Super Kev To You

What absolute tosh you talk most of the time. You would rather have Nicholson in charge than Steve Evans? - Presumably cause Nicholson drives the team bus and visits people in hospital? That might make him a nicer bloke than Evans but it sure doesn't make him a better manager that's for sure. You h...

Torquay United v Dagenham and Redbridge - Matchday thread - 17/02/18

Keating and Williams did work very well together last year and Romain isn’t too dissimilar to Keating, so would go with that.

Evans impressed me 2nd half last week and would bring him in for Gowling with the same reshuffle.

Really need Gowling fit ASAP though, is there news?

Maidenhead v Torquayunited 10/2/18

What a great, battling performance that was. Anymore rain and it would have been in doubt, for sure. Battling yes, but I thought we got the ball down well and played in the first half and counter attacked just as well in the second. Barnes, Dowling, Young and Evans all have decent quality on the bal...

Maidenhead v Torquayunited 10/2/18

Despite the off field crap we are going through, I REALLY don’t want to drop down another league and if we are going to stay up, the tide has to turn now.

That’s why I’m making the journey and bringing two of my mates with me! We can only hope this is the start of the escape. COYY

Talking Torquay

Another cheery and enthusiastic podcast which I would highly recommend. However, after last week's clanger when you said that Paul Cox was Barrow's manager, I was surprised to hear your comment that you knew nothing about Maidenhead's manager, Alan Devonshire. Is that the former England internation...

Torquay United v Barrow 3/2/18

We seriously need to wrap Gowling in cotton wool, he is so vital. If he plays the remainder of the season and we can find a goal scoring knack, we could do it.

Guy Gnabouyou leaves!

He showed better touches and passing in 30 minutes against Gateshead than Keating has for the past 2 months.

Gary Owers

I don’t doubt Owers’ ability to setup a team to win matches - I think we’ve seen that from the improved team performances, some results, and the relative improvement of the players that were already in the squad when he arrived. However, I do doubt his ability to bring in players of the sufficient q...

Torquay v Gateshead

I thought in terms of shape and closing down we were setup fine, as we have been for a while. Until 80 minutes what did Gateshead create? Nothing. We do well to win the ball back a lot of the time, but we are just lacking quality going forward. Mcquoid, Reid and Keating were poor, Keating’s touch wa...

Torquay v Hartlepool 28/10/17

Those who fail to close down and prevent crosses are the first priority I would venture to suggest and if intelligence is correct, then moves are afoot to address that immediate problem. Been calling for Higgins to be dropped for over a month now and it seems his failings were at fault for the firs...

Jazzi Barnum Bobb

I remember Jazzi from his time at Watford Academy when my son was there. I think you could discover he is being lined up to put pressure on Higgins to perform more efficiently in his current first team slot. Why should his name be a wind up? Good, Higgins has failed to live up to his pre-season hyp...

Jamie Reid (again, probably)

I would never have a go at one of our players during a game , don't think it helps anyone. But I must say Reid is one of the worst players ever to put on a United shirt, no pace, can't beat a man , no football brain and never gets stuck in basically clueless If you read what I wrote you will see th...

Torquay v Dover Saturday 7/10/17

I actually enjoyed watching their play - i would happily go to watch them every week if that is their usual standard. Really? We have different preferences on style of play then. I can’t remember Dover stringing more than four passes together and the amount of goal kicks we had because they just ho...
