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...

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...

Expectations for next season

There are plenty of clubs operating on lower average gates than Torquay United and several fellow managers having to work on smaller budgets than Kevin Nicholson ~ AND making a better fist of it! You don't know what budget Kevin Nicholson is working with and I very much doubt that you know the budg...

The Play Offs

Cheers for that, Torregull. I thought Darlington had a new stadium. Or maybe one was planned and never happened. Er .... ring any bells ??? :-/ Wow, Darlington have fallen, havent they? I remember when George Reynolds built the 25k seater stadium even though they were still in League 2 (or whatever...

Darlington's ground was ruled not up to the standard required in National League,the same as Poole and Hungerford.
