    Steven Gerrard - New Rangers Manager

    Don’t see why Scottish football was destroyed by Celtic! they've run a football club with a massive fan base within its means. Rangers messed up! its tough for all the other sides up there because of the spending power of Celtic in comparison to others Rappo, you say it’s a good standard, but in conparison to what? Cody Cooke has taken a great opportunity to fulfill a dream whilst putting himself in a bigger shop window. Best of luck to him
  2. Have they got the date right with 1889? Should it not be 2005

    CONIFA

    That would mean thinking outside the box! Do you believe that many in the CCFA have any interest in growing the game like that down here? It’s just a job to them. Theres very limited knowledge within the organisation in my opinion. They’re like politicians that come out every now and then when something has gone right!!!
  4. Mandy arranged for him and Shilton to come to an end of season do a few years ago. It was a fantastic night and Pat was an absolute star staying up until 3am at the bar drinking and chatting. shilton went bang on when his time ran out!! Jennings was brilliant.

    CHANGE OF MIND!

    You’re an idiot. I haven’t said about turning them around. I said about involving the local community. And the things I said are all things that could be done that would encourage more engagement By the way. Would you invest in Truro City im also still awaiting for you to find where I said I detest Truro City

    The same as a club like Holmans or st Agnes do. Get the teams in, this gets numbers in through the gate. Maybe open the bar as a form of income. Genius ideas! you could also apply for grants, but I doubt they’d know anything about that ( to be fair though, I’m unsure at what level grants stop getting handed out ). The monie for entering these leagues is insignificant to the amount that is currently spent out, but the club would then be including others

    Show me a post where I have said I detest them! I don’t detest any local club. I don’t agree with the morals in which the club have taken over the last 13 years or so. If the club was run correctly and involved the community then the reserves, youth, ladies would have been an investment in the club to get people involved and bring more in. The club have completely alienated people who could have been involved and then they come out with things about doing it for Cornwall.

    There would be costing but that would be investment to involve the community wouldn’t it? im sorry that I have flouted your rules on reasons to post on this forum

    Did nothing for me! That’s my opinion! Truro City had a massive opportunity to get loads involved in the club and do loads for the community. But they chose not to! That’s my main gripe with it. No reserves, no ladies, no youth team! How is that meant to encourage people to get involved with the club. Most of those there now and clingers on who weren’t there prior to Heaney. I couldn’t give two shites about Truro City. Best of luck to them but I’ll never support them.

    Truro represent Truro, Bodmin represent Bodmin, Penzance represents Penzance. None represent Cornwall in my opinion. If whatever a club chooses to do they should do it for themselves and the community they’re in. Not for Cornwall. It’s highly unlikely someone from bude or boscastle is going to benefit in any way of Truro’s successs. Or mouseholes potential future success.

    Ah yeah. Forgot about the £2m. So that’s the only asset they’re buying.
  12. St Darren

    But they’ll have something to sell at the end. I don’t get what you’re buying when you’re buying Truro City. No ground, no club house, no assets, do they own the players? Its not a dig at them. It’s a genuine question over what you’re buying.
  13. St Darren

    CHANGE OF MIND!

    They’ll own a name and that’s it. Where’s the income going to come from?
  14. St Darren

    CHANGE OF MIND!

    I raised the question before. But what is a suited buyer buying when they purchase Truro City FC. There are no assets
  15. Always had great fun with Jarvo when he was with the thirds. Used to always be good going down to Penryn and he always had time to ask how things were going. Good bloke
  16. So did carharrack draw or win or did they play twice?

    Illogan Reserves doomed!

    Perfect answer Kev. I’ve often said that ambition down here is a waste of time and money. Play at the level you’re at and cope at a sustainable level. If you want to progress fine, but make it sustainable, as a club without relying on an individual

    Penryn athletic next season

    But the manager has ambitions to manage in a higher league I believe (maybe wrong). I heard the club failed the grading and it would cost to much to do. And, as you say, it’s not worth it as a local football club. Just sustain at the current level. There are no rewards for playing higher

    Penryn athletic next season

    Haha. Do you live in the real world? What’s the likelyhood of them going over to Carharrack? They’ll either play with their mates in lower league or go where their manager goes. Unfortunately in the combo league. Players will follow a manager! will wait to see the outcome on who’s going to be new manager but I’d be surprised if it was announced befoore end of season
  20. I couldn’t give a monkies what the law says and I appreciate that you’re going to tie the high line to keep the FA happy. But my opinion is that if you’re in the penalty area you’re offside. If a free kick comes in as a defender you’ve got no idea who the ball is going to do you’re playing offside and just because the player stood offside may not touch it, he’s interfering by making defenders act differently. The law is crap when it could be so simple
  21. And it’s stupid. There’s going to be a needless injury soon when the Lino could just flag. It’s obvious that a player is going to go for the ball. Why wait? Just flag the offside rule is massively over complicated. In my mind, if you’re in the penalty area and stood offside, you’re interfering with play
  22. Just like to say that I wrote a post years ago about introducing roll on roll off subs to the lower leagues to increase participation. It had a fair few negative responses at the time!!! they need to change the offside law. Currently the Lino has said to wait for the player to get involved this is going to cause an unnessary injury sooner rather than later. Just flag when they’re stood offside when the ball has been played
  23. Nice to see the FA supporting Grass Roots football. One would assume that clubs can tap into funding if needed? The FA from top to bottom are a complete joke and do nothing to help lower clubs and facilities.

    S4C looks impressive!

    Do the Pirates and Truro City have to pay rent on the ground? Or is their investment their final contribution
  25. Kimmo wouldn’t have anything to do without St Agnes on a Saturday afternoon. And as a mutual friend once said “wouldn’t have anything to wear either” no one and I mean no one (without the benefit of money) could have done what he has done and remained competitive without any fear of relegation over the years. The amount of phone calls, text messages, Facebook messages (from Mandy) that he has had to make to get players to sign or even turn up has been mental. I’ve even had to do some of it for him as well over the years. Without Martin and Mandy the club wouldn’t be where it is now. There are a lot of clubs out there that are reliant on the manager.
