    Argyle 1st XI 2 - 2 Exeter Reserves.

    RogHK has summed it up nicely, no injuries, game time for fringe players - the 10k for a win would have been nice but this is fine in my book.

Chatting to their fans in a Devonport pub they are not happy off the field, more unhappy than on, and on is bad, so that sums them up.
    FA cup soon. Proper Cup. Can't be having Tuesdays in this rust bucket trophy. Let them have their 30 seconds of glory. They've had their shot in the arm, their adrenalin rush will last a day or two, they are ill, they will be suffering again very soon. They shoot horses.
    I thought they'd scuttle a sinking ship down at Devonport.

    Has Lloyd James ever scored from a dead ball situation? Prefer him not to be taking our free kicks.

    Neither the manager or any players that have been interviewed share this opinion. It's a competition that ECFC are entered in and as such will always attempt to progress as far as possible. When there's a film on at my local cinema that I don't wish to see, I don't buy a ticket. The other thing I don't do is go on and on endlessly about how crap the film or its director is.

    If we see this competition just as a chance to try out players in a relatively competitive environment I don't think it does any harm, win or lose.

    Tis was quite enthusiastic about the competition afterwards and the luxury of it is that the results don't really matter. Players like Matt Jay and Kane Wilson definitely benefit from having starts, which they are unlikely to get anywhere else, and formations and partnerships can be tried out which might one day have to be used in a league game because of injury. I don't care about the results in the competition but I would have really liked to have seen the team in action yesterday, especially Kyle Edwards playing ninety minutes.
