    I gamble. It can be addictive and exploitative. Am no prohibitionist but, given The Trust's ethical standards, I'd rather the club steered clear

    Exeter City Vs Newport County Matchday Thread

    One shot on target over the last two games. It's not good enough that Taylor and the club sent out the message this week that they were focusing on next season, when we had such a big game coming up. It set a bad tone, including by reminding those players who will not be offered a new deal about...

    Next Season......

    Success often relies on exploiting a comparative advantage. Oddly for us, our bank balance will be a major comparative advantage over many of our rivals this summer and spending then should provide good value for money given that many clubs will be reducing their spending and costs will be going...

    Ollie Watkins

    Of course if Ollie is sold to a club in a different county at any point in his career then, thanks to FIFA's solidarity payment scheme, 5% of the transfer fee should be shared between those clubs involved in his football education between the ages of 12 and 23. We would be entitled to receive...

    Change of kick off time for the Southend home game next Saturday

    I find the fawning deference we are expected to accept quite nauseating and fundamentally anti-democratic. If we want to better respect human life then bring it on. There are much more effective ways we can do it than this twee rubbish

    Do You Want a Play Off Space ? Yay or Nay ?

    Yes. If the team makes the final again then the experiences gained in recent years should both calm their nerves and spur them onto doing better

    Paul Tisdale - Ex-Bristol Rovers Manager to Col Utd

    For that to be true Paul Tisdale would have to of been lying when he said he wasnt a short termist manager, but someone who planned for the long term. Back on topic, I find it a bit cringe that Colchester appear to have fallen for Paul’s recent bouts of bullshyte bingo and rather classless...

    Exeter City v Salford : MDT : 1pm KO

    After recent years, we should me more focused and less nervous in the playoff final, if we get that far. Would be crazy to write off the playoffs

    Ollie Watkins

    An interview with a member of the England squad who is a ECFC product and has a Devonian accent. First time in my life. Won't lie - found the occasion quite moving. Dearly hoping he gets brought on tonight!

    St James Park Investments

    Encouraging news, but 100s of thousands on a big screen, when that could be spent on a plethora of other things, including assets that won't depreciate like a stone or player wages? No thanks

    Exeter City FC v Cheltenham Town FC Official Matchday Thread (3pm kick-off)

    Not a bad effort today but disappointing outcome nonetheless. Never got to see Exeter in 1989/90 as I was too young and my family never followed Exeter City (weirdos). I believe the current squad is the best we have had in tier 4 since I have been a fan and that we may look back at the current...

    What date will we be back watching live football at SJP Thread.

    You may be right on the time scale, but you're kidding yourself if you think the production of animal products that you consume doesn't present a risk to the spread of zoonotic disease. Most zoonotic diseases come through industrial animal agriculture We have a good idea what proportion of the...

    It is still our own immune systems that fight off covid and provide us with any lasting immunity. Am no virologist, but the covid vaccines prime our immune systems to recognise and so better fight the virus if and when they encounter it. It should mean that our immune systems have a more...

    What date will we be back watching live football at SJP Thread.

    Vaccines work by triggering a protective immune response within us - by triggering natural immunity if you like. If new COVID strains are developing in communities with waning or partial immunity, then delaying the dose interval increases the risk of these strains developing, which could impact...

    What date will we be back watching live football at SJP Thread.

    Appreciate this is not City related but, further to the above, COVID variants appear more likely to develop where people have waning or partial COVID immunity: This speaks against mucking around with the dose interval of vaccines that our ever so competent Govt is doing

    Don't mean to make you the target for my frustration with government! Regarding the dosing interval, we should be led by experts. Experts have quite a poor record when it comes to understanding things like economics, but a very strong one when it comes to dealing with public health pandemics...

    What date will we be back watching live football at SJP Thread.

    The Government wasn't pragmatic, but short-termist, amateur and naïve. There has never been a trade off between protecting public health or the economy - the two are inextricably linked. All the talk evoking bull dog spirit in adversity and controlling our borders, yet when a real threat was...

    Is this the most entertaining team we've seen?

    I think that's harsh. In addition to the numerous postponements, we have stopped playing 4-2-3-1 and moved to 4-4-2. Teams often come undone by being too attacking, but I think our earlier approach was worth it because, although it left us more exposed, it got more out of the squad. We have also...
