Torquay v Gateshead

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...

Tranmere Rovers v Torquay United 9/12/17

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...

Don't caste aspersions on the management's professionalism...
He's a comedy genius!

Maybe I should have emphasised THIS management

Axel Oskar Andresson Signs on Loan

You have to look at this in the context of what can and to a certain extent will; happen with some of the other loanees.........can Efete stay for instance, and Davey too? Does McGinty fancy himself leaving during the window for an EFL club? And by the look of it, this is an initial loan with consid...

Axel Oskar Andresson Signs on Loan

I think Gowling's 'card might have been marked' when he declined to get his head in the way with that second Fylde goal and then (true to form) became unvailable to play on 3G ~ as he had at Bromley ~ at Sutton. Things like that piss off old school managers; this isn't the players' best mate they're...

FA Trophy First Round

Bit of a hike in the prices this time, usually £10 entry for this game so with my maths O level, thats a 50% increase. Maybe it has to be agreed with Maidstone (expect Merse will tell us ) All Stands: Adults £15 | Concessions* £10 | U18s £5 | U7s FREE * Over 65s & NUS card holders. Season tickets a...

The National League Form Table.

No need for any clever over-analysis, all the team can do is win there own games, then other teams results are no longer a problem. Exactly; football is a simple game made complicated by simpletons who think there is a mathematical solution better than merely making an inanimate object move in a di...

Ian Twitchen -RIP

I'll tell you all a lovely little tale of Twitch and how (indeed) the game has changed since the days in which he played...... After one of our legendary visits to Somerton Park to play Newport County; the team coach left minus a few predictable suspects of which there were Willie Brown (a former C...

Ian Twitchen -RIP

I'm devastated to learn of this; so please spell his name correctly ~ it is Twitchin. We grew up together playing against one another in schools and youth football and together at Newton Spurs. Whilst I went on to become the Business Manager at the club he was playing with distinction and went on t...

FA Trophy First Round

To put this idea that the club 'need to concentrate on the league' to bed......... The FA allows both clubs to agreed that the tie can be settled on the day, with extra time and a penalty shoot out if required rather than go to a replay. As of yet, there is no indication from the football club wheth...

Torquay v Aldershot match day thread

One thing that irks me a little is in the post match interview GO said about how unfit the team was. That’s down to the players, especially full time professionals. Players should be staying fit in there own time, in my opinion. Players shouldn’t be turning up to training unfit. This view point cou...
