Season tickets

I think the signings will make people think twice, but also those that said maybe know that GI still want the freehold! Encouraging start but we cant be complacent and take our eyes off the ball on what should be the most important signing, refusal of the freehold to GI! :goodpost: Although I have ...

Keeping Our Eye on the Ball

Keeping our eye on the ball…post-election. I sent 4 emails and 9 letters to candidates and their agents. I know from the replies that I received from the parties (all bar UKIP :red: ) and being CC’d in to emails, that others were doing the same. Unsurprisingly, my fantasy that the issue of the sale ...

I imagine the attached will be the new shirt?

Christ! I hope not.

The likes of Luke Young and McGinty will carry it off and I'm sure Sam Chaney will love it but with my physique I'll be hunting for the XXXL size. :aww: l'll be sticking with last season's shirt with the silly flappy collar.

Would like to have Bays Brewery sponsor us... 420 Skatestore was the least embarrassing thing to be emblazoned across our shirts for a few years.
I wore my shirt at work for a particular event and a young Goth asked somebody else "Does he know he has 420 across his shirt?"!

Keeping Our Eye on the Ball

Have received the following from the Labour Party. Dear Bob, Firstly my apologies for not responding much sooner - a combination of workload and community matters! Michael will know that the Labour Party has stood by the supporters of Torquay United through what have been very troubled times. The un...

Keeping Our Eye on the Ball

We need to get the word out to the wider fan base. I bumped into an old friend and lifelong supporter who sits in The Bench. We chatted about the end of the season and the signings but when I mentioned GI trying to buy the freehold of Plainmoor and their record (or lack of it!) for provided the prom...

Keeping Our Eye on the Ball

Still trying to keep an eye on the ball... I saw that in Deborah Brewer's election material that came through the door under 'Protect our green spaces ' it says "As your MP, I would oppose the wholesale destruction of our valued green spaces, heritage sites and amenities including Cary Green, Oldway...

Keeping Our Eye on the Ball

Thornberry should have been thrown out of the party over the Twitter gaff because she is symptomatic of the liberal chattering classes who hijacked the party and turned it into the unelectable play thing of middle class intellectuals. Seeing as this thread was dedicated to keeping our eye on the ba...

Nobody has mentioned the "T" word yet on this thread. I would but I might be labelled a militant again :nod:

If GI fail getting the freehold...

The important thing to realise is this. If GI fail to get the freehold of plainmoor then there is still somewhere for a football team representing the town of Torquay to play. It doesn't matter if it is TUFC or a reincarnation, the fact is we will still have a football ground. If we fail to protect...

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...

Keeping Our Eye on the Ball

Has he made some vague supportive comments about Torquay United in the run up to a general election? Yes. He made informed and supportive comments since before the election was called. If anyone can get a candidate to publicly say no the sale of the freehold they will get my vote. That's what we wa...
