Just a thought & it's only a thought

Possibly or a team already in the north could be moved to the south as Gloucester city were last season. Except Gloucester City is uniquely the only club at National South level or higher playing outside its own County. The play their football in Worcestershire at Evesham United's ground roughly eq...

Just a thought & it's only a thought

Would are gates suffer at all if we were top of NLS? - can't see it myself. I actually think attendances would rise. What support would we take to Truro or Western Super Mare if we were top of the league? 100 -150 maybe. I reckon it would be 500 and probably more than that. I tend to agree. If we d...

Probably the most ridiculous thread EVER.
Yes it is laughable as we are in a ridiculous situation, with a ridiculous team, a ridiculous manager, a ridiculous GM and a ridiculous owner. So this absurd thread is rather apt.

Clutching at straws...

We're going to win all 11 remaining games and comfortably stay up............. Now why did you have to go an say that! I have to have a word with the bookie tomorrow and find out the odds! According to Newton's Law we cannot cheat gravity - but maybe, just maybe ... For example Leicester are renown...

Your time is up Mr Harrop ' Go NOW '

Allegedly Harrop tried to share a bag of crisps with a homeless person down Union St yesterday. The homeless person told him to f**k off and buy his own. :whistle:

Gary Owers

:-o Not at southern league YET No not yet! But to think by next season Argyle may well be 5 tiers higher than us. So no realistic chance of us meeting them in our brand new spanking stadium in the South West Combination Women's Football League or whatever the league is called we are heading too nex...

Bookmakers have Paul Ince (former Manchester and Liverpool star) as 2-5 favourite to take the Hartlepool job.

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

But last nights team wasnt assembled by Nicholson, only Young, McGinty and Davis were not signed by Owers. Anyway you can get too wrapped up in systems, we lost last night because of not taking a good chance and by defensive errors which will happen with any system, not because of the referee, thou...

Torquay United v Sutton United - 20/02/18

The Owers interview is pretty bleak reading. He can tell after 3 games that a referee is not good enough for this level, but when you've selected 33 different players in 24 league games, it does leave open the question about why he hasn't got the same level of judgement about players, especially wh...

Torquay United v Sutton United - 20/02/18

I wish I had been there to see this put in practice last night! No you would'nt Merse. Other NL teams know Owers is no more than a 'one trick pony'. Sutton playing a Sweeper-Keeper should tell you that last night they were playing with a high defensive line to nullify our predictable 3-5-2 formatio...

Torquay United v Sutton United - 20/02/18

I do feel slightly sorry for Owers,... the annoying thing is that this league is so mediocre..... I assume you mean by 'mediocre' that every team is beatable. So why can't we beat them? Mr Owers picks the players and the tactics and he is well paid to take responsibility for results. So why feel so...

Torquay United v Sutton United - 20/02/18

Yet again, we were let down by the wrong formation. No width....... Is it a 3-5-2 or a 5-3-2? Our formations are blurred at the best of times, but we can at least say there is a discernible back three and two wing-backs. With three central defenders, our back line should have a spare man even again...

Torquay United v Sutton United - 20/02/18

Owers post-match radio interview sounded like he is a 'Dead Man Walking'. How he has clung to this job till now is beyond me other than the skin of his teeth must be made of titanium. If you feel a temptation to feel some sympathy for Owers -don't! He wonts you to consider in isolation, some crass i...
