Torquay United 1 - 0 Plymouth Argyle
"It's only a friendly, it's all about fitness, it's a testimonial." Was the attitude of many going into yesterday's match for Kevin Hill's testimonial. And being a testimonial it is not customary to rain of the parade, but on a rare glorious day, it seemed Argyle couldn't manage a light drizzle let allow a downpour. Ollie played 2 completely separate teams for either half, indicating it wasn't important at all, which led to the first defeat at Plainmoor for a long while. And that's where pride becomes a factor. Being the only league team in Devon you would have thought that Argyle could have at least got the first goal for a draw, but it rapidly became a game of disinterest with Torquay looking a sparkier* team.
What really grated was the smug look and gestures from their goalie after the goal. So in the pride stakes 'am I bovvered?' Well yes I am!
*just noticed that pun - sorry!
