TUFC 2017/18 Squad

2 solid signings today. I was a little frustrated with the lack of progress but the squad is slowly taking shape. A few more in this mould and we really should be a lot more competitive. I think priorities now are fullbacks and a goal keeper. It doesn't seem that Moore is returning, surely he would ...

Keating Signs!

Its a bit of as concern that only one of those players who have been offered a new deal has actually signed. I assume they must be considering their options and seeing what is available elsewhere. Do they have 28 days from the date the deals were offered or do I have that wrong? If so, hopefully we ...

Transfer Rumours 17/18

See Fitzpatrick has been released by Wimbledon. What a signing that would be. Unlikely to be able to afford him though!!

Final Game - North Ferriby @ 12:15

Surely Sparkes is worth risking for this one, probably our player of the season. Apart from Young, he's the only one that can deliver a decent cross. He has to play even of only 90% fit.

Incredible support

Thanks for the support Jordan. Ive never been to Macclesfield, maybe I can tick that one off next season, fingers crossed. I went to Gateshead away last year. From memory it was Easter weekend or maybe a week later - 800 mile round trip. Not sure why I did it or if I will again; seemed a good idea a...

Final Game - North Ferriby @ 12:15

This will be the only home game that I have missed all season, absolutely gutted. I pray that I will still have a team to support next season and at a decent level. I think we will win but I have to say that I am nervous about it. An early goal would settle everyone down and really help to get the r...

MOTM - Braintree

Keating was man of the match for his sheer determination and attitude (shame we haven't got more players like him).
Williams - took his 2 goals really well and has ability.
Reid
Lee
Young

MOTM - Tranmere

Its a pleasure to be able to give credit to 5 players for a change:

1. Hodgkiss
2. Sparkes
3. Young
4. Williams
5. Verma.

AS special mention also to Keating - he has potential and deserves a start.

Torquay Utd V Sutton Utd 25/02

It is difficult to put into words how I felt after the game today. It was the lack of effort that disappointed me more than anything. I accept that we are a poor team but when you see players not trying that is unforgivable. I went into number 10s for a drink after the game and a few of them came in...

Torquay v Macclesfield, National League, Sat. 11 Feb. 2017, 3:00 pm

The conditions weren't great but that cant excuse the shocking first half performance (one of the worst iv seen but I have been saying that a lot lately!!). No desire, no commitment and very little skill. McGinty is a good solid stopper and arguably that is what he is there to do. But, he has absolu...

MOTM - Macclesfield

Sparkes
Anderson - solid debut, looks promising.
Hodgkiss

Not much from the rest and another really poor game.

Nah, well get something out of this one. Likely to be a scrappy game but I think we will dig in. Going for 2-1 to the Gulls. Williams and Moore. Attendance 1573.

MOTM - Boreham Wood

I can only name 3 I'm afraid:

1. LRT - Didnt put a foot wrong - did ok.
2. Fitzpatrick - nowhere near last weeks performance but still one of the better players.
3. Reid - tried hard again but no service. Too many long balls pumped in his direction.
4.
5.

Torquay v Boreham Wood 07/01/17

FT 0-1 Played well and were unlucky according to the commentary..... :( Hmmm. If that is what the radio commentary said, I'm not sure what game they were watching. Yes, we had decent possession at times but did absolutely nothing with it. The urgency and temp from the previous 2 games just wasn't t...
