    Sat 7th Match Day 1

    About time it was started, Wimbledon at home, both teams have had a big overhaul in players and management. We are still short but have a behind closed doors game against Watford tomorrow so hopefully we might have some new signings in time for Saturday. Wimbledon have lost both their 2...

    Wellens named new Donny manager

    His assistant will be Noel Hunt, got a lot of work on his hands as we need to sign at least 12 players capable of keeping us in League 1 next season. The one thing Ritchie will get with us is time to build a team that plays the way he wants. He has stated that he wants to get us back playing the...

    9th Feb Match Thread

    Away to Fleetwood, on paper an easier game than the last 2 but we’ve never beaten Fleetwood away. The best we have managed is two 0-0 score lines. The big questions for us are, will Richards be fit (early indications are that he will be), Has Bogle recovered from his bout of Covid sufficiently...

    Hearing that Power is stating they are on the brink of bankruptcy and the sale of Jayiesimi will see them through to the end of the month?!

    Season Over?

    Apparently Leagues 1&2 Remaining games will be decided on points per game. Do you expect repercussions or is this the most sensible conclusion?

    Rovers v Cobblers

    an unexpected win away brings us home against a relegation rival, we haven’t won two games on the trot this season and haven’t drawn on Boxing Day since 1992. Obviously a Cobblers win then

    Wombles v Vikings

    Old boy Harry Forrester will probably make his debut for Wimbledon tomorrow and according to sod's law will probably score. I hope our players let him know what a twat he was when with us. Fergie will have a selection headache as Kongolo and May will be pressing for starts but Coppinger and...

    Vikings v Donkeys

    I fully expect Blackpool to park the bus and hit us on the break. They usually beat us so it's about time we beat them. We now have players who are prepared to shoot from distance so hopefully we can continue our good start to the season.

    Lancashire Rovers v Yorkshire Rovers

    The first of the battle of the Rovers ties, a little mini league between the 3 teams. From our part at Donny we will welcome back 5 of the players missing from midweek. Coppinger and Blair both rested, Wiiliams (hamstring) Mandeville (bruising) both recovered and Ben Khemis finally receiving...

    Col U v Donny

    will we have a promotion hangover against a side still in with a playoff chance? Got to win if we want the title. I will be in transit between a hotel and boat so will have sod all idea what the result is.

    The final one call cup final

    Last season of us being sponsored by One Call so this is the last cup final. On a slightly less note we can be promoted with a win and Mansfield could put themselves in the playoffs with a win. More importantly is wether Steve Evans wins the pukka pie bingo, oh and the ghost of the miners strike...

    Top of the Table v Expected Champions ( Donny v Cheltenham)

    The last time we played Cheltenham when going for promotion was the last game of the 2008 season, I remember being in the crowd expectant of the promotion party that would follow the game except we lost sending us to the play-offs. Rather than having an irrational dislike of Cheltenham for that...

    Cambridge v having a wobble Donny

    I would be more worried if we weren't creating chances but a trend of not putting them away seems to have sent in, plus we have gone back to conceding far too easily. Hopefully Baudry will be back and give us some stability. I can see another draw tonight but it's starting to feel like we need...

    The Airport Derby : Donny v Luton

    I fear our unbeaten home record may be under threat given our recent lacklustre performances. I t was around this time last season where the team capitulated from being just outside the play-offs to relegation so the doom-mongers amongst us will be out in force if we lose this one. Luton are...

    The Loco Works Derby - Donny v Crewe

    Given the form of both teams and especially ours at home this should be a nailed on home win but I can't get last seasons capitulation out of my head so taking nothing for granted. Mandeville is fit to return making the bench even stronger so no excuses if we don't get 3 points.

    Notts v Donny

    We've got Craig Alcock back after injury so our defence and bench should be stronger having said that we have lost 8 of our last 10 league meetings with County
