I must confess that I feel little hate for Torquay and think the two matches against them would create a lot of interest. Hating Torquay is a bit like wanting to kick sand in the geek's face at the beach.
I say "arise from the ashes Torquay and give us some fun in Div 2."
I don't remember who said it here on Exeweb, many years ago, but.... Playing Torquay is like playing your little brother at Subuteo, you get no pleasure from beating him, but you can not let gobby little shyte win.

Sums it up perfectly I think and credit to the original poster!

Interestingly its exactly how Argyle feel about us, except we are the little brother.

Oh I think you should look at their boards even near playing us or after we dicked them 4-0 recently, They care and they hate us, They have no other rival near, Torquay they put an arm round them and neither Bristol clubs or Pompey don't care about them or see them as rivals because they have their own local rivalries.

Yeah, pretty sure they sing a number of songs about us in their Cornish bacteria breeding ground they call stands. Have we ever had a song about Torquay.

I think it was originally Alan Crockford (and probably in Exe Directory)
