    Right this time I really believe that nothing can go wrong. Reasoning being that everything possible has happened already and there is just simply nothing left to go wrong. We will win this at a canter riding side saddle and doing wheelies.

    So anyone who predicts Argyle to drop any points at all this Saturday in the prediction league should have to forfeit all of their points. COYG............

    So the truly dreadful Herald site, which sets off my anti-virus software as though it was a Russian dating site (if I knew what that looked like), has a widget that allows you to pick your team for the upcoming match and publish it via Twitter.

    This is the "Most Popular" pick:

    ... and here's mine:

    One main striker in each case for this one. I can'r really imagine Jervis playing back there as shown in the Popular team but still...

    How can that "most popular IX" not play Songo'o, our most consistent player in the last few games.

    Bradley was back to his best against Blackburn....so I would have him back....Songo'o would be in front of the defence, but I'm not sure how that works with Diagourara, can we have two ball winners playing in similar rolls....worked against Blackburn....so I'm not sure who would be left out of your team.....but I agree that Blissett at the moment is our best option up front.

    Just managed to get myself a seat for tomorrows game.....I shall have to behave myself sitting amongst wombles.....I haven't seen Argyle lose since Peter Reid's Gillingham game during those very dark days.

    So can I be a lucky charm for them.....it's about time they got some luck.

    Argyle have signed goalkeeper Remi Matthews on an emergency loan.

    He is 23 years old and third choice for Championship side Norwich...behind Angus Gunn and Michael McGovern.

    Although he hasn't played first team for Norwich, he has been out on loan a few times and has got first team experience at various EFL clubs.

    "Popular" probably means the 3 people that responded!

    Looks like about as good a keeper as we might have wanted or expected. His loan included a season long loan last term in Scotland where he made 27 appearances so he hasn't just been sat around for the last 10 years. Norwich fans seem to approve of him and the club have just given him a new contract so they must think he's ok as well. Could have been a lot worse. Now all Argyle need to do is stop Cooper sticking pins in dolls when trying to get a game and we should be ok. I think a number of people might not have been too bothered if Cooper had kept the shirt for the next game but I can understand why Adams might not want that. We would have had to field a 12 year old as sub if they'd done that.

    Plymouth Ladies goalkeeper was ahead of the 12 year old sensible in the pecking order.

    It would be a bit unfair to chuck Cooper in at the deep end. If we were winning every other week and in mid-table it wouldn't be so bad but every mistake is magnified at the moment. It's also not as if there's a possibility of stepping into the team as a fixture. As it is, his confidence will be sky-high - let him keep it that way!

    Wasn't particularly advocating he actually play notdistant but lets face it he was already thrown in at the deep end in the last match. My comments were a reflection of some I'd read on the other fan site.

    nil nil halftime. Doesn't look stats wise that this is a thrilling game. Still, not losing so still everything to play for.

    Radio commentary suggests we've been comfortable and Wimbledon have made very little of their possession. We will have the wind at our backs in second half.

    Blissett on for Jervis, Adams doesn't make the mistake of taking off his only striker again....

    Well, hallelujah, pressure from Wimbledon at the end but Argyle hung on, including a smart save from Matthews. I think the worm is turning and if only we can get some of those injured players off the treatment table, we'll be OK.

    Just got in.....wow that was dour...spoilt by the wind to be honest....I don't think I could watch that type of game all season.

    I'm definitely Argyles lucky charm.....they don't lose when I'm there.

    Argyle did what was necessary against a Wimbledon side who had no bite or much idea how to break our defence down....how they beat Rotherham 3-1 and Northampton 1-0 i'll never understand.

    We gave them corner after corner and they never really looked like they would score.

    First half was even without either goalkeeper being bothered, we started brightly in the second half and for 10/15 minutes we threatened down the right with Carey trying to cut in onto his favourite left foot.....got one good shot away that just went the wrong side of the post....they weren't closing him down quick enough....later on Carey did get behind the defence and his shot across goal was touch in by Grant off the underside of the cross bar.

    Credit to Remi Matthews who was very secure in goal.
