Torquay United v Sutton United - 20/02/18

The real strength of a team does lay in flexibility one that can easily change formation on the fly between attacking and defending, and that’s a hallmark of intelligent coaching and players. For example, Owers could play a 4-4-2 which immediately turns into 4-2-4, or vice versa. But no he remains ...

Torquay United v Sutton United - 20/02/18

Fair play to Sutton for the most effective use of a GK I've seen at Plainmoor in a long time. Absolutely acted as a sweeper keeper, often rushing out of goal in order to receive the ball from a free kick up near the half way line. It's bold, but when faced with a defensive minded team like us (ie l...

Torquay United v Sutton United - 20/02/18

Yet again, we were let down by the wrong formation. No width....... Playing three at the back makes that ridiculous. The whole point of 3-5-2 is to provide width; the problem comes when the wingbacks get on the back foot and it becomes 5-3-2. A loss of width going forward and the midfield becoming ...

Either of you still willing to give him a chance?
Whilst standing by my words of the time; in no way am I going to defend his record which is appalling and I make no bones about that.

Torquay United v Sutton United - 20/02/18

What is Davis doing challenging in the 90th minute to give away that penalty Because he is a fucking moron, that’s why. Well the manager said on the radio after the game that we can only get other people's caste offs and I would accept that except ~ when I spoke to him at Dagenham, Owers expressed ...

Basically that's a hell of a lot of CRAP for one set fans to deal with.
......and brucie has summed it up perfectly. I hope the Halifax chairman asked Nicholson what he was doing playing the twenty stone kit man as part of pre-season preparation this summer!

Torquay United v Sutton United - 20/02/18

A lot of good an academy will do in NLS. It's in no way an academy; that's a bloody insult to the concept. It's an after school club where some squads can't even have a proper training session because players decide not to turn up when they feel like it. The other day some were playing Bubble Footb...

Not sure what to make of this one particularly after his first managerial job at Notts County where he was sacked after 70 days after fans held protests calling for his sacking. There are those who will tell you his big problem at Notts was Guy Branston and the crap job he was doing signing the pla...

Well if you want to be a manager then you have to have a 'have boots will travel' attitude becasue sitting in the deep Westcountry has nothing to recommend it in that game. I think also; that if he wants to come back from getting sacked at a club like Torquay United then he needs to look at improvi...

Personally, I think it would be to Nicho's interest in the long run if he took a step back and went for an assistant manager's post with an experienced manager at a club WHERE THE CHAIRMAN TAKES AN INTEREST !!!! Maybe he should consider his CV and try to emulate what Fullarton has on his.....'an ex...

Where the fans' forums go today; the Herald Express take nine months to follow! Read what BTPIR were saying last April: "It is not a greyhound stadium, nor a speedway club.
