Never Nice, Learning from Losing says Ryan  Empty

ARGYLE woke up to the rare feeling of defeat after going down 3-0 at Colchester United in Sky Bet League Two and one the Greens will have to take on the chin.

First-half goals from Ben Stevenson and a Theo Robinson double effectively killed the game for a strong Colchester outfit, although with the brilliant Green Army roaring them on, manager Ryan Lowe always felt a miracle fightback was possible, perhaps even a repeat of the Liverpool Champions League trick in Istanbul.

While it didn’t transpire for the Pilgrims, Ryan was pleased with the second-half response and the challenge now is get back to winning ways at Salford City on Tuesday night.

“We apologise to the fans, they come in their numbers and it’s never nice losing,” said Ryan. “They were singing all game and I was thinking at one point that this could turn out to be an Istanbul.

“I was believing we could do it and we had a couple of chances to score in the first half. If one of those goes in, it’s a different game but we’re disappointed we haven’t got any points out of Colchester.

“The thing for us now is to get back to the training ground because we’ve got a game on Tuesday. The lads are aware of what’s needed, they’re aware of the mistakes we made and what can’t happen again.

“They were trying to do the right things and if you look at the pitch, it wasn’t great and probably stopped us from doing what we wanted but the pass selection at times [was wrong].

“It was tough to see three goals go in when we’ve been solid and resolute, but it hasn’t happened too many times. I’m not going to criticise my team because they’ve got us to where we are.

“Colchester are a good team but in the same sense, we weren’t anywhere near our levels of expectation. The lads knew that and we got them going at half-time but people will look at the result and know that Colchester are a good team.

“The fans are onside with us and you can’t go and win away from home every time, it just doesn’t happen because the opposition will try to nullify your strengths.”

Maybe a manager should criticise his team sometimes, it's called kicking them up the arse Ryan, Fergie used to reach for a hairdryer, he did quite well with that approach.

Quite simply the players are not good enough. When the out of contract players leave in the summer they will be very lucky indeed to be picked even up by a National League North or South side. In fact the whole set up at Home Park is not geared towards mounting a serious L2 promotion challenge. Even with 10k plus gates we are clearly not offering the going rate for decent L2 standard players or players who can at least stay fit for more than 5 minutes and relying far too heavily on loan players, mostly of very questionable ability. It's going to take a big sea change in the HP set up before Argo ever see L1 football again.

Would agree the current recruitment model, is not geared up to take PAFC up to a higher level and more importantly stay there, interesting situation given SH and the current board have mentioned the Championship.

To be honest though Angers how many of this squad would you want to retain? For me it would be Mayor (he has put the crosses in there but no fecker gets on the end of them) Moore, Jephers, Sarcs, McFaz (if not permanently crocked) and that's about it.

Well, if we had a Manager like Rafa and a player like Stevie G, perhaps we could turn round a 0-3 deficit

But while we are stuck with Ryan and Tony S, we'll struggle to turn round in a revolving door
