Clicking Into Gear

ARGYLE goalkeeper Alex Palmer believes that the team have yet to reach their full potential, but once the later additions to Ryan Lowe’s squad bed-in, the Green Army will see a positive change.

Alex admits that the start to the Sky Bet League Two season has been challenging but they will improve, hopefully starting this Saturday away to Port Vale.

“It’s been good, its been tough,” said Alex. “Obviously we’re a new bunch of lads getting to know each other but it’s gone relatively okay, I think we’ll only get better as a team. That will take time and, once we totally click, we will play to our capabilities and we will be flying.“

Ryan Lowe’s shopping in the winter window went on until deadline day with George Cooper coming in on loan from Peterborough. Zak Rudden from Rangers was another relatively late arrival and Alex feels it is simply a matter of time before the Greens are firing on all cylinders

“We have had a lot of later signings who are getting used to the group and getting into the ethos,” said the ‘keeper on loan from West Brom.

“It is just getting used to how the gaffer wants us to play. Once they [the new signings] get in and make a difference to the team, I think it’ll be really good.”

Even though we are early in the season, Alex feels his Argyle loan is a huge benefit to him at this stage of his career and he can see similarities between Argyle and his parent-club West Bromwich Albion.

“I’ve had an upbringing at West Brom where that’s how they play, so I feel like I have a good sense of know-how,” he said. “It is different everywhere you go, the gaffer has got different ideas to back at West Brom. It’s a good experience and it’s only going to make me a better ‘keeper by doing this [coming to Argyle].”
