  3. @Darran TQY V BOR It was a lacklustre first half, despite the +3000 getting behind the home team. Decent chances were missed, and the slick football that TQY showed last season, never got going. It wasn't until the 60th minute, when GJ made 2 substitutions,( bringing on Lemonneigh-Evans & Edwards for Andrews & Duku) that Torquay sparked into life. They really made a difference and the slick passing and pressing paid off. Borehamwood were very physical, and devoid of much skill, they resorted to brute force. 3 yellows and 1 red card were shown, so perhaps that is smething to think about when they playagainst a side that likes to pass the ball. Torquay did the usual, almost throwing it away at the end, but managed to hang on, and to be fair, if it wasn't for the woodwork, the game should have been won by then anyway. Im fancying a decent game tonight against Solihul, BTTS should be worth backing.
  4. @Darran Nice write up mate, I have to agree with your summary on Torquay. I have a ST there for the coming season, so will keep a close eye on them and report back. Most supporteres are hoping for a top 6 or 7 finish, but Johnson wants to take them back up. They have looked very fit pre season, and have played some god football too. I know that you can't read to much into this, but 2 of those matches were local derbies, so there was more of an edge to those games. I think we need to see how Jamie Reid copes this season. I think National South may be his level. Manny Duku looks a decent addition, as does the new goalie & the lad from Woking. GJ is hopeful of bringing in 2 or 3 more, and if they are of the level that he wants, and he can then get an extra 10-15% out of the squad, then Torquay could do alright you know. Your man in the SW In addition to that... ST sales have gone crazy, and there was a crowd of nearly 3400 for the home friendly V Plymouth. Torquay weren't even getting close to that before GJ turned up.
  5. Ok, for some reason I thought we had a new managers thread! Anyway, yes I am sure @Darran will be onto it now. Ive got to follow him closely next season!
  6. Up and down for me. Best bet was my 34/1 on Torquay to win the league, probably made a small profit overall
  7. Interesting reading this thread now, as SB was nowhere near that list! PS @StevieDay1983 Is there not a designated place for new managers threads? AND....now that I am back after the break, can we have a non league antepost thread addded I watched Torquay read the Argyle apart on Tuesday,and was going to add some comments. TaMuchly😎
  8. I think there wil be better value in this tournament, than the mens Euro qualifiers. I thought France were awseome last night, and made a tidy profit on corners. Doing the same with Germany today. Thinking that there will be added impetus from stronger European teams here.
  9. The assumption is always that you need to spend money to achieve things. Normally this can be the case, however - Spurs havent spent much recently, nothing this season, and yet finished 4th & reached a CL final - Man City spent less than EVERTON this season. They won the treble, Everton finished 6th - Leicester won the PL without spending big money SO, perhaps it's not always down to the money, perhaps the coaching has a lot to do with it?
  10. Brighton won't spend more than they can afford, so Potter will have to work with the players there. On paper, they are good enough to do much better, so hopefully he can get the best out of them. They should sign a couple over the summer, hopefully a new striker or 3! i am pleased with the appointment though, a change was needed. Obviously Dan Ashworth is running the show now. The big question now, is where will CH end up?
  11. Brighton are set to appoint Graham Potter as their new manager after he informed Swansea City that he wants to leave. Brighton sacked Chris Hughton on Monday and immediately targeted Potter. Swansea offered Potter, 43, a new contract which would have made him one of the best-paid managers in the Championship, but he felt he could not reject a Premier League job offer. Brighton will pay Swansea about £3m in compensation for Potter and his staff. Swansea assistant manager Billy Reid, coach Bjorn Hamberg and head of recruitment Kyle Macaulay will join Potter at the Amex Stadium. Potter was given permission to talk to Brighton after telling Swansea late on Friday that he wanted to leave. The continuing financial uncertainty at Swansea is thought to have been one of the key factors behind his decision. Swansea have been cutting costs since they were relegated from the Premier League a year ago. Following their relegation, they allowed 16 players to depart last summer and made only five signings. More players are expected to leave this summer. Wales winger Daniel James is set to be sold and more than £20m of signings will depart on free transfers. Potter joined Swansea from Swedish side Ostersunds FK in June 2018 and guided them to a 10th-place finish in the Championship despite drastic cost-cutting measures following Premier League relegation. Brighton finished 17th in the Premier League this season, two points clear of the relegation zone. They won only three of their past 23 games and none of their final nine. Hughton, who took over at Brighton in December 2014, led them to the Premier League for the first time in 2017, and they finished 15th in their first season back in the top flight.
