Very confused - what is GI's game?

Interesting analysis from CambGull. Anyone else got any thoughts on the maths of it all?

Very confused - what is GI's game?

LOL no worries West Yorkshire... It actually made me laugh to hear someone thought I was Harrop!! I'm not blaming you. At the end of the day, it's pretty difficult to find anything to be positive about at this club right now. And thanks for your post mellow yellow. I wasn't slating WYG for being neg...

Very confused - what is GI's game?

WestYorkshireGull - replying to your comment on the Cullompton game thread: Sorry to disappoint (LOL) old chap, I have never met or set eyes on Geoff and I'm certainly not the man himself! I can't help trying to view everything surrounding TUFC in a positive light, it's just the way I am. It's not t...

St Lukes Cup vs Cullompton Rangers

Great research Bristol Gull. I agree with you Merse, the last thing TUFC needs now is other distractions in the pursuit of cup money. It's an extremely dire situation and is going to need every resource we have left to get us to safety ASAP, let alone a respectable league position. Not sure how much...

Very confused - what is GI's game?

Exactly Merse, it's high time TUFC was run as a professional football club (in other words as a sustainable business) because without that it's the end for the club. For too long, TUFC has been in the hands of lovely and very well-meaning people but who have had no idea how to make a football club a...

Very confused - what is GI's game?

Trouble is, the council aren't exactly a cracking organisation are they! I was at a conference in Exeter recently and heard from their Chief Exec, Karim Hassan. That guy is extremely switched on (hence Exeter's success in the top 5 fastest-growing cities nationally). He is keen to help other local e...

Very confused - what is GI's game?

Exactly Phil. And even if they did want an ex-football ground, there are plenty of better options that would provide a better return (and there must be plenty who are willing to move - Exeter City for example. I know they're renovating a stand currently but their location is much better than Plainmo...

Very confused - what is GI's game?

Great posts Andy and thanks for your thoughts. I agree, it's that unknown 'is it something else' element that has got everyone worried. Osborne is an experienced businessman and yes, his past record isn't at all rosy. If he has managed to make his money purely from squeezing every last penny out of ...

Very confused - what is GI's game?

Haha, no I'm not Geoff!! Just trying to look at this in a balance light :) I don't see the point in shouting out about Harrop's weight and his eating habits. So what if he doesn't eat salad, I know a lot of top-notch people who don't eat their greens and are slightly larger than average! The thing I...

Very confused - what is GI's game?

Thanks Phil, that's what I was hoping. I just can't see any justification or reason for an alternative explanation. Like you, I don't believe they would want to run the club into the ground. There's clearly been investment already, as well as funding the loss that the club is making. That means that...

Can't see that Owers and Kuhl have worked together before (unless I'm missing something) so this must have taken a bit of time to pull together I guess? Seems quite a good catch all round (not that I'm excusing Harrop for the time it's taken and the lack of communication, but yes a considerable amou...

Say it quietly, but it's rather encouraging news isn't it? The proof is in the pudding of course (and by that I mean how they perform long-term) but it will be nice if they can make some instant improvements. Surely can't be difficult! Also it's got to be good that we have a connection with a well-r...

Very confused - what is GI's game?

Hello all, first proper post on here. I've been a reader of the forum for a long time and it's about time I joined in! Lots of questions in my head right now but the most prominent is this: What is GI's intention in buying and investing in TUFC? I'm trying to reason it all out but really struggling:...

Welcome to the site, introduce yourself topic...

Hello all, I'm Sam, a Torquay-born-and-bred (hence my username!) youngish lad. I love my hometown very dearly and have been a follower of the Gulls (although an Arsenal fan) since my early teens. Very sad at the degeneration of the club over recent years culminating in a very frightening ownership b...
