Branston to me is the gentle giant, harry went round with his book to get them to sign and Guy at first growled at him so Harry didnt know what to do I said go and ask him again, then all of a sudden he turned round and said"hiya mate do you want me to sign that " then we met him on the stairs a few times on saturday, big bloke, but nice guy very polite and asked harry to meet him in August ! So is he staying then ?
But a comical moment was when harry drpped his marker (permanent) on scott taylor's trouser's Carlisle,Mans, Benyon, Stevens laughing there head off, we stood there with quilt didn;t know where to look ;D but the rest of the team were laughing so what do you do
Did Jon "tourettes" calm down enough to enjoy his curry? fancy hating Exeter that much
On hearing the results, I may have expressed a certain disappointment that OUR club would be denied the increased revenue resulting from a local derby. I may have commented on the recurrent good fortune of our friends from up the road . I may also have mentioned their recurrent poor financial management, their failure to honour their debts and their cleverness in evading the stipulated penalties for such shortcomings. I may have spiced these observations with a little racy language for dramatic effect.
Merse will be pleased to know that at no point did I question the sartorial preferences of their manager. Indeed, most people would recognise that a young manager guiding his team to automatic promotion from League 2 and then to 51 points in League 1 must have something about him, although that kind of points total might see an unlucky manager relegated and a more fortuitous one safe.
His chuntering of the Exeter result was replaced by the price of beer in Torquay pubs.
As regards beer prices, I must point out that it was Chelston who, after counting out the coppers to pay for his round, felt the need to double-check whether my proceeding round had been cheaper – which was extremely unlikely given the carefully-planned itinerary. I must say that his joy at bagging two pints for three pounds and eight shillings (sic) in the Wetherspoons was a sight to behold – the most animated I have seen him since the Wembley stewards had to tell him to sit down after Sillsy’s header hit the net.
not so eloquent on Saturday!! couldn't get more than four letters out of you
Well Cotterill is apparently the bookies favourite as the next Argyle manager at 6-4 on. Not a betting man so don't understand what that means. Have told my Argyle mates ( no sorry not mates but people I know who support Argyle) that there is absolutely no chance as Notts County are a far bigger club than Argyle and they will be in the same division next year.
Paul Jewell was drinking in the Exchange in Ivybridge a few days ago with Sean McCarthy. That could be a maybe.
Apart from that how about Tisdale? I know same division but Exeter are not a big club like Notts County.
As long as it's not Gordon Brown though, he just doesn't know when he's not wanted!

Well basically it means that for every pound you put up as stake money you will only win 75p if you are right.
A rich man could expect to wack a packet on and win a considerable sum, but if you can only afford a fiver, would you risk it to win just £3.75? I don't think I would and I can't even afford a fiver at the moment!
Like most management jobs, the quality of the application list will be matched by the size of the budget available and the parameters of the job given that working with Paul Mariner seems to come with the deal.
thank you for those kind words from merse it was always a privelage to play at plainmoor i just wish id have been selected more but thats what happens in football when you have a clash of personalities and its still happening to this day
