HERE’S one for you to ponder: Wimbledon’s resilient point at leaders Scunthorpe United means they have taken 10 points off the current top three teams in four games this season and just one point off the bottom three sides from the same number of games … now that’s consistent inconsistency.
Wombles Downunder has been chronicling Wimbledon FC since 1985 and has forged a reputation as a quality original fanzine.
In the latest issue, we look at the long-awaited decision of whether the Dons will get the Merton Council go-ahead to build their new stadium in Wimbledon’s Plough Lane precinct.
Ian Hidden has an on-the-spot report on the Government Inspector’s meeting looking at the Council's proposals for each site.
There is also a piece from Marc Jones on the supporters’ Bring The Dons Home initiative and there's a debate over the merits of Neal Ardley, while Bush Womble takes a detailed look at Ardley’s 3-5-2 playing formation and gives his views.
