Time to be Together if you “support “ Torquay United F.C.

Torquay United v Dagenham and Redbridge - Matchday thread - 17/02/18

One thing that does bother me is why Owers doesn’t feel the need to come over and clap the fans and just trudge off down into the tunnel?! That’s the one thing that bothers you? Does it really matter? If he did, all he’d get is abuse anyway. The bloke is clueless and out of his depth and hopefully ...

Super Kev To You

I hope Nicholson does get the Halifax job, if even only to shut this debate down once and for all. On paper his managerial record at Torquay was more than sackable and his popularity was more about who he was than for his success as a manager. But the context behind his time as manager will probably...

Attendances and the next generation of fans

My first season as a regular was as a 10 year old during the 79/80 season. Mike Green was the manager and he had assembled a very exciting team with the likes Steve Cooper/Les Lawrence up front, Donal Murphy, Tommy Sermanni, Peter Coffill, John Turner etc and for the first part of that season we wer...

Jim Parker Herald Express

There is a fascinating account of Clarke Osborne’s various business interests and history on BTPIR, unearthed by Haldon Rambler and I read it thinking how a supporter with access to the internet has found information accessible in the public domain and simply used it to ask questions. This informati...

Jim Parker Herald Express

isn't Richard Hughes something to do with the Sports Dept .. wasn't he Head of Sports or something like that at one time? He seems to feature regularly in the 'Plodcasts' and if I remember rightly he used to work for TUFC way back .. surely he should be showing some initiative and investigating GI....

GET Gary Owers, Martin Khul & Geoff Harrop OUT NOW

Whilst not wishing really to go down the legend route, I wonder at times, whether we made the wrong man manager when Hargreaves was appointed with Lee Hodges as assistant. Hodges has twice done a good job with Truro, in the same way Tully has and I'd probably settle for Hodges as manager when we wen...

Jim Parker can try and rattle some cages when his mates in the council ask him to. See this for example: http://www.devonlive.com/news/devon-news/shape-up-ship-out-sake-1084719 (apologies to Ding Dong, as I see he has already linked this) Yet, if he cannot see there is something really quite appalli...

Joining forces with truro ?

Yes, from their name, we’ll use the words ‘Football Club’ and from our name we’ll use the words, Torquay United.

Torquay United Association Football Club - Sole Director Clarke Osborne

For what it's worth, Chris Rich yesterday confirmed the Five Year plan is alive and well and in draft form. When or whether it'll see the light of day wasn't discussed. (Target Number One: To get out of the National League!!) So when the idea of a five year plan was announced in December 2016, they...

Good to see that more supporters are joining TUST. The more who do, the stronger the voice of supporters, and at some point, when Clarke Osborne sees through what is probably his plan, TUST is all there will be.

Clarke Osborne the saviour of the club? Seriously?

No wonder property developers can come in and slowly suffocate football clubs when you have supporters calling them saviours.

Can’t people see that Osborne is playing the long game? For heaven’s sake.
