    Hi Dave, hi John.
    Yes, I am fully up to speed about the debenture scheme and have done the survey giving it a positive vote. I reckon it will be perfect for me for the coming season and also for other Dons fans based outside the UK. Most people I have talked to are in favour and I think SD and her gang are definitely going to go for it. It might…[Read more]

    League One decision day was supposed to be today,but just read on BBC that it has been put off until tomorrow. So we will know the outcome on Wednesday morning Oz time.
    Everything pointing to points per game with play offs going ahead. So the Done should be safe from relegation.

    Thanks for the update and the chat Rob.
    Truly a historic day, given the timing of the announcement 18 years ago.
    A day that knocked the wind out of me. I left work in a daze and went to FA HQ in Soho Square that day, even though I knew there was nothing I could do.
    But from that dark day, we have shown the world “WE ARE WIMBLEDON”

    Hi Rob, hi everyone.
    Hope all Dons fans are keeping safe and well.
    Today is Easter Sunday. On Friday we should have been playing Sunderland at home. I had planned to be there as part of my annual spring trip to the UK. My biggest problem a few months ago was getting a ticket for the game as it would surely have been a full house.
    Now the football…[Read more]

    Hi All, been quiet on here recently, so thanks to John and Colum for their recent contributions.
    As I write, it is just before our away game at Rotherham. As important as that is, it is even more important to focus on something else, namely the success of the Plough Lane bond. I’m absolutely amazed we are so close to £5m. I chucked in £2K as I a…[Read more]

    Very disappointed, but in a funny way, not surprised by the latest development. O always thought the financing of the new stadium would be problematic. The crowd funding, to which several of us in Australia contributed, was never going to raise enough money. It was designed, I think, to reduce the level of debt we would have by taking out the…[Read more]

    Another Saturday, another defeat for the Dons. And, yet again, a loss by only one goal. And another game where we played well for half a game.

    As for Wallygate, I think it might be a blessing in disguise. Hard to see Wally Downes coming back, so I think we will see GH in charge for the rest of the season.

  • liamwimbo replied to the topic The Lounge in the forum WDSA Forum 9 months, 3 weeks ago

    Coventry away? What is the best we can expect?
    Early days still but we desperately need a win.

  • liamwimbo replied to the topic The Lounge in the forum WDSA Forum 10 months, 1 week ago

    Yesterday’s game at home to Wycombe was the last of my annual trip to see the Dons.
    Unfortunately the four games I’ve seen have resulted in two draws and two defeats.
    It is still early days but the general mood is one of gloom and hard to foresee anything other than a season of struggle similar to last year. Most of the squad don’t look good…[Read more]

    Still feeling gutted after the defeat on Tuesday night. Over the 90 minutes, we probably didn’t deserve to win but we certainly deserved a point. Even an Ipswich fan told me we were unlucky after the game.
    For the first 60 minutes, we out-fought the opposition and kept them to only one chance. They dominated the last 30 minutes so the equaliser…[Read more]

    Three games played and only one point on the board. I’ve been to both home games and it’s hard to find many positives. We could have nicked a point against Rotherham but poor defending late on let us down.
    Against Accrington Stanley, a draw was a fair result. The most disappointing aspect of that game was looking second best against ten men for…[Read more]

    Not long until the season starts. I think the goal again is survival. Defence looks solid, midfield OK without being outstanding, but reckon we might struggle up front.
    As always, it will be interesting.
    Currently in the UK so got 3 home games and possibly Ipswich away.

    Hi John and Rob,

    I expect to be at the ground about 1.45 but need to go inside about 2.30 as I am in the Rygas.

    Let’s hope we are out of the bottom four by 5pm tonight 🤞

  • liamwimbo replied to the topic The Lounge in the forum WDSA Forum 1 year, 2 months ago

    As everyone has already said on other forums, I wish to thank Erik Samuelson for all his hard work as CEO and especially for turning the dream of a return to Plough Lane into a reality. Hopefully I will be able to thank him in person at some point in the next two games. COYDs

    Yesterday was the first of three games that I will be seeing in the hope of witnessing the Great Escape. The Dons started very brightly and we’re all over Stanley for the first 20 minutes so it was no surprise when the Pig scored after a good cross by Seaton. However the players then went off the boil and yet another awful piece of defending by…[Read more]

    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]

  • liamwimbo replied to the topic The Lounge in the forum WDSA Forum 1 year, 4 months ago

    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.
