On This Day in 1986
FA secretary Ted Croker used a speech on the future of football at Keele University to outline a plan for a new ?super league' with no promotion and relegation. He used the recently promoted Dons as an example of a club that should not be in the top flight. "It is delightful and romantic for Wimbledon to get from the Fourth Division to the very top but their facilities are totally incapable of staging First division football," he said. "To bring top clubs like Manchester United and Tottenham to a ground like that is ridiculous." - historicaldons.com

Hello, I would like to make WUP readers aware that the Club will be hosting 'Women at the Game' at the home friendly fixture v. QPR on Saturday 14 July. You may have read my article about this in the Bury programme on 5 May. 'Women at the Game' is the brainchild of Jacqui Forster, formerly of Supporters Direct, who sadly died recently. Its aim is "to give women their first taste of live football in a supportive environment". You can read more at [Link] If anyone would like to help out at this event, or if you know of any ladies who don't usually but would be interested in attending this game, then please do write to watgafcwimbledon@gmail.com to express your interest. Many thanks Anna Slade

Wu - agree entirely. What we have at present is 'minivar' at best!

Naz - yes they have but he is only as good as the money available. Do they/have they had any? Thats my question. Portsmouth of course now have ex-Disney Eisner in the backroom so that is more understandable

Interesting that Ted Cromer is quoted in the 'On This Day' when his grandson is playing for England in the World Cup...think he also made a comment to Maggie Thatcher around hooligans being her problem which put an end to him becoming a Sir like FA secretaries before him

Football desperately needs to clamp down on the corner and free kick penalty area wrestling. A couple of weeks of penalties would sort it out.

Ditto Portsmouth signing players all over the shop with questions over ability to pay. What do you want as owners short term success or financial stability. I want the latter cos the former lets the Sam Hammams of the world into play so I am glad we don't spend beyond our means.

The problem is, given that clash involved three fouls, there should be a penalty or free kick at every corner or set piece, with normally a choice of three or more different fouls to penalise.

From what I have read here and in the papers seems like the use of VAR is a total mess - no control, use it when you feel like it!

[92.lo.gg.ed] 
Not that I am watching at all
So I thought they used this VAR on every game? Or is it only for the "big" teams

Two players foul and a free kick the other way?
Maybe it's because Southend have an excellent manager, Jampot.

Am I missing something? Isn't Southend meant to be a club who are one signing from being a basket case financially? Or have they new people in? Seem to be signing people on fees etc quite a lot...

Presume they haven't upgraded that dated ground at all I suppose...
Money can be temporary, look at Eastleigh, Crawley, various Essex non league clubs

Ardley defines it as money . It was a totally unnecessary o yer view with another dig at the club which no doubt the likes of tiki and that bloke who posts once a year with indignant rage will be filled with pride upon reading

Iโ€™d take a front two of Efan Ekoku and Didier Drogba next season. They would probably start more games than Appiah will.

Jampot I'd add expectations to that. People expect Bradford and Charlton to be competing for promotion. I'd say that is also what defines bigger.

Funny thing is I reckon if they go to those clubs there us a good chance they'd be released if the club gets promoted cos they tend to look for proven championship players.
It's history really. That drives support size of stedium and how well known and Club is. We're really a reformed Club starating what 16 years still playing in a non league ground.

I suppose it is how you define bigger (more fans, more money?) and better (actually playing full time in a team, getting promoted or finishing just further up the table?) I think the jury is really out of those at the mo...

Based in his background, I would be surprised if Ben Nugent was NOT on Ardley's radar. Interesting comments in his Wikipedia entry

Reeves and Poleon went on to bigger things and earned a lot more than we were able to pay.

Reeves went to Bradford which is bigger and better and he was Lyleโ€™s mate

Reading the London online LTB speculation this intrigued me:"โ€œWithout Lyle actually saying it, the feeling is he has done a wonderful job over the last three years and has seen some of his team-mates go on to bigger and better things." Apart from Tom ELLIOT is there really anyone who has gone on to bigger AND better things?
