    A couple of inaccuracies here. Firstly, the Jones comments about Dalglish were quoted in a paper in the run up to the 1988 FA Cup final. I’ve never heard the part about anyone chanting ‘in the hole’ at him tbh…

    Referring to the ‘Crazy Gang’ and then referring to an incident involving John Hartson is stretching things a little. The Crazy Gang reference is generally representative of the period during the late eighties when the club was at Plough Lane – the Jones, Fashanu, Downes, Wise era under Dave Bassett – rather than from 1999 onwards when Hartson signed for the club.

    Not sure about the labelling of Jones as a ‘failed Welsh international’ either. Is that as opposed to all the World Cup winning welsh internationals?

    Otherwise, and interesting take on the Everton 3, Wimbledon 2 crunch match. As a Dons fan present that day, it was one match I was rather relieved to have lost as Everton fans were clearly in no mood to have taken defeat graciously.
