Torquay United v Leyton Orient thread

This result will go a long way to showing us if we mean business about staying up Orient have not won for 13 games in the league, if we cant score against them things will be looking bleak I hope and expect Martin Ling will get a great reception Think the wait for a second home win will go on though...

Sutton united V Torquay United 21/11/17

Yes, its no good in our position winning the odd game every 3 or 4. We really need 3 wins in a row to get back in the scrap, we are overdue a happy 5 o'clock trip home on a saturday, our last one was in January against Gateshead ! ( Ferriby was 12.15 ko) But we struggle to score at home and nearly a...

The Gaffer

Seems Gary Owers doesn't agree with Merse about Luke Young , quoted today as saying 'Luke Young
week in week out is performing to a very good standard" I think I will side with Owers.
I think he can play better , but if the other 10 put in the effort he does we wouldnt be in the bottom 4

AFC Fylde v Torquay United 18/11/17

If we were playing so well in the first half as Lucy and co suggest, why did Owers change the formation?
Seems we were playing well but missed a few chances. If he wanted to bring on Murphy why not do a
straight swap with Myrie Williams

AFC Fylde v Torquay United 18/11/17

As I said last week what are Myrie Williams, McQuoid and Murphy still doing here ? Are we stuck with them til the loan is up or can we send them back early, they have made no impact whatsoever and produced sod all, and Evans has been taken off for the last two games Loan players dont give a toss unl...

Lets hope the two strikers lined up, sign and do the business. Difficult though it is coming into a struggling
side, you have to say that McQuoid, Myrie Williams and Murphy to a lesser extent have all been a big
disappointment

Torquay United v Maidstone United 11/11/17

Dont agree with Jack that our team are Conference South players ! If you compare our players individually with the oppositions I think we have better players . The difference is the other teams really play as a team and have in most cases been together certainly a lot longer than ours and havent use...

Torquay United v Maidstone United 11/11/17

I would rather take a punt on a striker from the Nat South who scores goals than do what Owers did today second half What on earth is Myrie -Williams still doing here? Absolutely useless. McQuoid obviously can play but has shown very little so far . Owers clearly doesnt like Keating. The honeymoon p...

Interesting stat WYG . You only have to score 1 goal to win a game. The last two 2-0 home defeats have been
really poor with the goals conceded all too easy for the opposition. Its got to stop today. Lets take one of our
chances this afternoon and win 1-0

James Gray Joins York on Permanent Contract

The biggest stand out statistic for me is that we have used 27 players already - the reason we are
bottom of the league

Very confused - what is GI's game?

I expect living with you drove them all mad ........
re Higgins bit unfair to single him out but yes he has been at fault for a few goals, but cant knock his effort
running and commitment but as you say the first priority of the full back is to stop the cross

Torquay v Hartlepool 28/10/17

more times than him, maybe I will get asked next match
