    Thank you.

    As an AFC Wimbledon supporter, I feel very sorry for Luton and Luton fans. Such a shame that both clubs couldn’t go up because, really, we were both good enough.

    As you said, there were rows of empty seats in a less than half full stadium, but the atmosphere was still electric. It was also a great game of football.

    Great article – but you should refer to righting a wrong – not wronging a right :o)

    Given both clubs histories, it wasn’t a very bright idea to invite the Chair of the FA as guest of dishonour. He was roundly booed by both sets of fans before the game and quite rightly so.

    Wimblepool, good point there. Too bad for Luton..

    The wrong will never be “righted”. For a start we were in the second tier of football when we lost our club. How can it be righted when we are at level 4?

    The wrong will only be righted, ever.

    MK are still alive. We are at level 4.

    Even when MK die and we win the Champions League it will never be “righted”.

    I am an Oxford fan but saw one of Wimbledon’s very first games in the League, in 1977, away at Torquay. We knew from that one performance the club would do well. We must never forget it was for non-footballing reasons that your league place was taken away from you. We have played you before at the KassStad, but really looking forward to welcoming you there as a League team once more. Congratulations!

    great article. Come on you Dons!

    further, the high cost of attending this match surely put off all the casual fans and neutrals. My match and train tickets alone cost me £115. The entire cost of the day came to nearly £200. I had 5 mates who all stated they would attend, only to baulk at the cost. Hopefully the Conference will learn a lesson from this!

    Congrats to Wimbledon but as a Luton fan I’m still cursing the ref (possibly the only person in the stadium who didn’t think Brown’s challenge on Walker was a penalty) and the shape of Man City’s stupid goalposts. When those 2 incidents happened within a couple of minutes I knew it wasn’t going to be our day.

    So we’re stuck in the BSP for another season at least. Unless we petition the FA to let us take Franchise FC’s place in League 1, I’m sure we could put a compelling case to their 3 man commission!
