Also most of South London is well served by BR stations so no need for the tube, Wimbledon has both so very well served by public transport

Yes, Shergy love, it’s been said on here many times over the years that we have to play a more pragmatic/prescriptive style to compete at this level. Often by people who are obsessed about the budget table 😉

Some even said we should abolish the Academy. No names mentioned, Surrey Bob.
Terry Brown back at Aldershot- assisting new manager Mark Molesley.

secret agent I remember being told at college that the rail system was very much based on what we now think of as more central London because most of what is now south London wasn't really London at that time. Trains (both) only came out to Wimbledon initially cos lots of "important" people tended to live in the area. There was more city based activity in north London.

KD, I don't know if anyone said it was impossible 'for us to be an attractive, passing side in League 1 - and win - on our budget' However if MR achieves it by taking us to a top half finish this season on what he says is a bottom 3 budget he will have done an exceptional job. If he can do it consistently over a period of say 5 years or more he will probably go down as a legendary manager up there alongside Batsford, Bassett and Gould

Just watched back the Plymouth game in full and that first half was as good as any we have produced this season. Two big chances for Will on 16’ and 20’ minutes. Don’t miss Will & Anthony on our SNL on a Monday tonight.

There is DNA in a club, Robbo recognises that and has a squad and playing style to fit with ours. That's why he's popular and will go on to be a very successful Dons manager.

Spit - are you still doubting :)
Basically, we now have players technically good enough to consistently open up L1 defences through possession football - and are encouraged to do so by someone who believes in it/them. That’s mostly down to youth development - something not every manager has truly believed in - and pulling our finger out on recruitment.

[109.lo.gg.ed] 
ie recruiting from some of the biggest clubs in Europe on our doorstep rather than sign rejects from Gillingham and Millwall
I think one of the best things so far is that we've not looked out of place on the pitch against anyone whereas in each of the last few seasons there have been games where we've been reduced to spectators. Meanwhile, Joey Barton feeling the love from Rovers fans [Link]

My son has been discharged from hospital but is very unlikely to be well enough to attend the Arsenal game. A real shame for him if he can't make it.

I didn't say we were Crazy Gang mark II, if you read what I wrote I said The Crazy Gang was dead long ago. It's a matter of perception rather than being right or wrong, we both enjoy what we're watching, which is great.

I think the key is just having an identity full stop. We haven't had one for the last few years - and now we do. Even if things like 'hard work' are things every team should be doing. Robbo deserves credit for that.

Hard work and organisation etc. are sine qua non for any team (in any sport), really. That doesn’t make us Crazy Gang MkII, however nostalgic people are for their youth 😁

If we keep clocking up yellow cards at the rate we have been and there are lots of suspensions, we might be obliged to play 3-3-2 as a formation at some point!

Ex www.wup.me.uk - The home of WU
I think almost everyone would have taken 3-3-2 after 8 games at the start of the season. But anyway people are optimistic not only because of the results but because of what we are seeing on the pitch compared to the last few years.

Let's see where this season takes us before getting carried away with our Barcelona style.had a good start last season and we only taken 5 points from 4 home games

The team I watched growing up contained a lot of homegrown players, worked hard on fitness, organisation and set pieces. Cost less than the competition but held their own through belief and hard work.

Strange not to see the similarities in the 2021 squad
In truth, we are in a different galaxy from the Crazy Gang days. Aside from the possession/passing style and sophisticated coaching, players are encouraged to think for themselves and play what’s in front of them. Back then, players followed strict orders in adherence to a very prescriptive (anti-football) style of play. Downes & Hodges were similar in their management style.

Pleased that Robinson is disproving the argument repeated many times on here that it’s not possible for us to be an attractive, passing side in League 1 - and win - on our budget.
Went down to get some shrew tickets around midday still people turning up for Arsenal tickets so we might be taking a few more up there Wednesday

If there is space I sometimes wander down to the scoreboard corner and watch the banter which is quite amusing. Sods law that against Oxford we scored all our goals near the end I usually sit. More fool me. Then again watching Oxford fans lose their marbles made up for it.
