Torquay can't even manage to get into League 2, They are in the Nation league....What does that say about us?

It seems that Fletcher and Olsson got their crutches tangled up when they came on the pitch.  :o

Sure, and we shouldn't jump off the pier, but it's got to have a psychological effect on the players, getting stuffed by a non-league outfit. These games should build momentum for the season openers.

yes its only a friendly but it's one of, if not the, last friendly we are playing before the season starts and that is most of our first team.
We are awful, we really really are

The fact we can't create or take chances isn't though, and it appears we are doing nothing about that!

What about the performance. Is that meaningless. Were the last 10 league games meaningless?  We really are a poor outfit and getting worse.

I think we are trying to lure the whole of the premiership into a false sense of security with our pre season performances. We are doing a great job of it to be fair.

Im sure we had a pretty poor pre-season when Clarke finished 8th, or is memory not serving me correctly?

Sadly in a way yes they were, the players knew they were safe. Not really the right mindset but happens to half a dozen PL clubs every season. Come Saturday week they'll be fine.

Embarrassing tbh to be losing to a non league club , friendly or not. No wonder Sakho is unsure about coming. If it was me I'd run a mile.

so you honestly aren't bothered that most of our first team players are losing 2-0 against a conference side? surely you would have expected us to win this game, wins makes confident players

Pre-Season results have zero influence on the upcoming season. That's factual from history applicable to all sides. The commotion that will follow this result will be an embarrassment and an excuse to Pulls bash.
