AS a thank-you to the Green Army travelling on the official supporters’ coach for Saturday’s epic journey to Carlisle United, Argyle manager Ryan Lowe has paid for them all to have breakfast baps.

The gaffer stepped in after hearing the official coach not only faces the longest trip of the season, which amounts to almost 400 miles each way, but major repair work on the M6 means the departure time has been moved forward to a bleary-eyed 4am.

The Green Army have been magnificent all season and Ryan was delighted to offer this gesture of thanks for their support to him and the players, as we seek three more valuable points in Sky Bet League Two.

“When I go and support my team, it’s only ten minutes up the road,” he said. “In terms of them travelling that far, it’s brilliant. We’re appreciative of what they do and there will be a lot more coming in their cars, so fair play.”

As well as those travelling on the coach, the immense gratitude of everyone at Home Park goes to all supporters making the trip to Carlisle. Have a safe journey and please be mindful of the repair work on the M6 and the impact that could have on your travelling time.

Tbh the club should have done the decent thing anyway and included breakie in the price for this long old poke not sure how much it is but it’s gotta be close to £60 with match ticket so a bacon roll is F#%K all in the scheme of things it’s gotta be less £1 each anyway

Clearly he thinks that he doesn't live in Plymouth-unless he supports Elburton Rovers

According to today's WMN Lowe isn't paying for anyone's breakfast. At yesterday's news conference, he just asked if "the Club could sort something out" for travelling fans.

The Club will soon have to "sort something out" for the team as well as travelling fans as current travel provider Target Travel is no longer considered a "fit and proper" transport company due to vehicles not being considered serviceable by the licencing authorities and has had their Operators Licence revoked.

So Argyle again find themselves looking for a new first team coach!

Spoke to a mate at the game on Saturday and the breakfast consisted one piece of hard dry bacon in a soggy lukewarm roll, hence the usual queue when they all piled into McDonald's for a breakfast at the services.
Made me think that the £4.60 i paid Avanti West Coast for a sausage muffin on the train up from Euston that morning wasn't such a bum deal after all. The return fare from Euston to Carlisle plus the cost of the muffin was still considerably less than the £41 the Target Travel charabanc was charging sarcasm

of course your mate wasnt expecting argyle to push the boat out and actually give fans a half decent breakfast id he lol brent might be gone but the ethos of not spending money still remains in some areas of the club.
