    Exeter City vs Peterborough Utd. Match day thread.

    For those bemoaning our 1st half display: Peterborough were excellent 1st half, strong, fast, well-drilled, & worked a ferocious & coordinated press. They were helped in this by the conditions - the wind made long clearances pretty much impossible. But their press did open spaces in the...

    Will Aimson joins on a permanent contract

    I'm guessing that was shouted Loudly... The "tackle" that gave away the penalty spoke volumes as to where Aimson's head is at - he'd been run ragged by the outstanding Mason-Clarke, he was beaten again, but no way he should have even been thinking of trying to make a tackle in that position...

    Exeter City vs Luton - EFL Cup - match day thread.

    Harsh, Sturtz - I was sitting close to the pitch in the NOG, closer to the away end - & when Mitchell went off, & Cox dropped back into the midfield, he got through a lot of work pressurising Luton players running at our defence. Definitely not plodding!!

    Alex Hartridge

    Agree with this. I think it's telling that Caldwell identified this as Hartridge's main weakness very early on last season. He now looks switched on constantly, & it's clear that his confidence & self-belief have blossomed at the same time.

    Transfer Deadline Day Thread

    Aye - but Peterbrough's chairman communicates bags of sh*te when he communicates.

    Transfers in/outs Summer of 2023 and Retained list

    Not that bad, Max - but, more to the point, definitely not as good as our own Borges, nor with comparable potential.

    Jevani Brown

    It's worth reading the Devon Live report closely - there's more at stake in the case than "just" the criminal behaviour to which Brown has pleaded guilty.

    Diversity on Exeweb

    This is actually a true story. Just ask exeweb legend scaramanga.

    Latest Club News..

    As a (more or less) lifelong vegetarian, I can tell you that the veggie dishes that Chefchenko is producing are pretty much all a step up from what's vailable at restaurants in the city....Herbies included.

    Jack Sparkes

    I have no idea, obviously... ... But I get the sense that he may have been offered something like a one year contract, on the assumption of limited playing time, on low wages. This is probably about right - he would bring something to the squad as a back up player, but Mitchell is clearly...

    Exeter v Lincoln Matchday Thread

    Fully concur with the write of Saturday's ref, Sunny Gill - easily the best offical I've seen at the Park in a very long time.

    Is there something wrong or not quite right?

    I haven't had the opportunity to read all of this thread, so apologies in advance if I repeat something that's already been said... It's interesting, I think, that most of the focus of the discussion that I've been able to read has been on Caldwell. There's certainly a stark difference between...

    Gary's January Transfer Window

    Two things stand out for me, Geoff. First, the Club backed Big Gazza in a way that, for whatever reasons, it hasn't been able to do in transfer windows past - not just in fronting up the cash to bring players in, but committing to keeping players whom we might otherwise have "had" to sell to...

    Gary's January Transfer Window

    I wouldn't expect much from Mitchell as a left-back in a back four - I don't think he's an upgrade, defensively, on Sparkes. His value comes from his pace, & ability to attack from deep on the left flank. (plus - what Max said)

    Demetri Mitchell signs on for City

    I'd be surprised if there were other clubs trying to sign him. He has had a bad spell with (impact) injuries - but he's been fit for a while now, & hasn't had a look in under Johnson at Hibs. He clearly had no future there, & they're desperately trying to rebuild their squad - it looks like...
