Extra Time: The Unchangeables

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...

The Opposition View: Oldham Athletic

With thanks to Chris Stringer, Oldham correspondent for D3D4football.com First of all, how did you get into supporting Oldham? I went to my first game when I was 5 – back in January 2003, away at Tranmere but I really started following the Latics in December 2006 when...
Final Whistle: Positives Amongst Doom & Gloom

Final Whistle: Positives Amongst Doom & Gloom

The manner in which Plymouth Argyle conceded their last minute equaliser against Rotherham was all too typical of the season the South West club have had so far this campaign. Despite the doom and gloom following Saturday’s result there is still a lot to be...
Extra Time: One of Those Years

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...
Final Whistle: Backs To The Wall

Final Whistle: Backs To The Wall

It was very much backs to the wall for Plymouth Argyle as they climbed off the foot of the League One table courtesy of a late Toumani Diagouraga winner at Home Park on Saturday. Once again the tactics of manager Derek Adams were a key talking point with many...

The Opposition View: Gillingham

First of all, how did you get into supporting Gillingham? I have my dad to blame for this one! He surprised me with a ticket to my first ever game back in 2003. Rod Wallace scored in a 1-1 draw against Rotherham. I can’t really recall how a 7 year old me reacted to it...
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...
Final Whistle: 1-0 or Bust

Final Whistle: 1-0 or Bust

Another game. Another host of chances wasted. Whilst Plymouth Argyle would hardly be fighting for promotion if they had a few players who could finish their chances, they certainly would not be languishing at the bottom of League One, something that was again evident...

The Opposition View: Bradford City

Written by Jason McKeown, Editor of Independent Bradford City website Width of a Post .   First of all, how did you get into supporting Bradford City? My first game was actually 20 years ago last month. One morning, a group of friends told me they were going to...

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...
Final Whistle: Same Old Problems

Final Whistle: Same Old Problems

Following Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at the hands of Portsmouth, Plymouth Argyle returned to the foot of the League One table as Bury’s 0-0 draw with fellow strugglers Northampton saw them leapfrog Derek Adams’ side. The battle for survival is continuing...
Extra Time: Positive Thinking

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....
