I completely dispise this lot, In a different way to boro, they are plastic in every way and nothing would give me more pleasure than to see us help them to relegation safe in the knowledge that AFC stay up.

Hope they sell out there allocation and all go home stunned when Berto (number 28 plastic fans) comes off the bench and gets a hat trick in a 5-0 win.

Iím sure supporters everywhere treat this vile organisation (I refuse to call them a football club) with the same contempt. Itís not the fault of the people that follow them, although I genuinely would find it impossible to support this outfit if I was a local. The blame for this lays squarely with the football league for endorsing this outrage in the first place l. I think itís the role of every true football fan to never accept this outfit as a club. I personally yearned for the day when Wimbledon got back in the football league. Wimbledon beating them in the league which happened at the back end of last season must have been a day to savour. Not sure how I would have felt if I was an AFC supporter that day. All thatís needed now is for MK to get relegated out of the league and along with AFCs new ground which apparently is a quarter of a mile from the old ground, some of this wrong will have been put right. Someone ran a thread on here sometime ago about who you would support if there was no Cobblers. AFC Wimbledon are my other team, I think their story of overcoming adversity is one of the best in english football. As for MK, say no more, hope we give them a damn good thrashing. Sorry about yet another self righteous rant Wrigley, but these chaps have got my gander up.

Rant away, my friend! I've had a few myself on the very same topic....

No problem with that last one as far as I'm concerned.

It'll be very interesting to see how we line up for this - after such a great team performance at Bradford common sense would say same again but having turnbull at left back for a home game might be a bit negative. If we bring bunney in I guess he will slot in as a much more attacking lb but then which of Poole or turnbull gives way - it wouldn't be particularly fair on either of them. Then there's Hoskins/foley in the wide attacking positions ahead of pereira - neither of them deserves to lose their place but berto's match fitness isn't going to improve with 5 minutes here and there. It's nice to have options all of a sudden after having none not long ago.

I would love to see a 7,000 plus crowd but I just can't see it. MK will perhaps get close to selling out the South (950) and we should have more on the home gate than the last few matches, now that word is out there that we are improving and the local element to the game so maybe an additional 500 or so. Probably looking at around 6,250 at best. If only the club could do some marketing and advertising for the game.

Thought? Yes you're right, I'm sure there's lots of flids in Oxford and many cripples in Coventry.

If they were to heavily sell this fixture through local media etc, a thousand plus extra would turn up and cause regulars to miss out, also you would get lots of younger fans turning up not paying full price so lowering the gate receipts.
How can we avoid this situation in the future?😂😂😂

No they wouldnt. Last two times there was a campaign was the claret days in the play off year and the promotion year and about 700 extra came. No way 1000+ are going to turn up to a relegation battle

Was all ticket for them.....but now it isn't! That gives an indication of how their advance sales were going. Pay on the day available if there are tickets left.

Oh good, redevelopment chat now leaking into this thread too. If we could just have a detailed discussion on whether this is an easier game or not this would probably be the perfect thread.

Good to hear you can still get it up!
donít know who told you that but youíve been sadly misinformed. That ship sailed many years ago, but might return to these shores if the Wimbledon Travellers Association go out of the league.

local derby and a relegation 6 pointer with the introduction of 5 new potentially exciting signings on the back of 2 straight wins.... oxford mk Peterborough luton swindon etc etc would all have 10,000 plus in similar situations   as would we if we could.

Stadium:MK was in League 2 in 07/08 Brian.

It was the best thing ever too.....

Wasn't that the season they got promoted?

Either way the novelty factor of the nice ground and a team on the up is what got the ball rolling with their attendance increases.
A nice but nearly empty soulless stadium and a team on a serious downward trend - hopefully in league 2 - means a lot of their fans will go back to being armchair Prem fans.

Perhaps supporters expectations have suddenly gone from abject despair into overdrive optimism .....having said that , if there are 2 teams I would love to give an absolute tonking to ...& the Plastic Dons are top of my list .COYC.......keep this going.......our magic undefeated run followed by a horrendous run where we were doomed as soon as we let a goal in ....now the pendulum is swinging again Huh?

PS don't like the term" Mongs " being used ! That should be removed by the moderators .

They didn't sell out last season so why would they get close now?

When things are going badly for a plastic team they will lose fans quicker than an 'established' club. All the fans that started going with their promotions from league 2 and league 1 will stop going much quicker than a seasoned fan when it's not going well.

Stadium MK in league 2 would be the best thing ever. Combine that with Us and the Real Dons surviving with Luton getting promoted, they would have nothing to look forward to next season.

The sooner they fold the better, and if they really think proper football fans have less animosity towards them over the years they are deluded. #Scumoffootball #plastic #franchise Great post, bri. That is exactly how I feel. I look forward to the day they become a non league club.
