“I don’t care about the money it cost to get here, I want the last 2 and a half hours of my life back if possible.”

“Players should personally refund every single fan that went to watch today. Embarrassing.”

“Adams needs to walk now.”

“That score is embarrassing. League 2 beckons.”

“I’d sack 5 of them at half-time and terminate the contracts as soon as we got back to Home Park.”

“I reckon 10-0 would flatter us today.”

“Don’t know what can be said anymore.”

I usually try and find some contrasting opinions from fans to show the different types of reaction to results, but I couldn’t find any positive ones this week.

That was probably because Argyle limped to their second 5-1 hammering of the season at Luton Town on Saturday.

The pre-match build-up to Saturday’s game was focused on former Argyle cult hero Sonny Bradley, who left to join the Hatters in the summer after turning down a new deal at Home Park.

The old ‘returning player’ curse was feared among the Argyle faithful, with the unwritten rule that an ex-player is nigh on certain to score against you threatening to rear its ugly head again.

Except in the end it turned out he was just about the only player not to score against us on Saturday.

Instead it was a James Collins hat-trick and goals from Elliot Lee and James Justin that condemned Argyle to their 11th defeat from their 18 league games this term. Joel Grant replied late on but the goal was about as much use as a pair of armbands in the middle of the Pacific.

The defeat ended a run of three wins from four games. It seems as if after appearing to turn the corner in what has been a fairly wretched season so far, we’ve now ended up just veering into the chevrons instead.

“I wish he would come out all guns blazing and admit that it wasn't good enough and nor were/are the players.”

Some fans have an obsession with wanting to hear a manager openly criticise his team in the post-match press conference, which just isn’t going to happen.

Managers aren’t going to tell the press what they really think of the shambolic performance they’ve just witnessed because the temporary placation of the fans with brutal honesty is not worth the potentially long-term rupture in dressing room harmony as a result of calling out the squad to the regional and national press.

It has happened in the past and it usually ends the same way – the manager loses the dressing room and is promptly shown the exit.

What you generally get is a “we weren’t good enough today” which rarely pleases the fans, but you know the words will be far different in the dressing room to what he tells the local paper.

I’m sure there will have been plenty of words shared at full-time whistle – even from Mr Adams who allegedly does not swear – with the hope of sparking a reaction ahead of this weekend’s game at home to Fleetwood.

We can only hope.
