Down and Out

Plymouth Argyle 2 (Nallis 15, Ebanks-Blake 41) - 4 Barnsley (Nyatanga 20, Devaney 31, Devaney 61, Ferenczi 90)

If Ollie was depressed on Sunday, he'll be slitting his wrists tonight, along with many of the Green Army after witnessing the most inept game this season. Not surprisingly after the defeat by Watford, more than half of the supporters didn't attend tonight, and neither did half of the players.

Starting perky with Nallis's goal on 15 minutes, Barnsley responded 5 minutes later and it went down hill from there on in. Argyle had no shape, no head, no coherence. Our defence leaked, our passes went astray, our balls were hoofed, headed and lost, goal-keeping went AWOL-a sense of resignation to the fate of mid table obscurity again. The 'new dream' of wining the next 5 games has burst before it even began.

It's stupid to do but at the moment, I've already written off the Palace game on Saturday.
