    Think we’re cooked. The latest loss – the 10th at home this season – leaves the Dons stranded nine points from the second-bottom team and 10 from the relegation zone. Wimbledon have lost five of their last six (the other drawn) as teams around them eke out points. It was the manner of the…[Read more]

    Where did that come from? Listened to the TalkSport call (not bad either) and was astonished and thrilled to hear the Dons score FOUR times to tonk the Premier Leaguers West Ham. You could obviously sense that Wally/Glyn had them up for the challenge, the Hammers were not wanting it as much (particularly for the first hour) and when that fourth…[Read more]

    Early days, but the last-minute 3-2 win over Fleetwood Town in the FA Cup has considerably lifted spirits in and around the club. The Dons are into the 4th round for the first time in their AFC Wimbledon guise and several notable things have happened in the Wally Downes/Glyn Hodges managerial takeover. There are more opportunities for the…[Read more]

    Think we can take it as read Wally will be doing some shopping in the transfer window and expect a substantial team overhaul with many, if not all, the loan players being returned to their parent clubs. Maybe the club might also try to offload Deji Oshilaja to raise some much needed cash for recruitment. The 0-2 defeat at Charlton more or less…[Read more]

    It’s been a shitfest so far (at least on social media), but expect some clarity on the announcement of the new manager, hopefully early this week.
    Close friends have shed some light as fans (on social media) get wound up over the delay and make wild assertions….

    And this from long-time…[Read more]

    Little sign of turning the corner in the undistinguished last gasp 1-0 FA Cup win over Haringey Borough, 18th in seventh tier Isthmian League Premier Division, but a positive: £67k TV + £36k prize money + 1/3 of last night’s gate (2,710) to go with £10k for progressing in the Checkatrade Trophy. Don’t know if Neal Ardley will be around then but…[Read more]

    Martin,

    I have checked the Saturday morning (AEDT) TV listings, BeInSports and ESPN and it is not scheduled, so suspect no FA Cup coverage in Australia. (Maybe a blessing!)

    There is a dangerous drift permeating our club. Six straight defeats, players accused by coaching staff of letting down their manager, an inexorable slide into the relegation zone amid fears of being cast adrift from the rest of the league and the manager seemingly helpless to arrest the slide. And then there’s the emotional toll it’s leaving on…[Read more]

    Most disturbing if true and in context….

    Think it’s now a matter of when not if Neal Ardley is replaced as manager after yet another horrible yet predictable result to fellow relegation rivals Bristol Rovers. There were reports of a tearful Ardley after the match, heightening speculation that he was about to quit, but a subsequent interview on BBC London didn’t back that up. Basically,…[Read more]

    What’s the key word in this unsourced piece from the Evening Standard?

    Neal Ardley will be given time to turn things around at AFC Wimbledon.
    Wimbledon are just outside the League One relegation zone after three straight defeats and Ardley admitted he is under growing pressure after Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Portsmouth.
    But it is understood W…[Read more]

    As soon as I saw the result I knew there was going to be big trouble for Neal Ardley. Sure enough, reading the various Twitter and forums there was an outpouring of disgust over the form of the team, culminating in the loss to the struggling Bantams at home. What took me was the views of people who normally would be supportive of NA, not now. To…[Read more]

    Had my first long look at Wimbledon on TV in the League Cup tie with the Hammers. Flying start with the impressive Joe Pigott heading home a corner after 75 seconds but the match swung in the 18th minute after Rod McDonald’s second yellow card, leaving the Dons a man down for 70 minutes against a Premier League side. The Dons resisted bravely,…[Read more]

    Certainly can howl over the handball ‘non’ penalty and the linesman flagging offside for Sunderland’s equaliser as yet again refereeing decisions went against the Dons. Yet another salient early season stat is the poor finishing by our forwards. Against Coventry City Wimbledon had 13 shots (BBC) for no return; against Walsall 21 shots for one goal…[Read more]

    The buses have been pulling in with Neal Ardley making his seventh signing in 22-year-old centre-back Terell Thomas from Wigan Athletic. Thomas has only limited experience on loan at Sutton United and Woking, so suspect the gaffer will have another more battle-hardened CB in line or, if not, then the Dons are going to be short of nous at the back…[Read more]

    Have been without the internet for three weeks (!) and it’s back on today and I’m fast catching up. So it seems with Neal Ardley with three signings in a week and all of them looking sound choices. So far six players in and maybe four more to come. There is a pattern with Ardley’s recruitment: faster, industrious players and aiming to get in…[Read more]

    The Dons finally sign a player – six weeks after the final game of last season – Mitch Pinnock from non-league Dover Athletic, and lose Darius Charles sideways to Wycombe Wanderers with reports of Jon Meades is heading to Plymouth Argyle. Pinnock says his strong point “is putting crosses into the box”. That was an area the team struggled with last…[Read more]

    We have made an offer for a young left-winger from non-league. A fee will be involved and another L1 club is interested, but understand the player doesn’t want to go to that non-London club and his agent is comfortable negotiating with the Wimbledon management. If terms are agreeable it could all be done this week. The club also have two strikers…[Read more]
