    Nice to have a neutral’s perspective Ian. I think most Argyle fans are now resigned to League 1 next year – some possibly even looking forward to it. There is quality in the squad (though a sizeable chunk of it is out on loan), but a combination of inconsistency, lack of confidence and a defensive injury crisis that’s lasted the whole season seems to have doomed us. Your views on Stockdale make especially interesting reading – he’s divided the fanbase since his arrival, largely due to a couple of high-profile howlers that have cost us points. Overall, though, I think he’s the best keeper on our books by some distance and it’s good to have that reinforced by a MoM performance on Saturday. Shame we can’t say that about most of the rest of the team though…

    What a refreshing piece of journalism – and oh, so true in content as reflects Argyle’s position and survival chances.

    Keep the Faith.

  3. Both teams followed this up with good wins last night – especially Plymouth. I can’t remember them winning a game away from home by any other method than a backs to the wall, sneak a goal on the break to win 1-0 job. I saw them play at Reading in February and they fought in determined fashion that night. Mariner has certainly improved things after the rudderlessness of Sturrock’s second spell. The points gap now looks bridgeable.
