    You pay to see "a match"....a poor match cost the same as a good match that's how the cookie crumbles in sport sensible.

    Bizarre it might seem....but I wasn't being serious....tongue in cheek moment really....I've been watching too much channel 232 (parliament)....you couldn't make it up the length some of them will go to, to defy the will of the majority.

    No plym you pay to be "entertained". The entertainment value for half the season was poor both this season and last. The problem is that supporting a football club is not the same as visiting a Restaurant or going to see a play or performance on a stage. I get that and that is the thing football plays on. However, how much they charge for their product is still an important issue and I think Argyle are, or were even this season, more expensive than most and to put it up yet again for what we have had is wrong. I have to fork out for this and that is my opinion. If I didn't do it then it would not be as relevant to me. You don't pay because you cannot attend often at home games. I get that and you are entitled to an opinion but if you had to pay it then maybe you wouldn't be so keen either.

    My point Plym is that you can't go around claiming a big majority. The fact is that it's far too small to justify a change of this magnitude, especially when you consider the age profiles of the two groups.

    Newsnow have an article about Portsmouth being interested in Ryan Edwards in the summer when he is out of contract.....we can't offer the wages to stop him going to a financially bigger club.

    Given we've only had 2 wins in the last 10 games, I can't avoid feeling nervous....

    Yes I agree....bit of a nervous twitch appearing in my left eye because of it....mustn't sit opposite any young ladies on the bus or train at the moment....they might get the wrong idea.

    Accrington and Scunthorpe are our best chances of gaining points....to get us beyond the 50+ mark.

    really do not want to be going into the last match of the season (Scunthorpe) needing something, or relying on other teams not to get something. We will beat Donny on Saturday and can then be 'on the beach'.

    A bit of a news story developing from an incident in the tunnel at the end of the Fleetwood v Barnsley game....involving the Fleetwood manager Joey Barton and Daniel Stendel Barnsley's manager....a few tweets have been quoted but have since been taken down regarding what happened... they had said that Stendel had been left with blood running down his face afterwards....the Police have been involved.

    Shock horror..........."Joey Barton involved in an incident". Nothing but consistent then.

    Some interesting facts from Argyle News

    1.....Jamie Ness has not played more than 30 games in any of his last four seasons because of injuries.

    2.....Jamie Ness has never stayed fit for any full season since he started playing League football in 2011.

    3.....Argyle have conceded 270 corners this season.....only Bolton on 271 have conceded more in all four leagues.

    Player ratings from Argyle Life:

    Starting XI

    Matt Macey – 5
    Oscar Threlkeld – 6
    Ryan Edwards – 4
    Niall Canavan – 5
    Gary Sawyer – 4
    Yann Songo’o – 3

    David Fox – 3
    Graham Carey – 5
    Antoni Sarcevic – 6
    Ruben Lameiras – 7
    Freddie Ladapo – 6

    Substitutes

    Ryan Taylor – 7 (Man of the Match)
    Lloyd Jones – N/A

    And an analysis of what went wrong. Interesting point is made that we started the game with the same midfield that got over-run in the home game against Doncaster!

    Ratings certainly don't look good.....Threlkeld looked the only defender with any pace......David Fox looked less than impressed when looking back towards goal after they scored their second.....that second goal looked well soft...Matt Macey did some good blocks...but he was well to blame for that goal.....the team just didn't look up for it....how can Derek Adams feel happy to send a team out so flat and not looking too interested.....are they really playing for him anymore....not much evidence from that video.

    Argyle News is telling us...that the team in 18th spot with four games to go has not been relegated in the last 15 years......well that sounds a fact that is pushing it's luck.

    It doesn't pay to listen to any of the garbage these sites come out with. You need x points, you have to be in Y position, if you are bottom at Christmas etc etc. Every one of those stats have been shot to pieces at some point or other. The bottom line is we need one win minimum. That should do it for sure.

    The EFL's new fixture list for season 2019/20 will be released on the 20th June 2019 at 9am.

    I wonder which list we'll be interested in....Div 1 or Div 2.

    God Plym you're the worst pessimist I've ever come across. Don't ever consider a job in bereavement counselling whatever you do.

    Derek Adams has spoken about why he is not in favour of playing Freddie Ladapo and Ryan Taylor together as a strike partnership.

    They haven't got any chemistry between them.....they are both individual players said Adams.
