Good signing but can they really afford Gary Johnson and a a team of full time professionals on crowds of 1,500?
Funnily enough they are apparently the only full time professional side in National League South, whereas there are about half a dozen full time professional clubs in the equivalent National League North. Kiddy Harriers for example are in to their third year full time at this level and had a crowd of about 1500 on Saturday (albeit they too are struggling financially ; the Chairman personally financed the 75 k transfer fee they forked out last season)

Now that's taking the Gary Johnson love-in a bit too far!
He would of been a decent replacement for Tisdale (not offence to Matt who’s started great) given his experience of league 2 and previous experience of managing clubs on tight budgets like Yeovil & Cheltenham (taking Yeovil to the championship has to be one of the greatest achievements for a manager managing a club of that size)

I fancy Torquay have pulled off a real coup there
