On This Day in 1961
The gates to Richmond Road were locked on a midweek crowd of 9,870 before the Dons hit Whitley Bay for six in an FA Amateur Cup third round tie. The second replay at neutral Kingston attracted huge local interest as Geoff Hamm masterminded the demolition of the plucky North Easterners. Brian Martin grabbed a hat trick as Wimbledon won 6-1 to set up a quarter final meeting with Walthamstow Avenue at Plough Lane.

'Escaping the Ryman', the latest part of the Dons' story has been released and covers the year Terry Brown's men won their way into the Conference South. The new manager was abused by fans when his new-look side started the season badly and it was too late to overhaul Chelmsford City by the time the team really hit form. In the end it came down to a play-off final showdown at Staines which was just 10 minutes from ending in disaster...Please let us have your recollections of those heady days.

Wow. 5 home league defeats on the spin is already a record for Liverpool. Could it be six?

Is The Long Room any good? Probably the only Tooting pub i've not been to in the last couple of years (pre- Covid)

Shame (more so than usual) that the pubs are closed. Today would be one of the fiew days that I would venture out to the Bad-Lands of The Long Room (The Mitre, for people who used to take the 44, 77 or 88 back in the 80s). Will ManUre stop Citeh 2 (I think) behind Ajax's record winning streak or will Citeh make them (figuratively) breath in their exhaust fumes? I can JUST about see you. In the rear-view mirror. With binoculars. Who knows? I remember sitting in The Castle with The Angry Elf watching the 6-1 at Old Trafford, going "what?" to each other as the last few went in. Even as a non-partisan, the pub can occasionally be a great place to watch football. Or rugby. Or cricket. But not tennis.

Doughtmeister. I share your disbelief over "official Covid deaths". This confusion over death certificates and 28 days after identifying covid etc. suggests at best there is confusion and disagreement with differences in interpretation.

I prefer to base a judgement on the statistical increase in deaths compared to the previous 5 year average. Unfortunately this is higher than "Official Covid deaths"
(Said before not much I agree with from our commentary) but definitely the comment about Palmer looking different (better) shape seemed true. I'd wonder now if we rushed him back too early cos we needed another option and that's where the next round of problems with him started. He looked unfit before.

Simmie - exactly we need to get more talking and co-ordination. Was noticeable McLoughlin (who generally seems to be a communicator in the team) was dropping into that slot (just not his strength at all). If we could get Longman to do it (especially since he does like to shoot), it will improve it as well. Just little things like that. (Noticeable teams can crowd Pigott and basically take him mentally and physically out of the game, because there's no other threat, if other players would start banging in shots regularly, not even goals just shots, the threat would free up Pigott more).

Lurker - I feel like Piggot going wide wouldn't be a problem if the LAM or the RAM would be comfortable becoming a striker and replacing - in an ideal world you want those three positions to be interchangeable. While we are playing one of our many central midfielders out there or Longman, we can't do it

Enjoy
The only weaknesses with the formation yesterday that might cause us problems, one it relies on players like Woodyard and Nightingale having the ball at their feet a lot (which isn't a strength) and two Pigott likes coming wide to get on the ball etc but that left McLoughlin playing centre forward with no more or even less chance of him winning headers than Pigott. (That thing of Pigott liking to come wide to get the ball also left us with no one in the box on several occasions). So in fact there's still things that can be improved in there - which is a good thing as we've got a win and 2 draws against mid table sides whilst still evolving and developing under the new tactis/approach.

Having just re-watched the Rudoni headed 'goal' - the Blackpool players appeal for handball - but lino definitely flags for offside. Difficult to tell from camera angle, but does look just offside.

AFC played the best I have seen lately and now that we have 2 good strikers for home games revert to 4 4 2 and really go for it. Aim for 6-2 and we might be celebrating with 4 2

Frustratingly, Sky highlight do not show Rudi's disallowed header. Those who did not buy match on iFollow will need to wait for extended highlights to be released.
