If somehow Parkinson keeps his job next season, the club need to bring in an attacking coach to help him because Parkinson doesn't have a clue how to set a team up to actually attack.
We're second in the league.
We have the second highest goal difference.

Just saying, thats all.......

Re: Ken Anderson - New Owner (Definitely. For Now ..... )

The delinquency in submitting financial reports is, of course, reprehensible and should be explained . I think it was quite simple to be honest. Accounts can be prepared in 2 different ways: as a going concern, or not (ie breakup basis). No company in their rightmind wants to present accounts on a ...

He's stayed fit. Cant believe he is playing saturday/tuesday, was even playing in that daft trophy thing earlier this season! Whoever has worked with him on his injuries has done a great job.

Re: The other Dons.....Oxford away Tues 21-03-17...7.45

His contract runs out at the end of June - and I pray to God that they dont renew it - because he was a joke in the Championship - and we will really struggle again if we have to rely on him as our centre forward I still think people are being harsh on Madine, but each to their own opinions and all...

Re: The other Dons.....Oxford away Tues 21-03-17...7.45

2-0 to us. Its a dead-cert - you can bet your car keys or house on it.

Spearing and Alfie to score (1 free kick from Morais and one header from a Morais cross).

Its written in the stars....

Re: Red Rose, what a load of cobblers. Northampton, Home 3-0'clock Sat 18th March.

I don't understand the pessimism. On another day, we could have scored five - the two goals, Wheater's tame effort, ALF's one-on-one and the moment when their keeper had a 'mare. They had two attempts, scored from one, and had the other ruled out for offside. If every clear-cut chance is a goal, th...

I'll offer a swap with the miserable old farts behind us, who clearly take advantage of cheap family tickets whilst having no one under the age of 50 in sight, who moan and swear all through the game, irrespective of what is happening. Against Wimbledon one of them spent the first 30 mins complainin...

Re: Vela's Behaviour

A few points however: 1. If the players want a few beers why not go to Manchester or somewhere outside of Bolton where they may not be recognised 2. We are in the middle of something of a slump (2 wins in the last 12 games), with automatic promotion seemingly slipping away with a very important gam...

Re: Bruno N'Gotty - your memories

Give over. As brilliant as Bruno was, he was no Gudni. Bergsson was immense - seemed fitter than virtually everyone he played against, despite him being about 47 towards the end of his time with us. Absolutely unflappable (until someone produces evidence to the contrary) and a decent goal return too...

Re: Hard to get a Haydon over this one. AFC Wimbledon (H) - 04/03/17 3pm

We'll start with a win. Go 1-0 up early on (Vela again) and then play out a nervy remainder of the game before nicking another near the end when they are pushing for the equaliser (ALF). Trust me, its a dead cert. What could possibly go wrong.....

Feck me another one - we had a spell earlier in the season when we where solid and knew how to defend, but currently the team can't defend for toffee, also football is about attacking & defending you don't win games if you can't attack effectively and create chances and score goals and also we have...
