I'm pretty sure that in most recent seasons the early bird season ticket offer has been announced before we've even finished our season. An example being at the end of 2013/14, where the Early bird period began in mid-March, so we knew about them long before the season was over.

Absolutely. No idea what threepiglets is on about whilst trying to defend the club's owners ad nauseam. There is information on season tickets and early bird offers by now every year. This year is the exception.
Indeed. Surprisingly 3LP has gone quiet on his argument - it's funny what the facts can do!

The FACTS are that the club have made no effort whatsoever to interact with the supporters over any form of sales or is even attempting to get them on board for next season.......

No season ticket offer
No announcement of pre-season friendlies
No statement on admission prices
No attempt to market any new replica kit for next season
No attempt to utilise the stadium facilities to open revenue streams through the summer


It's obvious this is either abject inability to run a professional football club on behalf of the sole owner by his staff or a blatant manoeuvre to send it into a comatose state. With half a million of debt now stacked against the club by Osborne rather than spending half a million of his own money; this is a very dangerous and potentially fatal state into which the football club is being sent.

It is essential that Clarke Osborne does not get the freehold he desires because it is becoming more obvious with every one of these days that passes that the intention could well be to render the business mortally wounded thus making it prone to being wound up and the vacant possession of the freehold becoming vastly more valuable overnight.

The Mayor doesn't appear to care about it; neither the council or their officers and the Herald Express doesn't want YOU to know about it. It's a conspiracy of silence that only the trust and the two forums that have taken an active lead in keeping people in the picture at the expense of being personally insulted by weasels like Tim Herbert (and threelittlepiglets, if they are by any chance a different person) the abject silence of the TUOSC and Bernard Noble and it is time to realise just who is on your side as a supporter ~ them or the 'Keyboard Wankers' that he referred to whilst indulging in the delight of Dave Phillips and Merv Balson who delivered the sacrificial lamb into the clutches of Osborne under the Svengali influence of Peter Masters.

This is panning out as many feared.We have the petition, am sure most on here have emailed the MP, mayor and councillors to death. I am 200 miles from Torquay and am not as close to the inner workings of the club and local politics as others. My question is what else we can do as individuals or collectively to save the club from what seems a slow painful death? It could be that things are going on in the background with TUST, but it seems to me as a minimum we need this to be a high profile topic in the General Election and not lose focus between now and end of July.I cannot believe the HE is behaving as it is. Are there any other outlets down there that can get the message out ? Am brain wracking so feel free to shoot me down or make suggestions.

I have just phoned the Club.
The Early Bird season tickets are as follows:

Bristows bench & Family Stand...... Adult £275. Concession £200.

Pop Side.................................Adult £250 Concession ?

The offer is up until June 6th I believe.

I was told that it would be announced later today. :scarf:

The FACTS are that the club have made no effort


Wow that was a bold statement - I'm with you in part but I am trying to keep optimistic for next season (league champions, quarter finals FA Cup etc.). All a dream - maybe - but its that dream that keeps me supporting the team and fighting for its future. What I do agree on is that GI's approach to handling of club administration has not been endearing and much is done by stealth with little regard to good PR. The abject silence of the Mayor and Council on the freehold of Plainmoor is disconcerting whilst the Herald Express remains a joke!

There is more money than ever in the lower leagues, unfortunately it’s just concentrated in small pockets so Torquay like other non-league clubs are under pressure to find ways to compete with clubs that have bottomless pits of money, Eastleigh, Forest Green etc. To this end I would like to think the half a million of debt now stacked against the club by Osborne is done on good business ground where he can surrender those losses to the profitable side of GI. We know he is not a Torquay fan but a least he does not have the football drug that suddenly switches him over into crazed decisions. He will I sure do all his decisions from a commercial perspective. He has talked about a sustainability model and we have to admit there is probably a ceiling the club can hit under the current system because what we haven't got is a very large bank account behind us.

The irony of all of this is I don't nor do I believe others think that Osbourne should not make a financial return on his investment into Torquay United. All most of us ever wanted is for him to be open and transparent namely to guarantee a new ground with a 99 year lease no less favourable that the current lease so the club survives for the foreseeable future. In exchange for the stadium being built he then gets (when built) the freehold of Plainmoor to make his return of investment in the club. Yet, the grey area still remains will the club still be here after he gets his hands on the freehold
