On This Day in 1969
An end of season testimonial game against Chelsea was ruined as football hooliganism came to Plough Lane. Gates were broken down and the goals posts were snapped as visiting fans in the 5,250 crowd went on the rampage. "I have never seen anything like it in 25 years of following football," club chairman Len Hibberd commented in the aftermath. "When they invaded the pitch I thought that anything could happen. It was a miracle that no one was seriously hurt."

On sale outside the club shop at home matches for £2. Also available, It Only Took Nine years - the third part of a pictorial history of the Dons.
Morning Wombles. There was mention recently of Chris Gunter, the experienced Welsh international right back being released by Charlton, who will soon be 33, well, his fellow but slightly less experienced Charlton and Wales team mate, Adam Mathew, is also being released and is 30. He might be a better option than Gunter. I think they are both better than Alexander, who i'd get rid of.

You just know they'd be MK City Dons. Don't you.

MK will be given city status. Surely a good excuse for a name change?

You're Wimbledon For. Headline in The Today newspaper the time. Then came the bung. Nigel's doing the same for The Bin Dippers tonight.

I’ve seen us do the dark arts - few times but only ever playing the part of the teenage virgin who thinks it’s exciting til “injury time.”

It’s not a good advert for L2 football tbh. Port Vale are the better team but neither side look like they know how to score a goal in this second half. Extra time beckons and I don’t have the stamina.
Everton 2-2

Will the Palace keeper "accidentally " let the ball slip through his hands?
We’re the Holier Than Thouest Story in Football, Trigs. We don’t do dark arts.

Who do you think we are? Wycombe?
Watching the L2 playoff semi - we’re gonna need to learn to do the dark arts better than we ever have if this is what it takes to make the top 6.

I've applied for the DoTD post. Dirctor of Tea Drinking.
pete no we won't need all those - we're talking about a one man role working for the manager, Ainsworth has people doing it for him and oddly it's worked for them

silk the data analyst preferred to be the warm up man for the "finishers" so be interesting to see if we need him for analysis work

So, we'll need a Director of Data, plus a DoD Assistant/Analyst/Dogs Body. Why not just leave it to JJ?

Nick, Working - there are third party firms, like StatBomb, who can do the analysis for you. Say you want a target man they can supply suitable candidates for your budget etc. They can also provide team analysis. I do not know their rates or if we can do it cheaper or better but it would be something to investigate. What is the best value? Our own team, a third party or none.
