  1. Absolutely gifted Burton a goal, then pushed well for the equaliser. Pretty gutting as they didn’t look like scoring anyway, but at least it ends the losing streak. Two weeks off now because of 3 national team call ups!
  2. Bollocks to the ships log
  3. Reading this thread makes me sad. I think I got pretty close to the end but then couldn't work out where to go. As it's so non-linear I don't know how to find the solution to the specific bit I'm missing in a guide without spoiling everything else that's left.
  4. I'm feeling a bit more nervous about our trip to Shrews after hearing big Ollie Palmer is out. It turns out he wasn't fit to play Arsenal after all and injured his calf. Our replacement target man Aaron Pressley (on load from Brentford) is ok but hasn't quite got the same presence yet.
  5. They put out a really decent squad and the first 15 minutes we were frighteningly outclassed. Shame we gave away the unnecessary penalty because we recovered a bit after that. Ramsdale didn't play. Saka looked absolutely unreal when he came on. He got a nice round of applause from us when he did as well.
  6. We’ve had some decent ones recently @neoELITE, Marcus Forss banged in 4 for Brentford last night, and of course Aaron Ramsdale who I’’d guess we’re facing tonight, but I get your point that they’re the exception. Anyway, on the train and surrounded by Chelsea fans.
  7. Well it's one up from the the EFL trophy! 45% of the ticket sales means it should be a decent chunk off the stadium debt. 30/1 seems good value if it is an Arsenal U23 side, their substitutes finishers should get them out of trouble though. Lol, thanks transfermarkt.com
  8. I'm hoping we dust ourselves off after the defeat to the temporary League 1 leaders () and put up a good fight against the almost-as-scary Arsenal tonight. We've not played them for a while! A few of our players who were last-minute withdrawals on Saturday seem to have miraculously recovered. There's a nice article about us in the Grauniad.
  9. Morecambe 3-4 AFC Wimbledon, another ridiculously high scoring match with us coming from behind. We don't know when we're beaten, but also don't know when we're winning! Goals are coming from all over the squad, and we actually look better without our top scorer last season (Pigott).
  10. First win at a populated Plough Lane yesterday, and to do it against bogey team Oxford and their ex-franchise arse of a manager was all the more sweet. It’s looking like this is going to be a good season after the last few which were a struggle. It’s looking so good that fans are worried how long our players are under contract.
  11. We're only opening one stand for our Papa Johnson's Paint Pizza Trophy match!
  12. Can I have 3 new friends? PM your codes please. I need to prove I’m better than a child!
  13. On recent form I fancied us to get something from the Tractor Boys, but it wasn’t looking likely after their second went in. Thats when we actually started playing and the comeback was on.
  14. As @neoELITE predicted, niggly Gillingham played up to their strengths. I actually wailed when they got a scrappy deflected 97th minute equaliser. Apparently we played a nice musical selection including Fatty Bum Bum and Fatman Scoop for Evans at half time. I'm feeling pretty confident for the season though, we've play a different lineup each game and they've all looked good.
  15. Ha ha, fatty Evans is already notorious amongst our fans, I’m sure he’ll get an appropriate reception @neoELITE
  16. Really wish I could go back tomorrow night for Gillingham, only the 5 hour travelling time putting me off (that and it's sold out again). I keep remembering new things about Saturday like the most of the hardcore all being together in the standing terrace behind the goal apart from a small section who were right next to the away stand. I wonder if they bought season tickets there? Best match I've been to apart from playoffs.
  17. I went to our first proper home game (i.e. actually in Wimbledon) for 30 years yesterday and it was amazing. Old Plough Lane, had atmosphere but was ridiculously 'old school'. I remember standing in those cages you used to get at football grounds not being able to see a thing. Selhurst Park was a really horrible experience all round, Kingsmeadow was better but small and cramped and quite a trek from central London, and not much to do when you're in the area. Location wise Wimbledon is a great place to visit, a choice of stations and a full range of pubs from ropey as arseholes to swanky. Seeing a small gang of Bolton lads chanting 'you can stick you tennis up your arse' looking around Earlsfield made me realise how much new business the nearby places are going to get. I was chatting to a young guy who lives in the stadium ground flats and he said it's the first time he's seen Northeners for years. The actual stadium is nice, it feels small but compact with great views. The TV cameras don't really do it justice because they're in the main stand which is by far the most impressive, the other 3 are 'semi permanent' and will hopefully get upgraded in time. There are bars all over the stadium concourse in the mains stand and loads of street-food and beer trucks parked behind the others. The safe standing section in the South Stand really helps to atmosphere. The match was great, a real rollercoaster. Great to see Nightingale, who has been with he club since he was 8 years old get the first stadium goal. Bolton's penalty was handled ok but the crowd started getting a bit nervous when they took the lead. Their third just after half time seemed to spur The Dons on however. The crowd got behind the attacking and sustained pressure made the penalty seemed inevitable. Then the equaliser sent the crowd through the roof. Walking out I had ringing in my ears which won't help my tinnitus one bit. I'm feeling pretty good about the club now despite the shoestring budget. The team are young but have shown character and we've got a lot of good attacking options off the bench. The academy teams were handing out thank you letters to the fans. Doubling the capacity of our home matches will help balance the books, the matchday experience should lead to some new fans, and will hopefully spur on the team.
  18. Or they could have ripped off or licensed the WHDLoad patches that do the same. They might be using WHDLoad anyway to eliminate disc swapping and crack screens.
  19. The Scorpion Engine is a thing of magic, enabling people to make 50fps 32 colour 8-way scrolling games with no assembly coding. Finally the Amiga is free from the shackles of ropey ST ports!
  20. https://store.steampowered.com/app/1489630/Carrier_Command_2/ Another version of Carrier Command has been released on Steam, confusingly titled Carrier Command 2. It's the fourth version by my reckoning after Hostile Waters and Gaia Mission. The graphics are gorgeous flat 3d, apparently using the Stormworks Search and Rescue engine. There seems to be very low GPU requirements as a result. The user interface is based on the principle of a bridge simulator, you have to run between stations to access different functionality which seems to make things quite hectic if you're the only commander. There is multiplayer support, up to 16 per team, but there seems to only be things worth doing for about five crew per carrier. There's no real campaign, just the default skirmish mode against the AI carrier. It is designed to be VR friendly but it seems to have a lot of room for improvement here. It's pricier than I imagined at £33, and I've seen a few bugs (helicopters seem to crash a lot on landing and can't use their cannons, firing two missiles at once will result in them colliding and blowing up, and of course the inevitable pathfinding issues) but they are releasing patches already. Anyway, I feel like getting it, if only for closure after never completing the original.
  21. I had an Amiga nicely set up on my pi. Multi button support has been added to a lot of the games via WHDLoad and makes a real difference to the playability of a lot of games as a TV console, not just replacing 'up to jump' but also secondary fire for smart bombs and the like. Getting things running without a requiring a mouse and keyboard took a while (then I broke it). The dream would be 2-player Llamatron with the joypad buttons as fire direction. And biplanes with remapped controls.
  22. You're not relegation favourites though, you're 5th, behind us in 4th! Our pre-season has been terrible, our only win was against Metropolitan Police (4 tiers lower), last match was a lost against Scunthorpe (next tier down). We'll really struggle to replace Joe Piggot's 20 goals. I am really looking forwards to the first match in New Plough Lane though.
  23. I'm a Wimbledon fan, don't live locally so have to choose my matches. Last night we played 2 pre-season friendlies at the same time, I think for the reason that some of the lads who would be on loan haven't played much die to interrupted seasons in the lower leagues. The new stadium looks really nice but the test events required to get a safety certificate have been disrupted by COVID. The next one we need to find 4000 people to sit in the main stand against Scunthorpe. I'd love to do it because I doubt I'd get to sit there normally but sadly am already busy that weekend. If anyone is local then tickets are free https://www.afcwimbledon.co.uk/news/2021/july/scunthorpe-tickets-now-available/
