Argyle avoid the drop while Liverpool suffer 12th home defeat!

Plymouth Argyle will remain a football league club next season after securing a 1 – 1 draw against Oxford United at Home Park, The Pilgrims are now seven points above the drop zone with a maximum of six points available for the remainder of the season! What an amazing turnaround, starting the season in administration; claiming only one point from nine games before Argyle captain Carl Fletcher took over as caretaker manager, later becoming full time manager. To slowly build up the club to be able to compete in the league, scoring regular points to keep pace with fellow strugglers, which has led to a slow and steady climb out of the relegation zone, amazing spirit from the fans, staff and players, thanks to James Brent’s sustainable view of the future!

In the game itself, Argyle got off to a great start; Robbie Williams opening the scoring from a 20 yard free kick in the second minute of the game while Luke Young saw his shot impressively saved. The visitors leveled the scores in the 36th minute, Asa Hall unleashing an unstoppable 30 yard rocket while Adam Chapman hit the post from a free-kick. Not the greatest Argyle performance you’ll ever see but it got the job done and football league football has been secured next season!

I’m hoping that with the pressure taken off; Argyle will be able to win the last two fixtures to finish the season on a high and hopefully take that form into next season to spearhead, what will hopefully be a promotion charge, after two successive relegation and just avoiding another, competing for promotion will be a massive boost for everyone involved with the club!

Meanwhile Liverpool’s dismal home form continued being beaten 0 – 1 by West Bromwich Albion this afternoon. Another display of wasteful play by the Reds, 28 shots and not one of them found the back of the net, West Brom only had nine shots and one managed to find the back of the net! I really don’t know what to say about Liverpool’s home form, five wins from 17 home fixtures is piss poor for club of the stature of Liverpool Football Club! Even if the Reds do win the FA Cup to go with their Carling Cup victory, it will still go down as a poor season, currently eighth in the league with six clubs snapping at their heals for that position! I had high hopes this season but it seems that despite all John W Henry’s money that has been spent, the Reds seem to be no further on!
