Talking Truro

I think the real reason we are in this situation is that the current owner(s) really have no idea how to run a football club. This uncertainty inevitably transmits itself to the management team and hence the players who seem to have lost belief in themselves. Gary Owers has said that there needs to...

The Gaffer

I took my missus to her first game recently, not that interested in football and I don't think has ever been to a game before.

One comment she made was.

"These people are all a bit odd" mmmmmm probably included me in that lol. Cant really disagree when you read some posts either

AFC Fylde v Torquay United 18/11/17

Being a fan of a downward spiralling team (for a number of years) and with owners who most likely do not care what league we end up in is a rather odd thing don't you think. Fans of such clubs hand over their hard earned cash to supposedly support the downward spiralling club. Why? Especially when t...

Boycott

Don't see any problem with registering, starting a new thread and boycotting. Some posters on here treat this place like a closed shop. Do your maths, about 20 regular posters on here and about 1500 Torquay fans who don't bother to either register on a forum or contribute, wonder why? I'm an exilled...

Very confused - what is GI's game?

Interesting history about the greyhound track in Kerswell. My drinking buddies in the Nelson (my local when I'm down there) have mentioned it a few times but I didn't know exactly where it was. What with the proposal for development on Green field sites and on basically anything that can give a prof...

Torquay v Hartlepool 28/10/17

I had a think about the game. I don't think Hartlepool changed anything. I also think that first half was one of the best displays I have seen for a long while. The second half was unfortunate in some ways, like I said the start was disrupted by some injuries, and by the way the long one where the H...

If they reach the playoffs, then this league is very very poor this year

Torquay v Hartlepool 28/10/17

Had no intention of going today, a disastrous day. Was going to do my sport today, van didn't start. So couldn't go. Cost me £124 for a new battery etc. So said to missus I'm going football, out of the blue, she said I will come too, she has never been to a football match with me EVER. So it cost me...

GI put the club 'on the market'

I'm making a general point on people, behaviour, opinions and commenting. There are lots of people out there (work, politics, life in general) who whinge and moan about everything, BUT DO F*CK ALL themselves to try and change things. Sick of it to be honest. And I include myself in that, BUT I do un...

GI put the club 'on the market'

By the way I have no info other than what I read on here.

But the club might not be for sale, but the company that owns it could be.

The extract that was posted seemed to make that assumption.

Nothing would surprise me with this lot

Jamie Reid (again, probably)

In general i just don't get lower league footballers anyway. If i was a young lad and able to earn over £300 a week playing football then i'd be coming off that pitch every game barely able to move. I would hope that with a little extra focus on my ability and improving it then i would be able to g...

List of Players who were rubbish with us, but have gone on to be good

Ok, another thread got me thinking.

For whatever reason, playing out of position, manager didn't like them, doesn't matter. Fans also didn't like them and wanted them out.

So the question is "Name a player who was crap with us and then left and then became good.

I name Billy Bodin

Fa Cup 4th qualifying round Aldershot v Torquay 14/10/17

Nicholson, Owers, Herrera, Hargreaves, O'Farrell - it probably doesn't matter because we're all playing along to Clarke Osborne's tune. The club is owned by a multi-million pound organisation, yet this pretty big club for the level we are at, is even worse off than it was under the David Phillips r...
