Agreed, any team with limited resources but have a winning mentality and a love for the game deserve everything they get.

It's certainly not what I wanted - I think we have really reached rock bottom now.
Sadly I think rock bottom is still very much ahead of us
I think your spot on there

Just listened to GO's after match comments. I hope that I'm wrong but he doesn't sound as if he knows how to stop the rot.

Sadly nowhere near rock bottom. There's always a new low around the corner with tufc.

Just got back. The team played well today our problem area is the last third and the wide players are not producing any quality crosses. Murphy is playing back to goal and is an easy target to mark. We need to be more direct and I hope Jordan Lee is back in the side next week as he is direct and has the pace to get behind the opposition. Dowling would improve the side as well then we need a centre forward.
McGinty Young Davis Doran and Higgins did well today. The side is improving.

I don't think the performance was as bad as some are saying and maybe are being guided by the result and being out of the Cup yet again before it has ever got started for us.....

That said, it wasn't that good either and the pitch looked a 'bit dead, tufty and long' after another game on it last night. The ball didn't 'fizz about' as it would on a really top notch condition surface of that sort of investment and that (I feel) contributed to the rather flat and slow motion atmosphere which left one mentally screaming 'this is an FA cup tie for goodness sake!'

With people vocally on his back, Reid isn't going to exude the confidence and decision making his role demands and once again Young shrunk so far from where he could do some damage when we went a goal down; he might as well not have been out there for the last ten minutes. That was when sleeves needed to be rolled up, the game taken to the home side and a real effort to salvage a replay made. But there was nothing; it was as if they were content to play out a single goal defeat.........no leaders, no inspiration, no pride in performance ~ and then they come over looking for applause! :|

I agree with this entirely. He is right though when he says that playing ok is one thing but we need something more to start winning games. After six games in charge we have seen the retun of some key players from injury and we still cant get over the line.
The trouble is he has no idea what it is we need other than just to plug away at cutting out the mistakes.

I had thought that after a month we would see some sort of improvement, based on the fact that I had believed that it takes 21 days or so to learn new habits. However, a little googling this morning reveals that it can take up to 66 days for automatic behaviours to bed in (with some people taking up to 254 days for new habits to become second nature). So we could be looking at gone the end of this season before some of our squad 'get it'.

Of course, one could argue that surely paid professionals - committed athletes - should take less time than us plebs to pick up new ways of doing things?

I wonder whether, when considering taking the job, Mr Owers looked at TUFC and thought: under-performing 'big'/league two club; just how hard can it be?

I think his bubble must have been well and surely burst (if it hadn't already) by the fact that we are so poorly regarded that even agents of third-rate* footballers can't be arsed to ensure their charges turn up to try out for us.

* No disrespect intended, but we're not Man City, really, are we?

Nicholson, Owers, Herrera, Hargreaves, O'Farrell - it probably doesn't matter because we're all playing along to Clarke Osborne's tune. The club is owned by a multi-million pound organisation, yet this pretty big club for the level we are at, is even worse off than it was under the David Phillips regime. GI have owned us for almost a year but all we have seen is decline on the field and a new kit and badge.

On the surface of it, the appointment of an experienced managerial team, should have seen some sort of positive impact. there are players in that squad who are better than the bottom of the National League, so we should be seeing some improvements or at least signs of it, and perhaps we are. The previous manager was poor, but if nothing changes with GI's own man in charge then I think some heat really needs to be turned back on Clarke Osborne.

Just what is the point of supporters, 'loyally' turning up each week when the club's own malevolent ownership appears to be conspiring against it? I just feel now, that when I go and hand over £15, I'm simply lining Clarke Osborne's pocket. Our football club is dead, succumbing to the parasites. It's like a zombie, masquerading as human, just sucking the life out of everyone remaining.

5 years ago, had we bumped into Clarke Osborne, we wouldn't have just handed him our money but that's what we do now.

Scott Rendell interview says it all about one goal being enough "did not think Torquay were ever going to hurt us"...

His interview is what I felt as well until, Young hit his free kick which the keeper saved at that time I thought we could get a draw as we were copping well at the back bar for one that hit a post.

The game was not as bad as people are suggesting most of us in the coach thought we did ok but you can see the wide players don't provide enough for the striker and midfield getting forward. There is no creative player in the middle Dowling could be the answer and Jordan Lee is a must as he will use his pace which our wide players do not use it enough.
