We chat to Vital Plymouth journalist Paul about Argyle’s fine start to the season, the departure of Akos Buzsaky, and his hopes for the season.

——————————————–

1.You must be pretty pleased with your start, hovering around the play-off
spots?


A: Yes, absolutely! Argyle have a small squad but the players are a close-knit group and grit and determination allied with skill has served us well this season.

2: Who’ve been the major movers and shakers at Plymouth since last season?

A: Ian Holloway signed the two Hungarians, Peter Halmosi and Krisztian Timar, at the end of last season and they have made a big difference. Halmosi will play in the Premiership one-day. Young striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake is now finding the net on a regular basis, every team needs a regular goal-scorer and we just might have found one for Argyle.

3: Akos Buzsaky, what happened there then?

A: There is some confusion as to the reasons why Buzsaky left Argyle. Some reports say he left for more money at QPR, others say that his contract talks did not go too well and it wasn’t to do with money. It was a complete shock that he departed but a fee of £500,000 in January is excellent business for a player that was soon to be out of contract.

4: What are your hopes for the season?

A: The first target is to reach 50 points and avoid relegation, so after that who knows? Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

5. Who should the Wednesday fans be looking out for as a dangerman?

A: Argyle have a few players who can turn a game. Halmosi and Ebanks-Blake have been mentioned but we also have Manchester United winger Lee Martin on-loan.

6. What about your weaknesses?

A: We have none! Lack of pace in the centre-back position could be considered a chink in our armour!

7. What’s your most memorable Plymouth v Wednesday match?

A: The away win at Hillsborough in our promotion season from Division Two in October 2003 lives long in the memory.

8. What are your thoughts on Wednesday so far this season, and how do you think we’ll do?

A: It’s surprising that you are struggling near the bottom of the league. It’s also hard to believe that the club would turn on it’s own fans and carry out legal action for some remarks made on a messageboard.

9. Finally, what’s your score prediction?

A: A close game and it could go either way but 4-1 to Argyle!

Cheers, Paul – and good luck for the rerst of the season…
