Its a great draw.

AWAY to a side who have only won twice in the League.

Truro City will go there with no fear,and will have a good chance of progressing.

One thing for sure with the AWAY draw,there will be a cracking atmosphere,much better than Treyew Rd.

I see that a few Clubs,in the Cup draw,are thanking there supporters,by laying on free transport to get to their away ties.

Would'nt it be a great gesture,by Peter Masters,to lay on some free transport for supporters,to get to the game ,and maybe witness more history.

After all £7,500 was won for the last victory.

There was a rumour,that half that money was given to the squad.

Be nice to reward the supporters as well.

Surely you wouldn't use the free transport if it was laid on?

Not a rumour, he said it himself on BBC Radio Cornwall

Truro v Argyle wouldn't happen, the fixture would be reversed I.e. Argyle v Truro, and yes it would indeed pack Home Park out

Be a shame if this happened. Be nice to see Treyew packed out for possibly one last time!

The gods have smiled on Truro. Hopefully they'll get a good 1st round tie!

Counting chickens comes to mind! The wonder of the Cup; Truro could well have a resounding win in the league at home next week then crash horribly away the following one. Sincerely hope it doesn't happen but beware tempting the fickle gods of footballing fate.

Have to be very honest here. As a Falmouth Town fan I really hope that Truro don't win this one.  The one thing Town fans can still claim bragging rights to is being the only Cornish team to qualify for the 1st round proper.

Sorry for all the "Doing it for Cornwall" believers out there but there it is!

Don't worry, the record may get broken but we have done it with more money and played less games

No truth in the rumour at all Goldeneye, unfortunately for SS he is one of the designated drivers poor sod, no fun at all driving all that way and not being able to wet your whistle. I should know as I coordinated the away travel back in the Heaney years although I do have to own up to sinking the odd one or two. Unable to risk it now being the owner of Truro's premier Taxi Company, nameley Henrys Taxi's otherwise known as Ray2b.:smiley20:

Truro are only 3 wins and a couple of kind draws away from the FA cup 3rd round!!! Don't know bout Argyle at Treyew Road you might see Spurs making a revisit 40 years on from their last one! 😀

You never know, I've kept my ticket stub from the Sudbury game and will keep from remaining home games, I'd hate to lose out to people who never go

I think the FA have recently banned fixture reversals. The home club would need to find a suitable venue, say Exeter lol

If Truro do make it to the first round draw, and good luck to them from a Falmouth Supporter, at least it will be a few years before they match the record of 'three' times of playing in the first round proper - and I really believe that this is a record to be around for many more years yet!

The problem, as I see it, is quite straightforward, the opposition wanted to win as well, how jolt unsporting of them, daring to challenge the league leaders! 

Next week is now a problem, they've got their tails up and they're at home. I really hope Truro will pull something out of the bag but it's going to be hard graft. As they say; anything can happen in the Cup, unfortunately the same goes for the league!

It does not look like the Club are laying on any transport for supporters to travel and maybe witness TCFC make history,tomorrow.

Even the Official Supporters Club cannot organise a bus ,because of a lack of drivers,and are trying to sort some cars.

Dont worry TISA will be there.

It’s a shame the whole club doesn’t seem to be able to get together!

Its a known fact,some people at the Club,just dont want TISA anywhere near it.

At the end of last season,progress was being made between TISA and the Official Supporters Club.

TISA 's Secretary and the Supporters Club Chairman,had some really encouraging discussion's about the future.

But Im afraid at the Supporters Club AGM.The Chairman was removed from his duties and replaced by a new Chairman.

The new Chairman,has a different attitude,Im afraid.

So now we are at,where we have always been.
