On This Day in 2000
Robbie Earle scores one of the goals as the Dons beat Newcastle United 2-0 at Selhurst Park to move above the Geordies in the League table. Two surveys of the Premiership were published in the week that followed. The first found that Wimbledon supporters were the least racist in the division. The other showed that the Dons were the team most likely to be harshly treated by match officials. Only 35% of decisions went in their favour compared to 87% for Manchester United!

Update
It’s certainly proven a colossal error to think that we can turn infection rates on and off like a tap - we relaxed far too much in November and then got caught unawares as cases surged with this new variant.

Given the unexpected capacity of this virus to mutate really quite significantly it may end up being a colossal error to have partially vaccinated millions, who serve as a breeding ground for the development of resistant mutations. Time will tell.

Spit, apart from buying fish and chips from Metcalfs at the bottom of Wimbledon broadway many years ago I have never had a meal delivered! Won't be changing a habit of a life time!

Enjoy your meal🤮
Oo er missus!
Doing only first doses now does make sense if there is an expectation that vaccine availability or injection capacity will increase (which is reasonable to expect), so you get the maximum marginal benefit (ie from the first dose) from each unit of vaccine while it is a scarce resource.

OI, I was supportive of it at first but I think they've taken it too far. I think a better balance is possible to get people fully vaccinated. Only 2k second jabs today compared to 400k first jabs. Maybe a 350-50k balance would be better. But anyway...

I wish Whitty would stop saying that delaying the second dose doubles the number of people who can get the vaccine. Only for a short while. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth from media and the general public when before the end of March vaccination of new people slows right down to do second doses. It is the right policy but sell it honestly!

RK - You were asking the other day about how the R number (which seems to be officially below 1 now, lagging behind non-official estimates). It's actually a poll of SPI-M members who say what they think it should be, not dissimilar to the Monetary Policy Committee on BoE interest rates.

Not quite 'the science' it's cracked up to be. A story in today's Times explains it.
For avid Covid watchers, first fall in hospital admissions since 2nd (3rd?) Wave, now at 38,676 down 452 from yesterday.

I love that OTD above Toon had Alan Shearer whilst we had Walid Badir, and we still won 2-0 😂 But it also reminded me of poor Gary Speed 😢 such a sad loss.

Re Frenford, I seem to recall it was at an athletics stadium with orange floodlights which made it quite eerie. The pitch was so bad that Terry Eames refused to send a first team there when we played Ilford there the next season and the stiffs lost 6-2

Woodyard has been a massive let down. A bit the Reilly who both on paper should be doing a lot more.

Nice to have met most of you.
Lurk - thanks for your clarification.... I’d still maintain they could probably have detained/fined more than 5 of the 400.... the odds of getting fined if attending a big event seem pretty slim (395 from 400 who attended didn’t get a fine), which doesn’t make the deterrent particularly effective - I guess that’s really my point. Anyway, it’s only a minor distraction from the much bigger issues going on....

For any Jam fans out there, I had this commissioned for my new place ;-) I don't really use Instagram other than for following the ploughlane photos, but thought some might like to see this!

Didn’t say you were attacking me lurker but never mind.....we move on. One thing I don’t understand is the underperforming Woodyard who on paper seemed a really good signing - ex captain of Peterborough and hailed as one of the new signings who helped to kick start tranmere’s revival last season before covid struck. Still hope we get to see the best of him and that as a more experienced members of the squad (at 27 😂) he can help us out of this

bluewomble I was far more impressed by Portsmouth than by Sunderland. (And let's be honest Portsmouth weren't outstanding and none of us likes to be impressed by them).

spit my problem is having watched those 14 games I still can't tell if that was because we are that good or we got away with stuff or purple patch. I suspect, considering the mistakes that cos us points then are the ones getting us battered now, that it was probably a combination of things gelling in attack and getting some luck (fucking novelty for us in the 10 years in the league - we're probably owed a full season of it).

Hull and Pompey have both looked decent. Sunderland were bang average and we kind of handed the game to them. Didnt they lose to Plymouth afterwards? To be honest I'm losing interest in the league now so no idea on results. Just looking out for our weary wombles

Being 11th in the table after 14 games suggests to me we have enough in the squad to get out of this.a bad run yes,but we can get out of it for sure.24 games to go .

dondog take a breath, calm down, don't assume someone attacked you because they didn't agree with everything you said. I said it "isn't really a good performance" not it was bad. There's a difference. There's a world between extremes. Hull are at 22% (5/22 games), we were at 36% (5/14) so we're not on the same level. If Hull's performance is the bar for good then ours was decent. i.e. we were in mid table for a reason. That's not attacking you it's saying decent is a better description maybe than good.
22nd Jan 2021 12:49:51 
[81.lo.gg.ed] 
Portsmouth and Lincoln are both around 20% as well so that does seem to be the bar for good in this division. So we did perform to mid table standard.
Did I just watch a different video to everyone else in the GB? Came out of it feeling informed, and glad the stadium becomes ours fully in less than a week.
