GI the Death of TUFC as we know it

When your new consortium install Fat Harrop on a juicy wage and their sole plan for recruitment is to ask the management team to reduce the commitments in their contracts to get transfer targets in you know you truly have scumbags running the club. Honour the mans contract, Harrop. Get off your fat...

GI the Death of TUFC as we know it

I have no issue with those last 2 statements actually. But we are where we are. Never liked that statement but it suits this post. I wont support the current owners, so from my view a Pheonix club is best, maybe not for many on here, so be it. It wouldn't be easy I know, but I would support such a ...

Torquay v Eastleigh 21.3.17

If only a few more referees were strong enough to take this sort of action, I would imagine it could be eradicated quite quickly. The sort of time wasting seen last night by Stack in the Eastleigh goal really did take it to another level though and I said at the time that (no exaggeration here) I r...

Whatever went wrong Thea had the best intentions for the football club. In stark contrast I believe with the current owners. And that makes the difference to me, I know I'm in a minority, so be it I don't care. And yes I will say I told you so. And I fully expect the same back if I'm proved wrong, ...

If anybody was stupid, it was those actually running the club over the past few years, but again, stupidity is the wrong word to describe such things as lack of foresight and poor decision-making, inadequacy and incompetence, lack of forceful and effective leadership, which, among other things, per...

Can we Survive? 10 Games Remaining.

For those counting on Tranmere beating our rivals in the last couple of games, they may be safe in the playoffs by then and resting players. They can't be trusted. Remember 2005 :@

NIcho has been given "a little bit of extra funding".

Does he have the contacts to spend it wisely?
I guess that's what we have Dave Hedges for now.

Dave Thomas is fairly critical of the behaviour of previous regimes when it comes to scouting and player recruitment. "it's always tough to replace players like that, but United did not even come close. And as the purse-strings tightened, so things became progressively harder. That's when United sho...

Would you go and watch Torquay United in the Conference South?

Sadly I will bow out and restart supporting my local rugby club - even though I have supported United since 1972 and brought up my lad to support them. I couldn't bring myself to support any other football team so that will be me finished with football. Depressed. But what happens if we by some mir...

Where do we go from here?

I see a lot of people saying a phoenix club is the answer, some have been beating this drum for weeks and weeks. Well if you think this is the way forward stop talking about it and just bloody do it if you think it's such a good idea! There is nothing stopping anyone from starting a football team in...
