Need a minimum of a grand rocking up every home game in the Championship,

And we were getting (back) there.

But then some AFC Wimbledon fans realised that their club was short of money.

I seem to recall the Cougar's had a previous owner who had a substance problem that meant he was out in space for much of the time!

25 quid a ticket.  No offers for children,  no mascot to promote club.  No manger,  players being picked off.  Where is the plan for next season?

Watch Danny Ward’s interview on Sky with Brian Carney after his leaving the Broncos.There is no strategic plan for London.

Depends which definition you go on, he went into space according to NASA and FAA who class space as starting at 50 miles (80km) above the surface. However the Karman Line, much more recognised as being the start of space, is set at 62 miles (100km). Branson's vessel reached about 53 miles altitude.

The funniest thing about Branson's 'space flight' is that it got hardly any media coverage....

Messaged Wimbledon about their ground and parking and received this today (edited couple of previous paragraphs out as not relevant to parking);

Unfortunately we don’t have any parking on site at the stadium and there is limited on street parking nearby. The nearest stations to the ground are Earlsfield which runs from London Waterloo and is about a 15 minute walk of the ground or Wimbledon Park tube station on the District Lane and again is about a 15 minute walk from the ground.

Yea when I looked on google maps there was nothing nearby

The point is Brentford had nothing nearby either but got into an arrangement with a local school, who allowed parking for pre-booked fans as long as the games where on a sat or sun.

Shame that LB / Dons don't seem interested in trying to find something similar. As I am sure that it would have a good uptake.

Also if you have 4 people coming in from a distance its much cheaper for fuel + parking, then it is for 4 seperate train tickets (not to mention your not reliant on sunday trains if you live outside M25)

Yes, if they can something working for 2022 RL season that would help in getting some fans back, who just can't get to PL on Public transport.

Hoping we still have a LB team of some form in 2022 (but thats not an issue Dons can solve nor should they be expected to 🙂 )

Was a fair amount of parking near Brentford if you knew where to look. Having lived in Hounslow and had friends who went to Brentford for the soccer then they had plenty of suggestions. Looking at Google Maps, Wimbledon doesn't seem to offer the same possibilities.

Wimbledon is about as anti car in London as it gets.... Is there any news about any nearby schools/colleges etc offering some parking?

A mate had one of those, a VW Karman Ghia, I don't remember it going into space but I bet he wishes he still had it as the prices are now stratospheric.
