The crowd will be a small one, but you would expect 400/500 Argyle fans to be there.

2,600 is my guess.

Opportunity for Accy fans to see their team tear the opposition a new one.

Accrington Stanley V Plymouth Argyle

2016/17 Prediction League; Game 21 v Plymouth (home)


I have some good news .................. well, slightly good news; over the last 10 League games we are NOT the worst team in League Two as regards points gained .............that honour falls to Notts County, who’ve won 1, drawn 2 and lost 7 (5 points); we’ve won 1, drawn 3 and lost 6, for 6 points; we are, therefore, statistically merely the SECOND worst team in League Two ............so that’s all right then .................... mind you, 2 points and 2 goals in our last 7 doesn’t make automatic promotion look a likely prospect any time soon ..................

On the same theme, we should be safe from the relegation places for another week, at least, since we’re on 21 points with a -6 GD, and 23rd-placed Cheltenham are on 18 points with a worse GD (-10) – unless, of course, we get a tonking come this weekend, which isn’t going to happen ..................is it, Santa?

Plymouth, you’ll have seen, are back on top of the Division, with 41 points from 20 games; they’re the only team to have won 13 times in the League – against our 5 – and one of only two to have won more than half their games, Donnie with 12 being the other. Bearing in mind that we beat Donnie (at home) – and how long ago was THAT! – and that they and Plymouth have both lost 5 times, is it, mayhap, our turn to turn the tables? (Nice idea!) ...........We did, after all, beat them 2-1 at home in March, with a 85th minute penalty from Billy Whizz and a 93rd minute headed winner from Shay McCartan, after being one down for over an hour (Jake Jervis)

Having lost out in the playoffs last season (snap!), Plymouth have been up at the sharp end of the table most of this season, although they did have a recent wobble, losing three in a row (3-0 to Grimsby, 2-0 to Barnet and 2-1 to Morecambe) before stabilising the ship with a 2-0 defeat of Donnie - who they replaced at the top once again, last time out; they’ve scored 31(5th best) and conceded 21 (3rd best), with seven clean sheets and the same number of strike-outs (including their first three games of the season, all of which they lost!)

Goal-machine Reuben Reid turned down a new contract in the Summer, and eventually moved to the flesh-pots of Exeter; two other players – AM Tyler Harvey and RB Kelvin Mellor also rejected new terms (sounds like us, this!) and joined Wrexham and Blackpool respectively; former Oldham and Oxford striker Deane Smalley was released, as were three others, and four went out on free transfers, best know being LW Gregg Wylde, who went to Millwall, CB Peter Hartley (love your jam, Pete!), who went to Bristol (R not C), and GK James Bittner, now at Waterlogged Spa FC (aka Newport); CB Curtis Nelson brought in a handsome £1/4 million from Oxford .......... They brought in CB Nauris Bulvitis from Spartaks Jurmala (a Latvian side only founded in 2007), plus strikers David Goodwillie (Aberdeen), Ryan Donaldson (Cambridge), Jimmy Spencer (also Cambridge) and Jordan Slew (Chesterfield), Crawley defender Sonny Bradley, Bolton MF Oskar Threlkeldand Crewe’s CM David Fox (formerly of Blackpool, Colchester and Norwich), plus a few more that I know very little about .................. Jimmy Spencer broke his ankle in mid-November and will be out until at least February, and they’ve got a couple of other long-term absentees as well, including Ryan Brunt; Spencer had become first-choice central striker after loanee Paul-Arnold Garita was injured; leading scorers are MF Graham Carey with 9, Jake Jervis with 6, and Jordan Slew (see “Chesterfield” above) who has 4; Goodwillie and Brunt have none each, and Nauris Bulvitis (anyone know the Latvian for “man on!” – apparently it’s “cilveks uz”!) has three ..............(or “tris”, in Latvian)

They’re at Newport in the second round of the FA Synchronised Swimming Cup next week, having put out the Stags 2-1 away in Round 1; they went out of the EFL Cup 2-0 at Reading (Jaap’s Stammereres) in the first round, and managed to lose two out of three in the EFLTroffy, to Swansea u21s and AFC Wimbledon (again!)

Deadline for entries this week is, as always, scheduled kick –off time, which is 3.00pm on 17th December (and those who remember at 2.59 that they haven’t posted need to tie a knot in their hankies! )...............So; ”Are we downhearted?” ” Bloody right we are!” “Are we going to put it right?” “Hope so ..............” It’s getting to the point where some people who never did (including me) have started predicted defeats in some games (but in my case not in anything like as many as we’ve actually lost, which now (League only) matches the whole of last season (9)) ......... Come on lads; no-one minds a joke, but this is getting a bit silly now!

Accrington has  raised £8,348 of £40,000 to buy  a big screen electronic screen for the Wham Stadium

Quote

There has been a football club in the small Lancashire town of Accrington ever since the origins of League football back in 1888.

The club that became famous for resigning mid-season from the football league and then the slow resurrecting, thus earning the tag as the club that wouldn't die. It's this story and the determination of a small number of individuals that makes the name of Accrington Stanley famous worldwide.

Recent years have seen the club firmly established back in the football league with ambitions to move even higher up the league ladder.

With the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] campaign, the OASSC aims to match this ambition and provide the first ever electronic screen at the Wham Stadium, providing highlights and information to the fans and a potential new revenue stream to assist the growth of our football club.

The intention is to locate a free standing screen in the area adjacent to the control box between the Whinney Hill away terrace and away seating, thus making it extremely visible to our Clayton End and Jack Barrett stand home areas.

The past few months have seen some significant changes at the Wham Stadium and this project is very much in keeping with the progress made both on and off the pitch.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] gives all our supporters, both near and wide, a real opportunity to show their support and help fund the new screen.

Any surplus funds generated will be used to provide screens for the Fanzone area to allow supporters to view the same content whilst enjoying their pre-match refreshments.

The revenues generated from the screen will go back into the playing budgets to help the manager build a successful and sustainable squad.

How do I get involved?

It's  important to remember that this isn't charity. We're not asking for your donations – we want to give you something back too. Either a limited edition reward or unique experience.

There are many ways to help support this Fanfunding project and everyone can play their part. It's important to Accrington Stanley that local businesses, sponsors and supporters all work together towards a common goal – a brand new scoreboard. Everyone involved will get something back for showing their support for the campaign.
