A match that matters to everyone
IT IS not every day that The Herald devotes our front page, as well as our back page, to an Argyle match.
But these are extraordinary times. Argyle is much more than just a football club, it is a vital institution within this city and the fate of all of us is closely tied to that of the Pilgrims.
Whether or not you are a fan or whether you care a jot about football you should be cheering for Argyle this Saturday and during the vital games that follow.
If Argyle is relegated from the football league it will not just be fans that suffer – Plymouth will be the real loser.

Today is not the first time The Herald has called on fans to lift the team from the terraces. We want the opposition to fear the Green Army, not our own manager and players. Criticism is fine but during those vital 90 minutes the team needs to know we are all on the same side.
The Herald makes no apology for being Argyle to the core – we will tell it as it is but no-one should have any doubt where our allegiance lies.
However, our call today goes further than an appeal to the loyal fans who turn out week after week. We need thousands more to swell the numbers and add their voice to the Home Park roar and help our team secure a win which will give hope not just to the club but the whole city.
Bill Shankly famously once quipped: "Football's not a matter of life and death: it's more important than that." This Saturday, it will certainly feel like he was right.
