10th

I said 10th - voted top half but i'm starting to worry now. Its mad how a good season can change. A month ago we were 5th/6th with games in hand over the teams around us but now its the other way and we're just slipping into nothingness.

The drop in results is mainly due to the loan system, whereby we lost some of our best players in the New Year. It can utterly upset the standard of play as in our case.  It would be good for the lower leagues if a full season contract was in force, so that loan players couldn't be recalled by parent clubs, but that won't happen will it.

No, so maybe teams should recruit accordingly.  If you use loan players, maybe have them as the sprinkles on top, not the backbone of your success.

Unfortunately this season we didn't have a lot of choice. Hopefully next season we will be able to build a team that isn't quite so reliant on loans, or if we are adamant of going down that route, make sure there are clauses which don't allow recalls on Season Long Loans (I am not sure if bigger teams would even contemplate such a thing)

Taking all things into consideration AND I mean ALL things but at the same time trying to avoid the ‘look where we were back in August’ type statement I think that if we end up mid table with Garner still in charge that will be like having a nicest iced bun you could ever imagine. However, the cherry on top is thwarting Pee Lower from raising our club to the ground with no come back whatsoever.

Every week we grow stronger, that bastard and his goons must be seething even more. That for me makes our season a success. There is more, I think we can still make the play offs, though I feel that we’ll lose in the semi’s, which for me will be a blessing. I don’t think we would win at Wembley in the final, I Just don’t.

Next season in L2 we should with the right recruitment and a no points deduction from any sanctions be favourites for promotion with a well put together squad with our own players and a smattering of loans who if recalled wouldn't adversely effect our promotion push.

So to summarise, fuck you Pee Lower, we will be around long after your sorry corpse has rotted into compost or been BBQ’d to ashes. That is success.

Voted 'Top Half'. In other news; have a guess where we finish in this list of 'League 2 squad value':

That list is ridiculous. Apparently Jonathan Grounds is Exeter's most valuable player!

Why is top of the table at the bottom of the list, why have they included loan players, what are the values based upon, pointless clickbait really.

Considering this is the TEF, I thought there would have been the options of either;

  • In Your Mum
or
  • In Your Nan

I guess the TEF has matured after all  Soapy Tit Wank
