Just a reminder that we might be a bad start from Morecambe away from this list being topped by this man

Sky have picked a real peach to kick off the season

the Joao looked at Jonny (Noodle Vague), Friday, 3 August 2018 17:30 (four months ago) Permalink

Seems like the level of expectancy among Exeter fans is higher than I’ve ever known it, and really the justification seems to be (a) lots of people are relieved Tisdale’s gone, having talked themselves into believing that all and any problems at the club were his fault and (b) Matt Taylor making a series of very popular decisions regarding keeping or releasing players.

I have to keep reminding myself that if these players were that good most of them would have gone somewhere further up the football tree, but I am enjoying the optimism (mine and others’) and we haven’t seen these lads fail yet.

Meanwhile our best player has suffered an ACL tear a day or two before our first game. We are cursed. Tune into Sky to witness the hell for yourself! Only five substitutes named! It's like 2008 out there!

Mr Thompson: Lots of fans fancying Aston Villa to finish top two this year in #bbcefl predictions. I agree. Very few teams bounce straight back, only Newcastle in last two seasons. Looks a weaker league but will still be competitive. Looking forward to it and fancy us.

A win which I think flattered us but I'll take it. Blyth didn't challenge much and I know they've got centre half problems - signing someone already carrying a suspension won't solve them for another few weeks.

Weird they didn't put up more of a fight considering sections of our fans have a conspiracy about them, Morpeth and Wembley so are supposed to be decent (in our new history terms).

I had a very pleasant afternoon on Saturday; 3-1 win which (though by no means a perfect performance) is a good way to start with a new manager. All three of our goals came from debutants: given how reliant we were on Jayden Stockley's goals last year, that's really pleasing. I'm not in the "we're going to piss this tinpot league" place but the performance was coherent enough that my fears of a post-Tisdale upheaval / collapse are allayed for now.

Tim, Monday, 6 August 2018 10:26 (four months ago) Permalink

Can't be 100% sure till kickoff but it looks like Villa might be about to set up with a back 3/5 lookin something like this:

Elmohamady; Hutton; Chester; Elphick; Taylor

Not a one of them can pass, not a one of them can control the ball, several of them can just about break into a job when pushed

Meanwhile our brightest young talent (and star of the pre-season) Andre Green is on the bench

Windsor Davies, Monday, 6 August 2018 18:18 (four months ago) Permalink

*break into a jog ffs

Why the fuck is Steve Bruce still here? I'd sooner have taken the punt on Thierry Henry

Sounds like yet another absolute mess: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45877754. I went there last season (for a dispiriting freezing cold defeat) and found out they'd already gone bust and reformed as a phoenix club a few years ago.

Woke up late with the mother of all hangovers. Finally got to the ground about half an hour after kick off. Obviously all the gates were shut. Spent about 5 minutes banging on the door feeling foolish till I managed to get in, just after FC United scored their third. Sorry Aldo, won’t be FAPing.

First goal really well taken after some incisive play.
Second was pitiful defending resulting in a speculative cross being turned into the net. Came directly from an attacking free kick for us.
Third was us dithering in midfield and hitting a forty yard ball at the keeper which he failed to control.

All in 5 minutes.

People leaving by me.
