If Argo were going up they would have won last night, Brents, decision to cash in on Purrington, on deadline day will come back to haunt the fans if not the owner, a fourth place finish is my prediction.

Important how they react to last night and also important will be the length of time Bradley is out, and, to a lesser extent, Sarcevic. A defeat at Hartlepool would certainly set the teeth on edge. A win and the avivas will need a change of underwear again.

9 wins needed I reckon.

Hamstrings can take an age to heal. He's become a bit of a talisman of late and will be sorely missed.

We've had it.  Brent sold a key player and now the inevitable injuries to key players are piling up.  Last night was clearly the start of a catastrophic run of terrible results.  We're dropping like a stone and looking at a lower play-off place finish at best.  We'll still be fourth division shit next season.

Season is over.

Come on Freathy, "dropping like a stone" like from second to second, talking bollocks again old fruit, yes I was there last night and was completely gutted just like the other eight thousand there, as far as I'm concerned we threw the game away, you might as well use the same argument for Doncaster, who drew with Newport last weekend and lost to a rival promotion team last night. Would be the first to agree that promotion is not nailed on but we still have a good chance, and as you would surely agree, I'm sure despite the fact we have a pathetic excuse for an owner.

I still believe that Argyle will take second place, it will be a harder task with the two injuries, but now is the time to dig in and grind out the wins and the points needed.

It was so unfortunate to lose two players last night.

The team played without a manger last night, awful from DA last night, he's got away with it lightly in my opinion.

Not quite sure what Adams has got away with. For him to take the team to 2nd in the league on the meagre budget provided by Brent deserves praise I would have thought.

After last seasons play off final surrender, Argo fans should be concerned about the manager/ players being able to handle the pressure of the run in, another season playing Northern village teams is to fookin desperate to contemplate.

It's how we bounce, or limp back that counts.

I don't think we've quite thrown it away yet. Yet!

We'll see.

For most of the second half we could see what was coming, defending deeper and deeper, why? Massey, he scared the living day lights out of the defence. Clearly we needed to address this issue, perhaps putting our fastest player on him and make the game ten v ten. No we didn't do a thing differently defensive wise, In fact we gave him more room. It was so inevitable and predictable.

Agreed it does, I'm commenting on last nights game in isolation. DA seems comfortable in changing things offensively, defensively he struggles. Last night was a good example of this.

Absolutely no need for any panic yet.....if we had held on for a few more minutes it would have been a superb rear guard action and us sitting equal top with a game in hand......Now IF we are discusiing the same after 3 more games the shit may well be about to hit the fan.
Suspect Taylor and Kennedy providing thay stay fit will fire us up auto

I think 9 is right, to be nailed on for automatic promotion.

Watching highlights, Kennedy was very unlucky to hit the post at 2-1 and another night Bulvitis' fluke cannons in off the post, rather than running along the goalmouth. Not excusing what sounded like a capitulation in the last half hour but I think we'll make it this time. A Hartlepool loss wouldn't look good for momentum though.

i like too think we will finally do it this year while adding silverware as a bonus on top but if we cant shake off this mentality of bottling it when it matters and failing to grab oppotunities it will come back to haunt us like the last two seasons. The Leyton Orient game was proof we have a long way to go.

Look it was a disappointing result no arguments with that, but putting things into perspective, we were playing some pretty good stuff in the first half with maybe a tad too much passing around rather than having a pop at goal, in the second half I noticed we were shooting more and with a bit of luck could have gone 3-1 up.
I think this is one of those games where the ref did cost us, our midfield was the weaker when Saracevic went off, but that defender should have seen red for raking Antoni's Achilles, and how that other prick stayed on after shoving that ball boy is anyone's guess.
Bradley was probably the biggest miss.
We still should have dealt with those wingers especially Massey but not time for doom and gloom, this team is better than 12 months ago and I'm feeling more confident about promotion.
These results happen, no doubt Donny expected to beat Newport, Pompey expected to beat Exeter, Luton losing at home to Cheltenham, it happens, now we move on

Had those two players not been injured, Argyle would have gone on to win the match comfortable I feel. Sadly, Orient and their ''hack them down at all costs'' play prevented Argyle from gaining a much needed three points.

An OK performance and a win tomorrow will blow away the cobwebs of Tuesday night. We have now entered the best part of the season, the business end, and it will be a roller-coaster ride from here on.

I also think nine wins will do it, but maximum points need to be taken from the remaining home games if possible.

Nine wins out of sixteen really is a massive ask for this weakened, injury ravaged team. It's not realistic at all.

Six points from four games since the Purrington sell off, the slump has already started, nobody in the Boardroom at the Brentihad wants promotion they are making plenty of dosh in the Basement.
