Back In The Day

ARGYLE’S Sky Bet League 2 stalemate at York had manager John Sheridan yearning for the past.

Following the 0-0 draw against the Minstermen, John returned to a familiar refrain from last season, that the Pilgrims are too quiet, and hankered for his playing days when what politicians call full and frank discussions were the dressing-room norm.

“No player has said a word in the dressing-room,” said John. “Years ago, we would have been picking each other out.

“I wish some of them would do it because it’s just my voice all the time, and I’m getting sick of my own voice. I wish people would pick each other out for the benefit of us, but it’s not happening and I’m very disappointed.”

The Pilgrims ponderousness after York were reduced to ten men following the dismissal of former Argyle defender Stephane Zubar also puzzled ex-Irish international John.

“We didn’t affect the game whatsoever,” he said. “We didn’t try to move and played everything in front of [York].

“Everything was so lethargic, I might as well have put my boots on and played in the middle of the park myself. Honestly, it was that slow.”
