Daily Update

Argyle appear a step closer to signing Warren Feeney after Oldham terminated the Northern Irish international's contract. Former Leeds forward Tresor Kandol is also meant to be in negotiations with the Pilgrims. The Congolese international, who has played for a number of Football League clubs during the past 10 years, would certainly add a physical presence up front.

The Pilgrims "temporary" 2011-12 shirts have turned up at Home Park, which appears to have excited the club to the extent that they took a photo of the shirt before stopping to take the label off (or find a room with a decent amount of light). Anyhow, this kit will be used until the 125th anniversary strip is launched in October, and looks perfectly decent - the Bond Timber logo is a welcome change to the Ginsters 'splodge' and the club badge seems to be embroidered on the shirt, which is an improvement on the nasty iron-on emblem that adorned last season's Adidas effort.

There's an interview with Peter Reid and Fletch on the Sky Sports website here. Speaking of which, Sky have predicted the Pilgrims to finish 21st in League 2. They're not alone; the Guardian have the Greens down in the bottom half of the league come May on their Football League blog.

Apparently 600 Shrewsbury tickets have already been sold, and the Shrews are advising against planning to pay on the day as if the away end fills up (it holds 1,600) then travelling fans will not be permitted into other parts of the ground. Helpfully for exiles, the Shrewsbury ticket office are happy to sell away tickets over the phone to Argyle fans, as the Home Park box office is unable to take credit or debit card payments whilst the Pilgrims are in administration. According to this thread on PASOTI, they're also cheaper than buying from Argyle.
