Plymouth Argyle star Graham Carey has been nominated for yet another award - this time the EFL goal of the season. And you can help him win it! The Irishman scored an incredible volley in Argyle's trip to Blackpool earlier in the campaign which won him the goal of the month award for December. The quality of that strike has earned it a place in the top ten best goals of the season for the entire Football League, from the Championship to League Two. You can vote on the winner by using the links included in the tweet below. Carey admitted earlier this season that the goal at Blackpool was one of his career favourites. He said: “I don’t tend to score a lot of volleys so it’s up there with one of my favourites. “The ball dropped to Sonny (Bradley) and the way we have been playing lately is turning teams, and I knew he was going to do that. “Tayls (striker Ryan Taylor) won a great header and played it down the side. “To be fair, I looked up to see if … [Read more...] about Plymouth Argyle’s Graham Carey nominated for EFL goal of the season
Nearly twenty two years ago Plymouth Argyle unveiled £25million plans for a future super-stadium – called the ‘tradium’ – and said it would be ready by 1999. The scheme didn’t ever get off the ground as Plymouth Argyle’s fortunes changed in the late 1990s, and disappeared from the agenda. At the time Argyle spokesman Rick Cowdery said: “The club is now very close to completing the purchase of the freehold of Home Park from the city council, and it is also preparing to start building the Grandstand after three-quarters of the stadium has been built. “The Grandstand will be tradium-like. The idea is that it will be open for things like conferences with excellent facilities – more than just a football stadium. That is the same concept as the tradium.” The tradium was going to have 23,000 seats, boasting top class sports, leisure and entertainment facilities. It was intended to house business conferences, hospitality events … [Read more...] about Whatever happened to Plymouth Argyle’s ‘tradium’ plans?
Plymouth Argyle host Southend United on Good Friday this year as they continue their push to qualify for the League One play-offs. The first of the two Easter games has been a productive one for the Pilgrims in recent years, so we're hoping this year will prove no different. Take a look back on their last five Good Friday matches to see if you remember any of them. Plymouth Argyle 1-0 Exeter City Easter Saturday 2013 We've had to cheat a little bit with this first one as the first of Argyle's Easter fixtures back in 2013 didn't actually take place on Good Friday! But given what happened we couldn't bring ourselves not to include it. With the Pilgrims battling bravely against relegation they hosted high-flying Devon rivals Exeter City who had the chance to go fourth with a win. The visitors missed several chances at Home Park with Jamie Cureton responsible for spurning a guilt-edged opportunity from eight yards in the second half. It was Jason Banton who scored the only goal of the game … [Read more...] about How good has Good Friday been to Plymouth Argyle in the last five years?
Southend United manager Chris Powell is the latest person to praise the work done by Derek Adams at Plymouth Argyle. The two managers will come up against each other at Home Park on Friday, in the quest for League One points, with both clubs having an eye on the play-offs. As things stand, Argyle sit one place outside the top six, but only on goal difference, while Southend are 12th and seven points adrift of the Pilgrims. Both have eight games remaining this campaign. Southend sacked manager Phil Brown – along with his assistant, the popular former Argyle defender Graham Coughlan - back in January with the club 18th in the table and two points above the drop zone. Powell has led the renaissance at Roots Hall, but while his work in turning around their fortunes has been impressive, it does not compare to Argyle’s Adams. “I’m sure Derek [Adams] will be hoping his team bounce back from their defeat because they’ve been going well [before the defeat to … [Read more...] about Southend boss hails the work done by Derek Adams at Plymouth Argyle
Last week, we wondered whether Derek Adams was creating something of a smokescreen with regards to influential defender Sonny Bradley, as he prepared his team for an important clash with Charlton Athletic. Bradley had indicated after the 3-2 win over Bristol Rovers that he would be returning to training the following Monday, effectively giving himself the whole of the working week to be ready for the trip to The Valley. The news was met with delight from the Green Army, but on the Tuesday, manager Adams had ruled him out of contention. The Pilgrims boss is not adverse to the odd mind game and coming just a few days after Bradley had confessed to his imminent return, we wondered if it was a tactic designed to confuse the Addicks and their new caretaker manager Lee Bowyer. As it transpired that was not the case. Bradley did not feature in south London, Argyle went down to a 2-0 defeat and post-match, everyone was talking about the urgent need to get Bradley fit and in the team again. We … [Read more...] about Is now the time for Taylor-Sinclair to return for Plymouth Argyle?
