if jake robinson pulls on the shirt tomorrow,will it be his debut? obviously because he was not registered the other night it wont count? or will it?
Unless Tuesday's match is declared "null and void" (unlikely I'd imagine), Jake Robinson made his debut against Hereford and scored in a game that we lost. The game will appear in the records. Our league record will still read PL46 Wx Dy Lz (goals for and against as normal) but an asterisk will appear next to the points total should we have points deducted.
An abandoned game would be different from a statistician’s perspective. Cue story of Denis Law once scoring six goals in an abandoned FA Cup match....

Stockport fan in peace. Hopefully it will be a good game and we will pinch enough points to keep us in this league. I love Torquay away, it's a tradition we have participated in for years . You lads are always welcoming in the White hart and outrigger. Look forward to a few more years of it!!! CMon the County!!!!!! Better get to bed its an early start tomorrow!
Hi and a warm welcome cardboardstan to the TFF . I’m sure by this time you are well on your way to a damp and very windy Torbay. We were battered with very high winds during the night and the wind is still gusting around strongly this morning.
Last Saturday was a very miserable day in the Bay with the sun refusing to shine and yet Sunday was a beautiful day bathed in sunshine. Last Saturday also turned out to be a miserable day for Torquay United fans as well and they sure don’t need or want to end up feeling like that again come 5pm today.
Enjoy your time here in Torbay and sorry it’s not a nice day for your trip down here, I hope you have a safe trip down here and back home again, but I'm hoping the result of the match will not be one that makes the trip down here a worthwhile one for you.
Yes please but here's an interesting statistic Stockport have won as many away games as us this season and its their home form that has done for them. And we think our home form is poor. It must cetainly must improve if we are to survive and progress in this division ad that means a few more clean sheets as we havent had one in the league since Accrington back in Sepetember. Surely today we will break that pattern. Off to Plainmoor and my "miserable" spot on the popside to find out then.

Team sheet: 16 Danny Potter 7 Lee Mansell (capt) 5 Chris Robertson 23 Guy Branston 3 Kevin Nicholson 26 Chris Zebroski 6 Craig Stanley 18 Joe Oastler 10 Eunan O'Kane 8 Billy Kee 9 Jake Robinson Subs: 1 Scott Bevan, 2 Lathaniel Rowe-Turner, 4 Mark Ellis, 14 Lloyd Macklin, 17 Saul Halpin, 19 Danny Stevens, 22 Damon Lathrope.
Interesting. Potter in for Bevan and Ellis dropped to the bench. It's a sort of "shake-up" and let's face it, it is more or less as much as Bucks can do with the lack of options that he has.
I think that a chance at the back is required. We've been really caught-out over the last few weeks far too often - we conceded 5 goals against Hereford in those two games and I would say 4 of them at least were due to very poor errors that were inconceivable during our incredible clean sheet run (anyone else remember that??!!).

It sounded like one way traffic for much of the game but unless we put the ball in the back of the net then it will be tense. On another day we might have more than two - some very good efforts on goal and today will do wonders for Kee's confidence (although I don't think that is a problem for him!).
I'm not hugely surprised that there were only 1,750 home fans today (196 from Stockport apparently) but at least it sounds like there was a pretty good atmosphere.
We were comfortably on top against a poor Stockport team, but you still felt we could throw the victory away until Kee's excellent strike made the game safe - good job he didn't take my advice to slip the ball to Zebs.
Impressed by the new signings Stanley and Robinson and hats off to the crowd who were very supportive when the team really needed them.
On tactics watch, we were more of a 4-1-2-2-1 than the 4-2-3-1 we have been playing. Oastler sat in front of the back four with O'Kane to the right and Stanley to the left ahead of him, as opposed to Mansell and Wroe as a two with O'Kane ahead in the hole.
Zebroski and Robinson managed to play further up the field than our wide men sometimes do, but that may have been more due to the poor quality of the opposition.
good post jon,by the sounds of it,and some of the other posts have read,these 2 new guys seem to be adding something to the team,got to give bucks credit for that,ok the opposition may not have been the strongest,but a welcome 3 points in the bag....simon
