Former Plymouth midfielder Dan Gosling is hoping the takeover of the club can be completed "and results will pick up soon".
The Newcastle man left Home Park for Everton in January 2008 and is sad to see the current problems facing Argyle.
Peter Reid's side sit bottom of League Two with only one point from six games and a possible strike by the club's players over unpaid wages was averted before Saturday's defeat at Burton.
"It's sad times for the club and all the fans down there as well," Gosling told Sportinglife.com after playing for the England Under-21s in the 4-1 win over Israel on Monday night.
"All the lads have moved on since I was there and Joe Mason (who joined Cardiff in the summer) who I get on really well with has now left.
"It's not a good feeling at the club at the minute but hopefully the takeover can get sorted out and results will pick up soon."
