The National League Form Table.

I distinctly remember someone saying that from the day GO took over, we’d need to average 1.3points a game to reach 51. So basically 4 points for every 3 games. I’ve been judging things by that marker ever since. The Orient game represented the end of the 4th three-game run, and saw us on 14 points ...

Sutton united V Torquay United 21/11/17

I still cannot believe that this issue will prevent a side being allowed to take their place in either the lpay-offs or the EFL should they achieve promotion. The subject would be taken to law and the football authorities know that whatever those reactionary opponents to progress think; they would ...

Sutton united V Torquay United 21/11/17

After Solihull the other three to be relegated don't seem at all obvious unless someone hits real financial trouble. If from what I heard, and I understand it correctly, the relegated clubs may well indeed contain a surprise. It goes like this. There are sides competing for play off spots that have...

Sutton united V Torquay United 21/11/17

Great result. Was planning to go, but made the pact with myself I’d only make the effort if we won one of the two previous home games. I just knew this would happen, and it wouldn’t have happened if I’d been there. What’s important now is Saturday. It’s all very well having the odd good result, but ...

Does passion come before or after?

I know you said not local Andy, but I’ll get the ball rolling for you. I was introduced to TUFC as part of the Frank Prince Football in the Community scheme back at the end of the 92/93 season. Went along to a game (Hereford, 0-0, bloody awful game) and had the whole stadium tour, meet the players e...

Cash offer ? Call me thick but I assume that's a transfer fee. Shoot me down in flames but when was last transfer fee we paid. Bodin? Exactly that - it’s all on the BBC now. Kind of dispels the theory of GI running the club into the ground if they are working on paying fees. Unless the fee is compl...

Manset would be a dream ticket if he can rediscover his previous form. Saw him cause us all manner of bother at Hereford a few years back before his move to Reading. Absolute beast, power and pace in abundance and plenty of technical ability too.

Torquay United v Maidstone United 11/11/17

Wasn’t there today so can’t truly comment, but from the games I’ve seen Murphy gets a bit of a disservice on here. I don’t think it’s coincidental that after a run of improving form, the games he misses turn into disappointing defeats. Yes the goal return is poor, but I think his movement and “putti...

The whole Fondop saga made me wonder how hard we really looked at levels below. He was quite below the radar, but once you looked a little deeper into his history he had good scoring records and has shown for Guiseley that he can handle this level. So, his attitude may not have been right but he’s n...

Truro ground share back on?

Only get a quarter of people turn up that we do. Can't see all of them wanting to travel 200 mile round trip. Ok closer for away fans though. Nothing else closer for them. I assume if promoted then stadium has to be a certain standard. Is that same standard for national south as it is for national ...

Torquay v Hartlepool 28/10/17

Although this fixture looks winnable on paper, my concern is how we deal with the 3-game week this time around. Last time we were in this situation, we played a high energy game at Dagenham that unfortunately didn’t yield what it deserved; a high energy game against Maidenhead that laid the foundati...

5:10ish. Decide for yourself
Nope. 100% didn’t, you can see it from the replay that it’s on the line, but not over it

Ebbsfleet United v Torquay united 24/10/17

Consummate away performance last night really. Never dominated, but worked exceptionally hard and were solid and organised. Nobody can argue we didn’t deserve to win - we had maybe 3 or 4 clear cut chances, whereas the Home side only had the first half header from Kedwell and an incident in the seco...

Was Murphy, and in his defence it came at him rather quickly. Should have done better though
