Thought the Blues were quite good going forward against Leicester,James is one to look out for. Think we may get a draw out of this one.

2-2

Whitaker, Cundle

Very tough one under current circumstances. Fans really will need to be the 12th man.

Argo 1-1 Brum (Azaz)

After the shanagans of the last week I fancy us I really do Birmingham ain’t all that plus we should have beaten up at the place in fact in my opinion we were robbed up there
Hopefully the players stick together and approach the game professionally and if nothing has changed and what with our home form as well with backing of the fans at a noisey home park will tip it in our favour ….Home win 3-1

Probably the easiest home win we've ever had at this level, I'll be shocked if brum even get out of their own half. Doubt I'll bother going, warm fire, Shrek boxset ... they just don't make Christmases like this anymore.

Probably one of the poorest performances of the season, but you can never write this side off. We started slowly, gift wrapped the second goal and all was doom and gloom, but up popped Edwards and we went in half time still in it.

The sending off looked harsh, but haven't seen a replay, although Dembele should have been off in the first for a kick on Houghton. How officials miss these things I just don't know. Going 3 -1 down (Stansfield looked a yard offside) looked like game over, but back we came again and Whittaker's equaliser was a quality goal, and we could have sneaked a winner, Houghton's effort cleared off the line, and Issaka just wide at the end.

Birmingham made it difficult by packing the midfield and Azaz and Cundle couldn't get a kick, but that changed with the sending off. Difficult to pick a man of the match, no-one was really on their game, Whittaker looked the most threatening and his goal was quality.

Battling point from a poor performance, and the reaction of the players at the end spoke volumes of the togetherness of the squad.

normally i wouldnt be happy with a point at home against a team that was down to 10 men for most of the second half but all things considered and the fact we came back from 3-1 down to draw 3-3 im happy with that point. The performance was poor we werent at the races for alot of that game  we desperately need another striker Im sorry but Ben Waine is not good enough up front in this league. Whenever he got the ball he was looking to lay someone off who wasnt there. I think when the new boss comes he will either convert him into an attacking midfielder or send him out on loan to get game time and hopefully bulk up and score goals cause he wont be budging hardie or bundu out of the team nor any new striker i would even have Issaka higher in the pecking order than him atm.

The defending as a team was poor especially for the first and third goals we also need another defender and this formation being binned again when the new boss comes im sure he will play his way  overtime.  Bringing on the pace helped alot as did Randall.


What planet was Jay Stansfield living on when he decided to taunt the argyle fans in front of the devonport end with that once a red always a red shirt under his Birmingham jersey that he lifted to show the fans and then complain when that backfired on him badly and his teammates when the missiles from the crowd where thrown at them and not only that he got himself booked for inciting the crowd by doing it. it was childish and pathetic from him especially when his dad was a Janner cant believe he thought that was a good idea and Wayne Rooney allowed it knowing the backlash he got for doing this at everton when he was first coming onto the scene who then went red a few months later. Want to show your loyalty to a club you left twice do so in a way that doesnt get your mates hit with bottles.

overall happy with the point not the performance we should be beating teams like Birmingham at home especially when they where down to ten men. The new boss and the January transfer market cant come soon enough.

We were beyond crap for much the first half. At 2-0 down Joe's goal to bring it back to 2-1 seemed to lift us a bit. Then the Brum dismissal just after the break allowed us back into it properly but then to go 3-1 down in the manner we did against 10 men at home was totally piss poor and it really did look like game over. Loads around me got up and headed for the exit! But Argo battled and battled culminating in Ben Waine making it 2-3 and then Morgan's (easily Argo's best player today) excellent goal to make it 3-3. Argo could/should have nicked it right at the death again but wasn't to be this time! Jay Stansfield is a bit of a knob and all with the t-shirt incident after scoring but doesn't take away that he is a really good player. Wish we had him on loan. And we really do need a manager ASAP!

HP is certainly the place for action this season and more of the same today-more stretchering offs and sending offs, contentious decisions, some quality finishes and two teams who can't defend to save their lives. Birmingham must be kicking themselves for letting Argyle back into the game with a defensive disaster because truthfully the match was theirs for the taking at that point but that and the sending off were really the turning points even though they restored their two goal lead when Argyle were suckered on the break again against a 10 man team. Good job we've got Morgan-he seemed to move into a more central position towards the end and the guy can finish as Brum found to their cost, Argyle could have won it but it was really a relief to get a point in the end.

Not much mention of Schumacher around the bazaars but a new manager needs to be appointed asap to enable assessments to be made prior to the window. Love to see a really nasty ball winning type in midfield to augment those footballing sorts in there at the moment and a pacy defender a la Doumbe-there is a need for a striker as well but Argyle can score goals anyway and if a bit more solidity could be added then it could be a pretty good side.

Agree with that, the defence has become a bit of a shambles.
Waine is a conundrum, I thought he had his best game, when we play him in with the right through balls he looked on it, trouble is we don’t pass to his strengths.
However he’s probably L1 at best at the moment, provided we could get a replacement he should go out on loan, maybe to Exeter.
