1960: The culmination of an extraordinary week. After an excellent League Cup draw at Villa Park (and a record 9-0 defeat against Stoke in the league), Argyle held top-flight Aston Villa to a 0-0 scoreline at the end of 90 minutes of the League Cup replay. With the game due to enter extra-time, and with the prospect of a third match at a neutral ground (no penalties then), the referee abandoned the game because torrential rain had turned the pitch into a morass of mud. Argyle claimed that the replay should be replayed; Villa wanted the third attempt at a neutral venue. The Football League Management Committee had to intervene and ruled in the Pilgrims' favour. Villa won the tie 5-3 two months later.

1973: Another of Argyle's great victories; in the fifth round of the League Cup: Birmingham City 1 Argyle 2 (Welsh and Davey). Argyle continued their astonishing sequence of away victories at tier 1 clubs in a match staged on a midweek afternoon because of the power crisis. With Burnley and Queens Park Rangers slayed in previous rounds, it was the Blues' (including Trevor Francis) turn to suffer a rampant Argyle and their jubilant fans.

2006: Plymouth Argyle Football Company Ltd and The Council of The City of Plymouth exchanged contracts for the purchase of Home Park. Reported as the day that Argyle took ownership, this was actually not the case; the transfer of the absolute freehold title was completed five weeks later. Five years later, in December 2011, the property was transferred back to the Council, a crucial step in the rescue of the club.
