    Dan McCauley

    Dan McCauleys name was mentioned on another thread,has anyone got any particular memories of the time he tried to get involved with the club ? I can’t remember that much about his involvement in any takeover except the occasion he had a plane fly over SJP with a banner saying “Dans the Man” or...

    With increasing state control of all of our lives in the past 9 months,another health initiative is coming down the tracks.Minimum pricing for alcoholic units(this has already been implemented by the devolved Scottish Administration) It would not make a great deal of difference to me because I...

    Morecambe Tues 3rd Nov.Discussion thread.

    Goalkeeper situation.Will the young Icelander continue ? Morecambe look like they have a good side this season.A few good loan signings brought in.

    Seasonal Affective Disorder(SAD)

    Anyone else get this kicking in at this time of the year ? I always thought it was a load of nonsense when I was younger,but since turning 40 nearly a couple of decades ago it seems to effect me a little more with each passing year. Its going to be worse this year with all of the restrictions...

    20/21 Away Travel

    When will away supporters be allowed I wonder ? Nothing official has been said yet. Looking at other clubs sites it would appear that they are catering for home supporters with season tickets only using all of the ground. Unfortunately I don’t think away supporters will be allowed in the...

    What year did you first watch or take a interest in The Grecians ?

    Just a bit of fun to see the age demographic of posters. For me it was 1971 for the first match,I had taken a interest the year before aged 9. I wonder if there are any supporters about(not of this forum) who went to SJP pre 1935 ?

    20/21 Season

    Whatever division the Grecians will be playing in next season.It’s difficult see a start to the new season before October. I would imagine the League Cup & the Paint Pot Trophy will fall by the wayside. Though that could be a moot point due to sponsorship rights. The EFL may have to reimburse...

    11th May 1985.

    The 35th anniversary of a dreadful day,which sometimes gets forgotten about around this time. 56 fans burned to death at Bradford & not forgetting a 15 year old boy who was killed at St Andrews,Birmingham on the same day. What a dreadful few days & there was more bad news & tragedy at Heysel a...

    Old MOTD & Big Match.

    Anyone who knows me will know I love a bit of football nostalgia from the 1970s & 80s primarily. I will start this off with a Division Two game from Feb 1975.I can remember watching. A great part is the Steward in a white butchers coat(Southampton also had stewards in that attire) putting off...

    Automobiles : Good,Bad & the Ugly.

    After a couple of posts about cars on the TV thread thought it was about time the subject had its own. I have lost count of the number of cars I have had,probably 40+ in 42 years of driving since I was 17. The one car I alway wanted when I was 20 was a Triumph Stag, but for a car dealer...

    Football League Review.

    Whilst most of us are under ‘house arrest’ here is something to have a look back on. The Football League Review which in all intents & purposes was the mouthpiece of Football League Secretary,the autocratic Alan Hardaker from FL HQ at Lytham St Annes. Lots of great photos & articles from the...

    Former players.

    After a bit of debate on the Swindon MDT about former players,I thought I would kick this one off. A player who was a good servant to the club & had a pretty good strike record was Ray Pratt the Grecians very own super sub. Signed from Merthyr Tydfil for about £30k by Brian Godfrey around March...
