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

March 12, 2014

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 the spot and sent Trotman on his way.

Those two decisions in the 10th minute ended the game as a spectacle. Fletcher sent Cole the wrong way from the spot and then just before the break the impressive McCombe latched on to another in the box to put York 2 up at the break.

Down to 10 for nearly the whole game took its toll and in the last 5 York scored another two to give Argyle there worst home defeat in 19 years.

Awful score but on paper doesn't really do justice on a game ruined by a decision or two.


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

March 11, 2014

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...

What's Hampering The England Side?

January 19, 2014
Due to the fact we're now in a World Cup year it wont be long before the nation gets gripped in the usual excitement of world cup fever, Or will it?

Recent national tournaments have been a nightmare due to many factors, and the reasons for England's failures at the biggest stage in the world is often the cause of discussion before, during and after the finals.

I will try to give my opinion to why we are still waiting 48 years later since we lasted tasted glory.
The quarter final seems to be now ...

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

January 1, 2014
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)

December 30, 2013
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...

Onwards and Upwards 2014

December 30, 2013
So with the new years a couple of days away I have decided it was about time to commit to writing a football blog week in week out as opposed to previous attempts of one every month or so and then forgetting all about it.

Hopefully I can cover a range of football related topics from Plymouth Argyle in League Two and the England national team in a world cup year.

All levels of football will get mention from Premiership to the Skrill Premier.

As the new years about to turn we have Arsenal going in...

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
