I got odds of 7/1 for Truro City to win the tie after 90 minutes - £5k went on that , then a cheeky £1k on TCFC winning the FA Cup at 10,000/1.

Winning the cup would be the biggest thing to ever happen to Cornish football, and at 10,000/1 it would seem unlikely - but with some decent home draws and bit of lady luck, who knows?

Good luck to Truro in the next round a fantastic achievement, with River Allen , Cody Cook and Rocky Neal all coming from the swpl and making the grade at this level can only be applauded and an inspiration to young players wanting to step up. They have proved it is achievable with hard work and commitment as we all know the travelling is tough . Keep it up boys and look forward to seeing you in the draw for the next round!!

The traveling is tough❓❓ What are these guys snowflakes? You’ ll have me in tears in a minute. They may have talent but they are cosseted football players, albeit at the bottom end of the professional scale. Now, the armed forces, mineworkers, health care staff, that’s what I call hard work and commitment.

Certainly I wish them well in their quest for cup and league success, but I sure ain’t mistaking them for heroes.

How many tickets have you guys down at Truro sold for your big day? Good luck

Hereford are home to AFC Telford United in the 1st Round. Edgar Street is sold out, meaning 4,500 tickets gone.

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. :c:

What on earth is your problem?I merely congratulated the players nowhere have I demeaned the professions of the people you mention.A mid week game away to Havant or of similar distance arriving home at 2.30 in the morning then going to work the next day is difficult for anyone, when you consider having to fit in family life around this young wives & children etc it takes a lot of commitment. They are not paid thousands per game and although the extra money helps most of the players want to play a good standard of football before they get to your age and think life owes them something. I hoped the people on this were of at the very least average intelligence..........it appears not

Sorry if I offended you, you old pro, but I do sometimes get fed up with the sycophantic hero worship on this (and sometimes another) sub-forum. I happily concede that they are above average, and sometimes quite talented footballers but that doesn’t necessarily make them particularly nice individuals (I refer here to the whinging, swearing and occasionally, downright cheating that goes on in both national and some Cornish leagues). I suspect however, having reviewed some of your previous posts, that we may have to agree to differ  on the subject.

If true, what absolutely rubbish odds. 

You can get best price 14/1 for Truro to win in 90 minutes (BET365), with 9/1 the kindest price I can see to Truro. In terms of winning whenever (90 minutes; replay; ET; penalties) Truro are best price 6/1.

Furthermore, £1,000 at 10,000/1 equals ten million; no bookmaker I know of pays above £2 million.

Whatever - good luck to Truro City. I shall be there with my CORNISH SOCCER hat on to share another landmark in the club’s history!:c:

You never know in this crazy game that we all follow. There’s been a few shocks today in the Saturday games, let’s hope they’re just a warm up for more tomorrow :)

Quite true Dave, Oxford City, not as talented a team as Truro going to Colchester and winning should give City all the encouragement they need!! Get them back to Treyew Road for a replay, that will do! Truro Postie is either a bullshitter or a lunatic, maybe both!?! 🙄

6K up in smoke. Oh well,  good job there's more where that came from .

You don't think for minute that anyone believes that you did that -  do you ....(!)

Not with the Helical money gone, and the only way you will survive is if the council build a ground for you.....which was always the plan anyway.

The rest of it being smoke and mirrors.

Some really poor crowds in the fa cup this weekend. Saturday the best crowds were at Luton and Argyle with just over 5000 at both matches. Charlton had less than 3500 home fans at the Valley. Bet that was tragic rattling around in a 30,000 seater stadium. Why can't these clubs go to some effort to fill the grounds for these games and have tickets for a quid for everyone. Yes you might not make a fortune but sometimes you need to get fans coming to games to get them coming to another. It's to easy to let the usual die hard turn up and except the ground being empty.

Dont take to much notice of his stories.

Been listening to them for a while, and they are only stories,not much to believe in them.

900 supporting Truro away from home yet only 500 turn up to home games!!!

unfortunately for Truro there wasn’t any interest from home fans with only 4000 odd on the gate therefore missing out on a decent pay day

996 truro fans , although it looked double that, and sounded like triple .

“996 Truro fans” I would say there’s was 200 fans and over 700 there for the day out!!!

its amazing that that many can make the trip to London but not half of that make it to Treyew Road. That would be a massive frustration for me as owner, manager or player

why does it matter ? I'm not a truro fan when I was young I used to go watch Falmouth town with my dad and uncle,  I went yesterday because I'm Cornish and would of still gone wether it was Newquay, penzance or bodmin ,  ive been to Southampton to watch them this season and will go watch QPR next month because I will be in the area does it matter that I'm not a fan of them two either?  the fact is I was born in truro lived half my life in truro  why cant I go and support them in massive game in thiers and Cornish history.

Speaking as a part time fan.

I haven't missed a home game for six or seven seasons, but don't go to away games, so presumably only classed as part time.

It was fantastic to see as many there cheering the boys on, at no point did it occur to me they were not "proper" fans.

when Cornwall rugby took near 20,000 to twickenham, everybody thought how wonderful that was, is this really that different?

I would have classed you as one of the 200 fans!!

The Cornish rugby side is slightly different as they’re representing Cornwall!

i just say that as an owner/manager/player I would be wondering why 996 can make Charlton away but 500 can’t make a home game. 

However, I accept that it’s the same for a lot of clubs when a big game comes along

Would you be happier if only 200 turned up then ? I reckon the players manager etc would be disappointed then being a big game . 

should I feel ashamed about watching truro vs charlton because iv only watch a hand full of Truro games over the years ?

Jesus wept. Ashamed? Who on earth said about that?

im saying that “996 Truro fans” were there. I suppose it’s writers prerogative to use those words. 

But how come 996 decide to go to Charlton but can’t get half of that at home. So really, fans???

have they gone to be a fan of Truro or basically gone for a day out in London

Not exactly as attractive as you make it sound Darren! I understood the plan for the coaches were for them to arrive pretty much in time for the kick-off and then leave relatively soon afterwards.

It was exactly that.. Got there 5 mins from KO.   Final whistle went, quick cheer for the boys.   Out on the bus and home.

Five and a half hours each way....literaly in the ground for 2 hours MAX..

FANTASTIC day out though.   I hope the players took a moment to enjoy it as much as I did.

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.:c:
