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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Player Ratings: Walsall

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...

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...

Remi Matthews – 4. An uncharacteristically poor game from the Norwich loanee, as he was beaten a little too easily for Bristol Rovers’ first goal and was caught our by Ellis Harrison’s pressing twice, nearly conceding in the process after kicking the ball into...

Remi Matthews: 8 MOTM. The game was not wholly defined by keepers: Argyle played well in spells and had chances of their own, but the excellence of Matthews cannot be denied even if it is not the case that he singlehandedly won us our point. His command of area and...

Remi Matthews: 7. Another good game was had by Matthews by and large who picked up his second clean sheet in a row. He claimed most of what he had to deal with admirably in terms of crosses and his distribution was also accurate. One flap in the air however near the...

Remi Matthews – 7 With Blackburn on an eighteen match unbeaten run which started when the Pilgrims visited Ewood Park earlier on in the season, Matthews controlled the goalmouth when called upon with crosses, but was not forced into any serious action. Oscar Threlkeld...

Remi Matthews-7. Matthews put in yet another accomplished performance in goal with two excellent saves, one in each half. He could also not be blamed for Oldham’s goal which was an unfortunate error from Yann Songo’o. Only his kicking, which was slightly...

Winner: Ryan Taylor Argyle have been mightily impressive since Taylor came back in to the side. In fact, since he made his first league start after months out with an ankle injury, Argyle have taken a total of 14 points from a maximum of 18 and climbed clear of the...

Player Ratings: Walsall

Remi Matthews – 7. Matthews had something of an uneventful return to Home Park, only being forced into action a couple times. Competently dealt with a number of Walsall half chances, showing good command of his area and did well to stay composed to stop...

Player Ratings: Blackpool

Starting XI Remi Matthews – 7. Matthews was generally efficient on his return to Home Park and neither of the goals in the 2-2 draw can really be put down to him. The first was through a crowd of players when he was clearly unsighted, and for the second, once it...

Argyle do not need to rush to sign Remi Matthews when the January transfer window re-opens. Former Norwich loan goalkeeper Matthews who has won the attention of hundreds of Argyle fans on Twitter lately has been dropping countless hints that he will be returning to...

Kelle Roos – 7. A good performance from the on-loan Derby County man, making some good saves and commanding his back four very well – did miss a cross in first half stoppage time which went unpunished, however. Oscar Threlkeld – 6. Seemed off the...
