Who Brendan Rodgers could buy to repair a broken Liverpool !

June 3, 2015

So Liverpool need a favour from Arsenal to make their summer a better prospect than it could be if Aston Villa win the Old Lady on Saturday.

Liverpool's summer schedule could differ hugely depending who lifts the FA Cup on Saturday, If Wenger wins it for a joint record 6 times then it would see Liverpool advance to the Europa League group stage meaning their first fixture would be on the 17th September but the other side of the coin a Villa win would mean the Pool would have to enter in the 3rd qualifying round beginning July 30th!

Liverpool's final game in Malaysia is on the 24th July not leaving much room for a decent prep or rest.

Either way if FSG keep BR this is a few players I think they could get in without much trouble and give Liverpool at least a chance at the top 4 next season. If not I fear Rogers will be gone by Christmas.

Player                              My Valuation

Christian Benteke                 25

Toby Alderweireld                7.0

Arturo Vidal                          25

Carl Jenkinson                    8-10

Stevan Jovetić                    8-10

James Milner                       15

Asmir Begović                       5

Petr Čech                              5


Prefessor Wenger the master of the Old Lady

June 3, 2015

Arsene Wenger has had a fair bit of criticism the last few seasons for losing ground on Premiership's elite clubs but come January every year the distraction of the FA cup always seems to bring out the best from his sides.

After beating Hull in last years competition Wenger has been in the final 6 times and picked up the Old Lady 5 times in 18 seasons and losing just the 1 final.


Wenger only this week has...

Pushing For Promotion

November 21, 2014

So after a great 0-1 win on the 6th September on Sky Sports against Luton at Kenilworth Road, September took a change for the worse. Going on to lose three of the next four games with only a 2-0 home win against Hartlepool the only points picked up in a dismal few weeks after Luton.

Since then Sheridan and Argyle have gone under the radar quietly creeping up the table picking up five wins out of seven and also progressing through the 1st round of the FA Cup against a tricky Conference North si...

Plymouth Argyle 3 - 0 Exeter City ( 16 - 8 - 14 )

August 31, 2014

So a new season has crept up on us quite nicely, thanks largely to an entertaining World Cup in Brazil.

Considering England went home on the first flight back to London, which even for me was earlier than I expected.

I enjoyed the World Cup and was pretty happy to see the likes of Chile, Costa Rica and Colombia all putting in a good showing against the might of Brazil, Uruguay and Holland.

I think in the end German efficiency again showed what football is all about, CONSISTANCY.

Anyway enoug...

Football's Financial Madness

July 19, 2014

Now the World Cup dust has settled in Brazil, it gives us a little over a month before domestic football returns.

I have been meaning to do a piece on the current state of finances within our football clubs for a while.

What I have found is long what I've suspected that for clubs like my club Plymouth Argyle, the dream of making the promised land of the Premiership are now further away then ever and the chance of ever getting there has never been so unobtainable than they are at the moment.

Argyle Summer Of 2014 #2

July 8, 2014

So mostly due to my twins George and Matthew being born three months early at the end of March and spending the last few months at work or in the hospital its not been the best start to my intentions of doing my blog weekly or fortnightly at the minimum.

Hopefully now the wife and the two boys are on the mend I can start to get this blog really coming thick and fast.

So argyle have added a full pre season schedule to get them ready to kick off with a bang on August the 9th.

These are the pre se...

Plymouth Argyle 0 - 2 Oxford United (12-4-14)

May 7, 2014

Just over 8000 fans turned out to witness what turned out to be the end of our playoff hopes for another season.

Argyle had the chance to leapfrog an Oxford side who had lost the last three games and really put a statement of intent on making the playoffs.

It was not to be, The game was delayed to mark the 25th Anniversary of the Hillsborough tragedy to a kick off time of 15:07.

A minutes silence was impeccably held to mark the 96 lives lost that day.

Though a good cause to show respect I've neve...

Top 6 Spending In The Wenger Era

March 17, 2014
The last few seasons the press and supporters have called for Wenger's head after every season has come and gone leaving Arsenal trophy less going into the 9th season without any silverware, But should we be surprised?

I've been backing Wenger to bring trophies and the glory days back to Arsenal since Vieira lifted the FA Cup after defeating United on penalties in Millennium Stadium in Cardiff in May 2005.

I've often tried deflecting criticism of Wenger by so called Arsenal and all football fan...

Plymouth Argyle 5 - 0 Morecambe (01-03-14)

March 12, 2014

Typically after my last visit and a bad result at home to York the pilgrims have gone away and had two away wins on the bounce.

First on the Tuesday after the York game away to Dagenham and a 2-1 victory thanks to a goal a piece from Reid and Alessandra.

Then on to beat promotion hopefuls Fleetwood 4-0 at The Highbury Stadium and in our 4th meeting against the newest tidy club to make its way from the Non League in recent years.

Anyway today it was Morecambe. Argyle have played Morecambe 5 tim...

About Me

Adam Cannan I've been attending football matches from 1991 at 10 years old standing in the Mayflower terrace at Home Park with my dad and grandad. Since then I have witnessed the highs and lows of following my home town club. From relegation's to promotion winning campaigns to watching our club torn apart from the dreaded administrators and irresponsible owners to the now steady ship we are sailing again. This blog will be updated often to show the travels and roller coaster ride we go through following PAFC. Hopefully this season I will be doing the Blog on a weekly basis and will try to add as many match reports as well as all football related matters. Also I will try to add a fair and unbiased point of view from a general football fanatic. Semper Fidelis
