Club Statement

Awareness has to be made widespread that the number of hours given to training in the Torquay United project is both inadequate and counter-productive to any aspiration to being an 'academy' rather than an after school project and players who are serious about progressing towards professional footb...

Club Statement

This needs taking issue with: "The major success, in my opinion, is the reformation of a youth system at our Club and the start of building a strong sustainable Academy. It forms the backbone of future sustainable success" When the reality is when an 'academy' parent posts: 1) the idea to set up a y...

TUST Updates

A good example of how to possess direction and a magnitude is the grassroots campaigning network 'Momentum'. Though I am not a supporter you have respect and admire a movement of ordinary people who are successfully mobilising the mass campaigning movement to get Labour into government. No media TV...

Club Statement

I agree with Chris wholeheartedly; if we don't help ourselves don't expect people like the Herald Express to help us.

If we don't make a noise don't expect the owner to notice us.

Self help, noise and continuance of it is the key!

Elliott Romain

A better bet than Blisset somebody said. I sadi that because the player who I am told travelled down to Torquay yesterday was not Romain and has a goals to appearance ratio of 0.65 whilst Blissett's is 0.21 As I've said on another thread I reckon there is another signing in the front two department...

To get the best out of Romain he needs to played off a strong holding ma; so I would anticipate another signing yet to come in. when he was at Eastbourne and playing so effectively lively he played off a big chunk of a man (though not so tall) called Nathaniel Pinney. Think Bayo Akinfenwa and you've...

Jim Parker Herald Express

It's the modern day acquiescence to advertising income over journalism.....90% of the content emanates from new release sent in rather than old school news hounding. The old days of journos lurking around pubs, clubs and brothels have ben replaced with sitting in front of computer screens reading tw...

Jim Parker Herald Express

Make no mistake about it; they DO read all the forums. They then choose to act as if a certain one doesn't exist and you have to ask yourself just why this is. They scrutinise (well Guy Henderson does) twitter and selectively censor what they feel should be aired and what they want swept under the c...

Jim Parker Herald Express

Is Parker too thick to appreciate that is it not 'the club' we want them to support, but the club owners we want them to investigate and the supporters who don't have the grave misgivings that many of us do adequately informed of the actual situation at the club? I don't think he is; I think he is t...

Steve Breed eloquently illustrates his position of CEO at the time Nicholson was appointed and the FACT that the board members went against his advice and suggested short list. I think it's about time that my views on the appointment that are constantly discredited with personal abuse are viewed in ...

Okay - maybe fair comment, Scott. But in the same vein, why not suggest to the Font of All Knowledge that he ceases his, frankly boring, constant 'digs' at Kevin Nicholson, and some of the current squad, and just move on? How can you 'move on' when the club is committed to so much financial damage ...

Signed by Ebbsfleet played 3 games - scored 1 and then put out on loan to Dartford Dec 17 and has yet to get a game. Although to be fair it looks like Dartford will be taking our place next season and so not easy to get into their goal scoring machine team with top class strikers like Duane Ofori-A...

He was just one of Barry Fry's many teenagers at the time (2009) being farmed out to get experience; played a couple of games and then found a much better and more remunerative placement at neighbouring Rushden & Diamonds.

Ambition or Submission?

I'm was pretty certain that you would all be hearing from Steve in the very near future on one forum or another; or maybe both! Everyone needs to be aware that when high profile entertainers like Helen Chamberlain, Chris Lintott, Charlie Baker and to an extent even Jim Proudfoot ~ who appears to ha...

Well let's cross one bridge at a time shall we.......... The argument against Nicholson as regards much of the dross he left behind is whether or not he did his due diligence on their recent track records for staying fit and actually playing some football and when you look at them they missed an aw...
