Plymouth win for the first time in seven games.

On this saturday afternoon; Plymouth Argyle have beaten Colchester 2 – 1 at Home Park; breaking the run of six games without a win. The irony is that the scoreline was 2 – 1; but Plymouth players scored all the goals. It was Stephane Zubar that found himself on the scoresheet for the wrong reasons again, I believe this is his second or third time now. New Zealand international Rory Fallon opened the scoring with a close range effort in the 8th minute from Bondz N’Gala cross. Then five minutes before half time, Zubar completely mistimed his clearance heading into his own net. Chris Clark got himself sent off in the 58th minute which would have normallly meant the beginning of the end for Argyle but for a change; the sending off pushed Argyle on. Yannick Bolasie scored the winning goal in the 74th minute from the penalty spot after Joe Mason was fouled in the 18 yard box. Interestingly as I suggested in a previous blog entry; Romain Larrieu was given a chance between the sticks after being locked out by David Button for some time and it resulted in a win. It’s three points which will certainly help with the relegation fight; now only five points away from Swindon in 20th place. I still find it hard to believe that there is light at the end of the tunnel; administration is impending; no money to pay players and seemingly no interest in buying the club.

    About time they broke the jinx. If they can win a few more on the spin, they might actually save themselves from relegation, making them a better prospect for someone to come in and save the club.

  • Tell me about it; hopefully they can make it to the safety but the omens don’t look good!

    How is it with that Japanese guy?? If he hasn’t really paid any money for his share in the club, isn’t the former owner entitled to take it back and try to do something to restore the team to a semblance of sanity??

  • Kagami paid a lump sum for a percentage of shares up front but hasn’t paid anything in since, lots of promises; but never delivered; I think he is willing to just let the club die or wait for a buyer and take the money for his shares in the club, Kagami, Synan, Todd and Gardner are the worse thing to happen to the club; even worse than Dan McCauley; that’s really saying something!
