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...

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...

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...
Extra Time: Shades of Sheridan

Extra Time: Shades of Sheridan

Argyle won 2-1 at the weekend against Oldham Athletic, a team mainly synonymous with Derek Adams predecessor, for members of the Green Army at least. It isn’t hard to see why – John Sheridan played for the Latics for six years, and has had three permanent spells in...

Extra Time: Lucky League Leaders?

Extra Time: Lucky League Leaders?

Argyle were, for once, involved in a game rich in entertainment when league leaders Wigan Athletic came to town at the weekend. And, in winning it, Argyle’s table-topping opponents pulled off a feat we have been so used to seeing from the Greens themselves over the...
Final Whistle: January Merry-Go-Round

Final Whistle: January Merry-Go-Round

It’s well and truly been a mixed seven days for the Plymouth Argyle Football Club with the January Transfer Window now open and dealings in full flow. Following a comfortable 3-0 win over a very much lacklustre Bury side at the weekend, the Green Army were...

With thanks to Bury fan Hassan Khan for his contribution. Firstly, how did you get into supporting Bury? Firstly by my uncle. He took me to my 1st game at age of 5 against Lincoln, who’s star striker then was Jason ‘he’s got a pineapple on his...
