‘So unprofessional’, ‘Work of fiction’ – These fans react to Plymouth Argyle’s match report against Bradford City

Plymouth Argyle felt they deserved something from their recent encounter with Bradford City, so much so their official club report read more like something from a fan-site.

Plymouth had two men sent off as they went down 2-1 at Valley Parade, a result which dents their automatic promotion hopes and helps fuel belief the Bantams can make the top seven. It was a fiery clash, not short of controversy, but the Pilgrims media team felt aggravated enough to urge fans to disregard the result.

“Read nothing into this result,” they wrote.

“Argyle’s defeat was as unjust as they come and should in no way detract from their performance, nor from their prospects of winning promotion from Sky Bet League Two.

“The game, played on a mess of a pitch, was defined by the sending-off of Argyle captain Gary Sawyer towards the end of a first-half dominated by the Pilgrims.”

Naturally, this has drawn plenty of attention on Twitter. One of the key rules of a club’s official media account is to remain relatively impassive, perhaps a little controversial on live Twitter feeds, but certainly not so confrontational when dealing with a match report.

That’s certainly the opinion of these supporters, who feel perhaps the Green Army could do with lessons in how to lose gracefully, or at least how to write match reports.
