Danny Salman: Plymouth Argyle were lucky at Morecambe
WE'VE got a new year, a new manager and a win, which is a good start, but there are still things to work on.
Apart from the first 20 minutes, when we scored two goals, it wasn't the best display and we were a little lucky, I felt, that Morecambe didn't get something from the game.
However, the most important thing was that we got the three points and got out of the relegation zone.
It was as though it underlined that 2012 was over and there was a new start in 2013.
Last season, when we were close to the relegation zone, many people said that it didn't matter how it was achieved, as long as we got the result.
Unfortunately, that seems to be what is going to happen this season – it doesn't matter how we do it, as long as we win.
I can understand that, but it is a shame.
For the past five years, supporters are always hoping that Argyle are going to do well at the beginning of the season.
Then halfway through the season, we go back to not caring how we get a result, just as long as we get it.
I do feel for the supporters, but they keep on turning up.
The one thing that I want for the supporters of Plymouth Argyle is that they have a more relaxed year in 2013 and they can go to Home Park and enjoy their football.
However, it is going to be tough, because there are teams around us who have played a couple of games less than us.
The one question that people in the street keep asking me is whether John Sheridan is the right man for the job.
I have to say that, not having a crystal ball, I really can't answer that question.
I never do talk about that subject, because there's no way of telling what's going to happen.
I'm afraid it's a matter of giving it time, because only time will tell whether Sheridan is the right man for the job.
Either it goes well and we get out of trouble at the bottom of the table, or it doesn't.
Success, I'm afraid, will be measured in terms of whether we stay up or not, not getting into the play-offs or getting promoted.
What would please me is that the team gets into a position where we are comfortable and we don't have to go through the pressure of a relegation battle like we did last year.
