Here we go then, I’m going for my hat trick of wins this season after two comebacks against Fleetwood and Peterborough. The moral of the story today then is: if we go behind, don’t panic, FBH has started the thread, City will come back and win.

Gonna be a tough one though, Ipswich are a good side. But so are we, let’s all have confidence and cheer the lads on to a famous victory, either from the stands or our lounges. I won’t be at the ground today unfortunately but will be shouting at the TV like a lunatic.

Enjoy the game lads and lasses, COYR.

Come on City, let's get revenge for 1957. Bleddy Alf Ramsey.

Thanks to the wonderful Grecian Archive we can read the match programme from their last (league) visit, 65 years ago. Board says club has no money to spend!

Great read, that. Imagine having three games at SJP in four days. The 1957 equivalent of Chas must have been doing his nut.
Also noting that Torquay were the top side in Devon then. Wonder if that will happen again?

That season was the closest Torquay have ever been to the second tier (Championship). Went down to the final day.

Ipswich pipped them on goal average and soon were champions of England (under Ramsey). Don't know what happened to Torquay ... ;)
