|About that pitch invasion - Preview|
People did go on after Oldham though but got off much quicker than these days. Also Palace, in 99 (during the game too) amongst others, but agree when you've finished 15th odd it's a bit silly.
|But for the grace of God - Opposition profile|
Excellent article Clive - though I suspect some of it was a copy and paste from before - but well worth remembering.
I agree with what you say of Winkleman and how well he comes across, I didnt realise he admitted he was wrong how it happened - but he can say it from years into the future and having got his way to boot. Nevertheless he still blames Wimbledon fans in part.
You note 19K went to their game against leeds, I wonder though how many were Leeds fans both in terms of official away following and many more who simply bought home tickets if they had sold out their allocation.
MK is still a new club in many ways and it'll be interesting to see how it goes long term.
Debt tiny compared to many others but I guess if they can get into PL they will sell out all over with others simply clamering for tickets to PL games where United, Liverpool Spurs et al will come and visit.
|Ramsey feels the heat as QPR lose at Birmingham - report|
Excellent read Clive - not good to hear from Neil above of the behaviour in the away end - something of a concern.
Leaving all that aside and focusing on the NW appointment it made me think of TF and co having a from of Brittas Empire about them,l forever trying to do the right thing - "I have a dream" and deapie all the good intentions it all ends in disaster - as for CR I think he'll be gone by bonfire night.
|The People vs Gianni Paladini|
Guilty - the mere fact we were up to our eyes in a scandal that sullied the actual promotion party so that we found out we were going up via a lesser punishment - club and paladini found guilty of several things and the reading was damning.
Summed up the chaos he engulfed the club in for years.
Will be interesting seeing what sort of mess he creates at Birmingham
|Redknapp blasts press reports, OSC resign en masse – diary|
Tomo where is this new professionalism you speak off, Berared doesn't know how to run the club and makes basic decisions without any understanding of his "client base" as he might describe it.
He's not a football man and doesn't even come from sports adminastration. He's probably no better than Comical in his own way.
I know why he was brought in, but I don't now think the supposed rationale behind it will happen any time soon, so he's obsol;ete, they need someone who understand the game to run the club even at this level. Nobody will get everything right but frankly Beared just doesn't know what he's doing at best, at worst he doesn't care and isn't good enough at hiding it - like Fernandes is in terms of marketing/spin etc
|Fan sites meeting minutes|
Sorry to be a bit negative here but will any of this have any future bearing on anything the club do? I got the impression - and with apologies too all concerned only an opinion - that the club probably will fo fck all sending Ian and Paul really doesn't mean much there only employees probably hardly the people to have say on executive decisions.
Spiritof67's response above suggests this.
|The great unloved – opposition focus|
Benbu a huge number of that 19K were following Rangers NOT MK Dons, Yes thats more than our capacity but we our hampered by how our ground was developed and hopefully in time we'll get a new ground very nearby.
|The great unloved – opposition focus|
Brilliant Article Clive I agree with pretty much everything you say. I'll play nice with those chaps but Alan as a old school Wimbledon fan (Whop ironically lived in MK) seems to somewhat miss the point.
I also accept Winkleman actually does quite well at running the club although I wonder as to their future post Winkleman.
Time has moved on but I still don't like how they came about even if AFC have done incredbily well from the ashes. However the idea Winkleman got praise for this is somewhat on the incredible side but just goes to show.
Well done though great article as ever
|Window of opportunity? Or summer of discontent? Every club assessed|
Norf I mostly agree with you, but 2 points I want to make.
Firstly as regards Arsenal I don't think they are better for those signings per sey because they lost 2 men in Nasri and Fabregas who are better than anything they've got yet.
OxAde-Chamberlain should develope but Wenger will need to give him time, time he doesn't have.
Arteta by all accounts isn't the player he was prior to his knee injury and some Everton fans think £10m and 75K off the wage bill for a player who's not done it for a while represents good business.
2nd Point as regards Blacburn I agree with everything bar the AShley comment because Ashley inherited a club on the cusp of financial meltdown and whilst he's done well financially he's not doing ever such a good job on the field, he has at least made no pretensions of Champions League in 5 minutes.
Venky's are far worse and much more deluded than him.
After what happened in January I will enjoy their demise.
|Out of darkness cometh light|
Huge missed opportunity really, but depending on your viewpoint. Cash has mader... er Cash (probably) Tango I imagine made diddly squat.
Doubt Cash does friends when it comes to money.
|LFW Awaydays – Vicarage Road, Watford|
Pretty sure I went to Club 49 once, very tosserish as you say.
Othewise this comes scross as a footballers answer to a Loose Women with all the crying lol :0)))))))
|LFW end of term report part two – every player assessed|
The telling point was about the Youngsters who go to Wycombe (Waddock's manager there) and come back early, presumably there not as good as he remembers, when they go elsewhere they are going on the back of being QPR players, but they're from the past in a sense, and the whole youth set up needs looking at imho.
