Match Of The Midweek: Eastbourne Borough 1-0 AFC Wimbledon

My God, but Priory Lane is a long way from the centre of Eastbourne. It takes a few seconds to sink in when you first check it out on Google Maps. It looks as if it’s in a different town. It’s a pity, really, because Eastbourne Borough is a friendly sort of  club. Perhaps they…

Match Of The Week: AFC Wimbledon 2-0 FC United of Manchester

As we walk into the bar at Kingsmeadow, something silver and shiny catches my attention in the corner of my eye. “It’s the FA Trophy!”, I squeal, “The real FA Trophy”. It takes a sharp prod to the rib cage to remind me that, sitting next to it, is the squatter but considerably shinier FA…

John Hartson

That retirement comes at such a young age is one of the curious contradictions of football. No sooner has a professional player reached his prime than he is sliding down the other side of his career arc.

Match Of The Week 1 – AFC Wimbledon 1-0 Basingstoke Town

The clouds are leaden grey, and the rain is slight yet relentless. Half of the nations train timetables are running a Sunday service, and the other half aren’t running at all. It can only be a British bank holiday weekend, and this weekend is kicking off with a match from the top of the Blue…

The Promotion Jitters

Burton Albion lost 2-1 at Ebbsfleet United in the Blue Square Premier on Wednesday night. There was, in itself, nothing extraordinary about this, but this defeat marks the third successive match that the once runaway leaders of the league have failed to win and, whilst they are still comfortably clear at the top of the…
