REUBEN Reid was effusive in his admiration for Argyle manager John Sheridan after the Pilgrims came through the final day of the npower League 2 season unscathed.A 1-0 defeat at Rochdale was not enough to relegate Argyle from the Football League for the first time in their history.
As he has done in many of the matches in his three-month loan from Yeovil Town, Reuben led the forward line alone – a role he had not played before linking up with John.
“I would play for the manager any day of the week,” said Reuben, a former Argyle apprentice.
“I trust him as a human being, aside from football.
“He tells you how it is. If you’re no good, you’re no good; if you’ve done well, you’ve done well. He won’t push it – he just lets you know how things are.
“I think that is the best way to do it
“I’ve played a role completely different from what I’ve done before. I’m glad I’ve played the role because – if this makes sense – I’ve learnt something else to my game now. I’ve proved there’s another side to me.
“Normally I would float around – maybe I’d not run around so much but I’d get on the scoresheet or set someone up – but I’ve effectively learned to play a new position.
“As long as we are winning games, I don’t mind. I would have liked the Plymouth fans to see maybe a leaner, sharper Reuben with a few more goals, but the job’s done, so I’m happy.”
