    As a Wimbledon supporter of old and new clubs for many years, I feel I must apologise for the behaviour of these so called ‘fans’ and is not the attitude of most of us. We appreciate a good game, and of the support given by most league and non league clubs and their Fans.The sympathy for our plight in them dark days for a club not generally liked, was extraordinary.
    Our Club has a genuinely unique and proud history and the attitude of these misguided ‘supporters’ does not help the cause of AFC’s, or football in general. I mostly found on the way home from matches, that talking to opposing fans is usually intelligent and witty, and good natured ribbing and an appreciation of the good points of the opposing team can make a difference to one’s enjoyment of a game.
    I do hope for the clubs sake that AFC do take their rightful in the senior league, but I know I will miss the much better atmosphere of non league, as I did when the original club went into the league. It was never quite the same after that, for all their success.

    Thanks for the match report.

    Sadly all successful football clubs attract their own morons.

    aye, that bit near the station dies a little more each year, Havant town centre gradually shifting west with the building of aTesco and a retail park.

    My view, as a H&W supporter, was that it was a great point, but we aren’t showing much to suggest this run in is going to be easy. More of this at http://dubsteps.blogspot.com/2009/03/havant-waterlooville-0-afc-wimbledon-0.html

    Also, I should point out that most of the work on the ground was done well before the Cup run. Our cup monies put a cover on the far side and have paid for a new corporate/directors box, but the main stand, terraces and covering mostly happened about 7 years ago. Prior to that, it was all a bit Wessex League to be fair.

    Most of our cup monies have gone on paying off debts I believe.

    No doubt that it’s been a disappointing season though and I can certainly say that I’m looking nervily at the last relegation spot. Fingers crossed anyway.
