The Opposition View - Plymouth


Following last night's 1-1 draw with Plymouth Argyle, here are some views on the game from the Pilgrims' manager Carl Fletcher and a few of their fans.

"We could have got three points but we could have got none. It must have been a great game to watch," said Fletcher.

"Wycombe have just changed their manager and it was his first home game, and the players and the crowd were up for it."

"I just felt we were a little bit off it in the first half in terms of possession. We got a little bit better in the second half, but I felt our decision-making on the ball wasn't where it could be."

"It was disappointing to concede but, once we did concede, I was happy with the way we responded. We settled down a little bit and passed the ball around a little bit, which was nice."

"I was pleased with the goal. It was what we talked about at half-time - to get the ball wide and let Macca create something. It was a great ball in and a good head-stroke-shoulder from Guy to get it in the corner."

"I'm pleased for him because he`s worked hard for it. He was up against two massive centre-halves and was getting kicked about, elbows in his head, and all that type of thing."


The Argyle fans enjoyed their team's second half performance and were grateful to keeper Jake Cole for his stoppage time super-save.

The following extracts are taken from Pasoti, the Plymouth Herald and the Football Forum.

'At 1-0 down I'd have settled for a draw all night long. Ainsworth was all over us like an ill-fitting suit and only the heroics of Jake Cole kept Argyle in the game.'

'Very poor result. Increasingly looking like Morecambe was a blip. Just go Fletch.'

'Wycombe had a game plan last night that had us rattled several times. They just kept on running at us, beating Williams and Purse with pace; lucky for us their skill levels didn't match their endeavours.'

'Good value for money last night. it was an entertaining, enjoyable match in which both teams played well and Argyle showed that it's all coming together nicely and we can feel optimistic. Plenty of skill, inventiveness and teamwork. Yep, we still can improve, but plenty of cause for anticipating that to happen.'

'First half, we weren't dreadful, more ineffective. It was no surprise that Wycombe scored. Gareth Ainsworth was playing well and set up their goal. Second half was much better. Madjo scored a very soft header and I think Argyle realised at that point that Archer, Wycombe's loanee keeper, was a bit nervy. Great save from Cole at the end and a shot against the bar from us meant an exciting end to not the most exciting of matches.'

'Their centre backs were a pair of brutes who were both pretty slow and could have been exposed by pace.'

'Can't argue with the result, great save from Cole at the end and still time for us to hit the bar in the dying seconds. As usual we can't play well for extended periods of time but a point is a point. It's going to be a long season but we won't go down.'

'You have to see the save from Jake, I swear to god it's the best I have ever seen, amazing!'

'One of the best saves I've ever seen, live or on the goggle box. Completely reactionary, if he'd have thought about it he wouldn't have saved it. He made another good save from a corner too.'


Sam Barker wrote:
'My heart had already sunk as I was certain it was flying in! If there was a 'Save Of The Season' contest I think we would have just found a winner! Well done Jake, kept us the point.'

'Disappointing not to win but just about fair. I didn't think either side looked particularly good. We created chances and not only scored but looked entirely capable of scoring more. Highlight of the game was Jake Cole's late save though, from the wrong end of the ground it looked genuinely amazing, I was absolutely sure it was going in.'
