Its only a game folks. If we go down, then sobeit. Might do us good. We got promoted too early, so could not consolidate.

An Erald comment today, kinda explains why Argo will probably always we shit.

Feck me - how long does Severnjan think we should spend in the bottom division. Was seven years really not enough for them.

A sensible idea and one you would like to hope Hallett takes note of.

Or he happily wanted 'what's his face' to front this fiasco. Hallet has had several chances to stamp his authority but remained as silent Si. He could've got rid of DA before Christmas when we were struggling. He could've backed DA in the January window. He could've backed DA in retaining key players instead of the age old 'wait to see what the budget is'. All he has ever done is backed a failing manager with feck all funding, or if as suggested by a tiny minority funding has been available but DA has refused to spend it, well same fekn same.

FWIIW, the corporate chap might be ok, assuming he isn't charging for his services at 20-40% as one or two others appear to be.

The fine dining in the inadequate Platinum Mankover will be in stark contrast to watching another Adams assembled squad of hapless lower league rejects struggling again next season in L1/L2.

Lovely stuff, oooh ahh! geek

Silent Si, the twice a year guy, how much do we owe him now for making the club totaly shite and bound for Brents Basement league next season?

This is going right down to the wire and the final game against Scunny, not a comfortable situation at all.

Last night's results were not good for Argyle.

If there was ever a time for the Argyle team to rise to an occasion, then Accrington away is that time.

I will be glad when this season is over, it has been an absolute mare.

In our own hands confirmed though after last night. I think one win will see us ok but considering both Accrington and Scunthorpe have everything to play for it will be tough

Southend are away to Rochdale then at home to Sunderland

AFC have got Wycombe at home then Bradford away.

Scunny have Bradford at home then visit Argyle.



What will be, will be.

IT is about the right time for me to send my letter talking about what’s going on at Argyle. I am writing just after Easter though, when almost nothing matters other than what is going on at first-team level.

Despite the disappointment of this season - and, let us be clear, whatever the results over the next couple of weeks, this will have been a disappointing season - our fans have continued to come to games, not just at Home Park, but also away, in great numbers. I thank you all for that. The commitment and passion of our supporters is something that gives me encouragement when results don’t go our way.

There is just one other issue I would like to address in this letter, which is that of whether our club would have been better off if the Board had chosen to finance a stronger first-team squad, instead of a new Grandstand.

There are two important points to be made.

The first is that spending on the first team at anything like the scale of the investment in the Grandstand was not an option for the Board to consider. The substantial commitment that my wife Jane and I were prepared to make was only for investment in assets that would support Argyle over many seasons, not just through the life of a few player contracts.

The second is that the Board has indeed continued to finance the first-team squad. The club will operate at a loss this season, and that loss will be financed by shareholders. That is not consistent with the Board’s long-term goal for our club.

The Board has been very clear, for a number of years, that we want Argyle to be financially sustainable, in the absence of owners who are prepared to fund deficits year after year.

That is where the Grandstand comes in. It will enhance the experience of present fans; attract new ones; and the associated facilities will generate revenue for decades. Those recurring revenues will support annual spending on the first team. I will explain further in a month or two, when we present more detail about the club’s finances.

We still have our fate in our own hands, but the danger of relegation from League 1 is obviously great. I am sure most fans feel as I do - nervous; slightly nauseous; and tired as result of waking up at night dreaming of a winning goal in the next game.

I ask you all to put aside our differences of opinion and rally round the team for the last two games.

I will be watching the next match on iFollow, but will make a quick trip to Devon to be at the last game of the season.

I hope it won’t be a critical one, but do hope I will see you there.

Any good business revolves around timing - get it wrong and the money gets out of control. Going down will be catastrophic timing and was completely controlled by the men with the purse strings - all of their own making I’m afraid.

You were saying it from Day 1 Reg and you were completely correct
I was saying give the fella a year from November 1st but he has been a major disappointment to me. No doubt it my mind that him and Bent are cooking up something
This crap about corporate income going back into the playing squad is just utter bollax

Can't argue with that.

This season has been dire from the kick-off, even though it looked like the team were pulling away slowly a few weeks ago. Bang, crash and they are back in the shit again with a capital S.

Should they lose at Accrington and the other three main relegation threatened sides win, thus dropping into the bottom four, then confidence and moral for the Scunny game could be shot to pieces They would go into that game in 22nd and on 47 points. The only way of survival would be by beating Scunny and AFC lose on the final day, and we all know what the outcome will probably be.

Gee, it is a nightmare looking at the table now, especially with AFC getting that bloody draw and point at Lootown.

We simply have to win both games, a draw at Accrington isn't going to be enough.
Southend may well defeat Rochdale. Should afc win then its deep crisis

If they are to win those two games, they will need to step up to the plate.

Argyle will be as good as down should they fail to beat Accrington and those other three win.

We know we can't beat Accy as the 'team' will completely fail to turn up as usual.  No point thinking otherwise.  We're completely reliant on other results.  But the other teams around us have fight in them and are likely to get wins.  No, Argo will be relegated and it will be thoroughly deserved.
