    That bottom six has no Plymouth, Scunthorpe or Southend!

    And look where Oxford and Gillingham ended up.

    What a revival from Wimbledon. Congratulations!

    I believe the run started with beating us and your goalkeeper getting Marquis sent off when your GK pulled him down to the floor. You’re welcome! ;)

    That table really is weird to look at! Well done on staying up in a not too dissimilar way we did 2 years ago.

    See you next season.

    Massive turnaround by Wimbledon. Similar to our own last season, I honestly didn’t see either of us staying up this year only a couple of months back either!

    2019 was a death knell for City fans.
    A series of dissatisfying weekends with the same low grade h00ker. Yes, we got scr3wed weekly, and by Hell have we paid for it :(

    When will your new ground be ready? I think you're always going to struggle at this level while you're at such a non league standard ground.

    Supposedly for the start of the 2020-2021 season - although that is starting to look a mite optimistic...

    You're right, we do really need our own league standard stadium, to be able to step up a level.

    What's causing the hold up? Will it definitely get done or is there a danger that money could run out?

    Whilst you stay at Kingsmeadow you're always going to struggle because it's such a non-league set up and you can't raise any extra money from hospitality and things like that. Get Plough Lane finished and I think you have enough fan base to establish yourselves as a League One club with the potential to get into The Championship.

    Well work has started on the residential development next door, and very early earthworks and drainage have begun on the footballing side of things.

    We've also launched (yet another) crowd funding initiative in the last week, so it's more of a case of how much we'll end up owing the bank when it gets built, rather than if it will get built IYSWIM

    Or further, nothing would surprise me with Wimbledon
    What they've achieved in the past and also as AFC is remarkable
