List of Players who were rubbish with us, but have gone on to be good

No one has brought up the name Fred Binney , who played in the Football League for all three of Devon’s senior clubs Offered a professional contract in 1966, Binney was a regular scorer for Torquay's Western League reserves but was kept out of the first team by the form of United’s legendary Robin S...

List of Players who were rubbish with us, but have gone on to be good

n.b. for the REAL Codgery: I never saw Don Mills but all the real old codgers I ever knew over the years on the pop. side would say, if asked the question 'who was the greatest of them all?' would reply 'Don Mills'. Whilst I did see Don Mills play in his latter years I was too young to appreciate h...

Should all contracted players terminate their contracts in order to save our club

Sorry. A local population who dont turn up? 1900 when you are bottom of the National League with one win all season says different. Just because you gave up doesnt mean that everybody has. Yes its been 5 years of stupendous crap but the point of supporting a team is not to give in when the going ge...

Should all contracted players terminate their contracts in order to save our club

Once more. It doesn't matter which managers or assistants or players or anything come into the club, it's riddled with disease and unless that disease is treated then it can't get better. Rubbish! Our GM was weeks in the wilderness, carrying out a time consuming and extensive search for a managemen...

And good luck to them. A club on the up with limited resources, well done!
Agreed, any team with limited resources but have a winning mentality and a love for the game deserve everything they get.

Fa Cup 4th qualifying round Aldershot v Torquay 14/10/17

Owers has walked into a bag of shit dumped by an incompetent predecessor and will have to perform in the manner of a promotion winner just to rescue the situation. I think the consistent blame on the predecessor has now run its course and the focus now must be on the present incumbent Gary Ower's w...

You build from the bottom up, not the top down

What appalling knowledg of geography you have! Boreham Wood FC a South London club? They come from the town of Borehamwood in Hertfordshire and their nearest significant rivals for crowds are Watford, Arsenal and Barnet with Spurs not so far away; St Albans City and Stevenage as local rivals. I thi...

You build from the bottom up, not the top down

Borehamwood sits within the 15 wards in Hertsmere which has a population of 104 517. Torquay sit within the 15 wards of Torbay which has a population of 130,959. So no real difference other than Boreham Wood being closer to London, which is not necessarily an advantage given there are 28 other non-l...

Torquay v Dover Saturday 7/10/17

Maybe the team were jaded after a tough Saturday/Tuesday and also a bit 'heavy legged' because there has been so much catching up to do because of the last regime's appalling fitness levels We have to stop looking for reasons/excuses for another dire performance. We have come a long way (downhill) ...

Torquay v Dover Saturday 7/10/17

. Oh, and Galiifuoco looked a class act - why oh why was he allowed to leave?! Same reason as Bromley's top goal-scorer Brett Williams - not good enough or fit enough or something 'enough'. Also note that Josh Rees is their second top goal scorer. I just hope we are not blindsided by the Maidenhead...

Torquay v Dover Saturday 7/10/17

Beaten by a physically stronger and well organised team. We had little time on the ball to develop any play and also seamed to lack Ideas of how to break them down. A disappointing result but there are still signs of improvement, maybe two steps forward on Tuesday and one back today. Can see why Do...

Torquay United v Maidenhead, Match Day Thread 03/10/17

It's going to take more than 45 minutes of good football to convince me we're on the way up. Get something from Saturday against a tougher outfit and I'll start to think a bit more positively. As it will be for many others Plymouth Gull. But a win is a win and this one was won in ecstatic style. If...
