    Weird lineup. It seems to be almost exclusively midfielders.

    Marsha has been RB since his loan at Orient, presumably because somebody at the club noticed our academy produced nothing but ball-retaining CMs

    Which could explain why both Harvey White and Dilan Markanday have played LB for our U23s in the last year or so...

    That’s rough luck, been a real **** 12 or so months for him.

    He should drop the Walcott part of his name, as they seemed to plague his namesake, too.

    Nice work by Skipp, as usual. Was involved in both of their goals against Forest last night:


    Lovely 2nd goal.
    Skipp always seems to have his head up and looks to move the ball forward, which is very positive for his role.

    I count three players who are thankful they didn't travel last night...

    Good news: our social media team won't have the usual dullards with Bruno Fernandes avatars popping by...

    That poor defender. PTSD flashbacks for years.

    Like Devine, he’s had a solid impact since joining us in the summer. Getting a senior call up at his age is very impressive, even if Estonia aren’t exactly a footballing giant.

    Strong line up with John, Devine, Mathurin and Scarlett all starting.

    We’re on the Wimbledon YouTube channel for anyone interested, here’s the link to the channel, you can then easily find the match:

    The cameraman is definitely an amateur in this, keeps delaying moving the camera in the direction of the game <laugh>

    Mathurin’s crossing has been really poor this half, think he’s had about 5 and all have either been miss hit or not cleared the first man.

    I think it's automated. Very strange movement if that's an actual person.

    Plough Lane may have a capacity of a little over 9k, but it has a screen in the corner. Technologically ahead of Old Trafford and Anfield! <laugh>

    Let off, Wimbledon score after a shot was parried but linesman flagged for offside. We’ve gotta liven up a bit.

    Extra time, we’ve done nowhere near enough and Wimbledon have treated this like a proper cup tie as they’ve been well up for it against higher level opposition. You wouldn’t think on this showing it’s a tier one vs tier three academy match.
