2-1 to Wimbledon with twenty minutes or so to go ... and a proper old-style Wimbledon route one goal to boot, according to BBC London

As I wrote on the other thread that I thought was this thread

"Sitting here at home in NJ...and what do I see coming up in 10 minutes on Fox Soccer Channel...

..but AFC Wimbledon vs York City.

So go Wombles.
"

Not a true Rt 1, but a header behind the defense that Strutton ran onto leaving the announcer screaming "He has put the STRUT in Strutton !"

Pretty good level all around. York City was slightly better, and you would've been confused when you heard that they were a man down and not Wimbledon, but the back four played well and Strutton was incredibly dangerous.

He nearly had a hattrick when a York City defender was on his arm and he said "SIDDOWN CLOWN" and pushed his ass to the turf. Couldn't finish it however.

Nice stadium, much better than it looks on the net. Looks good on tv as well.

Now THAT was a Rt 1 goal. GK free kick, Carlisle header to Reed's finish.

2-2 in the 89th.

3-2 to Wimbledon now, with a bit of a lucky bounce-in according to the radio ...

Harrison scores a flying backheel...from 20 yards out.

Wonder goal that he can't even believe...he just checked on Carlisle on the ground, leading me to think he fouled him.

At the kickoff it looked like he mouthed "Oh my."

3-2 Wimbledon

Not a goalmouth bounce-in at all...you'll really have to see it to believe it.

Wimbledon's counter is now burning York up, crosses finding heads, headers finding feet, feet finding net...Midson scores a one-touch a minute later.

4-2 Dons.

4-2. Wimbledon running riot in the first period. We need some divine intervention from the Minstermen now (or an absolute miracle tomorrow).

Wimbledon win 4-3 ... all eyes on MK Dons v Cambridge City tomorrow now, I guess.

I had fun. I'll also have everyone know that when I pay attention to a Wimbledon match, they're now 2-0.

Ah fuck - so with apologies to Ton Ton and other AFCW fans on this board, the nightmare is nearly upon us. Hopefully Cambridge City will do what is truly right and win, but somehow I doubt it.

So let the history whitewash commence, the griining, gurning piece of shite called winkleman with his glib use of "historic", "brilliant". "what the fans wanted", and ITV/ESPN put a total front on the scanario and not let the real truth of how Franchise came to be put in front of a live TV audience. Will there be a spokesman from the FA answering real questions about the real issues be there? Will there fuck. It'll be a total and utter lovefest - which ex-Womble will they wheel out to legitimise it all - Sanchez, Fashanu?

It makes me fucking sick this Franchise shit, may they rot and burn forever scum.

No Cassidy and no Palmer for tonight as part of the deal that brought them to Rovers on loan from Wolves and Sheff Wed respectively. Cassidy’s impact has been prominent and Palmer’s presence has coincided with Rovers’ dream start, given that he has developed a crucial understanding with Wallace.

I’d be inclined to rest Wallace for Friday’s game against Franchise and give the splendidly named Max Power a crack along with Danny Harrison in the middle of the park, but Ronnie won’t want to lose in front of the cameras, though I feel Rovers just might.

Hell it’s only on ITV4 and it’s on in the Sweeney/Minder slot. By rights Dennis Waterman should make a special appearance and sing the theme choon…

It's small consolation, but Radio 5 did at least acknowledge last night that it's a game that Wimbledon fans certainly do not want.

ESPN certainly didn't, at one point the commentator said it was a "delicious" prospect for Wimbledon.

Fox Soccer Channel aired a somewhat inspirational documentary about how the fans started the club before the game and the announcer said Wimbledon fans don't recognize Franchise and consistently said how they were not looking forward to it. The pregame announcer, however, was making it out as a 'tantalizing derby.'

The fact that ESPN included Wimbledon folk in the broadcast team but no York representation, and the general press-box frenzy over it I think show precisely where the media stand here - they're desperate for the nightmare tie.

As for the game? Meh, bit of a disappointment. With the chances City had, Wimbledon should have been dead and buried by half-time, and even a man short we still managed to be on top for decent periods. No complaints though - if you miss so many easy chances you don't deserve to win. Best of luck to Wimbledon in the next round, let's hope it's against Cambridge.

Best way to convey a message of disgust at the prospect of playing Franchise is to boycott the game...The players will understand no doubt.
