I don't think we'll come anywhere close to selling this one out now. Been 5 days since it was announced fans would be allowed in. Laughable from moneybags Wxm and shite communication from GTFC too. Lots will decide to give this one a miss.
I said we'd have about 500 at the time the stadium restrictions were lifted but I reckon we might be looking at closer to half that now.

Hearing Wrexham have put in a £150k bid for a League One club’s ticket printer.
Talks have currently stalled though as the printer is holding out for 15k per week but so far Wrexham have only offered it 12k.

not hugely tinpot (although lower league 'ultras' are inherently tinpot) but this picture made me laugh. It was described on twitter as 'like a renaissance painting'.

Shaun Harvey reckons we should be close to getting it in about 3 weeks.
Pretty sure the printer deadline will have been passed by then

Maybe they'll have to sign washed up journeyman Dot Matrix

They’ve withdrawn their original offer as they’ve realised Cyan has a vowel in it.

Checkout the guy top right, an early example of someone using WAP on their phone to get the scores.

We do that when players score out on loan at other places, seems your lot are the ones obsessed.

Chesterfield's Twitter still totally obsessed with Chelsea and THAT MATCH. The cracks are showing in their recent results too.
It's not our fault half of West Africa now support us. We're crowd funding to set up a sweat shop to keep up with demands on shirts.

What a job the admin is doing to be fair, over 10k engagements for one tweet for a shitty tinpot 5th tier club like ours is unreal. Geezer needs a payrise

He’s a young lad that does it as a volunteer and drinks in a same pub as some of my mates. He said we’ve gained about 15k followers since the Chelsea game and new registrations/first time purchases from the club shop have increased. If the club can see the two are linked I can understand why this cringfest is continuing, as much as I don’t particularly like it

Is anyone on here from Torquay going to explain WTF is going off here?

We've had the exact opposite happen. Folkestone fans have been in our social media replies, congratulating us for our win against Yeovil at the weekend with them adding that they are now looking out for our results.

Heard a shipment of 10,000 replica shirts have been sent down to the south east coast after that match.

If memory serves me right, that photo was taken at Trumpton vs Bath City some years back (not in our stint the NLS, so must've been a cup game).

Being one of our 'local' games, the neanderthals were out in force (yep, all 11 of 'em). Missiles were thrown from both sides and those involved (from the Torquay contingent) were named and shamed (some I believe were banned from Plainmoor).

Similar scenes happened when we played Bath in our NLS season when a 'crew' from Bristol City were mixed in with the Torquay fans and had a great delight in kicking off with the Bath City fans. The funny thing is, one of them was throwing punches at someone over one of the fences when there was an open gate right next to both of them.... obviously felt braver with a fence between.

Edited to add.... the scrote in the top right hand corner still wears that same un-ironed, un-washed shirt whenever I've seen at any Torquay games.
