    Team for the first game back

    Assuming that the season restarts (maybe in June) and that everyone in the squad is fit; what would be the team including subs? Some interesting dilemmas.... My thoughts would be Maxted (my opinion is that Ward hasn't quite been the same since coming back from injury and Maxted has the ability...

    Its in the stars

    So, City got promoted to League 1 last time after losing to a NW seaside town and then the following year beating a team beginning with the letter C. Just saying......

    Goal Stats

    So, quite a phenomenal season for goal scoring with a total of 91 goals scored. You have to go back to the 2007/08 season to beat that total (101). Of the 91 goals, 33 were scored in the first half and 58 in the second with the 90+ minutes registering the most at 12 (not unsurprising). City were...

    Travel to the Match

    I drove down from Swindon yesterday for the game and what a nightmare journey. Started off at 12 thinking that I would have plenty of time (normal journey time is 2 hours tops). I first hit queueing traffic just past Leigh Delamare and it took an hour just to get to the Bath turnoff. The M4/M5...

    Goals or lack of them

    So, with one game left, City have scored just 50 goals. If they dont put 5 past Hartlepool on Saturday, it will be the lowest total for at least 8 seasons (my records dont go back any further than this). Defensively, and seems strange saying this given the personnel at the back (or some of the...

    Paul Tisdale - A plea

    Mr Tisdale From the last two friendlies, it seems fairly clear on what the first choice 11 will be. With the exception of Dawson at RB (a forced change) the structure and make up of the team will change little from the side that performed so poorly at the end of last season. Only, for the start...

    Exeter City AFC

    There is a brown sign on the corner of Polsloe Road and Heavitree Road (by the traffic lights) directing people to "Exeter City AFC". What does the "A" stand for?

    Location Location

    Interesting programme last night following a TUFC coach looking for a new property in Torquay that needed sufficient space for the mother in law. The seacrh was not helped by the fact that husband and wife had completely different tastes in property. Obviously when the show was recorded, Buckle...

    Pre Season Surely thats what pre-season is for so that the team is "ticking" right from the off. You have to question why the first team have not had much of a work out in the PSFs. Sounds like they will be "under...

    Shay Given

    In these times of over inflated transfer fees for under inflated talent, this seems a bit of a bargain: 1400: FOOTBALL - Aston Villa are on the verge of completing a £3.5m deal for Manchester City's Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Shay Given.
