Alan Knill: Feels Torquay is the best place to live in England

The former Bury boss is managing in the south for the first time and he says, despite the club's location, Torquay has plenty to offer to players.

"I think it's best you're really honest with players," he told the club's official website. "I want them to come down and see the place.

"I want them to see the town and realise how far it is. If I'm bringing a player from the north and we want them to commit and live in the area, they need to know about the travelling.

"I don't want a player to come here and then regret it because of the geography. I'm sure once they're here, and I've said this to most players, they will see there isn't a better place to live in this country.

"It is so different from most other places in England and I know they'll enjoy the football as well as living in the area."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
