  1. You sometimes have to play in competitions where you think do we really want to progress and for me this is one of them. After this game Truro will have covered over 1,700 miles in 8 days, well thats the mileage from Truro. Surely the players must be knackered after all this travelling besides having to do a day job. We have been lucky so far on the injury front but I for one don't want to see us go down the route from last season and bringing in loan players, it does not work. Lets just concentrate on finishing in a healthy position in the league. Just my opinion others may disagree.
  2. Hope the chairman has deep pockets. Also the supporters

    The difference being whether Bodmin win or whether Bodmin loose. It all depends on the whether man.
  4. Anyone expecting City to be suffering from a FA Cup hangover would have been pleasantly suprised at a wet and windy Malpas Park sorry I meant Treyey Road yesterday afternoon. A 3 goal salvo scored in an early six minute spell (Tyler Harvey Cody Cooke 2, 1 pen) effecetively killed of a team who were currently leading the National League South, they did reply with a goal before half time but a resulute defensive display in the second half ensured the Darts journey back to the M25 would be a fruitless one. Back up to third place in the league with a game in hand this result will certainly leave the doom and gloom mongers having second thoughts. A nice little trip away to Hungerford next weekend, lets just hope we don't get murdered up there. Onwards and upwards
  5. FA Cup

    The TISA Boys were a bit better organised than that. We left Truro at 06.15 up the 303 with a stop off at Popham Airfield for a full English (highly recommended) then on to the Rose of Denmark by 12.30 an old fashion boozer 5 minutes walk from the ground where we met up with the Exiles and mingled with the very friendly Charlton supporters. The landlord was very grateful of our custom and let us leave our minibus in his carpark free of charge. After a few pints of London Pride and watching the Spurs Palace game, (didn't see SS anywhere) we decended onto the ground 15 minutes before the ko. I was suprised to see so many supporters several of them wearing London Cornish shirts. The atmosphere was fantastastic and although Truro did not deserve to win but on another day could easily have come away with a replay. After celebrating with the players behind the goal after the game even though we lost then it was back to the minibus down the 303 again to the Groom and Jockey at Hevitree Exeter for some food Curry/Chinese and a couple more pint, arriving back in Truro approx 12.30. A memorable day which will long last in the memory.
  6. FA Cup

    Hereford United are a former league club with a famous FA Cup history ctb thats the difference, I'm sure Truro City would have sold out if the game was at Treyew Road. To answer the question the club have sold over 700 tickets with another 300+ expected to turn up on the day.
  7. This is getting boring now chaps, surely this thread is about yesterdays games and not personal attacks, just my opinion of course.
  8. I can see the Sunday Independent front page now, Away fans bring shame on Bognor Regis Football Club. Truro City fans get 12 month and 2 year bans at Dunstable. What happened to the Bognor fans, they were applauded by there directors as they returned to the bar. I wonder what will be in the refs report and what action will be taken. Double standards I'm afraid.
  9. The hometown of his father and grandfather (Trelander Boys) Mmmm interesting point, another Cornish lad in the team that would be a bonus. Hope his temperment is better than the other young lad we signed from Helston.
  10. FA Cup

    You can calm down down now now Geachy it has been announced that the tickets prices for the game are £10 for adults and £5 for concessions pasties free of charge and with the coach fare being £25 or only £20 on the TISA Party Bus this has to be a better day out than Flambards, also the fireworks will be on the pitch, as they say "No pyro no party" All you have to decide now is whether to bring an Anne's a Mary's or an Aunty Avis's just as long as you bring one along one for me. See you there boy with your St Pirans Flag
  11. Apologies for the wait Bruegel the Elder, definately not a case of only sing when we're winning, it was so long ago since we lost I think everyone was in a state of shock and forgot to report and please do not compare us with our former rivals Falmouth Town who we did not hear from for three seasons or was it Vivaldi and four seasons of even Frankie Valli and Lets hang on to what we got. Anyway just for you here we go. On a blustery Saturday afternoon "Late in October (Oh what a Night) Truro City came away pointless. In an even 1st half both teams had goals disallowed for offside. The first goal came on the half hour mark when Eisa finished from close range, he doubled the score moments later, the half finished with Wealdstone deservedly leading 2-0. The second half was a different story with the wind behind them and the TISA choir in full voice ( Wembley Wembley and We're going to win the Cup etc) Jon North in the home goal performed heroics to keep City at bay although the home team did have a couple of half chances themselves to be fair. The breakthrough came late in the game when Tyler Harvey converted a cross from Ben Gerring. The last 10 minutes was all Truro with efforts from Lamont Nial Thompson and Gerring all going close but to no avail. Final score Stones 2 City 1. The team and supporters all returned home dissapointed but travelled back to our plaice with bigger fish on there minds I'm sure.
  12. FA Cup

    I wouldn't try that one if I was you Geachy you may get attached to a piece of rope by the TISA boys and tossed over the crossbar. Anything the Eggchasers can do at Twickenham we can do at The Valley. Just as a matter of interest can you let us know your weight so as we know how many members to designate for the tossing if you will pardon the expression.
  13. Was this draw made behind closed doors? Poor old Bodmin Town drawn away again. Good luck to the only Cornish team left in the competition. Could they equal Truro City's record by being only the second Cornish team to win at Wembley.
  14. Try Radio Cornwall sports reports or the Independent. Game played in gale force winds and the Wealdstone goalie was voted man of the match. As they say you cant win them all. If all else fails you can always go on the official Truro City official website for a match report. Hope this helps Bruegel the Elder.
  15. FA Cup

    Hang on a minute I just remembered we haven't got a sub goalkeeper. Geachy 1 if your free that weekend we could sign you up and I think there is one spare seat left on the TISA Disco Bus.
