Plymouth Argyle tell supporters to stop abusing manager Derek Adams

Plymouth Argyle have called on their supporters to stop abusing manager Derek Adams and the players.

The League One strugglers released a club statement this morning, with many fans hoping to find out that the boss had been sacked, however it turned out to be about the behaviour of the Green Army.

The club’s statement said that they “welcome the passion and enthusiasm of our loyal supporters” and that “our many fans are entitled to have a voice”.

It went on to read: “Occasionally, though, the passion and enthusiasm oversteps the mark and the voice becomes unacceptably abusive.

“We are also a family club, committed to making Home Park a place that is free from racism, intimidation, victimisation or harassment, and which is inclusive for all.

“Everyone at the club shares the frustration of the majority of the Green Army regarding our start to the season, and we expect that to be reflected in complaint and criticism.”

Three weeks ago, after they were defeated 3-2 by Doncaster, the Argyle boss revealed he was disappointed at the abuse he and his squad received.

In their last game, Argyle went from 2-1 up to lose 3-2 against Burton Albion, leaving them bottom of League One with just 7 points from 14 games, exactly the same after the same amount of games for last season before they miraculously finished just outside the playoffs.


After the club released their statement, fans were left venting out their anger although there were some in support of what Plymouth had to say – check out that reaction on the next page.
