    Was Canavan injured....if not why take him off and put same for same on.....please someone explain that reason to me.....why have Fletcher and Jephcott been made subs if there is no chance of either coming on when we're 2-0 down.....answers in single syllable words please so I can understand.

    ONE shot on target....just not acceptable.

    I see on pasoti that Macey is MOM....yet he was at fault for at least one of the goals... and gives his defence no confidence.

    What does that tell you about the other players.

    Adams said at the post-match interview that we played poorly in the first....probably as poor has at any time during the season....obviously all the players fault then.

    We had a couple of half decent months and now it is back to early season again. I couldn't see us back in the mire but now I'm not as confident as I was a week or so ago.

    Just watched the video....a little harsh maybe to criticise Macey for the second goal...there wasn't really a view of Macey as the kick was about to be taken to come to any conclusion.

    Don't jump on the blame Adams bandwagon Plym.

    He's finished the game with Taylor, Ladapo, Lameiras and Carey on the pitch. How many more attackers can you have on the pitch and still have a functioning team?

    He has taken off attackers and put on defenders when we were on top of games and should just have kept doing what we were doing but it wa the other way around yesterday. We were bad and we got less bad even if not good enough.

    Sensible and I have told you that this side CAN play good stuff but it's too erratic. The players need to produce close to their best every week.

    Adam's must be partly to blame too somewhere.

    Now he's Director of Football, is the coaching staff too thin?

    Is it in the way he sets teams out? Instinctively, we all like the sound of keeping a winning side together but does he take that too far? Do we need to concentrate on stopping the better sides than thinking we can beat anyone, anytime?

    Whatever it is, it wasn't his substitutions that were at fault yesterday.

    Hopefully we will survive this season....if we don't I cannot even visualize what will happen next season......but I'll try.

    Whatever does happen personally I find it hard to see Derek Adams being able to do things any different......clear-out once again of players....the hope of hanging on to some out of contract players.....the struggle to bring in his first choice replacements on the budget that he has got.....to start performing as a team before Christmas and to stay out of a relegation battle....it all sounds so familiar doesn't it.

    I'm not sure if I can see a future for Derek Adams....but he has all the aces in his own hand regarding football knowledge at PAFC....where could the Board of Directors turn to with their lack of experience of running a club to either help or replace Adams.

    The players we have...who do we need to retain....Ruben Lameiras has flair although a little lightweight at times....Graham Carey, is he finished...personally I can't see a queue forming for him.....Freddie Ladapo has done well at times and scored the goals that Carey hasn't, but he isn't a target man....I think he would do better coming on as a sub against tiring defenders....Ryan Taylor has had a messy season not helped by injury.....Jamie Ness...just too injury prone....Sarcevic never seems clear of some form of injury....Gary Sawyer, has he another season in him....same for David Fox....Yann Songo'o, faithful work horse, but vulnerable when on a yellow, Adams took him off for that reason yesterday....Ryan Edwards, Niall Canavan, Scott Wootton, I'm sorry not good enough,all too slow. Oscar Threlkeld will be gone soon, but not sure if we should try and keep him here anyway....Kyle Letheren ok, but kept out by Adams choice of Macey, Why ? we had a clutch of Grant's...one left the other two are injury prone.

    Adams has too many of his players out of contract this summer...I think it will be very messy with players not accepting contracts until they check-out the market place....which stops Adams from bringing in new players.....just a repeat of last summer.....as I say I'm not sure that Adams will be any better than last year.....not optimistic about the future.....but I'm a glass half empty not half full man, so nothing new there.

    Sorry Joe....I just feel we're caught in a loop with Adams now.....and with no lump of money to buy better players....it will just be a repeat next season of what we're having to endure this season.

    The only bright spot this weekend was me predicting 12pts from Argyle failing again.....how depressing can that be.

    To, me, Lameiras is key in this. He's a handful when we're on top but even allowing for the fact he's a flair player, his defending is woeful. Have a look at Charlton's second goal and see how Threlkeld is left 2 on 1. There are games you'd pick him for: at home against a bottom half team perhaps but away at Doncaster, who've had cracking home form? Not for me.

    Leaving Lameiras out in the tough games means you can play Taylor through the middle when you're likely to be forced into more long balls than you'd like and then go with Ladapo and Carey up there with him.

    Carey isn't having a good spell: he missed two good chances on his left foot again yesterday. But he has made for assists than anyone else this season and those corners and free kicks are priceless.

    I blame Macey entirely for the second goal yesterday. It's up to the keeper to set the wall and to make sure he can't be beaten from what's really a gently paced looper. He features half a dozen of so times in the 10 minute highlights and not once is it convincing. Shots hit him rather than being saved, several are parried down and piked up rather than being caught cleanly. I can't help wondering if there's a clause in the loan saying if he's fit, he must play because I can't see how he gets the No 1 shirt otherwise.

    Bitterly disappoint yet again. It's becoming a habit and I don't like it. I am blaming Adams and why not. It's his team and all they can do is play half of anything most of the time. Who is to blame if not him then? The Press, the Supporters, the players either individually or collectively, the Kit man, the Coach Driver?

    You forgot the tea lady.....maybe the sponsors expect them to eat a Ginsters everyday and especially pre-match.
