KD - Partly, but not totally as you seem to imply. And why not, he played a crucial role. That does not absolve us from losing our composure and discipline.

Silk I agree with your underlying message but as a punter I have to face reality and this squad with these tactics are not gonna fight it out with a team at the top of the league. Would absolutely love Wigan to have headed home today, even with three points, knowing they’d been in a game. But as things are even the bottom club didn’t go home feeling like that. I don’t happily accept defeat but i’m not living in fantasy land either.

(Not accusing you of living in fantasy land - I think we all want the picture you’re painting.
I don’t blame Forrester for his red I do 100% blame the referee for creating that situation. He was biased in handing out cards and I partly suspect he got what he was hoping for by getting to book someone for dissent for telling him that. The second was poor but not a straight red and equally other fouls went unpunished. I’d rather have a Forrester who cares than the (un)dynamic duo who just drift around a match.

And you could see who it matters to from things like Charles’ reaction and Long dealing with the idiot twice trying to body check him - which should have been a yellow the same as Deji’s one.
HRB* But hey-ho. Thought we'd lose, but not by that much. At least we tried. Win some, lose some? After the match we found Ian Marriott's bag in the back bar - we gave it to that young and handsome Dutch Dons Trust board member (Cormack I think???).

We shouldn't be writing off next Saturday but looking to thrash Bradford for being on the same pitch as us. No more saying we don't expect anything because they are SOOOOOOOO much better than us. We have beaten Bradford before and we can beat them again.

It bothers me that people are addressing Wigan in the same terms as the big Premiership teams. They are nothing like it. They got relegated last season. There is no excuse for us losing to any League One side 4-0 - ever. How has this defeatist attitude prevailed over the club? My God, it is Wigan not Manchester City.

We need someone with the spit and vinegar of Harry leading us through this fight.
OI I don’t think any player missing the Bradford match is going to cost us points we might otherwise have got.

Another game to write off. Concentrate on the winnable ones like Plymouth or Gills at home.
we spend most of our time bashing the ref and other teams for their gamesmanship. Has it not dawned on you yet that we're now a professional football league club. You get no points for occupying the moral high ground

well I enjoyed that for 50 mins but we look doomed, but maybe the transfer window freebee will save us. Kennedy with Meades in front please

Need a player with a physical presence up top. More a more blindingly obvious with each game. I'd be amazed if that wasn't addressed in Jan.

Soares missed a very good chance in the second half don't know why he didn't just stab it in and Appiah (who has flattered to deceive in my humble) could of lobbed the Wigan keeper a few seconds after coming on. Apart from a couple of scrambles from corners and a Forrester shot that was about it from an attacking perspective.
So many extremes, we weren't that dreadful but have been a relegation prospect from the start of the season (I know some still need to pretend we have a better squad). Yes, the Wigan team made the most of things and the referee made mistakes but Forrester is entirely to blame for his red card. I'm more annoyed he misses the next match through stupidity that that it contributed to an unkind score line. I hope Santa is well equipped with senses of proportion as gifts.

Never a 4 nil drunbbing as the score line suggests. We were well and truly in that game if it wasn’t for the Wigan antics (they remind me of Wycombe). For all their nice passing they’ve lost my respect for their gamemanship or lack of, trying to get players sent off and manipulating the officials at every opportunity.

Disgraceful
Sorry KD. I'm not sure about all those on here, but in discussions at the ground that I wasn't the only one who thought at half-time that we might be able to get at least a point out of it. Yes, it was clear that it would be tough, but it was a possibility. Soares remains far from convincing (and should have scored at 0-2) and Jon Meades, whose heart is always in his performance, had probably the weakest game I've seen him play for us.

I tell you what watching the City v Spurs drubbing I reckon those north London tossers are there for the taking in the cup. If we can look even half as good as Man City we’ll progress.

Oh.
Not a good day at the Millingham retirement village for “Championship quality” dossers. Senior players and management can delude themselves that we matched for Wigan for an hour, but zero shots on target tells the story. I’m afraid the 2017-18 AFC Wimbledon vintage is almost totally devoid of character and is poorly coached with barely a League 2 level of tactical sophistication.

Maybe the best use of the Wembley bonus is to pay off the contracts of Ardley and Cox?
Airsy yes for abusing the ref

Didn’t see but wouldn’t surprise me if he was cos he was fuming about some of what went on with the ref. Also that back heel flick over the bar was amazing. At 1-0 we were actually battering them for the following minutes until the red card. I actually think the result wasn’t a foregone conclusion with 11.

Can Abdou and Hartigan be that bad in training that they’re not worth a go? I honestly think we’d be able to play through the middle a bit at that.
Was Darius booked after the final whistle?

Bad signings we are stuck with not sure a big lump up front will be the answer with our useless midfielders signed by Ardley . Hopefully Parrett will come back soon but no doubt Ardley will persist with at lease 2 out of the three donkeys presently draining our wage bill.

Yes the ref was poor and they were a bunch of arseholes but Soares could easily been sent off before harry. Harry's first booking was pointless and then to make a tackle like that when your on a booking was stupid. As per normal this season we really didn't look like scoring and even if we had 11 men at 1-0 we were toast. We had a reasonable run didn't get ourselves out of the mess and are now head high in the shite. There is no good anybody calling for the managers head because those that matter are to in awe of NA and therefore whether you are for or against It isn't changing anytime soon

At half time I thought we might nick a win today. We played OK in the first half - better than the stats suggested. Not reading too much into it in terms of what it means for our season. We've screwed up too many times against poor teams and not taken enough points when we have played well. That's why we're down the bottom.

And yes Powell was repulsive
I think this is a massive downside to the layout at KM. I’ve seen quite a few linesmen bottle it in front of the away fans in that corner. They are allowed way to close in that open sectioning.

Airsy at the time I would have agreed but I could see the referee looking direct at the Wigan players taunting the Wimbledon fans and he didn’t even move to tell them to stop it. That is the only explanation for why he wasn’t booked. Anyone else notice the one Wigan booking was a player already being lined up to be subbed before the booking? Agree though, the individual with the flag in that corner took the easy way out. Should have changed the flag to white.
