    Saw Jamille Matt having a stormer for Newport against Leicester yesterday evening.

    Scored the first with a far post header in a well deserved win for Newport but his first touch hasn't improved!

    During his loan spell with us.... including Cup games he averaged a goal every two games....not many better than that for Argyle since the turn of the century.

    14 games....7 goals....:emoticon-0148-yes:.

    He's scored 14 goals in 32 League and Cup games this season for Newport.

    Have to say I liked him when he was here. Watched him with interest yesterday and he did well. I think Newport were worthy winners of that one and Leicester got what Leicester deserved out of the game. Nothing.

    Watched the Wolves v Liverpool game for a while tonight as well and have to say that Liverpool paid the price for playing their 2nd choicers. Got no sympathy and Wolves looked like they wanted it far more than them. Also got out of the game what they (liverpool) deserved which was nothing. These clubs, as soon as they get a sniff of Champions League or the Prem title, have no respect for competitions like the FA Cup. It was a poor game for Prem standards which is why I only watched some of it.

    I'll always watch a game if I know that Liverpool will lose.

    Interesting watching the 4th round draw....only four teams left in the pot.....and they were ...Arsenal, Spurs, Man U and C Palace.

    Other complain that winners always come from the clubs with the biggest and most active fan bases. If you've got it, flaunt it!

    I thought the goal at Rochdale was much better. The second one that is.

    Greens on Screen are reminding us today that it is 52 years since the famous away win at the Old Den against Millwall.

    They were unbeaten at home in the league for 3 years.....59 matches....Argyle's hadn't won away for 9 months and only had 2 away points that season at the time.

    The Old Den was a pretty rough place to go in those days and wearing your teams colours was not a clever choice.

    I went to this game because I was a green.....not expecting anything but a drubbing, our away record that season was a total embarrassment.

    We took a 2-0 lead and I believe they got one back just before half-time.....the signs were not good for the second-half, the pressure was building and the home fans were roaring on their team and it certainly turned into a tin hat occasion around the Argyle penalty area.....but they held on for the win.

    Millwall was near the Port of London Docks and most of the crowd were stevedores wearing Port of London Authority duffle coats having come off the morning shift via the many Pubs around the area.....you didn't see too many women in the crowd in those days it was a tough place to be.

    Sneaking out of the ground as best I could along Cold Blow Lane under the railway arches along the cobble stone road back toward my car, keeping a straight face until I was away towards Greenwich was achieved with difficulty....I heard about the Argyle coach being attacked with some windows being broken later....I bet that was a damn cold trip back to Plymouth that evening.

    Good grief was that 52 years ago....that was one of two games I have never forgotton....the other one was Arsenal v Man U....1957....four days before the Munich Air Disaster.

    My memory of a game when you wished to stuff a handkerchief in your mouth to keep yourself quiet was an away League Cup tie at QPR, then in the top tier, many moons ago.

    I met a school friend, also a student in London, to go to the game. He was late and so it was a scramble to get into the ground before kick off. In those days, you could pay cash at the turnstile so we shot into the first entrance we came to. We emerged into the ground right behind the goal at the home end. Argyle by some outlandish miracle, won if I remember rightly by 3 or 4 to nil, with a number of goals going in right in front of us. We did not move and we did not speak......
