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.
