Sparkes and Verma leave

players move on and better ones come in, its football, we have been at the bottom for two seasons for a reason so clearly a new squad is needed. I agree; they're just common or garden National League players at the end of the day neither that good nor that bad ~ good luck to both of them ....... an...

Sparkes and Verma leave

players move on and better ones come in, its football, we have been at the bottom for two seasons for a reason so clearly a new squad is needed. But that's the problem Zippy - better players don't come in. How many times have we got excited about new players and then after a few weeks into the seas...

Brucie V Dave - This time its personal!! ;)

In a nutshell, off the field, Eastleigh are over-performing/doing very well but on the field last season, they most definitely under-performed. I think the point about Eastleigh is that through their investment in non football related activities they have underpinned the club's financial performanc...

Brucie V Dave - This time its personal!! ;)

All we need is a LOCAL HERO... In fact I believe we might have one already; what's 'is name? George somebody.. George Osborne? George Clarke? When he sees enough games and falls in love with the club then hears the (fake) news that Donald Trump is going to offer big money to buy Plainmoor and turn ...

Season tickets

Woking are offering their Early Bird season tickets for just £99 and have currently sold 1400. Wonder how many have been sold at TQ1 to date? Hmmm ...... that suggests to me that Woking are making the same mistake as we did last season. They have been reported as having financial difficulties, so a...

F A Trophy

When all is said and done, SuperNickyWroe is spot on. Right now, where would we rather be? Where United are? Or where York are? The fact that the final was between York and Macclesfield suggests that teams going for promotion didn't put the F.A. Trophy high on their list of priorities. In fact, Macc...

Andy Candy - Compliance Manager

:goodpost: Er ..... will you be sharing an office with Andrew ........ ?? :whistle: With all the negativity surrounding the club, and also on here, Andy's Forum posts show that he has been working positively on a voluntary basis to secure the future of our club. It is good news that he has been app...

Exeter playoff

Of course, nobody could accuse you of possi...

Hartlepool Fan

I can still remember Roy MacF as manager - he signed good players but couldn't get them to play. As a manager he was absolutely hopeless. I actually felt sorry for the bloke - from an international career to being absolutely lambasted by some of the old stagers in the enclosure and grandstand. I ca...

Hartlepool Fan

Yes, he was more of a success at Pool than here where he never really took off after that blistering start as you say maybe partly due to Roy Mac Remember another game v Pool in 82? when they finished with 8 men, two sent off for fighting with each other We still struggled to win it 3-2 ! Think it ...

Hartlepool Fan

I was sorry to read Poolierob's post about the troubles at Hartlepools. I knew there were problems, but not as serious as posted. Another decent club with a proud history run into the ground through disastrous management off the field. I remember a home game against Hartlepool late in the season. I ...

Expectations for next season

There is another thread on this forum devoted to the need of maintaining vigilance and that is Merse's most valuable contribution to the debate because he gets people talking about TUFC. Yes - I totally agree with you on that point. So at least we do sing in unison from one page of the hymn book .....

Expectations for next season

Merse - your long diatribe above which I haven't ploughed through (life's too short) doesn't answer my response. Now put the money where your mouth is - what is Kevin Nicholson's budget in £££s for next season, and to make it easy for you, tell us in £££s just two National League sides that have sm...

Expectations for next season

I could answer that question, tomo. I'm pretty sure Merse could too but what would be the point? You couldn't prove we were right or wrong and neither could we without getting somebody into trouble. If you choose not to believe something then that's totally your right but that kind of objection has...

The Play Offs

Like Hector, I am not a huge fan of the Play Offs but I accept that it maintains interest for clubs halfway down the table until the end of the season. Back in the 'good old days' (Wivel will remeber them) of two up, two down, interest tended to peter out for most clubs by about February so yes, tha...
