Went to Newport Pagnell v MK Dons last night hoping to get a sight of Barry
alas no show, only even younger kids mainly on parade

So had to make do with a few pints and then a few more pints as compensation

3-2 Newport

Can't stand the MK Dons business model, but it worked out alright in the end, didn't it? Wimbledon got to start again and have about ten promotions and their supporters probably had the time of their lives, and now they have their own ground. If they'd stayed in London they'd have have probably spent the last couple of decades miserably dropping divisions without a ground to call their own and with one dodgy owner after another ripping the life out of the club.

My son-in-law is a MK dons fan (yeah I know)
my daughter is Villa so their 8 month old son will also be Villa as as we all know wifeís are the bosses

Heís in his late 20s and was asked the other day who he supported before MK Dons
He said no one Iíve always supported MK Dons
They said no but you must have supported someone before MK ?
And he said iíve never supported anyone else itís always been MK Dons

And there we have the problem in a nutshell a lot of locally born MK dons supporters might be aware of how they came about but werenít old enough or alive to know anything about it
Theyíre just supporting their local club while older people get all involved with the politics and stand on sanctimonious soapboxes About something that happened nearly 20 years ago lots of younger fans wonít have the same investment of hatred towards it simply because they werenít about at the time

Iíve said before if youngsters want to support MK Dons in Milton Keynes good on them, Iíve got more respect for them than the thousands of Man United and Liverpool fans that walk around the city centre, For me itís those 2 that are the true franchise clubs

Well said John. Growing up in the city it was a real football desert. More or less the only games I got to before I was old enough to take myself were the odd Luton game with my best mate and his dad. You'd have to be mid to late 20s to even vauely remember the fuss at the time, and probably 30+ to really care about it.

I would guess with 99% certainty that they probably have the youngest fan base in all the leagues

So you would have a mixed group of 17/18-year-olds going to see their local club who in fairness are not a big club and never will be itís all in all a rubbish atmosphere and not a lot to get excited about but there you go itís watching local live football and having a good time with your mates together

And they have to be lectured to by some old blokes who think they know how everyone should support their Teams

Still wrong that they are in the league - As for Louie Barry he is now so far behind the pecking order at the Villa he urgently needs to up his game this season, possibly his last chance of getting near the first team squad at VP.

Have you given any thought as to how you'd feel about the four hour round trip if they rename and move somewhere else again?

Back home to South London for example.

Genuine question.

Never sure why Arsenal always seem to get away without the same condemnation. They were the original franchise club.

Iíve had zero thoughts about that mainly because I donít care about MK dons in the slightest
I live in the area so I know a little bit about them but have no interest in what they do whatsoever

It's over a two hour round trip for proper Arsenal fans, but nobody cares about them.

That's not very likely is it? If they hadn't moved there probably wouldn't have been a club for them to watch anyway, until somebody started AFC at least, which they did.
