    Article on BBC about Exeter fans funding a players wages for fourth season in a row http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/19327436 Our own much-maligned (on here at least) Shrimperstrust funds youth team wages I believe but what struck me was the Exeter managers comments about fans: "The key...

  8. Ref Watch .............. Barnet

    A win tonight and we are in the playoffs for sure. Normally a cause for celebration, but things seem a little flat to me given that three months ago today we were sitting proudly at the top of the League and very short odds for automatic promotion. Who wouldn't have taken our current situation...
  9. Ref Watch ....... Bradford City

    The referee for tonight's "must win" match is Graham Scott from Abingdon in Oxfordshire. He is in his 4th season as a Football League referee and makes his third visit to Roots Hall. (It would be his fourth, but the second didn't happen due to the appropriately Antarctic weather at the time.)...

  11. Ref Watch ...... Morecambe

    The referee for tomorrow's cut price bonanza is Graham Scott from Abingdon in Oxfordshire. He is in his 4th season as a Football League referee and makes his second visit to Roots Hall.

    Memory Lane When our ship shall leave the river bank

    Its timbers brave the main, Our port shall gleam through mists of time, And beckon back again, Then each adventurer shall feel, As onward strains the eager keel, From the School beside the church and sea The speeding wind of memory. And some shall picture pounding ball On turf of sodden field...

    Some of my thoughts

    England Flatter To Deceive

    NOTHING FOR ENGLAND TO SHOUT ABOUT Forget about the result, this was not a good night for England. Fabio Capello has much to ponder before he makes his final squad selection for the World Cup. A 3-1 victory over a side of Mexico’s quality is a fine result on paper, but the performance that went...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Southend 0-0 Exeter

    League 2 football for us next year then :'( Never really threatened and could probably count the amount of shots on target on one hand. Nothing on the bench to change the game, Scott Spencer the only attacking option on the bench. Paterson and Vernon didn't click, Paterson hardly ever ran onto...
