Not the sort of signing Argyle need in a "possible run-in" come the latter half of the season.

The news is mentioned over the road there.

I wonder how many over there will be cock-a-hoop regarding Mr Blisset ?.

Here's the first of many..

"Yep and he was a real handful in the pre season friendly for us."



Seen that post now.

On Facebook there are some people absolutely crowing about this guy, With quotes of ''give him a chance'' and ''remember so and so''.

Looks like the chap playing for Newport and on loan from Cardiff, will not be coming to Home Park in January then.

I read rumours of ex-Argyle player, Conor H, may be released by Barnsley. Some on Facebook would have him back.

lol! Or have I been whooshed here? Released by Barnsley at what price? Hourihane has been one of their best players in their promotion and subsequent reasonably successful seasons in the second tier and it would take a minimum 7 figure fee to prise him away from there, which I think may just be out of Argyle's price range. Has he done something wrong or had a major personal issue, because there is absolutely zero chance of him being released otherwise.

All that plus the enormous staffing and maintenance bills needed to keep Home Park at the cutting edge of awesomeness and you start to get a picture of the terrible uphill struggle we face on a daily basis.

We're Plimuff Argo, we're doin our best.



I like that quote, it's catchy.

Be not afeared Pilgrims. We had ex England U20 International triallist at Tavi yesterday.

Ross Jenkins , you remember , scored on his debut at Morecombe in loan spell from Watford in 2012 before groin injury in next game. Career stalled with loan to Barnet, short spell at Crawley before going to Romania.

If this comes off and Wylde and four secured incomings rumours are true could be short window for interest.

Is that the one who was pretty tidy but wouldn't travel to Plymouth. Do other clubs sign players that won't play home games I wonder?

Fox - ''Yep, another Job Seeker will earn a crust at the PAFC Home for crap footballers.''
and
''Does anyone know what odds Argyle are to get relegated next season? now looks like a good time to lump on before they shorten.''

I think in those cases above you are a little wrong about their ability. I trust you lumped £1000s on Argyle being relegated  Laughing

Yes - I know I'm a twat thanks! santa

Not you as well! If you think the above is shite then tell ss68 not me. It's a list of quotes made by ss68 about players when they originally signed. The same players who have kept the club near the top for most of the season. I notice that ss68 hasn't responded - no surprise there then.
DA's transfer record is good so I have trust in him to get it right.

All were pretty underwhelming when they signed, except Fox. No one is criticsing Adams just the sort of regime where we have to dig around pig shit hoping for truffles.

It would be a fruitless task waiting for an objective post from you, wouldn't it. Can you really not see that the chronic underinvestment in previous transfer windows (esp January) makes pessimism about this one - and thus the rest of the season - justifiable? Actually I'm beginning to wonder if you are genuinely incapable of seeing anything which may contradict your views.

As for the name calling, normally I would agree that it detracts from the debate. However, a couple of posters have again shown that the word 'twat' is all they and their views (and of course BANTZ) are worthy of. I wish they would just piss off.

Either this is 100% correct and true or Adams is being rather coy, not wishing to spill the beans.

That is all it is a rumour.

If he were to leave Barnsley, League One and Championship sides will get first dibs.

Argyle can only afford lower league players and CH would be too much for the Argyle wallet.

I'm quite capable of even minded debate, but it becomes somewhat difficult when a debate is seen by a few as ramming an opinion down your throat and following it up with abuse and the stereotypical name calling.
As far as the January transfer window is concerned, yes the last 2 were crap and cost us, but I don't think this window will be like that, just my opinion and we shall shortly see how that pans out.

What's that (possibly apocryphal) definition of insanity provided by Einstein? Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, was it?

So if the last two January windows were poor, why were they poor? Was it due to a lack of investment and ambition? And given that the same guy is holding the purse strings this January as in the last two and with the same manager as last year, why are you expecting this year to be different? Is that based on anything? Or is it just gut instinct?

Because the state of Home Park, the Boxing Day omnishambles and the possible 'redevelopment' of the grandstand all suggest that Brent is still thinking that the cheap option is the only option for Argyle. Why on earth would it be different this time around?

Your reply is an example of how some posters ridicule comments that don't mirror your view. (bit like over on the farm really) We all know the transfer window last Jan was poor and it would have been nice to know exactly why the manager in each case did not appear to be backed. However I see little (no) point in assuming that this January window will be the same. It's all guesswork at present and not until it's over can fans really comment how bad or good the window was. History is exactly that so your pessimism is based on gut instinct.
Of course, no matter who Argyle sign, the same people will pop up on this forum with the normal blinkered ridicule about new players. These are the posters, led by ss68, who ridiculed just about every signing in the summer and who now feel slightly embarrassed that we have been in the top 3 for months and in the 3rd round of the FA Cup. If January comes and goes with very little player movement then I'll be asking questions, but my gut instinct is that DA will bring in 3 or 4 new players. DA has hardly put a foot wrong in player selection so whoever he signs is fine by me and that includes players from non-league.
There are loads of examples in daily life where ''doing the same thing over and over again'' does produce different results and also remember that DA has worked with JB for a while now and has signed a 4-year contract so I'm guessing DA is happy working with JB.

Nathan coming to argyle has just been confirmed on radio Devon, so must be true Razz
All the negativity on this forum about a non league player joining a promotion chasing league team is not the fault of the player.
I wish the lad well, thing is Derek has been pretty canny in the transfer market, I think he has done well, even goodwillie has improved.
So for me I still trust in DA to achieve success. However if it was evident that the club is well funded and Derek had come in for a non league player on merit, then it's a different scenario.
But given the, last games ticketing fiasco, the derelict state of the non developed side of home Park, the ongoing issue of  a limited tenth besr playing budget, it does all point to minimal investment all round.
Consequently the only way this club will get back into the championship is with a more ambitious positive owner, which obviously isn't Brent.
So for 2017 really hope it's positive for argyle, but as a lifelong fan I feel somewhat underwhelmed given our league position.
In short Brent argues for football austerity when in reality argyle needs real investment.
Ain't going to happen under you know who.

Evidence to date of brent's pathetic levels of 'investment' in the club both on the playing and non-playing side all points to a totally inadequate budget again this January transfer window.  The brentophiles clearly see something different.  I'd like to know what that is.

That's pretty much how I see it. Basically, pretty good, professional on the pitch, and totally unprofessional off it.

Just on the Hourihane issue, my Barnsley supporting, golf playing mate out here says that Hourihane is held in very high regard and if he does leave, it'll be for a bigger club, possibly Celtic.

We have enough non goalscoring strikers as it is why had another one. Is he really going to score 15-20 goals a season in league one. Nope.

Exactly Freathy, Brent has done nothing to improve the club on or off the field in his six years of non investment and failure, will it take the usual twats another six years of Brent Bullshit to realise this?

I think you're being a bit oversensitive there. I wasn't looking to ridicule anyone, just making the point that the same JB is holding the purse strings and has refused to invest to maximise chances of direct promotion in two Januarys in a row. Why would things be different this time? My pessimism is not based on gut instinct, it is based on past behaviour in similar circumstances and at the same time of year. This is a logical although admittedly not infallible basis for predicting what is likely to happen in January.

I'm not surprised to read that your only argument in favour of this year turning out better is based on gut instinct. Basically blind trust in Adams which also implies trusting in Brent to back his manager with the funds required (which doesn't seem to have been the case in the previous 2 years). And blind trust/gut instinct hasn't served Argyle so well over the last few year: now that is worthy of ridicule.

But since you're in a chatty mood, Tony, maybe you'd like to finally respond to this thread:

http://www.argyletd.com/t10173p25-punching-above-our-weight

Remember it? It's the one where you sanctimoniously claimed the moral high ground, boasting of your refusal to mock on the grounds of disability, looks, lifestyle or job then made a jibe about me, PatDunne and ss68 'not making it up the career ladder'. Doesn't this make you a massive hypocrite and a pretty nasty piece of work? Isn't it also pretty cowardly to have run away from this despite the fact that you responded to other points further down the thread?

No doubt you'll be one of the first to fire a broadside if some of these "fourth division pros" like Carey and Bradley are sold on in January.

Whether Blisset will come good, who knows, I'm not overwhelmed by the signing but can he be another Bogle whose plied his trade in non league for a few years and allegedly is attracting a lot of interest ? Who knows, the least we can do is to back the player.

The players that Derek has brought in the time he's been here, most of which were unknown to the great and the good on ATD, have by and large been successes, so I'll go along with the homework that Derek's obviously done on this and every other player.
As to the budget for further signings in January, financially it would appear we're in a better place than the previous 2 seasons, so the jury's out on that one until we see what business is done.

''Does anyone know what odds Argyle are to get relegated next season? now looks like a good time to lump on before they shorten.''

I think in those cases above you are a little wrong about their ability. I trust you lumped £1000s on Argyle being relegated  Laughing

Yes - I know I'm a twat thanks! santa

watch football, live football, talk shite
Not you as well! If you think the above is shite then tell ss68 not me. It's a list of quotes made by ss68 about players when they originally signed. The same players who have kept the club near the top for most of the season. I notice that ss68 hasn't responded - no surprise there then.
DA's transfer record is good so I have trust in him to get it right.
All the players listed above are fourth division pro's good enough to play for an average go nowhere rundown tinpot Village club like Brents Argyle, but no further, its all about ambition and my point is ST there is none at the Brentihad.

No doubt you'll be one of the first to fire a broadside if some of these "fourth division pros" like Carey and Bradley are sold on in January.

Whether Blisset will come good, who knows, I'm not overwhelmed by the signing but can he be another Bogle whose plied his trade in non league for a few years and allegedly is attracting a lot of interest ? Who knows, the least we can do is to back the player.

The players that Derek has brought in the time he's been here, most of which were unknown to the great and the good on ATD, have by and large been successes, so I'll go along with the homework that Derek's obviously done on this and every other player.
As to the budget for further signings in January, financially it would appear we're in a better place than the previous 2 seasons, so the jury's out on that one until we see what business is done.

Now Gaffer, i did not mention Carey who i think is a cut above fourth division level, however Blisset is a shocking no ambition joke signing by the Brent Regime i feel truly sorry for Adams and the fans who are expected to pay twenty two quid to watch players of blissets standard at homepark, where's the money from Nelson and the cuptie going?

DEREK ADAMS wants to make 'a few' additions to his table-topping Plymouth Argyle squad during the January transfer window.

But he does not expect to receive any of the money the Pilgrims will make from their lucrative FA Cup third round tie away to Liverpool next month to bolster his personnel.

Argyle are set to pick up around £500,000 in their share of the gate receipts and the broadcast fee for their BT Sport-televised visit to Liverpool on Sunday, January 8.

Adams told Herald Sport: "I think it's very important for the club. It obviously helps a great deal with the cashflow.

"There is a new grandstand to be built and it's something that can help them."

Adams, however, is not banking on getting any of the FA Cup cash windfall to spend on strengthening his squad.

He said: "I have already been given my budget for the season and I know what I have got to spend."

This 'financially better place' with the jury out on that one , seems DA has a different story to tell.....

Remember it? It's the one where you sanctimoniously claimed the moral high ground, boasting of your refusal to mock on the grounds of disability, looks, lifestyle or job then made a jibe about me, PatDunne and ss68 'not making it up the career ladder'. Doesn't this make you a massive hypocrite and a pretty nasty piece of work? Isn't it also pretty cowardly to have run away from this despite the fact that you responded to other points further down the thread?
Charley, while i accept most posters dont like name calling which i agree is childish, if ever anyone on any forum is a total utter Twat its tigertony. Best ignored if possible.

Thanks ss68 - Happy New Year to you. In response to charleymouse above I apologise for comments that I would not normally make. I am, by nature, a very ''equality and diversity'' person who has a day job amongst the most diverse people you could ever wish to meet. I absolutely love being around them and helping them.
Back to footy though. I feel that no matter what our views are of JB or others the next month is the make or break time for JB. There are many fans, bit like me, who can see cracks in the finances and are scratching our head but are more interested in the league table and FA Cup. If this coming month ends up like last year then I think many more fans, including me, will start becoming far more vocal in their opinion of JB. We shall see? No matter the reasons for signing I will welcome all new players and give them the support they need. 3 points today please would help the cause.
