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...

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

Forgot to mention the pending return of Jake Gosling and Ryan Clarke. The squad is looking stronger thank goodness. Let's hope we keep everyone fit Not meaning to be pedantic, but it's Pittman who is close to returning. Gosling with his broken bone will be out for a good month or two yet. GO will h...

The Task Ahead with 33 Games to Play

Usually this league consists of 3 or4 teams who are miles ahead of the others. That’s not happening this year and it’s a huge, huge opportunity missed that we are not challenging in the top half.

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

My second game of the season. I concluded after the first against Boreham Wood (and many games last season) that the problems with our team were with the management and that first half performance has gone a little of the way to vindicate that. We were setup up so much better than at any point in th...

Management options

smw1989, I don't know you but comments such as yours show you up for what you are rather than anything else. In my book such statements have no place in this forum. If you want to criticise, fair enough but do so in a constructive way. The salad thing in the summer clearly got his back up so if cal...

Woking v Torquay match thread Monday 28/8/17 3pm

Only thing you can do in this situation is bet on the opposition each week. Woking were 7/5 today, easiest £140 off a ton I will ever make.

All we can do is hope and pray the new manager can work wonders. If not (and yes, I do realise our problems like a lot deeper than that) it'll be all over.

SACK NICHOLSON!!

I have backed Kevin up until now, mainly taking into account a lack of backing from owners and how he has spoken about the club and what he wants to do with the side, and have been waiting for this season to start to hopefully see a turn in fortunes. I'm afraid as the players emerged and lined up fo...

Gerring signs - 1 year deal

Also sounded like he was a popular guy in the dressing room and a big part of the team spirit This is the only reason I'm ok with this signing. It's clear Nico puts a great emphasis on spirit and desire so if he's proved he's got the character then great; but he really is a seriously limited footba...
