Re: Accy thump

Why is everyone so obsessed with Michael Appleton? Probably because, for anyone under 30, he’s the most successful manager we’ve had in their lifetime. Those of us under 40 could make a case for Denis “Next England Manager” Smith (Out), but even to us Appleton probably tops the list given the quali...

Re: Accy thump

I’m still of my view that any manager deserves ten league games of the season to prove his or her worth. But in the modern era, that’s probably a minority view. Can KR hold on? Should he? For how long? I'm definitely generally of that view too. And this is a similar start to the first season under ...

We'd have to score a goal first!

Re: Predictions

Bottom half, I reckon. Hopefully in the upper half of that half, but I'm not feeling too confident.

Re: Retained list

Sam Long is an odd one - I'm not really sure he has done enough to justify a contract, but I guess he's on a fairly low wage for the division.

Re: Going Down??

Well, it seems in the end that 51 points proved enough. Glad Rochdale stayed up - I've enjoyed both my visits there, and they always seemed an especially friendly club. And I also recall that Oldham were one of the proponents of the Premier League way back when. How's that working out for them, I wo...

Re: Going Down??

Yeah, I didn't think to imply it was the official site. A Wimbledon fan friend of mine linked to it on facebook, and I thought it was nicely put.

Re: Going Down??

I dont really, I’m not keen on Wimbledon, the hipster hoofers! It's more that it would be very apt that those who tried to get ahead by stealing a football club ended up a division below those who reformed that club from nothing. Whether one likes the way AFC Wimbledon play has little to do with it...

Re: Rochdale

I couldn't watch it - was fairly sure it was gonna go over the bar! Is that because you tend not to watch any Oxford spotkicks or was it because Mousinho was spotting the ball up ? It's because it was Mousinho - I had zero faith in his ability to score a penalty. Have to admit it was a good one tho...

Re: Retained list

So, are Hemmings and Raglan still under contract then? Hemmings seems to have been around for ages.

And I assume Thomas won't play at Blackburn?

Rochdale

I've seen fewer matches than usual this season - this will only be my 9th home match of the season - but I've yet to see us win at home. (Luckily I have seen two away wins.) To be honest though, I'd take the point that sees us mathematically safe.

Re: Going Down??

There was another season post-Tranmere that we flirted with relegation. I think it might have been 1992-93. I remember a 1-0 win at Oakwell that pretty much confirmed our survival. Looking back at the season history, we must then have finished fairly strongly as the record says we finished 14th.

Re: Going Down??

And the added bonus of Franchise being effectively relegated. Hope Wimbledon stay up.
