Jacko appointed AFC Wimbledon manager

I’ve had a post entitled ‘What’s next for Jacko’ sat in my drafts for a week, and that question has been answered today after Johnnie Jackson was appointed AFC Wimbledon’s new manager. Terry Skiverton will be his assistant.

AFC Wimbledon 1 Charlton Athletic 1

Next season’s new kit should have a big D on it. If Martin Sandgaard’s black box of analytic data doesn’t include brain cells then it should.

Ryan Inniss made Alex Gilbey look like Mastermind tonight. I don’t think I have ever seen a Charlton player make such a bad tackle. Inniss had six and a bit games to make a claim for a new contract, and now he is suspended for three. I don’t expect we will see him again.

Charlton Athletic 3 AFC Wimbledon 2

Would you rather with 3-2 or 1-0?

A rather rag tag display today by both defences, but we scored more goals so collected another win, which was vital after the excellent one on the road midweek.

Boxing Day game called off

The Addicks’ Boxing Day clash at Wimbledon, the nearest we get to a derby these days, has been postponed due to Covid.

Sparrows Lane was closed earlier in the week due to new cases, although even yesterday Charlton were selling additional tickets for Sunday’s game, and Jacko was hopeful that Akin Famewo, Conor Washington and Josh Davison could all return after 7 days of isolation and no symptoms.

Charlton Athletic 0 AFC Wimbledon 1

Another disappointing but hardly surprising cup night at The Valley. We’ve made so many League Cup 1st Round exits in the last decade another one hardly registers.

League One 2021/22 Review – Part IV

And the final episode of my pre-season look at the league competition.

Using the bookies as my guide, Part I was the considered promotion favourites, Part II was play-off hopefuls, Part III those in mid-table with ambitions and this final Part V are the teams expected to have a relegation battle on their hands.

AFC Wimbledon 2 Charlton Athletic 2

And repeat.

That was different wasn’t it? Let me just put this here ⤵️

“Plenty of huff and puff, the occasional bum off the seat moment, more hands over the eyes moments, saw plenty of the ball, but were sloppy and showed no real goal threat, and then there was another defensive lapse costing a goal.”

That’s what I wrote last Saturday.

Charlton Athletic 5 AFC Wimbledon 2

That was a much better feeling wasn’t it?

It was so enjoyable to watch us attack like that in the 2nd half. We played with great tempo, got the ball out wide quickly, and into the box often. We looked really dangerous everytime we got into their final third and all in front of a noisy Covered End.

League One 2020/21 Preview – Part III

Part III and my final look at our fellow League One teams teams this season. I started in the north in Part I and moved towards the middle of the country in Part II and lastly we have the southern teams for this conclusion.

Karl Robinson had a sticky start to LAC (life after Charlton) but this is his third full season at Oxford United and a sense of optimism fills the town. Robinson’s side fell at the final hurdle a couple of months back but have kept the majority of that squad together.

Late night Deji

About 9pm tonight Charlton’s OS and Twitter burst into life as the club announced the signing on a free transfer of Deji Oshilaja, a 26-year old centre-half. Oshilaja turned down new contract offers with AFC Wimbledon and allowed his contract to run down, leaving in June. Since then he has been on trial at Luton Town, even playing for them last week. Hatters’ manager Graeme Jones was said to be impressed, yet a few days later, he signs for us.

Left back in on loan

Ben Purrington has signed on loan until the end of the season. Purrington is a Rotherham player but has played every league game at Wimbledon this season where he has been on loan.

That alone makes a welcome change to bringing in a loan player that is either returning from injury or an inexperienced young player from a big club that is looking to get some games under his belt. As Lee Bowyer said “the big positive is that he’s played every game at Wimbledon and is ready to go.”

Walking wounded

Last Christmas I gave you my heart
The very next day you gave it away
This year to save me from tears I gave it to Lyle Taylor

Big day for Lyle Taylor tomorrow against his former side for whom played 133 games, and a club he still has strong opinions about. Taylor left Fratton Park on Tuesday night in a protective boot after taking a kick on the foot, but according to the manager nothing will stop Taylor playing on Saturday.

Euell to Wimbledon?

The chairmen of AFC Wimbledon, Shrewsbury Town and Swindon Town have all been busy today.

Dons’ chairman Erik Samuelson removed Neil Ardley from his role at Wimbledon after a hugely successful six years, the Shrews’ very own Roland (Wycherley) moved on John Askey after just five months in the role after he was given the difficult job of rebuilding the side that Paul Hurst built. Hurst was just sacked himself by Ipswich and one would thought he’d be favourite to head back to Shropshire.

Askey’s old team Macclesfield, who are marooned to the bottom of League Two, may offer a route back into management for Askey. Macclesfield have broken the mould of recent promoted National League teams, who have mostly flourished at the higher level, showing what a magnificent job Askey did at the Moss Rose.

It’s the rules

Apparently there was a game tonight, and apparently Tarique Fosu didn’t play. So far so good. And we drew, well lost. On penalties. And, as it turns out, in the most ridiculous rule of all off football time, Fosu was banned from playing, but it didn’t count towards his three-match ban. Yep, EFL you really are..
