Pre match interference with beer selection in The Shay Wake.
I resign!

So, Boundary Park, lots of different ways of getting to and from.
All of them awkward.
Survived a walk through Chadderton on a Tuesday night once.
The out of tune squawking of "when the blues...", always a joy in the land of dark satanic mills, spires and minarets.

Are these the only ones that we have played in all 4 divisions?
Coventry as well maybe?

Hopefully something in the air of Greater Mancunia agrees with the players.
Quietly confident of them giving a good account of themselves today.
Enough for a win. Don't know. Hope so.

Need a win = Doughty must start
He wasn't that good when he came on half was thro the 2nd half on Tuesday, seemed to upset the formation. Not sure who would be dropped to accomodate him, unless Carroll faisl the fitness test then its a no brainer.

Bennett, Anderson, Woolery and Rose have all played really well the last few games.

At the Spurs v Huddersfield game on Pritchard watch.

Have to say, the Spurs stadium is mightily impressive.

As for us, 1-1 today. A good performance but probably not enough.

The best American Smokehouse I ever had was in Oldham, a place called Jacks American Smokehouse and Grill.

Well worth a visit if passing, superb smoked meats and sausages with cornbreads and all the sides, far better than the generic shit like Five Guys.

We have played them in  all 4 divs, but Cov we've played in all 4, + Div 3 S and the old Southern League.

A full house then.
Hopefully the more recent umbilical link with Coventry will help generate some upward momentum for us to get back to the same division.
Can't see them gaining the heights of the top two divisions any time soon.

That was my only thought I couldn't remember if we swapped divisions and avoided each other, as we did with Nottm Florists for a long while. We got close to Sheff Utd too in 81 they came up from Div 4 and we were relegated.

It does seem a bit odd, but in fact we haven't played Wimbledon, in old or new form that often.  Sadly we've played Franchise more  Angry

A good chance we'll renew acquaintances next season.... I know they've a new ground planned, but no idea how that's shaping.

No chance of a new ground for next season then.... shame Div 4 gets less interesting when you hang about in it too long.

Apart from Bradford City, the other 5 who might join us next season, has still got plenty of candidates.

So maybe another trip to Kingsmeadow next season, not one of the better trips to London.
That could be offset by the return of Leyton Orient, one of the better away days in the capital.

Looks like it, have to wait another year before its completed. That is unless the real Dons can escape relegation.

Kingsmeadow is without doubt the smelliest ground i've been in.
