Will finances undermine Plymouth's title bid?

Share/Save

Plymouth are currently riding high at the top of League 2, but this blog article argues that finances will ultimately derail their title bid.   Their manager made a conscious decision to go for quality rather than quantity in the squad and there doesn't seem to be any money for additions in the January loan window.

Suspensions and injuries could take their toll, but equally they could ride their luck.  The size of the city certainly merits a position higher than League 2.

The two unfortunates blog took a sceptical view of the club's finances, although that was eighteen months ago and the club broke even in the last financial year.
