What other young players have proved Argyle wrong in recent years?
I can only think of Isaac Vassell.
Good question, I seem to remember there being a few but can’t recall who !
Ryan Leonard is one that springs to mind. And what were the circumstances of Ashley Barnes departure? Was he released ?
There are a few more who seemed to leave for very little when the club were struggling with finances- Jack Stephens, Sam Gallagher etc.
Barnes was sold for £250,000 to Brighton.
Leonard was released when Argyle were in League One, on the decline and in financial trouble. His contract must have been a tiny amount of money to clear off the wage bill. In hindsight given our journey to League Two, and Leonard's pedigree, his release has to be viewed as a mistake. But it pales in comparison with the other club decisions being made at that time.
