Fucking useless Ref again - According to the commentators Moore had the ball in his hands and was barged into the net by Mullings, but apparently neither the ref or linesman construed that as a foul.

Pathetic.

What I cant understand is how can this team who two matches ago couldn't score if you put it on a plate for them have now hit nine in two matches !.

A bit disappointed with what had happened after being two up but as others have said... if you had offered a point at the start I would have grabbed it

It's been the same ever since we were relegated back to the Conference, under Hargreaves, Cox and Nicholson. The team plays well against the leading teams and has beaten a number of them and got a load of draws as well. Then we go to places like Boreham Wood and get tanked. It's clear that the players at this club over the past 3 seasons have had issues motivating themselves to play smaller teams, almost like they still consider themselves to be better than these teams and don't play to their full potential, despite the current position of the club.

WOW, just wow!! The boys looked absolutely gutted at the end there but they've got a lot they can take from those two games. 4 points against a moneybags side who will be pushing for promotion is not bad going!

Well worth my 16 quid, just a shame we couldnt hang on!!

Crazy game. Obviously I am biased but the 5th looked to be a barge on Moore. Their 3rd goal was after a shove in the box that was also missed. 4th goal should have been avoided if only LRT knew the guy was behind him.

Hard to be too critical given the flow of the game. Both sides managed to slice through defences with ease. Fitzwilliam and Sparkes tore them apart and they did the same to us.

Great entertainment over the two games and 4 points is a very good total against the 3rd placed side.

Whilst gutted to hear that their 5th was likely a foul, I can't begrudge FGR a point. They showed great character to keep going in the two games and I never felt we had secured the points in either fixture, such is the threat of their team.

Excellent points haul for us, and that level of entertainment is something we could only dream of in recent years. Huge credit to the players and Nico for fighting so hard and delivering against a top side at this level.

Let's just hope we can replace Bliss with a decent permanent signing and build on this momentum.

4 points and 9 goals over forest green is more than most expected, regardless of whether today feels like a defeat to some, 4 points is some achievement. Let's not forget it could have been 6-5 at the end. Let's see what the new owners have in mind regarding a few signings,. COYY

Great Advertisement for Torquay playing attacking football to attract more supporters at the next two home games. Against FGR there were 6 points on offer and we took 4 of them, that's impressive, even GI must be impressed (property development aside). Make no mistake FGR are a good side so if we can maintain the same momentum in the next two home games, how are Boreham Wood or Working going to cope against us, they don't have the same firepower as FGR.

Well how can we even begin to put that match into words. Am I glad, I went today, despite the two late goals, oh hell yes, this ones going to live long in the memory.

Torquay started with a good solid shape, however, so slow, perhaps nervous, as Boxing day though, bags a character, the team came to life after our first real attacking move ended up in the bag of the net at the back stick, FGR would be undone by an indicial move, shortly afterwards, but I always felt, and guess not the only one, FGR had more goals in them.

This game had everything, in some way a great advertisement, in others a coaching manual horror show, as some good goals, were matched by some poor defending from both sides. FGR'S fifth goal, just being honest didn't think there was much contact (was right behind the goal, looking right down at Moore) the FGR player went up with the keeper as he's allowed to do, made a nuisance and Moore has let the ball slip.

I'm feeling more proud than gutted, the team ran themselves into the ground, and fought for everything, we can't ask for more, and we've taken a point more from this game than most of thought, and 4 from 6 over the two, yes, would have took that prior.

Decent ground to visit, and have FGR got the most posh sounding stadium announcer in football. Great turn out as usual from our fans, in good voice as normal, as I said on the way, FGR may have money to buy a team, but their money can't buy the support we have. COYY

Forever, unless it was you, there was a guy who said exactly the same thing as we were leaving the ground regarding the money situation. We have exactly zero pounds but I am always proud of the fans as they always seem to put in a good shift, especially away from home, and definitely today!!

Regarding the fifth goal, I'm with you and had a very good view of it too.Until I see it again, I'm convinced there guy has done nothing wrong and simply jumped alongside Moore but he's spilled it. I'm no keeping expert, but he probably would have been better off palming that for a corner. It was a horrible looping ball to have to deal with
