Kevin Foster MP supports TUFC in his weekly newsletter

If Kevin Foster stands next to his fellow Conservative the mayor Gordon Oliver and declares the freehold is not for sale all is good. But if as it sounds that he is just trying to harvest TUFC fan votes then it is rather disappointing.He never mentioned Torquay United's plight before an election wa...

Kevin Foster MP supports TUFC in his weekly newsletter

With a bit of imagination, investment and refurbishment couldn't more use be made of the facilities at Plainmoor?

Contact the Mayor- Gordon Oliver

Or the Mayor wearing a Torquay scarf! :scarf:

I've sent several emails to the Mayor and got nothing back but an automated response, but perhaps that's the telling point.

Maybe we should all email him at the same time on the same day?

"There's gonna be a riot". ?

What would undo the good work? A chant? As mentioned was used for Kevin Nicholson last season. Wrong.end.of.the.stick. Rioting. I'm all for peaceful protest and especially chanting. There's no suggestion of literally rioting. It's a tongue in cheek lyric in a chant, which was taken out of context. ...

"There's gonna be a riot". ?

This would undo all the good work that fans have been doing to get the GI/Plainmoor issue to a wider audience. Slowly but surely its working as Merse's Observer/Guardian story and the item in Westcountry news showed. Kevin Foster MP for Torbay has included a piece on TUFC and Plainmoor in his weekl...

"There's gonna be a riot". ?

Absolutely no need for there to be a riot but we do need to make the mayor aware of our feelings and plans are in place for a fans gathering outside of the town hall on Saturday 29th at 10.00am. If the mayor is of the opinion that any decision that he makes will make him unpopular, he'll almost cer...

Kevin Foster MP supports TUFC in his weekly newsletter

From Kevin Foster MP's weekly news letter: TUFC, "On Monday I was at Plainmoor to watch the Gulls secure a vital 3-1 win over Braintree and keep their hopes alive of avoiding relegation. Yet it is the action off pitch that has again been the focus with The Guardian running an article highlighting so...

Herald finally speak Up !!!!!!!

After my criticism of David Thomas on the Guardian thread on Saturday (13.32) - apologies to those that didn't get the Game of Thrones reference - I would have to say that giving him his due, this story in the main is calling for GI to step up to the mark and make a commitment to the club and fans ...

Anyone fancy standing for our MP as a 'Save TUFC from GI' candidate?

Signed.

That's more like it. Although my petition to be presented to the Council committee got enough signatures to be presented, the numbers on this petition are more representative of the fan base.

COYY!

Anyone fancy standing for our MP as a 'Save TUFC from GI' candidate?

Yes they did but they actually won seats on Greenwich Council. This is not a council election but a General Election Yes, I appreciate the difference but whilst there would be no chance of a victory, for £500 you get the message, 'Save Torquay United from GI' into every household in Torbay plus som...

Anyone fancy standing for our MP as a 'Save TUFC from GI' candidate?

Excellent idea! Even if the only time the candidate got a mention was at the announcement of the result the message would reach a wide audience. Thinking back to the recent forum there are plenty of articulate fans that could do the job. I have never campaigned on behalf of a political party but wil...
