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

Posted by Adam Cannan on Sunday, August 31, 2014, In : Match Reports 

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...

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

Posted by Adam Cannan on Wednesday, May 7, 2014, In : Match Reports 

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...

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

Posted by Adam Cannan on Wednesday, March 12, 2014, In : Match Reports 

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...

Plymouth Argyle 0 - 4 York City (04-2-14)

Posted by Adam Cannan on Wednesday, March 12, 2014, In : Match Reports 

So after a few weeks of working Saturday's starved me of my football fix at Home Park I left at 5pm still in need of a fix.

The greens started the game with a quick tempo and on the front foot until 10 minutes in and the referee deemed Trotman to of caught the striker as he was about to pull the trigger.

Harsh was an understatement, Without the ability I only had one look at it but seemed Trotts got a solid foot on the ball.

Anyway as with the letter of the law the, The man in black pointed to t...

Plymouth Argyle 1 - 1 Southend United (11-1-14)

Posted by Adam Cannan on Tuesday, March 11, 2014, In : Match Reports 

After a decent Christmas and New Year period, Argyle was unbeaten in five games and saw this extended to six after the visit of The Shrimpers.

Phil Brown arrived with a decent team which started with no less than three former Pilgrims in the starting 11. Ryan Leonard, Will Atkinson and Conor Clifford all starting against there former employers.

The game itself didn't produce to much to shout about until the 65th minute when a Dominic Blizzard deflected shot looped over a young and impressive Da...

Plymouth Argyle 2 - 0 Torquay United (01-01-14)

Posted by Adam Cannan on Wednesday, January 1, 2014, In : Match Reports 
Well as we enter 2014 what's a better way to start a new year and the second half of the season with a Devon derby at home.

After torrential rain the last week it was no surprise that no less then four league two games were called off in the morning.

Bristol Rovers v Cheltenham , Exeter v Wycombe , Newport v Oxford and Northampton v Chesterfield all becoming victims of the stormy conditions making pitches water logged and unplayable. 

No such problem at Home Park however after ground staff playe...

Afc Wimbledon 1-1 Plymouth Argyle (29-12-13)

Posted by Adam Cannan on Monday, December 30, 2013, In : Match Reports 
So we left Plymouth about 1030 am with Big Tone driving and Dad in the front comfort seats and behind myself and Rob tightly packed in Tony's Kompressor C200.

Quick stop off to pick up the German Chris at the Barn Owl and have a quick hot drink for the road in Exshitter to make the back seat even more a tight fit.

The Coffee at the Barn Owl proved to nearly be a rookie mistake as getting to Richmond and being stumped by non moving traffic cost us the opening two minutes. 

Running across the main...

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
