Yes great - we have three easier fixtures coming up. But Gateshead won't be anywhere near the top of the table come the end of the season, so anyone saying this was a tough fixture is kidding themselves.

Its all very well using the opposition as an excuse but Tranmere lost at home to Sutton today. We couldn't beat them when they had nine men.

Lets hope we can get a couple of wins on the board but with our injuries we will more than likely lose these as well.
Tranmere only had 9 men for the last 10 minutes so that stat is misleading.

You're right, however, Gateshead possibly might not be near the top in May. We also have two weaker (on paper) sides to come. If we don't get a decent points return from the next three games, we can start to worry a bit more.
TUFC never fails to let its fanbase down.

Any team that has Luke Young in it is going nowhere but unfortunately KN thinks he's the business. Personally I think he c**p. The other thing I can't understand is that basis to getting results for any team is not to conceded but we can't seem to do that consistently, which amazes me as both the management team were defenders. Very poor and I can't see how they are going to progress. Well I can actually and it begins with dropping Young, the weakest link.
AHAHAHAHAHAHAH 'going nowhere' hahaha. Flipper for gaffer :lol: :lol: :lol:

What. An. Idiot!
Awww that's just the best comeback. Congratulations fella your obviously very clever. What would we do without you :clap:

I appreciate other peoples opinion, it's what forums are for. That's just mine.

I don't see a queue of other clubs lining up to sign him and that also tells me something.

I'm surprised that Exeter have never gone in for Young, he could do a job for them. The only reason we still have him is his desire to stay in Devon for family reasons and perhaps his injury record - but if he was open to a move I bet Eastleigh etc wouldn't think twice about taking a risk on him.

Scrap my previous observation, I fancy seeing flipper in the boardroom. #flipper4owner. He 'Will Make Torquay Great Again'. First policy; no good central midfielders allowed. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Burnhamgull - yes they only nine men for ten minutes, but had 10 for most of the second half. The point I am trying to make is that most of the apologists for Nicholson were wanking themselves silly because we had got a point against the mighty Tranmere who apparently had already won the league before the season had kicked off.

But they lost at home today - no great shakes, that's why they are in this league. On Tuesday it was the mighty Aldershot . Today it was Gateshead who apparently "blow hot and cold" (as this is another excuse for getting hammered)

That's all it is - excuses all day long. Nicholson is a good manager really but there is always a reason why the opposition manage to beat us. It is complete claptrap.

Have to find a good central midfielder first eh !!

I'll leave the boardroom to you. You seem to know it all. :bow:

While you're at it you can pick the team as well given the obvious knowledge you have.

It's difficult to write anything constructive at the moment, when will this torment end for Torquay fans? There is no way that anyone can paper over the fact that this is another really poor start to the season, and the whole approach of the club has to change including the manager. The excuses we use week in week out apply to every club yet we are one of the biggest clubs in the league (easily top six), it's like one of the top six Premier League now about to start the third season battling relegation for a third season running, it would never happen. I just hope that we don't allow this situation to continue into the season for much longer. There is absolutely no reason why we should not be at the very least competing in this league, which we aren't. If we were being honest with ourselves how many of us seriously thought that we would get a result today - at Gateshead (sorry not one of the best teams in the league with a gate the third of what we have got last two home games), it's a culture/mentality that has existed for a few years at Torquay and it has to change - soon. If only the players showed the same level of compassion, energy, desire and heart as the Torquay fans show then we would not be in this continual mess.

Sorry but after even three games, two of which I've watched, we are only going one way under this manager and that's not up.

Come on people let's get some perspective. Three truly difficult games carrying more than average injury burden. If we are in this position after 10 to 12 games I might understand the moaning. We all knew the first 3 fixtures were a pig. Let's be honest and not just crucify people.

We are being Honest and realistic and it's not three games, it's three seasons and a poor pre-season. The mentality that "don't worry it's only three games...." is the reason we are in this mess!!!

Seems to me that there are more posters wanting a change than others who think it's too soon. But just reflect on the last two seasons under Nicholson. Yes a good player but as a manager no way.
