The weekend roundup!

Plymouth Argyle won their first league fixture under caretaker manager Tim Breaker beating Sheffield United 0 – 1 at Bramall Lane. It seems that the fallout from Ian Holloway leaving is limited to the fans being disappointed and angry; the players did Argyle proud. Peter Halmosi scored the only goal of the game sidefooting Sylvan Ebanks-Blake cross from the left flank. It was a rather fortuitous goal as Halmosi mishit the ball; which wrong footed the Sheffield keeper. Plymouth were well worth the three points with Ebanks-Blake later hitting the crossbar from 30 yards out. The Argyle defence closed down the home attack to restrict their shooting opportunities and Sheffield didn’t really get a genuine goal scoring opportunity all game! Plymouth have now moved up to 4th in the league over Wolves and Bristol City on goal difference! Plymouth host 2nd placed West Brom on Wednesday evening; whatever happens Argyle can’t move up any further this Wednesday but it would be good to consolidate our 4th place and maybe move within one point of Charlton. More good news for the Argyle faithful; it’s looking almost certain that Paul Sturrock will be making his return to Home Park as manager. The BBC believes that the Scot is ready to hand in his resignation at Swindon to rejoin The Pilgrims and a compensation package is being arranged. With a little luck he could be in place for the game against Scunthorpe on Saturday at Home Park. I think that Sturrock will get a warm welcome from the Home Park faithful as he was the architect of Plymouth’s meteoric rise through the divisions.

Liverpool also won their away tie at St. James Park being Newcastle United 0 – 3. Liverpool dominated the game claiming more than 60% of the possession; looking more like the home team than Newcastle ever did. Steven Gerrard unleashed an unstoppable rocket of a shot from 25 yards out in the 28th minute to open the scoring. Fernando Torres hit the post just before the half time break, Dirk Kuyt did double the lead shortly after the half time break bundling in Gerrard’s inswinging corner from close range. Gerrard was involved in the third goal as well providing the pass for Ryan Babel’s shot from 12 yards out. Gerrard’s England form maybe a little suspect; but his form for his club is excellent! Liverpool are still hovering in 5th in the league after Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea all won this weekend; but shock of the weekend was Manchester United losing to Bolton at the Reebok!

I didn’t work on Friday so I had a quiet night in; I did think about checking out JFK’s as Erin had family commitments that day, but elected not to bother in the end as I doubt that anything has improved, I just stayed home and ending up falling asleep quite early. Saturday I was working again; still only had one subwoofer unit; so the kickdrum was almost non existent but I don’t think anyone really noticed, there was a decent backline to cover up the lack of low end coming from the PA. Now what is amazing is that I actually managed to get a decent sound at all as I was guessing for most of the night as my ears weren’t in the best shape on the night. I was having problems hearing much of the high end sound, but all the bands commented on how good the sound was and none of the crowd complained so I guess it must has passed! Sunday was a great day; myself and Erin spent the whole day together (as together as you can get being on opposites sides of the Atlantic). It was nice to have a relaxing day of doing nothing with the woman I love, it’s very difficult for myself and Erin to spend time together as we are both very busy people especially with me working as much as I can to get the money together to go to the US in April of next year!
