The Results of Our Inaugural WUP Premonitions 2015-16

As many of you will remember, back at the start of the season, we ran a for-fun, simple 4-question survey to test your skills and lack of judgement against your fellow guestbookers!

We asked you to guesstimate:

Final league position.
Final number of points.
Top goalscorer.
Number of goals he (or she) will score.

Sounds so easy and obvious! Ooh... but was it?

But most importantly was there a prize [*] at the end of the season for the closest guess?

 

Final Position: 7th (Playoffs)

There were 197 responses to this question, with mystic Wuppites predicting finishes between champions with 300 points to relegation with 43 points.

Ignoring a couple of silly answers (you know who you are), the mood was actually very positive, with over 83% believing we'd finish in the top 10 and more than half of those going for a play-off or better place.

With 7th Place cemented in the penultimate week, a lot of bragging rights were earned just by our making The Playoffs, so well done all you optimistic scattershotters out there!

However, next season we make you actually pick a final place, from 1st to 24th inclusive, just to make things harder!

Final Points

With a 1-0 Win on our final game against Newport, we climbed the dizzy heights of 75 points in a season, shattering our previous paltry best by an astounding margin.

Still, this was not enough to put off a surprising number of optimistic Wombles. Although to be fair any small amount of research would have told them that one needed at least 70 points to make the playoff places.

Top Goalscorer

Lyle Taylor's pre-season goalfest turned a few heads. Of 191 sensible responses, 156 of you had him down as your top scorer. With a low of 11 goals and a high of 32 goals, an average of just over 18 meant that many people, who were just a little more optimistic than the rest, once again hit the target, or close to.

With Lyle Taylor taking a well-earned rest in the final game, this threw the final results into a bit of a tizzy – with more than a dozen people earning close-but-no-cigar status, by dint of getting spot on with points (or one point out) but screwing up/being screwed out of Ultimate Bragging Rights, when he might have grabbed one or two more against the Welsh side already dreaming of their Summer Holidays on Barry Island.

 

But good on NA for resting his tired front and back lines, ready for the Assault on Accrington.

NB Taylor was also by far the most fire-powered of our forwards, with Azeez finishing second on 7 for the season, and Akinfenwa and Elliot both on 6. A decent amount of goals from midfield, which is nice – although the HAFSOG meter remains relatively in the low end of the spectrum.

And so, the results…..

 

Spot On:

 

Miraculously, given the oddities of the season, One Wupper got it bang on the money, with Playoffs and 75 Points predicted, along with a prescient 20 goal tally for Taylor.

 

STEP FORWARD “Champion” Alexandra Don!

You win a free subscription to the fanzine for next season!

 

Runners-Up win TWO free subscripti… okay I’ll get my coat….

Some honourable mentions, with a number of fans getting very close, so we bestow upon those mentioned some Mini-Bragging Rights throughout the summer. Only a couple of referee’s opinions and offside decisions separated you from A Summer Of Glory on the Guestbook.

We still think you did really well – as did others who were there or thereabouts. But with a surprising number of Wuppers being one point/goal or two away from mindreading claims, it was hard to break it down even further.

 

Here’s a nice chart tho, for posterity, so the closest of you can see your name/tag embossed on the interwebs for ever more!

Name   Position Points Top Scorer Goals
           
WUP Champion 2016!

  [2016-06-07 12:14:52] Please help with replica shirt research  

We are currently researching the growth in the buying and wearing of
replica football shirts by adult fans since the 1970s. We are aiming to
gather the experiences and opinions of fans who have bought or been
given replica shirts (be it occasionally or every season!), and of fans
who have never owned a replica shirt. We are keen to hear from fans of
all ages - and particularly those aged over 40, who might have bought
replica shirts in the 1980s and early 1990s.

We'd be very grateful if you'd be willing to complete our short survey
(should take 5 minutes at most).

You can access it here: [Link] target="_blank"> [Link] Thanks for your time

researcher).

WUP is back to fly in the face of that notion once again and as per usual it's by the fans for the fans, independent viewpoints but with a common theme - supporting the Dons and raising a few quid for club related projects into the bargain. All on an entirely voluntary basis, so if you are a budding writer or just need to get something off your chest then why not write something for the next issue! Preferably concerning AFC Wimbledon, the fate of greyhound racing in the UK and the loss of a freakfest radio programme in Buckinghamshire (bwahaha!).

Who dictates the content? You, if you send enough in. Who provides the resources? Don't answer that one :) Who sets the price? It's set down in stone... 100 pence of the realm!

It's got articles, analysis and random images that are sometimes loosely related to the surrounding content. It's got a certain League 2 manager on the cover as you've never seen him before! It's practically unrivalled in it's current day Womble genre. It's tested as fully incinerable if you don't like it. Want to know more? Buy it and find out! Your matchday experience is incomplete without it!

  [2013-04-25 15:13:52] WUP 10.8 On sale 27/04/13! Last issue this season! Only one of your English pounds!  

It's your final chance this season to buy a WUP. Written by the fans for the fans, and raising funds for club related projects. Issue 8 looks at the remaining fixture and samples supporter expectation of the outcome. Given what is at stake, we can't really focus on anything else this issue! Dissipate the surrounding tension by attempting the prize crossword, whilst preparing your lungs and liver to provide the 12th man support that (hopefully) helps AFCW to still be a League 2 club come 5p.m. Thanks for supporting WUP, the fanzine and the guestbook during 2012-13 and a happy and healthy close season to all of you!

  [2013-03-27 08:46:58] WUP 10.7 Available at the Barnet game! Don't miss it!  

As the season reaches its exciting climax, the equally riveting unofficial AFCW fanzine speeds towards its imminent tenth anniversary with the seventh issue this season.

You can secure your copy from the usual suspects lurking around KM, for the inflation busting sum of £1.

For those of you who have passed comment on the gloomy nature of the last two front covers, we have made this one rather jolly, especially for you! Enjoy, and get writing for the last issue of the season, due at the Fleetwood fixture!

  [2013-03-21 08:37:40] London to Amsterdam Challenge for Prostate Cancer UK  

Many clubs, including this one, are joining The Link] target="_blank">Football League London to Amsterdam Challenge in support of Prostate Cancer UK. Fans, players and club officials from across The Football League will take to the saddle for a unique two day "Total Football" themed, 155 mile challenge for the 250,000 men living with prostate cancer across the UK.

The ride will see Link] target="_blank">fans pedal from capital to capital, raising money for prostate cancer. Kicking off on Friday 14 June, the route will pass through the picturesque countryside of rural England, before crossing The Channel at Harwich and onto the flat landscape of Dutch Zeeland. The sight of Amsterdam with its network of canals, cobbled streets and wonderful architecture on Saturday will mark the end of a fantastic ride and the start of the Total Football celebrations.

Former England, Watford and AC Milan Striker, Luther Blissett, has already signed up, and other footballing legends are expected to follow. Luther told us: "Rivalry between clubs can be fierce, and although this isn't meant to be a race, I am sure there'll be a sprint to reach the finish line, but we'll definitely be all on the same Link] target="_blank">team when it comes to raising awareness and funds for prostate cancer."

Fans can find more details and sign up at Link] target="_blank">prostatecanceruk.org/amsterdam to represent your club for the London-Amsterdam cycling challenge.

  [2013-03-21 08:09:36] We Are Wimbledon Fund Update  

After the first few weeks of The We Are Wimbledon Fund, we are delighted to announce that an "annualised" £42,500 has been raised with the help of 110 Wimbledon fans.This is already enough to make a real difference to the playing budget but we have a long way to go to hit the £400,000 per year figure. Broken down that means 1000 fans x £33.34 per month. It is doable and between us we really can make this happen. We are delighted to announce that the first We Are Wimbledon Fund Day will take place on 1st April (Barnet Home). The big target by the end of April 1st is to hit £100,000. 3 points would be nice too. Further announcements will take place regarding activities on the day. If you are yet to sign up or if you know people who might like to contribute but haven't please complete your online form at Link] target="_blank">www.wearewimbledonfund.com. Please do it now. Or you could always just watch the Accrington highlights on loop instead! THANK YOU. For an explanation of what the fund is all about please visit the website

  [2013-02-13 08:26:42] The Big Football Tag!  

Calling Link] target="_blank">AFC Wimbledon fans. Jonjo needs our help.

To commemorate 20 years since Bobby Moore’s premature death from bowel cancer and raise awareness of the disease (and in the process hopefully raise at least £100,000 for the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK), the nationwide ‘Big Football Tag’ visits AFC Wimbledon at 2am, Sunday 16th  February.

This bold and ambitious project will see a signed captain’s armband collected from every league ground in England & Wales in a giant game of ‘tag’, culminating in a walk from Wembley stadium to West Ham’s Upton Park ground for a commemorative service at the Bobby Moore statue. The armbands will subsequently be auctioned off for the charity.

The Big Football Tag is the latest high-profile event organised by prolific campaigner and fundraiser, 11 year old West Ham fan Jonjo Heuerman.

On Thursday 14 February, the sash containing the armbands will start its journey from Swansea City FC -> Cardiff City FC -> Bristol City FC -> Bristol Rovers FC -> Swindon Town FC -> Reading  -> Aldershot Town FC  who will deliver the sash to AFC Wimbledon at 2am, where we will walk and hand over the sash to Fulham FC at 5am. They will then march to Chelsea FC and finally deliver the sash to Jonjo at West Ham on Sunday at 10am.

AFC Wimbledon commercial Executive, Jim Piddington and a few other Wimbledon fans will be walking from AFC Wimbledon’s Cherry Red Records Stadium to Fulham FC’s Craven Cottage this Sunday after receiving the sash.

If you are interested in joining the ‘Big Football Tag’ then consider joining AFC Wimbledon supporters for your part of the journey and wearing the team’s colours with pride.

  [2012-04-10 01:04:06] Billy Knott is a Womble* t-shirt available. Order here now  

WUP are proud to present the latest in our limited edition t-shirt range,

" Billy Knott is a Womble*"

Printed yellow on blue (other colours may become available), the t-shirts are available in all sizes from Small to XXL by mail order only, £10 each.  Collection from Kingsmeadow is possible if sufficient notice is given.

Please e-mail content@wup.me.uk to place your order now.


We have been asked by our lawyers to point out to potential purchasers the following:

1. Billy Knott is not actually a Womble. He is a human being. He does not go round collecting rubbish off Wimbledon Common, although we are unaware of any voluntary work he might do in his spare time. Nor does he necessarily live in a burrow.

2. The inference in the text of the t-shirt is meant only to portray that he is a dedicated and professional footballer, who has shown dedication to his craft whilst temporarily playing for us while on loan from Sunderland AFC and, in doing so, has gained the affection of manyWimbledonfans.

3. Furthermore we do not imply any ownership of Billy Knott past the constricts of his loan agreement with AFC Wimbledon. We are quite aware that his stay with us is merely temporary, which - for the more literal of our customers - is indicated by the asterisk incorporated within the design.

4. This humorous tee shirt is for entertainment purposes only and we strongly recommend that those of a more literal, sensible persuasion purchase one of the other t-shirts from our delightful range.
