Plymouth would deserve to be a World Cup host
Now that the dust is settling after Monday night and Newcastle United's title winning performance at Home Park, it's still worth repeating some of the praise that has came the way of Plymouth Argyle Football Club in the last couple of days.
I understand that some Plymouth fans weren't too happy about their club playing We Are The Champions followed by Local Hero and the Blaydon Races.
In the face of relegation and after what Newcastle endured last term, going down is a sickly feeling.
But as far as Plymouth fans are concerned, I think that your club done the right thing by acting is such a dignified manner with the music and the banner before hand.
We can all learn something from that.
As already stated the welcome Newcastle fans got in Plymouth was nothing short of sensational and a great way to go out (apart from QPR of course) in the Championship.
Kevin Nolan summed it up when he said that some of the welcomes for Newcastle hadn't been so nice and I agree with that.
You expect home sides to make it tough for you in football but there was still something refreshing about Plymouth's attitude and their team still started the game well enough and gave it their all - they were just beaten by a better side on the night.
I hope that Plymouth can 'Do a Newcastle' next season and bounce back first time.
And after seeing how well the Plymouth fans supported their team, all through the season on long haul trips to boot, if England get the nod for the World Cup I could not think of a more worthy bunch of people to be hosts, well apart from the Geordies of course!
Football needs the Plymouth Argyles of the world and if they do get the nod for World Cup duty, I don't think this will be the last success story about the way the Pilgrims go about their business.
