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

    I dare say the UK is somewhere near the forefront of vaccine development; at the same time, we'd do well to remember that, according to our PM, we're at the forefront of pretty much everything – the reality of course is rather different. That aside, while there may well be a vaccine at some...

    Weymouth vs Exeter friendly match day thread. 7pm ko

    Ain't the correct parlance "We go again...', as opposed to 'We go on...'?!

    Obituary Thread

    That's my recollection too. As I recall, Hill was a boxing fan who became friendly with Minter and invited him to join the board.

    Former world middleweight champion, and Exeter City director [during the Cliff Hill years], Alan Minter. RIP.

    Ollie Watkins

    I don't doubt they use scouts, but at Brentford it's all about the data; would imagine they rely much more on the stats than the opinion of any individuals.

    Ollie Watkins

    Why would any selling club agree to a maximum sell-on clause? It would be completely counterintuitive to say the more profit you go on to make from the player we're about to sell to you the less of it we want. I don't pretend to know what the situation is but would be astonished if we'd signed...

    Inappropriate signings

    Was always a little surprised Tis went for Lenny Pidgeley, given when you Google him one of the first things that comes up is a picture of him being carried out of a London nightclub...

    Presume Harley remains living in Bristol. Is he still at MKD?

    Steve Neville stocky?! In a crowded field, this is one of your most ridiculous assertions yet. Nevs had a similar physique to Kyle Minogue, while, coincidentally, his bubble perm wasn't too far removed from the one Ms Minogue sported when she resided in Ramsey Street.

    Him and his son. Have followed Wilf for a year or two on Twitter and, as I recall, they go home and away. Would be surprised if they're not on ExeWeb!

    Wonder if a player-manager role at Weymouth might be of interest to Deano.

    Ethan Ampadu off to Chelsea

    Absolutely not. I just get frustrated that some people are so quick to lump all media outlets in together and pour scorn on them. It's absolutely right that some of the stuff we're subjected to these days is criticised. However, at the same time, it's only fair to acknowledge when an outlet such...

    If you watch the full reveal video, Ben Seymour is wearing white boots, while Jake Taylor is the only person donning a red pair.

    Get a grip. The shirt we wore in our championship season didn't even have a badge on it.

    20-21 new shirts

    Quite. It will take a little getting used to, but I like it. Moreover, if we'd done this in reverse and gone from this shirt, with the sponsor's logo seamlessly integrated, to a shirt with a huge purple patch plonked in the middle of it I've little doubt the same people who are moaning now...

    Ollie Watkins

    Dare I suggest Brentford probably know more about stats / analytics than any other football club in the country. This TED Talk with Brentford's MD Rasmus Ankersen is fascinating: There are a few businesses in Exeter which are heavily invested in the analysis of sporting stats – I forget...
