Should Nicholson be sacked

Stewart, on TFF, has provided an interesting set of statistics where he has compared results v top half of the table and those against bottom half of the table. Against the top: P 18 W 6 D 7 L 5 Pts 25 Against the bottom: P 17 W 3 D 1 L 13 Pts 10 What would that lead one to conclude? Is that a team ...

Where do we go from here?

It's one thing TUST asking supporters to contribute £100 for what essentially is a hypothetical scenario and quite another to ask them to contribute £100 to actually buy and save the club. It's no wonder the first option didn't raise much money as it was never going to result in the purchase of the ...

Where do we go from here?

He's been isolated for the duration of this season. No experienced manager would have stuck at it like he has as was proved only last season. Decision after decision has backfired and each time he's left to carry the burden on his own. He's not stupid, his name is doing the rounds! Like you, Dave, ...

Leroy Rosenior

It's available on Amazon. My copy arrived yesterday. Surprisingly, the bit on his first spell, including the promotion season, is fairly brief - roughly ten short pages (with big font) long and the 10 minute reign, just a page and a half. Kind of regretting buying it. Left Foot in the Grave it's not...

A different face is needed. I don't think Harrop is the answer to be fair but let's face it; it can't get any worse.

Torquay Utd V Sutton Utd 25/02

The Facebook post is probably about trying to deflect blame from himself. To be posting that quickly possibly illustrates a man more concerned with self-preservation than addressing the issues. But perhaps solving the issues are beyond him. It certainly looked that way. Certainly, things can't get a...

Torquay Utd V Sutton Utd 25/02

Nicholson's buck-passing on the radio was a little sickening to listen to. He neglected to mention the stupid substitution of Williams, the only player who managed to have a shot against a pretend goaly. And the half-witted lemmings, clapping the team off the edge of a cliff at the game's conclusion...

Torquay v Macclesfield, National League, Sat. 11 Feb. 2017, 3:00 pm

Just over 1300 home fans there today. Pitiful but utterly deserved crowd. The club have done nothing to warrant bigger crowds or our continued support.

And how many of that meagre gathering were season ticket holders? The club will be lucky if it made £5k Fromm that match.

Bromley vs Torquay 04/02/17

The very real danger is the acceptance of this sort of outcome as a reasonable one. I barely shrugged my shoulders, didn't bother listening because the outcome was pretty much a foregone conclusion. I expect us to lose to clubs like Bromley, Sutton, Boreham Wood, the sort of clubs we used to think a...

Face from the past

I remember loads of kids at school having the buckta kit from 79/80. As far as I remember, Stuart Morgan (who Dave Webb appointed) resigned to go to Weymouth. I'm not sure he got the contract he was after at Plainmoor and as such Cyril came in. Pope also appointed Dave Smith. Two proper managers, th...

Face from the past

I'm not sure if it is just an urban myth, but I seem to recall the crowd shouting to Pope to jump. I had forgotten about the benches in the Mini Stand. When I started to watch TUFC, the Mini Stand was where the more youthful, skinhead element would stand, until they gravitated to the Pop Side. Crowd...

Face from the past

Akinfenwa also scored plenty of goal that season. It was largely because of him that we only narrowly went down. Had we not had to rely on the likes local league players like Bond, Gosling and Story plus the ridiculous saga with keepers, bayo's goals would have been enough to keep us up.

I had wondered the same thing about Lew Pope recently.
