Doncasters failure was simply because they tried to walk the ball into the net.

PRIOR to Sonny Bradley, the last time Plymouth Argyle had a centre-back who was so potent at scoring goals was Graham Coughlan.

So it was entirely appropriate that Coughlan saw Bradley net for the seventh time this season as he secured a vital 1-0 victory over the League Two leaders.

Coughlan, now the assistant manager to Phil Brown at League One outfit Southend United, sat among the travelling Green Army at the Keepmoat Stadium.

He was Argyle's top scorer with 11 goals when Paul Sturrock's Pilgrims were promoted as champions of the fourth division of English football in 2001/02.

Bradley might not reach that total this term, although there is still time, but his contribution has already clinched a lot of very valuable points.

Great game from McCormick, who won't be going anywhere for obvious reasons, and a great game from Bradley, who will be going somewhere if he is a free agent in the Summer. I can now see why Carey is still where he is, very lightweight and easily knocked off his game, but a dead ball merchant. The goal was reminiscent of Wotton/Coughlan. I suspect League 1 is little better than League 2 and see little reason why Adams' dreadful unwatchable game plan wouldn't work at the next level if he can keep the spine and actually add a couple of players that can play the game without the ball bobbling off them into touch.

I was then forced to sit through another 90 minutes of Brit trash with the England team. Like watching paint dry twice in one day until a REAL footballer came on in the shape of Vardy. Where have all the entertainers gone ? Tippy tappy, pointless nutmegging going nowhere doesn't do it for me.

The Barbican was packed full of mothers affraid

The resident bean grower becomes an expert on Carey on the basis of two backs to the wall televised games. Nothing like exhaustive research and observation to form a valid opinion.

with all due respect the team played shit yet won, which is the important aspect of any game at the end of the day. Lets not try re writing history here on the performance side of it. McCormick saved us and we took advantage.


Keeping a clean sheet against a top of the league team who have scored 75 goals this season is not rewriting history, it's a stone cold fact.

We're dogged and disciplined. And we've got Carey. That's good enough in this league.

It hasn't been pretty all season. But just like yesterday, there have been numerous games this season whereby on balance of play we've been 2nd best, and won.

Substance over style innit. And a necessary 'evil' to get out of this league.

Grimsby view on the game.

Watching the game on TV. Donny the better side so far but god do they try and manipulate the ref. Constant diving. Must come from Darren Ferguson I guess?

FT Doncaster 0-1 Plymouth, Plymouth now only 3 pts behind Donny in the race for top spot.
Saturdays game against us has now become a little more important for them.

Which is why we need a full strength team out. With a formation they are comfortable with. Not only do we owe it to our own fans, but to anyone else in the promotion race.

Three games actually. Some of us learn quicker than others. And it was the consensus of 2 season ticket holding family and friends along with three other regulars this season. Of course, the goons across the road would say that fans have no right at all to an opinion on anything with a football if they haven't managed at professional level and resonate like the chimes of Guy Branston, who is obviously a cut above most folk. But then that's the great washed for you... give them some soap and they're pointing fingers at unkempt hair. I do apologise for deigning to offer a well held view.  flower

I'm great at growing food too. Here all Summer, avoiding the chemical laden vitamin free tosh available in a supermarket near you. Do you have your own trolley with one of those dud pound coins Skinny ? flower

Absolutely not, particularly in this league. I can't see that a hard-earned whilst not attractive 1-0 win against a side that's top, is worse than a wonderful free-flowing game resulting in a 4-3 defeat. One result earns 3 points, the other, none. No-brainer really.

Anyway, Argyle are capable of playing attractive football, but the name of the game is results, and over 20 wins shows that they're doing something right.

I did state that the result is of primary importance, so your 4-3 defeat scenario is bollocks.
