Bad Vibes. Let's get them out of the way

My bad vibes are no matter what happens on Saturday we are still faced with the prospect of the freehold on plainmoor being sold which could lead to the demise of the club. GI's intent as far as the football side of things goes won't be known until they announce who is going to be the manager next s...

Dover Athletic v Torquay United 22/4/17

Win We are safe Draw Braintree can't catch us. Guiseley & York would both need to win. Lose There are 27 (yes 27) permutations 16 result in us being safe. The other 11 can be seen below. The 11 results that we dare not think about. 7 would need two from Braintree, York and Guiseley to win. Braintre...

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

If you read the paragraph as a whole he is saying that he is sceptical that a new stadium is actually needed and that plainmoor is adequate for the clubs needs. He is basing his scepticism on his experience with Coventry city.

The next General Election: who will you vote for?

UKIP are a spent force, now brexit is a reality their supporters are going back to the Tory party. Labour could be another spent force. Assuming they are facing a massive defeat there are still no signs that corbyn/momentum/unite will throw in the towel when that defeat comes. That leaves Britain as...

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

After reading the comments on this post I have come to the conclusion this is not a good idea. 1) As sue says it is a tremendous committment of time, money and resources with a debatable outcome. 2) I do not think that this general election is going to be popular with the general public, so it is no...

Guardian Article On Torquay

The Herald are definitely complicit in the deal for Plainmoor. Unfortunately my information is GI already have the deal done. If this is the case then what are we fighting for? Once GI have the freehold its over. Oh and don't worry about the club being forced to pay an uneconomical rent at a new st...

Mind you, we haven't got a mascot, but then neither have any other teams in the Northern Premier - and I don't think in the Conference North either (but I could be wrong here).
Which isn't a bad thing.

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

:bow: Well I don't live down there, I am in the Hornsey & Wood Green constituency now having moved over from Jeremy Corbyn's Islington North stronghold since the last General Election. That rules out being able to vote tactically and my only 'X' will go into the box for my sitting Labour MP Catheri...

Guardian Article On Torquay

I wouldn't be surprised if DT wrote that article on behalf of GI. It is suggesting that the recent evident fan unrest is simply about on pitch matters, and that is exactly what GI would wish, so as to act as a smoke screen hiding the real issue, ie the very existence of Torquay United AFC.

Herald finally speak Up !!!!!!!

Furthermore the full time/part time issue isn't the most immediately pressing issue, that is getting GI to come clean with their plans about the freehold. If I was into conspiracy theories I would suggest the following: This is black propaganda produced by GI and spread on their behalf by the HE. I...

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

In such a marginal seat with only a couple thousand votes between the two main contenders last time around our votes could be crucial. I suggest we place our faith in the officers of the TUST. Get both favoured candidates to meet with the TUST hierarchy to share their thoughts on this issue. Hear w...
