So what was it? The change of management leading to a change of football style, the additional fans that turned up or just the odds? Argyle won! The Fans ReUnited day saw supporters of a myriad of clubs attend Home Park, not just those from Brighton who pumped the atmosphere right up, but Wednesday, Bristol, Torquay, Norwich, even Falkirk! ...and many more. And what's more it worked wonders on the pitch. With Ridsdale due to stand down as chairman cos he's no longer in the running for Director of Football following the collapse of the BIL bid, maybe, just maybe, things are going to start turning good.

Again nu-Argyle get stuffed by the old Argyle. Not content with having an ex manager (who saw over part of the demise of the club) but two ex Argyle players scored the goals - including one who signed for a matter of days during this mess and buggered off due to non payment of wages. To top it call the skipper gets sent off for scraping with the opposition, in yet another match with saw the Greens down to the bones of their ass.
Ultimately though this has proved to be Reid downfall and was his last as manager of PAFC.

Not much to say really following yet another defeat, nothing's changed and nothing will because until Argyle is secured off pitch, the on pitch performance will not improve. There is no money and no security to buy and retain players to form any sort of team that can compete, even at this level. In fact, considering Argyle are adrift at the wrong end of the table over the drop out of the league, many would Argyle fans prefer relegation to extinction.

Argyle just don't - and never have had - the skills and aptitude to be in the league they're are in. When in the Championship, the team were mainly L1 players, when relegated to L1 the team's ability fell to L2 level, and now in L2 we're playing at Conference ability. And that's where Argyle will end up, because there is now no hard-done by feeling at a loss, just a resignation that they won't score and that's that then. The players are playing their hearts out, but they're heads aren't in it. Until something is sorted off the field, every Saturday is just going through the motions. And those motions are giving the opposition 3 points of a plate every game.

Statement from The P&A Partnership re Plymouth Argyle Football Company Limited (in administration)
The joint administrators of Plymouth Argyle Football Company Limited (in administration) have confirmed that all staff (both players and other employees) have today (2 September 2011) been paid 40 per cent of their September wages on the basis of an agreement that they will continue to work up to and including 15 September 2011.
The P&A Partnership would like to stress that legal formalities are taking longer than anticipated to complete.
However, Bishop International Ltd and Plymouth (125) Limited have both stated that they remain confident that they will be able to conclude the transaction shortly.
In the end the players did not go ahead with their strike following the paying of 40% of the staff's wages, though there was a bigger crowd of press at the game following the national exposure. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, they witnessed the fruits of the Argyle situation. Reid has admitted there is a lack of fire power in the squad, but there is very little he can do about it except work with who he has got, though they made a concerted effort. Goals win games and the Pilgrims' squad, as it stands, simply cannot come up with enough of them and they remain 4 points adrift at the bottom of the football ladder.
