Torquay United v Leyton Orient thread

Cannot get to Plainmoor tomorrow but this is another vital game. I just get the feeling that Gary and Martin are beginning to get the squad to believe in themselves and that results will improve. Since the new management team took over our Home form has been dire with the notable exception of the 4-...

Sutton united V Torquay United 21/11/17

I thought the same Neal. He is not the first Manager to say we are better than Bottom but it is all about converting the chances as we all know and that is the problem. So pleased for Gary and Martin and the players who to a man by the sound of it gave everything last night. Sutton boss said how dif...

The Gaffer

Rjc70 the reason I feel that Murphy and McQuoid are the most disappointing of Owers loan signings is because they are the 2 principal signings in terms of finding the net. Result is one goal each although Murphy has been out injured for a few games. They have not had the impact I had anticipated and...

The Gaffer

I think that in Gary Owers and Martin Kuhl at our level we have two capable men. The problem is the players who have on paper experience and ability but are so short on confidence after a horrendous run that they smell defeat before they set foot on the pitch. Gary Owers knows that the only way to s...

AFC Fylde v Torquay United 18/11/17

Thanks for that report Lucy. How often this season have I read "1st half we where the better team by a country mile" but you do not win games by playing for half the match. I cannot blame Owers for laying into the team after the game. They deserved it by the sound of it. At the end of the day it is ...

National League Attendance Table.

United are 10th in the Table published last Monday 13th November by the Vanarama National League with an average attendance of 1,928.

No surprise Tranmere are top and Boreham Wood 24th and bottom.

Considering our form crowds have held up very well indeed and are a credit to the loyalty of our fans.

Striker

It does look very like Manset. I remember him at Hereford in 2010/2011 before his move to Reading. He has certainly moved about a lot but Martin Kuhl is just the guy to sort his head out because he has ability but needs a strong man to keep him on the straight and narrow. 28 years old we could be hi...

Boycott

Teigngull I live in Teignmouth but I feel it is wrong to desert what seems a sinking ship when there is still some hope.

If I can use an analogy " you discover who are your true friends when you are most in need".

Look at it this way if we all gave up then we would go down.

MOTM - Maidstone

Gowling.An impressive player and a good Captain. Davis. Saw plenty of the ball but final pass let him down but he will know that. Intelligent player. Efete. Very strong and enjoys making surging runs when he sees space in front of him. Reid. Still looks the only player who might score in a truly lig...

Torquay United v Maidstone United 11/11/17

To all those fans not at the game we did not deserve to lose this match. We had 75% of the play and Maidstone scored a good free kick with their only real shot on target. The players gave their all but at present we simply cannot bury the decent chances we create. McQuoid really should have scored w...

Torquay United v Maidstone United 11/11/17

A must win game in my opinion.Maidstone are lying 5th in the table and away from home have won 5 and lost 3 conceding just 9 goals in 8 games. So important to score first. We have reached a point were we really have to start winning at home and lets hope we can prove today that we are good enough. N...

Torquay v Hartlepool 28/10/17

Smash and grab sums it up very well lucy.
Just watched the highlights on the OS and yet again I noticed Reid when on the bi line smashes the ball so hard across the box that Keating had little chance to convert. Calmer calmer Jamie. Final ball must be better.

Torquay v Hartlepool 28/10/17

I would like to make one point about Saturday. When the Hartlepool player sustained a facial injury, possibly a broken nose, soon after half time the delay was at least 3 or 4 minutes for this one stoppage alone. There were 6 substitutions and yet the added time was 4 minutes. In the Premier League ...

Home Form in 2017

Starting with a Home defeat to Boreham Wood on Sat 7th January by a goal to nil we have played 18 Home games winning just 4, drawing 4 and losing 10.Of the 10 losses 7 were by the odd goal. Of the 4 Home wins only 2 have been on a Satu...
