    EFL decision day - Monday 8th June (now Tues 9th June)

    My understanding is that the cap is not yet enforceable as it is subject to challenge by the PFA. I might have got the wrong end of the stick on this though.

    Yep, he should but in the eyes of our manager, he is not yet ready for first-team football. My suspicion is that he is not going to make it - but hopefully he is just a late bloomer.

    Pre-season friendlies

    I have just heard that may not of been the final score, as my source left before full time!

    Pre-season friendlies

    The training ground played host to the first match of preseason with the Exeter City U18s v Tiverton Town U18s this afternoon. A tough match but our youngsters triumphed 14-0. Not sure they would have learned much from that but a win is a win.

    I heavily suspect his budget has or is in the process of being significantly enhanced. A expect an announcement shortly.

    50/50 draw

    Footypitch was sold in the end for some money, although not much more than bugger all I grant you!

    He's a striker isnt he 😂

    Transfer Rumours 2020

    It is irresponsible to commit to increasing your spending when you dont have any idea of what your income will be. Whilst we shed 8 players, we have also lost circa £600k from our reserves and we have no idea when spectators can return. Hopefully the rumours about Chrisene are true and this...

    Ollie Watkins

    I am guessing those numbers are based on either a 15% sell on or a 20% sell on depending on which applies.

    I heavily suspect you are right. Maybe the compo for Chrisene is already agreed and that is what will fund our two new additions that MT has alluded to. Fingers crossed.

    Seems highly probable.

    Transfer Rumours 2020

    I just dont believe that the club would be so negligent as to allow a manager to increase the clubs known outgoings, without the financial comfort of a windfall. I know what Taylor has said to the media, but I dont see that this detracts from the message I have tried to convey. These are tough...

    Ben Chrisene

    Whilst I would love to advance the academy to the next level, I just cannot see that happening. The ongoing revenue costs of advancement are significant and I fear, beyond us.

    Transfer Rumours 2020

    I expect any signings we make will be made after we have received windfall money from Chrisene and (hopefully) Watkins. Could be a wait yet.

    Ben Chrisene

    Is the correct answer.

    I would be amazed if he played again for city as he walks for free at the end of his contract.

    Cheick Diabate and Lewis Wilson on loan to Bideford

    Yep, the ideal centre back too. He has grown over lockdown and is a giant at 6ft2. Would not be surprised to see him come into first team reckoning soon.

    National League Play off final

    Should be at least 4-0 to Harrogate. I hope those missedchsnces dont come back to haunt them in the second half.

    Ollie Watkins

    The best outcome for us is that Brentford go up and Ollie is sold in January. I believe we have a promotion bonus due if they go up. No idea how much though.
