While Lee was not short of financial resources, it took a while for him to settle back in to his role and the management team overall did not take the required shape until Chris Todd arrived as assistant.

Bit of a dig at the manager this seems

I find it hard to understand, a team that reaches the playoffs 12 months ago and now news coming out shocking. 

Any new player of quality will be hard to sign, 3 years with threat of evection and no ground.

A chairman that promises the world and delivers crumbs. (But of course he saved Truro I think that train has truly left the station !!!!)

I honestly think we will be playing at Bodmin (No smoke without Fire) also 2-3 leagues down

To Pzfan: many, including me, believe there is the talent in Cornwall to play at National South level but you will never overcome the problem caused by where Cornwall is geographically. Many suitably talented players either cannot (due to domestic or work commitments) or simply can't be Arsenalled  to devote all that time to travelling. Concord away on a Tuesday night? (because the league don't seem to take travelling times into account). As another poster pointed out, it was tried but didn't work back along by Steve Massey. I'm sorry to see Les go: although sometimes frustrating, he also has the ability to put in a decent shift.

Geographical location is always going to be an issue as you say Tom. I am based outside of the county so would not always know which players are based in Cornwall. Travelling from Bristol to Penzance is bad enough sometimes!

Totally agree with you Ledleystheking. Truro's average attendance was 400 and only a very small number of those post on this site. Moaning and whinging is what they live for. The vast majority agree with you.

I don’t think people are moaning at the team, but the running of the club, 3 years down the line and still talking of ground sharing as the latest smoke dream has disappeared.  The season has ended and mass exodus has started.  And where have you got average attendance of 400?? 

I hate how the club is being managed, over 40 players played this season loan player after loan player, and our young goalkeeper loaned out Shocking!!

The sacking of Steve Tully was abysmal never known a successful manger getting sacked at this level.

Let’s watch what happens before the start of pre-season, I would be surprised if nothing else is spouted by our chairman (Who seems more interested in the paper in bought into)

I hope he has an open evening where fans can either praise him or ask him how long before the Pirates ground is built (And did he not spout that Truro would not ground share as they needed their own) Where will the club be playing in next 3 years? He jokes about being evicted from Treyew Rd no smoke without fire!!

Finally we are not in the national league south  on our own merits, lucky we had help from above.

I will be the 1st one to admit I was wrong about our leader if he delivers on what comes out of his big mouth.

They play at the highest standard...yes - but what a standard they set. Laughable.

 Would make a very good farce if put on the stage. 

Got to the highest standard - how (?) Yep - we all know how.

By getting promoted from the South Western League, the Western League, southern league div 1 south and west, and southern league Premier div.  🏆🏆🏆🏆 Penryn should try it sometime Older. By the way you could do with some new nets at Kernick Road last time I was there, they're rubbish compared to that lovely first set you had from Germany years ago!!!   😀

Our words do not hide the truth 0-4, 2-3, 1-2, 0-2, 3-5, 0-2, 0-4 ,0-5, 0-2, 2-4, 1-5  we lost the last 11 away

-  2017/8 has to be better after 0-4, 2-3, 1-2, 0-2, 3-5, 0-2, 0-4 ,0-5, 0-2, 2-4, 1-5 - but will 2017/8 be better

One consolation, we gave Forest Green Rovers a scare and now they have progressed to the final at Wembley of Non Leagues Trophy showpiece, as such what went wrong, it is easy to blame the players but who is in place to make them tick, countdown time for those responsible for team affairs to stand up to be counted,

Hope you are going to get that repeat mode button replaced before the beginning of next season Older, unfortunately you cannot change the course of history boy, all I wish to add is that we are still Cornwall's premier club still playing at TREYEW ROAD and don't forge there was the small matter of winning at WEMLEY STADIUM. Enjoy your summer watching St Gluvias CC.

If there is a change of manager, Truro are in the fortunate position of there being so many experts  on this forum capable of doing the job. Mind you it would mean them having to leave the comfort of their armchairs!

Of the average "400". How many are fans and how many are spectators. How many will be there when the club drops a few divisions in a few years which will inevitably happen. 

 

Who should the the club listen to? The fans or the spectators?

Name some clubs whose attendances have not fallen when they've dropped a few leagues.

Fans of all sides want their club to spend, spend, spend. Clubs should live with in their means and put some aside for a rainy day. As I said before fans always want their clubs to spend loads of other peoples money.

Fans also want the truth, not broken promises. Let me ask you Goldeneye was you at the ground when PM was on stage promoting SilverBow, had a little model and plans drawings & if I remember right the company funding it, he was begging for questions now if ask him you get called rude (I Know because he phoned me and did so)

He stated that the club would not leave Treyew Road until the ground was built had some sort of clause that stated the club would be safe.-_-

The saga of nearly every month an Update of progress (LACK) Work will Start Jan, Feb March then not at all:SM_carton:

http://www.evostikleaguesouthern.co.uk/match-info/attendance-tables If you ignore  attendance of the big teams Truro would be lucky to get 300 then if dropped 2 leagues then 250-200.:angry2:

You are full of 

I do not watch football from a armchair,and have travelled hundreds of miles following Tottenham and Truro,this season and every other season.

So I do, know my football,and I also know when a football club aint being run right,and I have previously managed a Truro side a few years ago.

But I would'nt manage Truro now,with Masters in charge.I think I would be lucky to last a week.

If I were you,get some facts ,before you start slagging people,off.

Oh ye of little faith, if I enjoyed the comfort of my armchair I wouldn't travel the country as much as I do following Truro City unlike our Chairman who is conspicuous by his absence, If my experience was gained by only watching Truro Ciity in the last season or so my knowledge may be negligible but in the past couple of years I have had the pleasure watching football in Germany - Slovenia (2 visits) - Spain - Lithuania - San Marino - Republic of Ireland, -  Italy, -  France (4 visits) - Portugal add to that 25 of the last 30 England games, we then have English Premiership games and the European Champions League. It grieves me to say your respect for the supporters exercising their right to post on these forums borders on ignorance, as somersetspur says we do know a bit about football, unlike those who coming into the game late in life think they know it all.

For the record, I am already booked up for the Scotland and Malta away World Cup Qualifiers and another visit to France in between, tactics vary so despite my fading years there is still a lot to learn but knowledge was not the requirement to see action was needed tactically when things were not working out to get results and football is just that, it is a results game.

As long as your happy being a tadpole in the Penryn river I have not got a problem with that Older. As for running down the team that you support I have too much respect to even think about it. You keep knocking Truro City if thats all all you got to do in life boy but don't expect me to back down. Come on you Red & Blacks.  :c:

Don't care what colour they wear now Older but I still wear my Red and Black as do all the Tisa boys and girls as do all the other real supporters. I suppose next you are going to say Cardiff play in Red but call themselfs the Bluebirds. Just for you information Truro City now call themselves "the white tigers"

I note that nobody, with the exception of older, has agreed that football clubs should live within their means and not rely on being bankrolled by someone.

I would quite happily follow TCFC at a lower level to exsist on a sound financial platform.

But Im afraid that would fail to serve,the whole purpose of the exercise.

Truro City are more of an asset to the owners,playing in Conference South or higher,than 3-4 leagues ,lower.

Buisness men not football men,hence we are in the situation we are,with the owner's running up debt,as the previous accounts have shown.

If the club had lived within it's means 15 years ago, there would have been no need for Heaney or Masters.

Truro City still playing at their home,Treyew Road.

Trustee's not giving the ground up.

Real football people running the Club.

A reserve team. A youth system being run.A social Club open every night for the community to use.

Almost sound 's like a proper football club.
