The Green Army Mobilise

IF the unthinkable happens at Spotland on Saturday, it will not be for lack of the collective will of the Green Army.

Somewhere between 2-3,000 Argyle supporters will turn the Greater Manchester side’s stadium into a home from Home Park, providing the kind of support that has so impressed manager John Sheridan since his arrival in January.

An Argyle defeat, combined with the wrong set of results at other venues, will end the Pilgrims’ membership of the Football League which, John believes, is a fate the Green Army’s backing does not merit.

“The fans have been unbelievable,” he said.

“I don’t have to ask them for anything, I know what I’m going to get.

“I know that they’ll be signing non-stop; I know that there’ll be a massive support. It’s down to the players to respond, and I’m sure they will.”

“I can’t believe the support that they give to the team, considering where they are in the league and where they’ve been in for the last two or three years. They deserve it more than anyone. 

“I think that they appreciate that the players are fighting for the cause; that they’re trying to give it their all; and we’re trying to stay in the league.

“If you’re a player and you’ve got 3,000 away fans singing through the 90 minutes, it’s surely going to give you a lift and push you on to get the result you want.”
