This made me smile!

Last night AFC Wimbledon played MK Dons in the Caraboa Cup. Last time they met at Wimbledon, the home team were fined for refusing to use the ‘Dons’ part of MK’s name, in the programme and on the scoreboard. This time the scoreboard was ‘broken’ and they didn’t print a programme!

MK won on penalties, by the way.

Good on Wimbledon, referring to the league reminds me of a certain fraze, " don't let the buggers grind you down" .

Would’ve been good (and technically accurate) if Wimbledon had referred to MK as Franchise FC.

Or illegitimate Franchise Scum FC to be more correct.

Could hear The Aaaaaa FCcccccc Wim-ble-don chant loud and proud last night.

But then the wind was strong and in the right direction  


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Wimbledon could have printed a limited-edition programme, which could have been sold to collectors for more than the expected fine.

Also, interesting if Macclesfield were wound-up and had been drawn against Bury.

I wonder if, when we play those from down the road, we can get away with not using the 's' and 'horpe' part of their name?

Would love to see the excuse we’d give at the FA hearing when we couldn’t get our technicolor-HD-super scoreboard displaying Scunthorpe in full.

Am I the only one who thinks this is pretty pathetic from AFC Wimbledon? Last season they were in a higher division for the first time. Surely that could have been considered the end of the matter. Order had been restored.
