On This Day in 2005
Captain Steve Butler was part of an impressive back line as the Dons narrowly beat high flying Fisher Athletic in a Ryman Premier League clash at Kingsmeadow. "At last we seem to be getting the results our performances deserve," manager Dave Anderson said. "They are my favourites for the title so I knew that we would have to be at our best today and our game plan worked very well. I thought we were well worth the win." Despite completing a league double over the Fish, Justin Edinburgh's side were victorious when the side's met in an end of season play-off semi final.

Another bunch of what must be season ticket returns have been released. If we sell these I think the home area will be the most full it has been so far this season - as in actual numbers in the ground.

To be fair, I don’t think that the presentation to WD was for his PPG, rather it was (1) for keeping us up the previous year, from what looked an impossible position (2) because there was a perception- valid or otherwise- that he was treated shabbily by the club, primarily for non-football reasons. These may or may not have been objectively good reasons for giving the presentation to WD but, as it was from individuals giving their own money, not from the club, it really is only their business.

Oh that's nice. A PPG of 1.10 gets you a watch from the fans. Fuck knows what Downes would have got if he had achieved a PPG of 1.4 before being sacked for being stupid.

Nick - if nothing else, the food trucks should force the stadium caterers to up their game - I hear the West Stand food is not great.

Credit where it is due for a couple of things this year which are real improvements (1) I think that the “ground guide” which we put out on the OS is actually very clear and helpful and would be really welcome particularly for occasional supporters (2) having the food trucks at the ground, in addition to the usual burgers/ pies etc., is a fantastic idea - after 20 years it is a novelty to find myself thinking that it will be nice to get something to eat at the ground, and expecting it to be good, rather than the usual experience of having to go for whatever is on offer, out of pure desperation, then feeling sick afterwards because it is so unhealthy

Well certainly if the players are checking how many are leaving and arriving we'll suffer. Under Ardley players used to wander out for the second half and you felt it took them a few minutes to be fully mentally alert. I haven't really noticed that with Robinson.

Looking at the stats this season we perform at our worst just before and just after half time. Maybe this is due to the crowd and atmosphere as large numbers are leaving and returning to their seats during this time.

[82.lo.gg.ed] 
Unless you believe the crowd makes no difference to the players performance.
Robbo’s already tasted a 3 defeat run including a defeat to a pile of toilet. After tomorrow we have a run of games which we shouldn’t really be happy to lose any of them (depending on when Pompey sack Cowley maybe) so at the moment I’m feeling pretty buoyant in 14th with enjoyable football for the most part. If we can start adding some first half goals we stand a good chance of our best L1 finish.

I don't understand this idea that if only Palmer had sat out Arsenal he'd have been available for all the games since. There was clearly an underlying problem that needed to be addressed. He shouldn't have played versus Arsenal but the corollary that he'd be playing this weekend if he hadn't is pure speculation.

Spit even at that stage I wasn't convinced by Glynn. We won a lot of games with very little possession. That isn't a recipe for sustain success

Of course after 14 games with 20 points last season,Glyn was the messiah, just shows that injuries and covid cancellation and loss of any form can turn quite quickly hero to zero.

I think we are in a much better position than we were last year. When I watched Hodges team we looked a poorly coached team wit no distinct pattern of play. We now have a style of play and fresh young players. Last week's starting 11 was understandable when you look at Elvis having a thigh strain during the week and McCormick suffering from a virus. I also think that Chelsea may well have said that you can't start Lawrence after the u20 game so I'm guessing that Robbos hands were tied. The big mistake he has made is allowing Palmer to call the shots but he will learn from that. I thought Wednesday's game was one of the best of the season because of the way we dominated in the 1st and dug in for the 2nd. This team is fun to watch, young, vibrant and never gives up. We need depth up front but on a small budget not bad at all. We may nose dive but I think if that happens it will be because of injuries rather than lack of quality. After the last few seasons I'm more than happy that I can more often than not walk out of Plough lane have enjoyed a game

Keefy, yeah but last season we then went on a 20 game run (or something like that) where we didn't win a game

Hash yes obvious but if we don't win tomorrow we'll be short of Glyn's points total at the same stage last year.

One thing missing on Essential CR Stadium Guide, under 'Matchday Programmes' Please be aware that all Programme Sellers will cease selling at 2.45pm, so if you arrive after that - tough luck! If you still want one after the game - they'll be on sale in the Club Shop.

[82.lo.gg.ed] 
How many hundred sales do we lose every match by this club-enforced protocol?
Keefy that's an if and but too because you get to choose how many games to include in the 'form guide'. 6 games and we are second bottom, 4 games and we are 12th, 8 games and we are 11th

Only getting a draw against Gillingham was an outrageous fluke, thanks to a monstrous deflection for them in the last minute of extra time that defined the concept of "against the run of play". We should be at least two points ahead of our current total. Whatever the flaws of the current team, we are miles ahead of any previous AFCW team in this division.

So many ifs and buts, Fact, we are second bottom in the form guide. I would say at least a point is needed tomorrow.
