Arriving late, but sounding great. This week, we reviewed the 2-2 draw with Ipswich, and whether Joe Pigott should be chastised for semi-celebrating his goal against us, or if our fans should have been more polite towards him. We also preview the Oxford game, discuss the situation with season tickets, Dons Trust Board elections, Chaucer, Alanis Morisette, Watford – grrrr – and Nick goes on a couple of rants – chiefly about things being better in the old days.

We’ve all heard the adage that ‘past performance is no guarantee of future performance’. However, over time, trends do emerge which allow one a greater degree of confidence in looking towards the future.

Of course, you cannot mitigate for unexpected, unnatural events like this recent pandemic which curtailed last season. But – as we reach the crunch part of the season (roughly five games to go, I’d always said, based on a casual observation over the years) – teams currently in the bottom four of League One will not, generally, achieve more than a point per game on average during the final run in.

Is that true?
