Pre-match talk was about the forthcoming curry being organised by Mr_W, what formation would we be playing (442, 541, 433, who would be in the hole, as Ellis is in the side who do we should for to be included in the Hereford game and would Lingy be here come Saturday (well, the last bit wasn't true).
The game started off in the traditional Torquay manner with the Wombles nearly capalising on a defensive mistake but Bobby was on the ball, catastrophe averted.
Much talk was of the Saah-Ellis combo which apart from Ellis getting caught on the wrong side of the lively Midson were okay.
We seemed not to want to shoot but walk the ball into the net until Stephens (playing a good 45 minutes) ran down the left wing like Billy Whizz and shot and scored with a deflected shot. Torquay 1 nil up, Shirley some mistake, but no and we were.
The wombles number 22 seemed to be caught fannying around and his pocket was picked quicker than Fagan by O'Kane (who on last nights performance will be sold come January) who cleverly lobbed the keeper - 2 nil up.
Several passes going adrift, not sure if the Force was with us or the wind had blown it off course.
O'Kane became providor for Howe with a pin point cross, 3 nil up before half-time. Talk was of could we actually win this match.
Charlie 'The Fax' Ademeno' came on just before half-time and proved a lively customer.
The second half started with the Wombles on the attack against a Torquay team minus Stephens (Atieno taking his place on the wing) but we stood firm.
It was Atieno who provided the
The Wombles to their credit tried to get a goal but to no affect. You can see why they have shipped so many goals of late.
MOM - O'Kane with 300 or so Wombles fans (looked twice that!).
Still think that a solid CB is required along with another striker is required. Nice to be 6 points clear of the drop and with Plymouth getting pumped 5 - 1 a good time to be a Torquay fan.
......Excellent report my dear Lord_Tanktop, and a pleasure to read!.........
