We were in just as bad a hole last season and the season before and pulled clear. That does not mean we will do it again but it does mean we can do it again.
And therein lies the problem. There is a belief that because we managed the virtually impossible 2 seasons in a row, there is no reason to believe we can't do it again. Unfortunately every time you lean over the edge of a cliff, eventually you will lean too far and over the edge you go.
All this season is proving to me is that we haven't learned a thing over the past 10 seasons, since we lost our league status the first time. No investment and unwanted cast-off players will not work. It's nothing to do with Kev or Owers, it's all about hierarchy and leadership. We are completely bereft of leadership and haven't had a decent hierarchy for years and years.
All we're doing is lowering the bar and still failing to reach it.

Florida is right, the problem is right at the top. Things were probably destined to go tits up the day mike batson decided he didn't want to own a football club anymore. It was only good fortune that the bristows won the lottery and decided to spunk a fair amount of their winnings on Torquay united. Since then what followed has been almost inevitable, firstly the Dave Philips regime trying to keep the club afloat with virtually no money, then falling into the hands of property developing sharks. If there was truly a saviour out there, someone who cares about football and has the nouce and some cash I think they would have come forward before now, but they haven't because basically I don't think they exist. The best anyone can hope for now is that the club ticks along while waiting for that saviour to turn up.
