Next Stop: League One

Another Saturday, another matchday, another loss for Plymouth Argyle, seems that Bobby Williamson’s departure hasn’t made a tiny bit of difference. In fact the first goal was literally gifted to Norwich, when Mathias Doumbe bundled the ball into the back of his own net to give the Canaries the lead after just 20 minutes, and that lead was doubled in the 37th minute when Dean Ashton volleyed the ball into the back of Romain Larrieu’s net completing a flowing 16 pass move, which the Argyle players never looked like stopping. This simply isn’t good enough, conceding goals in one thing, but own goals shouldn’t even be in the equation. OK I can accept that the timing of Williamsons departure was mistimed by the board, they should have gotten rid of him immediately after the last match, so the team would have had over a week to get used to the decision. Plymouth need to get things sorted very quickly as they have two home games in the next seven days, both games we should win, but in real terms we need to find a decent manager ASAP to try to stabilise the team as things are not looking good right now, sitting in 22 position out of 24 teams, and the gulf to the top of the league is growing all the time. But if Plymouth can win both home games, the Pilgrims could elevate themselves as high as 12th in the table, if other results go our way, but I wont be holding my breath as my faith in Argyle is at an all time low, and I refuse to get my hopes up, just to have them shot down in flames on matchday.

At least things are going reasonably well in the Cricket, thanks to the typical English weather, yes, it’s been raining over The Oval. England made 373 all out in their first innings, but the Australian batsmen finally seem to have hit form and are currently 277-2, so I assume that Australia will try to knock up a big total and try to bowl England out before the end of the test. Australia must win this test to level the series 2 – 2 which will mean that they will retain the Ashes. England only need a draw, so hopefully the rain will pour down like never before over London to give England their first Ashes win in 18 years. Part of me wants England to beat the Aussies in the final test, just so they don’t have any excuses for why they lost, but we have to look at the bigger picture, we have proved that we are as good as Australia in this test series, but it would be great to beat the Aussies convincingly.
