Edgar Who?

14 October 2012

THE sight of Edgar Davids in the Barnet dug-out did not faze Argyle as they romped to a huge away win at Underhill.

Living Dutch legend Davids was experiencing his first game as joint-Head Coach of the Bees, and had to watch as Rhys Griffiths, Max Blanchard, Paris Cowan-Hall and Luke Young scored in the Pilgrims’ 4-1 victory.

The fillip that comes with changing a new manager is nothing new for Argyle this season, and they were 2-0 up inside 11 minutes.

Argyle manager Carl Fletcher said: “We’ve had it with Wycombe and Wimbledon both changing their managers and their players have a little bit more energy. So we were fully aware of it.

“[Davids] must have put a few more on the gate. It was just a question of quietening the game down, especially early on, and killing it. And our early goals helped that.

“I’m delighted for the team, really. They work hard, and sometimes we haven’t got the results we have deserved with our performances this season.

“I felt today we got a bit of everything.”
