Owers yet to sign a contract.....

Can't complain how well our new manager has been backed, Nicho must be spitting feathers at the lack of support he was shown at the end of last season and through to his sacking. Perhaps the board actually realised that Nicho had no idea what he was doing and held back the money for someone who was...

St Lukes Cup vs Cullompton Rangers

People ( and Merse!) are right that the Devon Senior Cup is not the Crown Jewels and I recognise that it's often now no longer always won by professional sides and for good reason. My point however that there is no room for complacency. We are a professional club and we went into this particular ga...

St Lukes Cup vs Cullompton Rangers

There is no way the intensity of the game as found at National League level can be replicated in these games and as such they do not represent a realistic test on how to judge either the Torquay United team or it's individual components. In a National League game the quality of the decision-making h...

St Lukes Cup vs Cullompton Rangers

I am impressed that Merse feels there is nothing to concern us by this loss. There was I thinking this was an absolute disgrace. Obviously Cullompton are a better side than we lost to in other cup defeats where I seemed to recall he went absolutely apeshit. It's obviously ill advised to get in a wi...

St Lukes Cup vs Cullompton Rangers

Pretty meaningless but surely with a team made up quite a few professionals we should be able to win this? As you say meaningless in terms of result; not a fixture commitment the new manager welcomed and neither a prospect of any enthusiasm towards further participation in the County Cup Get a grip...

He's hiding in the same cupboard as Jordan (nothing wrong with him) Lee; how much longer are this pair going to swing the lead?

Very confused - what is GI's game?

Exactly; and underlining just why the freehold of Plainmoor must not be disposed of by the current holders (the council) and certainly not as a means of the purchaser being able to use it as collateral towards financing the construction of it's replacement.....that's where it can and most probably w...

Late & Injury time goals

Don't ask Young to come deep, break up play, hate to use this phrase but ' quarter back ' the midfield, for instance, if you were playing diamond, you'd want Young at the head of it, further up the field, he's the one player we've got who can, and will open up the opposition door, showed that yeste...

Late & Injury time goals

My observation drawn from a few (mainly away) games this season is that Luke Young's habit of retreating deeper and deeper as the game goes on allows the opposition to press forward and get their hands on the throats of the United team. It is almost inevitable in those circumstances and it has alway...

We've had a few players go missing just lately......Liam Davies, Josh Gowling, Ryan Clarke, Jordan Lee, Chaney, Kluelesskowski, Old UncleTom Cobley and all....Luke Young even does it in the second half of away matches without getting injured and don't get me started on Jamie Reid! Just watch the cri...

Very confused - what is GI's game?

I agree with you ~ the 'debate' needs to be on a higher level than many devalue it by rubbish like that........ The reason I came onto this forum several months ago was to attempt to consolidate awareness of the reality and the reality is the club has been scandalously 'mis-owned' ~ irresponsibly s...

As certain as it was that Williams was going to score against us last weekend, its is inevitable that Nicholson will be appointed as head coach at Bath , take them into the National league in the next 3 seasons having beaten us home and away , while we slide the other way into the NLS as he waves a...
