Pre Match Thoughts - Mike



Same Old Failings.......

Four games into the League season and still not a win in sight, who would have thought that when this new look Town team were handed Morecambe, Burton, Cheltenham & MK Dons as their opening Four opponents ? To say we have underachieved is probably an understatement, certainly where results are concerned and if this season is not to slip away before it has barely begun Town really do need to start winning and fast because even at this embryonic stage making up Eight to Ten points is no easy task for anyone.

I think it is as clear as day as to where our problems lie, yes our defence is at times calamitous and we gift soft goals but errors are happening all over the pitch, Three or Four from Woolfenden, a penalty conceded by Penney, Two costly errors from Evans, a woeful miss from Bonne, Fraser fluffs a penalty, it isn't just One area of the team, it's the whole team and until these errors are eradicated we will continue to struggle. Add to that some really bad luck too, hitting the woodwork several times, One or Two cleared off the line and a keeper or Two having a blinder have all contributed to where we are but we cannot keep bemoaning our bad luck, it is down to us and only us to put it right.

While One or Two players have so far failed to show the promise expected when we signed them there are definitely some very good signs from a few of them too, Macauley Bonne has really surprised me and his Three goals to date are just reward for his hard work and desire to succeed, the first goal against MK Dons was superb and as has been said already if that is scored in the Premiership you would be seeing it again and again and again, he sits on Three goals already and really has overshadowed Joe Pigott so far which really surprises me, I am sure JP will come good.



Image


Rekeem Harper has also really impressed me and looks a very good signing, there is still room for more but I am sure that will come once we start winning and confidence grows, Cameron Burgess has come into the defence at a very difficult time but he too looks a decent purchase and once he gets a capable partner beside him I am sure he will improve further. For me the stand out performer so far just has to be Kyle Edwards, this guy is so exciting and full of ability that I question how Championship clubs could not snap him up, it is said we beat some to his signature and if so hats off to those involved because Edwards is going to be our star this season. Scott Fraser is another who looks very good and the penalty miss apart has done little wrong, I think he is going to be an integral part of the team, the others either need to find a bit of consistency or up their game which I am confident they will.

The Dons of Wimbledon breeze into Town this weekend as we look for that elusive first win, may look easy on paper, it won't be easy out on the grass, it never is. Currently in mid division with a Win, Two draws and a solitary defeat at Sunderland is not a bad start all things considered, add to that a place in the Third round of the Carabao Cup after a narrow win over Northampton Town and it is easy to see why AFC Wimbledon will not be taken lightly, that said this is a game we need to win, will be expected to win and hopefully will win.

Incredibly The Dons have scored Eight goals to date in all competitions and they have come from Eight different players so while there is no obvious main threat it could be said the threat comes from all over the pitch, names on their team sheet are not familiar to me with the exception of Striker Luke McCormick who at One time was a very decent striker, that was before he put on Ten Stone so hopefully he has failed to shed the load which would make the job just that little bit easier, there I have probably jinxed it now and he goes and gets a hat-trick. Despite that I take Town to finally click and get the win, goals and chances have not looked a problem and while I still expect us to concede I think on this occasion we will score Two or Three. Town win and the climb begins. COYB'S.




The Opposition – AFC Wimbledon



Image


On 28 May 2002, the Football Association backed a 2–1 decision by the three-man independent, arbitration commission they had appointed to allow Wimbledon F.C. to relocate north to the new town of Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire; a decision influenced, among other factors, by claims from Wimbledon chairman Charles Koppel that such a move was necessary in order to prevent the club from going bankrupt. The F.A. forbade any right of appeal against the decision.

Although the absence of a ground in Milton Keynes meeting Football League criteria meant that the club were unable to physically move for over a year, major organised protests at the decision continued to be held by Wimbledon's traditional local support and a boycott of the club's home matches at Selhurst Park meant attendances dwindled immediately.

Following the F.A.'s announcement of their decision, a group of Wimbledon supporters led by Kris Stewart and fellow founding members Marc Jones and Trevor Williams met in The Fox and Grapes pub on Wimbledon Common to plan what was to be done next as part of the protest. It was agreed that as there was no right of appeal, the only option was to start the club again from scratch. On 30 May 2002 the idea was put forward in a Wimbledon Independent Supporters' Association meeting to create a new community-based club named AFC Wimbledon and an appeal for funds was launched.

On 13 June 2002, a new manager, a playing strip and badge based on that of the original Wimbledon FC, and a stadium were unveiled to fans and the media at the packed-out Wimbledon Community Centre. In order to assemble a competitive team at very short notice, AFC Wimbledon held player trials on 29 June 2002 on Wimbledon Common, open to any unattached player who felt he was good enough to try out for the team. The event attracted 230 hopeful players, from whom the club's squad for their inaugural season was eventually chosen.

In the 2002–03 season, AFC Wimbledon competed in the Combined Counties League Premier Division under the management of former Wimbledon F.C. player Terry Eames, who was appointed on 13 June 2002. Their first ever game, a pre-season friendly against Sutton United on 10 July 2002, resulted in a 4–0 loss in front of a crowd of 4,657. At the end of their debut season, AFC Wimbledon finished third in the league and narrowly failed to win promotion to the Isthmian League First Division, despite a strong end to the season that involved winning their final 11 league fixtures.

In 2003–04, AFC Wimbledon won their first 21 league games before a 2–2 draw against Sandhurst Town on 10 January 2004, giving them 32 consecutive wins in league games over two seasons. Manager Terry Eames was suspended on 13 February 2004 and sacked five days later on the grounds of gross misconduct, after evidence was produced which showed him to have firstly made unauthorised and untrue representations to a number of the coaching staff, secondly, that he had falsely informed members of the coaching staff that the club had decided not to support his plans for youth football and required him to make immediate budgetary cut-backs and thirdly that he dispensed with the services of members of the coaching staff citing untrue reasons. Assistant manager Nick English took charge with immediate effect. The team went on to finish as champions of the Combined Counties League with an unbeaten record for the season of 42 wins and four draws.

Dave Anderson was appointed as new manager on 11 May 2004. Under his leadership AFC Wimbledon took their good form into the 2004–05 season during which they competed in the Isthmian League First Division — they remained top of the division for the duration of the season, and were convincing title-winners, sealing promotion to the League's Premier Division. Over the course of the season, AFC Wimbledon set a new record for the longest run of unbeaten league games at any level of senior football in the United Kingdom. The team remained unbeaten for 78 league matches between 22 February 2003 (a 2–0 defeat at home to Withdean 2000) and 4 December 2004 (a 2–0 defeat at Cray Wanderers).

The 2005–06 season proved far more competitive than previous seasons – as after winning their first few games, AFC Wimbledon found themselves struggling to remain in the play-off places. However, a 2–1 defeat at Fisher Athletic on 2 May 2006 prevented the club from achieving three back-to-back promotions.

Much of the 2006–07 season was overshadowed by the threat of a proposed 18-point deduction by the FA for the club's fielding of Jermaine Darlington who, it transpired, had not been registered correctly by the club and had therefore played in three games whilst still officially ineligible. However, this punishment was eventually reduced to a three-point deduction and a £400 fine on appeal, after the FA finally acknowledged that the club had made a simple administrative error. Although AFC Wimbledon did enough to qualify for the play-offs, they once again missed out on promotion, this time as a result of losing 1–0 to Bromley in the play-off semi-final on 1 May 2007. Manager Dave Anderson subsequently left the club by mutual consent on 2 May 2007.

Terry Brown was appointed as the new AFC Wimbledon manager on 15 May 2007. During 2007–08, he led the club to promotion to the Conference South in his first season in charge, a feat which predecessor Dave Anderson had proved unable to achieve, having lost two consecutive play-off final opportunities in the previous two seasons. The Dons made steady progress throughout the season, qualifying for the play-offs after finishing third in the League and going through to win the play-off final.
AFC Wimbledon spent most of the 2008–09 season near the top of the league table, eventually finishing as champions and earning promotion to the Conference Premier.

The 2009–10 season was the club's first in the Conference Premier. Overall the Dons finished eighth, 14 points short of the play-off zone. This was the first season in which the club had failed to make the top five in the league table.

In 2010–11 AFC Wimbledon finished as runners-up of the Conference Premier, qualifying for the play-offs and reaching the play-off final. In the play-off final at the City of Manchester Stadium on 21 May 2011, in front of a crowd of 18,195, AFC Wimbledon beat Luton Town 4–3 in a penalty shoot-out, after the match had ended 0–0 in extra time. The victory resulted in promotion to the Football League for the first time and represented the club's fifth promotion in nine years. The club's achievement of attaining League status after just nine seasons of existence is considered to be one of the fastest ascents for a new club since automatic promotion to the Football League first commenced in the 1980s. AFC Wimbledon also hold the record of being the first club to be formed in the 21st century to make it into the Football League, making them the youngest club in the Football League by some distance.

The 2011–12 season saw AFC Wimbledon's promotion to League Two. The team started the season well, winning seven out of their first 12 matches, but failed to keep the momentum going and had a poor run, eventually finishing the season ranking 16th, 10 points clear of the relegation zone.

The 2012–13 campaign marked the 10th anniversary of AFC Wimbledon's inaugural season. After an abysmal start to the season, manager Terry Brown was sacked on 19 September 2012 along with assistant manager Stuart Cash, with AFC Wimbledon sitting just above the relegation zone.

First team coach Simon Bassey took over as caretaker manager with immediate effect. Bassey was in charge just four matches, however, before former Wimbledon player Neal Ardley was appointed as Terry Brown's permanent replacement on 10 October 2012. The Dons secured their Football League status on the final day of the 2012–13 season, despite having started the day in the relegation zone.

In the 2013–14 season the club had a disappointing season overall, only managing to replicate the 20th placed league finish of the season before after the club were docked three points for the ineligible fielding of Jake Nicholson after failing to obtain international clearance for him after he joined from Scottish Championship side Greenock Morton on 19 February 2014.

The 2014–15 season saw AFC Wimbledon finished the season in a mediocre 15th place after a disappointing run of form saw them finish the season without a win in their last eight league fixtures.

The 2015–16 season was AFC Wimbledon's fifth consecutive season in League Two. Despite getting the season off to a mediocre start, the Dons finished the season strongly, winning seven out of their last 10 league matches to ensure that the club would confirm their highest ever League Two finish of seventh place and qualification to the 2016 Football League play-offs. They beat Accrington Stanley in the Semi’s and this win earned them a place in the play-off final at Wembley Stadium against Plymouth Argyle. The fixture was scheduled for 30 May 2016, exactly 14 years to the day since the club's foundation. AFC Wimbledon ultimately triumphed 2–0 on the day in front of a crowd of 57,956.

The 2016–17 season saw AFC Wimbledon compete in League One for the first time in their history. Promotion also placed AFC Wimbledon in the same division as Milton Keynes Dons, who had simultaneously been relegated from the Championship. This ensured the club would face Milton Keynes Dons for the first time at Kingsmeadow which they did on 14 March 2017, going on to triumph 2–0. The club ultimately finished 15th in the league, after a disappointing slump saw them win just five out of their last 22 league matches between January and April.

AFC Wimbledon made an equally slow start to the 2017–18 campaign, managing just five wins in their first 20 league matches between August and December. On 13 December 2017, the club received a further boost after being granted permission to begin work on constructing a new 11,000-seater stadium (which could be expanded to hold up to 20,000 in the future) on the site of Wimbledon Greyhound Stadium. The club was eventually able to secure another season in League One with a draw in their penultimate game, meaning that for the first time, AFC Wimbledon would be playing in a higher division than the Milton Keynes Dons, who were relegated that season.

AFC Wimbledon saw a disastrous start to the 2018–19 season, losing twelve of their first seventeen league games. Manager Neal Ardley departed the club by mutual agreement on 12 November 2018 after a tenure of 6 years, 1 month, 2 days, making him the longest serving manager to date. Ardley was replaced by Wally Downes. After being rooted to the bottom of the table for most of 2019, they lost only 1 of their last 12 league games to lift them out of the relegation zone, ultimately staying up on goal difference on the last day of the season after a 0–0 draw with already relegated Bradford City.

On 25 September 2019, Glyn Hodges took over the management of the first team on a temporary basis following the suspension of Wally Downes after being charged by the FA for betting misconduct.

The club was initially based at Kingsmeadow, a ground bought from and then shared with Isthmian League club Kingstonian F.C. until 2017, and with Chelsea F.C. Women from 2017. In November 2020, the club moved to Plough Lane, a new stadium on the site of the defunct Wimbledon Greyhound Stadium, only 250 yards away from the original Plough Lane, Wimbledon F.C.'s home until 1991. The new stadium has an initial capacity of 9,300, with the option of expansion to a maximum 20,000 at a later date.

On 30 January 2021, following the sacking of Glyn Hodges, Mark Robinson was appointed interim manager of Wimbledon after serving the club in various academy and coaching roles. On 17 February 2021, AFC Wimbledon announced the appointment of Robinson on a permanent basis.

Robinson turned the season around and the club avoided relegation on the second-last matchday.

Last season the Dons finished just outside the relegation zone in 19th place.

Terrific preview, as always. And much appreciated for the time and effort you put in. This will be the match where the defensive frailties we have shown in previous matches will be erased. Our attack has been good, and getting better. The team is starting to gel. I believe we will outplay them and will win by two clear goals. Someone is going to get a hiding from us soon. Why not now?

Yes would echo John Deere's post in all aspects. It is a great preview and prior to reading it i had also felt a two goal margin would be likely. For me a 2-0 win to Town.

One slightly sobering thought occured to me when reading about our oponents and that is Ipswich Town have never been in the Premier League during AFC Wimbledon's entire existence! :shock: I guess that really hits home how far away in time any form of Ipswich glory has been! Sadly nigh on an entire generation. COYB let's start to put this right! Now!

Really need a good result from this one and get that first win.
As Mike pointed out in his preview we are already falling adrift from the leaders and even though it is still early days we can't afford for the gap to get much bigger even at this stage of the season. I know people keep saying well Blackpool got promoted last season after a bad start but that is very much the exception rather than the rule. Not sure if this is correct but I read that in the last 22 seasons, the team in 20th place after this amount of games played (us at the moment) have finished in the top 2 twice, top 6 just once and were relegated 3 times.
Will go for a 2-1 win for Town to finally get our season started.

Just picked us to win and win in style also. All things are possible on the field, we got a number of attacking options that are useful. If we play like we did last time out we'll be in with half a chance. Cook's position is safe even if we continue to draw games, so long as the team shows enough desire and ambition. Obviously don't want to tie fixtures, I want victories out there, but just highlighting an issue.

Put in the prediction league we'll win 5 - 0. If we don't win 5 - 0, then fine, I was wrong.

But if I'm right, and we can (or do) win by such a score, that really would be something.

Ipswich 5 Wimbledon (old / new, Milton Keynes, FA Cup winners 1988, new club risen from ashes, Selhurst Park, Plough Lane, whoever the f*ck you are or where you're at) 0

I’ve got a feeling this is the one where it all comes together. 3 - 0 - Pigott to score against his old club. COYBs!

Still have faith. Really disappointed with the results and the soft goals - but you can see what Cook is trying to achieve. When it comes together it’ll be very good.

Not on here, but annoyed with some fans where there seems an undercurrent where they’re willing Cook to fail. Really need a result not just for the promotion push, but to take the pressure off.

This on ITFC official site sounds encouraging;.

"Paul is confident that he will have his full first-team squad available soon.

"Our injuries are all starting to clear up now," said the Blues boss.

"They’re all in the latter stages of their rehabilitation now which is great for us and great for our supporters.

"All of our injuries will see players return very quickly including, possibly, one or two tomorrow."


Jon Nolan is close to a return to full training, and while i seem him mainly as a squad player now, at least it will give us numbers and options on midfield. Can see him being utilised in the Papa John trophy games.

I agree Tang, I've said for years now an element of our fanbase are whinging w*nkers and I stand by that, they definitely do will the team to lose, Cook to fail and the place to become toxic again, I couldn't give a sh*t if people find that hard to accept or not, its true, I've rubbed shoulders with these morons at virtually every away game on every concourse for the last few years, they are uneducated pricks, thankfully it is a minority but sadly that is all it takes to cause a bad vibe.

Moving on, I am certain Cook will get it right and we will be challenging at the right end of the table, its very evident in passages of our play already just how much better we are, cut the careless errors from our game and there won't be many teams good enough to beat us on their own ability and merits.

Hopefully Edmundson will go in a CB tomorrow…

Pigott replaces Bonne. Another injury, I guess.

Still no Edmundson, Chaplin, Norwood in the squad. Aluko on the bench.

Jackson makes the bench(?). No Dobra on the bench, so I guess he’s going out on loan.

Town: Hladky, Vincent-Young, Woolfenden, Burgess, Coulson, Harper, Evans (C), Burns, Fraser, Edwards, Pigott.

Subs: Holy, Donacien, Penney, Carroll, Aluko, Barry, Jackson.

I can’t believe how good we look going forward especially our pace down the right with KVY and Burns. That said Coulson and Edwards don’t look too bad down the left either. This is the best I’ve seen us play for years.

Surely it’s only a matter of time before this team really clicks. I’m just stunned that some of our fans can’t see how much we’ve progressed under Paul Cook.

Im really enjoying the football more. Its just the results.
I understand its a results based business, but you can really appreciate the football. It makes us vulnerable at the back, but its a helluva lot bwtter than some of the crap we've had to watch the last few years. Just need that result.

I need to see it again but sadly it looked avoidable.

Wes Burns and Kyle Edwards look like two very good signings. Such a shame we let them get back into the game so quickly after taking the two goal lead.

Oh dear, we’re looking a little shaky as we enter the final 15 mins, this game is far from won, a third goal would help.
