Bros wrote:This may seem a bit daft but I think it all started before the game. The Colchester stewards had herded us into a small section of the stand probably underestimating the numbers. So by the time half a dozen men came in at 5 to 3 it was pretty full. They tried to sit in the cordoned off area and when they were told to move they started mouthful off with plenty of the f and c words. After 10 minutes the police got them to sit down in front of us. After a few more minutes of abusing the stewards they turned their attention to the players especially after the goals. After half time when they were late back presumably after more pints they started again on the players particularly Macca who was up and down the wing in front of us. The abuse seemed to pass to others.
I don't know if anyone knows who these guys were, I don't recall them from previous away games. Perhaps they are just glory hunters



As I said earlier, with a gallon of ale inside them they turn into total rissoles. They'd berate Messi if he played for us and miss placed a pass.

Does 60's represent his age, or the number of Asbos he's got?

careful andy, you’ll be accused of being evans’ love child if you’re not careful :lol:

I can't believe this thread has produced so much comment. SE was out of order, the fans who booed the players were out of order. It is time to draw a line under it.

"Steve Evans has reignited the debate over whether Exeter City striker Reuben Reid dived to win a penalty against Mansfield Town last season".

It's a shame they didn't have this retrospective banning for diving at the time that has now seen Shaun Miller banned. Reid would certainly have got a ban.

I watched the video interview yesterday and it didn't come across that that he was having a go at Stags fans. That is the problem with taking one sentence completely out of context. What he was doing was basically bigging up Exeter as a club, which he does with every club, so as not to give the opposition any extra incentive to beat us. He's always done this.

Sorry Martin but his quoted comments in that article are clearly another dig at stags fans.

I think he was afforded to be at or near the bottom of the table for periods at the start last year with not one piece of criticism to him and his players. That is top class supporters who can see a bigger picture.


He's saying the stick he's had means we can't see the bigger picture and we're clearly not 'top class supporters'.

If that isn't what he means then he needs to be careful what he says as that is what it implies.

I'm getting fed up of this. A handful boo'd after a dreadful display. Thats all... what about everyone else who has and is backing him all the way.

Did Tisdale have the biggest budget in Exeters history last season ?
Thought not.

Personally speaking, I think a manager who isn't picking up results is much more likely to get a bit more leeway from me if:
- They are trying playing decent football
- I can see that the manager has a plan
- The manager is a reasonable and honest chap
- Hasn't squandered the wage budget

Sorry Steve, when Exeter were struggling early on last season the supporters wanted Paul Tisdale out, he turned it around and is now a legend. Instead of going on about other teams concentrate on the one you are employed to worry about.

Having said all that, SE is still the one for me, says a little too much at times but he has certainly livened things up which makes me want to go and watch again after years of dragging myself to Field Mill in the hope of something happening. Early days, if Steve can't sort it for this season do you really think a new manager could?

Exeter fans wanted him out last year! They put him on notice to terminate his contract which he's working now... they're trying to tie him down to a new deal now
