Fair enough ~ did the club go bankrupt because you staged your 'one man boycott' then?

Anyway; you totally missed the point ~ I only asked the poster to quantify his statement that the management weren't on contracts which he has failed, or is unable to do.

Torquay v Gateshead

As for the apparent "foul" by Pittman - it looks to me as though the keeper has flapped and missed it before Pittman is anywhere near him. There is not one Gateshead player appealing for a foul so nothing there at all for me. I said 'it could be argued' and you (and the Gateshead goalkeeper) are do...

I have no problem with you asking questions or enquiring the validity of the content ,it's the way you come across with the vitriolic words such as 'parochial' its as if you need to be seen as superior to your fellow forum So how do YOU come across referring to me as: 'this Merse bloke' ? Isn't tha...

So how do you know what Yorkie knows or doesn't ? Are we just to take your appraisals as gospel & not challenge you ?
I merely asked: 'How do you know they 'haven't signed contracts'? Nobody knows that'
So I've asked him how he knows that; is that a problem? Get over yourself!

'this Merse bloke ' has as much right to an opinion as you buddy and calling someone to attention for making a statement that cannot be proven as factual is no crime is it?

Talk about parochial :|

Torquay v Gateshead

Benches should be swapped around, the away team are able to put too much pressure on that lino to their benefit I've been saying that forever; an appalling lack of nous from a so called professional club who are so way adrift of the hard facts of life in the game it is a joke. Have I stuck up for t...

...it could also be argued that Pittman fouled their keeper in the lead up to the equaliser. As always there are contentious issues and maybe one has cancelled out the other in this match.

I've watched that too and it must have been Reid judged offside and not the other player who was in no way active.

The lino has the perfect angle; , the TV camera does not therefore I would bow to his opinion although from the camera angle he looked onside

I'm not nit picking; I'm questioning the validity of your statement that the management ar not on contracts and I've spelled out the actualite of where we are as regard the number of matches played so far, how many there are to go and what needs doing about the squad.

I think Owers & Kuhl deserve an awful lot of credit for the results in the last 5 or 6 matches. Up to that point they had been nothing short of a disaster and i doubt they could have had many complaints about fans beginning to doubt them. Although the jury is still out about them for me, both in te...

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...

I echo that; if for no other reason get along and join in with your contribution to a genuine legend; one who absolutely loved playing for his one and only professional club and who was never really well remunerated for it nor particularly accorded the respect he deserved from them in return afterwa...

I may be doing them a complete disservice. Yes you might because none of us know precisely what the current parameters of their jobs are....... For instance; Harrop is General Manager which means he is not Director of Football but generally managing the whole shebang from overseeing the commercial ...

Tranmere Rovers v Torquay United 9/12/17

With so many players not secured on contracts beyond the end of the year ~ rather than the end of the season ~ no even the manager really knows as yet what squad he will be working with in the second half of the season. Then there are the ones you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy who are under cont...
