On This Day in 2002
Terry Burton was sacked by Wimbledon after repeatedly clashing with Charles Koppel over transfer policy and the proposed move to Milton Keynes. Matters had come to head when the manager had ignored instructions to omit defender Peter Hawkins from the team for the game against Barnsley as it would have earned him a ?10,000 bonus for passing a specified number of appearances. With the club claiming to be losing ?20,000 a day and out of play-off contention, the chairman was keen to avoid paying. - historicaldons.com

Even Erik wants it and urges the fans to support it so go on it takes like 15 seconds...
Am I the only one who thinks Liam Trotter is quite good? Certainly limited, but every game I watch he is very much involved, he seems composed and makes good decisions. He keeps things VERY simple, but overall he's more than comfortable at this level. Something I can't say at all for Tom Soares. Personally I would be happy to see Trotter stay next season (whatever division we're in). Soares is this seasons Tyrone Barnett for me. One of the most important tasks of preseason will be finding a way to offload him.

Soares would be no better in league 2. Can't imagine any club above the conference would have any interest in him
Lee brown went to school in Purley and his mum probably lives local as she works or at least used to work in wimbledon.

I've just caught up with the gb ramblings and - if there is a demand for season tickets, then I think we should sell as many as we can. Spit - I remember racing my elder brother (I always used to beat him as well) down to Molly's chip shop and back every Friday evening when I used to live on Pevensey road as a kid. The queue would often be out of the door back then.

Anyone think Winkie would drop the "Dons" by merging with Milton Keynes Wanderers to form Milton Keynes United? (Except I think there's a rule that merging clubs must take the lower-ranked club's league place).

Concrete steak is bad for you
One the one hand, someone is giving the club a whole fistful of money up front and allowing them to pay for and budget accordingly. On the other hand, someone is regularly going along and paying 'market rate' for a game, as well as incidental and impulse purchases at tea bar, merchandise etc. Which one is the better customer?

they're both equally fans and should always be seen as such, same as faraway wombles, or those who will only come along for the big games at NPL.

"Come back with your season ticket... or on it."
And I am an ST holder and I think one of the 300 who would be impacted by the 80%.

DonWorn I didn't say it isn't up to people to do that and please look back at what I've said about the 80% thing being poorly handled. I'm just saying I agree with the idea that someone who attends a lot of games without being an ST holder should be viewed highly. If someone said to me my ST counted for less in terms of chances of big match tickets than someone who attended as many home games and did away games, which I don't, then I wouldn't see it as unfair. Buying an ST doesn't make me a better supporter or contributor.

lurker 2012- surely if I buy something it's up to me whether I use it or not. First of all the club should be pleased to sell as many season tickets as possible!

Silk - GRR Martin won't release (or finish) the last books until the last TV series has been & gone. Why? Because the lazy sod could and should have done this long before now, but admitted some time ago that he didn't know how to finish the story. I reckon he'll wait an see which of the multiple endings is used on TV, then write it into his last books. Prefer Bernard Cornwall's stuff. At least he finishes his series long before the screen adaptations catch up. Just read the last (No.10) in the Last Kingdom series. No spoilers.

read all available GoT books before it made it on screen. gave up waiting for the final ones years ago.
Silk - if you have been a ST holder for that long it may be worthwhile signing up to the Dons register so you can buy tickets for games when you can attend.

If that's true, then he's sold Bristol a short one. Yes Oxford is closer to London, but it's hardly a drastic change.

Regarding Lee Brown sorry to burst the bubble but an Oxford season ticket holder who I work with was telling me that they could be challenging next season based on signings being mentioned and told me they were signing Lee Brown over a week ago so before this news broke

Just seen the surprising news that GRR Martin will not be releasing The Winds of Winter this year. Who saw this coming?
25th Apr 2018 21:46:07 
[82.lo.gg.ed] 
It is my wish to read the last two books in the series - if he ever gets around to finishing them.
Silk interesting and not unfair point that someone who has attended matches should get privilege ahead of someone who bought a season ticket but never attended.

It was my first season this year to not have a season ticket as I wanted to bring my son to more games but that hasn’t worked out too well

I honestly think that the ST 'cap' is a non-issue. I doubt that we will reach the 5500 limit and if we did then I suspect, with around 8000 'home' places then the club would increase the 'cap'. IMO the argument is one of principle, rather than actuality...
25th Apr 2018 21:07:39 
[86.lo.gg.ed] 
I would expect around 4500 ST holders at NPL, with average crowds of around 7000.
Brighton - have been a season ticker holder since the nineties until the end of this season as I will struggle to get to games so I will no longer buy one. And you know what as I no longer will be buying one I won't expect being able to buy a ticket to any game and I certainly not will expect the club to keep any back because I am able to attend a game. As I said earlier those non-season ticket holders who have attended games during the season should get some priority over those who are looking to attend one game a season - ie a big cup game.
25th Apr 2018 20:58:40 
[82.lo.gg.ed] 
It is the same principle in that I like the NFL and call myself a Redskins fans. If I was ever in DC I would also not expect that club to keep tickets back just so I can attend one game. I will still be a Dons supporter.
Interesting speculation. Whether Lee Brown is available or not, we need a left back for next season. Personally, I'd like to see Meades move to a midfield holding role, as he no longer has the speed for LB.

Would love to see bids come in for Trotter and Soares, but then pigs might fly (or Trotter may get off the ground when trying to make a header, which is possibly equivalent)...
