Former Plymouth boss Neil Warnock says he will do whatever he can to help Argyle after the club was issued with a winding up petition.HM Revenue & Customs have given the club until 8 December to clear their debts which relate to unpaid tax. [LNB]Warnock, who now manages QPR, told BBC Cornwall: "If I can use my experience and help them in any way I will do. [LNB]"I've spoken to a couple of people and said 'please get involved, please help Plymouth Argyle' - it's a good club." [LNB]Warnock, who has a second home in Cornwall, added: "They've just got to get over this difficult period. [LNB]"I'm convinced that they can and I know that there's people around and about." [LNB]Plymouth Argyle and a related company, Home Park Properties, were both issued with winding-up petitions by HM Revenue & Customs in October.[LNB] I sincerely hope that you pull through this owlonwheels The club recorded a £2.8m loss for the 2008/09 financial year and were previously issued with a winding-up order for unpaid tax by HM Revenue & Customs last season. [LNB]Warnock spent two years as manager at Home Park from 1995-97, leading Argyle to promotion to English football's second tier via a 1-0 play-off win over Darlington at Wembley. [LNB]He has recent experience of managing a club under financial constraints, having been with Crystal Palace when they were placed in administration in January. [LNB]He said: "In the modern game, especially at the top levels, money is so important and it's always been difficult to get the right people to invest in Plymouth. [LNB]"Over the years, they've had people who've said they'll do this and do that but until the money's on the table I don't think anybody know who has got what. [LNB]"I think they've been let down a little bit - the board and people like that - over the last few years, so I do hope they sort it out because it's not a nice situation." [LNB]Warnock added: "As long as they've got good people around then they'll sort it out." [LNB]On the pitch, Argyle sit 15th in League One, just three points above the relegation zone, and just 4,960 fans watched them beat Dagenham & Redbridge 2-1 on Tuesday, their lowest gate of the season.
