Plymouth Argyle sacked manager Derek Adams with one game left to go as he led them to the inevitable relegation to League Two.

For supporters of Plymouth Argyle, the wait goes on. But behind the scenes at Home Park, the board of directors will be keeping everything crossed and hoping that their patience will pay off in the quest for a new manager.

It seems that Bury boss Ryan Lowe is very much their choice to succeed Derek Adams in the Home Park hotseat. He is young (40, to be precise), plays an exciting, attacking brand of football and has had success this year in guiding Bury to promotion from the division that Argyle will find themselves in next season.

Lowe seems to possess the credentials that chairman Simon Hallett wants in his new manager. But asking Lowe to up sticks and move some 300 miles from his family home is perhaps the biggest stumbling block.

Style of play:

Ryan Lowe implemented a tremendously attractive style of play at Gigg Lane. Young, dynamic, forward-thinking and successful – he ticks the very same boxes for them as he does for Hallett and the Pilgrims.

The Shakers were the top scorers in the division and they took the game to their opponents. He was able to get the best out of disgruntled players who were unhappy at not being paid. This suggests that he has man-management skills that are brilliant as he was able to see them through a tough spell in March and April and come out the other side with a promotion.

Can work with big name players:

At Gigg Lane, Bury had one of the best squads in the league on paper and he had to deal with big players who would have thought they were better than the division they were in.

Argyle will be in a similar situation next season as they look unlikely to lose many of their key players. Scott Wootton, Ruben Lameiras and Graham Carey are all players who are capable of playing at a higher level.

Lowe has proven that he has been able to get the best out of the big name players with the likes of Jay O’Shea, Nicky Adams and Jordan Rossiter at Gigg Lane.

If Plymouth Argyle want to be promoted at the first time of asking, Ryan Lowe has to be appointed at Home Park at all costs.
