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

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....

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...
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...

Extra Time: The Unchangeables

Back in January 2014, Australian cricket fans were cock-a-hoop as their side romped to a 5-0 Ashes victory. That series win was remarkable for a variety of reasons, but the one relevant to this piece is the fact that the Aussies used the same team in all five test...

Extra Time: One of Those Years

I’m not here exclusively to put a downer on proceedings – honest – but my overriding feeling after yesterday’s act of snatching a draw from the jaws of victory is that this season could be one we look back on in years to come with terror and anguish. A sort of “laugh...

Extra Time: Defining A Season

It was particularly galling to call Saturday’s early December encounter with Gillingham a relegation six-pointer, particularly as the season has yet to reach the halfway mark. But, with Argyle’s opponents just three points ahead of them in the league heading into the...
Extra Time: The Cup Conundrum

Extra Time: The Cup Conundrum

The vast majority of us will remember the scenes after the FA Cup second round replay win against Newport County last season. The 1-0 victory, sealed with a Graham Carey penalty deep into extra time, did of course land Argyle their unforgettable third round tie...

Extra Time: Fine Margins

I appreciate this will come as good news to very few people other than myself, but with the UK Championship on the horizon, it’s not long before snooker is back on our TV screens again through the BBC. That means we get another week of John Virgo gloriously telling us...

Extra Time: Positive Thinking

Why do Plymouth Argyle make themselves so difficult to write about? One moment, we’re experiencing the hilarious farce that was the 4-0 defeat by Oxford United, the next, we have the best performance of the season by far as Northampton Town were put to the sword in...
Extra Time: Entertainment Value

Extra Time: Entertainment Value

Well, here we are at the relaunch of Argyle Life, and what a joyful first game we all have to write about. Argyle got their sixth red card of the season and shipped four unanswered goals against Oxford United as the recent unbeaten run came to the abruptest of ends....
