November 1, 2009

“Well, that showed me, didn’t it? A hopelessly limited Plymouth Argyle team came to the Riverside, put ten men behind the ball, defended deep, soaked up the pressure and hit us on the break. Comparisons between this and the similar 1-0 defeats at home to Leicester and Watford can’t be avoided, and demonstrate that Gordon has some tough decisions to make in turning the side into a winning one.” (SmogBlog)
