And welcome back to the real Wimbledon:

MK Dons my arse! It's not bloody America - we shouldn't do franchises!

You're right, we shouldn't. It happened in Scotland first though- Clydebank- Airdrie United.

Great to see that Newcastle have been able to replace Barton so quickly!

I think a certain Claret will be a happy chappy tonight.

Shouldn't grumble about Millwall's start to the season but...I will  :-\

I mean...only one defeat and four wins in seven competitive matches so far should leave me quite content, especially due to the loss of a couple of strikers during the summer and no real investment in new players. It is, however, the last thing that leaves me feeling that we'd have an even better start to the season if the Sherman in the Chair put his hands in his pockets a bit more. Ok, so he's already invested 6M of his own dosh, albeit with the proviso that he gets it back (hence the sale of Morison to Norwich) at some point. But you'd think that after barely missing out on the Play-offs last season that a more concerted bid (and some decent new squad members) wouldn't go amiss.

Easy to say when it's not your own money, mind...

Could be worse, fancy another keeper beating yours...

Altogether now:

Clownty, Notts Clownty,
Clownty are the team for me!

Why didn't I buy some lucky white heather in Blackpool when I had the chance?

I wondered if, inspired by a certain Blackpool pub and its Interweb stream, I should try to watch some of this afternoon's games via certain "overseas sites". Nah, I thought, I'll just listen on the radio...

Bloody Hell! Forest 1 West Ham 4

Spurs 1 City 5

Man U 8 Arsenal 2

In the time it took me to find a stream it went from 6 - 2 to 7 - 2! Mind you, I did catch the last goal live - sorry Alan!

By the way Al, is it still in Arsene you trust?

Advantage of waiting before buying - Arsenal now firmly in the Champions League.

Disadvantage - absolutely horsed today!

Better splash the cash matey - closing date is Wednesday!

Merson sure spat his dummy out the pram over Arsene, asking for his future to be under close scrutiny at The Emirates (re-named The Letinates  ;)).

Poor showing by the arse, for sure.

Well I`m happy with our lot`s result over the weekend specially after two draws at home, but what a shock with the two results today! I dislike Man U and Ferguson Intensely but on the evidence of the Spurs game monday and this today I can`t see any other Prem team winning the league again (Groan,Moan) with the Possible exeption of City, but even with their money they have got their work cut out.

Looks like one of the Manchester sides will win this year - I wonder if Gareth has any preference?

I suspect that Alan has done a Wenger and "didn't see it"!

Sorry Al.
