WOMBLES DOWNUNDER #209

JUST in time for Christmas… WDSA’s acclaimed Wombles Downunder newsletter #209 is now available, written by Wimbledon supporters for Wimbledon supporters and about to enter its 30th consecutive year.

Match Day

ALLOWED TO DREAM, AREN’T WE?

AFC Wimbledon will go into the hat and the last 64 for the first time after an unexpected accomplished victory over League 2 leaders Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park on Sunday to give the Dons’ season a shot in the arm of badly-needed adrenaline with a win that could yet have far-reaching repercussions….. we’re at least allowed to dream at least until Monday night’s Cup draw; we haven’t had that luxury before.

Match Day

POINTLESS EXERCISE, NO MORE

IT only took nine games to prise a point out of nemesis Oxford United as Wimbledon put an end to a deflating sequence of eight losses to the Us going back to the Conference days in a scoreless draw at Kassam Stadium.

Match Day

DOUBLE MATT FINISH

MATT TUBBS justified his gaffer’s faith with a drought-busting brace to sweep Wimbledon past York City and into the second round of the FA Cup at Kingsmeadow on Tuesday.

Analysis

NOT PRETTY, UGLY, BUT REQUIRED

“THAT was awful”, said the guy at the station,”but at least we got the three points”. Which was true, but a tad unfair, as the playing surface had a big influence on this game, writes The Wizard of Oz.

Match Day

FULLER MULLERS DAGGERS

BIGFOOT, the Loch Ness Monster, the Abominable Snowman … now throw in an extremely rare goal by Barry Fuller as Wimbledon performed another rare sighting, a win at home against a lower-placed team !

Match Day

ONLY A LICK OF PAINT

Cup defeats are never celebrated but Neal Ardley has taken some succour from Wimbledon getting brushed from the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy to the top-ranked team left in the draw.

Match Day

SHEA KEEPS MINSTERMEN AT BAY

JAMES SHEA kept Wimbledon in the FA Cup with what was described as a “world class double save” to deny York City a late winner and take the Minstermen back to Kingsmeadow for a replay after a 1-1 draw at Bootham Crescent.

Match Day

COBBLERS NOBBLE WOMBLES (AGAIN)

IT SEEMS we’ve reached the crossroads already. Sixteen games in, just over a third of the season gone and Neal Ardley is emptying out on his players after a none too clever 0-2 loss at an all too familiar nemesis Northampton Town. What a load of old cobblers.

Match Day

ROVERS RETURN FOR POINT

AS if by premonition Wimbledon played their part in ending Tranmere Rovers’ 535-minute goal drought as the Merseysiders climbed off the bottom of League Two with a fighting 2-2 draw at Kingsmeadow on Saturday.
