    Astute observations as always Windlesham. I offer a couple of tweaks if I may.
    I think McDonald will go. I thought he did just enough in defence without being impressive. I personally believe this new giant (Rueben?) we’ve given a pro contract to will be the benchwarmer this season, and may get his chances if WaG decide to put Will in that sweeper…[Read more]

    Listening in from South Carolina it struck me that while our fragility at defending leads is beyond exasperation, the appalling Sunday league refereeing standards have once again played into the hands of the FA’s general dislike of us… or perhaps I’ve spent too long in the land of conspiracy theories? Nevertheless, analytics will show that over…[Read more]

    Hmmm… My response to onyadon’s question could be “Ask me that when we have 51 points…” but there’s no doubting the team have a more positive outlook these days. Without mentioning names (they are routinely missing from the team sheet or have gone to foreign climes anyway), WD has clearly either sussed out what and who makes the squad ‘tick’…[Read more]

    What a to do. I share the consensus view here about who and what, but I offer a conundrum…
    What if WD is taking the gamble of sacrificing what was surely a winnable game in order to maintain the fitness of his key player/s for the fight against relegation? What if WD’s contract has a clause in it that has L1 survival as the carrot for a longer…[Read more]

    Let’s face it. With the money we’ve made from the cup run, most of the players know they’ll be gone at the end of the season. Thus, there’s no point risking an injury when there’s a cup payout waiting at the end of the week to tide them over while they hunt for some other gullible club during the summer. I’m certain this is why the standard of…[Read more]

    Well that’s that then guys. League Two here we come. With the worst record in League One, everyone around us getting better (with the possible exception of Rochdale), and now everyone above us with a game in hand, I really cannot see any way back for us. Yes, miracles do happen and I still hope for one, but to go down 3-0 at home to a team we only…[Read more]

    So… Wally Downes hasn’t even picked up a ball yet and he’s already been chastised for his use of Social Media.
    Jeez… another Donald Trump… that’s all we need.
    Apparently though, he does have a plan to turn our fortunes around…. this’ll hopefully be the ‘Plan B’ that NA never seemed to have. Unfortunately, playing the fishmongers in the…[Read more]

    Well, so long Mr NA. You did give us some good times and some great times and despite my frequent frustrations with your methods and decisions, you will be respected as the man that got us to L1. But I also think you probably did more to our internal structure than we may ever know. If you have a crowning achievement in your time with us then, I…[Read more]

    Well, there you have it… Eric has spoken.
    https://www.afcwimbledon.co.uk/news/2018/october/an-update-for-supporters-from-ceo-erik-samuelson/

    It’s clear from this that a change of management is not imminent. Yet, many will continue to believe that, contrary to Eric’s statement, NA HAS lost the squad’s respect and needs to go. (The twitter feeds…[Read more]

    A very good question Windlesham.
    My gut feel is that the youngsters in the group (ie Piggott) are being led by someone else within the group. I want to point the finger at either King or Wordsworth. People like Piggott have pretty much hit the big time in their career… he must know he’s the only one scoring, is popular with the fans etc etc.…[Read more]

    Well, break out the ‘Crazy Gang’ videos… Get Anthony Wordsworth to grab somebody’s nuts, and teach NA to shout “Kick the bl**dy ball” in traditional Kinnear fashion and all will be well…. just so long as Trotter and Soares are not ambling around midfield when the ball comes back at us. Frankly Wagstaff, Hartigan, and Pinnock look vastly…[Read more]

    Even during last seasons lows… and there were too many to count, I would still sign up to idontfollow, or, if at work, run a sneaky check on the Live updates when I could.
    Yet today, I just don’t have the heart to even bother checking until I get home tonight around 10pm GMT.
    For someone who has followed the club since 74/75, I think that’s…[Read more]

    There hasn’t been this sort of outpouring on WDSA for quite some time. Since I didn’t get to see the Bradford game on i(dont)follow, I thought I’d find the courage to watch the ‘Highlights’… (wow was there ever such a breach of the trade descriptions act!)
    For me, it really is down to NA now, no ifs or buts. He started the season with what…[Read more]

  • Devon Womble replied to the topic The Lounge in the forum WDSA Forum 7 months, 3 weeks ago

    Well that says a lot about our performance!
    I have to wonder when watching our lot get completely clueless (usually after some complex theories from NA) if they aren’t just being overloaded with too much clipboard tactics.
    Sure, there are the basics but, we’re not in the premier league, we just play football (or attempt to). Sometimes those…[Read more]

    I don’t know how many here are on Facebook but I offer this quote from a West Ham supporter who posted this on the Dons page:
    “…the score didn’t reflect the way you played and that Nightingale was a pain in the arse the second he came on the pitch.”

  • Devon Womble replied to the topic The Lounge in the forum WDSA Forum 8 months, 3 weeks ago

    I agree with the general comments about how much more ‘joyful’ it is to watch us play this season and on that basis a solid mid-table finish will be more than enough to satisfy me. However, based on the current rate of bad refereeing decisions, we will need more than just good team performances to cement that if this continues!
    As for a solution…[Read more]

    Well, despite the fact that we squandered lord knows how many chances, I have to hand it to the bent ref for missing another of the world’s great ‘hand of god’ moments on the Sunderland goal-line.
    On that basis, I award the Numpty Refs the point we should have had from the game.
    That makes it Dons 5pts – Refs 4pts.
    Just think where we’d be if we…[Read more]

    At the risk of being labelled an armchair critic (I accept rebukes from present company), that was poor. Yet what it did reveal (for me watching on ifollow) was that:
    1> McDonald had absolutely no control over the back four, who, irrespective of the two own goals, were almost completely dysfunctional as a unit. King knew that too and virtually…[Read more]

    If the game had taken place in the USA I doubt the Referee would have made it to the car…
    Today’s exploits by the pillock with the whistle also make we realise why there is no such things as transfer windows for Referees…. few of them would be worth a cent.
    AFCW 0 points, Referee 3 points… I shall be keeping tabs.
