Given that the Trust model has come under fire as of late as being unsustainable, does anyone know who the Isca people were that wanted to take control of the club in 2002 (?) but lost out to Russel and Lewis *shudder*...?
From the BBC...
It seems to me that there are a few of us posting on here re Paul Tisdale, only about 30 voices on average to be honest versus the 3,000 who routinely turns up for home games.
Therefore, the argument is that Exeweb represents a vocal minority. Yet I suspect that many of the remaining 2,970 pay...
Interesting listening to the message from Cambridge Utd following their FA Cup windfall (remember that?):
Made me stop and think: has anything whatsoever been said by our lot following...
The gist of the article is that we can make money from Argyle away (amongst other home fixtures).
But surely we don't get any of the gate receipts for away League fixtures..?
Given that we are all 'once bitten twice shy' after our 2003 troubles, I feel it prudent to explore all avenues.
It might appear to some outside observers that the board made a power grab at the same time as edging us closer to administration by taking out a £100,000 loan on top of the £60,000...
Hope he gets it, a legend for what he did for us after relegation. I see Inglethorpe is still doing well, too. More evidence we had two good managers who put together an impressive...
We need to send a message loud and clear to the board that we have no interest in this vanity project whilst the club is in such a dire financial position.
Any losses from this trip should be paid by those who organised it.
No mugs, DVDs, shirts or anything else. The fans did not ask for this...
According to Express and Echo
Mods, forgive me if this is already in another thread
... Is purple:
So any chance of a purple away kit for our Conference travels next season? Loved the old purple Jewson kit, and the purple away days (although why pineapples were...
In a largely woeful and forgettable season, the wins over the Scum and the Yellow Basement Dwellers stand out as two fantastic wins.
So when did we last do the Devon Derby Double Double?
Now that we seem to have 'clicked' at long last (only five months ffs) then what are our chances? Frankly...
Bear with me on this one, but given we are seemingly on course to return there, were those 5 seasons so terrible?
- we were a big club, and one of the best supported (indeed, weren't we the best attended one season?)
- we spent the great majority of that time around the play-off zone or higher...
Barring postponement, tomorrow night Paul Tisdale will become the longest serving manager in club history, surpassing the reign of Johnny Newman (377 games).
Regardless of current feelings, that is quite some achievement in over a Century of City managers.
No apologies for starting a new thread, I feel we should recognise that he has now brought three major* clubs to Exeter for PSF's, including the then FA Cup holders, and we have had some very good gates off of the back of this (5,000+ for Pompey).
Thank you Harry, because precious few other big...
Anyone one listening to 5 Live this morning? Discussion about Prem clubs charging up to £500 for kiddies to be mascots:@
Anyway, they read out a text from 'Steve', who said:
"I support Torquay Utd: we PAY the kids £500 and STILL can't get any mascots!"
I wonder who 'Steve' is? *-)...
Oh dear, poor old Paul Bungle has had his playing budget cut:-O
Why? because the sorry old Turks can only pull in a home attendance equivalent to the numbers the mighty ECFC[ecfc] take to away games:$
What a sorry state of affairs for Devon's* 3rd team (*although we are in talks to see if...
You have been a stalwart on here since you came back from the 'wilderness'*
* Janner-speak for having his phone and internet cut off
Your posts always make me LOL:) especially your Barmy classics:D
You are sorely missed tonight, and I really hope that you are not feeling...well...intimidated...
