IT is nearly here.If, like us, you are now getting stupidly excited at the prospect of the 2014-15 season getting underway, you will want to make sure that you have all the angles covered when it comes to getting your news this season.
There have never been more ways to follow Argyle, wherever you may be, as we take on the challenge of Sky Bet League 2 once again.
To help you out, we have compiled the myriad of ways that you can follow the Greens, wherever you may be. Panama or Plymstock, Mutley Plain or the Sahara Desert, Higher St Budeaux or Outer Mongolia - these are the ways to follow us...
Argyle Player (player.pafc.co.uk/home) is a premium subscription service designed to keep you as close to the club as we can. For just £37.99 - for a 12-month subscription - you get access to live commentary for EVERY game. Whatever the competition, wherever you are in the world, you can listen to BBC Radio Devon's excellent coverage, streamed through Argyle Player, including commentators supreme Gordon Sparks and Drew Savage. Player is the ONLY place to hear Argyle commentaries outside of the BBC Radio Devon transmission area.
Also on Argyle Player, you have exclusive access to pre- and post-match interviews with John Sheridan and the players, as well as highlights of every Sky Bet League 2 game. Football League Interactive - who oversee websites of Football League clubs - have assured us that every Sky Bet League 2 fixture will have a minimum of FIVE minutes of highlights exclusive to Player throughout 2014-15.
Here on pafc.co.uk, you get the official news direct from the club first on every matter. Transfers will always be published here first, and we aim to get match reports of every Argyle game to you within 10 minutes of the final whistle. We also feature picture galleries, written interview highlights with the manager and players before and after each game, as well as news from the Academy, Ladies team, Football in the Community and every other part of the football club.
Part of pafc.co.uk is the Argyle Wall. The Wall features updates direct from our Twitter feed on match-days, and we plan on utilising it more this season to feature extra interviews, pictures and interaction.
The Green Gospel is spread with the help of our Twitter account (twitter.com/Only1Argyle), which at the time of writing is followed by almost 23,000 people - an increase year on year in excess of 52%. This is the third highest following in League 2, and higher than many Championship and League 1 sides. Not bad for an account which did not even exist two seasons ago. Of those 23,000 followers, only 9% are based in Plymouth - 22% are not UK-based, which further indicates the worldwide scope of modern social media.
We use Twitter to break news directly to fans; to Live Tweet matches to keep you up-to-date with what is happening; and to generally entertain and inform of everything going on at Home Park. Are some of our jokes rubbish? Yes, of course; but Twitter - and football - is there to be enjoyed and is about having fun, which we try to do. We believe fun and banter are an integral part of both football and Twitter.
We are approaching 15,000 'likes' on Facebook (facebook.com/plymouthargylefc). FB is a forum where it is easier to share our news, statuses and photos, and is simpler for the Green Army to engage and discuss our goings on.
The Argyle Angels - who perform dance routines at every home fixture, and assist with numerous community projects on Argyle's behalf - have now set up their own Facebook page, too. You can find them at facebook.com/argyleangels
On our YouTube channel (youtube.com/argylemedia), you will be able to see one minute of highlights from each of our games in 2014-15. On YouTube, we also feature Flipagram slideshows of games, behind-the-scenes shoots, flashbacks and other snippets from around Home Park.
We are quite new to Instagram (instagram.com/only1argyle), but we are enjoying using it for snapshots of life at Argyle. We would also love you to get involved and send us your snaps from life among the Green Army.
