We have selection dilemmas on the horizon. How does a team, unbeaten in seven (or eight depending on your view of B-Team Trophies and/or penalty shoot-out losses), re-integrate a striker with a knack of scoring goals without disrupting form and momentum? Or is it quite easy as the unbeaten run actually masks some rather dire performances? Nick and Stu discuss that, as well as whether Ayoub Assal is a million-pound player or not.

After a fortnight away, we’re back once again with the ill behaviour. The team is too: once, against Weymouth, in a bad way, and once, against Leyton Orient, in a good way. The old Crazy Gang was back for a famous, memorable night at Plough Lane. What did we make of it all? Plus we talk London derbies, Curzon Ashton, FA Cup, Salford, kits, and old grounds. A classic edition of the podcast, if we do say so ourselves. Which we do.

Nick and Stu take on dodgy internet to provide you all with talk of a WIN. Yes, you read that correctly: A WIN. But there are questions to answer about how the squad is shaping up, especially in regard to one player’s best role. Injuries, a new Managing Director, and Dons Trust resolutions are also discussed, and there’s also a rant about cars.

Michael Rootes is one of a select group of players to have been on the books on both Wimbledon FC and AFC Wimbledon. He joins Nick and Stu to discuss his time at both, with stories of Chris Perry, Neal Ardley, John Fashanu, and Stanley Reed. We also revisit his one and only AFCW appearance in 2003: a most memorable debut that featured on the very first 9yrspodcast. Michael also gives his thoughts on the current squad’s season so far, and we discuss the draw at Bradford.

It’s the Brexit question. You know what we mean – we don’t even have to say it. So, what does the future hold for AFC Wimbledon? Do we have a plan? Do we need to lose control to turn the ship around? Is the new Managing Director the solution to all our problems? Nick and Stu shoot the breeze, as well as talk a little bit about the football. The blogs we referenced are linked to below!

Nick and Stu discuss the dispiriting defeat to Northampton, and the concerns that it has raised – on and off the pitch. We’re not trying to catastrophize, but there are issues and they need sorting. There’s also a cracker of a question for Jackson Five, to lighten the mood, and we look ahead to the trip to Carlisle…

Somewhat tardy – we do apologise – but we have this week’s podcast for you just in time to preview our visit to Stockport. Nick and Stu discuss the signing of Ryley Towler on loan from Bristol City, and what he brings to the side, before looking at our limitations as our squad, as evidenced in the defeat to Barrow. We also have our regular features, including a favourable (for Stu) edition of Jackson Five.
