We were, Simon Mayo read out on his Radio 1 show that Exeter City fans were singing that song at least two years before United fans started singing it.Thing is, I remember us singing this ironically at away defeats in 1988 or so, well before Man U started singing it.
Not just lost but well beaten and yes plenty to be positive about.Just a gentle reminder that in the first three games of last season we had collected just half the points we have to date and had lost 3-0 to Leyton Orient.
Here to be positive.......
Yep...I know the club doesn't spend money it hasn't got..BUT it's taken us,,is it, 10 years and so much heartbreak, to get us bac into this league... Seasons can be defined by the first month ish , to let Taylor struggle for depth.. seems... Just bloody foolish..Agree with this. The first goal Sparkesy allows the cross to be delivered too easily, but Hartridge also just leaves Smith and should have picked him up.
2nd goal, like you say Tim has lost his midfield runner, but Sweens (like Sparkes for the first) must do more to stop the cross. At least slide to try and block the cross. Two really soft goals which recently we don't generally concede.
Not our best day, but we move on to a big one on Tuesday, which I would consider our first 'real' League One test against Wycombe. I think this game will really give us an indication of where we currently stand.
I have to say that I think our starting 11 seems like it will definitely be able to compete, but with the 5 subs rule I worry that our lack of depth, especially up top will hinder us at this moment in time. Interesting again that in both his club interview and Radio Devon interview post game you can sense that MT's frustrations are brewing with regard to how thin our squad is and the lack of signings so far. He seems to be really pushing for more help from the club which you can understand.
Taylor has money at his disposal, he just can't find the players. He is being backed on many fronts, the pitch has been sorted, the Cat and Fiddle redevelopment is underway. It wouldn't be foolish to splash money we don't have on new signings, it would be bleddy suicidal, and could totally negate all the stability that we have striven to obtain.Yep...I know the club doesn't spend money it hasn't got..BUT it's taken us,,is it, 10 years and so much heartbreak, to get us bac into this league...
