Not the Best Outcomes

Plymouth Argyle 0 - 1 Millwall [LC]
Plymouth Argyle 1 - 4 Rotherham United

Not the best kick off to football at the Theatre of Greens, but is there much that can be expected from a team that has not much experience? And what incidentally has happened to Larrieu? Following his testimonial year and decision to stay, Reid has not played him favouring Cole instead. At any rate those that attended the Millwall game gave a good account of the lads that Millwall were not that good and there for the taking, but Argyle history would have predicted that the first foray into the League Cup always ends up in a humiliating dumping out at the earliest opportunity. The reverse however was the feeling verses Rotherham. Literally men against the boys. With Reid summarising as 'suicide football', especially at the home team took the lead - but the passing was all right! Walton has vowed that the same mistakes won't happen again, but you can probably assume it will. The game saw yet another d├ębutante - Will Atkinson - the 22 year old on loan from Hull, who actually scored Argyle's one and only goal. It will be a long hard season, maybe things will click right soon. Maybe.
