Some might claim our players reaction to beating the second bottom club of League Two at home 1-0 was tinpot, with Doug Tharme looking like he wanted to crowd surf into the Pontoon, but after losing 5-1 against Doncaster I think they can be excused...

Good, what a dickhead thing to do by the Wimbledon player

Will never understand the hate for MK fans, it wasn’t them who stole the club. A lot of the fans that go away weren’t even born or were very young. Lower league fans love to bang on about “support your local club” but when MK fans do it’s an issue

Not very often I agree with you Don but you are spot on with this.
The MK fans have done nothing wrong and the prick booting balls at them should be banned the absolute numpty.

If true (I've not seen any footage) I wonder if he was aged specific as to who he aimed at, or was it just random: man, woman and child.

Which dickhead is accused of this?

Yeah the fault is with the FA for allowing it in the first place. I spent my early years living in Buckinghamshire and professional football wise there wasn't anything going on (this was prior to Wycombes promotion from non league) Milton Keynes is a big place and can clearly sustain a professional club. I get the hate from Dons fans of a certain age, but MK fans are largely blameless in it all at this point imo. Admittedly they should have had to start at the bottom of the pyramid but we are where we are now.

Lee Hughes got a slap on the wrist for pelting 'shots' at Lincoln fans a few years back during a warm-up at Meadow Lane.

I agree that the FA should not have allowed it, but MK customers are not blameless as they seem just fine buying a place higher up in the pyramid rather than earning it. They had a non-league team but it died when winkleman farted the franchise in to existence.
It's very possible to grow a non-league team in to league team - Wrexham and Wimbledon have both done it twice, and so have many other teams. If MK had done that rather than buying the league place of a struggling club with some very dodgy owners, they would be respected rather than hated.

its in the background of the video. It is Harry Pell accused. he is stood near the goal

Thanks iesty, doesn't look tinpot at all looks valid.

On that one hit is blatant and if hedid indeed do it lots of times for a laff then he's clearly a 'dickhead' as others suggest.

I suspect, like Lee Hughes, he's not the smartest lad and a bit of dick it is certainly not uncommon in the world of football.

Wrexham were never a traditional 'non-league club'.

If a fan had been kicking stuff at a player he would be banned for life and probably receive a football banning order preventing him from attending any other ground.

I never understand why it is not applied to players when they do stuff like this.

Disclaimer.

I can't tell if it was Pell or not and I can't see how long it went in for.

Probably for the same reason that if a player, manager or staff member verbally abuses a supporter they get in big trouble whereas those in the stands and on the terraces can basically say almost anything throw in some questionable hand gestures and shuffle off home with no consequences.

Not surprised he's been charged with misconduct for kicking footballers at supporters young and old, but very surprised he's not been charged with being a daft lad dicked.

What a bell end.

Wrexham only allowing 1,190 or so away fans then not serving beer to away fans on top has to go in here.

I’m more surprised he managed to stay on his feet

That's the usual allowance that every proper team gets.

As for the beer, I've never understood people who queue up long before HT and get back to their seats late in the second half just to quickly down a warm bottle of Carling.

Given your capacity has increased you should have to increase the away following.

Regarding the alcohol it’s peoples choice whether they do or don’t do that, it’s just a bizarre decision to not provide the option, i assume home fans can’t buy alcohol at half time too?
