Plymouth Argyle fans have a right to be frustrated, says James Brent
OWNER and chairman James Brent has admitted Plymouth Argyle's fans have 'every right' to be frustrated by the League Two club's recent results.
The Pilgrims have dropped to 20th position in the table after picking up only one point from their last seven games.
That has led to increasing calls from supporters for Carl Fletcher to be replaced as Argyle manager.
Brent told Herald Sport: "The results we have had have been disappointing but I think it requires careful thought to work with Carl on how to get it right.

"From my perspective, in the majority of the games I have seen we have been the stronger side, but we have not been able to turn that into wins. That's the challenge for us all to work out."
Argyle have won only four of their 20 league games this season, with the last one coming on October 20 when they beat Rochdale 3-1 at Home park.
Brent said: "The fans have every right and justification to feel very disappointed and very frustrated by the results.
"That view is totally shared by the board and myself. What we will do is try to do the right thing rather than the popular thing."
Fletcher added to his squad with the loan signing of 31-year-old Bournemouth midfielder Mark Molesley last week.
Molesley made his debut for the Pilgrims in their 1-0 defeat by Chesterfield at Home Park on Saturday.
Football League clubs, Argyle included, cannot now make any further recruits until the January transfer window opens.
Finances are tight at Home Park because of below-budget attendances for home games this season but Brent has not ruled out some more signings then.
He said: "We will be having a discussion with the manager well in advance of the January transfer window to see where he thinks the gaps are in the squad and what his recommendations are.
"The board will then consider that."
Argyle have five more matches in League Two before the end of 2012, starting against York City at Home Park on Saturday, December 8.
That will be followed by a trip to Devon rivals Exeter City, who are currently in ninth spot in the table, on December 15.
