    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.

    The calling in of the decision can have nothing whatsoever to do with legitimacy. It can only be due to the stench of Boris currying votes in order to bolster his desire to be the next leader of the Tory party.
    Outrageous, shameful, corrupt… and we think the Americans have a political problem?

    Actually Liam I am not that surprised, but then maybe I’m better placed to know a thing or two about Boris and UK politics. It is a setback, but not one we should be unduly worried about.

    Am currently in London so heard about this almost as soon as it happened. Could not sleep last night and still have mixed emotions of shock and anger. I really thought Boris was just going to rubber-stamp the application, given he is not going to be in the job much longer. Now it seems he is trying to help out his Tory mates in the NIMBY land of Wandsworth. The club have done everything in the right and proper way only for one person to behave in such an appalling manner. Is it because we did not bribe the right people, in the same way the FFA were naïve in the World Cup bid? Nevertheless we must keep fighting for the injustice of 2002 to be put right. In other words “In Erik, We Trust”!

    The Mayor of London regally shafted the Dons on the Plough Lane ground planning application. Despite Merton Council’s unanimous approval and his very own GLA planning department’s advice, Boris Johnson has called in the planning application and will now act as the local planning authority and begin the consultation process again before a decision is made. The problem is by the time that takes place Boris Johnson will no longer be mayor and will have handed it on to his successor after mayoral elections. Earliest indications are that the new application process may not begin until July. Another setback, and one the Dons have frequently confronted and beaten in the past and will have to do so yet again. Nothing has come easy for Wimbledon/AFC Wimbledon. Interested in others thoughts….

    I see Bayo can’t even play for 90 mins in the development squad now. Oh dear. How the mighty have fallen.

    Until Tom Elliott came on we struggled to keep the ball up front. His addition was the game changer. He won headers and brought others into play, something we really struggled with.

    I must add that the Kingsmeadow pitch is pretty dreadful. It doesn’t help our playing style.
