Complete condescending and pathetic. Maybe the club needs one of these from the fans : How not to be so totally inadequate.
They are only trying to aviod long queues and stress.


Maybe they could open all of the available turnstiles, just a thought.

My guess would be that opening more turnstiles will require more staff to look after the turnstiles and more stewards to cover the areas, which means more expense for the club.

People turning up to the ground a little earlier (where they can) costs the club nothing.

Not really because the turnstiles work themselves you don’t need anyone ‘on’ them. There’s stewards standing around outside doing nothing so it wouldn’t be too much effort to open them all up. It’s a bit like the self service tills in Asda. They only have one member of staff on to cover 12 tills, if you have to wait a minute because you’ve got a problem then so be it.

I am sure they would if it was possible. They probably havn't sufficient staff.

Spot on. Some fans are reluctant to alter their pre match habits, then blame the club if they are late for the kick off.

Yes it is. And if they hadn't been given the info, the usual suspects would more than likely say why didn't they tell us.

Back on track Wimbledon like Barrow, Harrigate, Sutton will fight tooth and nail and scrap for every ball,
Sorry but Mansfield are a scalp to take, they will not be here to entertain, i will take a hard fought draw with so much quality missing grom or team.
Hawkins, Akins, Boateng and players carrying knocks.

The weather forecast is pretty bad for this evening, I hope the pitch is ok. Probably not the conditions Mez would like this early in the season

Watched the extended highlights of the AFC Wimbledon games. Ayoub Assal (No 10) is a tricky little player. 12 goals in 51(8) league starts. He got an assist on Saturday. Josh Davison is also a decent player up front. He looked good at times on loan from Charlton at FGR and Swindon.

I wonder if Nigel Clough will play Anthony Hartigan against his old team. Rhys Oates did not have his best games against Hartlepool. I'd start George Maris if he is fit.

Bowery Oates

No they probably forgot to install the new ticket readers on the unused turnstiles.

The video isn't helping. The problem wasn't in any way caused by the fans, either too many or turning up late. It as caused by one turnstile being shut and the other one not working very well. Just mend the turnstiles and stop blaming the fans.

I don’t think any of them did to be honest. ;)

Wonder if 6’9 striker Kyle Hudlin gets a start for these today. Don’t think he’s particularly good but he’d give our centre backs and their lack of aerial ability without Hawkins some trouble I think.

We beat Hartlepool 3-2 and drew 2-2 away Dan. I was referring to Rhys Oates playing against his former team where it seemed to get to him.

Is there a reason that tickets for the game have gone offline? Surely a few latecomers being prevented from coming?
