A brief introduction Still without a win and no point in the last three games,  Argyle fans are growing ever concerned. This season seems to be more or less an identical replica of last season…except with even fewer points! In the toxic atmosphere that followed...

First XI: Matt Macey – 5 One highlight in amongst the despair for Argyle on Saturday afternoon was a superb double save from Arsenal loanee Macey, whose quick reactions prevented Doncaster from making it 3-1 a long while before they eventually did. There’s hardly an...

A brief introduction After six games and zero wins, Plymouth Argyle find themselves bottom of the table. It feels like a direct repeat of last season with another dire start leaving us with a lot of catching up to do. Last week Adams’ men were thrashed away to...

A brief introduction Argyle head into this game in the lowest of spirits following a poor start to the season that has seen them dumped out of the League Cup as well as collecting only two points from a possible fifteen. Stalwarts of last season’s push towards...

Matt Macey – 4 The defeat against Peterborough was game to forget for Matt Macey. An early mistake leading to our opposition’s opener seemed to derail the loanee stopper, culminating his worst performance in an Argyle shirt. Macey received a relatively...

Preview: Peterborough United A brief introduction Argyle head into Saturday’s game, still without a win in the league so far. After being in the lead in four of their five games, they have only held out for a win in one of them and that was in the league cup. Derek...

Lessons Learned: Wycombe

We have much improved squad depth. I think you could put forward the argument that this is the greatest level of squad depth that Argyle have had since we dropped to the foot of the football league. The ability to leave such talent out of the starting eleven against...

A brief introduction:  Argyle and Wycombe go into the game having each suffered a start to the season that could only be described as ignominious. Both sides on one point from three games, they will each go into Tuesday’s fixture with a state of mind that,...

Matt Macey – 8 Despite the loss, Macey had another stellar performance. The on-loan Arsenal stopper is still yet to concede from open play this season, three of the four goals conceded coming from the spot and the other from a direct free kick. He had little to...
Lessons Learned: Coventry

Lessons Learned: Coventry

Argyle’s style is too direct to work this season. Many fans are baffled that Argyle continue to stutter their way to the start of the League One season, given the excellent way we performed with a fit team in the second half of last season with a similar...

A brief intro Plymouth Argyle head into this fixture after a fantastic giant killing win against Bristol City, knocking last season’s semi-finalists out of the League Cup, but a slightly disappointing start to the League One campaign following a draw against Southend...

A brief introduction. It was a grim feeling of familiarity as the first hint of the new season, the League Cup first round draw, saw the exact same outcome of last season when it was confirmed in the middle of June that Argyle would travel to Ashton Gate to face...

Player Ratings: Southend

Starting XI: Matt Macey – 7 – Man of the Match: It was a shaky start for the Arsenal loanee, but he grew into the game as it progressed and, in the end, he may well have been the difference between a point and nothing for Argyle. With Southend squandering many chances...

A brief introduction Argyle and Southend go into Saturday’s game in situations not entirely dissimilar from one another. Both sides have added depth to their squad this summer, are fancied by their own fans but lost their opening games of the season by a...

Starting XI Matt Macey – 7. On paper conceding two goals is enough to ruin any goalkeepers performance, but it’s hard to pin either of the goals on Macey here. He saved Cooks initial penalty attempt, diving to his left and saving with his legs only for an...
Lessons Learned: Walsall

Lessons Learned: Walsall

Some of the new players looked good. Matt Macey, Argyle’s replacement goalkeeper, handled the ball well and made some smart stops including a penalty save (which he was unfortunate to concede from ultimately). Ashley Smith-Brown looked sharp and very technically...

Kyle Letheren- 6. Upon his return to the side following Remi Matthews becoming a father in the early hours of Saturday morning, Letheren was largely untested in a solid Argyle performance in which the win was fully deserved. He was perhaps caught somewhere in no...
