On This Day in 1989
FA Cup holders Wimbledon came through a tough examination to win a hard fought fourth round tie at Villa Park. A Vinnie Jones goal on the hour was all that separated the sides at the end but the visitors had Hans Segers to thank for a series of saves including a second half penalty stop and his defence covered manfully to prevent Villa equalising after Eric Young was sent off for elbowing David Platt with seven minutes remaining. "We worked hard to win the cup in May and today proved that we will work just as hard to keep it," a delighted Bobby Gould said at the end.

Can it really be more than a decade since the Dons regained their Football League place in such dramatic fashion at the City of Manchester stadium? The new edition of The Historical Don carries photos and a match report from every game that year as well as the memories of Terry Brown, Erik Samuelson and a comment from Martin Samuel in the Daily Mail. The fanzine also carries an interview with 1980s star Paul Fishenden and relives his part in the 1985 FA Cup run, recalls rivalries with Tooting and Tottenham and remembers Ben Thatcher and Andy Thorn.

Well chuffed with the Brown signing, hopefully he’ll turn out to be just as good as Fuller was for us.

Lee Brown is a good defender, watched him closely a few times for Portsmouth ,be lucky what with his parents being in the cab trade had plenty of chat,so good to get a vocal player in..a good consistent experience pro..

What's not to like
I wonder if the twists and turns Brown mentions are a reference to the tinpot cock-up Slow Train mentioned on here yesterday (or was it the day before?).

Good point MAD - Robbo expects our full backs to get forward lots and they have to do a lot of recovery runs. One worries about that with Brown given Pompey dropped him as he couldn't play wing back.

Credit where due to the football panel for getting the LB in, if we can get a decent forward then to some extent we can take the view that that aspect of the process does work ok, let’s hope..,

Bit of context here. Barry Fuller was ace for the Dons and from the age of 30, rounded on for being old and slow, not least because Nil’s tactics hung him out to dry frequently. Yet he was our best defender. So let’s not hang Brown out to dry - whose a decent defender - when at 31 he can’t do the 80 yard recovery runs because Robinson is at times, tactically wet. And likes wing backs not full backs.

Hoping his signing is a sharpening up of our shape
The rumour mill has finally churned out an update. We are very close to signing a striker, he might even be from quite high up the list.

Rudi is contracted until Summer 23 and hadn't been offered a new deal as of mid-December. In case this info is doubted it came from Rudi himself when I bumped into him buying a christmas tree the day after Accy away :)

Swipestation looks quite interesting, I assume the bar staff may pre pour a bunch of pints, and then its like a beer voucher system. Should be quicker as long as they separate it into its own fast lane.

I wonder if we have released a bit more into the budget because we have a better idea on attendances and revenue from hospitality?

And a bit more confidence we won't be lumbered paying 10% for all of the briding loan debt
Trebor - not sure that's entirely accurate re. Osew. Most of his best performances this season have been at right back. There are some advantages to having him on the right (there's a blog out there on it!) but I'm not sure he's the long term solution there.

I imagine we may have paid Brown a signing on fee. Presumably he's eligible to play tomorrow?

Pompey have been clearing out some of their higher earners so doubt we’d have paid much - though Robbo does suggest we dipped into the Palmer money a bit.

Trebor- Osew does a pretty good job. Sadly that cannot be said for NGW.

Trebor, just says"after leaving Portsmouth". Not as clear as Pompey saying it was a free transfer.

Think Osew will be 1st choice RB tbh - even though he is left footed would prefer him to CW
