Plymouth Argyle 0 - 1 Hartlepool United
Well who would have guessed that? A win away and an immediate loss at home. Where have we seen all this before? Hmm? As much as Tuesday was history repeating over years, today was history repeating over weeks. Fortress Home Park, where we can rely on Argyle to pick up points amid an intimidating atmosphere have long gone, and so have the crowds, passion and excitement. Even if there were only 70 opposition fans, there was a gate of around 7,000 hardy people who probably once again turned up on the back of a win with a little optimism that had been extinguished in familiar style. How many will return after their second let down in as many weeks?
The sign on the Devonport End we all should know should now be altered to read:
PLYMOUTH ARGYLE WELCOMES YOU TO THREE POINTS
