Oh they do thats football, I was saying that the players mentioned by Reg "should" have been good experienced signings, and that often the more exeperienced they are the less well they do with us.

I don't remember many experienced signings coming in and doing THAT well for us, Steve White, Ian Culverhouse, Mark Walters and Paul Allan and possibly at a push Darren Ward and Alan Reeves (after a poor first season with us).

I liked Brian Borrows.... we're talking second tier, he was about 38 when signing and near 40 when finishing hardly missed a game in his 2 seasons we never went down.

Of course probably our best ever experienced player was the late, great John Smith... had played in the legendary Spurs double team as a youngster, and found his way down to Torquay, where he developed a love of Devonian scrumpy.

Ian Woan was decent, always liked him
He wasn't too bad for us, took a good free kick.

And yes Borrows was decent enough.

30 years now and I've moved on and still we got the torys back in the chair
The current generation are out on the streets
With a whole new set of reasons to be fighting police
No justice and Stephen we know where to start
Gangs are busy tearing inner cities apart

30 years still living in a ghost town
Still dragging us down
Telling us the way we should live

I would defend Galvin and marwood. Both were good for us. Galvin's performance at West ham when he and Parrish went for it was absolute quality.

Which, to be fair, is probably as it should be. I'm unconvinced so far if I'm honest and have been critical of some of his man management in particular but still think he could yet get us out of this division and if he does so he deserves all the plaudits that he will get for that. And if he does take us up, there should be no question of his job being safe IMO (mentioning that solely because some have said they'd get rid even if he does take us up)

I don't run the club, so I doubt Flitcroft is losing too much sleep about my obsessive dislike of him.

I'm still holding onto the notion that we're expecting too much, and the style is down to us being in a crappy league. I'm going to cling onto those straws for as long as I can.

Flitters did a tremendous job completely rebuilding the team, when I could see another relegation staring us in the face, even in this crappy league. Some of his decisions are questionable,but I think we expect too much too soon, and it's going much better than I expected.

This. 

Last season was so dreadful and the team was such a shambles that I had a real fear at start of season that we could  plummet out of league. The football is dreadful and I also find some of his decisions baffling but at least he's steadied the ship.

FWIW I would still have Flitcroft over Cooper and Williams, despite his obvious (at times) failings.

I'd take Sturrock over Flitcroft, I'm going to be miserable for a while I think :-)

On the positive side, I still think we'll be in the play offs

Even though he's been out of work for a while due to illness?

No doubt. Most people canít get their head round the fact we are in the mix yet playing shit.
