Destiny not in Argyle’s own hands after loss to Exeter.

Today’s 1 – 0 loss to local Devon rivals Exeter City mean that Argyle’s destiny is not in their own hands. If Walsall draw or win their final game of the season, Argyle are relegated; and/or Dagenham & Redbridge win their final game of the season, Argyle are relegated, it’s that simple. Plymouth do have a game in hand over all the other teams in the relegation battle but today’s game was crucial to Plymouth’s survival bid, even if Argyle can win their final two games, survival is unlikely. I can not tell you how much it saddens me to say that having supported my home town club since five years of age. I have no complaints about the result today; Exeter City was the better side and deserved the win. I do wonder what relegation will bring for Argyle; being a League 2 side will certainly dilute the club’s value and might scupper any potential buy out and the club may not be around to play in League 2. The club is in the hands of the creditors right now, if they don’t agree to take less than one pence per pound owed, the club is effectively gone as it seems that preferred buyer James Brent isn’t willing to pay the total debt of the club to take ownership.

In other football news, I am going to utter a phrase I thought I never would say, here it comes; c’mon Chelsea! If Chelsea beat Tottenham Hotspur (currently 1 – 1 at half time), and Liverpool beat Newcastle tomorrow, the Reds will move into fifth place in the league which means Europa cup football next season if Liverpool can maintain that advantage until the end of the season.
