Should Aimson be on the list?

I'm confused now. On another thread it doesn't say that Ben Reeves is out of contract this summer. :think:

Playing squad for 21/22 depends on the additions to the squad that Lowe can get with the playing budget that he is given by Hallett. Will the Events put on by the Club during the summer break be able to increase the playing budget by any significant figure?

If we can make use of the hospitality facilities in the grandstand during the first half of the season, then Lowe may find he will be able to have an extra sum of money for adding to the squad during the January transfer period, which could be a big bonus.

Numbers will also be dependent on quality.

Would Lowe prefer to have two players for each position, as he has done so far, or would he be able to get away with less numbers, but better quality players, who would have higher wages, hence lower numbers in the squad? If this was the case he would have to get players who could play in more than one position to give that extra cover needed during the course of the season.

Interesting Summer of negotiations to come, me thinks.

Let's see what Dewsnip comes up with?

If he advised on this years signings then he has got it wrong, if it get's it wrong next season it could be thank you and good bye.

It is worth mentioning that, of the 5 pre-season permanent signings in 2020, 3 (Nouble, Reeves and McLeod) were only given one year contracts.
Only G Cooper and Camara were given longer contracts so, at least, he realised that the other 3 were a bit of a risk.

And the later half of the season Camara was bloody awful, fitsnstarts not good enough. The man needs consistency.

Okay we all have players we would like to see some of them that have played for us previously others that are free agents. So the question is what team would you like to see next season using the players we have and free agents. I have gone for four at the back which could change as players used in various positions
Cooper
Threkheld stearman Wilson law/grant
Randall Edwards
Mayor/baxter Cooper/Carey
Ennis/hardie/jephcott

Yes ready for incoming

Look Carey was a top player. However, people have short memories. The season we got relegated he was very average. And that’s me being kind.

I’m grateful for the wonderful seasons before this but he is past history. People are living on distorted memories because they wiped/erased his final year with us.

It’s like Adams. Because of how well he is doing with Morecambe and maybe they become league one outfit, which l think they will because Adams will be motivated by some unfinished business with Ellison and his celebration.

However even if he gets them promoted it doesn’t re-write history. It doesn’t rewrite the fact we couldn’t win at HP on a Tuesday evening. It doesn’t re-write the fact we shipped in 80 goals in his final season. It doesn’t rewrite the fact his tactics were to stop teams from playing. So much so he substitute another left back in at left midfield in order for us to try and hold onto a win. It doesn’t stop the fact the Taylor was often isolated on his own and we relied heavily on one moment of Carey or Lameiras magic to win the game. Then we’d sit back to hold on for grim death. It doesn’t stop the fact the football was ****.

All this looking in the past is strange. They moved on or we moved on for a reason. Maybe because this club hasn’t been successful that anything good that’s happened we hold onto it for grim death. However, we will get new heroes. And they will move on to. If we want and obtain championship football our new heroes will be better than Carey and Lameiras but they will be put always of a proud past.

Tonight Chelsea are playing a 3-4-2-1.

I always wondered why Argyle with Mayor and G Cooper couldn’t adopt this system with Ennis or Hardie up top. It allows you to give the dribbling players more freedom to roam.

Then you got two holding players, where Randall could be used perhaps and gives the wing backs more security to roam forward.

Simple fact is that the owner made a big error by sacking Adams.

If you read this interview https://www.plymouthherald.co.uk/sport/ ... 427873.amp

you wonder why he didn’t apply the same logic to Adams.

Your logic is so twisted you have to make stuff up in your mind to even back up your points.

Hallett didn’t make a mistake. The football was dire. His tactics were dire. However, unfortunately you don’t want to admit your opinion was wrong. Unfortunately, the relegation back to league two said you were. After four years in charge your opinion about Adams time in charge of Argyle is based on myth.

Deal in the reality. The relegation in his fourth season in charge of us. The writing was on the wall with the spells we couldn’t buy a win for love or money. It got to a point even when we won games you sat there wondering how. We literally hold on. Then Adams come out with ludicrous post match interviews saying how well we played.

Thankfully, Derek Adams is never coming back. Move on, Support the current manager and team.

If Lowe doesn’t improve with his in game tactics, given his bad runs this season, he will go the same way. However, he only has had two seasons in charge. And within this time frame he has had to deal with the brutality of a Covid-19 fixture list.

l fancy Morecambe to win on Monday. I appreciate what he has done there. However, even if he gets them promoted it means absolutely nothing because he failed at Argyle. Morecambe's future success means nothing to us.

I think the blame for Argyle’s relegation 2018-2019, was probably 60% Adams, and 40% the boardroom.

But Adams made the mistake of staying on to oversea budget cuts- it’s the same mistake that many managers have made, and who can blame him on the back of a 5 year contract ? With hindsight DA possibly may wish he’d left at the end of the 2017-2018 season- he’d built up a very good squad- but the writing was on the wall when the board allowed Fleetwood to outbid us for “Dave”.

I remember reading Ian Holloway’s article in which he said he regretted staying on to oversea a cut in playing budget at Bristol Rovers- and he made sure that he didn’t repeat the same mistake, when faced with the same situation at Argyle some years later.

Although you had to feel sorry for DA , because I’m sure that TM, ASB and PG weren’t even his 5th choice signings . Then again he did sign Wootton, Stuart o keefe and Joe Riley ... and they weren’t...erm....much good...,
