WHY PLYMOUTH??

Plymouth Argyle are my local team as I am from near by Cornwall. It was the first team I went to a stadium to see, I was a season ticket holder for a couple of years when they were in The Championship which seems an age ago now though! The club has had a tough time of it since then suffering relegation's, financial issues etc but has stabilised the last couple of years and won Promotion back to League 1 in 2017 and made a late dash from nowhere for last season's Play-Off's but just missed out. 

 

I hope to get Plymouth back to The Championship asap, the funds are tight compared to most of League 1 but the club does finally have a stable bank balance so long term finances shouldn't be too bad, Want to also try and keep as much as the real life squad around for the first 6 months/season if possible and build from there.

League 1 Plymouth are today on the look out for a new 

manager after Derek Adams resigned today due to

personal issues.

Adams guided the Devon club to 7th place in League 1 

last season missing the Play-Off spots by 3 points due to 

a fabulous end of season run after struggling in the first half

of the season, Adams had been at the club since 2015.

Chairman Simon Hallett spoke to BBC following the shock

resignation of Adams.

'I have today unfortunately received and accepted the

resignation from Derek, It was a very heavy heart but 

after all the hard work Derek has done for this club we must

respect his wishes for the future, everyone involved with

PAFC wishes Derek all the very best success for the future and

he will forever be a permanent member of The Green Army!

We hope to name his successor in the coming days.'

Plymouth Argyle have today promoted former youth product

and ex England Star from Youth Coach to First Team Manager.

Hoskinho has been coaching at his boyhood club since retiring 

due to injuries in October 2015 although he did make a brief 

return to playing for Plymouth in 2017.

'I am over the moon to be appointed manager of this fantastic club, 

It has been a big aim of mine since retiring to get in to coaching and

management, I appreciate and look forward to this massive

opportunity the club has given me and I cannot wait to get started.'

When quizzed about the manner of his predecessor Hoskinho said

'Me & Derek have developed a close relationship ever since my return

to the club and I am gutted I wont see him at training every day but

everyone at the club understands and respects his reasoning and 

wish him well and can't wait to catch up with him soon, When I retired

Derek was kind enough to let me join his staff and It was Derek who 

considered me to play the 9 games at the end of 2017 to get us 

through, I had too much respect for Derek to let him and this club 

down, I know all the lads will miss him but hopefully I can follow on

his good work and keep improving this great club.'

LW & RW

 GRAHAM CAREY- The best player at the club and one of the best in this league, Must Keep him, I plan to play him as a CAM or CM.

25692468_CAREYoriignalstartofseason.thumb.jpg.142bdb04afb6976e6230b1314065dbe2.jpg

 

EXPECTATIONS

Obviously Initially stay in league 1, but I am looking to improve the club long term and get us back to The Championship, I need to build the team around Graham Carey.

 

I plan to make profit on any player i can within reason to then improve the team, initially only singing free and cheap players to use or keep and sell on fr profits to then use to improve the playing squad.

The club sold 3 players this summer on permanent deals, raising nearly 

250k in transfer fees.

    20190124204713_1.jpg.1c479d7ae81d2ab5512b8b5fbc80e076.jpg

 

GARY SAWYER- Was my only real left back at the time and is a Argyle legend so was hard to sell him but 70K for somebody his age enabled me to bring in younger players with more potential.... (Sorry Gazza!)

YANN SONGO'O- He had played a bit in pre-season in CM, CB & RB and liked his versatility but out of nowhere Dundee bid 100k so I couldn't turn it down and saved me the headache of figuring out where he should play.

LIONEL AINSWORTH- Average transfer listed Winger, Mansfield offered me 35k but played hard ball, stupidly they budged and i got a really good sum for a complete back up player.

PRE-SEASON RESULTS

Pre-Season slowly improved although the quality of opposition wasn't always the best. My biggest issue is what to do with my best player Graham Carey as Lameiras is playing really well on the RW.

As you can see after raising a bit of money from player sales plus the 120k or so I was given for transfers I've saved it or put some in to the wage bill in order to attract a number of Loan or free transfers so good to make a nice profit on the window which will help us in future windows, Also Everton are now our Senior Affiliate.

off management career with 3 points.Medium1.thumb.JPG.c9f6a4b220bb68dfce39244c0ea9d17d.JPG

Plymouth Argyle new manager Tomasso Hoskinho kicked off his career

in management today with 3 points away to Walsall. 

The new Plymouth Manager will be delighted to see his players win so

comfortably especially away from home so early in the season.

Portugese wide man Ruben Lameiras gave Plymoiuth an early lead before

key man Graham Carey gave then doubled the  Devon club's advantage

with a curling effort from outside the box, New Forward Freddie Ladopo then

opened his account for the club with a goal to kill the game off in injury time

after Plymouth had cruised the 2nd half with no real problems. 

Plymouth entertain Southend in Hoskinho's first home game next week.

 ARGYLE DEMOLISH WOLVES IN THE CARABAO CUP   0_2045099.thumb.jpg.2aa8bdad77a19f60323ce347a533d651.jpg

League 1 Plymouth have knocked out Premier League Wolves in the 2nd Rnd

of the Carabao Cup after demolishing the Premier League side 4-1. 

2 Freddie Ladaopo goals sandwiched either side of a Wolves Own Goal and 

a 20 yard volley from Antoni Sarcevic. 

The Premier League side were far from full strength but still possessed

enough quality on the field but Plymouth were too good for the Premier

League counterparts .

REWARDED WITH A HUGE HOME DRAW IN THE NEXT ROUND!!!!

ladapo 7 10.jpg

RUBEN LAMEIRAS- 12 Games-2  Goals- 6 Assists- 7.23 AVR- Right Wing (Inside Forward)

A REALLY SOLID START FROM THE LADS, ESPECIALLY AS OUR BEST PLAYER GRAHAM CAREY MISSED A FEW GAMES.

574279887_710LEAGUETABLE.thumb.jpg.b1f0b98a2e1bb094563da18da028dc9f.jpg

 

OCTOBER WAS A VERY STRANGE MONTH.......
