AFC Wimbledon V Swindon Town Review

AFC Wimbledon V Swindon Town Review

From a personal stand point, a great away day despite the ground being a dump and the view being absolutely shocking at Kingsmeadow.

The away terrace is small and shallow. We had a great view of the back of peoples head in front of us. We should have stayed in the strip club prior where Town fans congregated before kick off.

The game was a scrappy affair and Wimbledon more than showed they have what it takes to remain in the Football League.

Simon Ferry was top dog for Town again whilst Matt Ritchie probably needs to start the next game on the bench, too many times Ritchie becomes greedy and doesn't pass the ball.

Oliver Risser appears to get into games purely on the basis he may score a cracking goal, well Paolo drop him and bring in Jonathan Smith next match, When Smith eventually came on the tempo picked up a bit.

The linesman who appeared to be blind made sure that every Town attack was thwarted by raising the off-side flag as frequent as possible. You could forgive the lines-man if he was in the stands, as Town fans could see nothing!!!

Oh we won't moan about the stonewall penalty that never was to Paul Caddis, PDC's comments about diving to get a penalty going forward appear to have bitten us in the backside.

Meh, a point away from home, loads of beer, decent pub and a good crowd not a bad day out, just a shame you only got a great view of the back of the heads in front of you.
