I suggest you have a read of their fans forum, that's pretty informative.
It was sarcasm based on 3 people posting the same link I guess!!

I see that what was possibility a silver lining for Torquay fans that Gary Johnson has gone too. To think a couple of years ago they had a healthy lead at the top of the NL, and then played in a PO final which they really should have won. Now it looks likely they will be leaving the NL system through the trapdoor.

Thanks. I'm good at recognising verbal sarcasm but written sarcasm goes right over my head unless it's accompanied by exclamation marks / emojis.!

I work with a Torquay fan who frequently peppers me with Torquay chat on our internal messaging system - so no need for their forum for me!

I have to say, when talking to her, I can't help but feel fortunate to be a Barnet fan - I feel bad talking about our relative success and stability!

Notts County continue their dodgy recent form with 3-4 reverse at home to bottom club Sutton.

Sutton and FGR still within a shout of escape from the trapdoor.

While Wrexham could get promoted. Varying fortunes of two teams who went neck and neck last year.

Wealdstone slipping towards into the relegation dog fight although games in hand. With FA trophy commitments and negative pitch inspections could have a real fixture pile up. Maybe they'll looking for a paddle while travelling up the creek come April.

Sutton only won 5 games all season but done double over Notts scoring 9 in 2 games.

Could Mr Maynard help to get two teams relegated in the same season?

A quarter of Sutton's goals scored this season have been against Notts County.

Let's hope they stay up so we have a bit less travelling to do next season.

I have some good friends who are Torquay and want them to survive. It was a nice place to visit when i used to travel away!
This is despite them relegating us in the dim and distant past.
