It was possibly the most significant game in the history of AFC Wimbledon. After three frustrating years when the new Dons upward momentum stalled in the backwaters of the Ryman League, the events at Wheatsheaf Park in May 2008 provided a joyous release. Through a plethora of photos, talking heads and pitchside reminscences we recall the play off final at Staines and what it meant for the future. Issue 10 of The Historical Don - the fanzine that delves into every highway and byeway of Wimbledon's glorious past - also includes a big interview with the vertically challenged Terry Gibson, the Dons complete post war FA Cup record, Bert Dale's latest season insert and an in depth look back 50 years to the club's first ever promotion campaign. Add in Billy Edwards' memories of the night he was mugged down at a foggy Fetcham Grove and you have the perfect tonic for any autumnal gloom.

On sale at the Tranmere game - still just two of your English pounds!
Trebor, not Trevor. Lol

Trevor - I didn't say he shouldn't wear one. I asked what it represents. And yes, I do think it's a little bit odd that an Argie is wearing a poppy. But it's a free country, innit

wish another organisation besides the British Legion was involved in it, I dislike the British Legion immensely
I've got 2 tickets for the egg chasing between Wasps and Harlequins on Sunday at Wycombe. Free to a good home for anyone that wants them

More info
At this time of year especially, be aware of Britain First, who often pose as poppy sellers but are actually raising funds for their BNP splinter group.

just like their 'help us fight animal cruelty' Facebook posts all go to their political fund
I think it is just a Commonwealth thing. But HD, why shouldn't someone who is living and working in this country wear one, if they wish to do so?

Hardon it started as a remembance of British soldiers killed in the first world war but has now spread worldwide as a symbol of remembering war dead. Different countries wear the poppy on different days.

I guess it depends if you see the poppy as a symbol or as a charitable gift. REd poppies in this country provide money to the British Legion, which is about Britain (and the commonwealth?)/ You can of course also get white poppies (Peace Pledge Union) or purple (Animal Aid, commemorating the animals killed in war).

What is the poppy for - i.e. is it for all war dead or just Commenwealth? The reason I ask is because the Spurs manager, who is an Argie, was wearing one last night.

Chestnut- When you look at the poppies just try to imagine that each one represents the life of a young man and imagine a sea of boys in the tower moat. Very emotional.

If you want to see what happens when you over-think what to do with your hands, just check out the photo on the "James fits the bill" link above :-)

I can't see why bother submitting a planning application. The newspaper poll showed the doggers are more popular than us.

That has to count for something.
Windsor: 'by the end of October' is what we've been told for some time. We still might not hear anything for a while, unless the club issues a press release: it'll take the council a while to process all the paperwork and upload it to their website.

Just watched Harry Kane's fumble when forced into goal for Spudz last night. Oh dear! The Lamela goal was good though..

AIS - the first test is always whether a result is repeatable so you'll need to keep buying new cycling gloves ;)

Wags - You can see it from the bridge :)

Although walking the whole way around, at least once, is worth the effort.
Considering the slope to Tower Bridge, I'm surprised you can make it at all.

You're in good shape, mate. Only that the shape is of a beach ball :-)
GG - About a ten minute walk for me. Not much longer than a fag break!

Can't make Tranmere tomorrow but I'm not fussed because they're bottom of the league, wielding a new manager and the FLS is on. We've not got a chance in hell against all that.

Treebs - if you DO manage to get hold of the nursing shift patterns, you know where you can find me :-)))))))))))
Trebor - get a job as a nurse at St George's and when you start you will be given your shift pattern, job done, bob's your uncle, fanny's your aunt, happy days!
