    Hi Pete, hi John.
    Amazing what two wins can do. We may still be bottom of the table, but we are are back in touch with the other strugglers.
    Very relevant that most of our remaining games are against teams in the bottom half of the table. Six wins out of nine would probably be enough, but don’t want to tempt fate, so just let’s get 4 points (or…[Read more]

    So yesterday’s win over Doncaster keeps our hope of survival alive. Will probably need at least six and probably seven wins to stay up. Huge task, but not impossible given some of the teams we have yet to play. Must admit I wasn’t convinced that Wally Downes was the best appointment, but he has brought in some decent players and got rid of…[Read more]

    Hi Pete Good to know you are having a good time. I arrive back this weekend but I imagine that you will have left by then.
    Might see you in April. To witness the Great Escape ☺️🤞

    Hi Pete, glad you are enjoying yourself. South Australia is certainly a good place for wine. This time last week I was showing friends from the UK around the Barossa Valley. Try Coriole in McClaren Vale if you get a chance.
    Hope you manage to survive the heatwave coming on the weekend. Fingers crossed for the Dons on Saturday. Regards Liam.

    Hi Pete Liam here. Unfortunately I have had to go overseas at short notice so can’t make the 4th or 5th.
    Please try calling Paul Russell on 61417864996 if you want to chat with a fellow Dons fan. Or maybe post on the AFC Wimbledon International Facebook page. Once again apologies for not being able to see you.

    Hi Pete. Have woken up to another defeat this morning. Going to be almost impossible to survive.
    Either Monday 4th or Tuesday 5th is fine for me to meet up so whatever suits you.

    Hi Pete, Wednesday evening here and still pinching myself about last night’s result, especially after waking up early, seeing we conceded after 2 minutes then going back to sleep.
    So we still have hope, despite the precarious position we are in.

    I am free every night that you are here. Plus the other mad Dons fan here should also be able to…[Read more]

    Hey Pete, I live in Adelaide so yes we must meet up. What dates will you be here.

    As for the Dons, they seem like Dr Jekell and Mr Hyde. Just seen the highlights of the win at Walsall. The team looked impressive and apparently should have won by a bigger margin.

    But my brother was at the Burton game and his one word summation was…[Read more]

    Hi Pete, just watched the extended highlights of the game. You are in the footage right at the end wearing your yellow and blue wig. Very pleased for you and all Dons fans, after all the doom and gloom recently. And good to get a bit of revenge after the League Cup game. Dare we hope that we can still turn things around in the League? Imagine if…[Read more]

    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

  • liamwimbo replied to the topic The Lounge in the forum WDSA Forum 2 months, 3 weeks ago

    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]

  • liamwimbo replied to the topic The Lounge in the forum WDSA Forum 4 months, 2 weeks ago

    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]

  • liamwimbo replied to the topic The Lounge in the forum WDSA Forum 5 months, 2 weeks ago

    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]

  • liamwimbo replied to the topic The Lounge in the forum WDSA Forum 6 months, 2 weeks ago

    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]

  • liamwimbo replied to the topic The Lounge in the forum WDSA Forum 6 months, 2 weeks ago

    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
