It’s one of those weeks. The defeat to Fleetwood was SO. GOD. DAMN. BAD. So bad we don’t want to talk about it – but we can do nothing but talk about. Sigh. Anyone yeah rubbish we’re going down. Accept it. We have. And this week we discuss why that is the case.

The visit of Barnsley this weekend got us thinking about the last time we hosted the Yorkshire side: April 2002, and the last game of the old Wimbledon FC. Protests ended a painful year, but as we left Selhurst Park that day, we did not know what the future held. We did not know that we would never again set foot inside that stadium to support Wimbledon’s Football Club. Well, we might do, but not as the home team.

So, it wasn’t meant to be like this, was it? How does our predictive, history-led analysis stack up against reality? And given our current predicament, is there any hope left for the season?

Co-incidence is a strange animal. It creeps up on you when you least expect it; but expect it you should because it’s really history (in the game). Think, really… first game in the New Year is Fleetwood and who’s still in the Cup? Yep, a nailed on certainty (why didn’t I hit the bookies then?)

Likewise , in our last analysis, it was just after we played Plymouth away so it is that this analysis follows Plymouth at home. So more than half the season gone, Neal Ardley’s gone, Neil Cox is gone and the club feels ripe for change and perhaps change is both a-coming and required. We’ll see.

And change on the pitch has very much been what we have needed. With first Simon B/Stephen Reid in charge, a touch of stability ensued and gradually things are appearing to get better. But how does this relate to our table of predictive results?

The win at Fleetwood was fun, wasn’t it? And there is definitely a feel-good factor around the place right now. Makes a change, huh? Whatever we’re doing differently, it seems to be working, and this week we are trying to determine what exactly has changed to suddenly make us scoring goals, winning games, and generally feeling better about ourselves.
