Blue, Sheff Utd away during the miners' strike was quite edgy. I didn't help myself by going in the home end (not an experienced traveller at the time). I had to remain completely silent when we scored. There were some big ugly bastards in my end

Looking back at our stats in the premier league we hardly got any pens. Deano scored a pen in 93/94 against Everton up there and then the following season against Forest at home. Scored from the spot again. Think that was the game an elephant was brought onto the pitch.

He scored a pen against Liverpool in the league cup in 93 when we won and they did the aeroplane celebration at the end
Good news on Nick - more evidence the club is structurally catching up with our league place.

Kt2 I missed Fash's opener as we got caught up in traffic. I suppose didnt help getting lost in Croydon. Blissett got the second and Deano scored our third with a thumper of a shot. Think that was only his 2nd league goal of the season but went on another good goalscoring run. Trying to think what pens Deano scored that season. The Liverpool cup game maybe.

Good stuff re NR. Should help with the refinancing amongst other things.

"Members of the Dons Trust Board and existing members of the PLC approached Nick Robertson and asked him to consider joining the PLC board - he did not seek this role of his own volition"
Agree that it makes total sense for NR to be on the PLC board - not so much for his investment (welcome though that has been) but more that we need his expertise and business-minded approach

B75 - that 93 SwinDon game was my first too, some coincidence. Was Holdsworth's goal a penalty or was that another game?

I seem to remember having to go for an ill-timed shit under the Holmesdale Rd stand while DH scored a pen and thinking the roof was going to cave in on me. Certainly helped the brown trout on its way back out to sea.
Wimbledon team bus on fire, not the team.

i think the only time I experienced a tense atmosphere was the Everton game in 94 when we went 2-0 up. You could sense even before the game the tension in the air and even the police said be on your guard if things don't go Everton's way.

I'm sure they set Wimbledon's team on fire the day before. God knows what they would have done to us fans if we had won and Everton had gone down.
CW, yep was a bit bonkers. Fans were throwing anything they could get their hands on. Scary. I remember working over at Heathrow and there was a chelsea fan who said as the away leg was sold out chelsea fans without a ticket could watch in a local cinema. Chelsea lost 2-0 and the cinema was trashed.

No problem with that, personally
I went to that Chelsea v Boro game totally bonkers afterwards as you say people in the top tier were trying to get onto the pitch to attack the away fans

Kt2 I remember us being on MoD first when we beat Newcastle 3-2 in 94. Games against Newcastle were exciting until Daglish took over and made them boring hahaha

Hash, I sometimes went to Chelsea in the mid 80s maybe a couple of games a year. Saw Segers play against them for Forest. My first Dons games was v SwinDon in 93 a 3-0 win and preferred the atmosphere. Thought the fan base were a nicer bunch so continued. The Liverpool cup game 2-2 got me totally hooked so kept going. We finished 6th that year so a pretty good season to start following the Dons.

Went to Chelsea v Boro in 88 which Chelsea lost so were relegated. Full scale riot afterwards which kinda put me off. Watched a few games at Brentford but couldnt really get into it. After my first Dons game you get that feeling that its just right.
And as I've mentioned previously it was a Wimbledon FC football course (week long, free match tickets at the end) that got me to that first game, and that was that. Helped by the fact that some family friends had STs and took me to games from then on.

Sure the club is looking to get that kind of thing up and running again asap. In fact I saw a sign in Wimbledon Park (the actual park) on Sunday advertising similar.
Hash - exactly the same story for me (well, the squad from about '93 onwards pulled me in). Never forget going to Selhurst as a kid to see us play teams like Man U, Arsenal etc, always expecting to lose. Looking back through rose tinted specs, I recall we got a result as often as not. It didn't matter how well we played though, we were always the last game on MOTD.

Jesus, I've turned into a misty eyed old 'back in my day' fucker. It just creeps up on you doesn't it.
Alan IoW @ 08:10 Sheff signed Ramsdale for 18.5M and he had a season of premier league experience at that point. Bursik has a dozen championship games -- he's not going for anywhere near 18M even any time soon.

Tomato yeah going for the draw was always going to be dangerous with the away goals rule. I thought we looked comfortable in the home leg until Leo made an unnecessary foul for the Leicester free kick which they scored from. If we made the final we'd won it no problem. Not showing any disrespect to Middlesboro but I think we would have beaten them.

Hash - that was also the season that my son (then age 6) started taking an interest in football following Euro 96. I was never a regular at Plough Lane or SP prior to that, but was certainly hooked by the end of the season!

I’ve just had an electrician round to sort out light fittings and I’ve opened the door in my Dons top and he’s got his Tractors top on so had a bonkers hour and a half of him slagging off Marcus Evans,Norwich City and Sadiq Khan - he didn’t like it when I mentioned when I first met my wife,(a Stowmartian) that we were in the Ryman league and Ipswich were challenging for promotion to the premiership and now we’re in the same league as each other
