Woeful Wimbledon After a promising start and sitting 2nd in the league, despite a predicted 19th placed finish, you could forgive us for being ex- cited with the way Wimbledon had kicked off the campaign. Now it seems a world away as the honeymoon period for Half- Back seems to have crushing down as Wimbledon appear to be in free fall back towards the wrong end of the stadium. The start of a bad 3 months for the club was a 2-2 draw with Black- pool, despite leading twice and eventually conceding an equaliser in the 95th minute. This was followed up with a 2-1 defeat to Ports- mouth, 0-0 draw with Gillingham and a late fight back weren’t enough to rescue a point as they fell to a 3-2 loss to Blackburn Rovers. The one shining light in this dismal 3 months was the first meeting of Wimbledon and MK Dons. With the first fixture being played at King- smeadow the club was electric in the build up to the game. Anxiety was in the air as Wimbledon had gone 4 games without a win and a defeat to MK Dons would be a dagger to the heart for Wimbledon Fans. The atmosphere turned sour as MK Dons took the lead just be- fore half time. A capacity crowd got what they wanted as Lyle Taylor equalised and George Francomb sent the fans delir- ious as he fired the Wombles ahead and secured the win.Page 2

Woeful WimbledonHalf-Backs men followed up the great win with a 1-0 win away at Sou-thend. Was the early season Wimbledon back? Unfortunately not.Wimbledon slumped into their worst run of form which hasseen them slip all the way from 2nd to 20th. 9 league gameswith out a win is a record they will want to forget in a hurry.There was a toxic atmosphere around the club with no end insite and Half-Back should be concerned about his job security.The rot was stopped with a 1-0 win at home againstPeterborough, courtesy of a Lyle Taylor penalty.With Wimbledon now sat in 19th on par with the pre-season predic-tion, Half-Back has a job on his hands if he wants to keep his job and progress the club.

(C)update Carabao cupThe league cup was a chance for the Wombles to pit themselves against some of the bigger clubs in the Football League. An early exit was confirmed as they fell to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of London rivals, QPR. It what was a closely contested affair, Half-Back could draw some positives from it. Checkatrade Originally Half-Back wanted to see how far he could takeWimbledon in the competition with the prospect of Wembley atthe end. Unfortunately due to the poor form, focus switched to theleague and the performances in the Checkatrade trophy sufferedPage 4 and saw the Dons eliminated.

(c)update FA CUPThe FA Cup. A competition which Wimbledon fans have a magical drawto thanks to the crazy gang. It was probably a cup out of reach of Wim-bledon but a good run and the opportunity to rub shoulders with the big boys is very appealing.The first round game came slap bang in the middle of the dismal run ofresults and confidence was low. Half-Back needed to Gee up his men asthey travelled away to Ebbsfleet of the national league. A 1-1 draw sawa return to the Kingsmeadow where a 2-0 win secured safe passage to the next round. Page 5
