    The Lounge

    I’ve decided to spruce up the web-site a wee bit (even with our new logo – any comments?). Another new feature is the single thread forum, so you can jump on and have your say, ask a question or just read what is being said. As I always say the forum is only as strong as what you make of it, so I would urge you to contribute and regularly to keep it all worthwhile. BTW, if you want to check something in the old forum it is now archived and the link is below… Okay let’s hear from you …

    Looking for the old forum? You can view the read-only archived version here.

    Great news on the stadium. And now we need to secure the services of Vinnie Jones with his hod and bricks (as he seems to be not longer Hollywood material) to lay the Foundation Stone and take us as far as the damp-proof coarse. Perhaps Sam the Man Allardyce will be purchasing one of our new and lo-cost housing units. Or, perhaps as we slip into a relegation spot, our brave executive can make a bold move to appoint him as new Gaffer (as sort of new Joe Kinnear). If the lads cannot win the next game on the basis of our good news, then we ought to be confused.

    Joy, ecstasy, relief – just wow! The Dons really are coming home. Only a Judicial Review could thwart us, but the expense and legal reasons to go down that route make it highly, highly unlikely. I think this is really going to happen now. Looking forward to the trip to Coventry even more now. A raucously happy away crowd just needs three points for icing on this stadium news cake. Joy, joy.

    Yep, I think this is finally it my Antipodean friends. You may not be able to book your flights over yet, but you can certainly start saving for them…

    Maybe – just maybe – we can start to believe that we’ll have a stadium back where we belong. There is no mention of an appeal process, so I expect there isn’t one and the Minister’s decision is final.

    Now if we can only put the icing on the cake with three points tomorrow.

    Do you know what? I was at KM yesterday and camne away echoing most of what others have said about the game. Having watched the highlights though, I’ve changed my mind.

    Yes Shrewsbury were woeful, especially in the first 45, but they came out in the second half with a point to prove. Ardley had warned the players this was the case, but we didn’t deal with it. In the end a draw was a fair result.

    Even in the first half they looked fairly lively up front. Toney was their best outlet, but his two petulant bookings put an early end to his afternoon. He could have gone earlier than that, as his dissent after his first booking could on another day have been followed by another. As the second half wore on, he became a distant figure, ending is his late challenge in Shea.

    Elsewhere there were lots of positives. A well worked corner routine bringing our goal, Elliott was largely unplayable up front, and a good defensive display. Their goal was unfortunate, although their player should not have been allowed the freedom of the midfield before shooting.

    I’ve also changed my mind about the referee’s decisions. Perhaps Elliott could have got a penalty – I definitely thought so at the time – but I can see now why the ref didn’t give it. In all I think the ref had a fair, if not outstanding, game. It was made difficult by a very negative Shrewsbury side.

    Nine points out of nine games is not a bad return, especially considering the opposition to date. It adds more importance to getting three points on Wednesday though.

    Just watch the highlights and what I saw Shrewsbury had more of the play, was our play so bad that they cut it all out.Yes its 2 points lost we should have put them under more pressure in the firsthalf and put the game out of there reach,but we are still learning and i think we will get there.Now for Coventry on Wednesday by all accounts they played well at Gillingham so if you think it will be a walk over think again.1-0 to Coventry.
