Conor Hourihane: Scored the winning goal

Three goals in 10 minutes decided the game, with Tyler Harvey and Conor Hourihane winning it for the Pilgrims.

Chris Zebroski had equalised for Newport but Plymouth regained the lead and held on for the win.

Harvey headed the visitors in front after 20 minutes. The midfielder started off the move by sending a pass out wide to Nathan Thomas, who whipped in an inviting ball for the 18-year-old to nod in his first goal for the Pilgrims.

Zebroski had the away supporters fuming when he equalised just seven minutes later. The ex-Plymouth striker broke down the left side of the penalty area and slotted home, then put his finger to his lips, silencing the travelling fans.

However, they were to have the last laugh when Hourihane put them back in front after half-an-hour. The midfielder fired into the bottom corner from a low cross.

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

Blatter 'under investigation'

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
