Truro City

Guest john

Most of Truro players are big fish in a small pond! Its only money that makes players play in a league lower than their normal standard! I just wanna stop Truro people saying we should support our county by backing up Truro. I support my county by staying with Falmouth and not letting the true history of cornish football be over shadowed or replaced by a club that changes their kit to the cornish colours!!

Truro had over 13,000 turn up at Wembley last year and it was a great day out, although we all support or are invloved in other teams throughout the county we still wanted and cheered when they won.

We watch the senior cup final and junior cup finals everyyear and even if our team doesnt make it we go along and pick a team we want to win.

If any of you don't like what Truro is doing then you don't need to comment on it because it doesnt effect you. The fact of the matter is we would all like to have a Kevin Heaney come into our club and make it the best it can be.

The people who hate Truro are jealous of the funds available not because of the players because they play some good football and at the end of the day thats what we all want to see.

I went to wembley (free tickets and travel) I didn't go to watch Truro i went to see the new stadium, and nope i didn't cheer when they won was too busy telling some young lad behind me that West ham was staying up (he cheered louder then anyone else that day i think).

And i'm in no way jealous of Truro's 'funds'. I'd rather see men playing football for the love of it and not 'charging' the club to play for them. I know it might not be a high standard of football but at least the players are having fun and doing something that they love for thier club, no matter how small that club is.

If you don't want people who don't support Truro commenting on them then don't start a thread saying 'Cheer on Truro'.

I think this anti-Truro thing that exists on these forums is all stemmed from jealousy. Everyone who don't support man united hated them because of their success. Chelsea are widely hated, because of success. I am a big tottenham fan. Lived in cornwall all my life, but go to white hart lane every month. I like to see truro do well but you aint gonna catch me down there watching games. Just because someone is from cornwall it don't mean they should support truro. At the end of the day when truro were not the 'big' club they are now perceived to be, how many of you so called 'loyal, support your local club' fans were down treyew road in the rainstorms watching the midweek games against more local sides?? :thumbsup: As i said, I like to see truro do well because its about bloody time we have a cornish side that can achieve things nationally. But to have it rammed down our throat every week in my 'camborne, redruth and hayle' west briton is crazy!!!!!! :SM_carton:

COYS

FOYG

Just a quick point........had last years final not been played at the new wembley stadium but at Bristol City's Ashton gate for example.....would there have been 13000 truro 'supporters there?????? NO CHANCE!!! the majority of those went just for the visit to Wembley!!! :SM_carton:

I know alot of people who went to the vase final MAINLY to see the new stadium which our tax over paid for. Truro going was just an excuse as buses were put on..

And for the record i dislike Truro after playing against them and seeing/hearing first hand the jumped up, arrogant, egotistical comments coming from players on the pitch and in the dug out who have got very disillusioned with the standard of football they play and more importantly where they came from.

I agree Hutchspur i am not a truro fan neither i just annoyed when people call them money bags. We would all like to see our own clubs have a bottomless pit with regards to money, because the better class of player who would mean a better class of football. Football is the winner here, being able to see players of the standard that Truro have.

Someone left a tread about it being rammed down your throat in all the local papers. Dont' buy the paper!!

You are probable a happy supportor at the moment Hutchspur with Spurs playing so well and getting to Wembly. Tottenham have always been associated with good football so its nice to see they are getting there. Got 4 or 5 players spurs fans in my team. Good luck for the final.

Anita most senior teams in cornwall pay players to pay so unfortunately they dont all play for the love of it.

Perranporth don't pay players Anita?????????

I didn't say senior clubs, i didn't mention any clubs, just said i think is nice when men play for the love of the game. Today i did two matches and am over £10 out of pocket (traveling ect) because i do things for the love of the game. As for Perranporth i don't know. But i know i'm still not jealous of Truro's 'funds'. :D

Getting back to what this thread was all about.I dont think shanethebuck was asking everyone to be Truro supporters,he was just saying we could wish them the best of luck in such a high profile match.

As some on this forum will know I am a Truro supporter,but that does not stop me wishing other local teams the very best in competitions.If the likes of Falmouth,St Blazey,or Bodmin, or any other team in fact from the county were playing in a national competition I would be rooting for them and be delighted if they progressed.

When I buy my Sunday sports paper I just dont go to the Truro report,I also check on the likes of Plymouth,Exeter,Torquay,in fact all the westcountry teams to see how they faired.Im not a Plymouth fan but I was really glad to see they got a good result yesterday.So what I am saying is what is the harm in wishing any local side the best of luck.

With all the anti Truro comments on this forum I am glad to see it is only the minority and not county wide,as they still managed to get nearly 1,600 football followers at Treyew Rd yesterday.

KIT.

That's my sentiment Kit, although a lifelong Falmouth Town supporter, I always check for 'west country' results, especially when you live up in the North like I do.

Better luck for Truro next year in the Vase (providing they don't draw Falmouth!) :yahoo:

might have a hard time next season drawing falmouth in the vase.

if they get promoted they will be in the FA Trophy not the vase.

I expect the Senior Cup to be Falmouth v Truro final

Yeah thats pretty gross!!! Its a small section from 'The Ring' is it not? :c:

You know what, I'm not actually too sure :unsure: . I'm willing to take your word on it though because I've never actually seen the film (my mrs has seen the original chinese version and said it was pure disgusting grossness). I happened to see it (the avatar pic) on one of the Spurs forum's I go on and just had to get it because I thought it was GREAT. :c:

i dont know were you get all this about comments from the bench,i was there and i didnt hear any of these so called coments,if you conctrated on your own game instead of trying to listen to whats going on ,you might have had a better game,and its funny that you didnt hear the comments of truros players being slaged off.blinkered or what :blink:

Why SHOULD we follow/cheer on Truro because they are Cornish and why SHOULD we cheer on any other English team in the Champions league tec if they are not the team(s) we follow?.

I do not concur with this "Anti Truro" talk. I don't think it's possible to emphasise enough that those of us being accused of being "Anti Truro" are NOT necessarily "Anti Truro", we just aren't interested or don't care about them BUT those who are "Pro Truro" seem to think that we are somehow obliged to have some sort of affinity/affection towards them.

We all have our own minds and as INDIVIDUALS we can choose to make up our mind in any way we wish. Good luck to ALL Truro followers(sheep) and anybody associated with the club BUT I am one of those many INDIVIDUALS that simply couldn't give a damn about them. They are of NO concern to me whatsoever and I will not be rail roaded into falsely suppporting something I do not wish to support and I would never dream of paying to watch them unless they were playing Spurs or my local team, neither of which is going to happen so accept it, move on and enjoy any success that Truro do or don't enjoy.

am i missing the point was i wrong to support liverpool in the champions cup final when i dont support them or everton in europe arsenal against real madrid if your the football supporters that you claim why does ur support stop at one club ? the next time one of your players unleashes a 20 yd pile driver a stunning shot but the opp keeper pulles off a fantasic save how about just once saying great shot followed up by great save point made , im not asking you to support truro or tregony or timbuckto but in the wider scope football is played all over the world by all standards of players and i respect ur view to support your local team but and this is a big but, the next time ronaldo scors a great free kick or the guy from st day scores a great goal against your team how about saying well done !!!!!! and if a CORNISH team yes truro are enjoying some success how about saying well done ? theres a lot of good things happening in cornish football , dave and glyn at truro trevor with the seconds ray with the county team john bates doing well at roche, were flying at godolphin , rickis got torpoint flying along with landreth and saltash , ian with torpoint firsts , wadebridge and mr dudly and of course dave and laffs have done well at blazey and i wont forget falmouths turn around under neil phillips and mr massy, so next time i have not got a game on a sat ill be heading off to watch some of the brilliant football around in cornwall not stuck at home shouting baaa humbug !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ill be off watching and learning from some of the fantasic managers and coaches and players in the county , and im sorry if you think you cant or dont need to learn any thing from any one else , just watch the warm up at truro thats woth 5 quids of any ones money just to start !!!!!simply because their the most proffessional team in the county , IM PROUD TO BE CORNISH but understand there is a whole football world over the border , im not ever saying dont suppoer your local team but respect others ok we are all football supporters at the end of the day

If you care to look on various other topics within this forum you will see that I openly admit that Arsenal play what I consider to be the best/most pleasing on the eye football in Europe, if not the world. I openly say that Man Utd are probably too strong for everybody this season and I absolutely marvel at the things that Ronaldo does week in week out for Man Utd.

I accept that football is a global phenomenon, the popularity of which even surpasses religion BUT if you think that I'm going to cheer on or support anybody other than those teams that I've grown up supporting or representing you are seriously wide of the mark my friend. A TRUE SUPPORTER will follow or support his/her team through thick and thin and will probably love football more than life its-self BUT to suggest that I am small minded because I simply refuse to follow any OTHER team is ridiculous.

As for saying "well done" to Truro for doing well etc, not going to happen. In my previous post I CLEARLY wish them and anybody associated with them the very best of luck in what they are trying to do BUT thats where it stops my friend.

its 'apologise' and its St Agnes!!

Martyn and Mandy do have the freedom of the village, they can walk their goats through the village at any time of the day, providing its carnival day or Vicci Fayre day.

So with what you're saying about Martyn and Mandy are we going along the same lines that Mr Heaney should be given the freedom of the City of Truro? after all, without him none of this would have been possible

Well said Metts - from a far-away neutral.

I am pretty sure when the Cornish Pirates got to Twickenham it was good for Cornish rugby. I think you are naive, metts, to suggest that narrow minded (by nature) football fans would be able to apathise with the suggestion Truro have bettered the name and reputation of Cornish football. Which, of course, they have.

It is perhaps a sad indictment of the mindset of your average football fan. I, like you, greatly enjoy watching players, staff, coaches (etc) of high quality, whether they belong to my team or not. Moreover, however these people got there (be it money or not) you have to admire football in its truest sense.

For that metts, I applaud you :clapper:

:c::c::c:

Good luck to all Cornish sides... (even though I don't support you! Lynch me!!!)

why did truro change their kit from red/black to the cornish team colours? And have the cornish flag put on their badge? It is a publicity stunt that they want to be the only club in Cornwall.

john i was at truro when the kit designes were forwarded it was simply because if there playing out of cornwall playing in white gold and black would be promoting cornwall but also the cornwall county shape was simply kevins cornish homes advert and hes entitled to do that as a sponsor hope thats clears it up metts

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO :angry2: ... When CORNWALL got/go to Twickenham it was/is good for Cornish rugby. When the Pirates got to Twickenham it was good for THE PIRATES and nobody else.

Last thursday there was a piece of news of SkySports News about Mounts Bay Rugby Club and their possible promotion to National division one (I think it's that division anyway?). There was no mention of how it would benefit Cornish rugby, infact all they mainly spoke about was MOUNTS BAY RUGBY CLUB and St Michaels Mount and there was a little mention to the amount of money it would bring into the CLUB.

When Arsenal won the Premiership was it good for London??. NO

When Man Utd won the Champions League was it good for Manchester?? NO

Any victory for any person,team or club is good for those that are victorious and ONLY those that are victorious. NOBODY else benefits at all and if you cant see that, you're as short sighted as Mr Magoo without his glasses on.

Metts, i am the one that got free tickets (and travel and beer) to wembley, and no i did not cheer truro when they won, like i said i was to busy telling a young lad (no idea who he was) behind me that west ham was staying up and too see his face light up to me was worth more then cheering for a team i don't support. I went there to see the stadium and to watch a game which i did and i enjoyed. I got drunk and met a lot of new people some of whom use this site. Does that mean i'm narrow minded because i didn't care who won on the day??

When i was talking about the badge, i meant the official club badge. Not the Sponsors badge with Kevins Cornish Homes. Ok so it changed to Cornwalls identity but what about Truro City Identity- Red and Black!

The whole identity of Truro City has changed for me.

The question is John, "has the whole identity of Truro only changed to you OR do other followers have the same narrowminded opinion"?. :SM_carton_y:

However, after many years in the doldrums Cornish club rugby has recently gone from strength to strength. These are exciting times for Cornish rugby supporters. The emergence of professional sides like the Cornish Pirates has raised the bar and shown other clubs what can be achieved. Reflecting these changes, TASC aims to support not only the senior county side, and the Under-20 and Colts sides, but also Cornish club sides at all levels. (Indeed, one of the Army's most useful functions is to supply exiles with a list of when Cornish clubs are playing across the border in England.)

From the Trelawney Army website. Cornish' Rugby Supporters Club.

I don't suppose there is any danger of this attitude presiding in Cornish football! Again, football supporting mentallity - :blink:
