Guiseley v Torquay United

That's just mutual respect for two wise old sages Wivel.

Unlike Southampton Gull and Nico which is bordering on worrying ;-)

Gawd knows who Sg is going to fixate on now but my moneys on Fallon and his man bun :O :O :O

Well Wivel - at the risk of having my account closed a la Ray for a non-Torquay United post, what happend to Whitby Town yesterday - a 3 - 1 home defeat against Stoubridge?? But a good mid-week 4 - 1 win against Stalybridge. I suspect you will tell me wthat Stourbridge will be one of the stronger sides in the division as they were last season, whereas Stalybridge won't be ..... I think you mentioned that a Whitby player had been transferred for a five-figure sum. Has any of the money been re-invested in the team?

Sticking to non-TUFC news (i.e. avoiding the gloom and doom on here), I see that Tavistock, Barnstaple & Bideford all successfully negotiated the preliminary round of the F.A. Cup yesterday. Bliddy good job we don't have to play in the Preliminary Round.

What is actually worrying my old fruit is your obsession that grown men with a mutual respect for each other must be after each others sphincter. I would suggest you try knocking down the dividing wall in your own house and actually try to get some. It might stop you fantasising about what other men are up to ;)

Like Tomogull, I actually agree with your previous post.

I'm afraid, tomogull, that little if any of the money we made from the sale of Dale Hopson to Blyth Spartans (everyone knows the amount but we are [more or less] prohibited from saying) has been re-invested in new players. Hopson was a one-man show last season (well worth the price of my season ticket) but this season we're back to normal (mid or low-mid table). Mind you, compared with the misfortunes of TUFC, Whitby is a well-run and financially stable club but - and it's a big but - will never achieve promotion (which is what everyone stated they wanted at the AGM) unless they bite the bullet and invest in much better players than they have at present. The 4-1 win against Stalybridge was convincing, but the 1-3 defeat to Stourbridge (they parked a ten-man bus in the second half) wasn't. Still, there's no sense of despair and fear [of relegation] as is apparent on these TUFC pages.

You have to be clinically insane to be a Barrow fan on a TUFC forum...

Don't know about clinically. Just a wind up merchant really. All this banging on about blogs and e-mails when he knows the correct terms is a wind up, as is starting a match prediction thread for games when he knows we don't do prediction threads but do matchday threads. Yes it may be a matter of semantics, but he has been told so to continue after being told is just totally disrespectful. Which in fact is what he has been most of the time. He is member of the month because he votes for himself, another wind up.

Next time he sticks up a prediction thread somebody else should immediately put up a matchday thread. We can then all post on the matchday thread leaving just the one solitary opening post on the prediction thread.

Just an irritating little fly buzzing around the ear of a pedigree stallion! ;-)

It is important to you, you plum! you should substantiate your claim then, so how did we play different? Did we have width? Did we defend better? Did we take our chances?
have you not bothered reading the reports then plank????
and read my response (above) to what you asked...
and of course the fact that you weren't actually there.....
Gosh your replies are monotonous
Monotonous that's almost as good as your username. Seriously arrywithanh you and ray should just go on goggle box together.Just like the tv show it's full of bollocks and maybe then when you have your claim to fame you can both bugger of this forum.

Just back from a weekend up north hence a 'late' posting and to be honest haven't read all the posts in this thread so pols if I repeat. However, it's prob been said we threw the match away in the last ten minutes. Atrocious first thirty minutes where it was all hoof and hope. No midfield - in fact I had to ask my mate at half time if Lathrope was playing! Defence were all over the place and they kept threading balls down the right with numerous crosses flying around the box. Their centre forward and number 9 were running us ragged. Corners kept causing us problems with the bar being hit and sure enough their goal was inevitable. So, I was pretty amazed when we did score and that put us on the front foot to go 2-1 up. Second half was completely different. They took one of their good defenders and the dangerous number 9 off - even their fans were stunned. Started well for them but then we pushed the ball around on the ground and were peppering their goal. In fact one occasion we had it in their box for what seemed like an age but the eventual shot was blasted over the top. Lasted for a good thirty mins when we should have gone further ahead. But the usual last ten mins when we just fell back on defence and gave the goals away. Ended with McGinty having a blazing row with the team after the final whistle.
Sad thing is when we do play football we have the beating of teams but we just can't seem to play for 90 mins.
