Extra Time: Adams Out

Extra Time: Adams Out

Derek Adams is no longer the right man to manage Plymouth Argyle. There, I’ve said it. My colours are nailed to the mast. If we reach the end of the season and have debates about how we felt about the management situation throughout the year, let it be known that, at...
Extra Time: The Curious Case of Mr Adams

Extra Time: The Curious Case of Mr Adams

It’s no secret that Plymouth Argyle’s start to the 2018-19 season has been a complete travesty. This season’s failures have mirrored those from the start last term, with the only real difference being that, this time last year, Argyle did at the very least have one...
Extra Time: The Mental Game

Extra Time: The Mental Game

It all feels so familiar, doesn’t it? Many of us were optimistic a month ago when the season got underway, believing Argyle may well be able to build on a successful 7th place finish last term. But, suddenly, it’s September and the Greens are rooted to the bottom of...

The Opposition View: Portsmouth

1. Hi and thanks for talking to us? How long have you been supporting Pompey and what got you into it? My whole family is from Gosport and my dad took me along when I was a kid. I cannot remember exactly how old I was, maybe 6. However, I’m 31 now so it’s been a...

The Opposition View: Coventry

1. Hi and thanks for talking to us.  First of all, can I ask how long you’ve been supporting Coventry and how did you get into it? It’s about 20 years now. My family moved into the Midlands from Hertfordshire when I was about seven and getting into football. My dad...
Extra Time: A Week Is A Long Time

Extra Time: A Week Is A Long Time

It’s an old cliché to say that a week is a long time in football. But, as any long-term readers of this column will be all too aware, an old cliché is absolutely not something I’m going to shy away from. Although, my goodness, you’d do very well to find a seven-day...

With our thanks to our Southend contributor, James Cambridge…   Southend Fan: James Cambridge 1) Hi and thanks for talking to us. First of all how did you get into supporting Southend? I’ve been supporting Southend for as long as I can remember and...
Extra-Time: Does It Matter?

Extra-Time: Does It Matter?

Well, football is back, Argyle have lost, and I’m here to discuss whether any of this really matters at all. But whilst this could go down the route of considering whether football as a whole is worth caring about in the current global political climate, fear not....
Release or Retain?

Release or Retain?

Robert te Loeke Nick: ‘With Michael Cooper already announced as a provisional third choice keeper, it seems unlikely that RTL will last the summer.’ Sam: ‘His performances in the two games he played were patchy to say the least. Coupled with his injury problems, his...
Final Whistle: Three’s a Crowd

Final Whistle: Three’s a Crowd

Fantastic. Mesmerizing. Rampant. All words to describe Plymouth Argyle as they thundered to a 4-0 win over Southend at Home Park for what was their highest win of the season so far. The three points also coupled with a return to the League One play-off positions at...

Extra Time: Irresistible Mania

Knowing your audience. It’s a key skill when writing about just about anything, I’m told. I completely agree – it’s why I know when you click through to Argyle Life you’re hoping to see a deeply considered analytical piece about all things Argyle and not, as I seem to...
Extra Time: In The Script

Extra Time: In The Script

Sporting media does love a fairy-tale story. Leicester City’s against-all-odds Premier League title win two years ago was lapped up worldwide, and events such as Greece’s European Championships triumph, Ronnie Radford’s famous goal for Hereford United (you know the...
Extra Time: Small Gamechangers

Extra Time: Small Gamechangers

Football. It’s a funny old game, as they say. There are an almost innumerable amount of variables that can influence the outcome of a match, and the only thing we’re all really unanimously agreed on is that goals change games, whenever they are scored. As a child,...
Extra Time: Greens Going Forward

Extra Time: Greens Going Forward

Argyle are on some run. It’s now just one defeat in the last 12 League One games, and Saturday’s encounter against Shrewsbury Town was possibly the pick of the lot, with Argyle dispatching of a side in the automatic promotion places for the second week in succession....

The Opposition View: Shrewsbury

With our thanks to Shrewsbury fan Alex Lewis. Follow @Salopsbluearmy  for more. How did you get into supporting Shrewsbury? My dad was a steward at the old Gay Meadow so I managed to get to a few games when young and just fell in love with the club. It was interesting...
Extra Time: Dare to Dream

Extra Time: Dare to Dream

When Argyle lost against AFC Wimbledon in the League Two play-off final back in 2016, it’s fair to say supporting this football club wasn’t the most enjoyable experience. My coping mechanism at the time was to look towards the successes of other clubs who had fallen...

The Opposition View: Blackburn Rovers

With our thanks to Daniel from roverschat.com! First of all, how did you get into supporting Blackburn? I got into supporting Rovers, basically, through going to games with family. Back then, we was a secure Premier League side, competing with sides like (especially...
