Eastleigh are actually pretty sh*t so get the new signings to hit the ground running and yes, I can see a 2-1 win here.
How many times have you seen them play this season, Andy? Yes they're definitely underperforming but they are far from shit.
Doesn't really matter how many times he has seen them play. If Andy says something then Andy is right. Fed up with it! Supported about 15 clubs before finding Torquay United. He did join in very enthusiastically and went to loads of games, but then buggered off and went to support York City. Probably against all expectations York sank faster than our terminally ill TUFC so back he came to offer sage advice! He then tries to take on merse who would eat him and spit him out for breakfast. As I believe strongly that most people are decent and honest, I think that Andy probably is too. But I do struggle with the daily comments from a York City supporter about a club many on here have supported for 50-60 years. You couldn't make it up, but it says volumes about Torquay supporters that we put up with it.

5 minutes or 50yrs as a fan of TUFC does that matter???
its a forum isn't it???
about peoples opinions and freedom to post...
I mean, for gods sake, we had to put up with that fella from Cumbria didn't we???
I'd rather have andy on here than a few others that post that's for sure.

I think Stefano pretty much sums it up.

Don't think it is a request for Andy to stop posting but an expression of feelings about the post, which I share.

If you post certain views on certain topics, sometimes you are going to get called out.

Come on lads, bring home the three points. Eradicate those silly errors that lead to cheap goals and we'll be in with a shout!

We'll only be in with a shout if we actually get more than the usual one or two attackers in the opposition penalty area; it's difficult to see how we expect to score when we do not attack en masse and build the pressure which enables other teams to score easily when the ball goes loose.
Our throws-in are invariably aimed up the line to two heads surrounded by four or five opponents - better teams take throws to feet and build on that possession.
We need a left-footed corner taker from the right wing to put in-swinging pressure on the keeper and defence.
We need to vary crosses into the box instead of just punting the ball at or beyond the far post in the hope that a forward might be there to score with a worldy bullet header.
And make the opposition keeper earn his money....
Or is this rocket science beyond us?

Don't worry Stefano, Andy's ok; like SNW says. He went away to his local club for a while after a few years of following TUFC, & even tried living without footie altogether. But TUFC got under his skin, just like it has with a lot of other people. That's why we still keep turning up, even though the footie's crap. Some of his warblings are 'tongue in cheek ' & I don't expect Merse minds too much ! Rule of forums...if it irks you...scroll past !!!!!Unless you're called Taxilady & you argue of course...
We'll Be Back ! TTID

Well it really is now or never for us, we must win today and next saturday, but how can you be confident
when we have won 2 out of 13 at home and have 5 new players, cant score goals, slack marking in defence and a lack of fighting spirit ! Just keep hoping I guess.
