Torquay United
« on: January 21, 2018, 12:29:09 AM »
The only thing that made me smile at Plainmoor this afternoon was our new striker is called Romain. Appropriately chopsy as well. Just to update Allan Heron on his old mate Conrad Balatoni to use a Lawrensonism - 'he looks like he is a towing a caravan most of the time'. We lost 0 4!

Were they playing him as a striker?   They seemed from the lineup I saw last week.

No Central Defender. We are going down. The revolving door policy means we have 3 or 4 new players every week. Playing like a team of strangers. Got stuffed 0 4 by Bromley yesterday and we saved a penalty. Big away days to the likes of Weston Super Mare to look forward to next season 😭. 3 page spread on Balatoni in programme yesterday. Will post on Fartbook for you.

Reading posts like this make me thank my lucky stars I was born in Manchester...my football loyalty dictated by genetics. Painful for 40 years, especially being considerably outnumbered by those in the alternate camp, but the dazzling brilliance of the current 'light at the end of the tunnel' makes all the suffering worthwhile. It also boosts my respect and admiration for the undying loyalty of supporters of clubs like Torquay and Partick.

That's what we used to call it back when I first went to Maine Road. Games with non-spherical balls were of no interest...and hence there was no danger of confusion!
