The trend of clubs falling down the divisions seems to be becoming a common theme in modern football, and one team to have suffered the indignity of multiple relegations is Plymouth Argyle.
In the mid noughties, The Pilgrims comfortably sat mid table in the Championship, and the club had serious ambitions of launching a Premier League bid.
Things, however, dramatically took a turn for the worse.
Back to back relegations in 2010 and 2011 killed Argyle’s top flight dreams, and the Devon club found themselves in the bottom tier of the English Football League.
Six long years have passed, but Argyle are finally on their way back.
Promotion this season will see the club play in the third tier next season, and fans will hope another promotion campaign is in reach.
Manager Derek Adams will know how difficult it will be to do this, and will have to work extremely hard to bring the right players into the club next season.
Adams may look to the division they are leaving to bolster his squad, and could a swoop on local rivals, Exeter City, really be an option for the manager?
Here we take a look at the Exeter player Plymouth should move for.
David Wheeler has been phenomenal for The Grecians this season.
The wide man has found the net on no less than 16 occasions, and has been pivotal in Exeter’s push for a play-off place.
A former youngster at newly promoted, Brighton and Hove Albion, £128k-rated Wheeler turned to the non league game to kick start his career once released by the south coast club, and fought his way back into league football.
Wheeler would be an excellent addition to any League One side, as his ability to provide goals from midfield is an extremely rare and sought after talent.
Wheeler recently signed a new contract to remain with the club beyond the end of the season, but if Exeter were to fail in their own promotion bid, could the players head by turned by a move up the divisions?
Only time will tell, but Adams would do well to add a player of Wheeler’s immense quality to his side.
