Bit unfair to single out Brucies post, I think a lot of us said that and yes it was fair to give them a chance, but they have failed miserably, I wish Herrera had been kept on now, he was getting some decent performances in his last few games , draws with Wrexham and Chester , games we could easily ...

Torquay United v Bromley 20/1/18

Not sure I can stomach any more of this, I left well before the end too and I rarely miss a home game This is the lowest point in my 50 plus years watching Torquay I am afraid Gary Owers is totally responsible, he has signed about 15 loan players nearly all of them young kids , the latest such as Fl...

Elliott Romain

I know we need a striker to take chances up front but we should not be pinning all our hopes on
this lad. As Mr Sturrock said, the whole mentality of the team towards scoring goals has to change

Great stats Gulliball, the key one being 35 players used , so far ! Must be a record. About 20 too many for
a successful side. Owers will have the chance to get it right from the start next season, Nicholson had 4 games,
I would give Owers a dozen, if we are not in the top 6, replace him

If it is Danny Mills, 1 goal in 17 appearances this season for Ebbsfleet and Dartford and understudy /fill in
for Duane Afori doesnt fill you with much confidence

Looks like another Blissett, if he makes a nuisance of himself and ruffles a few defenders feathers and scores
a few goals I will be happy. He was phenomenal at Whitehawk the only place he has scored goals and I see
he was on loan here, under Buckle ? in 2009 for 2 games , cant say I remember him

Striker

Until he actually signs and we know who he is I wont raise my hopes I see James Gray can only make the bench at York City, another Williams type lazy player At least Barrow lost in the Trophy last night so the home game against them on Feb 3rd will go ahead could be crucial , he said clutching at th...

Torquay United Association Football Club - Sole Director Clarke Osborne

Think Teigngull has a point with the local population, an awful lot have moved to the area compared to other parts of the country and Torquay is simply not their team, I know some do come here and follow and support the team but there is a lot of apathy and mickey taking towards us. No offence to an...

Next season in the Conf south

So how do Truro do it then? Even more remote than us, 5th in the league 6 pts off the lead with a game in hand with a team containing many of our rejects , Ben Gerring, Ed Palmer, Niall Thompson, Billy Palfrey, Jamie Richards.... Lee Hodges must be a hell of a manager, get him in here ! Lets not get...

Hope or Hopeless

Well we did it 2 years ago from a similar position but its not going to happen again. Then we had battlers in the team such as Danny Racchi and Josh Rees with Blissett up front who was a physical nuisance and could score and Harrad who though didnt score many had a lot of experience and know how The...

Torquay v Eastleigh 13/01/2018 (PP)

Wasn't Nichos greatest fan, but you have to say he could hardly have done any worse
Regarding Reid, he is our penalty taker and has taken the last 4 , scored 3 but never convincingly

Torquay v Eastleigh 13/01/2018 (PP)

Played well, pretty much dominated the game , some good build up play but as usual we are useless in both penalty areas. Fletcher poor lad seemed to be playing on his own up front, Reid was on the wing most of the time where he is not good, have never liked the way he takes penalties, why Young does...
