We talk to Plymouth Argyle fan page Argyle Away Days ahead of tomorrow’s game at Ewood Park.
What do you make of your team’s transfers in the summer window?
“So far, this summer’s signings can be summed up in 1 word. Underwhelming.
Signings such as Ainsworth, Ness & Grant which offered promise have simply not yet performed. The lack of reinforcements in the goal scoring department is also costing us dearly with us relying on less than prolific options. We needed to dig deep for a reliable goalscorer and didn’t.”
What do you think of Blackburn Rovers’ summer deals?
“Blackburn look to have reinforced well. So far, Samuel seems to be a useful signing from Reading having scored a handful this season already. A youngster as well so one that can and should continue to develop. Certainly one we need to keep an eye on tomorrow night. ”
Who is your team’s player to watch and why?
“At the beginning of the season I’d have said Graham Carey who up until this weekend has gone missing this season.
You just never know when he is going to pop up with a worldy like he did against the Shrews. For that reason I’d watch out for him, useful from set pieces and loves a pop from outside the box.”
How has the first two months and a bit of your season been?
“Disappointing season so far. Started steady but our struggle to score goals is really costing us. 9 goals in 13 games highlights this. It’s obvious but when we’re not scoring we’re not going to win games.
Our stubbornness to change formation and some questionable substitutions have cost us points. The signing of Diagouraga has been a breathe of fresh air and looks like he can add some muscle to the middle of the pitch.”
How do you see your season going?
“If we start turning some of our more promising performances in to a few more points then we should slowly start to climb. I see us narrowly missing relegation and ending up in 18th.”
What is your predicition for the game?
Neither team are on a very good run and with our defensive set up and inability to score goals, I see it being a game of few opportunities. I hope I am wrong or it could be a cold, uninspiring night at Ewood Park!”
