So what happens now?

Another suitcase in another hall.

And it's Holloway's after being revealed yesterday as Leicester's new manager.

What happens now?
Where do we go from here?
Where [are we] going to?
You'll get by you always have before.

Pertinent words from Tim Rice and the musical Evita. What does happen now? In the short term we have a game with Breaker as acting manager, but he'll probably leave soon. Like Breacker the rest of Ollie's staff will probably follow him up to Leicester soon, most probably along with some of our players. Where does that leave us?

Ollie has seen fit to put the blame firmly on the door of the board for being tightfisted, for allowing all his best players to leave by not providing the financial backing - and hinted that Argyle will not keep hold of the players whose contracts are ending this year. Additionally he has blamed supporters for not turning up to matches, for booing at games and for making comments about his management. And for everyone connected with the club for not being as ambitious as he was or as Leicester is (basically stating that Argyle will never get to the Premier League because no one wants it).

Therefore, what becomes of the board? There has already been unrest about the perceived lack of spending power, ambition and direction of the board. When the dust settles, will the spotlight be turned upon them for their (so called inadequacies)? Does anyone at Argyle really want to push "Onwards and Upwards" or is it just a farce - Argyle will never get to the "promised land" and is just lucky to be where they are at the moment? Look at how long the so called phase 2 of Home Park has rumbled on with no progress and no direction.

There are a lot of questions to be answered, but will there be anyone willing to address them?

The song obvious ends with "Don't ask anymore" as Eva gets her big break, will it be the same for Argyle, will everyone live happily ever after, or "don't ask anymore" because you'll never get an answer?
