Should Nicholson be sacked

Surely now is the time after the realisation today that there will be no new signings for everyone to get 100% behind Nico, Hererra and the 16 players. It may be a slim hope but they are our only hope of getting out of this mess. They are getting no help from above so 2+16 along with us supporters ...

Torquay v Eastleigh 21.3.17

I'm with Dutchgull. Football is supposed to be entertainment and spectators will not turn out to watch games where the whole object seems to be to frustrate. But Mellow Yellow is right. The 'keeper can choose which side of the goal he takes goal kicks and the ref can do nothing about it. It has been...

MOTM - Eastleigh

Luke Young
Jared Hodgkiss - ditto Mellow Yellow's posting
L. Rowe-Turner

Only three from me, but you couldn't fault the effort of the players in dreadful conditions.

New Players/Loan

Even if no additional players are to be brought in for the final ten or so games of the season, I hope at least Jared Hodgkiss loan can be extended as he has been a useful signing. He has played well at right back and he's vocal. Surely, there must be some money left in the Players Fund ?? Does anyo...

FAT Harrop Threats

He should learn to develop a thick skin like Fatty Evans, former manager of Crawley, former manager of Rotherham and now manager of Mansfield, and subjected to chants from all around Plainmoor and wherever he goes. The chants also add he's a b*stard ...... Nobody would ever call Geoff Harrop that .....

New Players/Loan

Both Maidstone & Woking have brought in 21 year old strikers from league sides. One of the players is from Bristol Rvrs so if he is any good, you would have thought Lee Mansell would have tipped Nicho. I suspect Dave's reading of what's happening at Plainmoor is near the truth. If correct, the playe...

Torbay Council

Just found out that Torquay United are due to be discussed at Overview and Scrutiny meeting at the Town Hall tomorrow night. I understand that it is currently number 9 on the agenda. Public can attend but not speak. Thanks for this. It's a useful reminder for those of us who don't waste their time ...

Torquay V Tranmere

A hard earned point tonight and that has to be the sort of effort and determination that the fans and Nicho have to ask for the remaining nine games of the season if we are to stay up. A real team effort tonight and the 'team bonding' at the start of the second half seemed to have some effect. An en...

Torquay V Tranmere

Apparently, the Tranmere players and staff are staying at the Grand Hotel for two nights. A world of difference from our away travel arrangements ! Yes - I agree with Arcadia. Even if Keating doesn't start, I hope he is given longer that 5/10 minutes to show what he can do.

Nicho backed

The definition of 'stupidity' contains no reference to either good nature or generosity it is defined as behaviour that shows a lack of good sense or judgement: I rest my case. Leaving the running of something you finance to idiots like Simon Baker and Bill Phillips is the very epitome of a lack of...

Can we Survive? 10 Games Remaining.

I also played the Lucy points prediction game and came up with a final total of 53 points. But that was before the Barrow game and the Sutton and Guisley defeats. I have so far predicted four games ....... and ALL have been wrong ! So much for the unpredictability of football ! For what it's worth, ...

Nicho backed

Some people have very short, or very selective, memories. Without financial input from Paul & Thea Bristow, TUFC would have gone under five or six seasons ago. For starters, the old wooden Grandstand would have been condemned and it was Thea who stepped in with the money for a new Grandstand in memo...

Should Nicholson be sacked

The answer depends on what or who will replace him. With a heavy heart I would say that yes he probably should be sacked now if the right person replaces him but I would not blame him for our current situation. He has made mistakes but these are the types of mistakes that a rookie manager should be...

Torquay United v Guiseley

Just waiting for Southampton Gull to logon and begin the defence now....... I'd like to be able to defend Nicho, but after today's second half performance, I can't. After last week's fiasco, he had to make changes and the only change made was to bring in Gallifuoco in place of the 'not 100% fit' Ho...
