Argyle without Taylor are impossible to replicate. The fantastic performances of Ryan Taylor are self-evidently impossible to fully replicate for Argyle as the big striker remains out injured. The Northampton and Rochdale games both taught us this lesson: but in...

Lessons Learned: Charlton Athletic.

Nobody is infallible. Nobody can deny that Derek Adams managerial stock is sky high at the moment. He has taken Argyle to a position where they could be able to get promoted to the Championship this season with a budget that is surely amongst the lowest in the league....
