Players who made you smile

I understand what you say Wivel. Maybe the thread should have been " Players you looked forward to seeing play" Although anyone who watched Southall Bondy Stubbs, Rioch etc and didn't have a smile on their face must be pretty hard to please. I can remember my dad taking me to Plainmoor when I was ab...

Players who made you smile

Amongst all the gloom and doom it is worth taking a few minutes to reflect on players who have passed through Plainmoor, sometimes on their way down from glittering careers elsewhere sometimes on their way up to better things. Some were on loan but left their mark. Here is my team of players I actua...

An embarrassment of riches - one of the problems of being a lottery winner.

Torquay United v Maidenhead, Match Day Thread 03/10/17

Great intensity and movement - a rare treat. Young had his best game for ages as a result of being pushed further forward and Davis looked a class act. Gowling was immense and reads the game so well. The work that Owers and Kuhl have put in was very evident and it was so good to watch a team which h...

Dorel Offered Contract

Fingers crossed he accepts what's been offered - probably a deal to the end of the season.

Torquay United v Macclesfield Town, Match Day Thread 23/9/17

That's a very good point about McGinty Arcadia. He needs to concentrate 100% on his own game but we have been so exposed down our left flank all season that his own game has suffered. He's not the most gifted of players but when LRT had an upsurge in his form towards the end of last season McGinty l...

Torquay United v Macclesfield Town, Match Day Thread 23/9/17

No coach in the world can legislate for players making the sort of mistake that gave Macclesfield their goal. We just can't retain any sort of possession of the ball and at no point do we get any control of the game. Danny Whittaker for Macclesfield is the perfect example of what we need in the midd...

Torquay United v Macclesfield Town, Match Day Thread 23/9/17

Don't think Rhys Murphy is particularly ' big and mobile' . He says himself he is not a target man and was carrying an injury in pre season - welcome Rhys you are in good company - so he will probably need a bit of time to get up to speed. Pittman out for a couple of weeks as well so maybe there wil...

St Lukes Cup vs Cullompton Rangers

Time to draw a line under this one and, like the team focus on tomorrow's really important game against Macclesfield. It's all about priorities now and getting off the bottom of the league and into a respectable position has to be number one for all of us.

Late & Injury time goals

Merse is spot on with his analysis of Young. A hugely overrated player who has hardly any influence or control of games whatsoever. A couple of ' wonder' free kicks a season is not a big enough contribution in my opinion.

Management options

Sure we could have done better than Fallon but Nicholson decided not to offer Williams a half decent contract( or if he did Williams said no) and instead broght in a load of 'lame' ducks. Another example of his poor management I'm afraid.

Bromley v Torquay United Match Day Thread 12/9/17

Merse is right. The legacy left by Nicholson is dreadful and his claim that they would become a force to be reckoned with once they "bed in" is laughable. The only bedding in to be seen so far is in the sick bed where they are queuing up for places. The only dim light of hope , Fallon excepted, has ...
