SHERIDAN GIVES STICK TO HIMSELF
PLYMOUTH manager John Sheridan is playing a dangerous game. After a 1-0 defeat to Southend on the opening day, the 48-year-old lambasted his players, calling their performance the worst he’d seen in his eight months at Home Park.
Maybe the Pilgrims boss was applying a bit of stick. Maybe he was simply being honest.
But given that he signed most of them himself after a summer clearout, it amounts to a damning indictment of his transfer policy.
Had his players responded, you’d say fair play. But two further defeats suggest all he’s done is aggravate the players and criticise himself. It could be a long, hard season in Devon.
