Only 5 days until the derby. Fingers crossed Blackman and Diabate are good to play.

I know Argyle have a couple of injury concerns themselves with Finn Azaz and Mayor both doubtful. Hopefully they're both injured for some time. I was also hoping Schumacher might have left by now but no such luck.

Good feeling about this one. Won't be there but will be watching on the box. A late 2-1 victory and GC will be crowned King Gary 🤴

Hopefully X Grecian "Dan the Man Green" will recall him back to Villa and then send him out to us as a Xmas pressie !

Trivia question (I don't know the answer, but somebody will!):

When was the last time ECFC played 2 consecutive league games in front of bigger (combined) crowds? Say, 50,000?

I'd guess some time in Division 3 (South), if ever.

After a quick trawl through the "Complete Record" book the best I could find:
09/10/1948 Walsall [h] 10,844
16/10/1948 Notts County [a] 37,647
TOTAL 48491

Have also had a trawl through "The Bible" and I will raise you -
27/3/1948 Norwich (A) 24,755
29/3/1948 Bournemouth (A) 24,000
TOTAL 48,755
Very few occasions over 40k though. :)

Only single games but some info here on the Grecian Archive - https://grecianarchive.exeter.ac.uk/items/show/5296

FA Cup highest combined total I can find is:-
Man Utd (A) 08/01/05 = 67,551
Man Utd (H) 19/01/05 = 9,033

= 76,584
