Torquay United v Bromley 20/1/18

Apart from us and Hartlepool the rest of the bottom half of the table are playing games against each other. That means there will be more points than usual going to teams in the bottom half of the table which is bad news for us whatever result we get.

Gary Owers

I have very little time for people who don't sell themselves but instead rubbish others and blame everything and everybody for the position they find themselves in. Gary Owers seems to be like this which is why he has failed so spectacularly. If he could get his act together and at least show some e...

Is there an alternative future for Torquay United?

As things stand it looks like we will be relegated to Natinal South for next season. We are in the ownership of someone who has no interest in the future of the Club other than for his own gain, however that might be realised. There are no potential buyers of the Club as far as I know. The only alte...

Are these latest signings the last roll of the dice for TUFC

I suspect that the main reason for Merse currently acting up like a bear with a sore head is that his hoped for scenario for this season isn't coming to fruition. He has a deep, undying hatred for Kevin Nicholson. I don't think we know why but I may have missed the explanation somewhere along the li...

Wrexham v Torquay 6/1/18

At least Martin Kuhl will have a back up job waiting for him on a building site when he is shown the door at Plainmor. :lol: :lol: I don't really know whether I should feel sorry for him and Gary Owers - were they sold a pup, have they been unlucky with recruitment or have they just messed up big ti...

Two strikers Imminent?

Perhaps the problem with us making significant signings is that the financial controller at TQ1, whoever that might be, is getting cold feet and that is why we are getting the scraps and other Clubs are getting the better players ?

The squad as it stands.....

I think we are in danger of going off thread on this one. The purpose of my first post wasn't to insult Martin Kuhl ( he must have a sense of humour to have survived in football for so long) or to question his knowledge of the game (football is only a small part of my life and I am becoming increasi...

The squad as it stands.....

Correct me if I am wrong but prior to today I think Oowers and the brickie's mate....... You wouldn' call Martin Kuhl that to his face so don't do it here..........football is a transient profession with periods when you will not earn from the game and need to go and do it as best you can. Martin K...

The squad as it stands.....

Correct me if I am wrong but prior to today I think Oowers and the brickie's mate had signed 7 players and only Andresson is still with us. The one thing they all had in common was that they started well enough but their enthusisism, commitment or whatever slowly waned and they left as quickly as th...

Great appointment.

History (League Tables) will show that Nicho kept us up for two seasons and Owers took us down in one!

Teams around us

Don't assume that Solihull, Chester and Guiseley are going down without a whimper. Mark Yates is putting a decent squad together at Solihull and Guiseley under Paul Cox could put a run together. We could catch a team currently above the bottom four but still be overtaken by Solihull or Guiseley whic...

Two strikers Imminent?

More drivel I'm afraid from an inexperienced middle aged manager who is completely out of his depth. He talks a good game but consistently fails to deliver. Once again the players weren't up for the game (v Boreham Wood) today. Whose fault is that? I thought that the Gaffer and his right hand man we...

Torquay v Gateshead

Not good enough though. We are doomed with the current management in charge. We can't even average a goal a game any more. You sure about that? At least they're fit enough to do that now, unlike under the last piss-poor management. Typically poor side though ~ OK until they go behind then confidenc...

GILBERT's performances.

That all sounds very good but: Has there been a significant improvement in Gilberts performance since Owers and Kuhl came in? Has his fitness improved - does he last the pace of a Saturday afternoon better under the new management? I seem to recall the Gaffer being quoted somewhere saying that Gilb...
