My dad's a Devon man and Exeter would have been his closest team. But this would be a good place to pick up a win, it'll be tough but I have a sneaking suspicion we'll rattle em. 2-0 town.

Brave... we haven't won a league game at Sid James's Park since 86. Then a nice 3-0.... a repeat would provide a certain symmetry, Yeovil 3-0, Argyle 3-0

Lingy played for Exeter that day, Lou was obviously impressed enough to sign him.

The big sporting event in Exeter tomorrow is the egg chasing, when the Chiefs take on Herman Munster. I'd hazard a guess if the capacity had not been reduced Devon and Cornwall OB, would not have allowed it to happen, what with the potential for Limerick, Waterford hurling rivalry overspilling on to the streets as we'd have probably taken 700,, some of whom would be Power loyalists.

Only the second league game I won't have gone to so far today, the other being Morecambe when I was in Spain.  That surely means a win.

Shame I can't make it today, only a handful left before I leave for France, Notts County should be the last I get to.

Hopefully Woolery can become an Exeter specialist.

The awful weather will make it an interesting, probably dreadful game. I'd be happy with a point

I see Exeter Chiefs are playing Munster at 3:15 in the Champions League egg chasing. I wonder if that may negatively affect the volume of crowd? Will certainly be interesting in the City centre!

2-0 loss today.

Realistically,  think anything we can get out of this game will be a bonus.   Seems the more that Twine is played the more people rave about him,  I like him but feel up until now he has had too limited game time.   Is it time to throw him in at the deep end ?, we've got to take the gamble sooner or later, only problem is,  is that would Power sell him on at the first 'average' offer ?.
Anyway back today's game,  fair play to all those travelling in this weather,  especially those without tickets.
Hoping for a result,  Assuming he gets the chance, maybe a Twine hattrick, Got to keep the faith. C'mmon you reds !!..

Pre match proselytizing in George's Meeting House.
Too many rugger buggers in evidence today.

Maybe not that surprised to read that Exeter have never played above the 3rd tier.

The visit here back in March should still be fresh in PB's mind.
Hopefully he won't end up as the clot in the clotted cream.

A contrast in continuity today as well.
We might have 3 or 4 of the same starters from the last game.
They could have 6 or 7.

A steady draw would be very good.
Completing a Devon double would be excellent.

Is that a permanent move or a temporary work secondment?  Whereabouts?

Exeter sit currently in 2nd place having lost just 2 games in the league so far (a 3-0 home defeat to Lincoln and a narrow 1-0 away loss to old manager Tisdales MKD) scoring 22 goals and conceding 12 in the process their league form this season is WWDWLLWWWDWD with their home form this season WDLWWW.

Their leading scorer so far this season is yet again Jayden Stockley with 8 league goals, (defender) Pierce Sweeney with 4 and the 2 well travelled players Jonathen Forte and Nicky Law on 3 each.

They have just one ex Swindon player in their squad, Lee Holmes the former Swindon loanee back 13 years ago.

The only Town player who has played for then is James Dunne who had 3 season with Exeter when they were in L1.

Luke McCormick will no doubt be barracked by the Exeter fans with songs about him being a murderer as he always has to face when playing them.

Over all in games between Swindon and Exeter Swindon have the upper hand with a 58% win rate with 40 wins 29 draws and 26 defeats.

In matches between the 2 sides at St James Park we have a 46% win rate with 14 wins 16 draws and 19 defeats since our first match there in 1920.

Exeter have only beaten us 3 times in the last 17 matches there although the last one was last season in a 3-1 defeat early in Browns reign.

Rumours are that Doughty and Nelson could return to the squad giving Brown a full compliment of players for the first time in his Swindon career what with Conroy and Woolery coming through Tuesdays game, whether any of those 4 will start is a different matter. Woolery must be eager to start having scored against them in both fixtures last season for us.

We have been so inconsistant this season with some great wins on our travels at Yeovil and Plymouth yet some awful defeats such as the ones at Crewe and Lincoln.

The weather down this way today is wet and very windy so that will probably mean that our outlet of long balls from McCormick may not be ideal and we will be forced into playing it on the deck all game.

Exeter fans on their forum are super confident with almost all of them predicting a very very easy win for Exeter, with 4 goal wins mentioned. The last time home fans were that confident was the Yeovil fans and look what happened there Wink

I work in a ski resort in the winter, will be the 14th year I've been doing it.  I'm up in Val Thorens, highest resort in Europe, working in the highest official Guinness pub in the world.
