And me too.
Looks like James O Halloran is in the match day squad as well, apparently been looking pretty impressive for the development side, can play left back or left wing and obviously he was signed from Maidenhead after the window he will now be able to at least get on the bench for the first team now January has come

Our Twitter was hilarious with Chris, and used to get picked up by national papers (the transfer deadline day stuff was great). Other clubs still manage it without being incendiary (look at Roma's ffs) so it just seems to be our approach of wanting to be an absolute wet lettuce of an account and hoping that just our name does the talking.

Back to being slightly mischievous and actually fun to read please, I can do without the retweets from Kibbleborne Borough FC U10's about how their striker used to play for our U5's.
In terms of second comings, no jury could fail to convict ben D of being The Artist Formally Known As bb74.

but it would be thrown out by the Appeal Court on the simple basis that no-one could go from England to America and actually IMPROVE their spelling, punctuation and grammar smiley
Top of the morning Mr. Giant. The evidence for the prosecution is an in-depth knowledge of the academy (I think 1FTR was an academy coach), seems to know everybody pretty well (suggesting close links to the club) and is a complete pisshead (as was 1FTR).

If there was 1 poster we could have had back from the past I'd have picked the tarmac licker.
Also, I'm a big fan of the new-found positivity on here but I should point out the fact that we are bottom and we're away to a team in 8th and fighting for a play-off spot so, in the un-thinkable circumstances of us losing today, I hope that people don't throw their toys out of the pram in here tonight.

Laurence - sack the intern, send him/her back to Barnet. What's changed that we couldn't have someone like Chris Atkinson now? Have we signed a contract that our Twitter account can't be remotely entertaining?

I remember the days of 10k retweets in the Jan window
morning slow. I'm interested in your assertion that middle aged don is the new incarnation of One For The Road. I tended to agree until a couple of days ago when he made some allusion to poncy lager. o4tr is famously a tarmac drinker - and used to regularly rip the piss out of me and trigs (amongst others) over our preference for the apple-y stuff.

OI's comms have been awful lately, why is he only making guest appearances? I heard a rumour he's on a general post strike until Kyle is freed?

Can I add I don’t see anything on here as bullying. During my meeting in the summer with the club I mentioned how the podcast communicated regularly on match days with our listeners to see what they liked and didn’t like, what subjects they wanted discussed and then used this to help for the podcast content. We also did a survey last summer for people to tell us what they thought. These can be risky as they can tell you things you don’t want to hear or be critical, however it’s invaluable as it can only help you. I encouraged the club do something similar as this would help them also as like anything a club does, some people like it, some people don’t.

Well the sky blues fans forum have Coventry winning this one easily. However just in case, they are getting in their excuses already as there is much talk about us being physical. I am glad that at least their fans, and hopefully their players, think they just have to turn up to get the three points.

Wu - I'm sure "make two Twitter posts and see if it is better in the morning" was sound advice but unfortunately they couldn't read your writing.

guest appearance
The Dons Trust is even worse at selling itself via social media. No Facebook, clunky website and the board seems to need an hour-long meeting before deciding on the precise wording of a tweet (having voting on it first, of course)

Think it was secret agent that posted on here that slavin wasn’t well hence the game at orient wasn’t covered at all. There is no issue with that - but ffs, it wouldn’t be difficult to say that? Sorry folks, no updates from our game at orient today as Chris has a dose of the flu. We wish him well and will post a write up on the game this evening - for live update orient have confirmed they will tweet during the game. COYD

I don’t want to get into a slagging of match as I have many good friends at the club, but I will mention a few things. I saw the equipment West Ham had as I was in the ground early and got talking to them as they couldn’t find where to get press passes from. They thought I was official from Wimbledon, mentioned I wasn’t and they were surprised because of all the equipment I had. They had a suitcase style of equipment and there was only two of them at the game. They mentioned that their funding for media equipment was nothing special even though they were a premiership club. I saw the equipment they had and it was very similar to what we have for the podcast FBL. This is the same equipment I offered to the club in the summer to help with the quality of thier match day WDON Bitesize and post match interviews even though that would make my day longer and busier, but as a Wimbledon fan I am keen for the club to produce stuff that is as good as it can be. My offer was appreciated by the club and they said they would be in contact. Not heard anything since.

None of that mitigates how slowly information trickles out to the supporters

And I see plenty of quirk, humour and innovation on official media accounts that obviously don’t envoke ire from the efl
Thanks. So who is guiding Slavin on comms? Who is his line manager? Palmer?

KD - as little as possible, I hope and expect. :o) I do social media for my business, but not the club. Have though stepped in on Twitter in previous seasons, when we have been short of bodies due to illness. Also do some oversight on interns too. My media role on a match day is varied depending on whether home or away.

MAD - 1) The club has an intern, which fits that parameter to a degree. There are so many rules laid down by both the FA and EFL. What the club did when Chris Atkinson handled twitter, could not be done today. 2) I rather suspect the club do that already and will do more in the future. I will be chatting with West Ham people myself to continue the conversation we started in August - would have loved an away tie, so we could see their complete set up. Presently watching Brentford very closely as they move nearer and nearer completing on Lionel Road. Good blueprint in my view. 3) See 1 above about parameters and rules. I love Ray's tweets and mickey taking, and would love to see the club do the same. However ......... EFL and FA would regularly be calling asking for explanations, I rather suspect. In my view, we do not do enough through social media to drive more traffic to the club shop. I am always putting suggestions forward. 99 out of 100 rejected no doubt. Here is the point though, I do not kick my colleagues (many in here seem to delight in their bullying), I have conversations and see if we can find a new and better way forward. Keep the conversation civilised would be my request.
