That old knack!

Plymouth Argyle broke their nine game winless streak at league leaders Wolves. Plymouth took the surprise lead after just 39 seconds of play, Paul Gallagher’s spectacular overhead kick from the edge of the 18 yard box caught the home team sleeping. Former Argyle striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake volleyed over the bar in front of an open goal, headed wide and later fired another high over the bar. Wolves were lucky to only lose by one goal really as Argyle could have won by two or three goals if our strikers made better use of their chances. The Pilgrims haul themselves back upto the heady heights of 19th, five points off the drop zone. Let’s hope that this win will give Sturrock’s men the confidence boost they needed to get their first home win of the year against Watford on Tuesday. From what I have read, under fire manager Paul Sturrock picked the perfect team and tactics for the game against Wolves, maybe his wish to not be relegated for the first time is good for Plymouth. But we need a manager that wants to win the league, not avoid relegation or finish mid-table; but does the board have enough ambition?

Liverpool have all but conceded the Premiership title after yesterday’s piss poor performance at the Riverside Stadium. Liverpool lost 2 – 0 against a team that is fighting relegation. Chelsea beat Wigan 2 – 1 at Stamford Bridge to move ahead of Liverpool on goal difference. Manchester United are seven points ahead of Chelsea and Liverpool with a game in hand over both teams. With 11 games remaining, United a definite odds on favourites to take the title again, I doubt they’ll slip up. It’s the Rafa Benitez syndrome again, whenever the Reds play in Europe, their Premiership form suffers because of Benitez’ favouritism towards the Champions League.
