On This Day in 1984
The lowest league crowd at Ninian Park for 51 years - just 2,976 - looked on as the Dons 3-1 win sent Cardiff to the bottom of the Division 2 table. Striker Stewart Evans plundered a two goal haul and Kevin Gage wrapped up the points with a solo effort mid way through the second half. "It was very satisfying to win away at last," manager Dave Bassett said. "We've played better on other occasions and come away with nothing so it was good to wrap up three points." - historicaldons.com

87% of Dons Bond survey respondents so far in favour & c.£1m ‘pledged’ from around 300 people, according to Senor Wiggins. Most would prefer a 2% rate. Give it a lash if you haven’t filled it in yet [Link]

Issue 31 of The Historical Don is not for the faint hearted. With pictures, stats and reaction from every game, and the memories of Ben Thatcher, Neal Ardley and Terry Burton, we reprise the disastrous Egil Olsen-inspired relegation season of 1999-2000 when the club's Premier League place was lost forever. On a happier note, we talk to John Leslie, remember the trip to the new Den in 2008 and reminisce about the first visit to Anfield. All that and much more. On sale at Saturday's game and those during the Christmas holidays.

With the 1960s inserts finally returning, it still costs just £2.
 In the EFL world Silk, because that is about the going rate for a L1 player who isn't still a youth. Who do you think you'll get to do a full time job that Lurker seems to envisage on a lower salary than the senior players.

 In what world would a L1 DOF cost £100k
15th Dec 2019 20:57:50 
[82.lo.gg.ed] 
Don't understand
 Lurker - budget for that? Do you take one off the coaching staff or find the best part of 100K from elsewhere? How many L1 and lower clubs have a DoF?

 OI that’s pointless. We need someone who knows what he is doing and can pull a whole picture together. Cheap maybe if possible but we need someone to pull together an entire football picture, youth, academy, reserves, first team, recruitment, development etc.

 stta - wouldn't that also fall into the undermining the manager issue? Does anyone know how many DoFs there are in the lower leagues?

 Not that long ago splinters said someone with a football background on the FCB was pointless and undemonstrated as successful elsewhere 😂😂

 I think any change along those lines, were it to be pursued, would have to be done at the same time as a change in first-team manager. Advertise it as a 'Director of football' and a 'Head coach' role. That way both people incoming would know their role.

 Possibly true Trebor, but I don't see how we can afford another full time salary. No guarantee it makes recruitment any better.

 "An ex player doing his badges" would surely make the first-team manager walk, claiming he was being undermined?

 Also, I agree on the pitch we are not setting the world a light by any means but we look comfortable in terms of staying up. Forss staying is a bonus but if we can get a target man in to play with Pigs he will start scoring again. I believe we will stay up.

Off the pitch I wouldn’t accept the current deal with investors as I think further options need to be explored which I believe now they are, but I am certainly not against outside investment if the deal is right. I think we need to negotiate harder and perhaps the publicity around the stadium may even encourage other investors to come forward. All in all not all doom and gloom from my perspective.
 What makes everyone believe we are losing half our team in January to be true?? Are these just rumours because of the stadium funding issues.
15th Dec 2019 19:56:01 
[92.lo.gg.ed] 
Also, rumour has it there were a couple of moron ‘fans’ in the Chelmflow end giving Pig a hard time on sat. You might get frustrated with him but how are donkey noises gonna help his confidence in a Wimbledon shirt?? Grow up!! Either back him or berate the opposition players.
 Lurker - I don't mind someone else provided they are cheap, maybe an ex-player doing his badges who'd a couple of days per month to improve their cv?

 OI I’m glad Hodges attends beards but I want someone whose full time job is to think about and input to the football structure of the club. I’d prefer the first team manager to focus primarily on his job and be consulted on the rest not running the overall picture of football side.
