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.
We look back on that day and a little bit of that season this week, but begin with the departure of Ben Purrington’s hair (01:30) and some thoughts on recruitment (08:15). We then review the draw at Coventry (11:15) before our Barnsley chat (26:09) which leads into Wally with a Trolley (53:45) and then our prediction for this weekend’s game (01:01:40).
