    40,000 will put a lot of pressure on Cov, and I think it will do us good to go in as the underdog. This will feel like the Cambridge final all over again. Just bought three (y)

    Ethan Ampadu off to Chelsea

    I think John Terry was the last player to make it as a 1st team regular, looks like a Bridge to far for Ethan. We may get to see him the Checkatrade before being sent on loan to Eredivisie

    Judgement day is upon us. The official Blackpool v ECFC match day thread

    On the train up. Today will forever be known as St Ollie's Day. Not because of the bufoon who managed Gargs & Blackpool to promotions, but because of young Ollie who will make that massive Wembley pitch his own. A 2 nil win with Ollie getting both and putting a few million on his transfer value

    Last band you saw live

    Saw The Wedding Present a couple of months ago, found them pretty disappointing. Suede were on the same bill and were as always fantastic live. Off to see Super Furry Animals again on Friday, playing their first two albums back to back.

    So Taggy will stand up and make his "state of the nation" speech, Weiler will probably back this up. 1st fan question should be to ask him to stand down as it's clearly too much for him, but I'm sure he would have made his excuses and left by then.

    The Lion just needs to take out Tisdale like a wildebeest on the Serengeti on a match day to get press attention.

    Total Apathy

    I haven't time to do the maths, but I'd wager that Tisdale's last 5 years are nearer to McNab's. Would you take 5 years of McNab?

    Ground redevelopment?

    Providing the club have done their homework, a 3G training pitch should be a priority. Maidstone earn £100k-£150K per year from renting their 3G pitch and if we can save money by not having to rent a winter training facility, I can't see what the objection is. At worst it would be revenue...

    To me it appears that notice has been served but there is no other contract renegotiations required. My guess is that any negotiations will take place when he has a year left to run on the contract, or maybe longer? That other long serving manager, Arsene Wenger only has 8 month's left on his...

    Election turnout

    No need, just give them a discount coupon off the price of a game if they vote. A stamp addressed envelope won't do the trick. The issue is engaging as many as possible, so a bit of lost revenue on a game is nothing in the grander scheme.

    I think the answer is that unlike other clubs, none of the board put any cash into the club, they're all good mates. So there is no pressure to justify investment. So this is down to the BOS and having read Overand's comments you know that status quo will continue. The next notion to actually...

    I understand this, but by the time the gears of The Trust crank into action, we could be sunk. I've no beef with Tisdale, but he seems lost. It'll be best for all parties if we parted ways, and I guess he would be fairly honourable and it wouldn't cost 2 years salary.

    I'm just saying that letting his contract run down could be far more expensive than just terminating it now. I can't think of one club that would consider the course of action we are taking, the stakes are too high not to act to remove him. Surely we could have a Trust fundraiser if we still...

    Why is it so difficult to sack him? Too much bean counting and not enough action. Compensation is £250k or 1 x Tom Nicholls transfer. It would be payable over 2 years. If he got another job I'm assuming compensation will then cease when he takes up his new job? If we drop out the league, we...

    Bang on. It's not for one of us to step up AP, the role should be advertised. Get a decent recruitment firm to vet candidates, otherwise we end up with buffoons like Chorlton & Wolfenden, both brought in by Tagg.

    Not really Ian, both Byll & Terry got 300+ votes although no one knew much about them a couple of months ago. The amounts of posters on exeweb is much fewer than it used to be, so I think they did okay considering the archaic rules for canvassing. They were also up against candidates that had a...
