As Wellens said on the highlights show last night, the most one sided play-off final since Preston v Swindon. I was impressed by Marshall when he came on, an assist and plenty of good crosses. Moxeys challenge was ridiculous but Exeter would still have lost with 11 on the pitch

I quite enjoyed it, I guess I slightly favoured Northampton because I've not seen us lose there, and parking is easy if us fans are allowed in Smiley

But Exeter looked as pathetic as we did last visit(s) to Wembley. So Banker, we know how it feels.

Actually, Exeter have lost 3 out of the last 4 po finals. at least ours were spread out.

onwards to next week. FFS PUP

I know the spectacles get rose tinted when you watch your own team but I thought that was pretty awful watching, in terms of standard of football.  Northampton looked a better version of Flitcrofts team with us and Exeter looked like us against Preston.
I agree, it was a match between 2 pretty average sides, one better trained at their own brand of football than the other was.

Exeter hampered by a shoddy goalkeeper on a par with Moore and RCC for dithering ineptitude. Exeter also for a team managed by a defender could not defend.

They also were dire in front of goal, Northampton will struggle this coming season without huge investment in the team IMO.

But then its worked well for Wycombe playing that style in L1 so who knows.

Exeter would have lost with 12 on the pitch,  woeful performance.   Wouldn't mind seeing Goode or Oliver in a Swindon shirt, Goodes throw ins are a major bonus for any team.

For those of you that did the same as me and took advantage of Skys football channels offer of  £18 a month on a 31 day rolling contract,  ýnless you wish to continue through the summer now is the time to cancel,   did mine this morning,  subscription runs out on August 1st, enough time to see the last games of the season.   Must admit only really purchased it to watch the play off games,  but have watched quite a few games in the premiership.  Must be the only time I have been able to say that I got good value from Sky !!.

Presumably, had Exeter secured promotion, That Nestor Lorenzo Heade would point to this (alongside Bayern's success in the bundesliga) as further evidence of the benefits of community ownership.

Saw the highlights on quest. Exeterís GK was MOTM, in my humble opinion. Sure four went past him but bloody hell, could have been double that, as for their defence, where was it?

Admittedly their defence was shocking but I thought he was awful, didn't come to claim crosses, his handling was terrible, almost every shot he saved was straight at him.

If it was 1 foot to the left or right of him it went in, even Exeter fans were slating him as they have most of the season when he has played. His attempt at the 4th was comical.

Northamptons keeper wasn't much better but has so little to do all game.

Makes me so glad we had Benda this season, easily the best keeper in L2 by a country mile.

I mostly agree, however, those in front of him didnít cover themselves in any form of glory by going down fighting and the chap sent off needs a good kicking from his peers, no need for that tackle. My point indirectly was the saves he made, 0-4 could easily have been 0-6 or 0-8

Exeterís keeper is a clown - maybe not RCC levels of clownishness but a clown nonetheless. No wonder the defence was all piss and panic with Krusty between the sticks.

They were saves any keeper would make it doesnít mean he had a good game, itís the ones that he didnít make that matter. Take RCC or even Belford, some of our fans rated them as they made a few saves, ultimately the saves that they made any pro keeper would make whereas as if you look at some of the stops Benda made they wouldnít have got near them.

Exeter had a good few years of goalkeeping stability with Christy Pym or Bobby Olejnik as number 1 with James Hamon as the settled back-up.

I know Maxted played yesterday but Lewis Ward's performance at the CG this season was one of the poorest I've seen in a good while and he largely got away with it.
