Torquay United v Sutton United - 20/02/18

If we can't even draw our home games let alone win them we are surely doomed.

Yes - who is the 'new' Gilbert anyway? The old one resigned didn't he? Looking at the latest video clips there is Gilbert, large as life.

Current Form in the National League.

He's not eligible to play as he's on loan from his parent club. He could play if he was a permanent signing.

Torquay United v Barrow 3/2/18

"Ebbsfleet. Is it a real place? Where the hell is it? :lol:" Ebbsfleet is just a railway station in the middle of Kent - there is nothing else there. I know because I have caught the high speed train from there into London several times - the only neighbours are cows and sheep! The club used to be c...

Chester & Hartlepool

I quite agree, westyorkshire, as far as I can see it will be only Man C & perhaps Man U who can win the Premier League for the forseeable future. Utterly ridiculous sums of money being spent by these two clubs - why Man C haven't been investigated by the Financial Fair Play people is beyond me. Perh...

Brett is Back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"please let's get off this Nicholson bashing, move on."

Hear hear - there must be others apart from me and Southampton Gull who are absolutely sick of hearing Nicho blamed for many of the club's ills. Let's move on indeed!

Jim Parker Herald Express

Excellent article by Richard Hughes - it's what we all feel. I have written to Gregor Robertson of The Times asking him to include a feature on Torquay United in a future issue of 'The Journeyman', an excellent weekly page in 'The Game' (The Times football section) about clubs outside the Premier Le...

Anderson didn't even make the bench for Chester on Saturday - is he injured?

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

It's obvious there will be no Great Escape no.3 this season, and I agree with all the posts on here. We simply haven't got the characters in the team that were around for Great Escape no. 1 - think MacDonald, Smith, Butler, Racchi, Harrad, Blissett. Last season we rode our luck and in the end it was...

Is this all 'FAKE NEWS'

Bring back Shaun Harrad! If nothing else at least he could hold the ball up and take a lot of buffeting in the process. Expect he's retired now anyway.

Two strikers Imminent?

It's a slow-motion car crash and it has been for five years now. Even David Thomas on the podcast has at last woken up to the reality and referred to 'five years of failure'. Utterly depressing.

Two strikers Imminent?

At the end of the day, the club needs players who actually WANT to play for Torquay United and have some sense of pride in wearing the shirt. I've said this before on this forum that Ben Gerring was a limited footballer but had huge pride in playing for his home town club and never gave less than 10...

Joined Boring Wood - it's on the OS just now. Gnabouyou, Davey - the words 'sinking ship' and 'rats' come to mind.

Relegation is as certain as Man City winning the Premier League
