I’m with you

Just think how much an away win would change the whole mood of the club going into Saturdays game against Coventry

There should be 150+, though it looks like the weather will be grim again. The last journey back from St. James Park was not particularly pleasant and those who made the trip to Carlisle on Saturday may be having second thoughts of another motorway trip.

Forecast Summary for Exeter

Today
Wednesday will be a cold and windy day with sunny spells and scattered blustery showers. The showers will be heavy at times with hail and thunder possible and may give some wintry flurries over the moors.

Tonight
Remaining cold with blustery showers moving across the region on a strong westerly wind. Showers heavy at times with hail and thunder possible and, perhaps, giving snow over the moors.

I'll stick with my 1-2, with Reid and Doidge both hitting the net.

Always good to come on here and see some optimism. Surely if we are going to survive we have to take some points on the road and tonight would be a great time to start. Its tough given the fact games have come thick and fast for us in relatively remote places but a point tonight would be a real boost for Saturday (which we need given Coventry's form).

Hopefully if the conditions are windy/blustery we will put more pressure on Exeter's back line with high balls than we apparently did at Carlisle.

Exeter 2 v FGR 0

Quite simply, we don't create enough chances, especially away from home, to win many games. Although our squad has improved, tactically I don't think we are getting it right; with four creative/attacking players in Brown, Grubb, Reid and Doidge, we should be getting shots on target.

v Carlisle - 53% possession, not a single shot on target
v Swindon - 48% possession, one shot on target.
v Lincoln - 55% possession, two shots on target

So three shots on target in the last three away games :shock:

Come on boys, prove me wrong. Pllllllleeeeaaaasssseeee :roll:

I’ll go for an away win on the basis Cooper has just read SkunkMan’s post and seen the error of his ways and now understands the basics of playing to win a football match.

Update:
There were no perfect forecasts in Swindon v FGR match but three correct 2-0 Exeter results.
Congrats to Skunk Man, Dursley Dog & FGR123.
Their names will be moved upwards to next column.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
