Keeping Our Eye on the Ball

I had a chance meeting with Deborah Brewer today the Lib Dem candidate for Torbay. A cheery soul, local girl and when asked whether Plainmoor would be safe she said, 'read my election literature, yes it will be'. She can't be a mason which is a big plus for me. Are any of the decision makers on the ...

Guardian Article On Torquay

Thank you for the update Soupdragon. I am an optimistic fellow but I still can't work it out. If GI are a property company - what have they bought that is tangible - nothing, or do they own the stands, I can't remember. Why then would they put in 6 figures to something that is not turning a profit. ...

Guardian Article On Torquay

I have been told that it is UNLIKELY the council will get rid of the freehold to GI (from an excellent source). However, although involved in property and planning myself, I have struggled to work out what the GI game plan is. I have juggled all the scenarios, spoken to several people in the know. ...

Torquay v Braintree Easter Monday

No dilemma for me tomogull. If fit, Sparkes in Reid out. Reid is poor, how many goals has he scored this season from almost a centre forward position. He is just not up to it.

GI the Death of TUFC as we know it

Not sure of the significance of this but the indoor bowls club underneath the pop side have just signed a 10 year lease with Torbay Council for continued use of the facility.

Torquay v Eastleigh 21.3.17

The time wasting last night was probably the worst I have seen and yet, amazingly, not one Eastleigh player was booked. How is it, the most popular sport in the world, cannot get to grips with cheating. It is seriously affecting my enjoyment of the game. Add to the time wasting the diving, feigning ...

Would you go and watch Torquay United in the Conference South?

Yes I would go and I would get a season ticket. Been going for 55 years now, what can I do? Some people get hooked on porn, gambling, booze, scratchcards etc. Me, it's Torquay United. Sad I know.

Bromley vs Torquay 04/02/17

Mellow, I have nice trips away this season, apart from the football. All have been welcoming (especially Maidstone). The fans have been friendly and pleased that we have made the trip. I wear a hat and scarf in Torquays colours, many fans have said safe trip home etc and hope you stay up. I do not l...

Sterling work by Neal and others. This is what we need. The forums should work together on this - we all have one objective.

Club Ownership

I think that is the word - vigilance and Merse has penned a correct summation of the situation surrounding Torquay United. Once again, we have to be thankful for the forums as there is indeed a serious desire for the club to succeed by the majority of the participants coupled with in depth knowledge...
