After weeks of speculation and silence, Peter Reid has been appointed Argyle manager this week. Reid has been handed the helmsmanship and will be leaving his assistant manager role with ex manager, Tony Pulis, at Stoke who has given his full commendation for the man.
Reid began his managerial career at Manchester City before moving to Sunderland after his dismissal (with a year back as a player with Southamption). He was let go by Black Cats after 8 years, when he joined Leeds from where he has since managed Coventry and Thailand before becoming Pulis' right hand man. This leaves a question mark still over the heads of Mariner and Carver, though as Reid doesn't appear to have his own yes men, they may be kept on.
So now, just a few weeks before pre-season, which is very limited this year due to the pitch - the big profile home game has already been cancelled - and only Truro and Saltash, as well as the Netherlands games, have been announced. Reid has a lot to do over the next few weeks to turn anything around.
