are almost sold out. Should be a great atmosphere on Boxing Day with well over 5K in attendance.
Let's just hope for a good win. With 4 home and only 2 away games coming up we have a great chance to reel in the top three.
Worth £595M over 5 years, apparently.
Details are sketchy but if the current 80:12:8 split between Championship, L1 and L2 clubs continues this will mean our share should increase to just over £400K p.a. (595M x 0.08 / 5 / 23 = 0.414)
In order to stop the interminable guesswork, here is the main plan of how SJP will look after the redevelopment.
Mod please make this a sticky.
I see he is suspended for two games, as this was his second red for two yellows.
I see also that James has 10 yellows, has he already had a suspension for one game,?
Darren Sarll, Manager of Stevenage:
"To me, Exeter City set the bar for us all in League Two with the sale of 19-year-old Matt Grimes at £1.75m and they did it again with Ollie Watkins last season at £1.8m.
"This is the value of a young lad today with Premier League potential, no matter what...
Some tough words from David Artell at Crewe.
We don't have to play them again but our next three games are v. Hartlepool, Accrington and Cheltenham, all of whom are still looking over their shoulders, and also still have to play Newport at home...
As this is relevant to both the Argyle game and to ourselves next season while the ground capacity is reduced to just over 5,000 with both the OG (demolished) and most of the away terrace (site offices etc.) out of commission, I post for the information of all the EFL rules on away tickets...
