On This Day in 2001
At the start of what proved to be their last season, Wimbledon FC won a practice match at Northampton Town 7-0. On a scorchingly hot afternoon, a first half hat trick from David Connelly, two strikes from Neil Shipperley and goals from Patrick Agyemang and Jobi McAnuff were more than enough for Terry Burton's men to see off the Cobblers at their then six-year old Sixfields stadium.

Not at all I hope we play the attacking football of the after Easter 4 matches. Not over playing sideways backwards possession bore. Hoping that the manager that saves us from relegation doesnt get sacked 3/6months into the next season like the previous guys.

Although I do think some fans have got carried away with the Robbo wow factor😂
Spit’s gagging for Robbo to fail so we can go back to longball football

Was no first 11 put out last night, but even so sounds like we put some good moves together. If it fell apart when changes were made that suggests there is some trial and error going on with formation / tactics, which leads to 'gelling', and along with fitness surely is exactly what PSFs are for. Lol at Spit's 'honeymoon is over'... We haven't see a MR-built squad play a competitive game yet.

Hope to see at least 1 half vs Scunny played by something closely resembling the starting 11 for Donny. If we can get to Donny with a fully fit squad (exc Nightingale who doesn't count) that's a fairly successful pre-season compared to previous.
"Score a fucking goal ffs". Succinctly put, Hash!

Yeah maybe this is just how Robbo goes about pre season and it's part of the plan but whichever way you look at it, 2 goals in 6 games is just fucking annoying. I mean score a fucking goal ffs.

Do the covid hospital cases include the 56% who contract it while in hospital for other reasons?

I think we’ll be a different side once the season starts proper. Maybe we don’t want any injuries leading into the season.

Morning all. B75 - I think it was something chronic like nine games in a month towards the end, so you can well understand we ran out of steam. As for last night at Woking, I do wonder if we're not going at full pelt with the intensity

We upped our game in the last 5/10 minutes, and had we done that for the whole of the second half we may well have even scored a goal
It did get a little nervous towards the run in last season. Ok we didn’t win our last four but I guess we were starting to look tired as the games were coming around so quick, especially the intensity and high tempo we were playing at. Difficult to keep that up. And remember if Piggott had scored that pen at Ipswich we’d been safe sooner. Also missed a pen against Rochdale so in hindsight we should have bagged 2 wins instead of 2 draws

The only people who die from covid are the ones who are cowering, that’s right isn’t it? So instead of of these lockdowns we should have all been attending mass spreading events, problem solved 👍

Bloody hell we scored 7 goals. Connelly hat trick, Shipperly brace. Even Wu Tang and McAnuff got involved. Under tippy tappy Terry Burton too.

Some remarkable things happen sometimes.
OTD in 2001 was when the WISA Exec met the late great Brian Lomax and were inspired to join the Trust Movement, and then set out to create The Dons Trust, which Ferret led on.

History in the making. Yes, it was a very hot day!
Biggles, hospitalisations are about 10 days behind cases and deaths about a week behind hospitalisations. So hospital numbers will start coming down in the next few days.

Meanwhile the number of covid patients in hospital keeps going up. 5,900 now, double the number of less than three weeks ago. The pandemic is certainly not over yet.

Spit - I know that we got 3 points from our last 4 games but the last 2 games were meaningless as we had survived. We took the foot off the gas, simple as.

[79.lo.gg.ed] 
Compared to Wally who won 1 in our last six at the back end of survival season, and the no wins in 11 at the start of the season..... 1 win in 17 is far worse than the 0 wins in 4 that Robinson us currently on.
Or alternatively, just 1 defeat in the last 4 games ... glass half full

I will make an exception to what I said about the BBC though as I watched a quiz show called The Wall. Whoever thought Danny Dyer would make a great game show host needs fucking shooting 🤣🤣

Moving to Australia has given me a far greater level of appreciation for just how good the BBC is, the tv & radio here is fucking awful, i stream LBC TalkSPORT & various BBC stations over any of the drivel here & have just invested in express VPN to use iplayer as I’m sick to death of the shite on here & ad breaks galore! Trust me whatever the licence fee is now it’s worth every penny
