Joining forces with truro ?

Yes, from their name, we’ll use the words ‘Football Club’ and from our name we’ll use the words, Torquay United.

Torquay United Association Football Club - Sole Director Clarke Osborne

For what it's worth, Chris Rich yesterday confirmed the Five Year plan is alive and well and in draft form. When or whether it'll see the light of day wasn't discussed. (Target Number One: To get out of the National League!!) So when the idea of a five year plan was announced in December 2016, they...

Ambition or Submission?

I think this has always been somewhat destined.

tufc in crisis

Good to see that more supporters are joining TUST. The more who do, the stronger the voice of supporters, and at some point, when Clarke Osborne sees through what is probably his plan, TUST is all there will be.

Clarke Osborne the saviour of the club? Seriously?

No wonder property developers can come in and slowly suffocate football clubs when you have supporters calling them saviours.

Can’t people see that Osborne is playing the long game? For heaven’s sake.

Where is Clarke Osborne?

Now that all the convoluted and stage managed nonsense to discredit the message I have as regards the astonishing claim that 'all the problems' are on the pitch has died down from earlier in the day ~ no they are not! You truly are a pathetic man Merse your ignominy within recent posts just proves ...

Wrexham v Torquay 6/1/18

You’re correct, Brucie. Nothing Owers had done as a manager prior to his arrival at Torquay, suggested he was the man to save us. The fact is we even stupidly poached him from another club. Paid compensation for him. His impact has been zero. In much the same way it felt with Alan Knill, Owers and T...

Is this all 'FAKE NEWS'

Think it depends on how much of the budget Nicho blew on signing loads of crocks. Nicholson is at fauLt for lumbering us, in much the same way Alan Knill did, with injury-prone journeymen which provide the bulk of the squad. However, if they really were the lottery winners he proclaimed, then Owers ...

Is this all 'FAKE NEWS'

The excuse trotted out that we’d have all been happy with Nicholson’s signings on paper, is the same one trotted out by defenders of Alan Knill when he was signing the likes of Karl Hawley and Ben Harding. We’re not the experts but we’d have to do well to mess it up anymore than the managers we have...

Are these latest signings the last roll of the dice for TUFC

To absolve Owers and Kuhl of any blame and simply accept it is down to Nicho is nonsense. Nicho signed players that were injury prone and probably past it. For doing so, he paid with his job in the middle of August, almost 5 months ago. New managers are brought in to improve the situation but judgin...

Wrexham v Torquay 6/1/18

The signings in the summer were indeed poor; the signings made by Owers have been even worse. The reason he has the job here was because the signings made in the summer were poor and caused his predecessor to get the sack. He was brought in to make things better. He hasn’t and has shown he is nothin...

Wrexham v Torquay 6/1/18

Appoint a mediocre Conference South Manager and a mediocre Conference South team is what you become. Just the latest in a long line of utterly dire managers we have appointed since 2013.

Next season

What will of course make season more difficult in Conf South, will be the likely inclusion of Hereford FC in that league. Hereford had smaller crowds than us as Hereford United, and I think the longer we drift under GI, the lower we will sink. Supporter ownership has functioned well enough at Exeter...

We may also like to look at the likes of Kidderminster.... Stockport... York.... all three relegated from this division and (some would say, quite rightly) expecting an immediate return.... as it is, they sit 7th, 8th and 9th respectively and unless moneybags Salford capitulate in a catastrophic wa...

Great appointment.

Hargreaves was indeed Manager when we were relegated. Of course, he was lumbered with the dross Alan Knill left him and for much of the next season as well, but he still managed to accrue more points per game with Alan Knill’s team than Alan Knill did. Alan Knill built the team that got relegated fr...
