23rd July 2011- Friendly, AFC Wimbledon 1 Watford 2

I’m conscious that plenty of people never got the whole Wimbledon thing… for me it’s always been something to defend passionately.  Sometimes aggressively.  No aggression here though, no debate, that’s long gone. This is just a bunch of people getting on with supporting their football club, a football club that has elevated itself to League status in only nine years.  An awesome achievement.  So, yes, it’s nice to be here in any circumstances but particularly those. ig has a banner with him to welcome our hosts back to the Football League,  and we’re standing on a mixed terrace, lounging in that relaxed pre-season kind of way and enjoying the welcome dryness of the day, renewing acquaintances missed over the summer.  Life is pretty good.
