The Truth Is Finally Out.....

Yes; it's taken almost two years before this subject is being publicised with the full attention it deserves.......that's how easy it has been for Osborne and GI to slither in and build a vipers' nest in sleepy old Torquay...... Brent Pilnick ~ the first local journalist to treat this matter with t...

Everyone who thinks that the article was vapid nonsense and is still angered by the HE's attitude towards the club's fans should post a comment on that article............. You'll not find one from me on there; I've been blocked for ages. The cosy little world of Torbay Toryism censors serious deba...

Absolute arrogant bollocks to claim that Quinta is connected to the aspirations of Osborne as his own 'revelation' and total disrespect to say "The attacks from a small minority of so-called fans have been quite personal at times and totally unnecessary" But that's Jim Parker and for his informatio...

I don't have a problem with that; I am repeating what Dave Phillips told me himself, not setting myself up as judge and jury ~ I wonder of messrs Masters and Osborne were muddled up by your impeccable source.

I regularly get my kids in for nothing at Isthmian League clubs and the end result is me spending more than I normally would if admission was charged for because it all goes over the bar/tea bar and food outlets...they're not stupid these little clubs and have more business savvy than our lot.

Over a number of separate posts dealing with each location Haldon Rambler sets out a timeline of Osborne's involvement at Hereford, Bristol and locations where new stadia has been talked about by Osborne and not materialised. The cross reference to filed accounts during the relevant periods is most...

I'm of the view that the main opponents to community ownership and hence, the trust were Merv Balson and Pete Masters. Too aloof and arrogant to admit they needed educating on the concept and dismissed it out of hand because they couldn't see it paying next month's overheads. Has anyone on here ever...

Not always Lucy.......I could name a few who have gone bust and I enjoyed one very good year when I cam out well on top of the bookies ~ but then the next year they came well out on top of me. No doubt when they were paying me they had laid those bets off; but you know what I'm going to tell you now...

46k loss, how must Thea be thinking losing 3 million . He's a bookmaker he can recoup that easily. However I do applaud him initially for taking the club over. It's a poisoned chalice and it shouldn't be. I don't think you know much about bookmakers! Dave Phillips is a septuagenarian singular indep...

To be fair to Dave Phillips and set the record straight when it was stated on here earlier today that: "Messrs Phillips and Balson presented Mr Osborne as 'a consultant'" ; Dave Phillips has told me that Osborne was introduced to the mayor as a potential owner of Torquay United who reckoned he could...

There have, of course, been meetings between representatives of the council, both from an elected point of view (the mayor, Cllr Haddock, et al) and from an officer point of view (Messrs Montgomery and Mowatt, for example - and, yes, I count the TDA as 'Council': we pay their salaries, after all) a...

Parker is the editor of a newspaper that allowed Clarke Osborne to say this in his paper on January 23rd without challenge: “I fully intend that we will deliver our plans for a new United stadium in this calendar year. Do I believe that there will be a fantastic scheme at the end of this? Yes I cer...

Wait, so Harrop ISN'T Osborne's brother-in-law? So he says.........but he also alludes to 'personal postcodes' being put on this website. Hello? You can get Clarke Osborne's 'personal' postcode from this website: https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/00263234/officers That's in the public doma...
