Exeter are one of the top sides in the Premiership with a brilliant D of Rugby.  We are slowly pulling ourselves out of the doldrums with a new head coach who is trying extremely hard to develop a proper and meaningful squad and squad mentality.  he's giving evryone a chance and with it will come the disappointments and the frustrations.  But it is a plan and a good one in terms of long term strategy.
Lets be patient even though it was a disappointing result.

Nothing to disagree with there.

Not too bothered about losing to Exeter at home , everyone is going to get a tough game there , but , am I right to be a bit irritated that it was us that kicked it out to end the game ? ,

What difference does it make if you let in more points , surely backs against the wall , clock in the red is exactly the time to run through some drills to get you up the pitch and try and create a scoring opportunity .

Pretty sure every time we lose we try and make excuses for ourselves. Seems a long way off when other teams fans will be saying things like “Didn’t expect anything going to the Stoop anyway...” etc etc.

Seems a bit like we are the fat kid at sports day. Well done for turning up, but you know there won’t be any medals at the end of the day.

We played the team that won the Anglo-Welsh last year. We lost to them on their home ground. You'll excuse me if I just shrug and move on.

Quite agree with most of the sentiments expressed. They are a superb team and won  the equivalent competition last year and we lost to them away. Where's the story? Friday is the test for me...
