Torquay United v Sutton United - 20/02/18

I thought barnes miss was terrible and should have scored. Difference between winning and losing. I wasn't there but have seen the camera video footage if that's good to judge on. 10 yards out should score no question about it Yes - it was a dreadful miss and was probably the difference between thr...

Gary Owers

Personally I think that should it happen we need to start preparing for next season right now. Get a young hungry manager with the drive and skillset to propel a club forwards. A few fit that bill from lower down the pyramid who might be tempted to take on the challenge of reviving a former league ...

Torquay United v Sutton United - 20/02/18

Yet again, we were let down by the wrong formation. No width....... Playing three at the back makes that ridiculous. The whole point of 3-5-2 is to provide width; the problem comes when the wingbacks get on the back foot and it becomes 5-3-2. A loss of width going forward and the midfield becoming ...

Torquay United v Sutton United - 20/02/18

Yet again, we were let down by the wrong formation. No width, predictable corners and free kicks. The Sutton manager chose to 'go for bust' and bring on extra forwards in the last 20 minutes or so. A brave decision - fortune favours the brave. What did Owers do? Bring on a forward .... and take off ...

Torquay United v Dagenham and Redbridge - Matchday thread - 17/02/18

Whilst we were enduring a torrid afternoon at Plainmoor, Wivel's Whitby Town were beating Nantwich Town 2 - 1 to move towards mid-table in the Evostik North. Up the Seasiders !! Wivel - what has happened to the Jarrow Roofing lad who was at Plainmoor for a short time? I haven't noticed his name on t...

Time to be Together if you “support “ Torquay United F.C.

I'm not sure who you think claps the team off, from where I was yesterday, half the fans had already left by the time the whistle went. Why should we not go and watch our football club if we've paid for our season ticket? should we only go when we're winning? Osborne is not the savior, I don't thin...

Survival: Could we do it?

We are one point ahead of my route to survival...just saying ;) Most of us like to look ahead and make predictions. I know I do. But I remember Forever Dave posting last season that football is so unpredictable that it's a futile exercise. And he was proved correct because there were some crazy res...

Presumably cause Nicholson ....... visits people in hospital? Of all the jibes made, this was the cheapest shot and I'm surprised you have chosen to repeat it, Brucie.

Luke Young - for usual 100% effort despite being crowded out in midfield Vincent Dorel - scratching around for anyone else, but I don't think he could be held to account for any of the goals. His distribution was not good - presumably, he was instructed to clear the ball upfield as far as possible -...

Torquay United v Dagenham and Redbridge - Matchday thread - 17/02/18

Mellow Yellow's yesterday's after-match summary was spot on. Don't blame the players (even though some of the basics like passing to a team mate were sadly lacking). We were out manouvred by the experienced John Still who played five across the misfield. This blocked our attacking full backs and lef...

Good balanced post. He did get a right back (Higgins) who has been absent for personal reasons - it was the left back (Davis) who was out for a while that was a useful addition when he returned. Some of the players that Nicholson nurtured, like Young and McGinty, have been consistent performers (de...
