I thought the issue the EFL had was less the scoreboard (i.e. just MK), but more to do with our Programme not mentioning them. I think it was a misleading media article which focussed more on the scoreboard.

Re the EFL nonsense, the point is you dont have to include the suffix for a One-Team town. We talk about playing Rotherham or Wigan or Northampton, not Rotherham United, etc. Have a look at the current BBC League One fixture list - the only teams (apart from you-know-who) that are given their full name are Bristol and Oxford - for obvious reasons.

Naz, my understanding is that Casuals didn't want Kingston as they were worried about them taking over.

All day in hospital for a 10 minute procedure, yawn
I emailed the EFL and they've tried to flog me an investment opportunity. [Link]

I thought Kingstonian were having a ground built for them in Chesington?

Cheshire - I remember Croker saying something along those lines back then. It defeats the object of being able to win promotion and getting to the level you deserve to be at for what you do on the pitch. We deserved to be able to play at Anfield, Old Trafford etc because we earned the right to do so and if we are in with the big boys, then they should have to play at places like Plough lane. They are not royalty, they are just another football, just like us.

Sharing at the Casuals makes sense for the Ks. Much closer than Leatherhead and in their borough. Met Police would also have made sense, though that's not in the borough.

The Casuals kit is the best going. Iconic. Like Harlequins for egg-chasing.

I'm sure we once played Villa away in an FA Cup tie in the 80s. Because we had to replay the match in the round before only a few days before the Villa game, it had Aston Villa vs Opponents on the ticket....

... so where is the problem?
Ted Croker was a Kingstonian fan IIRC hence he was probably jealous of our success

FFS thats the 3rd time I was on the way to Merstham to watch the u23s only for it to be called off, perhaps we ought to pay their groundsman or something like that

The EFL seem to like flexing their muscles every now and then, love to show 'I'm in charge'. Jumping on a nothing like this just shows what a hair trigger they have as far as AFCW is concerned. We hurt the poor scummer's feelings over a proggy and a scoreboard. Big deal. Our feelings were ignored over something far more important than that, but didn't see anyone jumping in on our behalf. The EFL should just tell the scum to live with the stench they caused and stop whinging every time someone puts a peg on their nose when in contact. Grow some nads, EFL, you are pathetic.

can't make a silk purse from a pig's ear. can't make a proper football club by stealing it from someone else
Anyone remember summer of 86? Ted croker - something on the lines of "to have teams like liverpool, man utd etc to have to play at plough lane is should not happen" or something along those lines - if football authorities want respect, they need to show some themselves

Alex, I'm more worried by the comment saying should we go down, the Pigg would be a decent L2 striker. ;)

we need another quality signing to make a decent fist of staying up IMO
lets look at this: scoreboard - a virtual non issue - as SA says, 1 the away fans can't see it, 2 other clubs use abbreviations etc, - Bristol rovers had us as Wim for example (any point - remember away to Coventry many moons ago, we were 1-0 down, and the scoreboard said 1-0, we went 3-1, scoreboard still displayed 1-0, cov get 1 back, immediately changed to 3-2, was that disrespecting us?, and as kyle says, we didn't ave a scoreboard until about 3-4 years ago, and it had a fault for a while. Ticket? - anyone got their '88 fa cup final ticket? I challenge you to find Wimbledon on it, because it's not there - disrespectful? - programme - as Spartan says, hoe fans would potentially not buy it. hospitality, if you offer me hospitality, surely I have the right to decline?

"He looked a handful when he played against us for Southend a couple of seasons back. Wimbledon do tend to get the best out of players who go there. I thought Barcham and Fuller were destined to play non league football after they left us, but both have done well for the Dons." Read more: [Link]

Spartan I totally agree, that whole directors instruction shows they are looking to find things to have a go at us over.

On the programme if wed produced the standard one there would be no purchases from home fans. Would EFL compensate us for that? Or if just cover it would have been ripped off by many, or most fans and that creates a litter, slip and fire hazard. Would the WFL prefer that? Why not just accept hoke and visitors and basic stuff
Think theyre probably most concerned about their name on the match tickets, given thats a contract between club and buyer. Either way, theyre making themselves seem a bit silly.

I don't think the scoreboard is the issue, as the Franchise fans couldn't see it from their position inside the ground. The most obvious issue seems to be ignoring them on/in the programme on the night.

Whatever, it really is a petty response by the EFL and only serves to make them look as ridiculous by the wider sporting world as we all know them to be.
