    Hi Pete, hi John, hi Colum.
    Thanks for posting on here despite the poor results. Looks like we have to start preparing for League Two football next season.
    I may be over in April so possibly we can drown our sorrows over a few beers.
    Take care
    Liam

    Bit of a bizarre feeling to be optimistic when the Dons are bottom of League One. But the change in management has certainly seemed to help in recent weeks. Not only has there been a decent return in terms of points, but also the bonus of reaching the 4th round of the Cup. West Ham at home might not be the money spinner we hoped for, but at least…[Read more]

    Hi Colum, thanks for the mention. We are looking forward to games for the first time in ages. Would obviously love us to win tonight but a point wouldn’t be the end of the world. Hope you had a good Christmas and best wishes for 2019. COYDs

    After all the doom and gloom of recent months and the debate over Ardley In/Out, we finally have something to cheer about. Two wins in a row have lifted us off the bottom of the table. No doubt it will be a tough task to keep this going but we now have hope of staying up going into the second half of the season. The big change on the playing…[Read more]

    Must admit I was more surprised at the news than I should be. I thought the board were going to stick by him through thick and thin, but then again maybe he had his own mind set by the end.
    Like Dave Anderson and Terry Brown before him, he brought the club forward and for that, we should be grateful. I hope he will be made welcome back at KM like…[Read more]

    OK. We need to take stock, especially in light of Dirty Dave’s comments a few days ago. Basically we are not very good at the moment, in fact we’re quite shit. But we scrapped our way to a win this morning, when everything pointed to a classic FA Cup upset. Comments on the FB page have become ridiculous. Never thought anything could be worse than…[Read more]

    Hi John, thanks for the intelligent and reasoned response. We would all agree that preserving our league status is of paramount importance. If that means sacking Ardley, then so be it.

    I’ve given a lot of thought to Wimbledon’s current situation over the last 24 hours, both before and after yesterday’s defeat at Plymouth. Too much time on my hands as a result of jetlag on the way back to Oz! Obviously I am disappointed at our current form and I began to wonder whether it is time for Neil Ardley to be replaced. But then I thought…[Read more]

    I wrote my article for the current newsletter just after the Scunthorpe game. Basically it said we started the season well but things were going pear-shaped by the time of that game. That now seems like a massive understatement. In particular, I was concerned about the forward line, not that we don’t have problems elsewhere. Hanson and Appiah are…[Read more]

    Very welcome three points today against an extremely poor Gillingham team. First half we dominated possession but only real chance was Hanson hitting the bar. Most common comment at HT was that we should really be beating such a rubbish team. Thankfully Pigott took advantage early in the second half to put the Dons ahead. Apart from a late flurry,…[Read more]

    Heading off to deepest Kent shortly to see the Dons at Gillingham. Looks like I chose a good one to miss last week. Was at Charlton midweek and the Dons played OK with a team mostly of Fringe players. My big hope is that we start converting chances. COYDs

    Can only reiterate Pete and John’s feelings. Outplayed probably the best team in the league in the first half and got nothing out of it. To rub salt into the wound, the highlights on telly showed nothing but the goals so any casual observer would conclude that it was a fair result 😠
    At least, the common consensus after the game is that this team…[Read more]

    Today against Sunderland is undoubtedly the most anticipated home fixture of the season. Has somewhat of a Cup Tie feel about it as Wimbledon will be the underdogs, so getting even a point would be a good result. Thought the Dons were unlucky against Walsall. They played nearly as well as the previous three league games, but we’re undone by…[Read more]

    Another impressive performance by the Dons yesterday to secure a point at one of the better teams in the division. Was not a great game but the team worked very hard for each other and restricted Barnsley to just a few shots. For me, Will Nightingale was MotM, but one thing about the current line up is that it is very much a team performance.…[Read more]

    Tremendous night out at Fratton Park yesterday evening. The Dons displayed great character to come back from 1-0 down to win 2-1. Starting line-up bit different from Saturday with McDonald at centre half, Garrett LB, Wordsworth and Wagstaff in midfield, and Hanson up front being different.
    Dons totally dominated the first 20 minutes but Pompey…[Read more]

    Quick match report. Dons much the better team. Lots of crosses into the box from Pinnock and Bircham but failed capitalise on them. Hit the post in a goalmouth scramble near the end of the first half. Barch was particularly good and got MotM. Defence stood up well but to be honest Coventry didn’t threaten much.
    Denied a penalty by the ref in…[Read more]

    BTW, John, I believe congratulations are in order after your recent nuptials ☺️

    Hi John, the picture was from Sandbanks beach from last weekend. And not going to first game so won’t be experiencing the delights of Fleetwood or Blackpool anytime soon 😏

  • liamwimbo replied to the topic The Lounge in the forum WDSA Forum 6 months ago

    Like many others, I was feeling rather pessimistic about a month ago about how the Dons would perform in the coming season.
    However the combination of seven new signings and some decent pre-season results has been most encouraging.
    So far I have only been to one game – the first friendly v Reading. It was a very entertaining game, which is…[Read more]

    Crucial game coming up on Friday. I reckon 3 wins will be just enough to keep us up, possibly on goal difference. But 2 of those need to be against the likes of Fleetwood. So squeaky bum time for us Dons fans. Best wishes to all of you Wombles over Easter.
