In 1957, Delmer Daves directed a film called 3:10 to Yuma. It was, for all intents and purposes, a fantastic film with grit, thrilling sequences and it helped push the boundaries of what cinema goers could expect in a western film.

In 2007 the film was remade by James Mangold and, taking cinema goers expectations to one side, it was a perfectly exciting remake. It contained a bit more gore, thrills and spills, and fluidity.

It’s a bit of a rant amongst some calmer discussion about tactics, tables, and the Dons Trust.

A pair of home defeats to mull over this week, but we are far from downhearted. Performances are better than results at the current time, so there’s many reasons to be positive; there’s also things we do need to be mindful of, and areas in which we can improve, so we will discuss those of course. However, refereeing decisions haven’t helped, and it is here that we kick-off our review of the week at AFC Wimbledon.

Having seen him occupy a place on the bench on Tuesday night, fans were bound to ask questions about Deji Oshilaja. Was he really so unwell on the weekend that he couldn’t play three days later, or was he kept out of the side to ensure a move away from the club was not jeopardised? It’s a big issue, but there are many to come from the Walsall game, and there’s lots to talk about, so grab a cuppa (bag first!) and get comfortable …
